I tried going to the website, but that domain is up for renewal. I tried PMing Martyn, but no response yet. Is this game too old to find the expansions?

The expansion and its rules -- the Signalpost -- is only available as a download.

Given the circumstances, have you tried using The Internet Archive's The Wayback Machine to retrieve the files?

It looks as if the last time the site was crawled was in 2014 and not all of the pages were crawled, but it's worth a shot.

Barring that, perhaps propose a trade with someone who has the rules and extra tiles if Martyn F is unresponsive.

Good luck!

ETA: Grammar!

32.50? That's pretty expensive for the components that come in that box. Shipping makes it even more expensive.

I guess it's a judgement call. I've seen a lot of games with a ton of blingy components whose actual game was terrible. The other side of the coin is a game that seem overpriced based solely on the components. But the game itself is easily worth the money to me.

In the end, if you need to feel like you're getting a lot of "stuff" to justify a purchase price, then that's fine. But I see people spend far more than $32.50 on a single card for a CCG.

If you're hoping to find a used copy for $15.00 with free shipping you just might have to skip Limes.

Rather than go down the whether the raw materials in a game are 'worth' the cost of the game path, I offer you this:

If you plan to play solo, split the game with someone. You need exactly half the parts per player.

Many $$ saved.

I already own a copy which I got for much less within the last year. I don't expect to pay $15, but $45ish (not $32.50) is quite a lot.

For $32.00 I wanted to try it. It looked like a game a friend and I would enjoy. And we do. I would pay $45.00 now that I know we'll get a lot of plays out of it. For me I've always justified a games price. Y how much table time it gets. Limes was/is worth it to me. It I can see how others might scoff at it due to it's relatively sparse contents.

If it was more popular I imagine it would be cheaper and easy to find. But, thats gaming for ya.

There was a fault with the automatic renewal of my certificate (or something like that).

You can find all downloads again at:

That's about 1.00 less than I paid at game surplus. Even used it's not much cheaper. Not sure he w much cheaper the poster expects to find it for. Ah well, it'll be there for the next person.

Anyone printed these expansions? How did you do so? Would love to have them printed on material that resembles the game cards, or even professionally but can't find anywhere that does the same square sizes.

Have you tried a print shop and have them print the files at thicker (glossy) paper? (And actual size)

Not yet Martyn, was hoping to manage it using my home printer or an easy system like Artscow. But yes good call. My guess though is I could print using similar paper at home? I have a Canon Pixma, which prints good quality photos so assume it must be about possible!
