Andy posted this on one of the boardgame groups on Facebook recently describing the expansion. Sounds fantastic!

====================================

First we have 45 new tribe cards with some new interesting abilities and ten new boarder cards.

Then there is water as a new element in the game which is kind of a Joker, e.g. you can swap 2 water tokens for any 1 good token. Many of the new tribe cards let the players choose to spend gold or some water tokens. So, in some aspects, it is a little easier to build. Water also alows You to do some special actions and You can gain bonus points for leftover water tokens at the end of the game.

Also there is a new meeple, the Targia! She is a special pawn like the robber. But she is much more positive for the players. She starts in the opposite direction of the robber and moves each turn one edge card. When you place one of your Targi on the same card you get a favor: either a goods token of your choice or you can gamble and spend one good to reveal the top card from the draw pile and receive what it shows. So, sometimes a less attractive edge card is now more interesting because the Targia offers an additional reward.

And finally, we have shifting sand cards which give the players rather strong immediate advantages when you place a Targi on it. But since these shifting sands are placed next to the central playing area you will lose an intersection on the central cards, this is the element with the most profound impact on the way You play Targi!

These are the main features of the expansion. :-)

Definitely sounds to be worth playing. The base game is totally fine the way it is, but im very interested in trying out this expansion.

I'm SO sad that I have to buy this in a language I can't read!

That being said, can we get a list of pieces in this game? I'm making an insert for Targi and would really like to box them together. From what I gather from reading various places:

1 New meeple
?? Water tokens
45 Tribe cards
?? Shifting sand cards

Thanks for any info. And, Andy, I guess it's time to get some water tokens from MeepleSource to match the others!

Sorry that there will probably no English version

So this is in the box:

1 new meeple
45 tribe cards
10 boarder cards
5 goods cards
20 shifting sand cards
6 goods token
15 water token (same format as the goods)
1 gold coin
8 vicory point tokens
6 activation tokens (little triangles)

Hope that meeple source will jump on the bandwagon again

Thanks, Andy. Will you be making a cheat sheet that translates for us?

Also, what are the 6 goods? And, are the gold coin and VP tokens the same as in the original game?

Yes I will personally provide a translation that You can use as paste up or spread sheet. I will also translate the rules.

There are two salt/date/pepper tokens the same like in the base game. Also the gold and the VP are the same ones.

One last question and I'll quit bothering you!

The VP tokens...are they all 1 point in value?

I'm trying to get an order in for the tokens, so just want to be sure.

Thanks again for all the info.

As far as I can tell, squabbling between Z-man games and Kosmos.

As usual, the consumer gets the short end of the stick.

Stronghold games should pick up the expansion.

It's unclear whether you'd like the game in an English version, or an English-speaking based web site......I'm guessing the latter since there is enough confirmation at this point that there are no plans for an English version, yet.

You can preorder the expansion from Funagain.
