This is being reprinted by MMP in November 2007. The pre-order price on Thoughthammer is $36.00.

I would take that with a grain of salt. Thoughthammer is also listing:

Yanks (Sep 2007)

and a few other titles (eg):

For King and Country
Monty's Gamble: Market Garden

that aren't even on MMPs pre-order page right now. As well as a bunch of pre-order titles with 2007 dates which are not likely to get published in 2007.

Brian Youse has posted on CSW about pre-order updates later this week - so will wait for further confirmations.

Brian Youse was actually kind enough to reply to a geeklist I did recently about MMP games where I had mentioned hoping that a reprint for Fallschirmjaeger would be coming soon. He said...

"We get asked for a reprint of this more than any other Gamers title, now that we've reprinted DAK, so this will probably be put on P# around the same time we put Guderian's Blitzkrieg up for preorder.

We're not thrilled with having a lot of reprints up, but I think this one may have a good chance of hitting its number and getting done. We'd also like to do (eventually) Omaha and probably Drive on Paris."

I don't deny that Fallschirmjaeger will get reprinted. After all, I recently acquired a copy, whcih usually guarantees a game is about to be reprinted. (Have to learn to wait just a bit longer, but sometimes the price is hard to beat.)

I was just a bit skeptical about the timing....

Thanks for the additional information. I've heard good things about this one and hope they do get it out soon.

I'd buy it as well. I've emailed MMP several times asking about it but they never respond.

I asked Dean about this a month or two back on CSW, and he replied that it's still a possibility. My impression is that nobody at MMP has thought about it enough to even begin to give a yes or no answer.

I've asked it today too and this was (unfortunately) the answer:

> Dear Sir:
>
> At this time we a reprint is not planned.

> Sincerely,

> Lu Ann Youse
> Office Manager
> Multi-Man Publishing, LLC

Too bad, but keep on pestering them! ;)

Well, I don't think LuAnn would really be the person to ask about reprints until they're officially in the pipeline (i.e. in the P# system or close to it). As I mentioned above, I think that Dean and Brian are definitely considering a reprint of this, but that it's still too far off for it to be officially "in the works".

That's just my take on things from the way I've seen MMP operate in the past, but I certainly don't have an special knowledge here. It's hard for us to know what's in the collective mind of MMP until something actually shows up for preorder.

Fallschirmjaeger is on my BGG "Wish List" but I refuse to pay the high price that it's commanding on eBay.

There's a variant for FJ coming in the Operations Special Issue. I think there's a good possiblity a reprint will go on P# one of these days... cool

MMP's business model seems a bit lacking to me.

Why publish articles on games they no longer sell?

I've read several articles on Fallschrimjaeger and now have the extra counters provided in the operations special issue, but I can't buy the game.

I can buy it second hand but that doesn't help MMP's profits.

By the time a reprint is done my interest may have waned and thus MMP will lose custom.

Come on MMP, the articles you print in operations will drum up interest and make people want to play, and thus buy, the games; your costing yourselves business by not having these games available to sell.

Emailed MMP about this issue i.e. you're publishing variants with no copies of the game available. Got a quick response stating it will be reprinted in '09 after their current crop in the pipeline is caught up.

I've come across several copies over the years from local sources but the $100 I can get for them on Ebay forces me to sell (so I can buy multiple other games I want!) It will be nice to pay $20-$30 for one again.

There seems to a lot of games that would come before Fallschirmjaeger that MMP would reprint. The company is currently out of its main ASL modules once again, including Beyond Valor of all things. There is the new publishing success with the Japanese line of games that no doubt will push things back a bit. I cannot belive, having known of MMP for ten years now, that Fallschirmjaeger will be reprinted anytime soon if at all. But MMP often surprises everybody by reprinting something or moving something up the production line.

One thing that can influence this is the relative diffcult of reprints. Many of the big ASL names were never produced by MMP (ie Yanks) so they're held up while all the artwork etc is recreated. If an SCS game like this can be reprinted with relatively little effort, it might take up a slot in the reprint schedule while the other games are held up in pre-production.

Latest word from MMP is that they'll go up for pre-order after WBC. Then we'll see what the real demand is.

Glad to see this one finally got reprinted. The new edition looks great, MMP really came through with this edition, you can see the care they put into it. The fans input also helped them here.
