I saw a second expansion was in the works already (Armada). Does anyone know if this is a new wonder, cards, or what it is about?

thanks

Already, already, it takes some time to design a game, the work started as soon as Leaders was finished in fact
It's all W.I.P but there will be new cards for sure and one wonder (maybe two)... That's all I can tell for now

Glad to hear that.
I'm guessing the wonder would be one of the ancient Greek city-states if the title of the second expansion is 'Armada'.

Not for Essen, no. It takes some time to make things well
Armada is a working title, BTW..

Really?! I thought 'Armada' would more likely refer to ships, i.e. following from the Spanish.

Did 'Armada' mean something to Ancient Greece too?

Well, the term Armada is really the spanish naval fleet isn't it? In Peloponnesian War the city-states used their feet a lot beacuse it really was the easiest way to get around. I imagine that's where the link is.

Yes, take you time a make the expansion good - I would like that.

The Ulysses expansion could be another cool sounding name - especially if the new Wonder where to be Acropolis.

I'm going to guess a secondary, naval combat system between specific city states that mounted fleets. They would not necessarily be conducted between adjacent seats but v. selected, across the table rivals. Perhaps some trading components too

That would include Carthage, Rome, Persia, Greece and Egypt.

Anyone up for a betting pool? I bid two prestige points. cool

PS. And while the project name is called Armada... I vote for "Trireme" as the final name for the expansion.

Two new wonders would be great. I can think of the Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal, to represent the Chinese and Indian civilizations, but there are certainly other candidates as well

Nice title proposition ! This would indeed make more sense !

As for your guesses, these would indeed make the game more interactive and tensed... il like your ideas

Taj Mahal is a impressive wonder. I have nothing against it, but it was build in the mid 1600s, so a really don't think that it has a place in a game about ancient civilizations.
