Does anyone have any idea when this game is going to be available to purchase again? It seems that all the internet games suppliers I've visited in the U.K. have it on order indefinitely with no fixed date for it's availability. There's a couple of copies I've seen in the U.S. but the international postage costs quite a bit more than the game itself, which is obviously a bit of a downer (although if the game is as good as I'm led to believe I'd probably go down that route as a last resort).

It just seems to be one of those games where demand is always greater than supply and I can't see why the publishers don't get wise to it.

Anyway, any information in regards to this would be greatly appreciated.

It seems the games are complete...just in a plain white box instead of full colour....and its available right now!

Peace

I bought the White Box Version two month ago. And i can confirm that it's complete 2nd edition except that the board is, well, you guessed it, White.

Do you mean the "box" is white?

I ran into the same availability issue you did. I scoured the net for a copy of the game in Europe and found www.jocade.net. It is available (in fact I think the base game and all expansions are available), decent price and very, very good service. If you have a problem with the web interface just send an e-mail to David Pernot at david.pernot@gmail.com. The store is in France and I had the game delivered in Athens within the week.

Hope this helps.

I didn't get the CCA game+Exp from them, but philibertnet.com is quite good and they seem to have all of them on stock (55+50+50+27 EUR). The shipping to the EU is free above 150 EUR...
