Hi!

I just wanted to ask, I don't have this game yet, but I'm planning on buying it for Christmas. On FF page it says that the game is out of stock. Is it the same as out of print? Maybe someone knows is the game still in print or are there any rumors they will stop printing it?

As FFG have just announced another expansion, and the game seems to be doing well still, it's pretty certain that they'll be printing more core games.

The bigger the problem, the bigger a hammer you'll need!

Don't worry. This is a cash cow, so it will get a reprint, probably soon. Watch this page https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/upcoming/.

By the way, i recommend you also get the first expansion "Forsaken Lore" if you can. It adds on the variability in a big way.

Have fun, it's one of my top 3 games.

Would a "second edition" be something that could eventually happen? Updated rules and art? Maybe minis?

I doubt we still see a second edition for a long time as long as the game sells. Arkham Horror is still being reprinted after 10 years and the perception is that EH is at least as good as AH (or better depending who you ask).

Thanks for a hint. Is it the only expansion you definitely need or there are the others (I know there are many expansions!)?

The "Forsaken Lore" expansion brings "more of all.." to the game, allowing for a less repetitive and more immersive experience!

Many of BGG'ers (and me included) think it should have be included in the core box!!

Afterwards, if you really like the resulting gaming experience (it's a hard but really satisfatory game) then you should look at the other expansions.. there are more 2 small box expansions (more stuff...) and 2 + 1 future big box expansions (they bring a new board expansion and again more stuff, mainly related to the corresponding "theme".)

My suggestion... Go for CoreBox + FL. meeple

Eva have you managed to find it? It seems that it is out of stock here as well.

I agree with Sergio, you do need FL or you will be seeing the same cards too frequently. My favourite small expansion however is Strange Remnants which packs a lot of value into its small box and adds the all-important Focus mechanic, a simple addition that much improves the game.

It's not even awaiting reprint so it could be several months before they are back in stock. If I were looking for a copy I would check ebay frequently. They occasionally have pretty good deals but they don't last long.

Boardgameshop.eu have it in stock.

http://www.boardgameshop.eu/en/eldritch-horror.html



http://boardgamegeneral.eu/ too

AND http://adriaensen-speciaalzaak.be/index.php?controller=searc...=

AND http://www.sheepgames.be/index.php?main_page=product_info&cP...

And those are just shops in Belgium.

Also many others in Germany, Holland, UK, France.

In fact the game is almost available everywhere.


You know there is a DIFFERENCE between being out of stock with the publisher and the availability in retail shops and web shops.

Eldritch Horror was already reprinted 4 to 5 times and it will be reprinted at least the next decade, just like Arkham Horror.

It's not easy to find from U.S. online retailers right now, which is a significant piece of the market. You are certainly correct that it will be reprinted. A new expansion is coming out now, and other expansions are being reprinted, so it's a matter of when, not if - and I have no doubt that it will be 2017, although Q2 is the best we can realistically hope for.

Even Coolstuffinc? Those guys usually have it all. And of course the US is one of the most important markets and an innovator and major producer of boardgames.

But the original poster is Finnish which is why I pointed her to a European website.

Even CSI - "Out of Stock", while Amazon is asking $132.45.

Your response was, of course, the correct one - we Americans are much worse, in general, about thinking that our neck of the woods is "everywhere".

I get the impression you think I was being sarcastic, I really was not. The post was meant sincerely. I'm so used to Coolstuff having everything that I was just surprised that they wouldn't have such a popular American game in stock. I really wasn't being rude about the US, you make most of my favourite games after all.

Not at all - I was answering the question directly. I generally take questions at face value and answer as simply as possible, to the point where I suspect I belong "on the spectrum" of autism, as people say these days.

I agree that Strange Remnants is the best Expansion. When using SR I put all the SR cards at the top of the piles and in the Mythos Deck. You can tell which are the SR expansion cards by the SR icon in the lower left corner of the cards.

When I play the game w/o the SR expansion I remove all the SR cards.

I think it is a no-brainer that EH will be reprinted. I would love to see minis, especially of the monsters.

I strongly recommend buying the SR expansion since it is less likely it will be reprinted when it is out-of-stock.
