Was my reaction when I saw this at the tippy top of the hotness. But low and behold when I read the threads alas it seems the exact opposite seems to be the closest to the truth. One of my favorite games, a boardgame ripe with possible expansions, will not be seeing a single one. RIP forbidden stars.

See, even the creator feels our pain on this one.

Sam - you've made one of the best strategic boardgames I've ever played. So, thanks for being you and doing what you do man.

As for expansions we're pretty screwed, but I'd love to see this type of game remade with a different skin on it. I can think of about 7 other people who would get on board with it to.

Say, if it were funded publicly.

Through a website.

Like a website where you could publicly jumpstart projects through pledging cash to it.

Just thinking out loud.

This idea for cough Kickstarter cough has already been brought up before. Sam is being gracious to his former employer by not pursuing this idea. With that being said, Sam you would have my money. Just saying. whistle

if there was a reskinned kickstarter that featured an expansion-that'd do well. Game never got enough press the first time around.

I would never make a reskin unless officially sponsored. Though I have had many thoughts about a game that is similar, but still different. In the meantime I have been working on this:

If only there was another thread taking about this topic here on BGG, or on Reddit, or on Bell of lost souls, or on Dakka, or on the various guild forums.

Truly if only this topic was discussed more.

Deep sounds quite interesting, but "a game that is similar, but still different" would really be awesome for me! I really love the feeling of "technological progression" this game and starcraft: The BG convey, which is why these are two of my all time favourite games.
Now if only these were a bit faster to play

No chance GW decide to take back the Forbidden Stars development from FFG, reprint it and create some expansions ?

Don't think so... GW are focusing now on their specialist games like Blood Bowl/Horus Heresy box sets.

Plus with RuneWars minis coming out from FFG, I guess the relationship between them ain't gonna improve anytime soon. GW is known to be sour towards other companies that sells miniatures better than them.
