 Here's hoping Andrea and Luca (designers) can give us their thoughts on these forums from time to time....

To collect what information we have on the expansion, post what you can here (sneak info, details, release dates, price, etc).

Here's the BGG page with the AI with the 2 extra buildings.

I can't find the post where they described the Heroes and Events, etc.

We just got the game but it met expectations.  Already anxious for an expansion!

Thanks for posting that link.  Kingsburg is a great game to play, and I'm really looking forward to the expansion.  This is an almost perfect game for those new boardgamers tired of playing Settlers of Catan and ready to try out something a bit more complex.

As far as I know there has bene no new info leaked/released beyond the new buildings.

The game hasn't been out long enough to see an expansion so quickly (although I would love to see it) but this game always sees play around my table. The info that we do have on the expansion sounds awesome and will definately be on my "Must buy!" list.

I did get my copy on the fair in Essen 2007. So it is out long enough for an expasion, which is a definitive must buy for me.

Thanks for expressing exactly what we (designers) wanted to deliver, and for enjoying the game of course.

The expansion will basically give you 5 tools (extra buliding lines, alternate buildings, alternate winter battle resolution, the Governors and the Year Events).

You can add one or more (or even all) of those to the "basic" game to shape your favourite game towards a more "gamers" approach (Governors, alternate buildings and winter), or just to add more variety for casual gamers (the Year Events, but also the Governors and the alternate buildings can be seen in this way). The two extra building lines are probably a welcomed addition to any approach to the game.

Myself and Luca hope you will enjoy it when it will be released!

Wow It sounds great.

I will have to get up and buy the original. I played it at an expo and it was the best game I had played all year.

It felt really refreshingly original which drew me in anyway, and the use of all of the picture information was also a winner.

MUST BUY :)

I like the two new rows and hope that the Java program will continue to be the place to see previews of the upcoming release. Kingsburg is just such a fun little game.

Hi everyone,

                   I'm new to the forums.  Just wanted to say that I played Kingsburg for the first time today.  It was a 2 player game with my 23 year old daughter and I really enjoyed it.  I also would be interested in an expansion a little ways down  the road, after some more play time with the original.

Spring 2009, hopefully.

Rules are under translation in English (and other languages as well), since our English is not good enough to write an errorproof rulebook.

And we're demoing the expansion here in Italy at conventions, with really positive feedbacks.

Stay tuned!

I'll be eagerly awaiting this expansion. Kingsburg is a great game that's seen a lot of ply with my group and I'm excited at the idea of adding some new dimensions to it!

Looking foard to this expansion. Remember that this game has been around longer than FFG has been publishing it (I have an original copy), so definitely time for an expansion.


Ignorance if futile. Resistance is bliss.

The game needs more stuff, especially if you're a gamer.

So, I hope, just as you guys, that the expansion will be printed soon. All the graphic material as far as I know is final, so they should be printing by now.
I am not sure how long will it takes, but I have hopes for an April or May release.

Can't wait. Kingsburg is a great gateway game to begin with, and I'd love to see it furthered by an equally great expansion.
