I got an email from the French publisher of SOST today. They said: "Regarding SOS Titanic, our distributor Game Salute should get new copies in early January. They are on their way to the US. Thus you will be able to order from them then."

I then emailed Game Salute, where it was listed as Sold Out. I sent them a copy of the publisher's email and they are now taking preorders.

Fantastic news!
Sadly it will cost me 35 dollars shipped. I really want this one but I'll have to think on it a bit.

I broke down and bought the German version from Amazon:

This is good news. I'm curious if they changed anything in the reprint or just printed more copies of the same. Other than the 'collapsible boat' image, I haven't heard of anything serious that would affect game play.

What's wrong with the Collapsible Boat image? I haven't heard anything before, and I just searched the Forums and didn't see anything there, either.

It's not an issue really. It's a picture of an overturned life boat with people clinging to it. It's not in the images but you will see it pointed out in the live play video. Since the home page of the publisher doesn't mention anything I have to assume it's a straight up reprint and not a '2nd edition'.

I heard from Game Salute today about SOS Titanic. They got a small shipment. There are some going out as soon as the weather breaks to people who preordered from them. The rest, they say, will be available on their Amazon store starting in February.

That would be awesome if they were able to ship some soon! I preordered mine back in early December, and cannot wait to get the game in my hands sooner than expected.

Thanks for the information Carl!

About a half hour ago I got a notice from them that the game is in the mail. If you preordered it from them in December, yours is probably on the way, too.

Wow Carl, you were right on! I just happen to check my email prior to seeing your reply, and low and behold, my email shows I have my copy in the mail.

What a great surprise to see this and now I will be waiting by that mailbox until my copy comes.

YAY!

Here's one thing I'd like to have. If it weren't for the book, you could really carry this game around as a deck of cards. I've been thinking about making some cards to take the place of the book. Have a card for each compartment..maybe rotate it from 3 to 2 to 1, or flip it over. It would almost be nicer to have three separate cards for the first compartment, for example, with the corresponding picture on each.
