From today's TMG newsletter:

Quote:
Colosseum
Wolfgang Kramer is a game design genius. Or at least that is what his games tell me, and last year at Essen Spiele, Mischa and I got the opportunity to sit down with him. Now, I rarely get nervous about interacting with specific individuals (or Starstruck) but this was one of those rare times.

Shortly after introductions, I expressed my love for El Grande while trying not to go on and on about it. Anyways, we chatted for awhile, got to know each other and discussed the game business. He reminds me a lot of people that are in my family.

Over the next several months after Essen, we expressed our interest in reprinting Colosseum. With it passing from Days of Wonder back to the designers, he might have expected nobody to want the game. Because how would anybody really expect to provide an experience that is as good as Days of Wonder?

Well, we are attempting to answer that question with an Emperor's Edition. This will be something like a collector's edition at a higher price and with higher quality components. With the cost of manufacturing being so high on such a game, we will be Kickstarting the game.

We currently have it on our schedule for Kickstarting October 27th through November 13th.


Here is the link to get a text message when the Kickstarter launches.

VERY exciting news! I just hope it will still be affordable with the manufacturing costs being so high.

Definitely writing these dates in my calendar!

Saw this in the recent newsletter 10/29/15

P.S. - If you are looking forward to the Colosseum Kickstarter, we have decided to move the launch of that into 2016. More about that to come in the next newsletter.

That works for my. Scythe, Headspace RPG, and Monster Truck Mayhem (on top of Secret Santa) are going to tap me out.

Glad I will have some recovery time.

Makes complete sense to wait on the reprint with all the monster Kickstarters that are out right now. The Others just finished, Scythe is happening, etc. I have no doubt that Colosseum would make its funding based on its pedigree alone, but it'll likely do a lot better when the storm blows over.
