Yeah, we've heard all about the latest wundergadget: look, a mobile phone that makes espresso! Product is annouced. The launch date arrives...and passes.
A second launch date is announced...nada.
A third launch date is made...zip.
A fourth...you get the idea.

I have a feeling that some boardgames may just go the way of vapourware! AS such, I've decided to dub these games PULP FICTION...at least till they actually get released!

Cafe games and Pro Ludo annouced this for end of 2005. Essen even!

They organise a competition and promised that winners would receive the game by Christmas. It's 2006. Hello?

Announced about the time the PC game was released. I played the game till I got sick of it. Still no board game.

2004 becomes 2005. The xbox version of the game is released. Still no board game.

2006. Still the same THREE images of sample game artwork.

I think Eagle missed the boat with this one.

Ohh, exciting! The first game that Rio Grande is producing from scratch.

Not only was the Essen released missed, I don't even think anyone has seen a playable demo!

YAY! Our very own Ted Cheatham has designer credits!

Months pass. All we get is box art. 2 versions of it. No real mention of how the game works, which is strang considering Faidutti gives in-depth coverage of all his released and forthcoming games!

Faidutti says Decemember, if not January on his website. Good luck waiting!

Essen came and went. Nothing. Yeah, I know. It's on a slow boat from China. Or so they tell you.

Let's see. Warfrog reversed their 'no reprint' policy and did a second run. They said it was on the way on a boat. All of Europe got the second print run. The rest of the world has to order it from Boards and Bits.

Torres reprint announced in 2005. Game was released.
Tikal reprint annouced in 2005. Game was released.
El Grande reprint announced in 2004. No game in sight.

I think that Jay Tummelson really wants to sell the pile of English version cards he has. Everyone seems to be buying the game from Germany and getting the cards from him!

This is the king...no, no, it's the EMPEROR of announced-but-not-actually-reissued games. I will once again buy Chessex dice on the day when they quit lying to us about this.

I know that the Up Front reprint is considered to be one of the ultimate vapor titles. Eventually, it may see the light of day, but it does not seem that the light is getting any closer!

This one is to be reprinted in France by UbiK in 2006.
Hmmm. That sounds too good to be true. Wait and see.

How about this one. Not only has the game not come out, but the company has stopped doing games. Odd to think the a RK game with a hot theme has not been picked up be somebody.

Anyone else remember that mysterious announcement from Avalon Hill? The jist of it was that they were moving ahead on reprinting a classic game that was highly sought after. They didn't mention what it was, of course. Speculation ran wild for about a week and then... nothing.
