Hey all,

My wife and I just got this game and are really enjoying it. We also have the Jewelry expansion which I think is a really good addition.

It made me start thinking of things that wouldn't be too hard to implement that would work very thematically:

Masks (kind of like Jewelry):

Catering:
I know catering was already mentioned as being part of the 'fountain' or whatnot, but I think it would be a great idea to have a kitchen staff that prepared cakes and wine, etc. They could even be tokens that fit into the 'dress' spaces, but counted as extra decorations.

Thoughts?

edit:

Also, any new apprentice, journeymen and masters for turns 1,3,4,6 to add more variety would be cool.

Hi Nathan,

I am glad that you like Rococo so much and can understand that you wish for another expansion. However, we do not think that there will be another expansion for Rococo in the foreseeable future.

The reasons are manifold. A second expansion for a game even as successful as Rococo is hard to sell in significant volume. And since the first expansion already expanded the number of possible combinations by some orders of magnitude, playtesting another expansion would be close to impossible. It took us more than 100 plays (and thus about 300 hours) to bring the Jewelry Box to its current state. If we would introduce more elements (especially more employees to the other groups), the number of playtests necessary to try only the most important combinations would be even higher. This is an effort we're currently not about to undertake. Especially since, even after those 100 plays, I still think that I did not yet even come close to actually having tried everything possible way.

All this said, I would not decline if there was a request from the publisher to create a mini-expansion with just, say, 8 or 12 new employees. But such a mini-expansion would most probably not be profitable for any publisher...

Best regards
Stefan Malz

Is the expansion available in US? We love Rococo and I didn't even know the expansion was already out!
