Is there any news out there about if and/or when FFG or another company is going to reprint this game? Impossible to find for a reasonable price in my searchings.

Did the last printing do well enough for anyone to want to try?

Pete (has no idea, since his version is the Eurogames one)

You can track FFG's status of titles here: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/upcoming/

Currently it is "Awaiting Reprint" as of March 2016. Which means:

Quote:
This product is currently out of stock at FFG. We are planning to reprint this title, but a date for additional production has not yet been set.


So it is on the list which means there is hope. But it has been there for 16 months now so that hope diminishes.

I was in the same boat, I waited a whole year for a reprint and nothing. Luckily I stumbled upon an eBay vendor selling a Chinese version of it. I ordered it, printed out some English rules, and just played it last weekend, and it was fantastic. There are no Chinese words printed on the cards or board, so it worked out great.

Here's where I got it from:

That looks very much like an unauthorised copy... As far as I know there is no FFG Chinese edition or am I mistaken?

Chinese version of this game is rip-off. Players in Taiwan all know about this when we talk about this game.

I ordered a copy from Ali Express based on people in this forum saying it's probably legit in a different topic ( https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1747274/fake-versions-ebay ). Note that, assuming it's the same product that the ebay seller is selling, the photos are incorrect and it's NOT an FGG Chinese edition (which may not legitimately exist), but is the one listed here: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameversion/138867/chinese-ed...

Sad to hear about that...

No one dare to bring the Chinese version of this game to play at any board game stores.

Another thing to tell from is that the Chinese version is only $8 USD or sometimes even lower. And the English version is about at least $20 USD, which is 3 times the price of the rip-off version.

Besides, it's in simplified Chinese characters. Legit Chinese versions of board games are made in traditional Chinese characters.

Well, I definitely don't know about which characters would be used, and I'm sorry to hear that it might indeed be a bootleg copy. However, the price was in keeping with what you would expect from a legit Chinese edition: cheaper than the US price, but not cheap (~$15). It wasn't a price that screamed "bootleg" to me (had it been <$8 there would have been no doubt in my mind).

What? Why would a legit version of the game necessarily use Traditional Chinese? If it's targeted for mainland China it will be in Simplified Chinese, legit or not.

I just ordered an aliexpress copy. FFG is taking too damn long to reprint. If they want my money all they had to do was produce the product. So why would using the only available version be shameful?

(Note, I purchased the legit version and a sibling LOST it. So technically I own a copy already)

I've been following the Fantasy Flight 'Upcoming' list, and Condottiere has dropped off their list of reprints. No explanation.

Totally criminal -- this is a great game. I hope that someone else picks it up!

I just came here to check on the status because I've been hoping for a reprint for about a year now. I might have to track down a used copy!

It looks FFG has removed this product from their website. Their product page is not found, and the product is gone from the upcoming list.
