Question: As we get down to the final hours of the Kickstarter campaign, which of the add-ons are you thinking of purchasing? I'm on the fence with a few of them, although I think I know which way I'm leaning. Just curious about the thoughts of the community.

I'm getting pretty much everything.

It's easier to say what I'm not getting:

- the dice bag
- 3D scenery pack
- tile pack

Still thinking about:

- hunter custom dice
- Rat (Fireteam Zero crossover)
- Nyx (Midarra crossover)
- Peter Constant (Lobotomy crossover)

I'm personally going with:

Castle Dracula (Fun!)
Gugadeth and the Elder Guardian (I have to admit... I want to paint that bastard atop his Unicorn!)
3D Scenery Pack (I think this will really help bring the game further to life)

I will be picking up he following add ons:
Castle Dracula
Vibora and Jararaca
The Varacolaci
Gugradeth and the Elder Guardian
The night is dark Expansion
Brith
One set of dice (not sure which)


The stretch goals and Stalker pledge add enough hunters, I'm interested in the additional vampires plus he miniatures are just amazing, most likely going to come up with custom crossover cards to use them in MASSIVE DARKNESS and DESCENT 2ND

hello there

The Night is Dark
Castle Dracula
probably the Varacolaci

think $10 per extra hunter is too much when we got so many as stretch goals

think Gungadeth or whatever he called looks good but where would he be used? too big!

my priorities are extra floor tiles and hunts/campaigns

None, I dropped my EB today. Too many add-ons for a first time creator. Hope it works out folks!

hunters pledge
The night is darker (5/6 player expansion)
scenery pack

5/6 players addon is a must since my gaming group is that large.
Thought very thoroughly about the Slayer pledge, but decided the base pledge plus 5/6 expansion has enough of everything. If we've played through all 18 hunts and want more I can still buy "from blood to dust" at retail.

"Spending 131 $ plus shipping for a boardgame is enough" claims my conscience.

Geoff I wish I caught your EB

My thinking about add-ons is following:
I am looking for more variety, more replayability so:

The night is darker 35
Veracolaci 20
Dracula 30

Are my must have

I do not take any hunters add-ons - We have many of them in slayers pledge.

What I am not sure about are Elders.

We have already 7 of them in Slayers pledge and probaly 8th is coming.
Then 1 in Veracolaci, 2 in Dracula. So before any other add-on I have 10-11 Elders to form their deck and have more surprises when I silve the Encounter token

Regarding elders we have 3 more expansions:
Nyx 10
Vibora and the Jararaca 15
Gugadeth and the Elder guardian 20
Brith 15

So we can increase the total number of Eldera to 15. And now the question is what is worth out money?

I am thinking of Brith and Vibora and Jararaca because Nyx is cross over I do,not need and I have the biggest problem with Gugadeth because it is a great sculpt but i can get more scuplts in Vibora or Veracilaci.

If we talk about the last four expansions I listed what are your thoughts?

I'm sitting on a hunter EB pledge, and I'm only going to upgrade it to slayer level, nothing else. And only getting that for the expansion, think I'll sell the extra characters pack.

Most add-ons don't seem to offer any real gameplay extras.
Only tempted with the Dracula addon, but it's already an expensive game so going to pass on that aswell.

I'm thinking of adding
Scenery Pack
Nyx
Gugadeth

Mainly because they're exclusives and I think those are pretty cool looking. I'll hold off on the expansions when they get released.

This is exactly what I am planning to add in the PM and also the 5/6 player expansion. I only pledged for a basic slayer eb for now.

Depending on how long the PM stays open I will probably add everyting

I'm certainly getting Nyx, but I'm on the fence on weather to get Rat or the black dice.

I’m going for the Slayer EB
Gugadeth, he looks really cool!
The night is darker, not because of the extra players but for the extra difficulty that you can get with less players
Nyx, she looks amazing too
3D scenery pack, nice touch
And maybe a dice set, not sure yet…

Very interesting to see how everybody is taking different stuff. Shows that DGG really provided a varied experience that appeals to many different tastes. It should also make everyone's copy a little unique.

I'm already getting Nyx via Middara, I'll just need to find a way to print off her cards.

I went for Slayer pledge and just got the stuff that adds tiles, too and in my view thus more replayability.
Dracula, 5/6 player expansion. Maybe, during PM money won't be an issue, than I might get the varacol...thingie, Snake lady, Brith, scenery and/or dice.
Gugadeth doesn't appeal to me at all,same as Asian themed hunters or the crossovers. Don't know about the Crawlers. If I knew what they do, I might be tempted.

Crawlers automatically spawn when another vampire appears (thralls?) so suddenly you're facing a swarm instead of a single vampire.
