According to Jay at Rio Grande Games, a reprint of Thurn and Taxis is coming in a couple of weeks.

Great! Awesome game. Cheap price too (if it stayed the same MSRP).

I asked about a T&T reprint OR a T&T big box (since there is one in Germany), and he said "it will be here in about 2 weeks - just like the original" so interpret that as you will. To me it sounds like only the original game and not a big box with expansions, but I can see how it could be read differently.

Are you sure that's in the rules?

Anyone theorize why the game will be reprinted? The game is now dirt cheap in Germany, at least (9 euros at Essen, and still at spiele-offensive.de). Could it be that Rio Grande produced far too few for the English market for the demand? Maybe its charm is now being discovered outside of Germany?

Why not buy a German edition? The game plays in that area anyway, so that adds to the atmosphere. And you can get the expansion as well. The English rules are available online and there is no text on the cards beside the places.

Can anyone reccomending a good source for the German editions at that price for a UK based gamer? I got addicted to Purto Rico over Christmas so I'm looking to check this out next.

Cheers!

I asked Jay about the Big Box about two years ago and he replied that he has no plans to release a Thurn & Taxis Big Box. Sad times, I know, but the man's the boss.
