Sacred Cow: Expansions

Are expansions a good thing? We tend to see a lot of expansions come out for games, especially games that are Kickstarter games.  Kenny and Josh discuss which games have good expansions and when perhaps publishers should stop making expansions.  They also discuss when it would be appropriate time for an expansion to come out.  Moreover, they discuss if expansions are worth the money for what they enhance the game for.

Zombicide: Black Plaguebest prices.

This is a game published by Cool Mini or Not (now called CMON).  Josh’s copy of the game is the Kickstarter edition, while Kenny picked up the game after playing Josh’s copy.  Needless to say, both Josh and Kenny enjoy this game not only because of the ability to play it cooperatively with their friends, but also as solo players.  Josh laments about not having the 3D doors, but is happy with the expansions he purchased for this game.  Josh goes into greater detail about other ways he plans to re-implement the game to further extend its value.  Kenny lends his ideas about the game and what he enjoys specifically about the game.
