After exchanging emails, I just got off the phone with FFG. They kept pointing me to their updates page, which lists nothing about the 2nd edition. I get the impression that FFG has no immediate plans for an English 2nd Ed release and the customer support rep seemed to reinforce this, having no knowledge of it either.

I'd love to be proved wrong here, but I'm no longer holding my breath for a USA/English release.

If you poke around the internet you can find the publisher's webpages.

http://www.stratelibri.it/project/kingsburg/

"Kingsburg is published in ENGLISH by Giochi Uniti/Stratelibri. You can order your ENGLISH copy sending an email to info@stratelibri.it"

Wait. I'm confused now. I thought the 2nd edition was coming to the US.

2nd ed is going to have a different publisher, the main reason FFG would be pointing you towards their page, is because theyprobably don't want you buying from the competition...

That said, the art work of 2ed rubs me the wrong way... and I don't mind a good rubbing every not and then... Just stick with first edition + expansion

Edit ninja

I believe that Stratelibri was the original publisher of the 1st edition as well and that FF simply acted as an 'importer' in a way.

Yess, you are right, it is on the box cover.. I forgot...blush

But FFG must own some rights, no?

Why would they go through the complete visual redesign of the game otherwise?

I don't know the intricacies there, perhaps there was a shared investment in production of the 1st edition.

Excellent! Thanks for clearing this up. I'm emailing them now to ask about prices and distribution.

Report back on prices and shipping if you would, and if you go for it we'll need more pictures.

I find it odd, that FFG still has a Kingsburg and the Expansion listing as upcoming for a reprint on their website. Is that really still planned. Would love to get a copy of the FFG edition in the near future...

I tried emailing that info@stratelibri.it multiple times now. I have never received any response. If anyone has better luck, please do post here.

After three years (I shite you not) of inquiring directly at the company, calling, serching around, I finally got an answer on this on facebook and apparently it will be a Asmodee US release

https://www.facebook.com/stratelibri.giochiuniti/photos/a.10...

But as soon I asked for an ETA the silence curtain heavily fell back.

I'm starting to get desperate on this.

I know 80% that the Italian version will be out for Lucca games in November as hinted in this video from Juli

Besides that your guess is as good as mine.

So it will come to the US under Asmodee?

Will do. The Italian business day has started and ended since I sent the email. I'll post as soon as I hear something back, so if you don't see a follow-up post, I haven't heard back.

Emailing Asmodee resulting in them pointing me back to the FFG updates page, which is exactly where I started.

I feel your pain, as I stated, those have been three long years of sarching.

Look, from what I can understand, EVENTUALLY an english version will come out. If not, pasteups will always be an option I reckon.

I emailed Z-man games on Friday but haven't received a response. Their contact form interface was identical to Asmodee's and FFG's, so I'm not holding out hope for a different answer.

Yeah, I would say don't worry about it though, with the news that Zman(Asmodee) is planning to pick it up it's really not likely that you'll miss it. It's just a question of when it becomes available.

When the first print run of the Z-Man edition comes out I recommend grabbing it quickly. I've heard that Z-Man is not known for doing multiple print runs, even for their popular games.

Dice Tower's Board Game Breakfast featured this as a news item. "I believe that's coming out at Essen," Tom said with a shrug. Any sort of Kingsburg news is good news, IMO, as it shows there's still stuff happening with it.
