This game made me a fan of Ryan Laukat.

Reviewing his past efforts, I noticed he appears a fan of expansions: Empires of the Void looks to have had three; City of Iron had at least one; even the blurb for his unreleased War of the Void references the intention for expansion.

Has Ryan discussed an intention to expand The Ancient World at all?

EotV just had a print and play full expansion and a couple of promos. City of Iron has an expansion and the 8ME: Legends is getting one.

AW doesn't seem like it needs an expansion (unlike EotV did), but I'm sure if it does well I'm sure we have a good chance of an expansion (though I have no idea really).

And nice to learn about War of the Void!

I disagree. Ancient world seems lacking in a few ways, mainly in strategic depth and pressure from the Titans. It's a pretty game but lacking sustinence. It isn't bad just feels like it's missing something

Have you tried the promos? I just ordered them from the link in this thread:

Available from Print & Play Games

They have all three promo tiles available for purchase.

Yeah, I ultimately ended up selling it. While Ryan makes beautiful looking art I think the gameplay itself is lacking in all of his titles. I think he should partner with someone to help out in that regards, but to each their own.

What exactly do each of these three promos do? Are they extra buildings or action spaces, haven't played in awhike. Is there a link somewhere to what exactly they do and where you put them during setup?

The Ancient World: The Frog God Statue Promo - This was given to backers of the Ancient World Kickstarter. It was a sort of unannounced bonus gift to the backers. It is an additional action space, that uses the usual placement rules (go there with a citizen of greater skill than previously placed). After all players have passed, before moving on to the between rounds income phase players with a citizen there may in turn order pay a coin to take an action ignoring all previously placed citizens on that space.

The Ancient World: The Sacred Cave - This is available for free as a download, the weblink can be found on its page. It is an additional action space taken with the usual placement rule. Pay a coin, gain a sword (as with Draft), then look at the top three cards of any one of the Titan decks and you may rearrange their order, then you may attack the top Titan (as you would if you had taken the attack action.

The Ancient World: Citadel of Ivories Promo - Available as a promotion for a Dice Tower Kickstarter. It is an additional action space taken with usual placement rule. Roll a titan damage die, then if it comes up a titan take a knowledge, a coin take a coin, or a blank do nothing.
