Everdell: Bellfaire and Everdell: Spirecrest were recently announced and will be launching on Tuesday (Sept. 17th). Bellfaire ups the player count to 6 and adds player powers, whereas Spirecrest seems to add variety and some special critters.

They might finally get me to back, especially if the collector's edition is up for another reprint.

I guess it's been mentioned by now but I just wanted to do a little cheerleading for Donning the Purple: Votes & Virtue expansion. The base game is available too, and it was one of the best games I played in 2018. It's still in regular rotation and I highly recommend it.

I hope it does gangbusters for them this time around.
I really enjoy the game as well, and backed. But do you have a clear notion of what the expansion adds for solo play? We won't use the General role or the heir board. So I think it will be the new Senate phase (which I haven't seen in action) and extra plot and event cards. As it is 42 euro including shipping, I am having some doubts if it's worth it for me. If I just want to support the designer (which I do) I could also throw 10 euro in the PnP level.

So, have you seen some gameplay or review of the solo play of the expansion?
Okay, I am stupid. The rule book and all new cards for the expansion are available as download from the KS page. So it is not hard to find out what it will add for solo players. In my case, not enough to pay 40 euro. I switched to the PnP level. I am happy with the base game that I've got and can try the senate phase with my self made crappy components then.

Sorry, I completely missed your earlier question. I haven't seen anything that particularly struck as essential - other than more cards for the decks, something I do think the base game would benefit from, given my frequency of playing it. It's not a game that needs to be made more complex, but I'm interested to see how it'll handle a solo senate phase.

Glad to see it doing so well, the base game is a gem.

nobody has spoken on this thread for two days! I thought it got deleted or something surprise

Edit: I am very tempted for Donning the Purple, but after seeing the solo game not so much. It seems as a multi I'd really enjoy it though.
Yep good period for my wallet. First time I have not pledged for a continuous period of 3 months for 2 years or so.

I remember the first expansion being highly expensive for the amount of components, I wonder if that will be the case again. Not that I intend to back, but I'm curious.

Yeah, wondering if it's worth for pure solo considering the price.

So, I've been debating whether to bring this up, but throwing caution to the wind: has anyone here been tracking the alleged union-busting allegations coming out of Kickstarter over the last few days? (There's a good rundown here.)

I don't want to drag us too far down the rabbit hole, but frankly these allegations are making me reconsider whether I want to continue backing on the platform. I'm not the world's biggest backer, but a number of the projects I have backed I have learned about through this thread, so I wanted to share this in case it would affect anyone else's thinking.

Again, apologies if this is inappropriate - if people would prefer that I delete this post, please just let me know.

I think you did well to post this here, so people can read about the issue and decide for themselves.

It would be better if further discussion about this was moved to a new thread, however, as it is a sensitive topic and can easily cause dispute.

In general Everdell felt expensive all around. I haven't even managed to play Pearlbrook yet - I had to put it back in the box unplayed after setting it up due to needing to use my table to catch up on work.
