GET A SILK BAG FROM THE GRAVEYARD DUCK TO LIVE LONGER.

I noticed this on the 'Reprint' entry in the Through the Desert entry and thought I would share:

FFG, as many know, are going to do a reprint of Through the Desert next year. The fact that it is going to be in a silver line (cheaper) box had many concerned that the title was going to use chits instead of camels. Well, worry no longer, it has been confirmed that the title will be 30$ MSRP and include those loveable camels!

Great news for many of us who have been wanting to get a copy of the game, but don't quite want it badly enough to play the import fee.

The real question is: Will the game still suck?

Cool
Cool. I've been wanting this game for a long time. I've read a lot of good reviews and it's rated highly.

Thanks for sharing.

Here's the TtD Reprint entry, for the convenience of anyone who wants it:

TTD Sucks?
Crap! I must have been playing it wrong all this time, because I though it was an excellent game!

However, I have come up with a new variant to make it suck. There is only one change you have to make. Instead of being limited to placing two camels, you can place an unlimited number. Beware, there is a significant first-player advantage with this variant, but it does indeed suck now.

I hereby place this variant in the public domain.

Seriously though, I'm glad it's being reprinted, even though I just got the original german edition.

At least now if you eat all your camels, you can easily get new ones.
