Since Rio Grande won't be doing their games anymore, Should I wait for the new company to do the reprints?

Why do you have to wait? I don't think there'll be a significant change. If you want the game just grab it.

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.

Well if they're thinking about compatibility between base game (purchased now) and expansions (purchased in the future).

On the other hand, even the same publisher doesn't guarantee that. I bought Base Catan 3rd edition and a few short months later Mayfair revamped it to a completely different thematic universe with 4th edition.

IIRC, Z-Man Games is makes some tweaks to the base game to include more stuff. There's a video interview from GenCon 2012 about it.

At around 2:30. The River should be added back into the base game and that will be the new standard. This was suppose to happen in Sept., but I haven't checked to see if it has happened yet.

Yes, Z-Man's Carcassonne with the River is available now. But, weirdly, doesn't seem to be mentioned on their website.

(Note that this is something that Rio Grande did, in fact, do for a number of years -- that's the version of Carcassonne I have -- but had stopped doing.)

But that doesn't tell us much about what they're going to do with other expansions. But my guess is they'll reprint the ones Rio Grande did, essentially unchanged. Not sure what they'll do about the newer ones, though.

I asked Z-Man about the expansions at BGG CON and they said that they're probably going to be putting them out, but they don't have any plans/schedule at the moment.

I forgot to run back and ask about Carcassonne Kids (which I've been trying to find for my nephew).

I grabbed a Big Box 3 when the RGG news came out, so I'm pretty much covered for all of my Carc needs for the foreseeable future.
