I was intrigued by Greg Schloesser's review of Talat on the Opinioned Gamers website two days ago http://opinionatedgamers.com/2012/05/29/talat/ . I'd never heard of Talat. But I do like abstract games and I often need a three player game. The article made no mention of availability, so I searched my favorite (American) online vendors. None had it!

Does anyone know of an online vendor in the USA selling Talat? If the first version (made of wood) was published in late 2008 in Germany I would have thought some vendor in America would have it by now. Though I think I'd prefer the second edition (plastic?).

I bought it personally from Bruce (he even came to my city). Since he is a user here, you might ask him by geekmail.

Hi,
At the moment (6/4/12), there are 6 copies at Amazon.com.
http://www.amazon.com/Huch-Friends-877468-Talat/dp/B005WKN9D...
U.S. distribution is still being worked out.
Please let me know the names/addresses of your favorite online dealers and I'll pass them to the company.
By the way, the plastic pieces in Talat are some sort of hi-grade heavy-weight type of plastic, something like a new Bakelite product.
