I wouldn't consider Fury of Dracula out of print considering FFG is reprinting it.

So is Mission Red Planet, but you need a catchy title or you get nothing

I would consider them both OOP until Fantasy Flight begins shipping.

Both games are clearly deep into the manufacturing process, and possibly even on a boat.

But, I always take reprint announcements with a grain of salt. In the past, there have been announcements of reprints by FFG that never materialized; namely, I'm thinking of Blood Royale.

Additionally, some reprints don't live up to their original editions. FFG's reprint of Merchant of Venus (second edition) supports 1-4 players; the original Avalon Hill edition supports 1-6.

Mission Red Planet is "at the printer" so I'd estimate 2-3 more months before release

Fury of Dracula is "in development" so don't expect it for at least 4 months, 6 months would not be surprising

Nonetheless, the fact that these games are in the process of being reprinted means that they aren't OOP as commonly meant. This isn't your last chance to ever get these games. Certainly not like how Fury of Dracula appeared to be until recently.

The use of OOP here may "trick" people who haven't heard of the reprints (which some thought would never be reprinted). They may see this and think these games are only ever going to be available on the secondary market.

Jesus, guys, he called this out in every listing such as Fury of Dracula. Its not like he's being deceptive.

Cut the guy some slack.

When I originally looked at the auction, he hadn't. I'm glad to see that he did.

You guys bring up some excellent points. Of which I agree with. Learning as I go.

There are still a couple OOP titles so I get to keep the header.

Also, I would say an edition can be OOP. The 1st edition of Runewars is far superior to the revised edition for one simple reason...3d Mountains. And when I initially sought it out that part was very important. So to say an edition is OOP is valid (but should be clarified).
