NINE new encounter sets, all required for the "Dwarrowdelf" set of adventure packs to follow. I wonder how many scenarios this box will have?

It has three, and then another adventure cycle revolves around this big set

It says 3 scenarios. I guess it is 3 per scenario, means we get more variety with this series of adventures I guess. Better to have more smaller sets than to have less larger ones that get reused more.

The cards we can see so far for the player seem rather powerful, I hope this doesn't mean older cards will be less useful.

See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

The article says three new scenarios in this box. There are also a fair number of player cards.

I'm wondering how many cards are in this set. My guess is somewhere around 200.

I believe it says 165 cards are included.

Sounds awesome! And, that they're aiming for the holidays gives me hope we'll see the next three small expansions on schedule, too. Great news!

"It’s also important to note that you will need these new encounter sets to play the scenarios of the subsequent Dwarrowdelf Cycle of Adventure Packs."

If you don't buy this box, the 2nd cycle of expansions doesn't apply to you.

Cue 500,000 whine threads on BGG.

I don't think I can stand the moaning.

It will be nice to get out of the dank forests and marshes and into the glamorous and cozy Dwarven mountain halls.

glad to see they got the "three copies of each player card" thing figured out for this one.

Much in the same fashion that one would need the core set in order to play any of the Shadows of Mirkwood encounters? This is no surprise, really.

Edit for taking back my whole reply since knowing he was being sarcastic.

I'm guessing that only about 60 of the 165 will be player cards. Three scenarios (overlooked that in my excitement) should be 9 cards, 2 heroes, then 30-35 encounter cards for each scenario. So 60 cards (3 each, 5 different for each of the 4 spheres) sounds about right.

So, will the Boromir card have this quote: "THEY have a cave troll."

Or this:

"What new devilry is this?"

Inquiring geeks want to know...

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

There will be 9 new encounter sets. Maybe there will be some significant overlap in the encounter decks for the different scenarios like there is in the core set.

I'm glad to see they seem to have taken the suggestion of using more encounter sets which should encourage the creation of even more custom scenarios.
