So, I'm glad to see this game coming stateside, but I don't really care for the retheme. Are there any plans for an edition with the original art?

I recommend trying to order it directly from the author. I was able to get an English copy a few months ago.

Thanks. Unfortunately, I just contacted Seiji Kanai, and he informed me that he was out of English versions. I may still try to order a Japanese version, if necessary (and if possible, as he only had a few of those left as well).

Ooo—I would be all over a Japanese version.

Can you GM me the e-mail you wrote to?

Yup, Seiji was very helpful when I geekmailed him about an English copy of R - fortunately for me he still had some left at that point.

Does anyone know a street date in the US? I like the silly Scottish rat theme.

BraveRats is printed and ready to ship.

And you will be happy to know that we are also releasing a limited run special edition of R in English to promote the game. Right now, the plan is to distribute it on BGG.com (as a promo item or contest prize) and also at some of the bigger gaming cons in the US: Origins, Gen, BGG, etc.

If we get enough positive feedback, we will consider doing a larger production / distribution.

Awesome, that's excellent news! I really hope it's a promo item, because I have awful luck with contests.

I think an English release of the original is a great idea. I can't get behind the "cute" versions of these games that we tend to get in America, or when someone wants to slap their own IP on top of it. I guess I just prefer the aesthetic of the originals, including things like Cheaty Mages and Lover Letter.

The promo versions with the original art and rules have arrived!!

We will be giving them out at the ACD Distribution trade show in Wisconsin at the end of May. They will almost certainly be handed out at our booth at Origins and Gen Con too. And I will be keeping a handful on me at all of our local community events in the bay area (Maker Faire, Kubla Con, meetups, etc).

Any further info on the previously mentioned plan to have them available on BGG? Probably can't make it out to any conventions any time soon...

It is something we are still considering, but no decision yet. We need to see how many we go through at Origins. We only printed a limited number and want to make sure they last through the year.

Will there still be copies of R at Gen Con? What is the booth number?

Edit: booth 348?

Seeing people talk about this as being "Love Letter for Two People" has it on my radar, but the new artwork almost took it directly off. That an English version of R even exists is good news, but if I won't be back in the country in time for GenCon then I have to hope that some of the people who obtain copies turn around and flip them. I'll pay a markup over what the regular retail version costs I guess.

Yes. And Yes, 348.

We will have 100 copies available at Gen Con. $15 by itself. $10 if you bundle it with BraveRats (which will also be sold at $10). and Free if you spend $50 on new 2014 games.

Because we sold out at origins, we will be limiting it to 25 units per day at Gen Con. So come early in the day if you want one.

I've seen at least one of these on ebay, so I think you should have some luck. The markup was quite steep, but that's to be expected.

I suppose that I should start checking eBay since GenCon is over. Hope I can find something.

We just shipped 50 copies to the geek to sell in the bgg store. Not sure about the turn around time on availability, so keep your eyes peeled.

Did these ever go on sale? I've been looking at the BGG Store every couple of days, but perhaps I missed them.

Cheers.

I am not 100% sure, so don't hold me to it, but I don't think they have. I figure that if they had just shipped them to BGG at the end of August, the copies were probably not received in time for the Sept store update. At the beginning of Oct when the store updates again, they might appear? That is what I am hoping anyway, I really want a copy.

Yep, just bought a copy and a Starfire DC promo for $13.XX shipped. Today feels awesome now. I can finally delete that $15 copy of R (that's $15 before shipping, so $20+) from my watch list on eBay.
