I know I'm interested, but it almost makes me wonder if CSI knows something we don't. FFG has been dropping some pretty big reveals leading up to Gencon....

What to do!? surprise

I had the exact same thought. Cosmic Encounter was their Daily Deal yesterday....

Yup, first thing I thought when I saw this was that they just confirmed 4th edition is on its way.

It was literally just reprinted last month so I'll be extremely surprised if there's a new edition of this one coming out.

Even though it's already back in stock everywhere, you can scroll down and see that the "on the boat" notification is still on their upcoming page:

If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I'll bet they'd live a lot differently.

Right? I can complain all day about the never ending stream of Star Wars themed games, but considering I throw my money at them every time something new is released I'm not giving them much incentive to invest in other IPs at the moment.

TI3E has sat on my shelf shelf and only played it once in the two years I've owned it, but if they released a Star Wars themed edition I'd preorder the damn thing.

To this day, TI3 remains one of the most memorable games I have ever played. Haven't played a game since 2009, and yet despite the passage of seven years, I still remember in vivid detail all three games of it I played that year.

Considering I often struggle to remember what I had for lunch, I consider that high praise indeed.

Well Tom Vasel did predict several years go that TI 4th ed. would be announced, lol.

What surprises me the most is that they keep this game in print, if only for the reason that at $89.95 MSRP and made with their old standards, it embarrasses their other productions that they have out there for $100 MSRP.

One of the best games ever, though, and you should definitely pick this up for nearly the same online price you can get their new Ra (LOL.)

I still have not heard a single person clamoring for this explain how a Star Wars retheme would work.

As stated elsewhere, I think the issue is would a new edition sell more than the current edition enough to justify the development of it? Add in it being roughly the same play time? Forbidden Stars didn't really trim time off of Starcraft. Having played TI3, I'm not sure a faster play is really better. I just don't see that many more people getting into TI4 simply because it is a new edition. I think the only way it happens is an Imperial Twilight with the role selection which helped solidify the game as part of the base game. But again, TI3 sells well enough I'm not sure FFG is all that concerned with making a new edition.

Given today is the start of GenCon, any clue if FFG would announce anything new today? Don't want to jump in if its going to be an old version.

Also, this would be way more tempting if they did a deal for the base game and expansions as they have been doing with other games.

Doesn't Rebellion already kind of fill the Star Wars mega-game niche?

Besides, Star Wars has always been about Empire vs. Rebels. It really isn't the type of thing you'd do a multi-faction 4X game with.

Exactly. People keep champing at the bit for this, despite the game not really working with the Star Wars mythos, unless you REALLY stretch it, or go to an era that very few people know/care about.
