The congnoscenti will already be aware, but it also is important that the unwashed masses are brainwashed NOW. SJG will be publishing a new expansion for Illuminati later in 2006. You can check the entry for it here on BGG at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/22049 or directly on the SJG website at http://www.sjgames.com/illuminati/bfd/

You did not get this information from me. Fnord.

Actually with 110 cards this sounds almost like an updated edition of the game. If you combine the original, Y2K and now this edition you are talking about a 330 card deck! We're going to need a bigger game box to carry them all in.

And now it's changed to October 2006. Let's hope that one sticks

I am still trying to track down a copy of the Y2K expansion. I also REALLY want the plastic versions of the megabucks. They went to those cheap paper ones when they re-did the core set.

It did slip again - to February 2007. As it is nearly Feb now I went to have a quick look at the SJG site and saw that it has slipped again to March 2007. (I am putting the year in for historical tracking purposes because I am a pessimist.)

It is claimed to be "In Production".

Why, oh why, does it take so long? soblue

A couple of (actually, just 2) other interesting details if you didn't bother to access the link -

1. I:Y2K is (finally!) getting a reprint in November. Of course, it could end up like BFD and end up getting pushed 'til God knows when like BFD by all the Munchkins.

2. BFD's Hitler's Brain artifact card recycled art from INWO's which was previously also used in one of I:Y2K's "Secrets Man Was Not Meant To Know".

Hence, SJGames is running a contest for new art for that card. Prize is 200 bucks and 2 copies of the new reprint of I:Y2K. Deadline is July 30th 2007.

Click riks's link for the submission email and full info.
