Will an upgrade kit be needed to play the second expansion with the first edition of the main game?

Just curious because this was required with the first expansion. I bought it, and am glad I did, because it seems to be sold out every where now. So if the second edition needs an upgrade kit, I better get that right away as well.

I mean . . . the expansion is for the second edition of the game.

They make an upgrade kit to turn the first edition into the second edition.

If you have turned your first edition into the second edition you can expand it with second edition expansions such as this one.

If you've got first edition, you'll need the upgrade kit to get to second edition in order to use this. Otherwise your cards will not match in size and things will be goofy.

If you're second edition (or you've already got the upgrade kit from 1st to 2nd edition) then you're ready to go as is. There's no other upgrade required. This will play just fine with the base game alone, or in conjunction with Warriors of Middle Earth.

Ah, you are correct. My mistake. It was a long time ago that I bought these.

For some reason I was thinking that the upgrade kit only made the 1st edition functional with the 2nd edition's 1st expansion, and that potentially a second upgrade kit might be needed to make the first edition functional with the 2nd edition's 2nd expansion.

Thanks to both of you for responding. Now I can go back to continually checking to see when this will actually be released....
