Any news on a possible KS campaign for the 'upcoming' expansion?
Would be nice if we could add some flavour to the already awesome base game...

I don't know anything about any kickstarter campaign, but we did give Dice Hate Me / Greater Than Games an expansion that adds passengers, passenger cars, a board, and a physical train piece

Our hope is to have the expansion up on Kickstarter in September. I should have a prototype with me at GenCon.

Thanx for the quick reply.
As a train engineer always looking for thematic and portable games. Isle of Trains combines both very well (Great Heartland Hauling Co belongs to that same category) :-)

Dice Hate Me Games attending Spiel Essen this year?

I'm not really sure just yet. If there is any attendance it's likely to be just me there to do networking and such. We may have some product for sale through Board & Dice, but we haven't finalized any arrangements.

Cheers,
Chris

Hey! I have it on my list to bring a copy of Angry Dice with me to the con. Please drop by the Greater Than Games booth and grab it from me.

Any news on the expansion?

There is a sale coming with IoT, and I wannamknow if it worth it to snag now, or wait for the KS campaign?

We're working on pricing for the expansion so we can run the best KS campaign for it. Stay tuned to the IoT BGG page for an announcement. We are still hoping to shoot for a November launch with the expansion and the original game. If it seems to be too long to wait, there's no reason not to order the base game and enjoy it in the meantime.

Cheers,
Chris

Great news! The game needs an expansion.

Please do consider:
- the total no. of cards (in a 4 player game the draw deck tends to run out quite often)
- adding a 5th player, again with enough cards to go around
- more cabooses - especially some that can mitigate weight requirements or loading goods
- some variability with the contract island set-up
- box size (I do appreciate the small format, but once you sleeve the cards it's impossible to fit them back in and close the lid all the way) - perhaps putting the expansion in a "Great Heartland" type box would be better

Cheers,
Andrei

You will be happy to hear that at least 3 of those concerns are addressed in the expansion, and another one is not directly addressed, but is sort of addressed indirectly.

I had posted a short periscope video of some people playing a prototype a while ago:

It's still on our docket, but the timing is uncertain. We're currently working through a production backlog.

I just got an email from Daniel Guidera about the last of the expansion art, so that's moving forward and should be finished soon. I'll be sure to post something in the forums when we have a firm date.

Cheers,
Chris

Definitely yes, but it will be 2018 before we launch it.
