I need some help with where to go with Aeons End expansions please, there’s a few things that are confusing to me. This is a little long sorry, I’ve tried looking on here and at BGG forums for these answers but I’m either looking in the wrong places/wording things wrong, or no one else has had a misunderstanding about them. So I have the basic core game (second edition) and 2 of the expansions (The Nameless and The Depths), but I’m a little confused of where to go, going forward. I have a few questions.
- War Eternal/New Age. Are these a whole new core game? Is it an expansion like the ones I have? Or something else entirely? Is there any point in buying them if I already own the basic core game, would I be doubling up on some mages and nemeses etc? I’ve seen them spoken highly of in other threads but don’t really understand what they are.
- I was looking at pictures of the expansion The Void, and the back of the box looks like it includes the breach mage Xaxos. But I already have Xasos from my core game, only the character art looks different. Have I made a mistake somewhere down the line, or am I looking at a dodgy copy? Or are there 2 Xaxos’? Or option 4 that I have considered?
- The art for the nemesis on the back of the Void box I’m looking at is different to the nemeses that I currently own. Is this anything to do with different editions? If I bought an expansion from a different edition, would the art on the back of the cards also be different? If so, that would ruin the game, taking away the surprise of what nemesis card is coming next for example. I’m not very clued up expansions and differences in editions, and I can’t really afford to spend money on a mistake right now! Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you! If there’s a problem I haven’t thought of yet and you think I should know, please feel free to share that also. (Not sure if I messed my formatting up on mobile sorry) EDIT: Questions asked and answered. Thank you :-)
