Hello,

My group loves Gizmos!

The replayability is a bit meh though, which is fine considering the pricetag. But honestly, if there was any small expansions with new cards, that would be fantastic. Like, a small deck of 50/100 cards in a small box, that would be swell.

I would love to see an expansion! Hopefully, one that adds more variety to players’ strategy. Any card that grants victory points simply by building a gizmo with a certain color is for sure the most desirable type of card. This has definitely made the game feel a little stale the more we play. So fingers crossed!

Would be great to have an expansion.

Some other ways to get VP besides building actions. Maybe a white colored marble that is less in quantity, but acts as a wildcard.

5th player components wouldn't hurt either at the same time.

A 5th player doesn't sound like a bad idea, but I think it would change the engine's progression. With 4 or less players, it means more lvl 1 cards to build up combos. With 5 players, the lvl 1 stack will get emptied faster, which will lead to more lvl 2 (and maybe 3) level cards bought.
Dunno if it's a good thing or not, but you can always try a 5th player by getting components from a 2nd box. Or just DIY meeple

I don't play with 5 players enough to warrant purchasing a second copy tbh, but that's not a bad idea for those that do. My group is usually either <4 or 6.

My main desires for an expansion isn't the 5th player, more that it's just a nice to have IF there was an expansion pack coming out.

Some objectives like in Barenpark would be nice. It would be an other way to make victory points.

What's Barenpark? In what form do those objectives come?

Barenpark is a tetris-like tiles laying game in a bears park theme. The objectives can be to be the first player to get 3 polar bears tiles for example. In Gizmos it could be to get 3 black gizmos or have 4 gizmos build cards or get 6 blue energy.

En passant, j'adore Barenpark. Les objectifs sont optionnels donc je ne les mets pas avec de nouveaux joueurs.

Ok I see, I like that idea very much. It would change a bit the balance of the game, but in a good way.

Actually it would be very easy to design fanmade objectives. I'll create a thread in the variant section to gather some ideas.

This is what I'm hoping for as well. Plus more Gizmos. Hopefully it's kept simple, though. That's the beauty of the game. I wouldn't want to see more and more mechanisms slapped on just for the sake of adding complexity. If I want complex, I have other games I can play.
