Reprint copies? Are you sure?
Indeed, "reprint" sounds odd. (Especially since it's apparently hard to track down the original copyright holder to get permission for a reprint, from what I understand.)
Old original copies (perhaps found sitting around in a warehouse somewhere) sounds more likely than that someone is reprinting them, doesn't it? E.g., I picked up some old new-condition Metagames at BGG.CON a few years ago from a vendor.
