I'm impatiently waiting for the expansion to this game to come out but I feel like there is very little official information out there - have I missed an announcement somewhere?

Things I'd love to see -

More characters - I esp. love Sparky, so would like to have another survivor pet in the game (even if I just put one into play during the game).

New locations - even to swap one location for another would be pretty cool.

More zombie standees - somehow there is at least 1 point in our games where we have to use the zombie tokens and they just aren't the same!

More objectives, crises (with perhaps some different rewards if you add extra things other than +1 morale), crossroads cards, etc. More, more, more! laugh

We played an amazing game of DoW on Sunday so it is making me think about all the cool extra things PlaidHat might put into an expansion.

Interesting things in that link. Double sided locations would probably represent the colony moving to new areas making the location change.

As for the seventh special location, probably an enemy colony of some sort creating new dangers.

Maybe the second-sided locations are over-run so have to be entered/searched in different ways? Or have to be cleared out before their item decks become available? Or maybe can be made in to a colony by exiled factions? The differing locations could be represented by single-sided ones and mixed with the ones from the main set to represent different towns, so I don't think that intrinsicly they're about location changes. Really can't wait for details to be confirmed though! There was talk about the faction leaders having a more significant role (prior to play testing for the first release) so it'll be interesting to see if they try to bring some of that back in with the expansion

Strange how the game keeps selling out but there is little to no buzz on an entire standalone expansion.

Not that strange - Plaid Hat have been pushing Tail-Feathers and Ashes, and haven't released any social media friendly objects (like articles and photos) for this yet. Once they start to do that, I expect it to pick up a bit more notice

For anyone that doesn't want to/can't watch the video, a summary of the expansion:

- 20 new survivors
- a customizable colony (upgrades/improvements)
- new cards for the old decks (objectives, crisis)
- new Event deck
- new location (labeled Raxxon in the video)
- new zombies (new art, plus a new type called Frost Walkers)
- Bandits
- a new Despair affliction

If it wasn't apparent from all the stuff included, the expansion is completely stand-alone, or can be mixed together with the original game.

The new stuff sounds amazing. Hopefully we will soon learn more about them.

Bandits might take a nornal zombie spot based on the stars they sticked on tge zombies. Frost zombies might always give frostbite instead of normal wounds.

Despair might be gained when.another character dies in your location. Being a permanent wound which can't be removed.
