Any plans to reprint in the near-future? Doesn't seem like it was ever easily available in the US. With its minimal components, and dare I say even using a paper board, it seems like U&P could do a large print run at low cost, actually distribute through mainstream online stores at under $20, try and generate more buzz a 2nd time around, marketing especially to all the Napoleon's Triumph fans, and do really well. And there seems to be the potential to create a whole series of games using the same system. I can't imagine that U&P is surviving on FUBA sales.

Not every company, especially smaller one, are looking to put in all the effort you describe. Perhaps they are happy with their current success? But I don't really know.

Reprints are a really tricky business decision. You really better be sure there is a ton more demand for your product. Going to a large scale production run can of course reduce costs per unit but you still need to sell them. I printed an extra 1000 of my first game because that next thousand was so cheap. Never sold them and took a loss.

There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

For what it's worth, I'll buy one.

Or if not a physical reprint, how about a print-and-play version? The only component that any True Wargamer* doesn't already have at home is the corps cards, right?

I originally thought the game was available as print and play due to the very few components this game had and the size of the map.

As PnP it could be achievable. Wooden pieces are easy to find, or even make, else there could still be printable tokens.

Agreed - if the publisher in fact has no plans to reprint it again, it would be great if they officially made it available for print and play, since it is so component-light. Especially in light that they approved for the Austerlitz variant files to be posted.

If they do not want PnP, could it be at least game crafters printable. It all depends if the size of the map and the cards match those of game crafters.
