Just got the Taj Mahal reprint and like it a lot.
Wanted to know if anyone had heard if there will be a reprint of the white palace expansion. Love to get my hands on some of those additional pieces for the game.

The white palaces has never been part of an expansion.
They were made as freebie to fans of the game. No official rules have ever been released, they were merely meant as a cute gift.

I have the white palaces and have had no need to open the package. There was one three-player game where one player used exactly all of his palaces, but we haven't had to dip into the white ones yet.

I know I'd like to get my hands on some of the white palaces. I've run out of palaces before and had to use a different color. (Although this was in a 3 or 4 player game, never in 5.)

...out of curiosity...what benefit do the white palaces have over just using the unused palaces from the box?

Um... none I guess. Except white would be the offical extra piece color. And the random chance that someone might need more in a 5 player game. And I know they are out there, so I want them... ugh

Sorry, but I have no plans to make more of the white palaces.
If Reiner ever comes up with a way for 6 to play, however....

With that official word....

Is there anyone out there that has the white palaces and sees no need for them, could they PM me so that I might trade/purchase the items from them?

I'm a bit whore too.

Thanks....

Since you would likely use all the palaces ONLY in a 3 player game, having a set of white palaces allows every player to have a distinct second color.

If even two people need more palaces, let alone all three, then I want to see the size of that board. I'm not even sure if the board can hold that many palaces. In our three player game, we had every spot filled and we still didn't run out.
