I've wanted to get into this game for a long time and still haven't been able to but I think a chance is soon approaching and I'm trying to figure out what exactly I'd be wanting to get the whole game.

I see 3 soon to be released expansions for the 30th anniversary...

1) Giant Squid (a reprint of this to match the new edition?)

2) 5-6 player expansion (a reprint of this to match the new edition?)

3) Dolphins and Dive Dice (components that were removed from the game for the 30th anniversary edition but will be available separately?)

Will all these be available through normal distribution channels or only direct from Stronghold? I recall the earlier edition expansions being available through the BGG store. Is that happening again?

Glad I just saw this as I was about to purchase the existing 5-6 player expansion on the BGG store. Is there any idea on when these will be expected out?

Will the 30th Anniversary editions of the 5-6 player expansion and the giant squid expansion work with previous editions of Survive?
Thanks.

The 30th Anniversary 5-6 player expansion only contains the 5th and 6th player meeples. You want the previous 5-6 player expansion because those contain all 6 player meeples. For the giant squid expansion, I don't see why not, should be compatible for both editions.

What's the difference of the Giant Squid for the 30th edition?

The only differences are:

1. The rules booklet is printed with the 30th Anniversary artwork.

2. The Squids have eyes printed on both sides. Without asking, they painted eyes on both sides, so I didn't complain.

[Same will be the case for the Dolphins in the upcoming "Dolphins and Dive Dice" mini-expansion. The Dolphins will have more eyes to watch those bad Sea Creatures more closely! ]

Thanks,

My only question is to know if the pieces will all be in plastic.

I got mine today. The 5-6 player tokens are plastic to match the ones in the 30th anniversary edition, and the creature tokens are wooden (also matching the 30th anniversary edition). In addition, the dolphin dice are engraved plastic dice and that expansion includes an engraved replacement die of the original as well.
