After spending some time scouring the usual online stores for a copy of the base game, I decided to email Rio Grande Games to find out when the reprint that was shown on their website was going to happen:

My message:
Quote:
It seems almost impossible to get hold of Race for the Galaxy in the United Kingdom. Is there any update on when the "reprint" that is mentioned on the game page on this website, will start to reach European distributors?

Thanks for your help,
Damien


And their polite and fast reply:
Quote:
The game has been reprinted and will be shipped to distributors next week. Thanks

Jay


Just thought I should share the good news for anyone looking for a copy.

Cheers for the idea, but sadly from their FAQ

Where does Tanga ship to?

We only ship our products within the continental United States. The exception to this rule are magazines and t-shirts where we ship in all 50 states. We do not ship outside the country unfortunately for our amigos down south and even our 朋友 way out east.


I did just try to order, in case their process had been updated within the last 2 years, but outside US isn't an available option on the shipping interface.

Your recommendation however is clearly a great one for US based BGGers, so I've popped it in the main Hot deals forum, with credit assigned to you


**edit to add hot deal mention**

Does the reprint change the current game? I ask because this game has ben on my radar for some time, but I don't want to jump on the Tanga deal if the game and the rules are gonna change in only a couple weeks. I would rather just save my money and buy the newer game if that is the case.

AFAIK base RFTG reprints have changed absolutely nothing with the actual game. At most some rulebook typos fixed kind of thing.

Correct. The very first printing (2007) came with both German and English rules and reference cards. All later English print runs dropped the German items, while the English rules got a few minor rules clarifications.

There has been no changes since the first 2008 English printing and no changes are currently anticipated.
