Trying to figure this out, Eagle supposedly has a new reprint and this seems to be true because the game can be purchased on their website but why isn't it anywhere else?

Last year a kickstarter was launched to release the North America expansion. I bought mine there, but I don't know if they printed extra to send to retailers

Salim,

As you mentioned, we have it on our website and it is at some distributors as I just checked. It may be "in the pipeline" from us to distributors to stores, so keep checking.

You may want to ask your favorite retailer on line or FLGS to order from us direct if you still cannot find it.

Best

Ralph,

I really appreciate the information you are providing. I have asked several OLGS early April about the availability of RotW and one major store replied:

Thanks for ordering with us. Eagle Games has not released the game to distributors. They may be keeping it as an exclusive to their website. I apologize for any confusion and/or inconvenience this may have caused. We appreciate your business and look forward to any future orders you may place.

I see it was available in your store since the end of January and it is nearing 3 months for this game to get to other stores. I may not know much about the retail business, but this seems to be a very slow rerelease of a very popular game.

It's certainly not showing up anywhere in Australia that I can see.

It's clear that Eagle games has kept this print run to itself. CSI can't get it nor can Funagain. It doesn't seem like Ralph or anyone from Eagle is interested in being transparent about this.

Well, Cardhaus and Time Well Spent have several copies for the past couple weeks so some distributors must have them. I'm not sure why the other major OLGS can't seem to get it.

Are you sure the stock is from the latest print run?

Not sure, but are there any changes on the latest print from the 2nd edition?

I don't think there's a change, it's probably the same as the 2010 version.

Found myself becoming impatient and I ended up ordering from Cardhaus. The copy that I received was the Feb 2012 printing (2nd edition). Seems to look good but then again, I haven't seen any BGG posts that confirm/deny changes in the latest printing.

I ordered it from Miniature Market on May 20th, and my copy is also dated February 2012 (on the back of the box).

It's not available on Coolstuff, and they report it is out of print. However, you can get it at Amazon. Strange.

I sent an email to CSI a week back to ask. They said they're not sure when they are getting it, if they are getting it at all. Gotta wonder why, I've been wanting this game bad

This is absurd, there is nowhere I can buy this, living in Australia as I do.

Now back in stock at CSI:

Looks like they just got a shipment of many Eagle games, including several Railways expansions and the event deck.
