Check the official web site. That was always the only place to get the game.

Thanks for the interest Brian. I am currently doing some restructuring and so sales are on hold. If and when I resume, it will be announced here. Feel free to geekmail me if you'd like to play on boardspace sometime.

This is an insta-buy for me as soon as it becomes available again.

"As soon as"...not "if"...that would be nice!
Of course in that case an insta-buy for me too.

This game is my favorite abstract, and I recommend it at every opportunity. Hopefully it will be reprinted!

Thanks Rich. I look forward to owning this some day. I have subscribed to the game page and have setup a page monitor on the order page for your game website.

Any updated news on a reprint?

Judging by the success of the Santorini kickstarted, abstract games are hot now.

...if you paste on a theme and inject a bunch of dubiously balanced asymmetric powers.

I'm glad I bought a copy of Entrapment when I did!

That's funny Robert, I was just thinking I'd be cool with someone doctoring up the game, if they could then pull off what's been achieved with Santorini. Ha, probably saddens you to hear me say that, but it would get the damn thing to a much broader audience for sure (hopefully sans asymmetric powers though. I'll be sure to let folks know if and when I get up and running again. In the !meantime, if someone wants to hook me up with an interested publisher, that'd be great....

Well I'm glad the game is made out of wood considering it may have to last me a good while

It's a great game that certainly deserves to be published

Well, I'm a sucker for special powers a asymmetric start positions, however imbalanced, as they bring fresh strategies. The good thing about the Santorini cards is that they almost all completely change victory conditions and make you look at the game in a new way. Doing the same thing for Entrapment would be quite fun, even if the original game were more balanced.

Christ, now I'm beset by visions of an unholy hybrid/chimera of Entrapment and Santorini. Would either be great, or a rube goldbergian catastrophe!

Another abstract game called Tak just finished on Kickstarter and raised $1.3 million. [url]https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cheapassgames/tak-a-bea...]Tak Kickstarter[/url]

It doesn't have much theme but it has a cool back story being based upon a game from a novel.

I think Entrapment could do just as well. Especially if you make a special pledge level with a $500 wood box. They partnered with Wyrmwood to make the boxes.

Just a thought. Jump while the iron's hot and you never know.

Entrapment is a beautiful looking abstract. Hopefully it will get another run for people who would like a copy.

I also recently found the game (on boardspace) and hope it will become available again. If you are still looking for publishers, here are some that publish wooden versions of abstract games:

Gerhards based in Germany, specializes in wooden abstracts.
Marbles, under parent company Spin Master. They seem to mostly publish wooden games for children, recently made a very nice set of Hnefatafl.
Gigamic published the game that Entrapment is most frequently compared to, Quoridor. It seems that they haven't published a new game in a while though.
Blue Orange Games published a few new abstracts, some of them in wood.
Huch! publishes a lot of new abstracts, though not many in wood.
Foxmind seems to collaborate with Huch, but also made a few wooden abstracts on their own.

Thanks for taking the time to provide this compilation. I do think it may be time to send out some feelers, and your list will assist in this.
