WizKids released the board game version of The Expanse last October (see “'The Expanse Board Game'”). Now it will expand the space opera adventure with five new modules that can be added to the base game in any combination or individually.
The Expanse: Doors and Corners Expansion includes: Leaders, New Tech, Resource Tokens, Protomolecule, and Variable Setup. Leaders can be added to fleets and add influence. New Tech mixed up the powers that are available, and offers players three choices when it is earned. Resource Tokens can be spent to pay CP cost, add AP to a card, move a player along the initiative track, or score bonus points. Protomolecule has a new scoring opportunity to the game. Variable Setup allows fleets and influence to be placed anywhere when the game starts.
Based on the sci-fi book series by James S.A. Corey, the popular space opera series The Expanse was broadcast on Syfy for seasons 1 – 3, after which the network did not renew it, despite critical and commercial success. Amazon stepped in to pick up the show for Season 4 this spring (see “Will Amazon Embrace 'The Expanse'?”)
Another adaptation of the series is also do in game stores soon, Green Ronin is releasing a role playing game adaptation this year (see “Cover Reveal for 'The Expanse RPG'”).
