G'Day Phil,

I am really looking forward to getting this game. Your website mentions an expansion - I was wondering what this included?

Also - will High Frontier follow Orgins in having a mounted board and other similar components, or will it have similiar production values to American Megafauna? Not that I mind - I have all these games regardless! And High Frontier has a theme that I really love - (as did AM and Origins mind you!)

Cheers,

Giles.

In answer to my own question (I asked as my work blocked access to the SM site):


From the Sierra Madre website:

Quote:
Expansion to the space exploration game HIGH FRONTIER, adds a fifth player (the UN), and adds an extension to the map that includes Jupiter, Saturn, main belt comets, centaurs, and Trojan asteroids. The expanded rules include slingshots, radiation belts, piracy, combat, solar flares, and space politics and governments. There are also 48 new patent cards, representing reactors, generators, and radiators. The expanded scenarios include alien invasions, the solitaire game, and two short games.



This expansion will be released in October of 2010.




I am still interested to know what sort of pieces will be present in the game... it looks really interesting!

Cheers,

Giles.

The design is now about set. The components will be plastic: rocketships, cylinders to show tanks of water, disks to indicate ship acceleration and mining claims, cubes with spherical dome to indicate extraterrestrial factories. The two delta-v maps will be mounted. The basic map includes the planets out to Ceres, and the expanded map out to Saturn and Halley's comet. The cards represent rocket part blueprints. Each will have a scientific description in the rules as well. I hope this answers your question.

Hello Pawel, I hope to have High Frontier preorders at my site www.sierramadregames.com in July, I will likely offer a big idsocunt to those who order the game and its expansion together. I am still haggling out fullfillment details for the game, so the final price can be set.
