I was just writing an email to ZMan to inquire if they'd be reprinting Ladies of Troyes in 2015, only to notice even the original Troyes wasn't in the drop down list of the automated form they request you fill out.

I then browsed around the website, and saw no mention of Troyes at all.

Is there a new North American publisher?

I was wondering the same thing. I was looking for a copy of the rules but couldn't find anything on it. Only Tournay showed up on all my searches for Troyes.

I sent an email anyway, inquiring about all that. I kind of hope they did drop it, so long as somebody with a little more faith picks it up (big maybe).

Oh well. Sucks if so. Such a great game.

Wow. I'm surprised they'd drop it. It's not like we're talking about some obscure piece of crap here. Troyes is in the top 50 and would probably be ranked a little higher if the iconography wasn't so scary to newbies. You can play it on BGA as well, where it is wonderfully implemeneted. Really surprising.

It's really weird. Either they gave up on a game that didn't earn them enough or there were some license issues between Z-man & Pearl Games.

no NA publisher has picked up DEUS ...

either
1) pearl has decided to publish in NA themselves like portal games
or
2) they are changing from ZMAN to someone else and hence ZMAN lost troyes.

either way i hope they redo ladies of troyes, ive been searching ages for a decently priced version

BoardGame Warehouse has it for pre-order at US$33 (at least for the current sale).


Odd that. I emailed ZMan about all of this, but received a response that they'd be out of the office until Jan 5th (tomorrow, interestingly enough). I suspect a true response will be long in the coming, as I'd imagine they'll have a mountain of emails to reply towards.

I got a reply from ZMan. It isn't worth reprinting as a quote. They ignored my inquiry about Troyes being dropped and merely told me they had no plans to reprint Ladies of Troyes anytime soon.

Perhaps Asmodee's new(?) ownership of Pearl Games hinted at here:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/38070/asmodee-has-appa...

will mean we'll see a new printing with Asmodee's label.

And it's a real shame. Troyes is a gem and Ladies is the kind of expansion I like.
