Is this extension likely to be reprinted?
And if so how soon?

Judging by the high prices for English versions on Ebay, a foreign language version is a possibility but I do like to have a 'proper' rulebook in my own language.

Maybe but Black Secret wasn't very popular. Most people didn't seem to like it.

Black secret is a great expansion and I'm glad I picked it up before it vanished from print.

I really like games with a Many vs 1 mechanic. And black secret does it well.

The Wu Feng player has little down time and enough and often tough decisions to make regarding what to do with each ghost that is drawn, is a curse used, is the ghost converted into a demon or played on the players board.

I've not played with White Moon, but if you like Many Vs 1 games, then consider Black Secret.

That's what appeals. I've not played anything like that yet. Even if one side habitually wins, a games group can take it in turns and see WHO can break that streak.

I just wondered if anyone had any inside knowledge -there do appear to be many people dissatisfied with the slightly larger cards available so a new edition could enable the cards to be reprinted and sold on their own for a small charge.

As for the expansion being unpopular -well a geekrating of 7.64 for an expansion with slightly oversized cards doesn't exactly imply a turkey...

Maybe we should try to create petition the same way fameros had done for White Moon expansion.

I hope there's a reprint for this expansion soon. Always tempted to buy it for ~80 just incase it's never reprinted.

If Black secret does warrant a reprint, I hope they sort out that business with the card size.

Just dropping by to say that I've contacted Repos and they said Black Secret "should be available next year"
