So I briefly saw an ad on the geek today for what looks to be a reprint of this game and I can't seem to get it to come back up again. I'd never heard of it before but it looks interesting and I'd be curious to hear from anyone who has played it what they think.

Other then the page here http://aka-games.com/website/?page_id=800 does anyone have any more info on it?

I wrote to AKA directly, asking for some details, and received this response:

We're gonna launch a Kickstarter in January and will let everyone know about it. As the game is nearly ready (we're testing it again and again and working on a good translation), it will be released in August 2014 (for Gencon Indy). It will also be distributed in USA.

We changed mostly some rules, that, in 2005 disturbed many gamers who liked more tactical, german style games. Movement for instance, was determined by rolling dice. Now you may use this rule: life points +2 for movement. That means that if you're hurt, you move slower. The Absinth card is now only an option, too. A die is still used for combat and some other action cards. We improved the board too, as the previous squares were too small.

We also added the best cards of Whitechapel along with its additional rules. With Kickstarter, we'll be able to propose other surprises (PDF and new cards) and maybe minis.


Sounds like a winner to me! thumbsup

For your information, the Kickstarter for the English version of London 1888 (based on the Second Edition) is up and running as of today.
