Will the expansion be on general release after Spiel? Apparently Lookout's web page suggests it may only be available there and on the web page while stocks last.

Say it aint so mister, say it aint so...

Why don't you just order it from the webstore after the Spiel?

Only risk is if they sell out.

Well, if there are any left I could do that. But, let's say I forget...

All pointers at present are that it's a limited release only. Depends whether it's picked up by other publishers, I guess...

This is true. However I was mulling over putting it on my Xmas Wish List for someone else to buy me. I wouldn't want to send them on a wild goose chase!

Could someone point me to the spiel website for buying this expansion? When is the spiel?

I'd like to get my hands on this too. I like the base game, but it's not perfect... There is so much potential in the buildings for production chains but they never actually come to much. Plus there is a lot of luck. Hopefully this expansion helps!

As I understand it, the expansion adds some complexity to the game, but doesn't change the level of randomness. To address that, the designer changed the rules a bit (see v2.0 rules at Mayfair site), and additionally there are several variants in the OMG variants forum here.

As for whether this will be printed and sold beyond this apparently small production run, somewhere in the OMG forums, someone (I think Hanno?) mentioned that it would "eventually" be published and sold through normal retail channels. No mention on when that would be though.

Spiel is on right now. Check Lookout-Spiel's website after tomorrow to see if the game is listed yet.

The expansion will probably be sold out tomorrow at the Spiel convention. However, there will be some copies available in the webshop anyway.
It's based on the 2nd edition rules.

It has Mayfair on the cover image as well as Lookout. Have Mayfair not said if they're interested in the expansion yet?

If I remember correctly, Mayfair did not publish Oh My Goods at the same time as Lookout, but some months later. I think (my personal opinion) they will look at the feedback of the expansion and then decide later.

Just so's we have all of the information together:

Mayfair published the OMGoods version (the original "Royal Goods" version only exists as a run of 1000 for Essen '15). The new expansion was also done as Mayfair/Lookout; the Essen limited version of this is because we are determining how we want to package and publish this for the long term, but wanted to release a few into the wild now. The expansion is going to be unavailable for a period of time while this is being determined, and then Mayfair/Lookout will be rereleasing it.

I managed to stumble my way through the mostly german lookout shop and purchase a copy of OMG expansion. I am not entirely sure that it's actually even in stock or not, but they took my money, so I am hopeful that it will actually arrive sometime.
