I have seen used and new copies sold at very high prices, and stores where the price remain reasonable it's out of stock.
So, is this out of print or something?

My wife just purchased this game for my birthday a few weeks ago from Amazon. She didn't tell me how much it cost but she sure didn't spend what it is currently listed as.

It must be out of print.

Yes, it's currently out of print.

Roxley is currently in the process of fulfiling the Santorini Kickstarter, and in one of the updates they mentioned that they were having more copies of Super Motherload printed so that they could combine shipping from China.

They offered Super Motherload in the Santorini pledge manager as well, so I imagine it's not long until it's back in retail.

Josh is right! And thanks for checking.

We are currently out of stock for our American supplier (other areas have copies, still) but we are hoping to have stock available again for October.

Nothing is in the cards at the moment, Dan! I wouldn't say it's *never* going to happen - anything is possible and we have had a number of people asking (which we appreciate) - but we've got a pretty full roster for the next little while already...

I'd just like to chime in and say that I recently discovered this game and it's one of my favourites! I'd love an expansion if it ever comes out!

I have spoken to him since this post, and it's my understanding that some new ideas are indeed being experimented with... but it has a lot of things in the queue in front of it. So I wouldn't expect an announcement in the short term.

Well it's a great game and one that deserves more attention.. Hope you can get back to it sooner than later. Cheers

This is great news. I had this one in my wishlist for a long time and screwed around and let it sell out. I'll be sure to not let it sell out again before I pick up a copy.

Cool to hear Paul. Zee from The Dice Tower just reviewed it in Board Game Blender. As a lover of steam punk and deckbuilders this spiked my interest.

Put a copy behind the counter for me for Christmas I'll pick it up then. :-)

I know that copies are supposedly in route to the US, but I wonder (hope) if they'll make it in time for Christmas.

I don't have an exact date to update you with, unfortunately... it's still en route, so all we can do is estimate. Cross your fingers, everybody!

The game is in North America, but hasn't yet been sent to all of our regular distribution channels yet. So you could place an order at our website right now, or at your FLGS, but I'm not sure how long it will take to get to you (before Christmas is extremely unlikely at this point).

I'd estimate if you give us another week or two, things should be back to "normal". But our main focus right now is still on Santorini, so this has to be gotten to when it can be gotten to.

(Hey, did you all see the third print run box cover Gavan just uploaded?)

Box art looks amazing. I've had this game on my radar for a long time but it's been out of print. Can't wait to pick up a copy once it gets in stock in the coming weeks.
