descent.jpgThe trend that started with the Memoir ’44 Campaign Book continues with Fantasy Flight Games‘ new expansion the Descent Quest Compendium. The book basically contains 16 new quests for Descent (no word if it will have anything for Road to Legend in it) from a variety of folks in the games industry (including fan-favorites Ken Hite, John Kovalic and Monte Cook) and an introduction by Alan Moon. Its a nice hardcover title going for about $30 and should release in July, but the whole thing begs a bigger question – is this the future of board game expansions? It certainly wouldn’t work for every type of board game, but those based on scenario play seem ripe for this type of expansion (and let’s face it, if it keeps costs down and keeps the game fresh, would we really complain?).
