Hi, I've bought Power Grid and I saw this game in the catalog of Rio Grande. I'm willing to buy this game but when I was looking for it I found another "Arctic Scavengers". My doubt is: what's the difference between these two games?


1.- http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/41933/arctic-scavenge...

2.- http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/174226/arctic-scaveng...

The second one seems to be cheaper that the 1st one, but it says it has the Base game + HQ + Recon. That's what is confusing me: Is the 2nd one the same game as the 1st one but it includes an expansion and somehow it's cheaper? Or are those different games? Can anyone please help me?


Thank you, and I hope I've been clear with my doubt.

Greetings, gamers!

They are the same game. The Base+HQ+Recon box contains everything in the earlier version of the base game (Base+HQ) plus additional expansion content (Recon).

So do you suggest to buy the Base+HQ+Recon game? Since the other one is just the base game and is more expensive than the combo pack.

The first one is actually the base Arctic Scavengers game with the HQ expansion. There was a re-release recently where they put the, separately released, Recon expansion into the same box with the previous release (hence base+HQ+Recon). The second one is cheaper probably because the first one is out of print.

If you want to buy Arctic Scavengers, the combined edition (your listed number 2, Arctic Scavengers: Base Game+HQ+Recon) is definitely the way to go.

Cheers!

The game was out of print for a while so the prices for the original edition ended up out of whack
