Looks like this expansion is again unavailable. Considering there are now so many other expansions, is this one a must-have for the game? Or is just in the 'nice but not essential' category?

Thanks!

None of the expansions are necessary (Forsaken Lore has a good argument though). Strange Remnants is probably the easiest small box expansion. So if you feel the game is getting too hard, it is a good one to slot in. It is perfectly fine to wait for a reprint, I would never recommend spending above MSRP for an out of print expansions.

I see this term used wrongly so often... Sorry I have to be an advocate again but maybe it spreads: "Out of print" means that a game has left production cycles and will never be reprinted again - therefore becomes more of a collectible item and is getting harder to obtain. Therefore it technically can never be out of print again.
What you mean is exactly what you wrote in the text: the game is temporarily unavailable; between print runs; or, as most usually put it, "out of stock".

Sorry again... this got longer again then intended.

tl;dr: "out of print" != "out of stock"
