Now that Ares Games has picked up the rights to War of the Rings last month, does anyone want to bet they'll put out a new and improved limited edition?

Seems to me with everyone kicking themselves having missed out on the first run, there's a market out there for another redux, maybe even better! The hinged lid on the original was far too fragile!

Not this again. Roberto said it was going to be one and done for the CE.

I have to confess that I would greatly enjoy reading the rage threads if they did. I think it is immensely unlikely, but some kind of delux edition, eg with prepainted minis, must be an outside possibility.

I believe it was stated that Nexus would never release another collector's edition, but now that Nexus is no longer the one producing it, I see no reason why they couldn't do a 'revised collector's edition'... not to say that they will, or that they are even thinking about it, but I don't feel as though the promise has to be honored by the new company...

You know, there really was no shortage of copies of this special edition when it came out, and a long long run up giving people who wanted it ample time to order. It's in the nature of Collector's Editions that once it's out of print a person might be able to sell it for a profit on the eBay.

And I don't know the poster, but it is conceivable that a person could profiteer on collectibles and still make contributions to the pore ole boardgaming community.

I think it would have a much greater implication than (just) the righteous anger of those of us who purposefully went without purchasing other games, other luxury items etc in order to balance the books/convince our other halves over the expense of the CE. To me, it would greatly undermine the concept of the high value limited or collectable edition of a game for the industry as a whole: no one would take a publisher at their word that they really mean it and their special edition "won't be another WotR:CE".

As an owner of the CE, it wouldn't particularly put me out if other people had the opportunity to purchase the thing I purchased, which they might not have been able to afford, or might not have been aware of back when I purchased it.

Like, it's not a competition.

Edit: oh, but I don't think it's happening at all. At least, not anytime soon.

How about just another reprint, but not with the figures painted? I'd like to have it with the original and expansion combined but don't care to pay the extra money for the painted figures (as long as they make each race a different color). Think this will happen?

It aint happening.

What is happening...
1) The Basic Set ( Version 2 ) will be printed.
2) The Expansion will be redesigned.
3) The Expansion (without the bonus games) will be printed.


Don't hold your breath for any of these steps....

Well, step 1 at least is not so far in the future... the game is in production now and we expect it to ship from the factory around october, 20th, to be available in the USA around the end of november.

The next steps are not yet on a timeline, but Magic is right in that they will be the next ones.
