Hi all,

i have been looking to buy this game (Balloon cup) and can not find it anywhere. It seems like it is out of print. Does anyone know of either a place online or maybe their local game shop that has it in stock.

Greatly appreciated

Trip

There are several copies for sale in the BGG Marketplace.

Unfortunately not just OOP, but OOP for quite awhile. Don't think you are going to stumble across one for retail price.

It is out of print. I haven't read anything about a reprint.

As heath said there are a few copies in the marketplace, but they seem to be asking some slightly elevated prices. If you use this website you can see what many of the games have sold for in the past in the boardgamegeek marketplace.

There is a copy on ebay right now that only has a $20 opening bid, but it is located in Canada and shipping is higher.

It looks like the last several copies on boardgamegeek have sold for $30-$45. I got a copy on ebay a few weeks ago for $31 shipped.

Good luck.

There is also Voltage, which is not the same game, but appears to be quite similar.

Used copies of Balloon Cup seem to be quite a bit cheaper in Europe. I have sometimes wondered if someone could scoop up 10 copies over there, and sell them over here for big profit. Ok, maybe not.

I was fortunate to get my copy in a math trade.

It can be played with a Rage deck, if need be.

There're a few ArtsCow decks up in this geeklist. Balloon Cup - Arts Cow Deck

You'll need the following other bits to play:

Rules for the game (can be found in the files section)
5 black cubes/coins/chits/tiddleywinks/items
7 blue cubes
9 green cubes
11 yellow cubes
13 red cubes
A draw bag to randomly draw cubes from
