I had heard that Formula De was going to be rereleased by Eurogames/Descartes. Does anyone know if this is true and , if so, when will it be rereleased?

I've heard also that it's one of the best racing BG's. Now that I have been hunting for it for a few months I hope I wont be disappointed when I do find it.

Thanks!

As far as I know, Formula Dé is still in print. My copy was released by Eurogames. Are you saying that there will be an updated version?

It's been out of print since sometime last year. It's supposed to be reprinted this year. The various boards are also getting scarce.

And it is a very good racing game (IMO).

Not that I've played very many.

Which store told you that? I still see copies around, although I haven't really been looking lately. I'll keep an eye out this weekend and see if I see any copies up here.

And yes, it is a great game, and well worth it for racing fans.

I'm really considering purchasing this game for my family. Right now I'm debating between Formula De, Battlestations, and Dungeon Twister. Three entirely DIFFERENT types of games but three which I want none the less and can only purchase one.

Does anybody know if the upcoming re-release will have any "improvements" over previous releases or if the game will simply remain the same? There are a few online retailers that still have this game in stock but I'm concerned about buying an older copy while a newer release might have improvements.

Eurogames/Decartes has sold rights to Asmodee for Formula De. Last year Asmodee was supposed to release a new expansion track for the game. But that was delayed and apparently a small printing. Those who still can get the game and the tracks are just lucky.

My local game shop has been trying re-stock its Formula De tracks for over a year. Their distubitor continues to promise them the moon but the tracks only trickle in.

What Asmodee is doing/going to do with Formula De is still a large mystery.

I guess that I'll just order the game from an e-tailer that has it in stock.

Formula De is indeed out of print.

We are working on a reprint but I can't tell you much more for now. This is definitely one of our number one game to reprint in the Descartes catalog.

For your information, EuroGames - Descartes is distributed by ASMODEE starting this week.

I'm catching-up with the few games I don't know in the line and we will try to provide a Customer Service as good as the one we provide for the ASMODEE games.

Formule Dé and all other Descartes/Eurogames games have been bought by Asmodee.
You can see on this page (http://www.asmodee.com/jeux-de-societe/junior/produits/formu...) that Formule Dé is also out of stock on the Asmodee web site but some tracks are still available.

A little late on my part, sorry. The Source on Larpenter Ave. in St. Paul.


Thanks for all the great information!
