So I just saw that there were 6 new expansions available for pre-order.
Agricola Game Expansion: Red
Agricola Game Expansion: White
Agricola Game Expansion: Green
Agricola Game Expansion: Purple
Agricola Game Expansion: Yellow
(BGG is missing "White")

Not sure why Agricola needs minis but at $24.99 a piece that is nearly $150.00.

Now I know this are not necessary but what irks me is each on of these has 20 cards as well. So there is no way to get these cards without by the minis. I dig this game I just don't need minis for it.

Will these cards be available without the minis in the future?

I'll go out on a limb and guess that these sets are aimed strictly at the hardcore collectors; no one else is going to pay that kind of money to enhance a printing intended for limited yearly play. If they're smart, they'll eventually release the cards separately somewhere down the road.

I bought two complete (all 6) extra sets of these. Why? Because they will run out and will eventually become very desirable.

I firmly believe these will be collectors items at some point and I'm willing to wait it out

Good luck with that.

I agree. It's a gamble

Miniature Market has a preorder. I bought them from there. I originally bought 3 sets of six each for resale purposes. However, I contacted WizKidz last week and they won't give me a release date. So, I got my money back for two of the sets. I'll wait it out and see about the third one.
