Looks like there is going to be also some new free content to download (2 scenarios of 30 minutes) but I am not sure that I understood that correctly, maybe some French user can help with the translation.

You got everything correct. The 2 30-minutes scenarios could be demoed at FIJ de Cannes in February and will be soon available for download ("only a matter of time" is the exact quote).

I don't think you can get it... If I understood correctly they are used by Space Cowboys in the events to show to the public how the game plays.

Not everyone does a great pnp job which personally hurts this game, I for one would be more than happy to pay for professionally manufactured copies of the tutorial and 3 pnp scenarios

I am also happy to pay for new content but it is also true that is nice to try the game before buying it with the pnp.
We will have 6 new "big" adventures this year with unlock 2 and 3. More 30' pnp scenarios will be a good addition. The more the better

This is a brand new box and does not require the first release to play. With this reasoning, it would make sense to me if they were to include a new training scenario like in the first box. Perhaps they will put one of the print and play scenarios in this box for people who are new to the game?

True, that would be nice but they can also put in the box the introduction scenario again. I of course hope for your idea but I will probably play the pnp before the release of the new stand alone box.

Print and play is a great option for people willing to do that. But I'm not prepared to, not worth the hassle of printing, cutting and seeing the cards before you play, just doesn't appeal to me at all. I'd happily pay for the set though so it's a shame they aren't going to release them professionally.

It did. They posted the link on March 31:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxdxTLO1xP5KNVN0czRVMGVsY1U...

The announcement was in French, and, as such, so is the link that followed the French timeline.

It's 5th Ave. (The original post said Temple of Ra at a later date [Spring])

It's not in English.

Elsewhere they've said ~two weeks for English.

Sure. 5th and Ra are both ~30 minutes (per the tric trac link) and SC calls 5th a "demo" (rough translation) in the post where they linked to the pdf.

Why though, why keep releasing demos after the initial tutorial scenario explained the rules well, who are they for?

People (like me) who enjoy free mini scenarios?

Suppose that's what I'm asking, are they like regular scenarios but last 30 minutes, or are they easier and hand leading, meant mostly to show you how the game works?

I found this but the 2 30 minutes scenarios are not there yet. I suppose they will be in the easy zone btw (more or less like the elite)

Check out The Elite for what these next ones should be like. It's not that it's "easy," per se, but it definitely is a smaller scenario. And it doesn't do any of the hand holding of the Tutorial. Several people were not even able to figure it out. I'd imagine these next two will behave similarly...

Thanks for posting that. I really like what they've done there, classifying them more as an adventure or an escape room, that's good to know. And also the difficulty is very helpful, they should make that image more prominent on their site and especially on the app.
