Caverna: The Forgotten Folk

Caverna: The Forgotten Folk

Caverna: The Forgotten Folk is being released in the US as we speak. It's an expansion for Uwe Rosenbergs behemoth Caverna, and one interesting thing is that it originated as a fan project on BoardGameGeek, and Caverna publisher Lookout Games decided to work with the designer to develop this material and release it as an official expansion.

The Portuguese designer Vital Lacerda, known for titles such as Vinhos, Lisboa, and CO₂, is working on a game named On Mars.

Like the name suggests, the game is set on Mars, and the players take the roles as chief austronats working for private space exploration companies. They are to develop the biggest, most advanced colony on mars scoring points for different mission goals and hidden corporate agendas.
Mining, building, exploring, upgrading buildings, recruiting and managing settlers are their tasks, aswell as getting power to the colonies.
In the end, the colony should be self-sufficient.

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.
