Does anyone know if this game will be released via retail by any chance (more specifically coolstuffinc)? or is it only available for purchase through the elzra website? Thanks!

Each time there is a new printing, it's always released via retail. The last print run is just sold out at most places.

I'd also recommend the excellent Catacombs & Castles which you can still find a few places. It can be a bit more approachable (adjustable play time, can be played in teams or one vs all, simpler rules), but is also just a great game in its own right.

Elzra might pop in and tell you if there's going to be a new printing of either.

It has not sold out yet, but I expect it to very quickly. The same summary that I wrote regarding the Wyverns expansion applies to the latest Catacombs 3e printing too.

We have to replace all the game boards for Catacombs 3e and then re-shrinkwrap. We need some Wyverns copies to be completed before we can fulfill orders from distributors. These are scheduled for next week. Once that process is complete, we can get them sent out and the games will show up at retail. I appreciate everyone's patience - it's been a nightmare for us dealing with it all.

Then, of course, it's back to dealing with KS support tickets.

My advice: when it becomes available at retail, don't wait, buy it immediately. We do have some copies available at our online store too (shop.elzra.com), just FYI. I can usually get them shipped out within a day or two.

I'm actively getting another reprint quoted.

Re: Retail availability
Will there be new copies available in the UK?

I've been trying to get this for ages here in Europe, but it's been nigh impossible... It became instantly sold out at the distributor (esdevium) when it appeared and online availability very quickly dried up.
Ordering it directly from the US is not an option due to custom fees and paperwork...
Will there be a new KS for a reprint?

You would be ordering direct from Canada and their customs fees are way worse. This is the main reason I have not ordered it from the Elzra store.

I have the same question, except in regards to the expansions like the two packs. I can't find any, and they don't show up on CSI or MM. Any suggestions?
