 I sent an e-mail to their customer support. I wanted to let you guys know, they confirmed that the game is still being finished and WILL be released when it is done.

 

If you want the messages, I can provide them, but I don't think it's necesarry. Just letting you all know in case you want to avoid buying a used 1st edition without the errata fixes etc.

That's cool. I wondered if they were revising an overhaul on both Mansions and Forbidden Alchemy, or if they were simply just re-releasing the content of FA with what I and others got in the mail for replacement parts. When they released House of Fears (which was very fun for my first time playing today), I assumed the game was getting a comeback anyhow. It's good to hear you received an official response though to remove any doubts.

 Me too. Though they were not willing to give me a timeframe or date. Just a "keep your eye on the website." 

 

But either way, I am too much of an arkham fan (BOTH games) to resist the inevitable joy in knowing that the game has not been perceived as a sinking ship.

I just received my reprinted Forbidden Alchemy yesterday.  You will know if it is the reprint because there is a sticker that states "Includes Revised Components."  Inside are the revised printing rulebooks as well as the cards.

I only played the yellow matter so far but was a bit disapointed. Although some ideas were great (like the mutations), the objectives and the narrative are of very low quality, I found.

I am interested in ordering Forbidden Alchemy, but how can I be sure that I am getting the revised version?  There are multiple vendors selling it on Amazon.com for ~$26 which is about $10 cheaper than ordering direct (not to mention shipping), but I don't want to get the "broken" version.  If anyone can point me to a specific reseller, I would appreciate it.  Thanks!

UPDATE: I ordered Forbidden Alchemy directly from Amazon.com and received the revised version.  Looking forward to trying it out!

I really enjoyed the time-jumping in Lost in Time and Space. Many locks and obstacles have different outcomes depending on the investigators' time period, and that made them think quite a bit.
