  1. This is something I had posted on a forum labeled "Dear Santa (FFG)" but I think it fits better here. So I was trying to think of a way FFG could create an expansion that would satisfy several fans of ToI by significantly expanding the game but at minimal cost and time on the part of FFG so they can also focus on other games they are working on. A Urban Map Expansion pack could do this because it would require no new plastic. The pack could feature 9 double sided urban boards along with terrain overlays that would allow players to customize the maps to look like specific urban battles (An Eiffel Tower, Brandenburg Gate, and Reichstag token for example). This would allow FFG to simultaneously expand both Eastern and Western Front game play. New scenarios could include the liberation of French and Italian cities, Stalingrad, and the capture of Berlin. A historical fiction scenario could allow all three allied nations to hit Berlin Simultaneously in a massive battle.

  3. Dapper Dan said: some terrain boards with water (for the Lake Satschan event of Austerlitz). PS: For those wondering what I meant by Lake Satschan, here is a quote from Baron de Marbot who was at Austerlitz, "chiefly Russians, sought to pass over the ice. It was very thick, and five or six thousand men, keeping some kind of order, had reached the middle of the Satschan lake, when Napoleon, calling up the artillery of his guard, gave the order to fire on the ice. It broke at countless points, and a mighty cracking was heard. 'The water, oozing through the fissures, soon covered the floes, and we saw thousands of Russians, with their horses, guns, and wagons, slowly settle down into the depths. It was a horribly majestic spectacle which I shall never forget. In an instant the surface of the lake was covered with everything that could swim. Men and horses struggled in the water amongst the floes. Somea very small numbersucceeded in saving themselves by the help of poles and ropes, which our soldiers reached to them from the shore, but the greater part were drowned."
  4. I wouldnt mind seeing a box set of the lieutenants in plastic form, or some molds of the avatars. Ive made due in some respect by buying D&D minis indidvidually and painting them up to fit my purposes
  5. I purchased Sea of Blood but havent played it yet. Bit leery now. It's late when Im reading this forum and it took me a second to realize that you were using the acronymn SOB for Sea of Blood and not something else with the same letters. That what I get for reading while sleep deprived.
  6. I wish I'd thought of that. We played a game a while back and it lasted over 10hours, excluding breaks. Is that normal or was that just exceptionally long? We played they Quest featuring the soul sucking sword.
  7. I am thrilled about playing this game. Like many of you, I would like to see an expansion featuring the Austrians and Russians sooner rather than later. I am fine with the next expansion being one which allows you to get extra pieces and for grander battles without having to buy the whole set again but afterwards I'd like Austerlitz. What I have my fingers crossed for is an expansion which comes like the bas game: 100 Austrians / 100 Russians, respective cards and componenets, some terrain boards with water (for the Lake Satschan event of Austerlitz). Then do the expansion that creates elite units which includes elites for all four of these nations, five if they do Prussians first. Adding these other nations first will make for better multi-player games too.
