Really longing to...what!? You left us hanging there, Winter Storm!

Are you longing to buy this next expansion? Longing to see what the next expansion is going to be? Longing to go camping? Very Happy Laughing

Ah, but there is a new expansion on the way! Some of us have been hinting about it for a while now, much to everyone's frustration. The official announcement will come early next week.

Check this thread for some good (and not as good) guesses about the expansion and for many of the clues:

Expansion? Yes! We must expand as far to the east as we possibly can!!

"2" Slotrace? That's the most enigmatic, cryptic post yet! Laughing

1) Expansions with new miniatures (Ardennes, Kursk.. / equipment)

2) New kind of maps (urban, island...)

3) Scenario book / overlord scenario books

4) "Solid" breaktrough maps (countryside/beach/winter/desert.....)

5) Modular board system.

As a side note I wouldn't mind them releasing more paper maps but it creates a lot of work for me because to avoid the recent map ripping at the creases I have had it laminated and store it in an architect's expanding plastic scroll case. Also, if more are released like this I'd like to see more extra stuff included with them. The supply trucks were cool but it seems like so little for the price. I was more impressed with the terrain pack than I was with the map.

I looked into laminating the paper overlord map, but it would have cost me about $45 to do it ($5 a sq. ft. at Kinkos). I figured for that price I could buy 3 more if I had to at some point (to replace ripped ones) and get more trucks.

Did you find some cheaper alternative for laminating? If so, where did you get it done?

My vote would be for terrain -- particularly coastline and all-sea hexes, plus scenarios.

The current beach map board is too regular, with the beach taking up too much space. It's grand for D-Day, but doesn't work so well for things like commando raids.

Yep, I agree. I would be nice to be able to design docks, harbors, islands etc.

Also nice (maybe) would be a small add-on to the bottom of the map to add more ocean hex rows, and other goodies, as part of a naval/invasion expansion. It would be nice to have coastal batteries pounding the heck out of convoys etc. and vice versa.

I wouldn't mind seeing a cheap, card only expansion. A few new command cards, weather cards, random event cards, etc.

If you got two maps use one with the beach and one with the grass. Do some homade grass tiles to place between the two maps. That should give you plenty of room for battles.

Played a lot over the holidays and can't help thinking an equipment expansion would be great...

Given that we've already had trucks, designed to be used for any nationality, maybe we could have the same for Jeeps and half-tracks and SPGs and tank destroyers (apart from anything else, under Lend Lease, and with captured equipment being put to use...)?

And given that some of the stuff we've got (that's real fun to play with) doesn't look totally like Shermans, Desert Rats... Twisted Evil

Yes, and maybe some more ship pieces! Ala Iwo Jima! Laughing
