Hi,

I know it's quite early to ask the question ... but is there any plan to release a box gathering the base game and the yet-to-come expansion ? (either in the English version or in the French version)

I discovered the game recently, learned about the French edition and the expansion (in English) being available late 2016 few days ago and I wouldn't buy the base game at Essen, the expansion few months later and learn that a base game + expansion box is out one year later.

So, is there yet a firm decision regarding this ?

I believe this has been asked, and IIRC, the answer for now was no.

I would be very surprised if there were, at any time in the future. It seems given the high volume of Scythe already on the market, it would seem unwise to put out a big box so soon after the initial release. Also, I am pretty sure that it was stated that the expansion would fit in the initial game box (though tight) thus yet another reason not to buy the big box.

From my experience, Big Box games are usually many years after the initial production of the base game and incorporates multiple expansions that had been released. It seems a bit unrealistic to think that there might be a big box version of Scythe coming out when the game is just now hitting the mass market.

As it is now, Scythe IS a big-box edition! In fact, I have a bit of room to spare when it is packed, and I do not have to pack it carefully to get everything to fit.

I feel certain that it will hold the one planned expansion for Scythe - so there is no need for a larger box.

If they ever did increase the size, it would probably not be called the 'big-box' edition, but the 'even bigger box' edition!

Thanks for your question, but no, there are definitely no plans to release a big box version of Scythe, nor do I think we'll ever do that. The plan for the future is to sell the retail version of Scythe along with individual special accessories and expansions (all through retailers, not from our website).

By "big box" I meant "a single box with both the base game and the expansion".

So thanks for the official answer I will buy both boxes after the release of the expansion.
