Two new expansions announced

Two new expansions will get released in October. The first one is Inis: Isle of Seasons, which will add a 5th player to the game.

The second new expansion is Altiplano: the Traveller.

With Altiplano: The Traveler, the planning of moves in Altiplano becomes more important and accessibility to resources becomes more interactive. Above all, the assets that may be purchased from the traveller open up completely new ways to increase one’s own wealth. But unforeseen fortunes sometimes demand spontaneous decisions which influence planning.

Christian T. Petersen steps down

Big news from FFG/Asmodee USA: Christian T. Petersen has announced that he will retire from his position as CEO of Asmodee North Ameria. The last game he designed will get released later this year:

In 2014, following a merger with French publishing giant Asmodee, Petersen became CEO for Asmodee North America – a position he will leave at the end of 2018 in order to “focus on family, health, and the pursuit of other interests”.

The last games Petersen worked on at Fantasy Flight will be released over the next six months to a year, he confirmed.

The departure of the FFG founder comes as Asmodee prepares for a new owner: PAI Partners, a private equity firm, will buy Asmodee for €1.2 billion.
