So, this one is a favorite of mine and I recently introduced it to a group of friends who loved it. The birthday of one of said friends is coming up soon and I was considering FoD as a present but I can't find it anywhere for under a hundred. CSI is out of stock and most E-bay listings are like ninety including shipping. Did this one go oop when I wasn't looking? Either way, I'm glad I have my copy.

Thought it was OOP (and the going rate backs that up) but since I have it, wasn't paying attention. You can check FFG to see if a reprint is due.

FFG is not reprinting it, it is OOP and that way to stay unfortunately. My copy vanished after having to move about a dozen times and I want to get my hands on another copy as well.

This has been out of print now since 2010. No sign on the Fantasy Flight website either of a new printing. However the game is still shown on their website which makes me think that they will eventually. When they decided to not do another printing of Britannia they took that one off their website. The fact that 3 years after it basically sold out from distributors that Fantasy Flight still has it on their website makes me think we will see another printing at some point. Maybe just not really soon.

I thought the same as well, so I contacted FFG and they confirmed that they will no be doing another print run.

If that's the case that is a real shame. This is one of my favorite games going back to the original back in the 80s. Looks like I should go out and get myself some card sleeves to protect the cards if this is the case. Anyone know off the top of their heads the number of cards in the game?

Alternatively Kevin Wilson the designer left Fantasy Flight last year and has gone freelance. Perhaps he has plans for the game with another publisher.

That would be awesome, but I thought it was FFG that held the license for the Games Workshop games. Nothing more I'd like than getting my hands on a copy, it's been a favorite of mine for quite some time. Luckily one of the guys in my group has a copy but I'd like to have my own as well.

There are copies in the BGG marketplace for as low as $65. ($55 if you don't mind replaced components)

Good luck!
