Hi, one of the new games that I want to buy as soon as it is available on the other side of the Atlantic is Drum Roll. So far I haven´t had any luck finding it in the US. However, here on the Geekstore I could buy the expansion Drum Roll: Ringmaster.

Do you think it will reach the US stores soon? Should I buy the expansion now that is available and wait for the base game? Would the cards of the expansion be compatible with any new edition by an American Publisher, if it is any on its way? Any thoughts?

There was a post by the designer stating that the first printing was meant for both European and North American disribution but demand in Europe took up all of the first edition. I believe the post went on to say that they would soon do a second edition themselves and send to an American distributor so you don't have to worry about an American company redesigning the artwork of the cards. Regarding if you should purchase Ringmaster: it all comes down to how worried you are that it will sell out before the base game is reprinted. I don't know the print run size of Ringmaster.

That's good news. Hopefully the 2nd. Edition will arrive soon. If the Game is not going to be redisigned I guess I'll just buy the expansion and wait for the game. Thanks for the info.

As far as i know it will be a straight reprint. So it is a good idea to grab Ringmaster while it is available.

It´s official, I´m the happy owner of the Drum Roll Ringmaster expansion and I don´t even have the basegame. I hope it soon arrives to the USA. Looking forward to play it.

I'm in the same boat - bought the expansion before it sells out, even though I don't have the base game yet. Here's hoping Artipia (and Z-Man?) get this to the US soon.
