Despite wanting this for ages - I have been unable to secure a copy so wrote to Splotter Spellen asking if they had plans to reprint it, and if so to add my name to the list.

I received the following response from Joris.

"we are currently counting the number of requests (mainly from retailers but also private individuals), and will reprint as soon as there is enough demand.
This may take another year or more though!"


So, to enable me to get the game I would love to add to my collection, please would you let Splotter know and get yourself added to the list - I'm sure we could get this back out there within a year if enough people are interested.

Thanks

Thanks for the news Steve. I had to sell my copy last year due to financial difficulties and would like to get a copy back into my collection (missed one on eBay recently after forgetting to confirm my bid with seconds to go), so a reprint would be great. If Joris or Jeroen are reading this, please add my name to the list.

It might be enough to post your interest here - I noticed that Jeroen Doumen (one of the co-designers) has thumbed my earlier post and I know that he does frequent these forums.

Definitely count me in! I've been searching for a copy for about a year now, but I'm not willing to pay the $200 that seems to be the going price for these gems.

I soooo would look forward to a reprint

I just bought a copy at auction last month, so I have been scouring the forums for news of a reprint assuming that this would happen. Thanks, universe. And everyone waiting for the reprint: you're welcome.

I think that would be the big stumbling block - If 500 people all say they want a copy, which then gets produced and only 200 are in a financial position to buy one, then Spellen are long 300 copies that they have to pay for and store.

If their costs are 50 % of retail I would happily give the money to them up front as a deposit and pre-order, this would give them the finances to cover a production run and then I get to pay the 2nd 50% once the games are produced and they know the games are sold.

That way they have no financial risk and we get a game we desperately want.

I think we all know there's not fortunes to be made - generally - and maybe the's why there are small print runs of great games. I'd go for this way of purchase - it's Kickstarter-esc but you know what you're getting.

Steve steps off the soap box.

This might be a case where kickstarter makes sense. Let the people put the money where their mouth is and make this reprint happen!

All of this sounds great to me. I would buy a copy of this for sure. I've been trying to get a copy in auctions, but apparently I am not trying hard enough.

I bought a copy of Antiquity last year when it got reprinted and was very happy. Would instantly buy R&B as well.

If they're worried about commitment to units sold, I guess they could do a Kickstarter or P500...

What he said ... count me in.

Antiquity was the reason for me to make the trip to Essen 2011 ... R&B would be the reason, to visit Essen 2012 as well ... or Essen 2013 ...

I thought that Splotter sold R&B at Essen 2011, no ? Or perhaps itwas just Antiquity and Indonesia. Don't remember.

I bought Antiquity at Essen 2011 and i am very pleased to own it.

It would be great to kill two birds with one stone and pick it up with The Great Zimbabwe at Essen 2012.

Count me in too for R&B !!!

I would definitely pick up a copy of R&B if reprinted. I was lucky to get Antiquity when it was recently reprinted.
