While the game is based on cards, as far as i get it, this expansion will not net us a new map, nor new monsters (or other counters of any kind)
Just cards (and GOOs etc., but these are cards also more or less.)

This is not a bad thing, but why the big Box?
Selling a bit of air?

(Don't get me wrong, i think i will naturally buy it)

Goldie the FFG packer tried to fit the 400+ cards in one of the small expansion/silver line boxes.

"This box is too small!" she exclaimed.

So Goldie tried a Twilight Imperium coffin box, but the cards slid all around.

"This box is too big!" she exclaimed. (Goldie is a bit excitable.)

So Goldie tried a large expansion box, and exclaimed, "This box is just... well frankly, it's a bit large, but I'm not going to go to our printer with new dimensions for a vacuum box and pay the retooling fee for one damed product...

"Bear with it!"

Actually, I see the Big Box as a bonus. Two of my large boxes have been fitted with crafting foam dividers, and I estimate that when I re-design the cases I'll need three large boxes to fit everything (easily done, now that I have five big boxes total).

Plus, now there's a "no-chit" large box complement to Dark Pharaoh's small box! Nevermind, a revised "Dark Pharaoh" with chits has been announced. Joy!

i think there will also be gates. they would expand the other expansions.

and perhaps something snazzy like.... living vortexhoppers or something like that. a moving, living location perhaps.
i hope, at least.

but i love cards also.

I like that moving-location idea!

Maybe they'll include some unstable locations for the Kingsport board....

There are those who look at things the way they are and ask why . . . I dream of things that never were and ask why not

That would really increase the difficulty level of KH. If the rift guardian got sucked into an open gate, the rifts would really start to come into play more often.
