Will an H.H. Holmes serial killer expansion be a stretch goal?

Haha, just what this game needs, some form of Traitor mechanic. Not sure how that could be added though.
Maybe it would operate like the Bio-Terrorist in Pandemic. You're all competing to be the most prestigious in the World's Fair, at the same time a serial killer is wracking up a death toll. Too many victims... and the Fair shuts down, Bum bum bum!

Hi Randy, will there be any stretch goals? One thing I might suggest, if you haven't thought of it already, is the possibility of upgrading the cubes to custom shaped meeples. In fitting with the theme, perhaps the meeples could have a top hat or something? Alternatively they could be balloon shaped? Just a thought

I think an Elias Disney card might be a little more "on theme," since Walt's Dad was a contractor who worked on the White City

We will be leaving out any mention of Dr. Holmes. The theme of the World's Fair is a perfect fit for our brand: we are particularly looking to publish games with fresh themes that celebrate what's good in the world. Including one of the first serial killers in the game just wouldn't quite fit that.

That said, based on the number of times people have asked about this, I would be a little surprised if no one makes a fan expansion. I'll be happy to help playtest any such expansion.

@Jeremy, I love that idea! I'm imagining meeples with top hats (men) and dresses and hats (women), patterned after the two people in the foreground of the painting below. I'm getting custom meeples quoted right now. With 88 cubes in the game, I suspect upgrading the game itself would push the cost of the game too high no matter how many we print. But we might be able to offer that as an add-on.

@Randy, that would be super amazing! Even if it is a 'deluxe' pledge level I would get on board with that! Or an add on, however you want to run it
