I've asked Mark Simonitch if he'd had any luck in getting the rights of the game back from Wizards of the Coast. I think that WOTC is not going to reprint it, so it would be our only hope (Obi-Wan Kenobi) -- ah nevermind. So! I got his answer this morning:

"Julien,
I heard from Wizards of the Coast a couple of weeks ago. No, they will not
release the rights back to me. I doubt they have plans to reprint it, I think
they just don't want to give away anymore of their resources.

Sorry for the bad news. I heard the game is now going for $200 on ebay!!!
That is way too high.
--Mark"

Too bad cry

QUICK! DELETE THIS JOURNAL. If word of this gets out, $200 on eBay will seem like peanuts.

tis a sad day indeed.

I'm glad I picked it up when I did. I thought I paid too much for it at the time too, but in retrospect...

Damn.
Pardon my language.

I've currently gotten interested in this, and I've been lurking on eBay for one. They're going for $120-150. Too much.

I agree. Time to make a homemande one.

Are all the resources to make on available here on the Geek?

A pity. This game deserves a wider audience.

Screw WotC!
Why don't we start a letter writing campaign. Seriously. Just bombard them with missives. Create a fuss. So they don't listen; it cost you a stamp and an hour of time.

Then: boycott. angry

I don't think all of the resources are available here, but they are available on the net. I made up a We the People a while back and plan to do the same for Hannibal at some point. It is a lot of work, especially making all of the cards.

Sad indeed
Ever since I had a chance to play this game, I've been wanting to get one. But the eBay price just went up and up... and now it's $200?!

I don't see the point here. I cannot imagine WotC reprinting this game, because this game is just not suitable for their current target customers. It's not like they are going to make hoge money out of this.

Sigh...
