I just went there. This seems too good to be true. Have you ever ordered from them?

Edit: I ordered; we'll see.

Ordered from them many times. They usually have good deals on Oprey as they are shipping from UK which is where the publisher is located.

Might be a pre-order, but they usually show the countdown so not sure. I got a confirmation email on the order. I will update when I get a shipping one.

Good thing they didn't reprint the extremely rare Gibson edition.



Waiting for my edition to hit $150 in another year or two.

Thanks for posting. I remember playing this endlessly back in Northern Ireland in the 70's. Looking back it was a blast, but when I revisited it about 10 years ago, it wasn't as I had remembered. But hey, life is so different through kids eyes. I really hope they have tried to balance it out and I'm really, really tempted to pick this up again just for the nostalgia.

I owned it as well back then, great in comparison with Monopoly but probably pales in comparison with more modern games.

Is that a Joey Dunlop helmet as your avatar?

Anybody know the changes in this new edition? I never played the original, but These past few comments have me worried the game will feel a bit dated...

Osprey has posted a video highlighting the rules changes (which doesn't help too much if you don't know anything about the original ).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAMLISaMHE8

Osprey will be including the original rules and the updated rules.

I also found this quick interview to be interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jq8gci2jWoo

It's a Senna helmet, but for sure it could easily be a Joey Dunlop one. Where I grew up he is/was a legend. Amazing rider. I saw him at the NW200 road race a few times. Great memories.

Agree with you on the game. Compared to modern games and mechanics it can't really compete (at least the old version), but I could be good with friends and a few beers!

Well, as you received yours now, you can see for yourself.

Someone's said it is purposefully a remastering rather than a redo, and I think that's a great way to put it. New detail is there for both effect and clarity. Like a beloved movie on VHS or DVD that's got a Blu-Ray Special Edition update. (I mean a good one; not what happened to Star Wars.)
