Through the Ages: New Leaders & Wonders, the new expansion for Through the Ages, has been delayed until February/March next year. The publisher CGE has posted an update on BGG explaining the reasons behind the delay:
The card printing problem that led to the original delay last month is more difficult to solve than we expected. As a result, we hope to have the game out by Spring of 2020, but we can’t be more specific.
The problem we are trying to solve is that the card backs for the expansion look different than the card backs for the base game. This means players can make out how many expansion military cards their opponents have, or see whether the next prepared event is from the expansion. This is not information players should have.
We apologize for the delay this is causing. We would not be postponing the game’s release, however, unless it was to ensure that every player of Through the Ages and its expansion has a good experience.
But there have been component issues with the KS edition of the base game, which have been solved in the retail edition: the wheels have been redesigned and are now cardboard and the water drops are now wooden (link: Barrage Production FAQ).
We have talked to customers who have received the retail edition from us and so far there doesn’t seem to be any remaining issues with the game components.
