Hi fellow boardgamers.

Because soon a reprint of a game will be released and at the same time an expansion for the same game (talking about Catacombs and Catacombs: Cavern of Soloth) and I totally want this game, so I wondered if it would make sense to buy the game and expansion at the same time. Some of you may know that the first print was sold out pretty quickly and I don't want to end up wanting the expansion later and not getting it anymore cry

So I created this geeklist to see if people tend to buy expansions before even playing the base game and what's their reason for doing so.

So please feel free to add your games and expansions and tell me your reason for doing so!

Hopefully I won't feel guilty buying another game and expansion cool

First game I bought the expansion before playing the base game just because I thought it is so cool to create my own scenarios and playing the user created ones.

Well it turned out that I don't have a regular gaming buddy for this game cry
and now I haven't even played half the scenarios which come with the base game

Another one I bought the expansion with the base game.
The reason?
I don't know, I think it was cheap

Till now I haven't played the expansion yet!
Well not entirely true. I used the buildings from the expansion straight away so I don't know how the base game plays without them
but I have never used the character cards from the expansion.

I've yet to play High Frontier. I bought the base game first, and the expansion shortly thereafter. Three reasons:
1) I was concerned that it might soon be hard to acquire or go OOP. (I see it's still available at GameSurplus.)
2) I wanted to get the solo variant.
3) It just seemed right to get an even bigger slice of the solar system.

Actually I "bought" (asked buddies who went to Essen to get one copy for me) this expansion months before I bought the game itself. I think I would have bought this one if it costed 1-2 Euros as well.
Luckily I really like the game and find this expansion is really an integral part of the game.

After reading/watching reviews of the base game I was sold on it, but Z-Man had not released the US Version of the game yet so in the meantime I went ahead and picked up this expansion from the BGG Store.

I just got it my base game last week and it hasn't hit the table yet...but it will soon as it is high on my gaming priority list.

Yep. I bought this at or around the same time but definitely before playing the base game. It backfired. I really disliked WotR. I'll try to give it another shot someday so maybe it will work out.

Another in the "failed games that everyone else likes." Like Puerto Rico and San Juan. Assumed I would like this game as well so bought the expansion before playing the base game. Hated it. Luckily this was still in shrink and went in a trade just recently.

Technically, this isn't paid for but I pre-ordered the expansion even before getting the base game. Safe bet as I love all things C&C. But I have now played the base game and love it so this will be safe once I get around to actually paying for and having this in hand.

And instead of adding a bunch more entries, I will just lump these together as games I got with the expansion because either they were included together or I had read they were more complete that way.

- Mare Nostrum (and mythology expansion)*
- Roads & Boats (and &tcetera)
- Blue Moon (and all the expansions) Actually I think I got all the expansions first as a bundle on Tanga and then bought the base game AFTER
- BattleLore (and the Hill Giant)
- A Game of Thrones (and A Clash of Kings and a Storm of Swords)
- Container (and a 2nd Shipment and a set of special containers)
- Snow Tails (and leap of death)
- Conflict of Heroes (and the Marsh board)*
- Hive (and Mosquito and Lady Bug)

* not played yet

i have bought many expansions without ever playing the game. mostly due to i knew i was going to like the game. i have never gone wrong yet.
game i have also bought expansion for before playing the core game are:

i bought all there was at the time, but for the player expansions

i bought this and the operation novgorod.

i got this game when it was all ready out of print, only by a year, so on ebay i got deck 2, tanks, boomers, and pirates and warlords.
if it is a game that interest you then i see no reason in not buying both at the same time.

There were a few reasons made me get the expansion as well right away: Theme, theme, and theme, and then the fact that no further expansions were planned (which always helps, I then have an excuse because "that'll be it"). The game, in this particular case, doesn't seem to be complete with only half the monsters from the video game in the box, so getting the expansion together with the base game was about the only thing that made sense to me in the first place.

When I got this game, White Moon was out of print already and quite rare; except that my FLGS still had a copy. So I most definitely couldn't resist getting the expansion as well, together with the base game.

...and a summary post for most of the rest (except for those I forget):

thumbsupthumbsup Neuroshima Hex! - great, I'm glad I got them. Had to wait for one of the expansions until after I had played the base game though, because it wasn't on stock

thumbsup Mr. Jack - to be honest, the base game alone has so much replayability that I haven't even touched the expansion yet. I did play more Mr. Jack in New York than the first one meanwhile though. Still, the game is great, no regrets whatsoever.

thumbsdown WarCraft: The Board Game - oh look, a failure. Of course, the expansion makes the game twice as good, but that's still a lot worse than the similar Nexus Ops or Viktory II. Buying this game was a waste altogether

thumbsupthumbsup Galaxy Trucker - hey, what can go wrong with Vlaada Chvátil? Nothing! Great game, great expansion.

thumbsupthumbsdown Summoner Wars - I have everything that was printed to date, ordered all together to save shipping costs. And I haven't played the game once, and it doesn't really tempt me. I guess I should play it. But there's so many other things that are more interesting to me right now...

thumbsdownthumbsdown Kung Fu Fighting - I'm not quite sure how I could possibly buy the game itself in the first place, much less together with an expansion that has entirely different cardstock and backs. I feel bad about this one.

thumbsupthumbsdown Knightmare Chess - I thought my wife would like this, but she prefers Chess proper. I won't complain. Except that I don't get to use my shiny cards.

thumbsup Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game - I got this together with the first expansion. Which should have been the last I bought, but I got more meanwhile, which I'll probably never play because the game gets too complex for beer and pretzels eventually.

I think that's it, mostly I'm sure I forgot a thing or two.

Just once. Strangely enough, found the Jungle Speed Expansion still in shrink at the thrift store. Didn't own the original game, but for $1.99 I wasn't turning it down.

I later bought the base game, played it twice, hated it, and traded away both the base game and (still in shrink) expansion.

This and Dominion: Envoy Promo Card actually arrived in my house a couple days before the base game. I wasn't even sure how I would feel about the base game at that time, but since it only cost $5 for the expansion I figured it was an easy choice. Kind of strange for me because with most games I am opposed to expansions.

That's because the on-line shop made a mistake sending me the expansion when I ordered the base game. They made me an offer to keep the expansion at a lower price and they will send me the base game. So now I got now the expansion and have to wait to receive the base game.

I traded for a copy of Samarkand that included Isfahan. I did this trade specifically to get Isfahan, since I'd read that it made the game better.

I have not liked any games by the designer of this particular game, but the theme seemed like it would be great for the kids, who love animals, zoos, and pretty much any nature center. So, I read up enough about the game play to figure it wouldn't be too painful.

The odd thing is that I bought the whole farm, so to speak. Zoo, Aqua, all the supplements.

It has sat, unplayed, since the time I put all the pieces together into a big common box.
