We've received a lot of inquiries for the 2 mini expansions, Pulsar and Supernova. Both have been difficult to get lately, but this will chance this spring. Pulsar and slightly edited Supernova 2 will be available worldwide from BGG store by the end of May (educated guess).

For European players, the mini expansions will also be available through Lautapelit.fi web store. However, for now, we can ship only to the EU countries, but we try to change this later this year.

As the title suggest there will also be a new mini expansion, Nebula. It'll be in the same format as the 2 previous ones, further details will be available later today when it's page is published here on BGG. Nebula will arrive at a same time as the other 2.

The details are a bit fuzzy, but we'll try to focus the Extremely Deep Space Telescope ASAP.

Yes, if I recall right, the change was minimal.

"Sufficient" is always difficult to determine, but there will be more of Nebulas than the previous mini expansions when they got to the BGG store for the first time.

So what's the difference between the two editions of Supernova? I didn't see any changes when looking at the hexes.

I imagine its just a rules tweak as so many found them imbalanced, so luckily those of us with first edition shouldn't need to buy a new one.

Edit: Welp, I was slightly wrong ...The tile is a wee bit different. Easy enough to houserule.

What are the new rules? Are they published?

With a quick glance, only difference seems to be that the pink planets are now regular ones.

I'm new to the game how how would that effect things? What was wrong with the first supernova?

The first supernova had three advanced planets (money, materials, science) and two regular planets, which were gray. You can only colonise advanced planets if you have the appropriate techs.

The new supernova has advanced money and materials. but regular science and two gray. So now you can colonise the science planet without needing the Advanced Labs tech.
This is important because supernova can explode if you haven't made enough scientific progress.

Main reason for that particular change is almost certainly so the Hydrans no longer have a unique advantage from Supernova tiles. They start the game with Advanced Labs already researched.
