The Fantastic Four returns to Marvel Legendary!

Expansion Fatigue – Is it Possible?

As boardgamers, we love our expansions, at least most of us do. If we have a favourite game and a new expansion is announced for it, we start drooling like a dog who just noticed that you work at a dog food plant and just might have a treat for him.

Games like Smash Up are always coming out with new faction decks. It seems like each year, an expansion comes out with at least four decks in it and assorted counters that work with those decks. I’m not a follower of the game (I have the base game, but haven’t bought any expansions yet), but I know they came out with the Big Geeky Box (along with yet another faction deck) to store all of your Smash Up cards.

For those fans of the game, I’m wondering if your space is running out in that box?
