Who told you about the Tower? Alliance or Z-Man? A few days ago when Kalinda posted on the Z-Man Facebook page she didn't know which expansions were being released in Q2.

Yes, I've been given the impression by Kalinda that some plans are kept secret until just before release. Sophie would probably know sooner in advance since she is the CEO. Do you have an e-mail address for her?

Yes of course I have.

I think I sent it to you some month ago by email.

I'll sent it to you again.

Alliance - but release dates seem to always get pushed out. Sophie would know for sure.

I sent an e-mail to Sophie and got an auto-response that she is away from her desk indefinitely. Let's see how long "indefinitely" is.

Well, it does seem a bit obvious what the next releases will be...

If they'll keep releasing 3 expansions at once and keep the German release-schedule it might look something like this:

Feb. - Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders, The Princess & The Dragon
Jun. - The Tower, Abbey & Mayor, Count King & Cult
Oct. - Catapult, Bridges Castles & Bazaars, New 2013 Expansion
Nov. - Winter Edition

They might throw in Wheel Of Fortune, or save it for next year. They might save their unique expansions (Corn,Plague,Tunnel?) for next year as well...

Just a guess.

Spielbox expansions are not included in the license agreement, so we won't be seeing CP&T.

I suspect they might be working with a quarterly release schedule, so I would revise your prediction like this:

February: I&C, T&B, P&D
Q2: Tower, A&M, CK&C
Q3: Catapult, BC&B, WoF
Q4: Winter Edition, Gingerbread Man, Minis

What will that leave for 2014? River I is included in the base game...though it could also release separately. We are still unclear if Z-Man can/will produce Cult, Siege & Creativity (or a similar product). I think that will only leave Corn Circles I, The School, and Wind Rose as official (albeit harder-to-obtain) expansions. I completely agree with your prediction, Scott.

2014 could see the re-release of the standalones. I'd be surprised if the School got released here; that was a promo/fundraiser more than anything.

The school is a special "project" - that belongs only to HiG and their "Rhainbow over Ghana".

Too bad they have to start with the [already] published expansions...

Will Filosofia follow suit (as in wait to release new expansion) or are they on their own schedule and will hopefully release new expansions sooner?

Jay had approval for the School and had plans to release it after CC, P, & T..... so hopefully Z-man Games will have the same approval.
