Hi all! I know it may be a bit early to be having this discussion but I was just wondering what happens to this game post Dominion? I remember reading somewhere that Dominion was to be the last expansion published by FFG and was wondering if there was any truth to that?

If not, is there a chance that the game could get more expansions or even a big box version that included everything printed thus far? This is all speculation and curiosity but I am sure hoping to see more Cosmic expansions in the future!

FFG doesn't typically do Big Boxes. They do often release a second edition of a game which incorporates expansions, e.g. Rune Wars and A Game of Thrones: The Board Game (Second Edition), but in those cases neither game had expansion content on the same scale that CE has.

They also recently put out Blue Moon Legends, which AFAIK collects all of the expansions from the long-out-of-print Blue Moon, but that's a much smaller game than CE.

It doesn't seem likely to me that they'd put out a single box with 170+ aliens, 300ish cards (just a guess off the top of my head), a dozen or so punchboards, and 160 plastic ships. Especially since they seem to have been putting some effort into keeping all of the expansions available.

If you're hoping for further expansions past Cosmic Dominion, then the best way to send that message is by helping CD get sold as well as possible. Talk it up, give the base set + CD as a big gift, or CD itself to someone who already has Cosmic, get people into the hobby in general, etc. I'm positive the design team have ideas, but sales numbers help those ideas become reality.

Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

I can't imagine that "Dominion" would be the last expansion. There's still a lot of aliens out there in the cosmos.

Just saying.

One of the things I'd like to see are blank alien cards, printed with the usual design on the reverse. These would be for unobtrusively placing our own "homebrew" aliens into the mix.
