Fantasy Flight Games is one of the pioneers of large scale LCG (Living Card Game) format games, wherein fixed, nonrandom, expansions are produced allowing players to expand their card games with available cards but at a fraction of the cost of CCGs (Collectible Card Games).

It started with the conversion of "A Game Of Thrones" from the already established CCG version to its current day LCG version. Shortly afterwards, Call Of Cthulhu was similarly converted from CCG to LCG format. Afterwards, came Warhammer: Invasion. Just released is the Lord Of The Rings LCG, and Blood Bowl Team Manager is waiting in the wings.

Unfortunately, there were a couple speed bumps. The games listed above all feature a "3 copies of a card per deck allowed" in the rules. BUT the starter/expansions AS INITIALLY RELEASED did not have 3 copies of a card in the expansion for many of the cards, which seemed counter to the spirit of LCG. That is, you purchase ONE copy and you've effectively expanded your game experience without needing to buy multiple copies of any one product. For example, the starting boxes generally feature 52 single copy unique cards. And the INITIAL set of chapter packs contained forty cards: three copies of ten unique cards [10 x3] (good), yet one copy of ten unique cards (bad) [10 x1].

After feedback, Fantasy Flight Games eventually changed the way they release their LCG products such that, at least for AGoT, CoC and W:I, the expansions now feature THREE copies of each card. So chapter packs are a little more expensive, containing sixty cards, but have three copies of twenty unique cards [20 x3].

As of this writing, they are even reprinting some AGoT and CoC products in the NEW format to meet the THREE copies per card standard.

At this point, I realized that I had purchased ONE copy of everything in FFGs LCG product line. But was/am unsure WHICH products have the old standard, which products are definitely going to be reprinted, which products have yet to be reprinted.

It gets a little confusing, because the reprints, with the 3x copy standard, are probably not going to get a separate geek entry from the legacy LCG versions.

So I decided I would do some research, and put it out here for everyone else who might be in a similar quandary. Also to give a central location to find out if/when any of the legacy 1x copy products are being reprinted in 3x format.
