Unboxing the Concordia Salsa Expansion featuring a new wild resource, new maps, and more

A look inside the rather large box for Concordia Salsa from Rio Grande Games, which is one of my favourite board games of all time.

The expansion adds a new wild resource, Salt, a two-sided player board, new forum cards and more to your games of Concordia.

What you get with Concordia Salsa:

Description from the publisher:

Concordia: Salsa is an expansion for Concordia and Concordia Venus.

The box contains:

Two new maps: Byzantium and Hispania
Wooden pieces for the sixth commodity: salt
City tokens for additional salt cities
27 Forum Cards for new strategies to follow

The cards are all different, can be acquired during the game. Thus, players can explore new strategic challenges in the great game! Some cards have permanent effects, others return to stack after using. Both the sixth commodity and the new cards can be played with the base game and the Britannia expansion as well, thus giving even more variety.

Please note that the cover has changed as of April 2021.

Concordia is one of the best games in my collection. It made My Top 20 Games of All Time List back in 2018 and still deserves to be on the list now. I’m sad to say that in all the time I’ve owned the game I’ve never actually tried the Salsa expansion, at least now I’ve got it and it’s unboxed and ready to play. I look forward to sharing my thoughts on it in the future.
