Any idea how many English versions are being made? I really want this, but I really don't want to spend more more on games for a while.

The anticipation has been so high for this that I can see it selling out very quickly. If that's the case, and if they plan only one print run*, then I might just go for it now.

(*yeah, that might not make sense, but I've long given up trying to see any sense in the decisions games publishers make)

I have it on good standing that the initial print run was 2000.

I'm not an expert in game printing at all, but it seems like a really low number somehow for such a classic.

That does sound on a low side.
But you have to keep in mind that there are already many older copies out there.

In either case I hope it manages to find a way to my FLGS

It is a low print run, but that's English only. But I don't think it's going to be a one and done print. When supplies run low, it's likely another 2k-4k will be printed. It's been out over week and there are some still in warehouse.

Also, worth pointing out, it's a big box. Price alone will have others looking elsewhere. Factor in the secondary market for used copies and that plays a small role. It's a great game but it's not new hotness. Who knows?
