Does anyone know if Rio Grande is planning to release the Ys+ expansion for the 5th player in the U.S.?

If not, would the Ys+ expansion as sold by Ystari be compatible with the Rio Grande version?

Is the "official" expansion necessary - rules for 5 players are posted on their website, but it looks like additional cards are required.

Any insights would be appreciated, thanks.

I haven't heard anything either way, but I wouldn't expect it from RGG anytime soon.

Yes, the Ys+ expansion from Ystari is compatible with the RGG edition.

You don't need Ys+; you just need a set of homemade brokers. Ys+ includes a set of blue brokers for a 5th player, plus a bunch of new character cards, some event cards, and a number of other little goodies.

Be careful if you order the Ys gems at the same time; my set was completely missing the yellow gems, and despite promising to send replacements, it's been two months, nothing has shown up, and they aren't responding to my emails inquiring as to the status of the missing gems. It's a shame; I love Ystari's games, but their customer service is putting me off.

Dear Chris,

Where and when did you sent your mails ?
We always send replacement parts as quick as possible (and we certainly sent you yellow gems if i said it was the case), but i cannot find your e-mails.

Can you please send me a new one, with you address on it ? Maybe there was a problem last time.

Regards,
Cyril

I just saw the expansion on Funagaingames.com today. It has cards and new markers, I think it was around $20

Just as a follow-up, I did eventually receive a set of replacement yellow gems.

It looks like the first one sent went south in the mail, and email disappearance accounts for the "silence" from Ystari.

Cyril was polite and professional through he whole thing; my confidence in Ystari is restored.
