I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Better to have it and not want it, than want it and not have it.

You get to a certain point and a Gamers Lantern starts to look like a good idea. I'm much the same as you and am almost at the stage of just biting the bullet !

I was in the same boat. Started out just 'Base + Gamblers Chest', added in Lion Knight, Dung Beetle Knight,Flower Knight, and Gorm.

Then Ancient Gold Lantern + Campaigns of Death + First Hero.

Then, well, right into the Gamers Lantern + Extra Rule Book + Super Survivors + The First Messengers.

playing solo and playing with people, both give the exact same game experience. Well apart form the potential arguments

First off, please edit you post to a more readable one. All the "Qty: 1 x $150.00"-lines really clutter up the post.

Secondly, you seem to be missing some of the Inverted Mountain expansions. In order to use the Inverted Mountain Expansion you need:
- Frogdog
- Oblivion Mosquito
- Nightmare Ram
- Black Knight
- Gryphon
- Pariah
- Red Witches
- Inverted Mountain

Now on to the real advise:
I expect myself to playing this game a lot solo also. So I tried to determine what would keep my interest in the game fresh. Since I never played solo board games before, I looked to the things that keep me invested in video games.
For me that is:
- Stories (don't even have to be good)
- Alternate rules
What doesn't do it for me is:
- Extra monsters
- More items
- Trying to get 100%

So I tried to prioritize expansions which do that:
- Gambler's Chest: Adds the advanced rule book (and a lot more)
- First Hero: Adds the option to skip ahead to lantern year 12 or 20. Not haveing to start at LY1 every time I lose is probably a great way to keep me interested.
- Nightmare Ram: Adds dungeons
- Red Witches: Adds a showdown with 3 monsters instead of the usual 1
- Pariah: Adds a short (3LY) campaign (with the Red Witches expansion)
- Oblivion Mosquito: Adds Encounters to the game (Note: I originally missed that the GC also includes encounters, but I still want this for variation)
- Gryphon: Adds the People of the Nest campaign
- Black Knight: Adds a short (5LY) campaign
- Frogdog: the only missing expansion for....
- Inverted Mountain: Adds a whole new campaign

Since everything I had selected so far was coming in wave 4 (except GC in wave 3), I decided to add some Wave 2 expansions to bridge the gap:
- Dragon King: Adds the People of the Stars campaign
- Lion Knight: Adds a tactics deck and is said to have an interesting story.

Lastly I added Screaming God because of the awesome sculpt. I don't know how much impact the 5LY extension to the campaign is, but I could always use it with First Hero for a (short) high level campaign.

Yes, me too. I thought I would get a twinge of buyers remorse after I changed pledge levels, but it feels good to not be constantly thinking and re-thinking my pledge.

Now it's time to wait patiently, and try and forget KD:M !
