I recently tried Antiquity and liked it, and wanted to buy a copy, but the online stores that I checked have all run out of stock. The copies available in the BGG Marketplace have very high prices, similar to before the 2011 reprint came out. I am surprised it is so quickly out of stock again after the recent reprint. Does anyone know any place which still has stock?

I honestly don't know if it is out of stock. The stuff in the marketplace is pre-2011 reprint (as I have been watching for it as well). I picked up a copy this go around and from what I could tell, we were one of the first orders filled. So I don't if it is already sold out again or if other places just haven't gotten their copies from Splotter yet.

Don't be surprised. Splotter is a small company that likes to sell games at Essen, not a large company willing to stuff games into the normal distribution channels. You shouldn't expect its availability to be anything like mass-produced games.

There were several small imports into the US by individual online game stores (And a few real ones) which have mostly sold out. I expect more small shipments will happen in the future.

I've read in other threads that it might be available soon from splotters website so you might want to check there. From what I've seen most of the online retailers seem to be already sold out.

Good luck.

Thanks everyone. This gives me some hope that it may be a matter of distribution and not really that the game is out-of-print again so quickly. I better check the Splotter website and also other online stores regularly.

A few days before Essen, Jeroen from Splotter promised, that they will have a new website online soon, where you shall have the possibility to order a copy of Antiquity (and/or other Splotter games).

Unfortunately, the Splotter website still hasn't been relaunched. Probably because the Splotter guys are busy with their real life.

(And yes, there is a life outside the board gaming universe )

I believe Mario at Godboma.com in Quebec may be getting another shipment soon. I got a copy for $119(Canadian) this last week.

Yes, this is (still) true. Unfortunately, "soon" will not mean as soon as we'd originally hoped - it will most likely only be after the holidays . On the plus side, we will have Antiquity for sale there .

Mr. Doumen,
Is there any way to find out when the web is ready? I mean, like a mail list, or perhaps you could set a link here... I suppose not, because you'll probably be very busy, but I thought I better ask, just in case.
You know, I really want this game. Then, I'll really want some partners to play with it. But that's another story.

You can check in for yourself when it has been updated. The old site is still up.

Thanks--I placed an order with them. Which was a lot of fun as my high school German is beyond rusty. Thank goodness for Babelfish. d^_^b

It has arrived... and it was packed it in a "tough bag" rather than a box... so there was a dent in the side. The box for antiquity is very large and a great deal of the chits had come loose.... and there are a LOT of chits.... I'll have to work out how to store them all in the box.
