Will Crash Games sell the rights to Finca so someone else can print it?

He says he won't be publishing Finca around the 2:35 mark.

There was a Kickstarter aimed at helping save Crash Games. Unfortunately it did not earn enough to do so and the company is no more.



To answer the OP I'm not sure how it works. I don't know if he owns the rights outright, or if he had purchased the right to use the game system and stuff. I don't know if he can hold on to them, or if there us a clause that states he needs to use them or lose them.

It's a shame, I was looking forward to it (and was hoping for a Hawaiian retheme)

Edit: ninja'ed

No new theme was ever confirmed.

Well snag a copy sooner than later I guess.

Shame about Crash. That is capitalism though.

A little shocked Crash would not team up to get the new Finca made. I am not a financial advisor nor a lawyer, so I do not know if it would've been profitable for an alliance/acquisition with Crash of Games.

With Finca coming up to its 10th birthday, I would be surprised if there's no other company doing a big re-release.

No new theme was ever confirmed.

IIRC there was a tweet from BGG saying it would be set in North America, but yes, there's no other source for the new theme.

I remember there talk of that however the game hadn't gotten anywhere in production so it wasn't confirmed. In the announcement thread there was a lot of concern about that theme being more boring. I believed there was the chance for something with more interesting items.

In anyway it's moot now.

Patrick (who basically was Crash) started a new job and is probably busy with that and the various details of shutting down a company. It might still happen but at this point it's probably too early to know. It wasn't that long ago he was trying to save Crash Games so not surprising if he hasn't explored those options far enough to make an announcement.
