It will be MasterPrint #13
See: www.quined.nl

And good news for the backers of the crowd funding project:
(from the site)

"There has been an earlier and unsuccessful attempt to publish this game through crowd funding. Quined was not involved in this attempt to publish the game; this was solely done by the former publishing company of the designer of the game.
The designer of the game has decided that those who have signed up for this game and did not get a refund, will receive a free copy of the new Quined version of the game.
Quined and the designer cooperate to realize this.
Further details will be published later on the websites of Quined and Boardgamegeek.

There will be a small expansion and a goodie available for those who preorder the game before Essen 2014.
The backers of the game will also receive both the goodie and the expansion."

Wow, I hope this is true.

Massilia is one of my earliest KS/indiegogo/ulule (I forget which) fail...

This is great to hear. The wording of the announcement ("The designer..." sentence) is a little odd, but still anything at this point is a win. I wonder if you multi-copy purchasers will get one or as many as you originally bought?

Hi,

I just wanted to express that Quined has nothing to do with what went wrong earlier and that the designer wants that the things that went wrong, go right now.

Anyway, Quined will help to achieve that all those who backed this game will receive their copy or copies of the game.

The artwork of the components and the rules have changed a little over time. I will soon upload the new rules in 4 different languages.

The cover of the box is a new design using the orginal picture of the box. The box now fits perfectly in Quined's Masterprint series.

It's definitely a good news ! Thx Quined to publish it!
BTW, do you know if the designer will publish (with the help of another publisher ?) the expansion for Vanuatu as well ?

This is great news! I love Vanuatu and was so disappointed that Massilia would not be published. Looking forward to ordering a copy in the future. Thanks!

Good to hear. I wonder if those (e.g. me) who pledged the Vanuatu/massilia double bundle on indiegogo will get both now that it's coming out?

It's very encouraging news. I funded the Vanuatu project to the tune of two Vanuatu games and one Massilia game, and had pretty much written the full $150 off.

Any chance the new rules will be not in "uppercase-only" font as the rules currently on BGG File section?

I ALWAYS FEEL YELLED AT WHEN READING UPPERCASE ONLY. A WHOLE RULEBOOK THIS WAY IS REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE TO READ!

This is very good news. I loved Vanuatu and was sorry to hear of all the crowdfunding trouble happening at the time. It did seem as though the designer had his problems, and when you have a one-man-band and the one man is unable to perform, for whatever reason, then there can be no progress.

Because I liked the design of Vanuatu so much I had my sympathies for Alain. Of course, I wasn't out any money like a lot of other unfortunates, so I understand their anger. I'm just pleased the guy seems to be re-emerging, and presumably attempting to make good the previous problems. I'm presuming this gesture of good will is being financed by Alain? Quined would be under no obligation to do so would they, and there's lots of other games they could publish without needing to saddle themselves with re-imbursing the previous buyers of this one.

If Alain is on his way back I wish him well and I hope his problems are now well behind him.

A lot of people gave him a lot of money. He never even attempted an explanation or said a word to them about why it fell through. Has any other board game project like this ever ended this way? With the designer just never saying anything to the people whose money he took? I'm genuinely curious. This has been an absolute worst-case scenario as far as any serious crowd-funded board game project I've heard of.

Well, it is very good the old orders will be honored. I have a question about recieving our orders, I assume there is a list of our names somewhere? Can we pick them up at Essen or will they be shipped? I'm not sure I still have any email confirmation it was so long ago and I had given up hope this project would see light...

Indeed, I recall that BGG community has once complained about possibly unbalanced god power(s).

And I hope for the artist, that the misspelling was corrected on the front cover before printing: "Maxime Brienne" not Briene :/
