The Pandante kickstarter is now live:

The Light & Dark expansion for Pandante is unusual in a few ways. Usually expansions make a game more complicated. This one actually makes Pandante simpler, easier to explain, and faster to play. The core rules have been streamlined, many exceptions have been removed, and the flow of play has fewer steps so you can get through a gambit faster.

There's a list of changes to the core game as well as the rulebook, here:

The Pandante: Light & Dark expansion also adds lots of new content. Here's the four types of new content:

--Use the Light abilities (fun!) or an all-new set of Dark (miserable!) abilities
--Casino cards that change a rule about the game each gambit
--Panda Champions that give each player a special power
--Diamond Dreams mode that makes the blue chips into powerups rather than just money

And here's the punchline: you can mix and match that content however you want. Dark abilities with Casino cards? Yes. Panda Champions in Diamond Dreams mode? Yes. All of it at once? Yes, if you want that level of insanity. It's up to you, and you can start with streamlined core game that's simpler than ever.

If you have never played Pandante before, the new base sets INCLUDE the expansion content built right in. The standard version now comes with plastic chips, and the deluxe version is nicer than ever. If you already have a Pandante deck and chips, you can just get the expansion. All three versions (standard, deluxe, and expansion) now come with a large centralized betting board rather than separate boards for each player. This makes it much easier to tell who has the highest claimed hand at any given time, which is important for computing the cost of "snacks".

This is a great time to jump into the game if you haven't tried them before. It's better than ever and it's been a blast developing it and playing all the new content. It's your turn now!
