Just wondering when the 6th module will be released for the 1st edition, or if it has been abandoned.

I was wondering the same thing. I will not buy the complete game for one module. But the module for 1st edition is an instant buy for me

While it was mentioned some time ago in previews of the reprint I expect this was abandoned.

I expect that we'll have a community made version soon enough.

I really hope that they don't abandon this. Why should they? Ok, maybe they won't sell a billion, but it shouldn't be much work (except some artwork) and at least I would pay money for that

I would also take the 6th module from the second edition, if they release it separately. Of course, this wouldn't be my favorite solution. Do you think that they would cover the fields in the first edition nicely?

I also heard that they are going to do it. Abandoning it would be an absolute no go in my opinion!! Whom to blame? Stratelibri?

This isn't sour grapes or anything, but it looks like a dumb module to me anyway.

That would a shame given what they said back in 2016

I contacted Z-man customer service to inquire about separate availability of the expansion. They asked me for the links to the quotes from the designers, and I'm waiting to get another response back from them.

I'll post an update here when I find out more.

If you still need it. One from each of the designers

From Andrea Chiarvesio (Tanis)

We, the designers of Kingsburg, explicitely asked that it was possible to purchase the Alternate Advisor Rewards module on its own without buying the second edition of the game, as a way to respect people that purchased the first edition.

So, I truly hope it will be as such...



This one is from the other designer, Luca Iennaco (Luke the Flaming)
https://boardgamegeek.com/article/22839588#22839588
Luke the Flaming wrote:


The rights to publish the game and the rights to use the old artwork belong to different people. They did not reach an agreement.
The publisher thus had two options: no reprint or new artwork.
It it NOT intended as an "improvement" (I love the old artwork as well), but as a necessity to avoid OOP status forever.

If you already own the game, no one is trying to convince you to buy it again (in fact, we insisted to have a "6th module only" option to underline that you do not need to buy it all again).
This new edition is intended for people that do not own the game yet (but would like to).

Thanks! I couldn't find the quote from Luca, so I emailed that to them as well.

I had also (ironically) found this quote on the Z-man games website: https://www.zmangames.com/en/news/2017/11/9/a-qa-with-the-de...

Quote:
Our Italian publisher approached us with the opportunity to create a new version combining the base game with the expansion, and we of course agreed also to develop a new expansion module for the game, on the condition that it would have been sold separately, for people who already own the previous version.


We'll see what their response is.

Thank you for the information. We will be looking into this however it may take some time to confirm information and we apologize for the delay. We will message you when we have an answer for you.


My guess is that this fell through the cracks and that they don't have immedicate plans to release it separately. Hopefully, they will make the decision to release it separately based on the comments from Luca and Andrea. I'll update this when I hear more.

For now, I'm not going to buy the new version in the hopes that the expansion will be available separately. I really don't care if the art doesn't match as long as I have the opportunity to use it in games.

That certainly sounds like they are trying to play catch up on this but I'm not complaining as it seems to confirm that something will come of it.
