Mayday Games reprint in 2012 of this 2004 Eagle Games title includes lots of upgrades!
22 June 2012
From the Mayday Games Newsletter:
Mayday Games is happy to announce that we have acquired the rights to bring Bootleggers back in print for the first time since its original 2004 printing. We will be releasing the updated game in late 2012 or early 2013. We need to thank Ray, Don, Mike and Steve at SDR Games for working with us. We would also like to thank Sean and the team at Eagle Games for working with us as well. They have graciously agreed to provide the original molds for the trucks, copper and influence markers (‘the Boys’) as well as helping us with the legal mumbo-jumbo required to make this happen. We will be working with Eagle to allow them to distribute the game to their loyal fans and have been very impressed with the kindness by both Eagle and SDR. One of the best things about this industry is the people who work in it, and this has never been more evident to us than throughout this process.
We are very excited about all the great extras and upgrades we have tentatively planned for the new release including:
• The 2 double-influence cards
• The 4 blank cards
• Extra variants including a 2-player scenario
• Improved trucks with easier-to-read numbering
• More cash!
• Revised rulebook
• Full set of 6 colored dice for each player with more dice than before
We will be printing more of the double influence and blanks cards with this print run to allow any previous owners to get any replacements they need directly from Mayday.
We are also working on the much anticipated Expansion. This will involve the ending of prohibition and the transition from the speakeasy to higher-end casinos for each player. We will have some other exciting extras/upgrades available that we will announce later.
More details will follow soon!
