Great games can quickly go out-of-print leaving some of us eating the dust behind the elephant parade. Nominate a worthwhile game now in-print that is likely to go out-of-print in the next year or so. A game might be worth getting even though it's not been popular. No game lasts forever of course, but some deserve a longer shelf life.

Only Boards & Bits appears to have this in stock among North Amercan online retailers. I don't think it has sold enough copies to earn a reprint. The game dynamics are creative and fascinating. It's a mind twister for sure. One Geeker referred to it as "delighfully head hurting." Better get it quick because once it's gone its asta la vista baby.

Even though I put this on a previous Geeklist a week or so ago, I'll say it again. It's going and I want it. I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! Tantrums aside, anyone interested in trading it to me?

This one AFAIK can be found just at homergames.
No idea if it will be reprinted or not, anyway it is quite tough to found.

This is just a guess. It is on the list of games that Rio Grande has no plans of reprinting. I've heard that they are gone from the distributers, so when the last from the stores are gone, they'll be harder to find.
