Temporum: Alternate Realities speculation

So the Temporum expansion is supposed to release sometime this month (hopefully), and I took a look at the RGG page - it adds 48 new zones, and 60 new cards - that doubles both!  It also mentions chits and cards for certain new zones (interesting!).  What I'm mainly wondering is what the rules will be with playing with expansion cards - do you just play with all 120?  Make that 180 if another expansion releases?  Seems unwieldy.  Or will the rules say to play with one set or the other?  That could certainly add more variety.

As a disclaimer, I did play with GendoIkari's prototype of the expansion way back in 2015, but I don't remember anything about it, and had no idea which cards/zones were base and which were expansion at the time.  I was just really confused the whole time.

You just play with all 120. I don't imagine there will be another expansion.

120 sleeved is pretty unwieldy; what I usually do is, after shuffling, just put about half of them in the box. It's  very rare to go through 60 cards in a game; of course if I do I get the other half.

But after I get a published copy, I'll probably unsleeve them.

Expecting it late beats not knowing when to expect it!

So... how many days after 4/20 still counts as ~4/20?

That's a weird way to say you are disappointed by the actual release date vs. the expected one.

Prediction: There will be a new zone called the Age of Disappointment.  In that timeline, Temporum: AR is never released.

I will let you know when my copies show up; I do not expect to have any more guesses, accurate or otherwise.

Oof, halfway through May. Such is the way with board games. There are three expansions for games (including this one) that I should be able to obtain this month. Yet somehow I doubt I'll get even one of them until at least June.

Rules are online! :)
http://riograndegames.com/Game/1309-Temporum-Alternate-Realities

Woo! No full card list though; at least not outside the names/FAQ, which tell you some things but not everything.  Super excited about the very bottom of page 12 though.  ;D

I'm guessing your name is not actually "Gendo"?

Also, Amazon says it'll be in stock on June 30th.

I said it over at BGG and I'll say it here. Any release date that lands on the last day of March, June, September, or December is almost certainly a placeholder date. Amazon receives a release forecast of "Quarter 2, 2017", but their system doesn't allow them to enter that. So instead, they just plug in the last day of Q2, which is June 30th. In reality they likely have no idea when they'll have it in stock.

I could be wrong; maybe it's a coincidence and the date really will be June 30th. I doubt it, though.

Had a quick try at adding the hourglass zone in the rulebook to my client:



I've fixed it so it's the only age 1 zone to be chosen for now.

Good call. Amazon has now updated their date to May 22nd.

Aha.  I'll just order it after I move, then.

Why are board games so expensive on Amazon? It's $10 more there than on Coolstuffinc. But with CSI, you need to spend $100 to get free shipping. Considering just buying $100 of games now...

I decided to wait and see if I wanted to order today.... and they're now out of stock at CSI.  :(

I suppose I'm happy that they sold quickly; I want it to be popular and successful. I wonder how many copies they had...

RGG probably didn't make that many copies.

EDIT: Jesus, they only had 1 copy left on Amazon, so I snagged it.

I have no idea how these things work, but my guess/assumption is that retailers such as CSI and Amazon order a set number of copies from RGG, and then sell those copies. So CSI and Amazon being sold out doesn't necessarily mean that RGG is sold out. CSI might order more from RGG since the ones they ordered the first time sold out quickly

Maybe?

Nothing on Amazon.co.uk was that .com? Getting worried. My christmas gift voucher is still waiting. I'm 44.
