$60 for a copy? Yeouch! I'll just keep the ones I already have, thanks.

But kudos to Rick Loomis of Flying Buffalo for getting this awesome game back onto the market.

Yeah, I was tempted, but ultimately $60 was too much for me. I'm sure the reprint will be very nice, but my Handy Rotary and Powerhouse books are in fantastic shape given how much use they've seen (and likewise my Flying Machines and Balloon Busters)

You have all 4 of the original sets? You're just showing off, now!

I guess I'll have to content myself with my Handy Rotary and Balloon Busters books, along with Wingleader, Jet Eagles and the Star Wars Starfighter Combat Battle Books. cool

Oo, I never saw the Starfighter books. I used to have Wingleader and Jet Eagles, but I never liked either of them and sold them. I always felt that it just didn't work well, unlike the WWI dogfights.

I don't recall them being all that much cheaper back in the day so I don't think it was a bad price to pay for such a cool, innovative game, if you wanted to own them or never got a chance to...

Some retail stores probably purchased a few copies, so all is not lost.

$60 bucks is more than what I paid for the originals... I too own all 4 of the originals, the western one, the battletech series and all the fantasy ones from Nova. whistle

I'm still on the lookout for a copy of Dragonriders of Pern: The Book Game.

If I'd known I'd have kept my copy - I sold it years ago for next to nothing.
