I think they said it would be released in Q1 2015, when I asked about it at SPIEL.

What the OP said. I can't wait for this one to be released. Has anyone heard any updates?

To be honest I don't see how this will get released before GenCon. The items were meant for the last years GenCon initially, then someone thought to combine them into a new expansion and add some mechanics and now their attention seems to be on developing Sons of Anarchy and Mutant Revolution as possibly more profitable prospects.

Considering how they've given no dates, no news, no promotions, this is not one of their priorities :/

Such negativity! I choose to believe we will have this in the first half of 2015. And I have just as much evidence as you! :-)

Cheer up... blood will soak the sand... eventually!

It is very surprising that Spartacus doesn't get more attention from both the publisher and us players. It is a brilliant game. It is also a much better game than Firefly (from the same publisher), which does get a lot of attention and expansions (I don't dislike Firefly in any way, but it is certainly not as involving as Spartacus).

I agree about Spartacus. I started watching the series because I loved the game so much. It's a Top 10 game for me. You're making me nervous about Firefly now - I've just got the game and all expansions and look forward to playing it once I've finished re-watching the series.

Well, they missed the Winter 2014 release which was announced and haven't released any new information whatsoever beyond the box art. Sure we have as much evidence, but I'm simply drawing conclusions from what we've seen so far

I have all of Firefly also. I've even painted the ships. Don't worry - it is a nice game, but more of an experience than a contest. While I would compare Spartacus to the best games of all time, Firefly is more like "story telling" (perhaps it could be likened to Last Night on Earth and Fortune and Glory).

I usually sell a lot of games, which I consider, as "played to be boring game".

Spartacus is part of my "forever game" collection. I still love this game, although I didn't play with it for about a half year.

I hope they will release the new exp soon. I'm really glad, that they will correct the Batiatus house rules.

I'm intrigued now. I'll have to let you know what I think when I've played it because I LOVE Fortune & Glory (also a Top 10 game), but hated Last Night on Earth! I'm still on the fence about Shadows of Brimstone as a result.

Which rule is being corrected?

Well, I do not know, because it is not released yet.
The Batiatus house collects Gladiators, cause it can get back most of the money from them. That player also needs a lot of luck, to find cards, which give benefits after the Gladiator collection. That is the bad point of the game. If Batiatus do not find any of these cards, he probably won't be a great Dominus.

So I guess, they changed the rules, so then Batiatus can benefit more from his Gladiators.

If it is any consolation I think Firefly is more like FANG than LNoE. I also like FANG and will keep it (painting all the models was a chore), but it will not enter my top 10 since I prefer games that can be played like a competition (too much randomness in FANG and Firefly for that).

The problem I found with Firefly, even with the expansions, is that there isn't an awful lot of player interaction. Every time I've played it you see who's going to win a mile off and there is nothing you can do to stop them.

Even the new 'boarding' rules don't really harm people too much.

Completely different to Spartacus where it's all about player interaction.

That is the reason why I did not buy Firefly, but I bought Sons of Anarchy.

Can anyone read some details? I am really curious to Theokles new ability. What is that orange square token? Give me details.

You don't know that, not for sure. They might just be bluffing to get you to lend them some of your influence.

As I can read Theokles power:

SHADOW of DEATH: If Theokles in Primus
SHALL I BEGIN? Once a Primus, may reset? a dice? ... fall, instead of attacking.

Help mi out with that middle part.

I read it as the following but doesn't seem right:

Shadow of Death: No Teammate in Primus
Shall I Begin?: During a primus, may reset all dice ***** ** fail, instead of attacking

So he heal himself. Theokles can truly fight alone in this way by himself.

Reset all dice to full. So yeah, he can get all his health back once during the primus.
