I am definitely planning on new tiles for an expansion!! I know it's the most requested thing I get!
I did the new ship mini-expansion because I promised I would during the Kickstarter campaign (you can see on the campaign page). :)
Hey Cody! I would definitely back any XIA expansion:) but I think more tiles would add more than more ships? Just my thought:) thx again for the great game!! And if your ever interested in doing a game with someone,, I live in Washington a couple hrs away:) I've got all the cards, pieces, board but still need better art and someone like you who is great at production and details. God bless!
Heads up! Xia's reprinting is currently available for pre-order from our website! www.faroffgames.com
@Andrew: Those came out great!!! I can't believe that's really your first shot at miniature painting - I think you've got an eye for it! My own set still in primer-gray...*sigh* Trying to get ready for a new baby takes it's toll on one's hobbies... :)
I posted some pictures on BGG of the three new P&P mini expansion ships that I painted up. I'm happy with how they turned out. Here's the link if you want to check them out: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1420821/three-new-ships
My apologies. I didn't realize that the link didn't go through, but also many people don't have or use facebook, in which case my contact is LordGixx@Hotmail.com. That might be easier for some. =)
So...how do we take advantage of this offer David??
OK, I don't want to spam this column, but we've worked out some HUGE discounts here!
XIA EXPANSION I Ship Set, PRO-Painted by Twisted Willow ( $20 ) !!
While our raw materials/etc stay THIS LOW =D
...I'm with James. +1.
Would love to see a bundled expansion kit Kickstarted in the near future with all your ship upgrades and such.
you had me at you're developing a game about surfing. I have dreams about being able to surf every day, SUP on flat days.. dreaming.
For anyone from the USA: Happy 4th of July!
I'm eager to see what's next. Cody, if you have any details to share on either a new game or an expansion, I think your fans would love to get an update. It's been awhile since we've heard from you!

wish i can get some new ships. xD
@Kevin: Thanks man! Really cool to get nominated!! Wouldn't be possible without amazing backers such as yourself!! :D
Congrats on your multiple nominations for the Dice Tower Awards!! You certainly deserve it for this wonderful game!
Ditto on what Shawn said!
Thank you Cody for bringing us all together....and bringing us Xia! It's an outstanding Game that you can REALLY be proud of...I know that I am proud of the miniscule role that I played! It was a fun trip. Looking forward to your future project (alluded to on Xia's BGG page)
Just thinking about you guys and gals today! So very very thankful for you making Xia possible!!! :)
XD Xia humor ^ ^
Cody, you did good work on this game! My family has been having fun with it. You have the talent my good man so give it another go on a project, I am sure you will have loyal backers.
Ps. this is my favorite game now! It doesn't feel competitive to me, (due to soo much dice rolling) but just so much fun! Excited for your next game Cody:) and please don't be shy to contact me if you need help play-testing, or want to develop another persons game.
15 point 2.5 hrs..
I activated the merchant every 2 player, and the other 2 every 4 players.. I just ran them and kept track myself:) as far as color I just went colorless (and used power grid as my markers),, it made exploration a little quick, but becuase of how long turns took it made people take maximum risks!! That made it really fun I died 3-4 times and 2 other players did as well. Great times:)
@Justin: Wow - 6 players would be huge, haha! What color did you use for the 6th player? How many points did you play to?
Just played six players! It was a blast:)
@Shawn Charney [TundraThunder] Thanks Shawn! I would've missed that link if you hadn't posted it here.
Here's some sage advice from the man, the myth, the Legend...Cody Miller.
Here's another Glowing Review of Xia https://www.youtube.com/watch…
this time by "Boardgame Corner"
Double post, my bad.
Hi Cody. 25 plays down. Not bad for it just being January. So I was wondering about the mini expansion. Can I give someone a few bucks for this or... I kinda want more. ;)
Right you are Andrew! It's been far too long - I'll get right on it!
As glad as I am to have Xia...I miss the Friday updates. The anticipation of Xia news always made my Fridays fun.
Awesome finds James and Brian! Really cool to see the Dice tower talking about Xia!! :-D
Thanks for being a part!! :) -Cody
Tom Vasel looks back at 2014 kickstarters including Xia. Look at 2014: Kickstarter: http://youtu.be/LxqBJv-fvIY
Thanks for the heads up about the podcast IgneusManus. They discuss Xia's components at 1'20'' and also praise the way the campaign was run overall (with which I'm sure we can all agree!)
@Dave: Awesome! Thanks for spreading the Xia love!! :D
One of my friends played once, Loved it, and has bought himself a copy already☺
Nevermind, Cody! The great people on BGG helped me out. :-D
@Cody - There's a rules question I had that I would love to get your opinion on if you get a chance. Thanks! http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1291015/npcs-vs-hazards
I don't know if you guys noticed but Xia made it to Tom Vasel top 10 games of 2014.
Great work Cody!
Merry Christmas, Xia friends!
Just a quick message to wish all of the XIA family a merry Christmas
@IgneusManus: Awesome!!! I'll try to listen over the Christmas break!
Xia got a bunch of mentions in the latest Dice Tower Audio Podcast. I will not list them all as it would take a long time. However, the podcast is definitely worth listening to. It is Part 1 of their "Best and Worst of 2014" episode. Spoiler: Xia isn't listed as "worst" for its categories. You can listen to it here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/dicetower/TDT386-TheDiceTower-Episode386.mp3
And here is another good comment about the Dice Tower's terrible play of Xia:
