I think you invented Gloomhaven 2.

Isaac has mentioned an expansion to Gloomhaven, not due until 2019 at the earliest (and I would guess late 2019 if that).

If you are interested, I think it would be better to buy it now. If you still like it and want more of it by the time the expansion arrives, then you can get that then. It will be an even more ridiculous deluge of content if you just wait for that to release and get everything all at once.

I think he was kidding, but this response is pretty much gold.

If by Gloomhaven 2 you mean 2nd Edition, be aware that the currently available release is 2nd Edition.

Or of you mean Founders of Gloomhaven, that's absolutely nothing like Gloomhaven.

When people ask, "What's the difference between Canadians and Americans?", this is the kind of thing sociologists point to.

While waiting for any supposed "Gloomhaven 2" wouldn't be prudent, in some cases waiting might be beneficial. Demand still outpaces supply last I checked, which has led to some places raising their price for the game above MSRP, but more copies of the game are still being produced and made available to retailers, so if you don't absolutely need the game right away, it isn't worth paying jacked up prices for it, so you can save yourself some money by being patient (and possibly keeping an eye out for places selling it at MSRP or a bit under)

The current version of Gloomhaven is the "2nd Printing". Isaac said he wants to avoid the term "2nd Edition" because the changes between the 1st and 2nd printing were so minor.

There is no need to pay above MSRP for GH. I check at least twice a week still for friends and the general gaming community, and frequently find copies for sale at or below MSRP.

As for the original question. Not sure what you mean by Gloomhaven 2, but it could be three different things:
1. the 2nd printing of Gloomhaven (which is out now)
2. Founders of Gloomhaven (which is a completely different game, only related in that they are the same world).
3. The true sequel to Gloomhaven that Isaac announced he is working on.

In the latter case, Isaac stated he started working on it, but does not expect to finish it this year. At best, we may see a kickstarter in early 2019 followed by fulfillment closer to the end of 2019/beginning of 2020. Also, given that it is pretty much more of the same and expected to be compatible with "Gloomhaven 1," I see no reason to wait for it.

Just my 2 cents.

The second installment can be disappointing.

I say wait for Gloomhaven: Copperneck Drift.
