When...when when when, will TMG have the 5th player playing pieces available? I just would like some more news when their site will be up and when people like me, in the US, can purchase this and/or the Deluxe expansion.

I look forward to anyone's reply. Thank you.

TMG might release a 5th player expansion, although I doubt it, but they'll never re-release the deluxe edition of the base game again as it was a Kickstarter exclusive. In the meantime the DLP 5th player upgrade pack ships worldwide from their website

Edit: Silly me, I was wrong

TMG is currently working on the 5th player expansion now. There isn't a timeframe yet. Maybe Q4

Wish I would have known there wasn't 5th player pieces inside the box before spending $65 CAN of the Invasion expansion. There's really nothing on the box cover to warn you that there are not 5th player pieces inside. Selling a 5 player expansion without the pieces to play with 5 seems wrong. I kinda feel like I have been scammed. I can't really return it to the retailer because I opened it to look for the 5 player pieces. I guess my game group won't be playing this one anytime soon...

I went out there in search of experience, to taste and to touch and to feel as much, as a man can before he repents...

I'm really disappointed as well. The box contains some components for 5 player games, but not the pieces? How does that make sense.

Exactly our situation. We couldn't play.

This particular game group has been playing together for the last 15 years...this is the first time we've come across a literal truly broken game. Talk about a buzzkill. I only wish I could return the game, but instead I'll have to hunt down the pieces they couldn't be bothered to include.

I sent TMG an email asking about the 5th player expansion back in February:

Quote:
You're actually the first person to ask. The Invasion expansion can play up to 5 players, but the 5th player add-on is not included in the expansion box. Our Orleans Deluxe KS copies have the 5th player included, so those that have that copy of Orleans are able to play with the 5th players. We decided to print Invasion first before the 5th player add-on, so that we would have a larger variety of how to play Orleans. The good news is that we currently have the 5th player add-on in pre-manufacturing stages. We're hoping that it will be available later this year.

Good to know that there is some progress on this. Do we have any current updates on when we can order the 5th player expansion from TMG and/or when their site will be up to purchase the deluxe set?

This actually came up from a search:

Not sure how to get it, though.

That is the link. I just ordered it myself. Paid through Paypal. Pretty easy to do. Now I just have to wait for it to arrive. I've read that it is not the same thickness, and doesn't match exactly, but I'll live with that. I just want the game to allow for 5 players. Really bad thinking on their part.

I agree with others here about Invasion. I bought the damn expansion BECAUSE it advertises a 5th player! I'm on here because I was wondering if my box was missing stuff. Really, for the price they are charging for this expansion, there is no excuse to not include the 5th player materials. Absolutely, stupidly priced.

If the game wasn't so damned good, this experience would turn me off of this company all together.
