Dominion Menagerie

Dominion Menagerie

Someone said to me that the last expansion of the deck builder Dominion was coming out. I believed them. Well, I believed the part where there would be an expansion was coming out, but I laughed at the notion that it was gonna be the last one.

That expansion in question was Dominion: Guilds which was the 8th one. Here we are a couple of years later and now it's time for the 13th expansion; Dominion: Menagerie. Let's have a quick look.

Marvel Legendary: New Mutants

Marvel Legendary: New Mutants

The next upcoming expansion to Marvel Legendary is "The New Mutants". This refers to a group of X-men, who has previously appeared in Legendary as special bystanders in the X-Men expansion.

New Mutants members Magik and Cannonball have already appeared in the game as playable characters in Secret Wars, Vol. 1 expansion and the X-Men expansion respectively, so our guess is that we can rule those heroes out. This is probably going to be a 100-card set, given the material.
With that in mind, here are our speculations:

Marvel Legendary: SHIELD

Marvel Legendary: SHIELD

Another Marvel Legendary expansion is on the horizon, with a focus on S.H.I.E.L.D. It's a small set with 100 cards and it will feature new heroes, masterminds, villain groups, etc. Perhaps the biggest news is the special S.H.I.E.L.D. officers to mix in with Maria Hill.

Marvel Legendary: Revelations

Marvel Legendary: Revelations

Another expansion for the successfull Marvel: Legendary series is coming out in August. This time, we will have heroes like Scarlet WitchQuicksilver and War Machine joining our ranks to battle the mastermind The Hood, among others. The set will also feature the Mandarin, which looks like a really cool Mastermind with some fresh ideas. When it comes to villain groups, the set will feature cool villains like the Dark Avengers.

Villainous Expansion

Villainous Expansion

An expansion for the Disney themed game Villainous is to be released i March the 3rd, and will be only be avaible in Target stores (in US) until the end of the month. After that, our guess is that you can pretty much pick it up anyware. What goes for the rest of the world is a bit uncertain at this point but there has been hints from Ravensburger that the game will be released in germany in March aswell.

Roll for the Galaxy: Rivalry

Roll for the Galaxy: Rivalry

The highly anticipated second expansion for Roll for the Galaxy is being released some time in Mars/April 2019.

MSRP $80, which is 20$ more than the base game, and the designer has commented this like so;

There will be plenty of content; a new die type, new start factions, home worlds, and game tiles, new player screens, all new 10 player dice, a dozen customizable dice with over 200 plug-in die faces in 48 different type, 62 Roll dice in 10 different types, 5 sheets of tiles and markers, 8 sheets for the deal mat, new phase strips, plus wooden disks. Alot of stuff.
We recognize the price is high, especially for an expansion. If we divided it into three separate expansions, then the total would probably be around ~$125, instead of $80, and we wouldn't be able to provide unified Player screens or save some cost on components shared between the Deal and Orb games.
