• Artist/designer Michael Menzel wrapped his Legends of Andor series in 2017 with Legends of Andor: The Last Hope, with other designers then building on his creation with additional heroes or legends, such as 2021's Die Legenden von Andor: Magische Helden, and spinoff titles, such as 2019's The Liberation of Rietburg and 2020's Andor: The Family Fantasy Game.

In late 2022, however, Menzel will return to Andor with Die Legenden von Andor: Die Ewige Kälte, which German publisher KOSMOS describes as a standalone game consisting of four legends in which "a team of 2-4 heroes embarks on an exciting journey to a strange land beyond the mountains. On a new, double-sided game board, you'll find loyal allies and face unexpected dangers. Together you will find out who is behind the magical threat of the eternal cold!"

• In September 2022, KOSMOS also plans to release Die Legenden von Andor: Big Box, which will contain the Legends of Andor base game, the New Heroes expansion, and other items.

Board Game: The King's Dilemma
• Italian publisher Horrible Guild plans to run a Kickstarter campaign in 2022 for The Queen's Dilemma, with this design from Hjalmar Hach and Lorenzo Silva being a standalone sequel to the Kennerspiel des Jahres-nominated The King's Dilemma from 2019.

Here's an overview of the design from the publisher:
The Queen's Dilemma is an interactive narrative legacy game that uses the same Dilemma Card System as in The King's Dilemma to bring players into another adventure set in the Kingdom of Ankist.

Much of the gameplay will be focused on a big map of the kingdom. Players will take control of different regions and manage them. There will be several resources to gather, with different uses, and players will be able to exchange them to construct buildings and other personal improvements.

The tense voting sessions and tough decisions that made The King's Dilemma such a huge success will still be there, right at the center of the experience, but their outcomes will involve more than resource tracks going up and down this time. Event cards will have more varied effects, too, having an impact on specific regions.
