Z-Man gaming question!

We’ve been thinking about it for a while now, and wanted to know what you think.
Would you like to see a new edition of Chinatown?
This new edition would be in a smaller box (Pandemic style) and cost just 39.99$.

So, do you think we should move forward with the project or not? Tell us why! The fate of the game is in your hands!

They need to sell all of their €5 barguin bin stock at Essen first.

The reprint needs to use bigger (normal sized) cards! I would probably repurchase for that.

I'd love to see the day where the "great games" are chronically available in an affordable edition for everybody. I have no need for another edition of Chinatown right now myself, but surely others do, and will as the years go by...

Argh...I traded an arm and a leg for my copy.

Now I find out I could've just waited and bought a brand new game.

There's not too many games where this is not the case. Yep, double negative, sucka!

Unfortunately, I've found as reprints come along they usually get smaller and smaller, not bigger and better.

I just managed to pick up a new copy in Bangkok for $33US, albeit a Chinese version. Looks the same as the Zman edition but is not branded by them, I can only presume it is a pirate...which is dreadful of course, something I certainly do not approve of!

I just bought a 2nd hand copy for 5 Euros, because I collect games and for 5 euros I'm not picky.

Then I came here and see enthusiastic comments for this game. Is there a trick ? Can there be several versions which are very different ?

Give it an ALEA style box & I'd probably purchase a new copy / sell my GIANT one.

Big boxes are no fun (unless they are totally full of bits)

I notice there's a "English/French third edition" for 2013 on the main page now... Hopeful speculation or has something been confirmed that I don't know about?

I would definitely purchase one if they re released it. I'm dying to play it. Negotiation games are my favorite.

I emailed Z-man just to add my voice to those wanting a reprint. (I also mentioned that some feel the end-game is disappointing as each player can just calculate exact worth, so maybe they could tweak that, if they did reprint). This was their reply:

Quote:
There is a reprint of Chinatown planned for 2014.
I know that there where some things that were fixed and polished from the previous edition.
Once we have more news about the game we will announce it on our website and Facebook page.

Have a great day,

They said it will be list priced at $39.99 . You can already preorder it from miniaturesmarket for $27.00 . I asked z-man about component quality since the older version listed for $70, and they said the only difference in component quality is that the wooden chits for each player will now be plastic. But that doesn't bother me, I appreciate the price drop.
