Since this is the 3rd map pack and 1 and 2 are still available, I assume (hope) this is just between printings, and not going away for good. Anyone have any insight?

This is pretty common in the game industry. A lot of companies, especially FFG, often run out of copies between print runs. It's more practical than risking too much money tied up in inventory. Ticket to Ride is too popular for Africa to go out of print.

You can probably find copies at your local game stores.

It's still in stock at less popular online stores.

This one has it listed at retail, with free shipping at $40.

Thanks, I've never seen that site before. I might have used it when I was looking for Marklin. Though I had a great experience with a bgg seller.

the stated site is 'out of stock'

anyone know of any game stores with this game 'in stock' and not for the ridiculous prices on amazon and ebay

It appears to be coming back soon as Amazon allows you to pre-order a copy, a recent change, at $24.99.

That's surprising, at this point I figured it was done. (I ended up getting it from a not so local but friendly game store).

What I have heard this week is that this Expansion has been due back in the UK for some time, but has been held up for a number of months. The speculation from my supplier appears to be it is stuck in a freighter which can't dock due to some distributor issues. Doesn't entirely make sense, but I have heard of ships being held back before.

Probably somebody lacks the necessary locomotive cards to claim the route...

Are you saying it's rumored to be in print in the UK but is held up, or that it is held up and will be in print in the UK and US?
