Anyone know of a reprint planned in near future?

The last I heard was, no. A statement was made way back when that this game was going out of print with no plans to reprint it. I made sure to pick one up immediately at that time. It is a fun game, though, and deserves to be reprinted.

Not possible in a near future, but we will announce it if there's any change.

Well, sort of...it sounds kind of like something women tell me at the end of mediocre first dates. "This week is bad..."

I believe they are still making copies of the original game, Viking Fury. You should be able to get a copy of that although I believe it's an oversees vendor only.

From what Gary Dicken tells me, it doesn't sound like they're making more, but they're free to sell more. (While F&A was in print, they agreed to not sell it.) After they ship mine, they'll have 25 left.

Many thanks for the heads-up!

Don't you think this game is a prime candidate for Kickstarter?

Absolutely! But they have to keep the price point down.

Herein lies the rub. A (relatively) small number of people want the game badly, but only if production values remain high and the game is offered cheap. Hmm...

Might happen. Don't hold your breath.

Hey Stefan,

Just curious why a reprint is not in the works. Back when I owned a OLGS, I would get up to 10 copies at a time, and they would be sold out in a day. It was so popular, I didn't even get a chance to get a copy for myself. The demand and profit are definitely there for a reprint.

The game my wife wants the most to own, and she isn't a gamer. The production value alone won her over!

Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.

That pandasaurusgames.com page says "early 2015." Is that still accurate? If so, is it too early to quote any timelines? I notice that your new version isn't showing in the "versions" section of the game page on BGG...

Generally the version gets set up after the box art and other information starts to come out.

We will be sharing more information shortly, but the game is slated to arrive in the first half of the year currently, obviously subject to change.

Do you foresee any mechanics or rules or other game changes? Or just art changes?

No rule changes, that said I don't want to say it's "just art" changes either. There has been a substantial redevelopment of the board itself that make keeping track of things like actions taken, good sailing days and the goods in demand as well as end-game far more streamlined. So, while the rules have not changed, things like bad sailing days or moving between sea-regions have been de-mystified and the math largely automated.

It'll all make sense once we start sharing more information.

The entire game is 100% new artwork and components, so that's not going to be feasible since it would take an entire new copy of the game to get you there.

Nathan,

THANK YOU for sharing these details. It certainly builds the excitement!

Next question: Any changes to the saga cards or rune cards?

Good question. The original game, Viking Fury,



has no sea monster Rune card, but the Asmodee version does. The sea monster ended a trading expedition on the shores of Bjarmaland one time. (Fortunately, not my ship!)
