Is the IV edition of GtR still available at a reasonable price? I just recently found out about this game and want a copy for less than the BBE is going for.

It has not been discontinued, but that's not the same as saying it's available. All I can say is (from my super secret insight knowledge of the murky workings of CGF) that it has not been discontinued, but it does not get reprinted often enough to meet demand.

Copies appear on the BGG market for under $50 on occasion. But more importantly, Cambridge Games Factory has recently shown sparks of life. The kickstarter for the black box edition was a disaster for them and almost killed the company. But they have a booth at the London Toyfair this week and say they are starting up again. They tweeted last fall that they were "looking to relaunch" at the the London Toyfair. Since GTR is their most well known game the odds of a reprint should be going up. It may take a year, but it would seem likely to happen.

I've run across the older Glory to Rome in stores for MSRP on occasion. I don't really mind the cartoon-y artwork but never had a good reason to buy the game. I remember seeing it at Madness Games & Comics in Plano TX some time back, but don't recall it it's still there now.

A reprint is in the works. I don't know when it will be printed, but my guess is that in the next two months or so it will be printed. Cambridge Games' website mentions this if you look at the page for Glory to Rome. I have also contacted them and they are taking orders from stores, but I never got an update on how much time before they will be finished.

I wish they would send out a newsletter. I've been subscribed for about 3 months and there has been no word.

I have a copy of both IV and BB, I would trade IV if the right offer came around - sadly I do not believe I still have the original clamshell though and instead keep it in a tin.

That clamshell provides negative value anyway.

Hasn't their website said reprint in the works for over 6 months now?

I hope they reprint the Black Box version... maybe not in as nice a box but at least replacing the ugly art from before...

I'm hunting for this game as well. I don't want to play the ridiculous prices people are charging though. If anyone here wants to trade away a copy look at my collection. Maybe I'll trade something not on my trade list for it. Thanks!

Just spotted at least five new copies of this edition in a shop in Gothenburg, Sweden. I think it was 239 kroner (about £23). If anyone wants a copy let me know via Geekmail: I can bring some back to London and am happy to ship at cost from there.
