Just wondering if anyone had heard anything about when Colosseum is going to go live on Kickstarter?

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.
(TMG email newsletter Oct 29)

That "next newsletter" was sent today, but no new info on the when, only on the why.

The newsletter said there's been difficulty getting a manufacturing window opening. It is literally months out.

So rather than launch the kickstarter, then wait six months for it to actually be manufactured, they're holding off on the kickstarter so they can burn down closer to the actual manufacturer date.

Ideally, this means less waiting time between when the kickstarter is launched and when you actually receive the game. I think it might even be possible that slipping the kickstarter financing date will not slip the final shipping date, but that's my speculation, not the publishers.

Any chance there's a two variant this reprint?

Hmm. I wonder if it will be a re-skin or updated addition. I picked up a copy last year for around $80--a price I was happy to pay--and it has been worth every penny. My wife and I love this game and we get it to the table often.

When I bought it I had heard there were legal issues surrounding the reprint. I'm guessing those have been resolved.... But if so, why isn't DoW reprinting this?

That's my thought too. Why can't DoW just reprint? Did they have some kind of crazy deal on rights with the designer?

I think the main issue was that DoW didn't want to.

Michael,

No matter what game you release(art/components) and no matter the price there would be unhappy people.

I'm happy to see you talk here and that the Colosseum ks is happening in around 2 weeks.

Still no info through...

2 weeks is less accurate than about 2 months.

From Michael at TMG, they're about 2 months out. I've been more excited for this KS than any other so far, I'm starting my countdown!

I'm hoping for a 2 player variant in this reprint ... *fingers crossed*

They complained openly about high production costs...

TMG currently has a Kickstarter going for Thief's Market. It ends Feb. 13. Hopefully, we'll hear something shortly after that.

Hmm, they posted three photos, then took two of them down. One showed the new game board, and the other was a big logo...

Did anyone save the other two photos?

I only saw the one, but thought that it was a massive improvement.

Wish I had. I tried finding the cache folder on my computer but didn't have any luck.

It's definitely an improvement over the cartoony arena fighting cover art!

From the comments on FB, looks like it is just a re-print with no rule changes or additional variants. Too bad there isn't an official 2-pyr variant. Of course, the price will be key. (Can't say I think the new image is that much better than the one from last year. And doesn't look as nice as the original. But just my 2 cents on looks.)

$60 is pretty fair, I'm curious to see what the large edition with metal coins and etc. will be. That tends to add a LOT of price to the title. I'm figuring around $90 with metal coins.

Can't see how they'd make any profit at a mere $60. But only time will tell.
