I just picked up the base game and it looks like this expansion is almost a must have. Does anyone know if they are still printing it? Their website shows it as sold out and the prices are ridiculous for available copies.

Z-Man has been notorious lately for NOT reprinting expansions. What happened with this one was the main reason I snapped up the Merchants & Marauders expansion while it was still available. I don't foresee it getting reprinted any time soon.

Mike, Clash of Cultures is one of the best games I've ever played. I own the expansion and have played it once; it does improve the game. But I've played the base game between 20-30 times (most of those were within the first year of owning it, but then it got too hard to get a game going as life happened).

Forget about the expansion, don't drive yourself nuts over it. The base game is incredible.

Sadly, no. There is no reprint planned. To my knowledge the base game got a fist and second printing, so a little easier to find, but the expansion only got one small print run. The reanimated corpse that is the current Zman games has answered on multiple occaisions that no reprint is planned. Given tbe production problems it probably won't ever get one unless a more competant company were to acquire the game rights.

There is plenty to play just in the base game! The expansion is icing on the cake.

Send an email (or tweet) to Z-Man expressing interest. I have, and maybe if they see a large demand, they will reprint... hopefully.

Understandably, a reprint seems too risky to them, but that is what kickstarter is for.

I am one of those lucky few who own the expansion. But if they managed to put up a kickstarter with the game plus expansion PLUS a fifth player, I would be all in.

Lucky few? How many were printed? I own a copy and I'm happy to sell the base game with the expansion to anyone who makes a reasonable offer - I'm clearing out the conflict-heavy games in my collection.

Well we were playtesting a really good 5-6p expansion (with many other goodies besides) before Z-Man lost all appetite in this area. I'm not sure if Christian has the rights to the game to run his own Kickstarter - Z-Man won't do it...

So it sounds like I should just enjoy the base game.. Or buy the rights from Z-Man and have my company make a new version.

Really? man that would be amazing; and at the same time, it's a shame watching Z-Man sitting on this game doing nothing. An undeserved fate for a true masterpiece.

I sent Z-Man an email asking about the rights to the game. They have not emailed back yet, big surprise.

wow

An additional player expansion would have been amazing. Hopefully someone will pick this game up in the future, because I would totally throw my money at such an endeavor.

Agreed. I have many amazing 2-4p games that rarely get played (and almost never at more than 2p) because group gaming is almost always 5 or 6 players, and no-one wants to split to 2 games.

That's one of the contributing factors for today's sale of all my CoC stuff.

I would happily team up n play. Just see the game played n helping out with rules.
For such an awesome game. Though 5-6 player would do a world of good

I would be interested in hearing about this 5-6 player expansion with goodies. Was this a fan-made expansion? Or something from Christian Marcussen himself?

It was going to be official, but Christian got busy with his day job, so development and testing went on hiatus.

Meanwhile, Sea of Glory nearly didn't get printed, and Civilizations came out with lots of complaining about the miniatures while the oozing mini problem of the base game continued, and I'm assuming the publisher hasn't asked for another expansion.

Regarding 5-6 player. I got stuck on finding a smart way to implement it without the downtime becoming insufferable.

Just for feedback Christian - although we tested it with the simultaneous play markers and without, we preferred without, and honestly din't find the downtime to be an issue.

For >2p I almost always play 5-6p now, and everyone is quite content with the downtime.
