Inotaizu, previously available only from the designer, will be released at Spiel '10 by Ascora Games and renamed Kaigan.

It appears to be the same game, though the board has been redesigned. Current owners will probably be able to make a better judgement than me.

Follow this link to BGN for the announcement.

Game play is the same as far as I am aware.

Jeff, I'm not quite set up for pre-orders yet, but should be in a week or so. I'll make a post to let you know.

The actual gameplay is the same, although I have clarified several of the rules with the game designer. Also there are a few small (hopefully better!) changes: new art for the gameboard and map tiles, there are now 24 map tiles instead of 22, instead of paper money there will be cardboard coins, instead of pawns, the players will have Meeples, and instead of a rectangle used to shape the map tiles there is now a map outline with a round overview and a phase guide. Otherwise, the gameplay is exactly the same.

It makes me sad.

Edit: OK, at least it's not a plain black box, now.

Scott,

Will this be available through traditional FLGSs?

Jonathan,

I'm hoping it will be. I guess it depends on the demand from gamers to prompt FLGS's to carry it. (and if there are any left over after Essen)

The new game art looks amazing. While I hope you sell out at Essen, part of me wants you to have few copies left to purchase. devil

Hey Tom,

I appreciate the sentiment.

I actually have just opened the game to preorders for pickup in Essen. The first 500 preorders will get a semiprecious round marker (either onyx or tiger's eye). So if you know anyone who is going to Essen, have them reserve a copy for you by sending an email to info@ascoragames.com .

You know me Scott this is Tom from Chicago...just moved to Naperville...but you probably will be having your suit cases packed with enough stuff that you will get docked by the fees as it is...So alas I will need to find someone else....
Perhaps if you have some left for Cat N Mouse I can get a copy from Linda.

I decided to pre-order the game from Funagain since they go to Essen and buy games to bring back. I didn't want to risk missing the opportunity to get this great game and supporting a good friend in the process. I hope everything goes awesome at Essen as I am sure it will.
Can't wait to get my copy.
