So, a regular at my FLGS's Boardgame Night, who has volunteered at Comic-Con for several years, told he heard that, at this year's Comic-con, FFG will announce A) an expansion for the Android Board Game, and B) an official Multi-player expansion for ANR.
Has anyone else heard of this?

If that guy suddenly goes missing, you'll know.

Android Expansion! ZOMG

As for ANR multiplayer, multiplayer as in 4 people playing the same game, or multiplayer as in playing the game online with many people?

Then again, anyone can come up with "revelations" like that - and it's hard to figure out why would someone attending Comicon had access to internal FFG documents.

The problem with this is that 4-player netrunner is exactly what I'm hoping for (and probably many other ANR players as well), especially given the precedent of SW. At the same time this is a random, unverifiable claim, which can easily feed on such feelings. I'm a bit reluctant to get my hopes up.

I imagine if he meant GenCon, he'd've said GenCon. Sounds more like an Origins kind of announcement to me.

All I will say is that people have come to me with A:NR "rumors" of upcoming cards and whatnot that have turned out to be 100% false. I will not believe any different until I have a specific reason.

Also, multiplayer Netrunner would be clunky and have tons f rules issues, so I am actually less likely to believe this one than some of the other rumors I've seen.

FFG typically doesn't have much of a presence at Origins, if at all.

I imagine that if FFG were going to have a >2 player expansion this soon, they'd have built in multiplayer friendly terminology from the beginning.

Of course, if it's something like the Big Sellout, there probably wouldn't be too many rules issues since it'd still fundamentally be One Runner vs One Corp.

I think he really meant Comic-con, since that's where he volunteers. But it does sound more Gen-Con-ish to me...

That guy who said the next big box expansion would be "H&P" turned out to be right. So, slightly less than 100%. Not enough to get to 99%, but still, less.

I've seen some speculation that deluxe #4 will be one Corp + multiplayer rules. Completely baseless (no claims of insider info) but it's a nice thought.

Maybe this fits in that hole we have been trying to fill in the big box cycle. Maybe it's a single faction + cards to support a multiplayer experience. Still doesn't sound that likely.

WHI & SW had cards that were very clearly worded around multi-player games. I can't say I really noticed that wording on ANR cards.

The OP's guy heard wrong...because my guy hears that it's not a multiplayer expansion, it's a solo variant expansion. whistle

Yeah, I just can't imagine the current ANR text working in a multiplayer setting; they'd need to basically do an errata clarification for every card in the game for the updated rules.

Not that I wouldn't be excited to see MP announced. But, if it is I'll be extremely curious how that would be implemented.

You know, it'd be nice.

But these sound too much like things people would actually want for them to be true.

Yeah, with FFG's recent release history, I think Android: Second Edition seems more likely than an expansion. And that would be awesome.

I would be deliriously happy if it happened, but on my list of credible sources of information, "Comic-Con volunteer" ranks just above "person standing on a median strip yelling things."

Plus FFG has not, to my knowledge, ever made any announcements at Comic-Con and I'm not even sure they've had a booth there in the last few years.

I would love an Android board game remake. An expansion would be terrible, the game is complicated enough as it is

I recently saw the text for consoles:

Limit of 1 console per player.

That caught my attention.

Someone did spoil double time on Reddit before it was released, so there's definitely precedent for inside information.
