Am I the only person wondering if a certain grumpy Elder is going to deliver us a print n play promo this year?

We print and play them every year. And we only play the micro expansions during holidays and special occasions. My kids last talked me into using the rockets expansion during the July 1st - July 4th Holidays. Can't wait to see what's popping out this year. Maybe it will tie in to the new edition?

Nope, I love them!

Only problem is they always drop so late that I'm rushing to get them printed at the local print shop before they close for the year.

Absolutely not! Rockets of celebration, gift from the elders and minions of the solstice get regular playtime in our party.
We are nowadays trying a variant where we don’t put roc or mots on the rounds track but did a blank techtile in the techbag, so nobody knows if and when they come out...

Is there an official channel where the release of the holiday special is announced or should we just keep checking the forum here on big?

Who knows!? We may not even get one this year. They have been busy working on the 2nd ed...

The others all have a page under expansions.

I'm surprised when people say they only play them during the holidays. I consider the rockets and minions to be essential for balance or helping the underdog. The Anticipation of the Elders is definitely a catch up mechanic and it'll see play in all my games.

Happy Holidays!

Assuming there will be one this Christmas, it'll show up in the list or recent threads for the base hand, right? Or where/how are they usually published first?

Fingers crossed!

Sincere apologies! I have to confess we could not find time to do a proper Holiday special this year, even though we wanted to.. I hope the upcoming 2nd edition will make up for it (I'm pretty excited about it myself)!

Gotcha covered.

It's not official, and it's not even here yet. It's been delayed.

Eclipse Holiday Special 2017 (Unofficial)

Happy New Year everyone!
