Lookout games just announced at their facebook page that there will be an expansion for 'Oh My Goods!' at Spiel Essen.

Quote:
Also: Die Gerüchte sind wahr, es wird in Essen eine Erweiterung zu OMG geben - ein Szenario. "Aufruhr in Longsdale" bringt neue Gebäude, Ziele, Stories... erhältlich, solange der Vorrat reicht, bei Lookout am Stand. Die Version ist Deutsch/Englisch zweisprachig.


My approximate translation of this news:
The rumors are true, there will be an expansion to OMG at Essen - a scenario. "Aufruhr in Longsdale" will bring new buildings, goals, stories... Availabe, as long as it's in stock, in the Lookout stand. The version is German/English bilangual.

I can't wait to go to Essen and get this! Mr. Pfister, great job bringing us expansions both for OMG and Port Royal this Essen!!

More information and a German interview with Alexander Pfister on the Reich der Spiele website. (EDIT: this first said Lookout website, that was wrong). Is it okay by BGG rules if I post a link to that website here?

I don't see why not. It's not advertising a product, it's just an interview.

Note that Alexander Pfister mentioned in another thread that the expansion won't have a wide distribution, so grab it from Essen if you can, or get it from Lookout's web store soon after, or you may never get another chance!

It's #2 on my go-to-first list for Essen at the moment, and we're arriving at Thursday, so that should work out

Does anyone know if that works with the Royal Goods Version?

I think so... I have Royal Goods as well. The only difference between the version is the rules, right? And those can be downloaded.

No reason it shouldn't be. The cards did not change between the rules editions.

Alex (Yeager), Since you are here, can you tell us if it will be available in the GeekStore or elsewhere in the US?

The expansion is coming to the US but it might take some time.

Can I piggyback on this and ask whether any copies will be available in the UK at retail?

Thanks!

Your best bet will be the Lookout web store.

Some (German) information on the expansion is also at Alex Pfirster's blog:
http://alexanderpfister.blogspot.de/2016/08/vor-ca-13-monate...

Quote:
Und jetzt kommt eben die 1.Erweiterung heraus.

Die 1.Erweiterung wird ein neues Spielsystem haben: Ich nenne es "dynamischer Eventkartenstapel". Ich werde versuchen diese Mechanik auch bei anderen Spielen einzubauen. Es ermöglicht mir mit relativ einfachen Mittel eine Geschichte zu erzählen. Die Erweiterung "Longsdale in Aufruhr" tut genau das. Es geht über 5 Kapitel und neue Gebäude werden nach und nach eingeführt. Wer keine Geschichte mag, spielt einfach das Kapitel "All inclusive" - alle Gebäude enthalten, zufällige Aufgabe. Das Spiel wird nicht groß im Handel erhältlich sein. Günstig und klein, für Fans und Sammler eben.Auch sehr gut solo zu spielen.

Die Geschichte zu Longsdale in Aufruhr:
Unruhen machen sich in der Hauptstadt Longsdale breit. Es gibt Gerüchte, es könne bald Krieg geben. Und dann auch noch die Rebelen. Der König braucht eure Hilfe. Findet allein oder mit bis zu vier Spielern in den fünf Kapiteln dieser Erweiterung heraus, wie die Geschichte ausgeht. Und wer weiß? Vielleicht wenden eure Entscheidungen gar das Schicksal ...

Rough english summary:
- The title will be sth. like "Uproar(/Turmoil/Rebellion) in Longsdale"
- It's planned to tell a story based on event decks (5 chapters)
- It's possible to play normal in an "all inclusive" mode with all buildings and a random task
- It will not be largely available, for collectors and fans only, but small and cheap
- good solo playability
- Generic medival story: Possibly war at the kingdom, king needs help,...



@AlexP:
Will there be more interaction in the expansion?
(The base game is pretty much free of it - I think there's only catching an assistant first and ending the game, the rest is completely solitaire)

The English title is "Longsdale in Revolt"

Regarding interaction: The king demands us to build a new building type called Watchtower - to defend against the rebels. Watchtowers give you "strength". People are in competition to have more strength than their neighbours.

This will not make the game suddenly highly interactive, but some interaction is added.

Whew! Finally, a reason for me NOT to seek out this collector's item. I feel much better now.

EDIT: Will you (designer) or you (publisher) be adding the expansion to BGG at some point? It's handy to have a place to write notes.

Anyone know why Lookout isn't putting the expansion for sale on their website till after Spiele? I get wanting to make sure they have copies for the fair, but it'd be nice to make sure some people who aren't going to the fair also have access to it. just my two cents.
