Yes, it's an expansion, and we're going to publish it. The design team has been busy and we can expect all kinds of interesting twists for the game when Dynasties is out.

Preliminany plans for the expansion include
- additional nations
- Dynasties
- Turmoils
- Natural wonders

More information will follow at a later date.

We hope you're all as excited about this as we are

Cool! So much new stuff! I'm looking forward to hear some updates on the expansion. Will you use new nations proposed by the fans a year ago in one of the threads here on BGG?

Yay! We have been waiting for this! And yes I'm as excited as you are!

And of course some questions:

So there won't be any extra ages?

Will the additional nations add the player count or will it stay at five?

Also interested in how the dybasties and turmoils will work. In addition what mechanics will be used to discover these natural wonders since, I guess, just purchasing a natural wonder doesn't seem logical.

And of course when could we be expecting this expansion? You mention "preliminary plans", so I'm taking it that the expansion isn't very close to completion?

The contests and other discussions have been of big help in getting us going in new directions. We have worked through it again and again so much of what helped us is not recognizable at all now. I think there is one individual card that is pretty close to a suggestion in one of the contests. The number of new Nations we have tried is silly...

Well, with the production difficulties we've had with Nations Dice Game (which by the way should now finally be shipping out of China), we left that info out deliberately. The aim is Essen 2015, but before we know more, "it's ready when it's ready" is all we'll say at this stage .

As you've surely noticed already, Rustan is looking for testers in another thread. This means nothing on this project is carved in stone yet.
...Except the name perhaps.

We hope to give further info on this during summer.

Any updates on Dynasties that you can share? New nations or any other details? Looking forward to this expansion.

As an aside, I taught Nations to a couple of my non-gaming friends this past weekend. After a couple of rounds, they really got into it. I played King and they played Chieftain, which balanced things nicely. Nations might now unseat Puerto Rico for them, which is a rather big deal given how much they love PR. This is fast becoming my go-to game for introducing "serious" games to non-gamers. Kudos.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.
