It's that time of the year again, when I post threads like this, holding on to dear hope in that this game gets an expansion in 2019. I absolutely love it, but wish for more content and variety!

I know a digital expansion is in works or some such, but anything planned for physical release?

Has anyone heard anything?

There's a thread somewhere with prototype cards from the expansion that we on display at Essen. My understanding is that it's planned for this year, but that kind of thing is always up in the air.

CGE also had a demo at BGG.Con. The CGE rep said they hoped to release the cardboard and digital version simultaneously by Q1 2019. But, you know, timelines are slippery, so take that for what you will.

I asked the CGE rep at PAXU and he said the same thing.

In the last week, I've noticed two Non CGE people note that they are testing the app (presumably some form of Beta). So the testing is expanding which is a good sign.

Hello there,

I also have a secundary question : do you think they will release a "complete story of Civilization" box ? (with base game + expansion, I mean)

Regards,

E.

PS : hope they will integrate the Spanish Sagrada Familia, the idea is just so FUNNY ! laugh

Unlikely with the announced expansion, which is just a few cards, which can be easily stored in the original base game box anyway. There are a few wonders and leaders, and some randomiser cards to put into the deck, so you know in advance, which cards will come up in the game, but not when, just like in the base game. It might even be, that the expansion would be released in a zip bag rather then a cardboard box. Would not mind at all, see no need for a box.

I was told in Essen as well, that they are planning to release in 2019, also in physical form. And yes, I'm looking very much forward to that!

hi guys,

short answers are:
- expansion is planned for 2019, Q1 is maybe too soon I think
- expansion will include new leaders and wonders cards
- also, a few new military cards -- we are just testing some of them
(so, ... it's growing a bit beyond what we expected at first)
- expansion will include also some rebalanced versions of original cards
- you will be able to play with 1) original cards, 2) rebalanced cards, 3) expansion cards, or 4) mix of expansion+rebalanced
- no Sagrada Familia yet -- but there's Gaudi and he's one of my favorites
- no "complete story of Civilization" box planned for now

We playtested also during holidays and we will balance the cards -- this will take a few iterations and possibly a few months total. There are some new cards yet to be tested, but the majority of cards are in a good shape.

thanks for your support, stay tuned

That'll be quite some testing, to make those cards work in all those configurations... good luck!

Can we have more female leaders in the expansion, please? I always thought that Joan of Arc "there is only one woman throughout history who was important" was pretty sad. James Cook's ability, for instance, could just as easily have been given to Queen Elizabeth I.

Would love some official teasers. Even the Essen reveal was done by a fan, not by CGE.
