Is it a moose that became a detective ? Or a detective who searches for moose?

You seem to be the one with the information. Where did you get the info from?

I noticed that Mr Jack in NY had its listings disappear from the online stores, and made sure I picked up a copy, I wonder if they're going to merge them. :/

I heard it in the Live Dice Tower podcast from Essen. They were talking with Pierô, who is said that he worked on the art for the new edition.

Everything is relative to perception, and your perception is limited.

Oh, it would be cool to see what Piero would do with this game's art direction!

Mr Jack is a pretty perfect game though. I don't know how you could make it better. Merging in all of the off-shoots is one. But my mind started wandering last night wondering if a 4-player version is feasible.

We never managed to adapt the game for more than 2 players...

I want just to say some words in order not to create too much expectations..
yes, a 10th anniversary version is on progress
But don't wait to major changes. Mr Jack became year after year a kind of standard for asymmetrical 2 player game. So, it has to say (quite) the same. People don't have to learn anything new.
The main changes concerns artwork.

Piero works to refresh all the artwork, to celebrate this 10th anniversary next year.

I don't think I'd want any of the game play to change. I'd be quite happy with new artwork (even though I liked the old artwork), and all the expansions included. More characters are always nice.

I'm quite OK with that. I don't need to run to buy a new edition, but if a 10th anniversary edition gets all the non-believers to finally try it, all the better. I'll go buy Raptor instead.

Any plans for an iPad version? This would work so great on tablet with asynchronous play.

Yes, I´ve tried that site. But I don't like playing on the computer. It is so much easier to play on the tablet. Especially asynchronous games, and you can bring the tablet with you, and just get a notification when it's your turn. And I would also like to see a version that was a little bit more polished than this. It doesn't matter for gameplay, but it makes it easier to lure others inn.

I have heard there are some minor changes besides artwork and if they can balance it better like New York (which is my favorite game) then I'm in... The original is the only one I don't have and Fantome and New York are in my top five games already.

I hope the expansion is included. I already own all the Mr Jack games, but I'll buy this again if it is a better version.

What about Mr. Jack extension? Is it going to be included? And what about Mr. Jack in New York? Would we see new edition of it as well in the near future?

Well, I guess the pictures answer your questions. Doesn't look like the new edition includes the extension.

Just went to buy it here as I can't find it for sale anywhere else.
€26 delivery to Ireland though! Could probably get it from the US for cheaper than that.

Does anyone have any other sites where it might be available to buy?

As you may know by now, the revised edition can be purchased at CSI and Amazon, CSI being cheaper. We bought our copy yesterday and played our first game ... very enjoyable. We'll be playing this again this evening.

Good luck, and enjoy.
