Hello all. I have been playing eldritch horror with my friend's copy of the game, and I really want to buy it for myself. The problem is that the forsaken lore expansion cannot be found anywhere in the states. I have called all the gaming stores in my area, and have done extensive online searches. I have been told that it is out of print right now.

My question is does anyone know if fantasy flight will be reissuing this expansion, and if so, do you happen to know when??

A good place to look is FFGs upcoming list

This shows a reprint due in Q4 this year, currently on the boat from the printers.

I have to admit...

I gave in and overpaid for a copy on eBay (~$30 including shipping). I've been checking every other day or so and these are basically nonexistent on eBay as well, so I just gobbled it up.

I'm new to board gaming.

Is it common for games to go out of print for long periods of time? Even popular & current games?

It's common for less popular games to go out of print. It's unusual for popular FFG games to go 'out of print' at all. What happens is that stocks get depleted and there may be a delay before FFG gets more copies out into distribution channels. This is almost certainly what has happened here: a popular game has sold out and a reprint hasn't yet hit distribution. You may have jumped the gun, but if you really couldn't wait, you paid what you considered to be an acceptable price through secondary markets.

Yes, especially if you see the name "ZMan" on the box.

And, as stated above, this wouldn't be exactly what is meant by the expression "out of print," but I understand what you mean (and the upshot is the same whilst the drought is in effect).

For anyone who is really desperate (US only?), there is at least 1 copy for sale right now from an Amazon retailer here: http://www.amazon.com/Eldritch-Horror-Forsaken-Lore-Expansio...

But it'll cost you $38 + $2 shipping.

edit: Looks like someone gobbled it up already.

I picked up a spanking new FS yesterday here in Sweden. So it should be becoming more available now.
