Great news everyone! The expansion to Near and Far, Amber Mines, just started its Kickstarter run, and within less than a day Red Raven Games has made their goal 6x over! And, in response to a comment I made about "crossing my fingers for a reprint of The Ancient World," creator Ryan Laukat says:

"Thank you for the kind words! An Ancient World reprint will happen next year."

It's going to happen! Yay!

I can't wait to hear more! I wonder if it will be a reprint or a 2nd version (ie: Empires of the Void 2). Either way I'm very excited!

As long as it's not another City of Iron situation, where the new printing changes the game, doesn't provide an upgrade kit, and any future expansions are not compatible with the original game.

Agreed, although first edition CoI with Experts and Engines is pretty much perfect for me, and I couldn’t ask for much more.

That said, I was just able to get my hands on a copy of The Ancient World and I would definitely feel pretty bummed missing out on any potential expansions/improvements. It’s an awesome game and I’m excited that more people will get to play it. Hopefully Ryan takes first edition owners into consideration to provide some compatibility with the new iteration.

Wish I would have checked this forum earlier today, because I just bought a copy of the first printing... If there's a second edition rather than a second printing, I'm going to be hesitant to buy another Red Raven first edition game.

not really fair, tbh, this game came out over 3 years ago. theres plenty of time for a second edition to be reasonable

In your opinion.

My opinion is that a 3-year beta test isn't my cup of tea. I'm fine with waiting for the full game to release in the future.

Not to put a damper on people's expectations, but I did ask RRG directly about the re-print and in their email response they said they ultimately decided not to reprint Ancient World 'for the moment'.

Seems like I'll never find a copy.

There are some in the BGG Market. Price might be high, but... Seems like you could find a copy. I'd even sell mine for the right price, but shipping to the US might be a bit much.

I'm picky. I'd like it brand new because there is just something about opening a brand new shrink-wrapped copy of a game. Also in English, I don't know other languages and reading foreign language on cards is not something my game group would be keen on doing, instant turn-off.

Oh, I hear you. Punching tokens is why I buy games! And I worry about how others treat their games, so that makes me hesitate to scour the used market much, too.

But if it were something I really, really wanted and couldn't find anymore, I'd be okay to make an exception. The only one I bought used that I can think of is Ninjato, earlier this year.

Well I sent a second email to RRG asking them to point me in the right direction of getting a copy. If they have extra copies around the office, I hope they take pity and sell me one. I'd be more than willing to give them cash for a copy of this OOP game in particular.

I already own the game, but i'd buy it again if they put it in a Carcassonne-size box, as I hate wasting storage space. The folded board fits just right and they would just have to change the rulebook format.

I don't understand this sentiment. Why wouldn't anyone want the game's design to progress forward? A new edition doesn't render the original game any less playable and forcing a design to work with an upgrade pack handicaps creativity. I love what Ryan did with both City of Iron 2E and Empires of the Void II and will be equally as excited to see the next Ancient World.

Agreed. I like TAW as it is but I'd love a 2nd edition that takes the game up another notch or in a slightly different direction. Then I have two games. If the 2nd edition is significantly different, I'd love for the KS campaign to include a mini-expansion for the original.

I had a guide, a Bedouin man, who called me 'Abu el Banat'. And whenever we'd meet another Bedouin, he'd introduce me as Abu el Banat. And the Bedouin would laugh and laugh and offer me a pint of beer. (cont below)

And I'd go to pay them for the beer and they wouldn't let me. "Abu el Banat" means "Father of daughters." They thought the beer was the least they could do.

Not a surprising pseudo-announcement, as I just traded for the first edition.

That's ok though. Playing first edition will work fine for me. The only disappointment from that photo is the box size - Gláucio was right to say that it would fit "...in a Carcassonne-size box... The folded board fits just right and they would just have to change the rulebook format."

That would have made the second edition more appealing to me, enough so that I would consider upgrading. As it stands now, I'll be content with what I've got.

Well, they are changing the title font. Let's see if they at least change also one of the sides of the box to match the book-spine style of later games, so that all look good, stored side-by-side vertically on the shelf. Of course, some component upgrade wouldn't be bad, either.
