Great. Maybe that means they'll actually successfully reprint the original.

Exciting, indeed! Having recently "discovered" the game on BGG@SEA last month, it immediately popped to the top of my "MUST GET" list. A reprint definitely gets a thumbsup from me!

This is great news. Marco Polo is one of my favorite games. I would prefer a new map (maybe focussing on China, introducing the Great Wall as a new element) instead of new characters (if we can't have both ), since there were already four new characters in the mini-expansion.

Huh I never even considered this game getting a full expansion. I'm interested to see what they have cooking.

I should clarify, btw, that I'm irked at Z-Man, not HiG.

I'm getting >< close to ordering it from them straight up since the game is language independent...

Looking forward to seeing what an expansion might bring. Anyone want to theorize?

We already did "more characters" and "more contracts" with the mini-expansion. New map that you can mix & match characters on?

A new map and more characters would be nice, but I would also like to see

-A new separate market board, maybe one that makes use of oases. Or action spaces belonging to players that others can use (similar to buildings in Lords of Waterdeep)

-Some sort of card mechanic? Set collection or fulfilling a condition

-Purple dice. I don't know what for, but I want more dice!

Purple dice...for a fifth player?

A new map, some more city tiles?

I think the variety of the existing contracts and city bonus tiles are sufficient for more replays than I could imagine, having a variety of maps would be nice to shake things up a little.

Unless an extra board is added with more places to put your dice, I think four players is crowded enough on this board.

I'm with Stuart...there is enough variety in the city cards and contracts, especially with the mini expansion that is already available. Just give us a double-sided map for more to explore.

Maybe the goal cards for the new maps could have special powers on them instead of points. When a player completes a goal, he/she reveals the completed card and gains the bonus ability for the rest of the game.

I rather like the idea of a bonus ability to comes along later in the game and/or changes as the game goes on.

My sources have assured me that the expansion will indeed include components and rules for a 5th player ninja

I wouldn't mind having the ability to add a 5th player. More spots on the map to place dice would be needed. Spots to place dice of a certain sequence(1-3-6 or three of a kind for example) to gain victory points or placing one die and using 1 or 2 resources for VP's. How about income spaces? I spend a 6 to gain 10 coin immediately. If I decide to leave the die there for next turn I gain my income of 10 coin but now only have 4 dice to use that turn. Having a trading post space where you can convert excess resources for resources you need could be useful. Just thinking out loud. I've really enjoyed playing this game!

This was my first thought, I've been trying to get the base game for 6 months.

Our group has mentioned things like that before. No offense, but almost all of your examples are already on some of the city cards. One of the great things about this game is having to evaluate what action options are available from one game to the next. It would make the game less interesting if we could do everything we want each time we play. I love how sometimes there are good options for getting money or for extra ways to travel, while other times we don't have that.

I just picked a base copy up from www.Amazon.de last month for $60.
