I heard that Rio Grande was going to distribute this in the U.S., but I haven't seen the price tag go down any yet. Does anyone know if it will?

Why would you expect the imported version's price to go down before an English version is released?

I dunno...maybe because Jay can import more than one or two at a time? Next question - will there be an English version?

Stores and distributors will sell small amounts of this game from Europe, at the high price, because of the high cost of importing. They'll know the street date for "RGG's" version, be it in English or not. Knowing this date, they won't buy extra copies at the inflated price and instead, they'll wait for RGG's (assumed) lower prices.

OK, one time Randy Beaman had to take baths with his brother. So one time his little brother took a potty in the bathtub .....and now Randy Beaman gets to take showers alone. 'K, bye.

I'm not sure where the priority in reprinting it would be since the original came with English rules.

If Jay reprints/rebrands it with the RGG logo the RGG price will be lower in the US. If Jay imports/releases the European version then a large amount of them will be in the US and the price will come down. Jay has done neither of those things at this point so there is no reason for retailers to charge less.

There has been no decision by RGG to bring this to North America at all.

The existing version of Valdora comes with English rules and player aids in addition to German. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my copy from Milan-Spiele to find English was included.

Of course if you know something we do not then the if becomes a when, but still the price will not fall until the when happens.

I pulled the trigger on a Game Surplus order last night. I can't see why it's worth the wait and $10-$15 off for an RGG copy when I can be playing in just a few more days.

I ordered it from amazon.de, along with a few other titles not freely available in the US. I think I got reasonable shipping, but I did accidentally order 2 copies of Valdora, so now I have to figure what to do about it.

I will probably list it in the Marketplace here a bit above the preorder one, in line with the pricing at GamesSurplus (where it is out of stock).

Based on play of the game, the most memorable quote of the evening was:

"At least I know a game I can put up as trade fodder in a month or two."
