Great! Now maybe people will stop trying to get $100 for a used copy on Ebay.

Is Rio Grande also planning a reprint of the expansions? Thoughthammer says yes, but the rio grande site is not so clear.

Whoa! Where have you seen that? I didn't see any auctions above the $35-$40 mark. Maybe I should sell my copy and then buy the reprint...

Todd,

The reprint from Rio Grande is supposed to include the expansions. I don't think they'll be reprinting the expansions separately.

I already have El Grande and sincerely hope to be able to buy the expansions as a seperate set.
Is Thought Hammer the cheapest? I just bought a few games from them last week and could not find a cheaper shop.

No, I'm pretty sure the expansion will also be getting a reprint, and you will be able to buy the expansions separately. I e-mailed Jay, explaining that I had the original game, and wanted to know if the new expansions would be compatible with my original version of the game, and he replied "The new game/expansions should be completely compatible with the old."

I also note that Thought Hammer has a separate listing for the reprint of the expansion:

RGG has changed their minds... and are not making available the expansions as a seperate item And the MSRP on the 10th anniversary edition that includes the expansions keeps going up (as of May 27th it's $54.95)... ie. pretty close the the sum of the originally listed MSRP's for the base and expansions before they decided to bundle them together and screw those of us who already own the base (base was going to be MSRP $39.95, and expansions around $27.95 I believe).
