I uncorked Mansions of Madness 2E and noticed the Conversion Kit (all character cards from 1E and some tokens).

Question: Is it worth gaining the 1E and expansions (Call of the Wild and Forbidden Alchemy) to use all items like character, monsters and maps?

Or do I better wait for the Suppressed Memories and Recurring Nightmares expansions? https://twitter.com/FFGames/status/761615232842207232 and https://twitter.com/FFGames/status/761612669191393280?

Your toughts, BGG?

Wait for SM and RN. The first edition is way too expensive right now to make it worth it for you...unless of course you think you may want to play with first edition rules on occasion.

Only buy 1st Ed if you want to play 1st Ed. If you just want the bits, wait for the upcoming expansions.

Honestly, everything you need to use the conversion kit is right there in the kit. Sure, having the actual miniatures is nice, but you can just use the monster tiles instead. And for the investigators just pick the charactercard you like to play and use another miniature to proxy.

The only difficult thing is the map tiles. But even these can be substituted with a similar tile from 2e with the appropriate door or wall tiles on top. Or else you can even draw them on a piece of paper.

There is absolutely no need to get the first edition if you don't intend to actualy play it.

What about the opposite? I have the 1st edition and a few of the small expansions. I got the app for 2nd edition- do I need to buy the 2nd edition to use the app to run 1st edition games? Or can I just play 1st edition with the app?

The app only runs 2nd ed. You can't run 1st ed games with it.

Indeed it's only for the 2E with "elements" from the 1E. By the way, the 2 expansions for the 2E are announced!

Eek. That's more (for both) than what I paid for the base game. Best start saving

The expansion release date has apparently been pushed back a week to 22nd August as the App update isn't quite ready yet. At least one store has already been selling the expansions anyway.

I'm sure you mean September, not August.

Anyways, there was someone posting in the other thread that they already bought the expansions in their FLGS. Of course this won't help with the new scenarios if the app isn't updated.

Given I just saw the 1st edition and its 2 big box expansions sell for £385!! on eBay (£330 for the 2 expansions), this now looks like bloody good value
