Heh heh, so hard not to be skeptical of any reprint news, since usually it ends up as a situation like this. They still have the 'aquired the rights' page up from back in October of 2006, along with the re-assuring line:

'The game is currently in playtesting and should be available for preorder shortly. Check back for more information which we'll post as it becomes available!'

Most excellent! When shortly means well over a year (with still no new information mind), then I think that a 2010 estimate is probably too ambitious. At the very least they should remove that web page announcement, and put it back up when they are more serious about getting it reprinted...if ever.

Check out the talk at consimworld.
http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?14@62.VjCwd7RuGrU.22@.1dd16...

It's much more recent than the BGG information or the news announcement on MMP's site. From geekmailing the developer I get the impression that the game is in final prep (artwork) for being available for preorder.

I couldn't find any information on the MMP website about this reprint, and no new news on Consimworld either. Anyone have any idea whether this game is still "Go" or just more vaporware like the Up Front reprint?

Ah, it seems that things are indeed moving along on this title and you are quite right that they are still working on it. Do check out the link above to the ConsimWorld discussion to keep tabs on things. It looks like this will resurface in a bit on the preorder page once more counter and map artwork is completed. It seems that our wait may be rewarded soon.

Heh, and once more showing that patience is a virtue.

I once found this game for 25 US cents in a thrift store, complete and unpunched. Fun game, worth every penny.

I like coming to this thread every few months, just to sigh and get a good laugh.

Well, we're half way through 2009 and no one has posted anything on this thread since Dec of 2008, so I will.

I have no prediction, news, forcast, update. Simply a comment. I would like to see this game reprinted during my lifetime.

Well, I'm not sure...

Either I missed the window of that posting on their preorder page and the game is now either finished and invisible, or the project has been cancelled...

Or once again we are shown that there is some kind of weird time distortion that goes on over at MMP, as I can safely say that it's been a bit longer than 'the next couple of weeks' and I don't see that up for preorder.

Still nothing happened.
The CSW folder for this one is very quiet, too.

Too bad...

Ah, it's been a year since I mused fondly about my twenty five cent thrift store finding. Which was two years after this thread was started.

And the MMP preorder page is still devoid of S&S.

I kind of get disappointed these days when MMP gets the license to reprint a game. It means we can be waiting anywhere up to 10 years for the game to go on pre-order. After we wait another 2-3 years for the pre-orders to reach 500, we have to wait another number of years for it to be actually printed.

Maybe my grandchildren will be playing this and Up Front 2000?
