Yeah, I noticed this too.

Perhaps they are waiting to see how the release of the reprinted El Grande sells before they commit to a reprint of the expansions.

Well that bites for those of us who already have a copy of El Grande Though possibly a very good deal for those that don't as the reprint for the expansions had an MSRP of $27.95 by itself, and the MSRP for the reprint of the base game is still looking like it's MSRP will be $39.95.

I still see the Expansions at a couple of the FLGS that I go to. Look around, you should find a copy.

Given most FLGS charge MSRP, it would actually be cheaper to buy the reprint (online for 35% off) that includes both the expansions and the full base game That assumes of course Jay doesn't up the MSRP...

So I e-mailed Rio Grande to ask if the reprint of the expansion will be compatible with the earlier printing of the game (I lucked into the game itself in a FLGS during the fall, but foolishly did not pick up the one copy of the expansion that they had). Jay replied "The new game/expansions should be completely compatible with the old."

That's great -- can't wait until the expansion comes out.

Am I missing somthing? I thought they weren't reprinting the expansions but instead including them only with the full game.

Back in January, it appeared that RGG was planning to reprint the El Grande expansions separately from the game (i.e., two reprints -- one of El Grande, one of the expansions). Several months later it became apparent that RGG is reprinting El Grande and the expansions together in a single game (the Decennial Edition) -- there is not going to be any separate reprint of the expansions.

This is the only thing being reprinted:

It's a heck of a shame that my old copy of El Grande will be devalued
Anyone have a copy of the expansion they want to sell/donate? lol

I ended up picking up the expansion back in the early spring from someone planning to get the reprint when it came out. While I don't regret doing so (since I've been able to play the expansions since then, and the reprint isn't out yet), at this point, the reprint is I believe on its way to stores, and you can probably get the whole Decennial Edition for not much more than the old, stand alone expansions will cost you.

That's true. At least I'll have a spare copy of the King pawn for when I wear that sucker out.
