Maybe this should be on Image Comments, but as the rules forbit submitting images found on other websites I just link the picture here.

So it was found from some game reseller website and is looking sweet.

An expansion? Seems to be compulsory for the modern board game. In this case, there is an awful lot in the main box, how much more can they add?

Compulsory in what sense? What does the expansion have that changes the game so dramatically, and what kept the game from being playable as is? Certainly, when my group has played it, we found it playable, or else we would have stopped playing it. Well, we would have been forced to stop playing it if it was unplayable.

this is the art used for the Dunwich Horror creature tokens though, so it could very well be the final box art.

Isn't the Dunwich Horror from the stories invisible? I've got fuzzy memories.

I thought it was always shrouded in mist.
At the very least, it becomes shortly visible in the end and was the described as a mass of writhing worms or some such.
Will have to reread it again before the game comes out.

It was invisible but there was a powder that one could throw at it to make it briefly visible.

It's a simple matter of stimulating your pineal gland. However, you will eventually grow a third eye. Unfortunate.

I think he is just saying it is becoming standard practice to release expansions for games, whether it will significantly improve or fix a game, or not. You guys agree more than you realized.

I believe it was the Powder of Ibn Gahzi.
