I have just spotted the image of this mini-expansion and I'm just curious to know... everything about it!

When? Where? (Essen, of course)
Multilingual?
Availability other then Essen?
Rules?
Components?

I really can't wait!

And can we get a copy if we are unable to attend Essen?

Will this "expansion" be JUST rules, or will it have components as well? If it's just rules, would it be legal if someone posted them here?

Well, the new image does indicate multilingual (at least German and English). There seem to be about 12 cardboard chits that can be used to block empty routes. So, at least know there'll be *some* components.

The rules are a revised version of the 'Sabotage' rules from Airlines. There were components for playing the Sabotage rule, and so I think we will be seeing components, in the form of cardboard chits (as mentioned above), for this expansion as well.

I have uploaded a summary of the rules for Flight Bans to the files section pending approval.

Any markers can be used.

In the man time:

FLIGHT BAN RULES SUMMARY (English)

All rules of the original game apply with following changes:

Game Setup
Depending on the number of players taking part each of them receives the following number of flight ban markers:

2 or 3 Players = 4 markers
4 Players = 3 markers
5 Players =2 markers

Scoring
Immediately after the 1st and 2nd scoring rounds follows a flight ban phase of 2 rounds.

• In turn order, starting with the player with the scoring card, each player may place 1 flight ban marker or pass.
• This marker blocks that route license until the end of the game.
• Markers cannot be placed if it would occupy the last license available on a route.
• If a player passes during the 1st round, they may still place a flight ban marker during the second.
• Unused flight ban markers do not score VPs at the end of the game.

Thanks.

A few questions.

How many markers are there in total?

In 2 or 3 player games, only 2 markers each? Should it be 4 instead?

Any rules for 6 players?

2 or 3 players is 4 markers each. 6 player rules are not mentioned on this sheet but it would be 2 markers each.

We will make the "Flight Ban" promo available at the Geekstore soon. Should be shipped next week.

Just want to clarify: There are basically 4 opportunities (2 rounds each for both 1st and 2nd scoring) to place flight ban markers, but when there are 4+ players, you won't have enough markers to place one for every round. So you have to decide when is the best time to place your markers - do you want to place both after the 1st scoring, or save them for the 2nd scoring?

Is this right?

That's exactly how I interpret the rules

Do you have any estimate about when it will be available at the Geekstore?

Thanks

Hi, we had some problems with the shipping and have to wait for a possible container to join because otherwise it would be way to expensive.
