“Robinson Crusoe is the second big expansion for Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island. Unlike its predecessor, it not only includes the campaign (titled The Lost City of Z), where you follow great explorer, Lieutenant Colonel Percy Fawcett, but also a full set of rules and components that can be played with the base game of Robinson Crusoe!

Robinson Crusoe: Mystery Tales introduces 10 new characters, new deck of Event cards, 3 new decks of Adventure cards, new Beast cards, new Mystery cards and new mechanism of Sanity that you can use in the base game of Robinson Crusoe to change it into a game of dreadful stories! Additionally, the expansion includes five missions that form a long and epic campaign: The Lost City of Z!

▪ Epic campaign: The Lost City of Z
▪ New decks of cards, completely compatible with previous scenarios
▪ New horror and sanity mechanism!
Release date: Q4 2018”



Hoping this is compatible with the old editions!

Awesome news. I've been hoping for a new expansion. Glad Portal is going back to this title.

Re: New(?) details from official Portal Newsletter
Will it have to be kickstarted first?
I'm in either way.

Re: New(?) details from official Portal Newsletter
This looks awesome!
Can't wait for it to come out! This combines my favorite co-op board game of all time w/ a mechanism I find very intriguing from games with a certain author reference (i.e. H.P. Lovecraft). The new mechanics involving horror and sanity sound very interesting... If the idea of having to deal with food, shelter, morale, time, and weather wasn't enough... lets add your characters mental well-being as well! The cursed island is becoming more and more brutal as the years go on... IT'S EVOLVING!!!

New name, new cover. Looks like they did away with the 'book' style box that was initially shown. Although i like the new cover, which fits nicely with the second edition box, it does mean that the 'Voyage of the Beagle' box will stand out even more now.

If they're not trying to turn Robinson into First Martians, I'm all in.

PS. I don't thing there will be a kickstarter, they did a kickstarter-like pre-order system for First Martians, maybe they'll go that route.

Bruno,
I want to say that portal is planning on reprinting voyage of the beagle at some point down the line as well... Not sure that rumor is true or not.

I'm sure at some point we will see a reprint of Voyage of the beagle with matching cover art, once the rights to the expansion pass back to them.

Ignacy mentioned they plan to reprint VOtB when they get the rights back in 2019.

I dreaded reading the article that it talks about the app somewhere. But it didn't! App was a huge reason First Martians felt less immersive, it just didn't work as well as apps do in XCOM or Alchemists or This War of Mine.

Very excited about this expansion!

Wow, that sounds amazing! It's great that apart from campaign they will expand a base game as well.

I think it's a smart move... the Lost City of Z, though technically a highly thematic name, on the shelves is a little bit confusing -- this broader more generic thematic approach seems like a good spin.

It was just a Pokémon joke... cry

And why do you think The Lost City Of Z is a confusing title?

I think they've changed title because campaign Lost City of Z is now only a part of expansion.

Antoine - I enjoyed your Pokemon reference .
Aleksander - I agree... The Lost City of Z will be the campaign for the game it sounds like however, it sounds like we'll be able to utilize some of the changes/rules from this campaign in the base game as well so... rather than Portal saying, "this is The Lost City of Z campaign" they are saying "Here's the Mystery Tales expansion that you can use to add stuff to the base game... and btw, there's a campaign called The Lost City of Z!"

I enjoy the route I think they're going with this as the expansion has more replay-ability outside the 'Lost City of Z' campaign... I haven't played Voyage of the Beagle yet but I imagine most of the stuff in that campaign can't really be incorporated into the base game except for things like the crew cards, the missionary character, etc. This one seems like its adding actual, additional rules, mechanics, etc.

Just my thoughts (and hopes)...

Yep!
There is really no difference in the old and new editions (game play is the same). They are the SAME game w/ a few minor visual and symbolical tweaks. I think people get caught up on the "rules change" of the new edition however, it is more of a re-wording & tidying than an actual change in the rules.

That being said... I like to be matchy-matchy with my games so, if you are OCD like I am, I'd recommend picking up the latest edition for the new expansion for, if nothing else, "box cover cohesiveness" (<-- Is this even a thing?!?! lol). I'm still waiting for VoTB to be reprinted so I can purchase that to add to the collection... that's how OCD I am about matching old/new versions (same thing as pandemic... it works but may not match very well).

Can't Wait!!!

This system is so fun and immersive that it's the only game that I will auto buy expansions for without waiting for reviews.

but, really hope this doesn't mean that Stronghold: Undead will be put on hold for the remainder of the year. I've been waiting for that for a while. You can do it Ignacy! Thank you for your delightful designs.

Well,Ignacy avoided wisely the Cthulhu ambientation, but I am pretty sure that when this expansion will came out, it will be a strong base for a ton of Cthulhu fan-made expansions!

Pretty sure...

At least one...since I will try to do it by myself... whistle
