Basically removing the plastic figures and some fluff and in Q4 will start selling the game on the website as "classic edition." They're also re-releasing some of the expansions with it.

Well there goes the value of the "Collector's Edition" I went all-in on eBay for three days ago for rookie + full gameplay. So much for “Your last chance... to be cursed.” Some disingenuous advertising to capitalize on FOMO and painful for those who got it partially because it’s a collectors item that’ll hold its value and can eventually be sold after experienced.

Though it is nice everyone will get to experience this game now.

A pity, there will still only be a French and an English version available. I am sure, a German publisher would be willing to help out.

Rereleased in a significantly reduced form.

-No minis
-No Dark Chest curse
-No Lovecraft or Frankenstein, the game's strongest and (arguably) most interesting characters.
-Missing over a hundred cards in the black box, including a lot of fan favorites like the goat.
-Roughly 12% of black box content is missing overall.
-Most expansions not reprinted
-Only 2 trays means it will be a pretty tight fit even with just the 2 expansions that are being reprinted. If you managed to track down the others you'd have nowhere to put them.
-Iffy compatibility with Flying Roots and Fear the Devourers because classic only has standees and those only have minis.
-Incompatible with WGUMCD, because the goat becomes important


I'm kinda surprised they think something like this is worth releasing, if I had missed out I would definitely still be looking for an ebay copy, I would not consider this an acceptable replacement after seeing all the kickstarter stuff.

I haven’t played through all the content yet, but I don’t think the goat is necessary for anything important

On the Armageddon's clue card, it says something about, I believe, assasinating the goat and then taking a card (probably the next clue or something). Apart from that, you've got the mini and the 999 card, which are useless without the goat, and sometimes a goat banner (like with goat's fate according to KS).

So overall indeed nothing really important, except for
Armageddon (and maybe some more secrets)

Armaggedon's
the thing I was calling important. There's a whole curse you can't even start (as far as I know) without the goat.

There's a bunch of smaller interactions with the goat too, but I don't think breaking them will break anything important.

But, an expansion with a curse that you can't play because you're missing a card from the base game is incompatible in my book.

But you can’t get the expansions anyway

Now just waiting for the price and any statement if they are open for selling license to have publishers bring more languages to life.

This is true, more or less.

Still, as a completionist, having some expansions that are tough to find is much different from being unexpandable. That would be a dealbreaker for me, on this edition. I'm sure there's plenty out there who won't be bothered by this.

To be clear: I have my KS copy and I'm not complaining. I just think it's an odd choice.
