Hi,

I am getting Apex and I thought of also getting 1-2 expansions.

How good are they?
Are they just more variety, and if so how much variety does the base game offers?

Thanks

How often do you think you will be playing? I was given the game and all the expansions as a gift, and I enjoy the game, but haven't been able to get it to the table often enough to use anything but the base game yet.

The main game comes with enough content to keep my playing for a long time, so I would not buy them. Having said that, I believe the company has gone out of business and you might want to pick up the expansions if you can get your hands on them. They may be hard to come by very soon if they aren't already.

They add not only a new species deck, but also a couple more cards for the base set's deck as well as new Prey, Titan, Boss, Minion, Big Game, and Menace cards.

If you can get them, get them!

I agree, if you have the opportunity pick them up (at non-scalper prices) they are worth it. Die Hard LLC has gone bankrupt and future of the license uncertain, but it is a great game!!

I honestly would be Stomping grounds if you were to only pick one, since they add new Apex cards to every class, opening up the opportunity to deck build your apex decks, since the pool of cards is expanded.

In addition, the stomping grounds ability adds another layer of player interaction the game desperately needs.

Thanks.

And between the Saurophagana, Suchomimus and Therizinosauru?

These are all equally "good". Pick the Dino you like best.

I vote get them all because:
1. Since the company is now extinct, these will become harder to find.
2. I thnk each expansion has some environment cards (someone correct me if I'm wrong). So, instead of choosing 7 out of 10 environment cards, you can mix all of the various environments together and you are choosing 7 from 17 or so---this gives a lot more variability in the environment phases.
3. You need them. You deserve them. Splurge.

I say get Stomping Grounds if you can only afford/want to get one expansion.

If you want more Apexes, it really makes sense to them all since they add new environment cards to the pool and more new cards to the base game dinos
