Only 250 copies...I'm not surprised they're already sold out. Bruno Cathala is not exactly an unknown designer (and he's my personal favorite which really bums me out about missing this one). Which begs the question, do the rest of us have a shot at getting this game somewhere down the line? If anyone hears of a reprinting, or a formal publishing, please let us know.

As you may read on their website, the designers offered the game to several publishers in the last two years. It has been appreciated, but not to the point of being "bought". Thus the designers opted for a small self-published print (250 copies), in the hope that it'll generate enough interest to convince a publisher to pick the game and give it a "proper release".
Time will tell...

You're right, luke !! time will tell...

the only thing i can say now is that these small print has focused the interest of some "new" publishers. That's give me some hope... but no certitude at this time !

I played it for the first time a couple of weeks ago at St Ju en Jeux and it really is an excellent quick game of deduction and cunning (trying desperately to separate those last two suspects before time runs out!) - I really hope you're able to find someone to republish it.

I'd buy two copies straight away.

This is my first time in Boardgamegeek, i've just registered myself, to say that i'm trully anxious to see this game in the market. I've read the rule, it seems very funny, all the rates are high, from Portugal, France, US, etc. just hope its commercialization soon.

Bruno, best of lucks...

Unfortunately, at EUR 30, it's priced itself out of my interest zone. That sort of price tends to apply to the big Kosmos range and the like. A game of this size and complexity is better compared to something like Clans or TransAmerica, which are priced around EUR 15.

A pity.

I think that's why it needed so much time to be published. It has A LOT of bits, thus the price is higher than what you'd expect (and like) for a "small" game like it.
A (necessary) pity.

I have played the game 2 times and taught the game to others. This is a very nice two player romp with some nice tension.

I wish you luck in getting more copies printed. If you don't, could I have the files? I will definitely make the effort to print up my own copy to play. It will get lots of play here. Excellent effort!!
