So now I see Sierra Madre's webstore is calling the expansion High Frontier Colonization, pre orders in October, expected release in Oct 2013. Gah...

I just got the second ed. of the base game, and am already wanting the support cards and expanded map. Looks like I will be waiting quite awhile, sigh...

I guess one could still buy the poster, and jury rig cards based on the excel sheet in the files section in the meantime... Still the other new stuff sounds great too.

I believe that "High Frontier Colonization" is a 2-nd expansion. The first expansion surely is still available.

We must move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!

Not currently, aside from the occasional copy that shows up in the marketplace for an obscene price ($70+).





Unless you happen to know of a source...?

I used screenshots from the VASSAL module to cobble together a set of the expansion cards. They're functional, but are a poor substitute for the real thing.

I must try to track down the vassal mod. Or cyberboard if that exists.

My plan was to print out the expansion cards and sleeve them - shouldn't be too bad since they don't have to be shuffled in with the others. I'd love a reprint of the expansion though.

For the poster map, if you keep an eye on Zazzle, they offer big sales occasionally. There was a 50% off a couple days ago.

zazzle seems to do 50% off pretty regularly

The Sierra Madre website says there's going to be a "new improved" expansion in April 2013. It's not clear if this means the Colonization expansion will be out then (its web page still says Oct 2013) or if it's the original expansion with extra stuff.

This is more or less equivalent:

Colonization = original Expansion with much more stuff.

Does Colonization come with the map board extension?

Yes, and it's a drastically upgraded version that covers almost as much as the poster map - all the way out to Sedna (which is beyond Pluto).

The old expansion board only went to Saturn.
