My girlfriend and I love this game and we really enjoyed the Monster Box expansion.
I have heard of Dueling Club but really enjoy the the co op nature of Hogwarts Battle.

Does anyone think it's likely we will get another expansion in time?

Nothing has been announced beyond Dueling Club.

[Edit: I'm with you - I'm not interested if it's not co-op, but hopefully lots of people who don't like the co-op nature of the game will be able to enjoy it now ]

Gencon is right around the corner, so if anything will be announced, it will be at that time.

There were rumblings of a new expansion called "Dumbedore's Army" that, up until a couple days ago, was already in the BGG database. Details are in the below thread, but the development team at Forrest-Pruzan chimed in saying it wasn't an official expansion produced through USAopoly, so it was likely a fanmade one, and as such the BGG entry was removed.

Possible New Main Game Expansion?

Based on the last few comments in that thread, though, something new is coming soon.

I mean, you could bring in stuff from Fantastic Beasts, although I really want a Luna for the base game, and Ginny would be fantastic to balance out an equal amount of male and female characters.

Luna is already in the first expansion: Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle – The Monster Box of Monsters Expansion

Yes, but you can't play her until game 7 of the base game..

Sure you can. In the early games where the other heroes don't have their abilities, you just ignore hers.
And in the middle games, you just figure out a way to tone hers down slightly (though if I remember right, her ability seemed a bit more on par with the Game 3 abilities of the other heroes anyway.

I also regularly use Luna to play with 5 people. All you need is some way to track health of the 5th person, the player board is not actually necessary.

Luna doesn't come with a player board? That's unusual.

I was wondering if it was possible to just pick up Luna to go with my set, rather than picking up the entire expansion just to get her. That would make it easier for my groups, as there tends to be 5 of us rather than 4.

They never officially raise the player count to 5, and there's already 4 of the player boards in the base. So there's no reason for them to include one in the expansion box.

I believe they've actually discouraged playing five players since it makes balance issues even worse.

Idk what I’d even want from an expansion... I think I fear the negatives of adding more cards too much. I think the only thing extra I want is base game playable Ginny and Luna (I don’t consider her one character card balanced for the base game).

Otherwise, the only thing I’d really want is a second edition of the game that streamlines or restyled the gameplay so future expansions can actually be a thing and not break the game as I felt Monster Box of Monsters kind of did.

We just did a full playthrough last week and really wished that they had included a full set of cards for Luna. Game 1, 3, and 7, in addition to Box 1. It doesn't seem like it would have taken much to include that and it would be all official.

Heck, I would buy a small expansion that just had a few playable heroes. Game 1/3/7 Dumbledore, Ginny, or Forge.

I'm with you on Team Forge! I got impatient waiting for an expansion so I took matters into my own hands and made my own Fred and George Hero decks and game 1/3/7 Player cards. Still working on Box 1 versions of them.
