“Roll For The Galaxy: Ambition” Announced By Rio Grande Games

roll for the galaxy

For those who enjoy Roll For the Galaxy you can look forward to tis first expansion “Ambition” to be released this fall.  It was up in the air until now whether an expansion would be released.  In January game designer Tom Lehmann posted the following in a thread on boardgamegeek about the possibility of an expansion.

Ultimately, this is up to the publisher, RGG. The tentative plan was that the card game would have expansions while Roll and [redacted] wouldn’t have them. This could change, of course. Both Wei-Hwa and I have ideas that we could run with. RGG will see how Roll does in the marketplace. We’ll also have to look at the future Race products in the production pipeline and make sure that we don’t saturate the market.

I’m sure Jay, Wei-Hwa, and I will discuss this further at the Gathering this year (in April). By then, we should have some solid sales data.

Even though the Gathering of Friends has not occurred yet it is obvious that the sales of RFtG justified at least one expansion.  Jay Tummelson Owner of Rio Grande Games the publisher posted the following later in the thread.

Roll for the Galaxy: Ambition, the first expansion to Roll for the Galaxy, will be coming this fall. New factions, new dice, new tiles, and more! Further details to be revealed this summer.

As always we will keep you posted as more information becomes available on this title.
