Are actually going to be allowed to add the expansions to the DB this year before the day they supposedly release?

I think I saw one or two in the pending submission queue, but most of them aren't in there yet. Need some folks to start submitting them before first

I took a closer look:
3 are pending
1 is already in the database.
I've submitted 13 entries tonight.
So that should leave 8. I can try to submit those tomorrow unless someone gets to it beforehand

Details in spoilers (just in case) below

I've added the remaining promos to the database so they are all now awaiting approval

No idea if the admins will approve them soon or wait until after the 'official' release of each promo.

I'm hoping they go ahead and add them to the database soon so it's easier to trade/sell/add them to our collection

Yeah. Last year was VERY annoying.

If people don't want to know about them stay off the forums for this item. lol.

I know the feeling. I have them sitting my desk but eventually I need to put them with their respective games.

I have at least a dozen or so that I would put up for traded and in the BGG marketplace if they had their own listing. Too confusing for me bunching all into one entry for the calendar

PS: I also added the remaining expansions for those games in the Deutscher Spielepreis 2016 Goodie Box. Those too are pending approval

10 of them were approved today.
One of them wasn't added to the contains/contained in section so I submitted a correction for that one

Hopefully the remaining ones get approved in the next batch

Update:
2 more were approved today

The submission for the one that wasn't marked as contained in still has not been approved

The one that already existed in the database hasn't had it's correction entry to add the contained in either

Side note - none of the entries for Deutscher Spielepreis 2016 Goodie Box have been approved either so hopefully you aren't waiting on those too

Technically 19 I think.
Zooloretto: Christmas Gift and Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island – Runch Mini Expansion are in the database but aren't listed in the contains section.

I submitted a correction fixing this a few days ago but it hasn't been approved

Thanks - this one has been approved

On another note, two items are accessories. I've never checked to see if accessories can be linked to the contains section

No, I don't think so; different object types.

So we are up to 20.

The missing 4:
West of Africa: Wineries - submission pending approval
Camel Up Cards: Catch Up Trophies - submission pending approval
King of New York - accessory so it won't be in the contains section
Quadropolis - accessory so it won't be in the contains section

Someone else submitted the one for King of New York which was approved.
I'm hesitant to send in an edit because the way I understand it, it's an accessory (at least a dozen or so other characters are in the accessories) but got approved as a board game

That is bonkers. The characters should be expansions. If the characters were a different sculpt/figure etc, then that would be an accessory.

I had a similar conversation with an admin about this, regarding the resin Colt Express replacement figures.

The DB is open for suggested edit, I'd be all for making all the new characters expansion types.

The way it was explained to me is if it offered nothing towards game play, it is an accessory. But I really have no idea anymore.

I'm just going based on the fact there's 7 King of New York/Tokyo characters already under accessory and none (except the one in question) under board games.

Of course there's another item that is in the database as an accessory and as a board game so maybe even the admins aren't sure anymore either

The entire organization system needs redone. All expansions for expansions should still be related to the base game for example. Many times I have found they're not.

BGG needs an overarching 'family'/'series' category like VGG/RPGG do.

It's not as simple as that. The Advent Calendar expansions appear if you search for the base game. Spoilers are not restricted to this item.

Christmas is ruined!

If you don't want to know what happened on last night's episode of whatever show.. stay off social media!!

That being said you know what games the expansions are for. It has them pictured on the back of the calendar box. Don't search the forums for them then.

I understand that 2 of the items were not mini-expansions but accessories. I found Quadropolis: Christmas Tiles.
But I can't find the one for King of Tokyo.
Does it need to be added to the database?

Also Quadropolis: Christmas Tiles does not appear to be linked to the Brettspiel Adventskalender 2016 in any way. Is there not a way to show that it is included in the box?

Kookie for King of NY/Tokyo is also an accessory. I sure wish the boardgame search included accessories as a default.

I know it is an accessory but I can't find it in the database. Link?

Edit: Is this it? King of Tokyo/King of New York: Kookie
I though it was Gigazaur pictured in the "rules" on the frosted site.
