Has FFG dropped Battlestar Galatica the boardgame and its expansions?
Take a look at this weeks Roll for Crit podcast where they discuss this very question.

It’s certainly true that the game isn’t listed on the FFG products section of the site, but you can go direct to the page from Google.
I’ve only recently got the base game. So if I like it the three expansions could start to get expensive. Look at how the prices of the Games Workshop licensed games and expansions went through the roof when that agreement dissolved. I’m not even going to attempt to get the expansions for Blood Bowl Team Manager or Space Hulk Death Angel. I mucked up on those and wasn’t quick enough grabbing them. Mind you they weren’t that easy to get hold of before the announcement.
So now I feel compelled to grab the expansions while I can and they are at an affordable price. Which explains why I pulled the trigger on the first Battlestar expansion Pegasus. Exodus and Daybreak won’t be far behind. Most likely payday.
See FFG haven’t made any official announcement yet. All we have at the moment are conspiracy theories.
There are possible innocent explanations. Are they going to do a 2.0? But then why take down the page? Or are we just looking at a programming bug or data entry error?
But to be on the safe side if you are a fan of the game and been sitting on the fence about any of the expansions, I’d be picking them up now while you can. If you have been wanting to buy the game, I too would be getting a copy now.
If the worst case scenario is true, that FFG have decided to no longer publish the game, then prices are going to get silly. We know they, recent history shows us they will.
My final thought on this is “good job it doesn’t rely on an app.” But that’s another post entirely.
