Some info from The Spiel podcast (http://thespiel.net/?q=node/1174) with Isaac Vega recorded at GenCon (DoW Expansion info starting at about 19:20 mark):

-Standalone big box that can be mixed in with the original game or played by itself.
-All new charcters
-Six double sided location boards (some events in the game will cause the locations to flip to the other side).
-Seventh special location board.
-New crisis cards
-New secret objectives


Christmas promo coming out (Isaac teased the image on twitter) that will probably be available through Plaid Hat website for ~$6.

Edit: fixed spelling errors

Hopefully she'll come included with the expansion if you preorder or something.

I imagine this will also likely mean extra location decks (perhaps new item types?) and new crossroad cards related to the new characters.

That's a lot more than what I expected... I thought they would just come out with a small expansion that adds more search cards and maybe one or two new mechanics and focus on the next crossroads game.

Man, I wish they were releasing some more concrete information for us. I was hoping for just a small expansion adding characters and cards and new objectives. That would have been great. Now I have so many questions about these new double sided locations, how things work with the base game, will this effectively replace the base game even though it's an "expansion", etc. It all sounds awesome but this just reminds us we know nothing...so this unfortunately won't be out any time soon.

FWIW, We've been working on the expansion since I got my production copy of the game last July. =-)

Which will come first: the Dead of Winter expansion or the new Crossroads game?

I texted Jon Gilmour a couple times, but he was too wrapped up to demo. :soblue:

I am very sorry about not being able to meet up! It was so incredibly busy this year.

No worries. I totally understand. As long as I have your attention, great work on Vault Wars. My favorite game from Gen Con 2015!
