The following games, though firmly entrenched on my want list, did not make the final Christmas list I will pass on to my wife and parents.

Can I wait on these games? My main concern is that one will go out of print. Though some of the games are very, very high up on my want list, they did not make my final Christmas list because I feel safe that they will not be OOP anytime soon (i.e. Acquire). Here they are, in no particular order.

Memoir '44
Colossal Arena
Acquire
Sleuth
Wyatt Earp
Camelot Legends
St. Petersburg
I'm the Boss
Princes of Florence
War of the Ring
Mu & More
Tichu
Category 5
Bang!

So, do you see any problem with waiting on these games. I will probably get them all or most within the next year, along with:

Winner's Circle
Traumfabrik
El Grande
Ra
Through the Desert
Wallenstein

No problem on waiting, other than the obligatory @But you REALLY should get BLAH right away. It's too good to pass up!'.

I think you'll be okay on waiting on those.

Acquire IS out of print. For the first time in forty-odd years, it's currently OOP. When the last of those big box AH copies go, they're gone until AH/Hasbro/General Mills/Microsoft/Whoever they are now chooses to republish.

I'd better reorganize to get Acquire right away.

What about Princes of Florence. I just read on someone's GeekList that it was going OOP. Any truth to this ugly rumor?

Wyatt Earp is OOP with Alea according to Brett & Board. Not sure if that means Rio Grande will not reprint when they sell out, but I would guess so.

Princes of Florence is at an age that it might be OOP soon.

I don't think there's anything else to worry about on your list. Can't confirm Aquire, but that's sad if Hasbro took it out of print after this long.

I assume you realize that Ra is OOP currently (at least the English language version is). But rumors have Uberplay re-releasing it in Q1-2005.
