I know some of us are not only craving for a decent expansion but also a bit worried.

For this being a FFG published game, there sure is a lack of expansions happening as of late.

I recommend we show our support and our concern for Runebound 3rd Ed by posting in FFG official forums.

That is bound to get more attention than to keep posting in the BGG forums, as most likely FFG notices the amount of traffic and posts of each game's forums.

FFG couldn't care less about forums. I seriously doubt they ever read them, even their own.

Nah, we now that they read the forums for certain. They simply don't post, which is something I can understand

They read forums, but they always seem to have their own data coming from "their own sources" that always overrides what we write on forums. So yeah, I can understand why there's frustration going on about it.

We should all buy extra copies of the game!

I've thought about that just to get more of the terrain dice. Passing them around a 4-player table is a bit inconvenient.

I wish they would just sell the stickers. You can buy blank dice on the internet. It would probably be cheaper.

Forums data - people who have purchased the items and feel strongly enough to go online and post.

Sales data - those people, plus the vast majority who don't do those things.

The data they'd get from the forums, as far as desire to purchase more, is redundant.

That's why there's no point in writing anything. What they know they already know. Writing isn't going to change one bit. As always, vote with wallet.

How?

Wait until there are X number of expansions before buying into the base game? If everybody does that FFG will be unlikely to make expansions.

Buy multiple copies of the base game to encourage FFG to make expansions?

Wait for this to be replaced by the star wars equivalent?

StarBound!

Isn't this FFG's new MO? It's selling okay but we are sure it will be 10x the hit if we release in the star wars universe!

Traffic data is always taken into account. Imagine having a game where there are 25% more positive posts than your most popular titles. " Hmmmm maybe that game has a bigger impact on the board gaming community than our sales numbers projected and people actually like it. We should continue building on this title"

You think they are going to make a sequel to No Mans Sky based on their high sales number? F no. The community spoke out, and now it's labeled as one of the biggest failures in video game history.

No, but we can make sure we're all buying the other content.

And yet, they keep letting Snyder make movies in the DC universe.

After my first game, I imagine it is not so easy to make new scenarios for this game. There is quite a lot of things that must stay balanced.

The so-called "board game community" is just a percentage of their sales.

If it sold well, then I'm 100% certain there will be a new one. It's only logical.
