As a player new to Descent (but one brought over by the co-op potential of Road to Legend), I've been eyeing these "analog" variants for some time. However, when I went to add one to my cart, I was aghast that the cost was close to a big box expansion.

Naturally this inflation is due to scarcity, and the unlikeliness of a reprint. Road to Legend is likely superior mechanically (though I'm not sure if the loot system is the same), but currently RtL is only 2 scenarios at most..

Worth $40?

Nope. Where are you seeing it for $40??? That seems ridiculously high.

EDIT: CSI has this in stock for $12, which is what I'd be willing to pay for it.

Amazon.

Thanks for the CSI heads-up.

Forgotten Souls and the other co-op expansions are print-on-demand. They are not manufactured and can be bought on FFG's website at all times.

RtL is campaign, the co-op scenarios are all one-shots with leveling and looting mid-game. There's reason to play both.

It will be all when there are more than 2 (1.5?) options available.

Till then, these will help validate the expenditure given the two player emphasis in my household.

Definitely not worth $40. It's a functional cooperative scenario but isn't exactly mind-blowing. And component-wise it's just a couple small decks of cards. It's probably worth $20 shipped, but I personally wouldn't pay more than that.

Seems to have limited replay value as well.

Still a purchase, for sure, but I'm happy to have found both co-op scenarios for their original price.

As long as you're not constantly playing, the replay isn't too bad, but it is just one scenario, it's not a full expansion. Also, there are 3 co-op scenarios.

True. I lack Lair of the Wyrm, so I ignore the existence of the last one.
