I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Last month on Twitter, Capes & Cowls creator Robin Spriggs responded to an inquiry from 8th Summit:

Verily, this news 'tis truly momentous, and I fear I am so excited at the sight of it that I may spill forth into my pantaloons in a manner most unbecoming of a gentleman!

If 8th Summit managed to get a reprint of C&C in the pipeline, I'd be so grateful I'd buy every other game they released until the end of time.

Color me surprised! I'm not going to hold my breath, however. I've never understood the creators lack of interest in his own game. At least a first step has been taken. How many more before a reprint?

That would still be cheaper than trying to buy it on ebay.

I wonder why Stronghold did not approach him? hmmm. Maybe they were not aware of this game.

I know that at least one other publisher has approached him in the past, probably multiple publishers. One in particular had trouble getting any response whatsoever, so 8th Summit is already ahead of the game in that regard.

There was similar buzz about a year ago when Spriggs indicated he was open to a reprint. Who knows what will happen?

That is exactly my point. A point that you and many others jumped on my case about saying. shake The fact that he has come to the surface in the last year(?) is news to me and the latest news that he actually responded is a shocker. I am certainly happy about that, but I still do not change my opinion that he pretty did not give much "care" to his game over the last few years. Is it that hard for him to respond? I was under the impression he pretty much ignored any requests to talk or inquire about it. Somehow that upset you that I brought it up. whistle

Interesting that you decided to "jump" in on something that had nothing to do with you.

I think that the one thread is probably more than enough for that particular argument.

Agreed. Good news about the Tweet, though. Hopefully something comes of it.

This is really great news, that Robin Spriggs has repiled to a a potential about C&C coming back.

I for one hope against hope that this DOES happen -- as I want to play the game with my kids and grandkids. I am also one of the many bidders on ebay when the game makes an appearance and, almost ashamed to say I've bid quite alot for the opportunity to get a copy but have yet to win one.

I wish a new printing will happen.

I think what you mean to say is: "phrasing!"

Nope. Robin Spriggs continues to accept proposals, see: https://twitter.com/OGReilly/status/512483580338266112
