I think there is another kickstarter launch waiting to happen in 2017, so I'd advise you to wait and whatever you do, do NOT feed the scalpers.

I thought there was a regular reprint planned, to be in retail stores towards the of the year. Or did I understand that wrong?

Spirit Island sold out to distributors about 3 weeks after it hit - so there aren't many copies around. There is a reprint in the works. There is no Kickstarter associated with it. Best guess at the moment is more copies will be available around December. MSRP is $80 US.

A reprint has been ordered already, so just be patient. It'll return to stores around the holidays. The expansion is also being reprinted and I believe the promo spirits will also be getting a reprint. The first run wasn't huge but the game got a lot of traction, so everything sold out extremely fast.

Yeah, not another Kickstarter, just a regular reprint, coming in December barring disasters.

(There may be a Kickstarter for a future expansion sometime in 2018, but that's a separate thing.)

Sorry, shipping will probably kill it for you but mainly putting this here for the EU folks.

As other folks have said, a core-game reprint has already been put in and should arrive around December. The expansion + promos are also being reprinted, likely arriving around February.

>G recently told me that a large chunk of the core-game reprint has been pre-ordered by distributors, so it's already heading towards being sold out at the distributor level. It should persist in stores longer than the first printing did - it's slightly more copies, and doesn't have a bunch of copies pre-allocated to KS backers. But if your preferred store offers a "notify me when this is available" function, setting that up might not be a bad idea just in case.

While it's too late to increase the size of the second printing (which bodes well for it being available by December!), >G will initiate a third printing if it looks like one's needed. They don't want Spirit Island to be unavailable, either! :-)

They said they were completely sold out. They also said the reprint won't be out until December. You do the math.

The supply chain is publisher->distributor->retailer->consumer, where it gets to retailers in December. The convention sale supply chain is publisher->consumer, skipping 2 entire steps. It can easily be available at a convention in November if it's getting to retailers in December. You should be the one doing the math.

I think that you're making an assumption here that the reprint is getting to retailers in December, and I'm not entirely sure it's a good one. Everything I've seen so far has simply said that the print run will "arrive" in December with no indication of who it is arriving to. However, since GtG sells games directly from their store, it seems reasonable to me that they'd be benchmarking by arrival at the publisher level.

Just ordered it last night, but worried that it is in fact out of stock and they forgot to update the website!

Possible but I saw it come in on the 'Restocks' page so they have had more stock since it sold out the first time.

Good luck!

I just found a copy sitting at my FLGS. Maybe searching for it AFK would get results?

The supply chain here is irrelevant. GtG never said it would be going to stores in December, but that THEY would be getting it by December. They can't sell in November what they won't have until December, so my original reply remains correct. They are out and won't be getting the new copies back in stock until December, so that means no copies will be available anywhere, including conventions, until then. They may have a few promo packs left though.

Although... does PAX have a retailer presence? If so, they might have some copies for sale. Seems like it would be a slim hope though.

Had luck at a local game store too, and they've still got a couple more: NextGen Games, Los Angeles.

I suspect a little bit of post-con stock may have been made available or something. I noticed the Amazon availability (and GtG site availability) with very limited stock (like 3-8ish) when I got a shipping notice that my "we don't know when this will be available again" Amazon order had suddenly shipped.

I just wish I could track down the promo spirits now! February-ish is so far away!
