Hello, fellow BGGer's! I was curious if anyone was aware of information regarding a potential reprint of this title. I heard somewhere that Tim may be working on another edition of the game, but I was unsure whether or not this was confirmed. I've certainly got my fingers crossed.

Thanks!

Heard the same rumor in passing, but nothing past that.

I'm trying to gauge interest - would you guys like a reprint of the original version? Or some new twist on it?

Potentially interested as long as it doesn't go through Game Salute. What sort of twist(s) were you thinking about?

I have the original. Maybe a new edition, expansion and upgrade set (if required)?

More characters, events and dishes.

I'm interested. Never played it before, as I can't find it anywhere reasonably priced. So I can't comment on what I'd like to see. I also don't want to see it go through Game Salute, as I assume that will just increase the price of the game unnecessarily.

I would like the original. Honestly, I'd just like to see it available again, new twist or otherwise.

I'd like a new version, specifically one that gives each player their own jobs, in a sort of XCOM or Space Cadets style. I appreciate that might be too big of an overhaul, though.

And it certainly wouldn't hurt to make the customer deck app-based, to save on some of the setup time and the admin between rounds.

(By the way, I would not say XCOM is a perfect example of a real-time game, I prefer Wok Star, but I do like those two aspects)

FWIW - I've introduced this game to a few people (I have the Game Salute kickstarter version), and many of them express interest in getting a copy. I suspect that a new print run would sell a fair amount of copies to folks who've had a chance to play the game but missed the chance to own it.

Also, as an owner of the game, I'd be interested in an expansion that changes things up a bit.

Honestly, the main draw to the game for me is the theme (who doesn't love running a Chinese take-out restaurant) and the real-time gameplay. I'm also drawn to the idea of investing in your business to grow it further in the future(whether new recipes, cooking utensils, etc) either with static or variable options each game, as either system would be fine by me. Beyond that, I completely trust your design decisions as you've yet to disappoint me with any of your games!

Would love either a new version or an expansion that works with the earlier version.

I'd be keen for a reprint of the original! Don't own a copy and, as others have said, it's currently hard to find for a reasonable price.

I'm also interested as long as Game Salute is not involved.

an expansion that would work with both versions would be lovely. Perhaps a whole deck of cards that would replace the originals would work?

I did not realize it was not readily available. I was looking to buy it today to have as a rainy day, indoor recess option for my classroom.

I would be interested in a reprint, or a reprint that changed it up but was still a complete game in a box (ie do not need bits from the original).

Why the hate for Game Salute? (idle curiosity, I am not trying to troll).

Wok Star

For the record, I haven't bought much from Game Salute kickstarters. I like to receive a box with my games and quality components.

don't worry, there is not a whole lot of love for GS, so it will be fairly one sided.

Tim is doing a third edition print of Wok Star and can be acquired through the Now Boarding kickstarter that is currently running. You can just pledge for Wok star if you don't want Now Boarding, or you can pledge to get it with Now Boarding.
