Like the title says, can this expansion be used with the 1st edition?

And how much will it be?

The "Tourist Meeples" wouldn't be compatible, since there isn't anything like that in the earlier edition.

The rest of the expansion appears compatible gameplay-wise; I suppose the question is whether the wineries meeples fit adequately on the old player boards and whether the new bottles would fit on to the old wine fair track spaces.

The Eagle-Gryphon website has a pre-order for about 15$ US. The shipping cost is quite high, however (twice the price of the actual product, at least for my location).

Hi Nick,

Great question. First, understand that Vinhos Deluxe was created as a deluxe edition with new art, new rules and even new, larger board and components. It also includes two rules sets, one for the new edition - Special Vintage 2016 Edition and one for the old edition - 2010 Reserve Edition, which will also help with some rules changes Vital wanted to include. In terms of rules, there should not be much of a problem.

From the Kickstarter:

2010 Reserve Edition

The 2010 Reserve Edition retains the game play of the original 2010 edition with only a few minor changes that affect overall balance and implementation of the many expansions (Madeira, Experts, Extended Vinyards, etc.)

That said, Vital has noted that the Tasting Room Expansion specifically will be compatible because it is all wooden pieces. He does note that the Tourist was designed to be used in the new version, but thinks players can adapt the rule for the Tourist.

We are uncertain about the other expansions because of the component sizes and new art. It will not clear how well they will work until we receive final copies and test them.

We do not have a date when this testing be completed, although we do expect the games to arrive in the next few weeks, including Vital's copies so he can participate in the testing.

Of course, as soon as the games arrive, first priority will be to get them out to our Kickstarter Backers, then pre orders, retailers and distribution.

Here is a link to all the possible combinations so you can determine prices: [url]http://www.eaglegames.net/SearchResults.asp?Search=vinhos

By the way, there are 4 individual expansions: Connoisseurs, Experts, Islands and Tasting Rooms. There is also a bundle option, and options to include them with the base Vihnos Deluxe edition game.

You can read more about it on the Kickstarter which lays everything out in detail, including pictures: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/167427101/vinhos-deluxe...

Hope that helps!

Tell me, have you found the Yellow Sign?

Quick question:
Do the Winery wooden bits have an extra rule that accompanies them? Or are they basically just something to "bling up" your game, as are the bottles and the rack?

No extra rules. "...just something to "bling up" your game, as are the bottles and the rack?"
