Hat tip to W. Eric Martin. See here: http://www.2d6.org/2012/08/20-questions-2d6-org-interviews-r... for the full interview...

2D6.org: As a father of 2 young board gamers (ages 4 and 6) who absolutely love The Kids of Carcassonne I would like to know if there are any other kids games being planned? Have you ever considered a “Kids of Dominion” or similar title?

Jay Tummelson: We are always on the lookout for games, which the entire family can play together, rather than games just for children. We have recently reprinted Chicken Cha Cha Cha and plan to reprint Gulo Gulo later this year. As for a “young” Dominion, it is something Donald and I have discussed and may offer in the future.

2D6.org: Speaking of kids games will there be a reprint of Gulo Gulo? If not can you elaborate on what is preventing the reprint?

JT: See above. As for the difficulties in getting it reprinted, you can trace this to the short-sighted response by our government to the spate of “dangerous” games published by some larger game companies, who chose to produce them cheaply in China without proper oversight of the safety of their games. Because of the newly required and expensive testing, these costs can add $5-10 to the retail cost of games from smaller publishers whose print runs are in the few thousands rather than the 10’s or 100’s of thousands like the larger companies.

*sigh* I just ordered this from someone in Europe on Saturday because I didn't think it would ever get reprinted.

Any guesses on when we'll actually see it in print? My 4 year old would love to get this and as long as we can get it for his birthday (without getting fleeced by 2nd hand sellers) in January we'll be happy.

I guess "later this year" means it will hit the shelves conveniently in time for Christmas.

or is it just a straight reprint ?

I'd guess a straight reprint. I don't think they changed anything about Chicken Cha Cha Cha, which he mentioned in the same sentence. It's a pretty simple game, so unless they had some sort of problem with sourcing parts or losing materials I don't know what they would change.

Just people bumping this thread and asking for updates...

EDIT: To give some encouragement here, zoch verlag at least lists it on their website

http://www.zoch-verlag.com/nc/spiele/vergriffene-spiele.html...

...and I don't know if it matters, but it's in stock in German.

After posting a question on Rio Grande Games website regarding the reprint of Gulo Gulo in 2013, here is the answer received on Jan 8th, 2013:

"We are getting close and do hope to. Thanks

Jay"

I asked via mail Rio Grande if they expect to release a reprint soon. The answer was maybe later this year.

Still I managed to find a second hand deal from Germany. There are still a few left at Amazon.de. If you're anxious like me - go for it. Can't wait to play with my son.

I wish I would have done that. It's almost 2015, and no reprint in sight.
