We know that MMP is not the company that does a lot of reprints but with reluctant enemies, a lot of new players are finding their way to the OCS system (me being one of them although I started with the blitzkrieg legend instead)

I heard rumors that Sicily and Tunesia will get reprinted. Wath about the other games that are OOP like Case blue, Hube's pocket or DAK. I know that the reprint of DAK2 wasn't a big succes but with the increase of players... the demand for those games might increase to

I fully agree with you! Some months ago I have to choose between Reluctant Enemies and Dark Valley to buy one of them, and after I see the OCS Starting guide I pick RE. After reading the rules I fall in love with OCS system, bought GBII and ready to buy Beyond the Rhine. If they reprint DAK2 or Case Blue I'll buy both of them for sure : )

I don't see how putting them up for P500 could hurt.

The OCS design crew have said that Tunisia can't be simply reprinted. It needs some redesign and updating first. I believe that work is underway but don't know where it fits in the overall schedule.

Right now Blitzkrieg Legend, Korea, GBII and Baltic Gap can all be bought at retail. Seems like plenty to keep any new OCS player busy for years.

I really can't understand the clamor for reprints although I admit that Tunisia 2 would be great to have since that game was the traditional intro to the series before RE.

Looks like Burma is getting a bit thin at retail. None of the three discount game vendors I have bought from still have it in stock (Coolstuffinc, Gamer's Armory and NWS Online).

You can still buy it for full price from MMP direct although I try to avoid paying list price for games. But if you are a completionist then it might be worth getting it now before it gets really hard to find.

Nevertheless, there is probably more OCS available to buy right now than at any time I can remember.

Six, 5, whatever. Separately or together, they don't add up to The One Game To Rule Them All: Case Blue.

I want my preciousess!

I'd like to get my hands on a copy of Sicily.

With that one I know I have a table big enough to play it.

I had two copies at one point. Sold both off. Interesting but least favorite so far.

Really? For people who don't have a particular game, think about it like the clamour for the first print run.

Most people can't pay $450 USD for a second hand copy of DAK 2.
