No details, sadly, but word is coming from GTS Come and Play Days trade show:
https://twitter.com/Flailbear/status/790942592691298304

I hope announcing four at once doesn't mean they are tiny, over priced card sets, or something. Because I have to buy them in any case.


Edit:
Twitter media getting me all excited. Here is more from the guy at the trade show:

Thanks, Coiote, for providing more information.

We can probably just delete this thread now.

Re: Expansions Announced
No surprise! I hope they make them modular although terraforming the dark side of Mars could be fun too.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

Re: Expansions Announced
I figured with the (well-deserved! ) success this game has seen, expansions would come along. I'm guessing if they announced 4 at once they're not all full-size/large expansions.

But hey, I'd buy them if they were! meeple

I assume it's four modules in one expansion box.

Here's hoping that they don't screw up a great game.

let's hope it's the case. Is there more information about these expansions?

Re: Expansions Announced
Interesting that they were announced when the creators don't have anything on their webpage about it. What they have revealed is that they are working on expansions here.

I have never been to a GTS show, but I have attended ACD Distribution's show and it had a lot of panels from various companies and stores. When a company was up speaking, it was usually about their upcoming products. The odds that a Fryx brother was at this show teasing expansions seems low.

It seems more likely this was a Stronghold rep talking and maybe it was a slip. But I am just speculating. I would like anything more concrete than a tweet as well.

Actually, Jacob told me at Spiel* that they're planning to release an expansion for TM once per year for the next few years. If their other real-life commitments allow for this pace, that is.

Clearly, these expansions are already thought out and were planned long before release of the main game. They aren't just a "cash grab" reaction to the big success TM is having. Quite excited to see what they have in store for us.


* so I'm assuming this isn't exactly classified information

It's been mentioned, probably several times in many ways by many actors involved, but "announced" seems a little bit more official to me than just being talking about future plans. That's what I meant at least... but they haven't been silent about the plans here either, so this is no news for the readers of the Terraforming Mars forum here.

We can confirm that we have more than 1 expansion under development. It looks very promising so far... :-)


The winner of the game played at Essen won a beta version of the first planned expansion. So, Jacob mentioned it. I can't recall how much he told about it, but I'm sure the Fryxes will be on here informing us fans (we're all fans, right? ) of what is known.

I've heard Fryxgames will be including more penguins in their coming products. whistle

Yes, we can confirm a penguin expansion, developed just for you, Love!

Our development of the expansions are semi-secret. The 4 different expansion ideas we currently have originated in the years following up to the release - so we never knew if they would ever see light of day. Now it looks promising with the positive response...

We can also confirm that the expansions will be separate releases, some of them small and some bigger adding several new elements/components/stuff/cards/boards or whatever it is in each case. The expansions are supposed to be separate modules that can be added to the game in any combination you like: "Today I woke up with an urge to try basic game together with V-expansion and M-expansion, but I will not play draft, or CE, or T-expansion this time..."

Our goal is to create INFINITE replayability, so that people will never ever have to buy another game ever again...

That sounds great!
(Give expansion!wow)
Considering the success of Terraforming Mars, and the fact that there are probably thousands hoping to get a copy but unable to find one right now, an expansion should be more than just a promising project
I am sure the current success of Terraforming Mars is something you can build on in the future.

Sooo when can we expect to see the first teasers?
