Is it possible to even purchase this upgrade pack at a decent price? Everywhere I look it seems to be over $70 which seems insane..

I need this to upgrade my black industries version..

Thx

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

$70 is a truly strange price when you can get FFG base game for $50 and less.

My understanding is that the upgrade kit has been out of print for a while now. People selling it at the prices you mention probably know this and are selling it as a collectable/rare item.

At that price, it would be better to just buy the 4th revised edition released by FFG.

I have the BI version, but still picked up the FFG version. Later, I wanted to upgrade my BI version, but I couldn't find the upgrade pack, so I just shelved my BI version. A few months back (August 2012) I found an upgrade pack sitting on a shelf in a game store when I went to the US for a few months.

Hmm... ok ya it does make sense that it's being sold as rare/collectable but man the price seems very overblown already. Might have to just grab the FF version.. Thanks for the input everyone!

Long story short; I found my copy of the original 4th edition and started playing it. I then started to do some research and found out there's an upgrade pack.....yeah, at $70+ I decided to just get the Revised 4th edition.
