Expansion Clans of Caledonia


I am working on the expansion of Clans of Caledonia. I shared some ideas on BoardGameGeek. Feel free to join the discussion, or even playtest some of the ideas and give feedback!


I am also working on a simple, semi-cooperative card game about looming blackouts! All players may at times need to coordinate their simultaneous card selection to prevent a blackout. When a blackout happens, all players loose immediately. I have presented the game to visitors of the recent BerlinCon.

    Hey guys. My wife and I absolutely love Clans of Caledonia and have introduced it to a number of friends and family who jumped on the bandwagon. We are wondering if you were able to update us on any further expansion(s) planned for Clans.

    Thank you

    Hi Juma.

    Congratulations on your game “Clans of Caledonia” It´s really cool.
    Will the expansion support a 5th player? Will that be possible? That would be awesome.

      The expansion will most likely not suppor a 5th player since this would impact the balancing of the clans and make the game last too long.

    Hi Juma,

    First of all, congratulations & thank you for designing such a great game. My friends & I love it very much.

    I recommend that the new expansion comes with a bigger box to replace the current small box that can barely fit all components. In order to ease the setup process, I currently store the game components in multi-compartment containers which cannot fit all into the box.

    Also, I recommend to include inserts (such as those that are made by https://www.gametrayz.com/) that can fit all components into the box. This is to help setup & store the game more easily. I don’t mind paying a little bit more to get good inserts to help setup the game faster & store the game better.

    Good luck with the new expansion & Merry Christmas…

      Yes I am but I am taking my time. I was submitted a few excellent designs that I now want to focus on and that I will likely publish in 2021. Thank you for your support and interest!

    Hello Juma!
    Played Clans for the first time last night and I was hooked! Went searching for a copy to buy and saw it was mostly unavailable online. Then I see this great news about an upcoming expansion! When might we expect the base game and expansions to be available? Are you planning to run a Kickstarter or Gamefound campaign?

    • juma says:

      I don’t know yet when and via which platform I will seek to crowdfund the expansion. Thank you for your interest!

    Dear Juma. Your game is absolutely amazing. Lovely design and mechanics. We played it to death a few years back and it’s a game I’ll surely keep in my collection forever. Hearing these news is such a nice surprise. I rarely back anything, but this I’d love to.
    Cheers from Croatia.

    Hi Juma,
    CoC is one the most loved game in our circle.
    We, Yuri and Ian from Voronezh, Russia, are waiting desperately for the expansion. Hope to see it one day.
