I had pretty much shelved my hopes of a post kickstarter expansion for this game, but a recent Man vs. Meeple youtube video hinted that they may be hearing about an upcoming expansion for Blood Rage. It seems logical to me that CMoN would capitalize on this popular property and add some more to it...but this all may be apocryphal. Anyone else hearing anything?

Oooh, I would love this. I only have the 5 player expansion which is amazing. The other ones have had such mixed reviews I haven't touched them yet. Visiting 401games this weekend and may look at Mystics....though not quite sure they're worth it.

There is a spiritual successor being worked on, but Eric Lang has said they are not any other expansions planned. But you never know, things can change.

whistle All of this is true as a rumor, and I was just about to post the same thing from the same source. I came across it when looking at the new Gen Con reviews and previews coming out on youtube. Mr. Lang has been saying "no more variants," but its a VERY popular game, and they are in business to sell games...

Here's your link. Since its a 46 min preview of Gen Con games, they briefly mention a few rumors at the end about Post Gencon things possibly coming, and its one of them noted in passing:

I thought it would be a legacy game - Throw your units from Valhalla into the fireplace.

Maybe a crowd-related game or a circle game where your dead pieces get mailed to the next person in the ring.

The game is done, and fine as is.

From CMON expo news

"They also announced Hate, based on the Adrian Smith’s graphic novel of the same name. The game is a competitive survival board game set in a gritty, post-apocalyptic world. Players will be forced to ask how far they would go to survive."

Anyone know why it is considered the spiritual successor or Blood Rage (mechanics and what not)? I really like the theme of Blood Rage so this would need to be a great game that really evolves the mechanics for me to buy it. If the game play is close enough to be a spiritual successor it would actually need to be good enough to replace Blood Rage since I do not have room for similar games. But thats just me.

Whereas the distant ancestor of Blood Rage was Risk, Rising Sun claims Diplomacy as its distant ancestor. Tackle negotiations, alliances, war and seppuku.


Sounds like it'll be different overall.

Eric Lang said in an interview from GenCon just now (if I can remember correctly) the game is in the same mythological "dudes on a map" type game where honor is what you want to get. But the game is different enough from Blood Rage.

As stated above Diplomacy is the ancestor of the game so there are ways to form alliances with other players and you get bonuses, then you can backs tab them, however you do lose honor for backstabbing.

Taking a shot in the dark, I would say the similarity between Zombicide and the forthcoming Massive Darkness is about the similarity of Blood Rage and Rising Sun. Several similar mechanics but definitely has a few core differences to make it unique.

Or later? What was the most recent KS to hit retail?

I guess Masmorra was March so they can do it pretty fast.

Thanks for the info....Looks like I get to be on the fence then Passed on Massive Darkness for now because I felt it was too close to Black Plague personally and I love BP. I figure come season 2 it will be different enough heh.
