Hi everyone. Been eyeing this game. Many, many good reviews!

How does the expansion help the game? Been trying to find if it is necessary to buy it. Like the idea of the BB and Armored frigate! cool

Other than the extra ships, does the expansion make it better?

thanks

I don't think the expansion is a must have if that's what you're asking.

I love this game. The expansion adds a few more adventures and a few alternate endings to the game. It is not essential and you should get quite a few plays out of the base game without needing the expansion.

There are no changes to the mechanics if that is what you were looking for.

The expansion came later to help ramp up the difficulty for experienced players.

When we do the gold banner edition, all the expansion material will get put into the base game.

When is the gold banner due? The VPG web mentions nothing about development , play testing , etc. . Is it still being "discussed" from time to time or is it a definite ? Very excited and a little impatient...keep up the good work !

Not sure where to put this question, so sorry if it's in the wrong place.

When paying a salvage point for an adventure peek, do you have to roll the die for a delay as with the other salvage costs? Can it be done more than once a turn?

Also with the Historical & Alterantive endings in the Expansion Kit (14.2), I don't see how you can lose with cautious play since you have endless time to rest and repair and ultimately there'll be no more ships to place. So you after having made all the salvage upgrades, you can ust sit out the game.

I asked Alan about a gold banner release when I had him on the phone last week, and he said it's definitely on their radar but would be at least a year out.

Things are finally heating up on second edition NEMO'S WAR. There's still no release date (later this year?), but I've been hard at work redeveloping the new edition under the eye of designer Chris Taylor.

So, keep a weather eye out for updates. Things are starting to really get going on this project now.
