I sent an e-mail to wehrlegig about the state of a reprint for the Pax Pamir second edition and drew kindly responded with this gem

Happy New Year to you! We are all sold out, but later this year we'll have another printing. We are going to launch pre-orders for a 2nd printing of Pax Pamir on KS alongside John Company this spring. We're hoping for March for the launch but we don't have a finalized date set yet. We estimate a late summer arrival to backers. Sign up for the newsletter or follow us on social media to learn when pre-orders go live.

Thanks for your interest and I hope we have your support then.

So is it a straight reprint of Pax Pamir 2nd (preorder through Wehrlegig?) happening at the same time as a new edition of John Company being kickstarted? or is John Company being reprinted with no new edition (probably not as there would be no need of involving KS and it would be difficult to do so, but just to be sure...)

As far as I know is John Company getting a second edition, like Pax Pamir got.
So there will be a KS for John Company 2.0 and a straight reprint of Pax Pamir 2.0 alongside the KS. Maybe as a single pledge, maybe as an add-on.
Because Drew said "pre-order" it should be the website, though.

My interpretation is that there will be a kickstarter where the focus is on a new edition of John Company. And there will also be a tier/option to preorder a copy of Pax Pamir from its next print run, or you'll be able to purchase it using Backerkit / their website.

This would let them combine the effort of collecting preorders and handling kickstarter/backerkit stuff, while they're already spending time and attention on that sort of things. It'll also bring some bonus attention to John Company from people who show up to buy PP.

Yes, that’s my understanding too...

Is there any information if the metal coins get remade?

I would suggest contacting Drew to ask that the metal coins be included.

Great news about the prospective PP reprint. Fingers crossed.

I believe they've stated outright that if they do a Pax Pamir 2E reprint, they'll definitely also print more coins. At the time they were only "probably" going to do a reprint, but it sounds like that's now officially the plan.

If by "cash grab" you mean "selling games for money," then yes. They're a small publisher selling premium niche games. Seems like the perfect use of Kickstarter.

Completely agree with Chris H. In the case of Wehrlegig, it's the tiniest of publishers (just the two Wehrle brothers) doing a labor of love (i.e., evenings and weekends) to give fans of their games the best possible product.

I highly recommend this extended interview with Cole Wehrle on the subject of Pax Pamir and many others:

First...I bought Pax Pamir on a whim...someone here recommended it to me...I watched the video...bought it...and it's really close to my favorite game (I still love FCM). I'm hesitant to buy other Pax games because I think they might be similar (I'm always looking for variety in the games I have). Anyone here think the Pax games are similar and wondering if anyone thinks I would like John Company if I liked PP.

Whereas, since the other Pax games are not by Cole Wehrle, I'm hesitant to buy them because I think they might not be similar enough. 😉

Pax Pamir 2nd is the only game from Cole Wehrle I have consistently played so far (about 7 plays, and it's becoming my favorite game); I've only played Root once, with the bare understanding of rules and the marquise faction. It felt promising but nowhere as thrilling and intriguing as PP2 for me.
However, I purchased John Company in the secondary market (long before learning it is getting a reboot), and I made my own custom print-and-play version of An Infamous Traffic, as I think those 2 games, and most especially JC, will provoke the same feeling of awe at the sheer ingenuity and mastery by which I feel actual history is modelled and crafted in a game like PP2.
So yes, I think you'll enjoy JC if you like PP2, despite not having played JC myself (but I have started sifting the rules and I have seen several gameplays). I am currently studying Bios Genesis to play it soon, and very likely JC is going next.
