WizKids has been expanding out a bit lately from just their HeroClix and Dice Masters lines. Diversifying is good on a portfolio. That counts double when you’re teaming up with a well-liked property. In this case, it’s Lookout Games and their Agricola game. The two companies are partnering to bring you new expansions.
These will be rather small packs, containing a pre-painted figure as well as unique cards in each expansion.
“We’re excited to work with Uwe and Lookout Games to bring new content to the Agricola franchise,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “Lookout Games brings a legacy of quality, style and innovative game play to the table and we couldn’t be happier to enhance Agricola with detailed, pre-painted figural & gameplay content.”
“We’ve been wanting to do painted figures for the family members for a while now and thought it would be great to couple them with new content for the game. We’re excited to be working with WizKids to make this a reality,” said Grzegorz Kobiela, editor at Lookout Games.
We’ll be starting to see these expansion packs on store shelves near the start of next year.
