Just a heads-up:

Ryan has launched an expansion for Eight-Minute Empire: Legends on Kickstarter, and the Europe board expansion is available as pledge-level!

Seems odd that there is no level to get the base game of legends plus the expansions.

Same here - I'll not pledge for an expansion without having / getting the base game.

And later on, I will not buy the game without a chance for the kickstarter stuff.

Hopefully they'll adapt their campaign as I have the original 8ME and would back this immediately if it offered the complete thing.

Wait, is this an expansion for 8ME or for 8ME:L ?

I have to say that I was disappointed with the whole 8ME / 8ME:L situation, and now you're just rubbing it in.

Lost Lands is an expansion for EME:L. The Kickstarter is however also making the previous expansion boards for both EME & EME:L available again.

Having not picked up Legends yet I would have certainly pulled the trigger with this.

To be absolutely clear, the Europe board offered in this Kickstarter is an expansion for the original Eight-Minute Empire.

I KickStarted the original 8ME, and it eventually turned out, although not quite in so many words, that the purpose behind 8ME was to raise enough money to publish the real game, 8ME:L . There was no upgrade path or expansion kit for the 8ME owners. 8ME was a standalone game that, I now see, has been abandoned in favor of 8ME:L which is getting expansions and updates.

I still love 8ME and play it often when I need a quick filler. I'm just disappointed by how quickly it was completely abandoned in favor of its sequel.

I am happy the Europe map has been made.
Fingers crossed I can get a copy.
I really like 8ME and just want more maps.
