I think the last official news was 1st half Q2 2014? Has that schedule firmed up? Any updates? Thanks!

Hopefully they make an edition with a multilingual rulebook - so more than English/German, otherwise my Dutch translation I made for them will be in vain...

Didn't they post it on their website?
Didn't you post it on BGG?

Peter says here that the 2 and 6 player expansion will be a few months:

That's not really related to the reprint, but my feeling is that it would be more efficient to do the reprint and the expansion together.

That would mean one print run / year - that would be kind of crazy as for a demand that is currently on the market for this title.

We have partnered with Huch and Friends in Germany and Ystari Games in France for distribution in most of the EU for Francis Drake.

The Huch and Friends version will be in German and English and has been printed and is on the container for shipment. Huch and Friends will have the best details on when to expect their shipment but it should be within the late Q2 estimate. This will include Germany, Austria, German speaking Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Greece, Romania and Bulgaria.

The Ystari Games version will be in French and are still in production and are planned to be ready to print and ship very soon (April?). Ystari Games will have the best details on when to expect their shipment and most likely it will be late Q2 or sometime in Q3 this year. This will include France, Belgium, Luxembourg and French speaking Canada.

Eagle Games retains the rights to distribute in UK, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Netherlands and Scandinavia.

As mentioned above, there is a Dutch translation in the works (and perhaps other languages). These will be made available in due time. However, there will not be specific editions for other languages at this time.

I hope this helps answer all your questions!

Thanks Ralph.

Today amazon.de put Francis Drake for preorder with estimated delivery date for 1st of May.

That would mean that the container with boxes is very close (considering 4 weeks until May vs unloading, customs, distribution to the warehouse ect).

Anyhow - Francis is near and Montezuma already in my hands

amazon.de just raised the price from 50 to 80 EUR Either it's a mistake or they really went crazy.

I contacted Eagle Games since they have it in stock on their website again. I received the following two replies from different people:

"Thank you for contacting us and your interest in Francis Drake. The game should be getting to a store near you soon. I can't give an exact time, but it should be soon. You might also want to ask your local game store to order some copies."

"Thanks for your interest in Francis Drake. We have the game available to retailers and distributors but we do not control who, or if anyone, buys it from us. We are also MAP protecting the price of this game. We produce only very small print runs, so perhaps you might consider buying it directly from us because we do not expect any discounting of the price from other sellers, and the current print run may run out in a relatively short time."

There has been some movement on Amazon.de in the last days regarding price. Also FLGS put preorder on Francis - so I would say that packages are coming (really soon).

This print run will not be huge - but for sure it's not a 100$ game. At least not until the reprint hits the shops and is gone
