Fantastic. I'm glad I don't have to miss this vs. paying 75 bucks for it.

It's better than their last two releases; actually QUITE good.

I hope it'll still contain the "Big Paws" Token.

This is fantastic news. I really like this game, but I was reluctant to spend the 70$+ that it would cost to purchase it from Fragor directly.

I think ST is a clear candidate for the Spiel des Jahres, and having it picked up by a larger publisher like Asmodee will only strengthen its bid.

Translating the web page online, it seems to say Asmodee is organizing a contest to find a new name for the game. More news to follow on this 'Alaskan basket' prize mentioned.

Did not think it needed a new name as Shear Panic name was kept in remake and this would keep up the 'animal pun' title

still, good to hear there is going to be a new, more available (cheaper?) edition. cool

Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him. 2 Sam 14:14

What? I thought everyone had decided to give it to Dominion?

Maybe everyone on BGG has, but don't the SdJ judges pretty much do their own thing?

There not in Aldie's pocket? (Or was it the other way around?)

From what I read here I think this game is going to "replace" Ave Caesar as light racing game in many groups, but one problem I see is the 5-player limit...


I know why most euros are made for up to 5 players etc, but couldn't this new edition be released adding a 6th player (please!)?
