Hello! I'm excited to finally announce the secret project we've been working on: The Moor Visitors Expansion to Viticulture.Backstory
Last year I had the pleasure of collaborating with one of my design idols, Uwe Rosenberg (Agricola, Caverna, Patchwork, etc), on the Viticulture Essential Edition. On a whim, I asked him if he would be interested in designing a few visitor cards. I figured he might design 3 or 4 cards, and I'd turn them into a promo pack to sell on BGG.
Several days later, Uwe sent me 64 card designs.
I cut some cards that didn't fit well into Viticulture and honed the rest for balance and wording. The remaining 40 visitor cards now comprise the Moor Visitors Expansion, the name of which is both a play on the word "more" and on Uwe's "Farmers of the Moor" expansion to Agricola.
Every card is beautifully illustrated by Beth Sobel, and most of the cards feature Uwe's friends and family. There's also a special card based on this Viticulture-themed proposal story, https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/136645 ... engagement
. In addition to the 40 visitor cards--which fit into any version of Viticulture (they're marked with a tiny "MV" icon)--we've included reprinted versions of the Promoter and the Harvest Machine.
The Moor Visitors Expansion has already been printed, and it will arrive in St. Louis in a few days (along with more copies of Viticulture and Between Two Cities). [...] Extra Notes
[...] In the Viticulture Essential Edition, there is a rule update about when you can gain 1 VP from a tasting room. You may only gain the 1 VP bonus from the tasting room if you have at least 1 wine token in your cellar. You don't lose the token--it just has to be there so your guests have wine to taste.
