This has been out of print for quite some time but it is the #27 ranked board game on this site. I know Filosophia is supposed to be doing a reprint but it does not appear to be a priority (and from what I can see, talks of this alleged reprint have been going on for years). Certainly there are many people who would love to buy it so why isn't there any sort of push to get this printed?

Same reason as always - "many" people would buy it, yes, but that's a relative term. I'm sure they've decided their money is better invested in printing other, newer games.

maybe we'll have to wait for a deluxe 10 year edition

of course if they put it on kickstarter to truly "gauge interest", they'd likely find themselves with the biggest success that site has seen yet...

A slightly reworked version has been under development in the past years. I guess they are still not completely satisfied with the rework...

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Maybe because it doesn't need to be reworked... whistle

Of course that's what they have decided but I wondering why they picked it up for reprint in the first place if it wasn't going to be a priority to print? "Many" is indeed relative but 851 people currently have this game flagged as wanting which leads me to believe a reprint would have a chance to be more successful than a typical "new" game published.

It just seems odd to me that such a highly acclaimed game here on BGG that people want has been out of print for so long.

Here is the quote from another thread about the date:

Quote:
hello mike,

it´s such a pity! but filosofia has changed the release date to 2012.
so i´m also waiting and snore

best rüdiger


Since at the beginning of this year Filosophia said that it would be out in November, I am not sure how much faith to put into their 2012 estimate.

I have a geekmail from Mr. Dorn himself from November 2008 saying it would be published in 2010...

Note that it appears to have changed publishers from RGG to Filosofia along the way. That could account for some of the delay.

Yes, I remember reading another thread some time back where they were discussing some of the changes planned for the new edition. I'm surprised it never happened, though my original edition is just fine with me.

I just got an e-mail from FiloSofia regarding the reprint:

" I've just started working on Goa and it should be released next year in April (if all goes according to plan)." -Jean-François Gagné

So that gives them 5 months until they have to hear from me again! shake

I just hope they update some of the coloring so this red-green colorblind guy doesn't have to ask what everything is like a four-year-old. Love the game otherwise.

Hmm, guess those $81.00 to $166.00 copies will go unsold.

My girlfriend and I found a copy in a little game store in Kelowna, BC last week, priced at retail. She went and bought it for me for Xmas. Was very happy to unwrap it this morning!

That's pretty cool! Which of these happened?

1. You didn't buy it on your trip. She went back later and purchased it for you. Christmas morning: SURPRISE!

2. She said "Well, I'll get this for you for Christmas, honey". Then wrapped it for you to unwrap it even if you knew what it was.
