I am pleased to announce that Alien Frontiers' first expansion, Factions, has just been launched on Kickstarter.com

http://kck.st/qxaBYK

If AF:F reaches the funding goal by noon PDT on October 2nd, the files will be delivered to the printer by October 15th and AF:F will be scheduled for release in March 2012.

I will be posting the AF:F rules on the Kickstarter page and here on BGG by the weekend.

I want to express my gratitude for all of the support the BGg community has given to Alien Frontiers since the first Kickstarter campaign launched in April 2010. I hope you will be pleased by the new developments that Factions brings to the Alien Frontiers game.

Having done some play testing on the AF:F expansion I can say that I really like what it does with the game. The faction powers are varied and interesting and both the exclusive powers and the docking locations have their uses throughout the game. The new alien tech is good and the addition of the Agendas adds extra bite and emphasis to the area control aspect of the game, whilst allowing the chance to be opportunistic and cash them in for a smaller VP bonus if you're losing out on the area control side. Overall the whole thing just hangs together well. It changes the game up in refreshing ways without losing the core of what makes AF such a fun, re-playable game. Plus of course it makes it a 5 player game, which is always very useful!

Basically if you like AF then you should be backing this expansion on kickstarter. Seriously, go and do it now!

The "Hidden Agenda" expansion seems to lessen the Kingmaker problem (the only little flaw this game has).

I'm in and I still don't have my own copy of the base game yet.
But I refuse to miss out on the Alien Frontiers awesomeness like I did last time.

FYI, the prototype rules for AF:Factions have been posted on the Kickstarter page.

http://kck.st/qxaBYK

or you can access them directly, here...

Please remember, these are the prototype rules. We still need to flesh out all the rules examples and Karim has to work his design magic on them.

Any chance that you could consider adding more purple colony tokens to make that colour usable in games with less than 5 players?

With 6 colonies, purple would be useable in 4 and 5 player games...but yes, we could easily increase it to a full compliment of colony tokens so purple could be played at any level.

I'd also like this. It's always a good thing if you can chose which color to play.
