My wife were playing the other night with a couple and they brought out a little gem of a game called Finca. My wife and I loved it, laughed with good friends and immediately decided we must have this game. Less then 24 hours later we threw up our hands in disgust as we found that the source of our pleasure was out of print.


Let me know what games you all have found, played and knew that you must have, only to find out that the source of your new affection was Out of print.

Craptastic luck. Apparently it went out of print in the months proceeding my first play.

Played this once. Didn't love the gameplay, but the artwork was grotesquely cool and the game is super easy to teach. Just quirky enough to spark my interest.

Have yet to find a copy in the US. It's not a game I'd pay a ton of money for. Probably $20 max. Further investigation has led me to believe that when it does sell it's for a lot more. Oh well.

We managed to score a copy before it went out of print, but now that we were hoping to buy it for friends, it's unavailable again. It may be coming back into production late in 2011, but nothing more than rumors for now.

A friend of mine pulled this out last year, and we instantly loved it. Of course I wanted a copy, but it's been OOP for a decade. Just could not get it anywhere - even Ebay failed me cry. I eventually emailed the company that made it, and while they have no plans to reprint it, they did mention that it can still be found on shelves every now and then, or more likely on Amazon.

One thing led to another, and I used a buying agent to get it from an Amazon vendor and post it to me in Australia. Cost me $50 for a game that sold for $15 or so.

Same as with Target, and I've just this minute snagged a copy on E-bay

Plus it was priced at about 1/2 - 1/3 of what sellers usually seem to ask for it

I think this is the "aw crap" game for me. I'd heard of it, and still haven't gotten to try it, but lately I've heard it recommended a LOT only to find out it was OOP.

I'm hoping that there's a copy at BGG.Con so I can at least try it out.

I love almost all games, play Boardgames with my wife, have three kids, generally enjoy cats and understand and like those bumper stickers with the little fishies sprouting legs.

I tried this on a whim at a local Con and really enjoyed the combination of area control/blind bidding/special player abilities and political theme. It seems only 500 were printed and nobody is rumored to be interested in reprinting it any time soon...

Though it's not one I can play constantly, I've always found this light little game over on Yucata to be enjoyable and thought it might be something I could convince my fiancee' to play.
Out of print, apparently has been for a while.

Thanks to ArtsCow though, I was able to make my own "rethemed" edition for only a few bucks
