It's not out of print, just out of stock. More should be over from China soon.

The cardstock in the Chinese edition is significantly thicker than Saboteur 2, so if you are likely to ever get Saboteur 2 I'd steer clear. It also has rules with a lot of spelling errors and such. I'm not sure if it is legit or not as it could just be leftovers from the really old Z-Man Chinese printing or something.

I'd just look up the English rules and buy the Amigo version (French, I think) from Amazon. The cards don't have text anyways (except the Saboteur), so you'll be fine. And the cards from the Amigo version do mix properly with Saboteur 2 from Z-Man.

I've checked the version and link with Z-man Games.
It's definitely a pirate version of the game.
Unfortunately, I get no royalties on pirate versions. That's very sad for my poor wife and hungry children!

Wow, so the "Chinese" edition is a bootleg?

It's still for sale -- can't somebody at Z-Man shut that sale down? Unfortunate that people do this kind of thing...

If anyone has a new/shrink copy of Saboteur (English) for sale or trade, let me know.

Yes, apparently China has discovered the bootleg board game market as a business opportunity. Many western board games are bootlegged and get a set of chinese rules. Law is apparently so hazy or non-existent in these regards that it will be impossible to shut down anything like this.

Hey Jim,

FYI: Saboteur (and Saboteur 2) are now in stock at Coolstuff.
