Expansion Completion?

Supporter

Happy Friday Everyone.  I'm wicked excited because I just received (after returning TEG and TEGBTB) The Rise of Fenris.  I can't wait to try it out.  But I do think I'm going to wait until I can get it out with a group and try to complete the campaign with others.

I'm also excited because my shipping label has been created for Root: The Underworld Expansion.  Can't wait to get it to the table and try it out.  Maybe solo maybe with a group, definitely both at some point.

It got me thinking about a question.  Is anyone here an Expansion Comletionist (making up words).  I've not completed any yet, and generally I just get the Expansions that I think will add to my gaming experience.  I know I will skip one expansion for Viticulture.  And I plan on skipping Scythe: The Wind Gambit Expansion just because I don't think it'll add to my game experience.  Although I may down the line.

However, I full intend to get any expansions that go along with Root.

I’ve done it with Dominion. I think that’s it other than games with just one expansion or something simple like that

I have not found a game that I am so gung-ho for that I am going out of my way to get the expansions. Quacks is definitely in consideration for the 5th player board and if Gaia Project ever gets an expansion you better believe I am getting that.

Yes I’m a completionist. It’s really bad for Imperial Assault.

We know that's true. Ha.

I'm the same as you Scott :)

If I had owned Root then I'd definitely complete it. For any other games, I haven't encountered one that make me want to do that. The next closest one for me would be Viticulture. Tuscany completes it for me and my wife but with us loving it so much, I'll probably get the Rhine Valley cards because the more I play, the more I'm feeling the need to throw in more cards that will dilute the deck from all those somewhat random VP awarding visitor's cards.

Yeah, and the Rhine Valley cards actually completely replace the base Visitor Decks to focus on engine building instead of random points.  The Moor Visitors sound just like they are (more visitors).  Gotta love the puns.  That's why I won't complete Viticulture.  I'll never play with other visitor cards besides the Rhine Valley.  Based on how you've spoken about the game though I'm sure you'd always play with the Rhine Valley once you get them.

OHHHH they completely replace it! I see, well that sure sounds good. I'll definitely be getting it in the near future then. My wife likes to focus on the engine-building aspect of the gameplay too so I think she'll like it.

What are your acronyms at the top of your post?

And I am definitely not a completionist when it comes to expansions, but if there's a game a really love and an expansions is well-received, I'm pretty likely to get it. I got the Pearlbrook expansion for #Everdell and I backed the campaign for the next two, so I guess I am a completionist for that game, haha. I will most likely get the expansion(s) for #Dune, and if they make any for #Oceans, I will probably get those too, assuming they are any good.
