After we launched Canoe in Essen, we offered it to "Out of the Box" along with the other games in "The Games Collection." They felt the Premier Series should be launched in the market first, and so waited a year to launch the others.
In the meantime, however, another inventor registered the intent to use the name Canoe for his own game with the USPTO, and since we had not SOLD our samples to OTB, it looked like a long legal battle ahead.
No one wins these battles given the profits available in selling abstracts. - I wish him luck with his game, in the US.
So if you want our Canoe, you must get it elsewhere.
If any one knows about this US Canoe Game, why not review it on BGG? - But as a separate listing please.
