I don't even see this game listed on the Mayfair website or in their news section yet the BGN website said it was due out in September?

Hey JJ, We received this update from our distributor last Friday, it's slated to be a November release.

(The Downfall of) Pompeii is set in 79 A.D. at the foot of the infamous volcano. The goal of the game is to attract friends and family to visit by drawing cards, then save as many as possible once the Vesuvius card is drawn. Pompeii includes 140 citizen playing pieces in four colors, 61 game cards, 45 lava tiles, one volcano, one cloth bag, and one game board. The game is for 2-4 players ages 10 and older, and retails for $45.00

Cardhaus reports Nov 20.

Look upon Pompeii ye mighty games ranked higher, and despair!

(hmmm, maybe that's the wrong quote to use ...)

If you can't wait, the German version is playable as is. No text on the components, so you just need to print out an English rulebook from the Amigo website and you're good to go.

As far as I can tell, though... the original version isn't available for sale anywhere.

Thanks for all the responses.

The theme alone makes this a tempting purchase, sadly I didn't have enough time to try the copy sitting in the very small Mayfair booth in Essen and thus resisted the temptation to buy...for now. It looked good and I believe they did have copies for sale but figured it was coming to N.A. anyway. J

This is where I got my copy from about 18 months ago.

It's a fab game!
