I know a lot of people have been praying for expansions for Uwe's other games like Ora et Labora, Caverna, etc. (I guess Fields of Arle is actually getting one soon?). I've heard that Uwe has wanted to expand some of these but there hasn't been enough demand. I'm wondering if the Agricola style occupation decks of AFFO will make this game easier/cheaper to expand. I'm only now cracking open the C deck and plan to play a few games of C only before mixing them all together, but based on how much I've played this already, I'm looking forward to the possibility of adding other decks later.

Has anyone heard if there are plans for more occupation decks or have any speculation on what kind of sales the base game would have to make in order for expansion decks to be developed?

Rather than expanding the game by other decks, I prefer expansions that
- includes other Islands (particularly for games with more players)
- include other houses (with different interior and bonuses)
- include other actions
- include options to make the animal actions more valuable/profitable (of course I can be mistaken [I played the game only 15-20 times with an average score of only about 110], but for me the animal actions work less well than the other actions)

But what a great game it already is! :-)

The first expansion (-> Norway) will come in autum 2017 to the fairy in Essen (Germany). We are developping it with new pieces (grey-pieces, pigs, horses,...), new islands (and cities with harbours), new buildings and a renewed plan with a special backside-use for 1-3 players. There will come new action options (like butchering animals and a new column for the last action) and variants (like a faster version without card-effects and a competitive element). More details and informations will come later.
But there will be no new cards in the first expansion (200 cards in the basic game is vast enough for the moment). The ideas would be enough for also a second and third expansion (new homeplan, 5th player, pushstart with 5 rounds, swedish expansion to the east,...), but that depends on the number of interested fans and their wishes then too ;-)

I love the variety and replayability the cards generate. So, I may not play the variant much, even though a faster game sounds nice.

Everything else sounds good though!

Same here. Let there be expansions!
(for Arle and Odin, most of all - and as many as possible! OK, you may stop after the 8th or 10th expansion / game )

New buildings would be excellent, also new actionssurprise. I only hope all of these new materials will come for all countries.

If there is going to be a new action board I hope some consideration is made to making it larger! The current spots are quite hard to see with more than 2 players.

Maybe you can visit foreign cities with certain types of boats and you could have access to different small action boards depending on where you are?

Are there any news about the expansion ? AFFO is my favorite game and for me, the expansion is an autobuy.

If it's slated for an autumn 2017 release I'm guessing we should start to hear a little bit more about it over the course of the summer.

Can't wait! Absolute autobuy.

There will be an expansion, but unfortunately we won't be able to get it out this year. I'm afraid you'll have to be patient.
But there might be an mini expansion in autumn to help you with that ninja

I really hope the mini-expansion is available through the BGG store. Terra Mystica and Caverna mini-expansions haven't been the easiest to get a hold of if you weren't paying attention at the right moment.

Wohoo! A mini expansion is better than no expansion!
I guess you are busy enough with Gaia Project, 3 player expansion for FoA and Das Tiefe Land anyway.

Is it the promo island https://boardgamegeek.com/article/25292500#25292500 , which is now upgraded to a mini expansion?

There will be a mini expansion featuring two new islands. No language skills needed to play them.

Do they replace an existing one or are they in addition?
