Leonard mentioned in his comment here (http://boardgamegeek.com/article/13300592#13300592) that a certain detail that is superfluous in the game as it exists today is there "so that it may be used for future expansion too." I'm curious as to what the planned future expansion is. The later part of the Chinese Civil War (1945-1949) seems obvious, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for something more than that (e.g., map extensions for Xinjiang and Manchuria that allow depictions of conflicts like the Ili Rebellion and Japanese conquest of Manchuria). Can either Leonard or Adam offer any insight on this?

Personally, I would like to see a Wu Xia expansion. Yip Man vs. Cruel Japanese Karate Master in single combat for control of Foshan!

Why not but we are first waiting for updated rules/playbook as he mentioned he is working on them.

I don't think Manchuria conquest would be interesting: does the Chinese have any chance to resist ?

Based on my own research for another project, I think the conquest of Manchuria was actually more challenging for the Japanese than is popularly perceived in the West, but in any event I was really picturing that such an expansion would ideally cover the whole 1931-1937 time period (thus the fighting in Jehol, Chahar, Suiyuan, and hypothetical further Japanese conquests into Inner Mongolia), which would add some more depth. But it's easy for me to volunteer more work for Leonard to do! laugh

The Communist conquest of Manchuria during the Chinese Civil War would be more interesting.
