Since the other thread is taking a life of its own and people are slowly pulling bits of information out of me, I'll turn around and ask for your help.
I have about one billion expansion ideas, no seriously. I don't need more

Anything that's 95% happening (like a new faction) is not on the list. I only put things there that might be ... controversial

Poll
What do you think of these features in a hypothetical expansion?
  I'd love to be included I don't care about this I would never use this if it was included
Increased Player Interaction (mess with your opponent a bit)
More things to optimise through Time Travel (for example actions)
Certain basic actions being less available on some turns (with alternatives provided)
Turn order manipulation
5th player support (at the cost of some extra rules)
      381 answers
Poll created by TDaver


Lemme provide some context on "some actions being unavailable" option, as it seems to be getting less love.

Let's say option #2 introduces a way that let's you construct in the present, and then take the construct action in the future. But so far everyone has been happy to just construct in the present, and since the total number of resources aren't increasing by much, people won't be building that much. Therefore I'm thinking of making building in the present harder, but to make it more unpredictable it would make hiring or researching harder on some rounds (hence option #3).

I'd love to see more of anything for Anachrony. Only downside would be that nothing more can fit into the box with the Meeple Realty Insert holding everything already.

I'm surprised about the increased player interaction thing currently being pretty favored.

Guys, we're Eurogamers. Multiplayer solitaire 4 lyfe, amirite?



EDIT: But please, David, definitely more time travel stuff.

I'm not sure if this is something that you are already working on (hence it not being on the list) but I'd love more solo support. Some solo modules, or reworking of existing modules for solo would be amazing.

5th player is by far the biggest thing for me (6th would be nice too).

Pair those with new factions and I'm a happy camper. Those are the things I'd buy. The rest I may play with if they come in the box, but not what would sell it to me.

Presumably the expansion will show up some time in the past.

5th player would be awesome, along with more possible build actions.

Cries silently.

But I'm happy it's going to happen.

Plus in that time we have other great Turczi games to look forward to, Trickerion expansion and Perserverence.

If you do 5th player support do you think we can squeeze in a 6th too? Assuming this won't drastically increase play time either way

I'd assume they'd add 25% and 50% onto the game time compared to 4p - but I'm fine with that.

My favorite add-on would be a 5th (or even 6th) player add-on, no doubt! My gaming group has grown too large.

But even a "simpler" expansion like more leader options or end-game bonus scoring cards would be much loved.

Dude, how about sister-cities. Six players with alliances, or just straight team-based.
That would be a cool way to include so many players.
But he said he doesn't need more ideas. :/

I agree with some in the comments, no need for more players but definitely more factions. I like the idea of player interaction but it needs to be done with some finess, which I’m certain Mindclash can handle (and if not the player interactive components can just be removed. Love the game, please add more to it

Some player interaction would be great. Although the rest of the game is amazing, the feeling of solo multiplayer is too overwhelming at times
