There was a post/thread regarding a St. Pete expansion coming out in a German gaming magazine that was deleted from BGG. Does anyone have any news about the expansion or why the thread was deleted (and no I am not talking about the exisiting post under announcements I know that is still there and references the same German magazine)?

Thanks for your help.

I've been on this site for 15 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I prefer a better balance of favorites to new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

Jay Tummelson answered an e-mail from me that confirms that Rio Grande will be offering this expansion as well.

It is going to include 12 different cards. Does anyone have a manifest of what cards are going to be included?

Oh really? Folks think that aristocrats score too low?
Perhaps what is meant is that it is not as progressive, so that in the future, a few aristocrats score more, and later ones don't add quite so many points.

I typically use the Aristocrat/Worker strategy. I go alittle lighter on Buildings and Specials(square on backs). Overall, I like the card expansion but they didn't address my(minor) issues with buildings and Specials. In the expansion(small,10 cards) there is no reason to have 2 weg damit! cards. That is a waste. The bankett might be too powerful. I would have included instead the following: Super Observatory and a nice middling building costing 14 but has generous vps. Likely I also would have added another card which gives discounts on buildings over a cost of 14. The Super Observatory allows the holder of the card the option at the end of the round to look at the top card from the Special Deck (square on back symbol) and place it on top of a card which will be carried over to the next round. The covered up card gets discarded. Then the round ends and the remaining cards slide down to the bottom row as per usual. This creates interesting choices as the cheaper workers may not always be bought first in this situation. It also injects more special cards into the game. Keep in mind that the player may decide to discard the card if it is not to his liking and place it in discard pile.

i was really disappointed with this expansion.I love S.Petersburg but the new cards are unuseless or very powerful so that the game becomes too much unbalanced and luck driven.
