Do you think there is any possibility that FFG is waiting until GenCon to announce a new/reprinted Runebound? Makes sense to me...
GenCon and Runebound

It would be really nice of FFG to create it so that if you still have your Runebound stuff it's not a complete waste the way they did with Descent.
It would sure make a lot more sense than more Talisman stuff. I mean, why remake the inferior predecessor anyway, and if you do at least also have the successor available.....duh!

I'm hoping for....maybe just a REPRINT of the 2E if no new edition is coming. I can't even afford to pick up a copy.

First of all I think a simple reprint after 3 years of inactivity is out of the question for FFG. They just don't do things this way.
A "revised" edition on the other hand seems much more probable to me.
It could have some new artwork in accordance to the refreshed style of the Terinoth line of products, plus a slight twist of the rules that would still make it compatible with the 2nd edition BUT you 'd have to use a conversion kit or different stats or something (so old owners would not complain but still be tempted to buy the new version).
Other than that, I think that with the Witcher adventure game coming out soon (and very probably at GenCon) a new Runebound would be a direct competitor thus a bad commercial choice.
I think Christmas would be a better time to bring out Runebound - that is IF they are planning it at all, of which we have no clue.
And that being said: I WANT A REPRINT NOW PLEEEEEASE!!!!
