So after selling giant maps on the kickstarter on the proviso that they were a limited run kickstarter exclusive (as stated on the page), Academy Games are now printing another run of the maps? Is this even legal?

Dont recall them ever saying they were exclusive to kickstarter. They were a limited run, so if you wanted to be guaranteed to get them you needed to buy them as an add-on.

This does not prevent them from doing another run later.

It had a green K on it, which they used to show Kickstarter exclusivity, and said Limited Run underneath.

It's misleading if nothing else.

The big green K was not used for exclusivity, unless it had "EXCLUSIVE!" underneath it. There was a version of the K for the Atlas expansion, which is also not exclusive.

There was only like 3 exclusives.

Kickstarter exclusives have been sold for years. You can also find them in the BGG store every now and again. The "exclusive" is that you get them with your KS copy, whereas you have to pay for them outside the KS.
As far as the map is concerned: if there is a demand, why would a company not try and meet it?

In the mean time, I just want my game to arrive.

After backing this on kickstarter and not
getting the giant map i'm glad the're thinking
of doing a reprint,it will probably cost me more than if i had
backed it on kickstarter,but you should be pleased that other
people are getting an opportunity to buy it.
I dont get this "i've got it and i dont want anyone else to have it"
nonsense.

Why is it important to you that no one else receive the same product? Won't that make it harder to find people to play the game with?

The only exclusives were the at-war tokens, the peace tokens, and the Odysseus token.

Buildings, large map, and poker chips were limited run (i.e. not in production continuously). The first run of the maps seems to have been popular enough to demand another run, which I assume will also be limited. And if that sells out and there is still enough demand, perhaps there will be another limited run. That, I believe, is how limited run works in this instance and it would probably work for the buildings in that regard too, I assume.

Academy Games can make the maps and buildings, but iirc the chips are Asyncron's, so whether those will show up again is anybody's guess.

Good lord, it's amazing what some people will get worked up about.

I snagged the big-map, the resource-chips, the Buildings package and the Atlas Expansion.

They really upgrade the upgrade (the re-issue from Academy Games has a beautiful map and excellent resource-chits.)

Every Mare Nostrum owner should get them, just make sure you have a big table to play on.

They held back the Canadian shipments until the war and peace markers arrived. I got the markers with my Canadian pledge last week.

Same with the eu shipments
held back delivery until the war/peace markers were available
to deliver with the game
hence that's why we received the the game only last week

Some of us didn't. Some of us are still waiting. I don't care what size of map I get; ANYTHING is better than what I have right now.

AFAIK, the only KS exclusive they promised was that I'd be kept waiting longer than all the retail customers.

I really didn't think so many people would get so annoyed by that! It was just something which mildly irritated me for a few minutes...

Any news on when or even if a reprint of the giant map will happen? Any guesses?

I'm really wishing I had picked up the map when I saw it, The expansion won't even be available until December. It could be a long wait for the map.

I have the Giant Map and it's .. well let's say it could be better.

It smells horribly like rubber and ink, it is wrinkled on one side and compared to the "normal" map it's very much blue and red.

Reprint? Please do not.
But, what about a redesign of the map?
