Not sure but aren't these to replace the cardboard cut-out goblins (giant robots, goblin infantry, goblin cavalry and goblin artillery) encountered towards the end of the game? I think these may be more of a pimp than an expansion. Although, there are five figures and only four cut-outs so maybe the fifth figurine will be an expansion in the sense of an extra or alternative character to fight.

it's rare I actually say this, but to quote so many people,
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
i'm looking forward to this game. shame I didn't see anything on it at GenCon (but I may have overlooked it).

I just got my copy of Labyrinth and it came with an insert advertising the goblin expansion. It lists the contents as... 5 miniatures, 5 goblin labyrinth cards, and 1 rules leaflet. It also says 'order now from: www.riverhorsegames.com' but there is nothing on their website about it yet.

Same.


They must have assumed the expansion would be ready by now.

I reached out to River Horse and this is their response:

The Goblins expansion is going to be released sometime next year. For updates and news, please subscribe to our newsletter here, http://riverhorse.eu/subscribe/

Hope this helps, fellow gamers!

Since it includes actual Labyrinth cards we know it isn't just a cosmetic bits upgrade. Tonight I'll take a magnifying glass to the insert and see if any text is legible.

I looked closely at the goblin cards on the insert and they are the same goblin cards that come in the base game. They may have just used the existing cards as place holders for the advertisement.

Goblin
Goblins
Goblin mob
Goblin knight (only the simple one)
Goblin guards

I hope we get custom cards and maybe more memory challenges (repeat lines from the movie). I also really hope they eventually do a miniature for humongous. These goblin miniatures plus humongous would allow us to finally get rid of this ugly cardboard stand ups.

Anyone have any ideas for a more thematic active player token? Crystal juggling ball, owl pendant, Sarah's jewelry...

could you find it in your heart to scan and upload a picture or two of the flyer?

for a more thematic player token, the two things that come to mind are a clock (which we already have - but it would denote well time passing) or the "Labyrinth" book that she carries and quotes.

also an encounter with The Cleaners (miniature) would be so fun.

my only concern with this game is whether there is the ability to create any real expansions (such as a tunnels or bog sideboard), not just additional cards.

Hi, if you want the cleaners, get the goblin mincer miniature from Kings of War. I finished painting it last night and my game arrived today
