So I've read a couple times about an Arctic expansion for the game, and I thought it was to be included with preorders from Stronghold Games, but I do not see anything in the box I received today.

What does this look like? Are there new components or just rules changes?

Thanks!

I've got the game but not the expansion. Was it an Essen thing?

I'd double check the shipping box. Received my pre-order yesterday from Stronghold and the Aectic expansion was loose in the box.

Please check, double check, and then check again inside the shipping box in which your Stronghold Games for CO2 came. It is in the box, loose.

The warehouse is amazingly good at setting up their processing lines and getting the promos into the boxes that need them.

You will find that Arctic mini-expansion in the UPS shipping box, for sure.

Just curious if you got any tracking info or email saying the game was shipped. I know that Stephen said it may not happen, but just wondering. Did your game just show up this week?

My fingers are double crossed for a surprise today when I get home!

I did not get any tracking info or shipping notification. It simply arrived. Full disclosure: I live just west of Atlanta and the game was shipped from just NE of Atlanta. Thus, mine probably arrived in one day.

Best,
Ricky

Thanks for the feedback. I'm in Michigan and I know it is a 2 day standard UPS shipment time from Atlanta to Michigan, so my hope is that my copy went out on Wednesday and will be here today. It's a hope as I know there were a lot of games that needed to go...

Cool! You get to at least try a solo game this weekend then. I know these probably went out in random order and I don't even know if my order has shipped yet, but thanks for the post.

Mine just showed up as well, but I'm in NC so it didn't take long. Loving the game! (gotta wait till I get home to check the box again for the expansion)

Thanks for the prompt reply Stephen, both here and to my personal email. I got a chance to check it this evening, the expansion was indeed there, hiding under one of the bottom cardboard box folds. Glad I didn't throw that box out! Excellent job you all did on the realease of this game, thanks!

Man, I really hate this kind of bull poop. I bought this game from an OLGS and there was no mention of a expansion.

Looks like this is going to be like Alien Frontiers and all the extra poop there that I didn't get.

So I guess it's the trading list for this game then...

I missed out on the Alien Frontiers Kickstarter so didn't get the bonus goodies and yet I still love it and play it over and over.

You'd really trade away a game simply because you didn't get a couple of unnecessary promotional bits?

Well, there are bunch of new games to play that I didn't feel screwed by right after purchasing. Too bad I cracked the shrink and punched the bits out.

I just don't get why they wouldn't include a few extra cards in every copy of the first edition. What they don't like my business?

Right now the game is hot, with or without the expansion and I will likely get a solid trade for it sooner rather than later.

Yes.

I paid 75$ for this game. Much more than people in main land Europe have to pay or even in the States. So it really really really rubs me the wrong way when I'm not getting the same product as other people for a much higher price.

I feel I should get the same thing as everybody else and I will never enjoy this game knowing that I was screwed over by the publisher and/or retailer.

The only people who got this are those who pre-ordered directly from the publisher or purchased it at Essen and possibly some other conventions. Some leftovers are probably going to be sold here at BGG, which supports the site. They are simply promotional cards. Three of them. Two of them you could easily create yourself if you really wanted to.

In the future, copies sold won't include this.

I just got the game and played it (didn't use the expansion cards) and it's fantastic. The publisher isn't screwing you, you're screwing yourself.

But hey I'm sure someone will be happy to take it off your hands.
