So I just recently got Eclipse, and I quite liked the game and looked into expanding it to 9 players, but I see that (at least here in the US), the prices for this expansion have recently spiked to the point that it seems cheaper to order a copy internationally. Is this game out of print and I can expect this price increase to be permanent, or is this just some sort of weird distribution hiccup?

Well, almost every game is "out of print" a moment after a batch is delivered
I don't see any reprint info, but I wouldn't be worried as they reprinted it more than once.

I know that the game makers are still exploring ways to support this game. No clue what that means for specific expansions.

I'm almost sure that my local game store has some (The Whiz in Westborough, MA).

You can always call and see if they'll ship it to you.

The manufacturer's website shows it as 'in production'. I don't recall what their typical lead time is, but my best guess is that we will see it restocked at the usual retailers in two to four months.

I kept trying to find out as well on the reprints but luckily I just happened to stumble on the expansions at a local gaming store that I rarely visit.. They had happened to have the expansions just sitting there for a while but had sold out of the base game.. My wife gave the blessing and ended up buying both Shadow of the Rift and Rise of the Ancients expansions.. Never been that excited to see them in a local store after looking for the past couple of months online.

Did you have any news about it? The only expansions available so far I see are brunt at an outrageous price...

Will it come back anytime soon?
