As in the title.
Would this game (not Queen version) be available in Essen at Winsome booth ?
I would like to buy it very much, along with Texas & Pacific

Hi,

as far as I know...

...this game will never be published again by Winsome Games, because it was licenced and released as Samarkand by Queen Games. But maybe you find a copy through the market place or from a trade partner.

The queen games version is Samarkand: Routes to Riches, which is substantially different game. I would be very surprised if it wasn't available, they seem to be selling quite well.

John has announced multiple times (although they've been deleted by BGG, too) that once a game is licensed, he doesn't sell the original any more..

Over here John explains that Age of Scheme will not be reprinted.

Also, if you expect to get Texas & Pacific at Essen, I hope you ordered one of the 80 numbered sets...

Then, for the time being, your only choice is to look to the used market. John doesn't break his sets.

He has been known to do reprints of single games, but only if a game does unlicensed.

John had a longish post describing his policies regarding reprints which was deleted along with the previous reprint list. The new list does not have all of the same information about the process, but might help you out.

I also would not be surprised if Queen licenses T+P "quickly" (i.e. by next Essen). They're just starting a new train line...

There are three ways to get Winsme Games games:

1) As part of the annual sets from Winsome.

2) From the used/secondary market.

3) By joining a successful reprint petition.
