Hi there!

This game is destined for my game group since we like programming (Robo Rally) and coop games (Pandemic, Eldritch Horror). The only problem is that we are almost always 5 or more people around the table!

Does anybody know if there are already plans or announcements about an expansion that allows playing with more than 4 players?

I have a similar problem in my group. While it would be nice, we usually just have ppl team up if they have to. Works well for coops.

It is a 1 shot project. I doubt there gonna be expansion.

Just make 2 people from your group by a copy and either play 2 games at sametime or combine both games in a massive map.

There are no plans for any expansion at this time. I'd rather us under-promise and over-deliver here. Until I can firmly commit to anything, it's safest to assume this is the only tabletop game Riot intends to make. Please let that influence your purchase as our primary goal is that the people who buy MvM don't regret their purchase.

Why not just make a custom scenario using the thing in the box as the 5th player?

So if this is the only tabletop Riot intends to make I recommend to develop it further!
I bet there are many board gamers out there who arrange game events with more than four players on a regular basis.

Usually I don't buy board games, that don't support 5 or more players, but knowing there's going to be a 5+ player expansion for MvM would make it a must-buy. cool

If you would't buy a game that only supports 4 players I would suggest you heed Kades Warning when he said

I take that to include expansions.

That being said I would hope that if they do an expansion and they are out of stock of the original 30,000 copies of the game they would also consider reprinting the game aswell.

Well, we've already begun looking into how quickly we can get out future waves.
