I'm sure there's more than comes to the top of my head, but I looked and I noticed how many really big desired titles are coming back out this year.

Letters of Whitechapel
Fury of Dracula
El Grande (well it's a big box but still)
Mission Red Planet
Arctic Scavengers
KeyFlower
Tigris & Euphrates too?

There's definitely more, but what do you think? Seems like many of these games people were waiting years for and now BAM all of these games drop this year.

Keyflower never really went away, Arctic Scavengers only got a wider release last year. Letters from Whitechapel was reprinted only 2 years ago and has been fairly easy to get since then.

Fury of Dracula, El Grande and T&E I'll grant. Samurai is missing as well.

That one I thought was an oddball for a reprint. Never had that much of a following to begin with. Is kind of just an OK game.

I do agree, Knizia Samurai would be a good reprint.

A 2015 reprint of a 2014 game isn't really that notable. Not when we're talking about some games that haven't been reprinted for many years.

Nuclear War has never been out of print. The kickstarter was for an anniversary edition. You can get the standard edition pretty easily.

Sounds like publishers are starting to get a little smart. Rather than printing anything that answers to the word 'game' and has a rules sheet they are going back to some games that actually sold a while ago and are republishing them. Given that there are so many games coming out now and most people (including publishers) won't admit to having heard of them in no more than three months this is likely a safe route for publishers. Why take a chance on something no one has heard of when you have a game with some name recognition and a sales history!

Samurai is being reprinted though, it is currently 'on the boat' from FFG. Probably early November/Late October landing?

Troyes is my only sought after not seeing reprint atm.
