So I keep reading that once you've bought the Overlord expansion, its kind of worth buying a 2nd base game... not essential, but worthwhile since the overlord expansion doesn't actually have a 2nd board, plus it uses chits rather than figures.

So, what is the benefit of buying overlord expansion? Just the rulebook/campaign book? I'd think thats available online, no?

I only see rules, extra cards & dice and chits in the set. But the 2nd base game gives you all of that except the rules.

Is there a difference between 2 base game decks & an overlord deck? I assumed it was just another copy.

Im sure there is something, so I thought best to ask. thanks.

You buy the Overlord mostly for the cards:

thanks for the link. Exactly what I was looking for.

I will definitely hold off on this expansion for the time being.

The Overlord cards are very beneficial in playing Overlord - much different to that of the standard deck.
