last November, Harry wrote that "the planned release for the 3 new expansions is at Essen 2013".

I haven't seen anything else about it since then.

Big disappointment! The complete lack of any updated information from ADG is baffling.

Yes, this and the disappearance of the computer game are both very disappointing. soblue

From another thread:

>
It is slated for release late next year or early 2014. We have to bring out Khaki in Flames first, then WiF the collector's edition, Matrix/Slitherine's version of WiF the computer game, then the 3 7 Ages expansions. After that little lot, the next release is WiF Blitz.

regards

WiF computer game has been released and I think Khaki in Flames as well - not sure about the WiF collector's edition - so looks like 7 Ages is not to far away

We played a game this weekend, still as good as ever, 5 players, I came last blush and we got to talking about what a missed opportunity the lack of expansions was and wondering how far development actually got. Later on I did a quick bit of googling and found this from 2008 Includes a reference back to BGG.

Quote:
We are looking at 3 themed expansions now; classical, modern, and religious; with the religious including a few new religions (animism, Judaism, Sikhism and atheism all strong contenders).

There will also be enough units for an extra 9 civilisations (3 per countersheet, with one countersheet in each expansion) for a grand total of 24 empires which gives you an equal number with 2,3,4,6 & 8 players. There will be an extra set of player markers in each expansion so up to 10 players can now play (or up to 5 with double markers each). You want competition? You can't handle competition!

The current plan is that each kit will come with 12 cards (which are added to the current deck, except in cases like Japan where yo would remove the current card), one countersheet and a small rules update book that will cover all 3 expansions. But of course with all these suggestions we may end up upping the number of new cards in each kit.

We are planning to release the kits in the middle of next year (after the release of the Matrix edition of World in Flames: the computer game) and are currently working with our programming team to incorporate these new features in our computer 7 Ages game which is also planned to be released in 2009.
Ah well what might have been.
