Given the reprint and overhaul of the base game at the end of last year. Is their any official confirmation that this expansion will get similar treatment?

I'm aware that technically the old/new are compatable. But would rather wait if I know a new version is on the horizon

Portal Games version of HMS Beagle will be available, when contract with ZMan Games expire.

Portal Games version will be very similiar to ZMAN edition which is based on Portal Games edition anyway

Sounds like an Inception of publishing

Will there be any meaningful changes in the 2nd edition (component upgrades, extra scenarios, etc.)?

Have Voyages now but if the 2nd edition will be better, I'll trade mine away and picked it back up later (like I did my copy of base Robinson Crusoe).

Except Portal used better thicker and better card stock.

Mm, not really. I bought the new edition as upgrade and merged the copies to get the best of both worlds and thickness was the same.

No, talking about the player boards. .The original were cardstock, new ones are thick as tiles. Also the new discovery tokens have text too which is nice.

That is the only difference that the player sheets are now boards, cardboard itself is not thicker in the new edition compared to ZMan. But I still use the original sheets due to having expansion characters and promo sheets there added in. At least until those get upgraded to cardboard as well.

Why are you arguing about this, I own both version and there are numerous variances and differences. People asked so I am telling them..

When you do reprint it please consider keeping the book look. I love the new edition, however the box is much smaller and I love the insert and with the insert in the box it is pretty tight after all the cards are sleeved. I would have to keep them separate and the book would be so cool sitting on the shelf and when I brought it out.
Thanks for all you do. Amazing game!!!

Hi guys, BIG fan of Robinson Crusoe; would much rather my money went directly to Portal Games.

Does anybody have any idea roughly when the Beagle contract will end with Z-Man games so that Portal can produce this expansion?

Is there any information to be found about whether we might get more playable expansions for RC? (I only ask because Voyage of the Beagle is noted as being 'volume one').

Many thanks for all your help!

I have no inside info to back up my guess, but I'm thinking since Portal's RC was released about 4 yrs after the Zman version, VotB may follow a similar 4 yr deal. If so, we'll see it announced/released very late 2017 or early 2018.

Any news/rumours on this. Am very tempted to get the z-man edition, unless I know a v2 is due real soon.

Edit: So I just saw an update from Ignacy himself during an AMA.
Quote:
As far as I remember we will have rights back to HMS Beagle in 2019. As for the next campaign, I hope to have it ready in 2018.

So no new edition until 2019 at the earliest, but at least we can expect a new campaign next year.

I might just get the z-man edition for now. I can always upgrade it in two years if I feel the need.
