EEE states that this is the "final printing" of cave evil. I am curious to know if that there may be a "revised", or "second ed" printing after this one, or is this truly the final last printing. If it is the last printing I am just curious of the reasons behind EEE's decision to discontinue the game even if the demand may be there.

Also wondering if you could give us a bit of insight to what you have planned for expansions(cards only, fully playable all in one expansion, new cavern types, etc.)
Thanks

I don't think this is surprising in the least. Based on the limited print runs of their back catalogue of games, we're lucky that we're even getting this second printing.
Like the previous poster suggested, the designers, being creative people, likely want to move onto new things. Nothing about the way they do business suggests they're doing this to achieve profit.

True, but they could have easily said nothing about this being the final printing, then do a third printing when/if the time or opportunity presented itself.

BTW I am not implying any thing about possible/perceived "motives" about reprinting this. I know that they are an interdependent game producer. Just wondering about the actual finality of this game.

From this thread...

Quote:
If pre-orders exceed a certain point than upping to 2000 would be done. But final printing is absolutely definite! 420 is the only assurance that it moves forward into the realm of printing 1000.

'Never say Never'... But be prepared to wait 5-10 years, just to find out it still might not happen for another 5-10...
That being said, this is the final print run by EEE, and currently- that is the only way it will ever happen.
If for instance, it is licensed for production overseas, it will surely be of a similar limited print run (big giant IF there).

The expansions will include a new everything, as well new things that are not part of the original everything.
The variants book will give you dozens of different games/options with the base or expanded game.

And yep we are just doing this out of a niche in the garage for a niche audience (HAILS!).

Sometimes, no really does mean no.

No need to wonder.

They are done with this game. Time to move on.

Now, you could be a gambler and see what happens in the future. For such a low cost, the upside of waiting in the future seems quite low.

Dam, I wanted to order this game but at $61 to ship I can't justify the total cost.

I was talking to Milsim on Thursday. He spoke about picking up some games. If this happens it might be a cheaper route.
