So I was browsing today and came across a game, roughly standard FFG box size, that purported to be this expansion?

It was priced at $90.

It looked like a FFG type insert, wrapped in brown cardboard, and a label in a similar style to the original envelope packaging. While a bit cheap looking, it did seen to be a factory made package.

There was no indication of contents... What did I just find?

I don't think so. That looks like the original "envelope with a mini stuck to it" version (which I have)

I'm wondering if it's the same thing, but the original packaging was damaged/lost and they replaced it with the brown cardboard. At any rate, it's pretty much certain it's not something "new" or different than the original. Probably just someone capitalizing on the OOP product.

I was in the neighbourhood and figure I'd snap a shot of it.

Weird.

Looks like a French copy of For Troll and Country.

That's a display box full of copies of BattleLore: For Troll and Country.

Thanks for clearing this up. I was just at my FLGS and found the same thing. So I came looking on BGG to find out what it was and found this thread. I even took a picture of the two next to eachother so I could give some context to what I had found. My FLGS had the bigger box priced at $72.95.



Apparently the people managing the inventory at stores like these aren't paying much attention to what they're doing.
