Hey everyone - we're hard at work on the first couple expansions for Belfort and we need your help!

The expansion adds some more dynamic content, by which I mean you choose 5 of the 10-12 that are available each game - just like you do for guilds. So each game will be even more different now - which means we really need to ensure everything's balanced. We need about a hundred more playtests to get through this. So we thought either we could do it - and postpone when we can get this expansion out to the masses - or we could ask BGG and see if anyone's interested in helping out.

If you're interested in playtesting the expansion, then we can give you the art files to print out and try it! Visit this link, which takes you to our blog and provides the directions on how to participate. Thanks to all that are interested!!

OK - I sent one to your local game store. You just have to go in and pick it up...they might charge you a handling fee of around $60 though... :-)

Nice try!

Thanks to those that have already emailed - fantastic! I've emailed out the expansion already to you. We can still fit a few more in - so if you're interested - follow the above directions!

I wish you success with the game, and hope it's coming to Germany soon!

(Any news about a german distributor yet?)

E-mail has been sent. Hopefully you're still in need of people, as I'd love to play-test expansions. Thanks for the opportunity!

Thanks for the interest, everyone. We're definitely looking for more playtesters for this and future expansions for Belfort.

Re: German distro / localization, TMG is hard at work trying to swing the right deal for all involved. Fingers crossed!

Exciting! Belfort is an amazing game and any expansion would be a day one purchase for me.

Played our first game with it last night.

I'm sure when they get our report they'll be shaking their heads and saying "who plays this way?"

Ditto. I lost by about 20+ points to my wife and one of our friends who had never played it before. I still don't know what I did so wrong in that game.

We also played our first game with the expansion last night. It was met by very favorable reviews. Drafting email now for the session report.

We're thinking of letting it run for another week - maybe 2 - and then go through all the feedback and make some assessments. Then we'll have V2 which we'll send back out to all the initial joiners. No expectations for V2 - but if people can or want to try it again - fantastic! I always find it interesting to see how a game develops and love playing each iteration of fellow designers' games! So keep on sending those sessions reports in! And many, many thanks to all!!!

So my wife and I just started a two player version with the expansion. Have rules been made to adjust for the non-players and their turn crests? Because we didn't see anything about it, and we weren't sure what to do - so we just kind of made up our own rules for now.
