Swordcrafters shines because of its simplicity to learn and play. The game is surprisingly strategic as designed, and the puzzle nature of the 3D adds a surprising amount of planning and decision space to the game. That said, we know the board game market often wants more depth and has different preferences. The expanded edition offers that depth day one for you to take your swordcrafting and meaningful gameplay decisions to another level. It’s also a cheaper price than I can offer with two games or two campaigns because we lump all the shipping cost into one exchange. The expanded edition is 4+ lbs so there is a ton of game inside.
