Which of the two expansions do you suggest, Urban Structures or 2nd Story?

I only own the 2nd story expansion, and it's great. It comes shrink wrapped (no box) and will fit in the Flash Point box. My only complaint is that I'm not going to be able to fit another expansion , and I want to get Urban Structutes.

They're both awesome if you enjoy the base game. I'd probably get Urban Structures first as the two sides of the board have more variety than 2nd story buildings (the 2nd story buildings are different but they're both 2 story buildings). The structural engineer role is also very cool and comes with Urban Structures.

Get them both though if you play this game regularly, they're cheap and phenomenal (they are tough too).

Edit - I fit everything into one box, the lid just doesn't close all the way so you can't stack anything on top of it.

I have both and my box doesn't close, but that's also because I'm trying to keep the tokens organized. You just live with it.

Can't give any advice on which expansion is better though, I just got them both recently and haven't gotten to play them yet.

I strongly recommend the 2nd story expansion of the 2.

I enjoy the additional mechanics found in Second Story (windows & ladders), but if you're looking for highest difficulty level, then you need Urban Structures...that skyscraper building is just plain nasty

I picked up both at the same time - whatever came with the tokens.

I've got both and they do fit int the box - with the 3D firefighters and the flat firemeeples. Barely and the box weighs a ton. The key is fitting the 3D firefighters bases along the "slot" between the boards and the box as well as storing the tokens in something really flat. I use the cases from old cassette tapes.

I use Altoid tins. My co-workers know they need to save Altoid tins for my games.
