With just a pack of cards, hopefully this will be an eminently affordable expansion

Kickstarter

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2012515236/snowdonia-2nd...


Indie Boards and Cards
- Jungfrau/Mt Washington Expansion
- Sets of plastic workers (custom extra for the game)
- Britannia Bridge scenario (was part of the Kickstarter campaign)
- Some KS promos

Pricing:
Jungfrau/Mt. Washington Expansion - 13€
Snowdonia Miniatures - 13€

Surprised Stare Games will have some copies of an 'in time for this Essen' promo scenario (not a full expansion) called Snowdonia: The Daffodil Line - we will be posting up about pre-orders for this very soon (Essen pickup or posting).

Lookout Games may have copies of Snowdonia: Bayerische Zugspitzbahn, another promo scenario

Probably not, now that I've bought Tammany Hall, but worth playing...

Available for pre-order at £25 from:

Doesn't look as interesting as Tammany Hall
