Does anyone know if this is going to be reprinted? The lowest price I can find on the internet would be around $50 with shipping.

There are a multiplicity of new and used copies for well under that here and on eBay. I'd guess a reprint is rather unlikely given how little nonDominion activity RGG has had lately, or (if this is one of HiG titles transferred to ZMan) how slow ZMan has been in pursuing reprints much more clamored after.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

Also purely idle speculation on my part, but I agree that this seems unlikely to get a reprint. It's a comparatively older HIG game and while it's from a famous designer, it has a lot of copies in the market already.

Z-Man mostly seems to be concentrating on newer releases (with exceptions for evergreens like Carcassonne).

Rio Grande has apparently removed Samurai from their website recently.

Shipping to Canada is really darn expensive when it's not from a store. I'll probably just ship it to a post office across the border. Thanks for everyone's input! I won't wait for a miracle.

Maybe some copies of the currently available Finnish edition can be found in Canada as well...? http://www.lautapelit.fi/product.asp?sua=1&lang=1&s=783

So I was smart getting this in April while Amazon had a few copies left at a regular price, and I knew there was going to be a transition period with the game going over to Z-Man. I grabbed a copy of El Grande at a LFGS as well knowing it would be some time before it came back.

Which changes quite a few rules for the worse.

I asked Hans im Glück about a reprint, and that was their answer:

"we are sorry, but Samurai is since many years out of program, and the rights of the game are back at the author Reiner Knizia. So we can’t say, whether a reprint is planned in the next time. "


Now the game is 21,9Eur at http://www.lautapelit.fi/ till this Friday! Yay!

I made an order, because maybe these are the last copies of the game.
I share this with you, so you won't miss the train!
