Hi everybody!

I would like to try this game first, and if I like, keep money and buy it. The problem is that I dont know how long it would take. I have waited for some games until having the chance to try them but I had the surprise that they were sold out or discontinued.

Is there any plan for continuing or descontinuing this game in a short term?

Thanks.

The designer (Dominic) monitors these forums, so I expect him to jump in soon, but as a just a laydude, I'll throw in my two cents: this game system (Evolution\Flight Expansion\Beginner version whose name I do not recsll\Evolution Climate\etc) has been going strong for a number of years, the video game for pc/tablet/smartphone was just released a week or two ago, and in fact the Evolution Oceans boardgame kickstarter is on the immediate horizon.

So, yeah. You can count on this game being around.

North Star Games seems very committed to this product line. They have invested literally years of development and playtesting into each title in the series. So after all that investment, yes, I expect them to be around for quite a while. I cannot state the same about many of the promos, though, with confidence.

Evution Beginning:
-Non-compatible

Oceans:
1) Non-compatible
2) KS in March. Releazen late 2019/early 2020

For Climate:
-Flight as another twist and turn
-Evolution: Promo Pack III adds some awesome changes if needed.

Climate has a lot to digest and will stay the course. You can wait it out, but as far az the immediate future, that is not known. They still gotta get Oceans produced and that is at leazt a years worth of support.
There is an Evolution app game that will get you a feel for the baze set if you are concerned with mechanics. Climate just turns it up.

Did you try the base game Evolution?

Its digital version has launched recently, and is free to download on Android (don't know about iOS). If I'm not mistaken the free version allows you to play with AI, so you can have a taste of the mechanics. Playing with human can give a quite different feel though.

This expansion Climate adds some mechanics and strategies to the game, but doesn't diminish the feel of the base game, so if you like the base game enough, adding Climate would be very recommended.

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!
