Portal Games has just announced the next expansion for Imperial Settlers, 3 Is A Magic Number.  This expansion is another empire pack and adds cards to all five of the existing factions for the Imperial Settlers game in addition to adding a new SET mechanism to the game.  What the SET mechanism does is when you build three buildings of the same color you will both get extra points and trigger a special ability based on what color set you just built.  This brings an interesting choice to the drafting phase because now you are looking at both the abilities of the card and it's color.  You can read the full press release about the expansion below and look forward to it's release on May 25th. Portal Games announces 3 Is A Magic Number The next Empire Pack expansion in the Imperial Settlers line. Gliwice, Poland – April 4, 2016. Today, Portal Games announced 3 Is A Magic Number, the next expansion for the award winning Imperial Settlers. Imperial Settlers: 3 is a magic Number is the second Empire Pack for Imperial Settlers from designer Ignacy Trzewiczek. 3 Is A Magic Number introduces all new mechanics and includes cards to supplement all five Factions currently available in Imperial Settlers. This expansion introduces a new rule: SET. This new ability allows players to score and trigger new effects each time they build 3 cards in a particular color, so called SET. With that rule drafting phase and choice of a right card to draft is even more interesting! "I like the fact that with this expansion the draft phase gets even more interesting,” Said designer and CEO Ignacy Trzewiczek. “You are not only looking at the abilities of cards, but now you also want to collect particular colors to build sets and activate your powerful feature cards. It's fun!"
