I've noticed pictures and comments involving sets of black and white pieces on here. Where the heck are people getting these from? Just buying an extra set and painting them?



Just wondering

Those are the 6th player expansions. I believe the first one produced was white plastic, then the second one was black plastic. Here is a link to Funagain's purchase pages (but they are out of them right now):

My FLGS still has some of the black plastic copies in stock.
(And now they are sold out after I sent several people their way... sorry!)

Didn't know what to spend all this sweet GG on, so I bought the overtext.

Played this game for the first time last night. What a blast. Really enjoyed it. Can't believe I let it gather dust for a year before finally playing it.

Now I'd love to have a 6th player set. Figures I waited so long that I missed the boat, can't imagine they'd do another production run.

From now on I'm reading the rules and playing the games when I buy them

Once upon a time, you could order the black ones from Eagle games directly (it looks like you can only order replacements now).

The white ones were available as some sort of promotion IIRC - like for folks that pre-ordered.

10 bucks isn't bad. Maybe I'll get the blue ones and take a can of primer to them. Was thinking about doing a little bit of painting anyways.

Originally, the black pieces were a pre-order bonus to North American buyers, and the white pieces for U.K. (maybe all of Europe) buyers.

At times, they were available to purchase separately from Eagle Games, but they have been out of stock for a while.

If we're fortunate, they may make more of the color that will be used with the expansion that's supposed to come out this summer. Whatever you do, make sure it's the same color as the expansion (can't recall what color that was anymore - should be in one of the threads underneath the entry for the expansion).

The new expansion color is going to be purple according to Drover. Unfortunate. I wanted black.

I got my black pieces at Essen 2008 for 7 euros (about 10 dollars).

I bought a yellow set from Eaglegames for $9.50 and spraypainted it white. When they make an expansion, I can either spraypaint the expansion pieces white or repaint the white pieces purple.
