Greeting All,

A spirited debate ensued at the CLS Games Warehouse Game Day over this past weekend. 'CyberBunny' -- a BGG member and Game Day attendee who would rather not be identified because any association with CLS Games is both personally and professionally damning -- insisted that Rio Grande will be reprinting THIS GAME because of its strong appeal to Euro-Gamers. Michael "Big Sweaz" Sweazey confirmed that he too had heard rumors of a reprint.

However, we have checked with our sources at Rio Grande and were told that, "We have no plans to reprint at this time." I suppose that does leave them some wiggle room, since Rio's "plans" could change. But, I doubt we will see THIS GAME from Rio any time soon.

I think the game needs to be re-themed to appeal to today's gamers.

Just remember that post.

Big company NDA prevents further info, but I swear to God, you better remember you said that.

I'll be revisiting this post in the future with details why.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Funny timing, since NestorGames, on the other hand, announced today they ARE printing an edition of the game:

NESTORGAMES edition
