Does anyone know when Caverna is being reprinted/redistributed?

The game sold out more quickly than the reviews came out. Therefore, I missed out on the purchase.

I figured if Sam Healy liked it after professing his hatred for Agricola over and over again, it has to be good.

Somewhere in February 2014? My boardgame store owner told me so.

Did they tell you this before or after this? No wood, not even for sheep! Hidden in that thread is this gem from Lookout:
Hanno wrote:
Here's the 101 of determining a print run size for the publisher:
To estimate the size of the first print run, we took the perorders coming in from the distributors, added what we thought we could sell at Essen, added some more that the distributors most likely were going to add to their orders, and rounded up.
As soon as the distributors reordered, we started working on this week 51 print run and on a real one for Feburary. And we estimated for Q2/14. I think that's fair enough.
So...not sure what Q2 means here...it either means FY14/Q2, which would be Jan-Mar, or Q214 for real, Apr-Jun.

Assuming Hanno is indicating it'll get a reprint in February (and it actually is reprinted then), you'll probably see it in stores late March or early April.

That's three runs. The second one in response to orders is due in Jan, a few weeks later than planned because of wood stock shortages at the bit maker.

I missed the Sam Healy video/audio. Can someone point me to it? I saw Tom's review...

Re: Caverna reprint
Did it get thrown off something or was this an unremarkable review that makes no meaningful points.

This seems consistent with 999 Games statement of a Dutch release in Spring.
I don't know this for a fact, but I think all publishers get their game material from the same factory, especially in cases of no language-dependant parts.

I picked up an order from Bob at CLS Games today and counted 18 copies of Caverna on the shelves. Didn't ask what the price is (already have mine), but thought I'd mention it.

Good luck,
Ricky

This is probably his price:

http://boardgamegeek.com/geekstore.php3?action=viewitem&item...

or

http://www.amazon.com/MayFair-Games-Caverna-Cave-Farmers/dp/...

surprise



Which sucks, because I'd love to find a copy....that isn't 40-80 dollars above retail.

Hmm. This looks to be the non-Amazon price:

I got a quote from CLS and it came in around $147.43 with shipping. Amazon has a ding and dent from CSI (about 5 last I looked) for about $123.00. My wife and I really want this but we already have a healthy Agricola collection and I just can't see spending 70 more than I would have if I had hit CSI when it released for a game that is so much like something in my collection...

just have to play other things till it becomes more readily available...you know like Robinson Crusoe has...

Ive been waiting far to long for the reprint. I've been in pre Order for several months!
If CoolStuffi changes its Estimated release too May/June I'm going to scream & loose it! I'll cancel my order and just buy the original lookout games print (as long as its under 200.)


PS. Can some one post a link to the Back Story as to why Caverna needed to be picked up by a different company for a reprint in the 1st place?

Wasn't Lookout Games acquired by Mayfair Games recently? A quick Google search might give you an answer.

It wasn't. Same company did both.

I have my copy up for trade.
