This game is sold out from all the online retailers. Nothing at CSI, FunAgain Games, or Miniature Market. It appears to be available to order direct from Stronghold games, so why isn't it in distribution?

If it is out of stock then when is the reprint coming? I have looked for a news release or a post on the forum that might say when we can expect this to be back on shelves and I've found nothing.

Killing me.

I'm headed to the Maitland CSI headquarters this weekend. They show out of stock on the website, but the inventory on the floor is kept separate from the warehouse (don't ask, but they have had 3 copies of Great Western Trail on the floor for the past three weeks, yet the website shows "out of stock"). Anyway, the last time I was in there, they had a copy of Fabled Fruit on the floor. Happy to grab that for you if it's still there if you are willing to send me paypal plus shipping.

Evan, thanks so much for the offer. I have an order sitting on hold at CSI as I type this. I can't help but wonder if I couldn't call the store and have the game added to my existing order.

If that doesn't work I guess I will sit tight and wait. I have waited for I don't know how many years for Notre Dame to come back into print and this year I am going to be rewarded on that front. Surely I won't have to wait that long for Fabled Fruit. When it gets the Spiel des Jahres nomination they are bound to rush another print run! whistle

I'll let you know if it's still there. There was only one copy the last time I was in the store, which was 1/13.

It's a great game. I love it.

The English and German first print runs are sold out.

The next production is scheduled for end of February. (Add another 4-6 weeks for the shipment.)

As you can see in the versions section, we added another 5 localized editions (one is still in the approval line).


This localization work took some time, but Fabled Fruit will be back soon!

Thank you for your patience!

This is great news, especially since I was unable to add that store copy to my existing ON HOLD order. I just needed to have a date to watch for to keep the home fires burning. Fingers crossed that this one will be hitting shelves in time for my family to buy it for me for Mother's Day.

I've dug around on the Stronghold website and can find nothing about the reprint. It is not on their release schedule for 2017, it is not on their pre-orders, and under games it simply says "sold out" so none of this is encouraging in the least.

I am hopeful that the reprint actually took place at the end of February as promised and that it will be out in April, but I suspect this might be a European release and not for the US. If so I guess I will try to acquire from Amazon.de?

The 2nd edition US copies are leaving the German warehouse just now.

The Polish already are in the shops in Poland.

The Dutch, Spanish and French versions will start to sell soon.

The German 2nd edition is in the stores for a week by now and sell nicely.

Thanks for the good news, Henning! Do you have any ideas who in the US will be selling them? Neither Coolstuffinc nor Funagaingames list them for preorder yet....

This is *seriously* annoying. Why won't they print more copies of this game?

They did but they got caught up in shipping/customs. But they should be in stores soon.

I appreciate the good news. However, if they are through customs, why are online stores not making them available for preorder yet? Methinks they're still "stuck in customs.", or else Cool Stuff Inc. hasn't heard that they're through customs yet?

Ugh, the waiting goes on and on. I can't figure out why this has not shown up for pre-order anywhere. I worry that when it does arrive they will be sold out before I get my back-in-stock notice.
