I owned archipelago at one point.
It was sold to purchase games that would see more table time.
As our gaming group has evolved, we miss archipelago.

Where would I find if a reprinting is ever going to happen?

As Radziol says, it is definitely available direct from Ludically. I ordered a copy and it arrived just before Christmas.

According to the linked site, there is no shipping to the U.S., which I assume is the OP's home country. As far as I can tell, it is out of stock in the U.S., but Amazon indicates that copies should be arriving in March.

So is this coming back to regular retail?
Including War & Peace?

Not sure I trust a date from a 3rd party seller on Amazon.

I agree, which is why I said that Amazon indicates that it will be available March.

I still have the game and it is one of my favorites but the game is long and if you play this with the wrong group of people be prepared for torture (imo) as someone tries to intentionally cause unrest so that everyone loses because they know they can not win.


Wait....wait....before people bite my head off. I realize that in the game design space, yes, playing so everyone loses is a viable action especially if you know you can not win. I totally get that, however, I do not play that way nor do the people I play with and that is how "we" enjoy it.
We try to optimize what we have and if we see the end coming and we think we can not win we still try to optimize points to win.

This game reminds me of New Angeles another game which I love. New Angeles did not go over well with my game group and I would definitely not play Archipelago with them.

sounds like a game design mistake not a group mistake, much like in Dead of Winter.

However I did not have that problem in New Angeles so far.

Anyone has updated information on reprinting. Can it make it before Orgin or even Gencon or even this year? Ludically's website is down for upgrade.

Found this on another thread https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1857901/will-ever-be-update...

Just heard back from Ludically, they are planning on a reprint but are waiting to hear back from their partners in each country.

Does this mean they are still surveying the market's demand to estimate the number of copies they need to make?

I'd like to know this to!
Is there any official information from the publishers?
I would love to own this gem. It looked so nice in the 2 vids SU&SD made.
Sadly, Ludically's site is still down for maintenance (and their last FB-Posts are from about 1.5 years ago).

A online shop in my country are expecting the game to be in stock 30th June (previously it said unconfirmed and kept pushing the date).

Also, it looks like a site is up!
https://www.asmodee.us/en/games/archipelago/products/archipe...

Edit:
The site is still down: http://www.ludically.com/
Dunno how I found that other above, but at least it says in production at that site.

I wanted to give some updated information on this topic thread. I partially backed Living Planet, the most recent KS by Christophe and he made the following comment on May 29th in response to someone asking if Archipelago could be available as an add-on:

as an add-on ??? LoL
I guess you are joking
Seriously, Archipelago should go into reprint soon... We are desperately expecting (for quite some time now) the numbers to reprint per country from Asmodee... As soon as we get those quantities per country, we should launch the reprint. Then the games will be available in the shops all around the world (or almost I hope).

So, that is a strong vote for it is coming soon'ish.

Hello! Unfortunately we don't have an arrival estimate yet, but the game will be reprinted and rereleased as soon as we can. Keep your eye out for any news!

Thanks,

Not the news we want to see, but it's better news than no plans to reprint. It does seem the reprint isn't happening anywhere near as soon as stated earlier.

CoolStuff has removed this from their catalog. May be some internal cleanup. May be a bad sign.

The designer has said they will reprint, but not until after they finish with Living Planet, which is their focus right now, for KS fulfillment.

I'm sure it will be back in print, but all the early dates distributors and shops were giving seem more based on hope than information.

Any news about the reprint.
This game is out of stock in entier Europe!!
Come on!

I mean, are not the developers of this game hungry for making money?
or is it so that nobody will buy this game so they will not reprint it?
Cost is to high?

News?

More likely their funds are tied up in Living Planet which they are publishing themselves also. Do you read the information here?

Archipelago will be reprinted. It won't be this year though.

Hello everybody, speaking on the behalf of the Ludically team : we confirm that Archipelago is being reprinted as we speak.

It seems that we missed this thread, and we therefore apologize for the silence, but the game should be available by the end of the month !

Regards,
