    When can we expect an expansion for Lords of Waterdeep, and can you provide any details on the expansion.

    Thank you for including the DDAS(Dungeons & Dragons Adventure System) enemy/ally cards in Dungeon Command!

    Will there be a 4th DDAS game? (besides Castle Ravenloft, Wrath of Ashardalon, Legend of Drizzt)

    How about a Demon faction-pack for Dungeon Command?

    Will the Dungeon Command faction sets be limited release sets, with new sets replacing old? or will they be an expanded line?

    I am excited about Dungeon Command both because it looks like a fun game in it’s own right but also because it expands on the Dungeons and Dragons Adventure System games. I am disapointed that there are no new player characters for the DDAS in Dungeon Command though.
    Are there any plans to further expand the DDAS either through fourth and future stand alone games, or better yet through other expansions such as advanced level expansions for the base games offering the ability to advance the player characters beyond level two along with some appropriate monsters, treasures, scenarios, etc.

    Wizards have so far only released 1 online adventure that combined Castle Ravenloft & Wrath of Ashardalon. Will they release more adventures that will combine with Legend of Drizzt as well as the new monsters (and allies) from Dungeon Command?

    With D&D Next moving towards a highly modular RPG system, has there been any thoughts on creating a tactical module that is compatible with currently in-print stand-alone products like Dungeon Command and the D&D adventure games, hence enhancing the value and utility of all D&D associated games?

  • James said:

    Although it’s a Hasbro brand, will there be any expansions for Battleship Galaxies, or was that a one-time venture?

    And if one-time, what are the chances of any development materials coming out for fans to expand the system themselves?

    Can they offer any hints on future Dungeon Command factions beyond those already announced?

    How will the factions be made to feel and play differently from one another?

    Copied from my BGG post:

    Are they just going to reuse all of the old DDMs, or are they going to bless us with new figures? I really hope for new ones.

    Is it confirmed that the tiles will work with the board games?

    Will any of the monsters/heroes be available as player characters in the board games?

    Why haven’t there been any D&D adventures that use the bits from the variuous D&D boardgames? Surely that would cross-promote product better. Thanks for the D&D adventure game stat cards with Dungeon Command. That’s why I bought it!

    Will D&D Next’s movement away from miniatures affect the D&D boardgame lines?

    Any any chance of HeroScape coming back or will HeroScapers be creating custom army cards once DC comes out? (:

    I’ll echo what James asked about Battleship Galaxies. Why haven’t we gotten any expansions for it yet? We’ve heard that some other scenarios have been written; when will you release them?

    Another vote for “what’s up with Battleship Galaxies” – a great start of an expendable system that hasn’t seen any news for quite some time; what are WotC’s plans with the line, will there be any expansions, and what is the meaning of the continued silence on the game’s fate?

    (OK, expendable was a typo, I meant to write “expandable” … rather Freudian if you ask me :D)

    I third the questions about Battleship Galaxies. Great potential for an otherwise untapped aspect of the gaming market, but utter silence from WotC regarding expansions and/or plans.

    Thank you, 2d6 and WotC, for offering this unique opportunity to get answers to our gaming questions.

    +1 for where are the Battleship Galaxies expansions?!? My gf and I just picked this up and are wondering why there haven’t been anymore expansions. Great game with an awesome system that hasn’t been realized yet.

    Battleship Galaxies, will it ever see an expansion? Or at least some new scenarios?
    Also if the game is dropped, will Wizards or Hasbro release at least a kit for customers so they can expand the game by themselves?

    The DnD brand has been branching out into various forms over the years (novels, euro-style games, board games, etc.). Any chance we will see a movie any time soon?

    I enjoy the Avalon Hill line of games.
    – Are there any games that you see reprinted in this line?
    – Is there anything you can tease that will be coming out?
    – What will be different about A&A 1941?

    Much thanks in advance.

    Any word on future campaigns for the DnD AS? Campaigns that work for Ravenloft alone, or combine the sets? I have a friend who has Ravenloft, and I am not sure that there is much value in me buying Ashardalon yet.

    Also, Tom Vassel commented on Drizzt characters being overpowered relative to the other DnD AS games. Do you have any comments on that statement? Can the hero characters be mixed and matched and still have a balanced game?

    Thanks, Dan

    Any plans for more games along the lines of Lords of Waterdeep, but perhaps with deeper theming? (The theme isn’t bad, the game plays really well, but it’s easy to get lost in treating everything as cubes and just looking at the symbols.

    What are the plans for Gamma World? I really liked the game theme and idea and wonder where it’s going now.

    Any plans for some of the older games like Star Frontiers or something like that?

    What are the plans for games outside of the “Magic” and “Dungeons & Dragons” franchises? I know that WotC publish more than just those games, but it’s not easy to find that information on the website.

    I also would like to know if you plan on anything for the Battleship Galaxies game system although I heard from the local game store that the license was already sold to another company is this true?

    Battleship Galaxies is a really cool game. I think there are a lot of us that were hoping for expansion packs (star bases, mine layers, asteroid forts with weapons, etc.) and more scenarios. Now that the movie has been released (loved the new Battleship Movie edition by the way) it seems like a good time to offer expansions. Thanks for this great game. The comic book was just too cool! The game mechanics are a lot of fun. I think a lot of us just want MORE! ;^)

    BATTLE CRY: 150th Civil War Anniversary Edition
    Is there any word on Battle Cry expansions? The game designer Richard Borg hinted that there were some in the works. It would be great to play some official epic Battle Cry battles.

    I would like to see an expansion for the battleship galaxies, I always check the web about this once a month, hopefully to see any news for it :). Its a nice game for me, because it not just require strategy and some luck ( which sometimes can be a tide turner ) :)..

  • Loyal Gamer said:

    Battleship galaxies is the most addictive boardgame I’ve played in a long time. I was surprised to see that it came out in 2011 and there hasn’t been any more support for a genius gaming system with tons of expansion potential. This is the type of boardgame I expect to see in the year 2013. I’ve already bought 2 copies to ‘expand’ my fleets, but would love to see another box set with 2 new different fleets in another galaxy. ANYTHING would be awesome! Come on don’t let us down! You have a goldmine in that game.

    I’m also a Battleship Galaxies fan but it appears the line is dead.

    Rather than ask if ther are going to be any Battleship Galaxies expansions (which the answer is no but I’m sure you will receive the canned response of “I can’t comment on that at this time”), I’d love to see a question like:

    “What do you think was the main reason Batleship Galaxies did not sell as well as you hoped?”

    There’s a number of factors from using the Battleship branding for a hobby game that doesn’t have mass appeal, releasing the game only 2 months after it was even announced (no time to hype), or failure to market the game appropriately.

    Will there be expansion order card decks fo existing faction packs? I would love to expand upon existing sets without havingto buy and store additional boxes of miniatures.

    My understanding is that Dungeon Command was partially back burnered while the team concentrated on getting out the Lords Of Waterdeep expansion. Now that it is out I believe work on Dungeon Command will start again.
