Printing trying for the 2nd Quarter of 2018.

I'm glad Andrew's break from college gave Volko and him time to develop this to the point where they feel almost ready to playtest it. The update reads:

Quote:
Andrew and I had the chance this summer for some final tuning before beta test of our Falling Sky expansion that expands the game with a prequel to cover the whole period of the Gallic Wars. The pre-Vercingetorix Arverni are now behaving as we like, and we think we have a tight, right-into-the-action contest from 58BC on.

HELP WANTED: We are looking for a few willing play testers who know Falling Sky and would like to try out Ariovistus. You would need to be willing to assemble a test kit to augment your Falling Sky set with added cards, forces pieces, markers, and charts. If interested, please let me know at [Read email at GMT website]. Thanks! - Volko


This is the first thing I P500'd. I have since P500'd another thing's 2nd Edition, but I'm really looking forward to this! I can't wait for some long winter evenings continuing to dig into the base game, and the German expansion will clearly get one more of my regular group of gamers into this game deeper. He loves playing the Germans in any game! Hopefully, this will mean this game can stave off the recent cult-of-the-new focus of my game group, which I have mostly ignored to sit off in a corner playing older games that I enjoy.

Though the new Player Faction and scenarios are interesting, I'm most looking forwards to the long game, stringing the expansion and original game together in a campaign.

Hi Jonathan!

For anyone interested, if you ordered Second Edition Falling Sky, it comes with the thicker mats and the improved Non-players, as well as the handful of card text changes. You do not need Ariovistus for any of that, only if you want the added Germanic player Faction, deck, Celtic Tribes non-player fifth Faction, and the scenarios that use them.

Enjoy!
Volko
