I know this game can be had as an import, for about $40 ... but is it coming to U.S. shores for a more reasonable price ... looks like a rather small game.

It's really not. It has a quad-fold board, thick cardboard hexes, and cards representing the characters that are as thick as the hexes. The price is a LITTLE high for what you get, but for an independent game producer, it's not that bad.

Still, a US-distributed edition of the game would be nice.

It does come with rules in English as well, I should point out. I am pretty impressed with the quality of the production.

We also own this game. I have a review of it here on BGG and the upshot of it is that the game is such a good experience that the price shouldn't bother too much. Similarly, the production values are quite high - the board's of a good stock and the game is almost worth it solely for the art direction. But in the end, the gameplay is unique and engaging enough that we had no regrets playing the price.

I did not bother waiting and just got the import. You may already know this, but it can be had for only $39.95 + $5.00 shipping in Canadian Dollars from http://www.levalet.com/. It ends up being around $40USD with shipping.

It is a very good game and I think worth the price.

The game is also sold-out throughout Europe!

Sadly so... anyone knows if there is a reprint on the way?

Reading your recent posts has been like dipping my bottom over and over into a bath of the silkiest oils and creams.

That having been said, I'd like to point out, as has been mentioned already, that it is easily available from several online retailers located in Canada. So Canadians, and enterprising Americans, do not need to wait for a reprint of this good game.

Got mine from fungamescafe for about 42 dollars American, delivered. Would have paid more if I had had to. I'll be buying a second copy to give as a gift when I can get it. Great game--challenging, tense, frustrating, addicting--more about thinking than luck. Get it as soon as you can.
