Description says "6 expansion modules included"

I believe this is the 5 expansion modules from Kingsburg: To Forge a Realm and 1 brand new one, correct?

Can the publisher confirm the new module will be available separately for those who have the first edition? If so, how will it be available? BGG store or will it be available at local game stores?

Thanks

I don't think I've ever seen FF release upgrade kits with the pseudo exception of Descent. Likely, given that this is a second edition (instead of a new printing or some combined special edition) there will likely be rules changes. Could be subtle like Runewars or major like Descent. Regardless, this IP is not bigger the Descent so you better sell your original copy now before people catch on - that is if you want the new version.

Ah FF, giving the big FU to your current customers to try and screw some new ones.


I don't think it'll be FF who will be publishing the second edition.

I just noticed that when the box image got added. Color me excited! That almost strongly implied an upgrade kit will not happen.


From the designer (in the Kingsburg forum)

Luke the Flaming wrote:

It is a reprint with different artwork; the game is the same (identical, plus the 6th module).
It is intended for those that do not own it already.
If you think that the game needs to be "fixed", your best option are house rules.


Luke the Flaming wrote:


The rights to publish the game and the rights to use the old artwork belong to different people. They did not reach an agreement.
The publisher thus had two options: no reprint or new artwork.
It it NOT intended as an "improvement" (I love the old artwork as well), but as a necessity to avoid OOP status forever.

If you already own the game, no one is trying to convince you to buy it again (in fact, we insisted to have a "6th module only" option to underline that you do not need to buy it all again).
This new edition is intended for people that do not own the game yet (but would like to).


I'm just hoping to get confirmation that the 6th module only option hasn't changed and how it will be available (BGG store, local game stores, etc)

That's good news. I already own Kingsburg and the expansion. I enjoy it but wouldn't want to buy an "improved" edition of the game. I like the attitude they took to avoid OOP and stuff.

So as i understand it, this is the full game plus the expansion and the 6th module (new one) correct?

I've been wanting to buy Kingsburg, but want to buy whichever one ends up being better or a better investment. I'm surprised based on its popularity that there isn't more on this release around here!

Let's say that the art rework kind of cooled the mood ^^"

That said, personally, I'm stoked.

Yeah, I poked around the forums a little more and that seems to be the popular sentiment. It's odd that they went for an "old euro" look, when the game was such a successful hybrid of theme and eurogame. Such a strange decision. I hate when bad marketing ends up hurting a good piece of art.

As I explained elsewhere rights for the art remained from one side, right of the game from the other.

They could not reprint without one of the part so they cut the knot and changed the art.

I'm really not making a tragedy out of this. Give me KB again and I will be super happy.

Understood. I still play Glory to Rome even though I have that little striped badge below my profile. I whine, but I accept.

I only own the base game right now, so does anyone know how I can get my hands on the contents from To Forge a Realm? There doesn't seem to be an expansion only bundle, right?

I'm not sure I follow. You have Kingsburg 1st edition?

To Forge a Realm is the expansion and was released by itself (Kingsburg: To Forge a Realm) so if you want the contents from it, buy it.

If you have Kingsburg 1st edition and buy the expansion, you will then just need to pick up the 6th module (which supposedly will be available by itself) and that allegedly would be equivalent as far as content goes to Kingsburg 2nd edition

Yes, I have Kingsburg first edition. To Forge A Realm is currently out of print and I think it probably will stay that way with the second edition coming out. My question is how do I get my hands on To Forge A Realm at this point? They are not selling it anymore, and buying the second edition gets me two copies of the base game.

Well thanks for pointing out the obvious; I know it's out of print, which means prices are sky high. I'm not shelling out more than the MSRP of $30 for it. At this point, it's probably cheaper to buy the second edition than to buy the high OOP prices for the expansion. So it seems like that people with the first edition without the expansion are forced to buy the second edition if they want their hands on the expansion. I was hoping for a To Forge a Realm + 6th module upgrade kit.

Once the second edition hits it's possible the expansion price will go down. Especially if it's cheaper for most people to just buy the second edition instead.

I recommend editing your subscription to the expansion so you get notification of newly listed items, just in case.
