I had this game when I was a kid and loved it, I would very much like to have a copy on my shelf again. I’ve been stocking this game for years on Ebay only to see it go from the outrageous price of $100 to well over $200-$300 now; and they are mostly badly damaged and missing parts. For nostalgia’s sake, I would love to see this game reprinted. Let's make it happen!

Re: Reprint!
Painfully misleading topic title. Maybe change to "I want a reprint!" or "We need a reprint!"

Re: Reprint!
Great! Until then, please avoid posting such threads in the News forums. You might give someone a heart attack.

(Edit: Note that original thread title was "Reprint!")

I own this game (traded Agricola for it) and I would still love to see a reprint! One of my favorites, as a kid and as an adult!

There's nothing quite like hitting Hasbro with a bunch of requests:

http://hasbro.custhelp.com/app/utils/login_form/redirect/ask

They don't make it very easy to fill out a form, but if you try hard enough, you can make it happen. I asked about reprinting Betrayal at House on the Hill, received a similar response, but fast forward 9 month, they reprinted it.

Below is the response I received from them:

Hi David,

Thank you for contacting Hasbro, Inc. regarding the Fireball Island game. I appreciate your interest!

I do apologize, however, there are no plans at this time to reissue the Fireball Island game.

Please be assured I will share your interest with the appropriate personnel.

Thanks again for your interest.

Hi,

I'm writing to ask if Hasbro has any plans in the works to reprint Fireball Island. It is a very popular game in the board gaming community, and is fetching a pretty penny in the used market.

Uh, yeah they don't. I went to the site to follow your lead - am I reading it right that you have to create an account to e-mail them???

I reckon you could always try this address: hasbro@custhelp.com

I don't remember if I had to create an account, if I did, I'm not finding any evidence of it in any of my junk email accounts ...
