    Okay all, we have three pages just in this thread. I am going to do one last scour of the rest of the Runebound forums this week and then get the petition site ready to go.
     
    I truly believe we can get this done and strangely, it was the announcement of a new edition of Dungeonquest that I think is an encouraging sign that FFG has not abandoned older games.
     
    So please contact any gamers you know that you think would be interested in Runebound - either a 2nd edition reprint or a new 3rd edition and get them to add their voice here and to the petition site that I will link here hopefully next week!
     
    Terrinoth awaits!!!!!!!

    I saw the comment about Runebound being PvP. Wrong! As stated, in multiplayer it's a race and if you waste time engaging in PvP combat remember that the world's "clock" is ticking; this isn't Talisman where you have all the time in the world to screw over your opponent.
     
    Lastly, Runebound plays beautifully as a solo game. Try it using the Doom track or the Threat counter. You have to balance between leveling up in encounters and getting to cities to get good loot. I wonder if the person who mentioned Runebound as being meant originally for PvP was thinking of Runewars as that game is absolutely PvP.

    I am guessing that the transportation by ship is an economical decision by FFG. WotC/Hasbro has a lot more dosh and shipping by air is not a problem for them. I doubt that FFG has that kind of capital. Remember too that shipping by air is based upon weight and is quite expensive whereas shipping over sea is measured in volume and the cost difference is significant!
     
    When I moved to Europe I had considered moving everything by air. I am a professional musician and magician and I would have loved having my instruments and books with me on the day I landed here. But the cost to ship it all was in the five figure range by air! By sea, the whole thing cost just over 3,000 USD door to door and that included packing and insurance. The downside was that I had ti wait five weeks for my stuff to arrive.
     
    LOTR has become a huge game. The number of blogs and other resources for the game seem to only be rivaled by MTG. Perhaps FFG hadn't anticipated the potential of the game that has become "pasteboard crack."
     
    But, I have rediscovered other games in addition to replaying LOTR with new decks. If The Road Darkens and the first APs for VOI don't come out by mid-June, then I am going to pick up a couple of expansions for Thunderstone: Advance - which I might add is a brilliant game and not at all expensive.
     
    Just think though my lady/fellow adventurers, in a couple of months' time, we'll be debating what cards are now really "have to build a deck around these!" necessities.

    I simply cannot believe all of the infantile whining I've read in this thread. I am as anxious for the next Saga Expansion and the APs for The Voice of Isengard as anyone else. That said, why would FFG "lie", i.e, intentionally make a false statement? As much of a cash cow and precious (sorry) licence as LOTR is, the last thing FFG would do is make intentionally misleading and/or false statements. 
     
    The Lord of the Rings intellectual property is quite jealously guarded as it should be. I am confident that FFG is well aware of this and would do nothing to lose that licence.
     
    I will assume that most if not all of us have most/all of the LOTR: LCG sets. With the immense possibilities of decks yet to be built in the card pool as it is, why not try some deck building and take on some quests with a whole different approach if you are so impatient? If that doesn't strike your fancy, how about doing something else until these new products are released?

    I read some impressions of this game on Rock, Paper, Shotgun, and the writer stated that Shadows of Mordor made him want to play Assassin's Creed.
     
    This one is simply not worth the money even if the combat is tight. I think that certain properties such as LOTR do not need changing or rebooting. Perhaps when it plummets to 10 USD on a Steam sale I might pick it up provided there are no APs being released.

    Hi all,
     
    I am readying the petition, the letter, and I'm even going to phone - and international rates are expensive. But, I think we can do this folks! I would like to ask for the next two weeks for everyone here who has stated that she/he will sign the petition to get the word out to gamer friends/acquaintances/enemies who are not registered on FFG but who you think would like to play Runebound to create an account and add their voices here.
     
    Also, when you see other threads about a reprint, PLEASE direct the poster to this thread? I really think it would be a good strategy to have a huge thread to show to FFG.
     
    I really have a LOT of faith that this can happen.
     
    What I will do also is post the letter I will send to FFG here first for community approval and suggestions for editing before I send it to FFG. By then I will have the petition site set up as well.
     
    Best,

    I am with you, but, being a magician I have a strong sense of pragmatism. [sleight of hand artists are very pragmatic and more than a bit skeptical]. But, how about in addition to your idea, we set a specific date and (I am being serious now) have everyone post her/his interest in RB 3rd ed.?
     
    It seems that requests for a new Runebound are scattered all over these fora, but, perhaps one thread which attracts a huge number of posts just might wake FFG to the fact that there IS a genuine interest in this game? 
     
    Runebound is a great game and perhaps an effort could also be made to attract PC gamers. Many boardgamers are already avid PC gamers like myself but I think there are many more who have not realized the richness of the board game world. As I write this, I am thinking of classic PC games that are similar to Runebound's mechanic and the following PC franchises are classics:
     
    Heroes of Might and Magic, Age of Wonders (the fourth iteration, curiously referred to as Age of Wonders III is due out very soon), Disciples, and King's Bounty immediately spring to mind. None of these games are one offs and none of these games ceased after a second "edition." 
     
    King's Bounty includes the original, the remake in the mid-2000s, King's Bounty: Armored Princess and its expansion Crossworlds, and 2013 saw King's Bounty: Warriors of the North. [N.B.: Off all these games, King's Bounty is perhaps the closest cousin to Runebound].
     
    Heroes of Might and Magic is now in its sixth iteration and that sixth iteration even has an expansion.
     
    The Disciples series has three main editions, and the second and third editions have significant "expansions."
     
    Additionally, if FFG reads these boards, it should realize that there are a LOT of people who have recently found out about Runebound but simply cannot find it in their gaming stores, so, they are paying exorbitant prices on eBay for the game and its expansions. FFG must realize that this is lost revenue.
     
    I would be willing to draft a letter and a petition to Fantasy Flight Games and attempt to contact the company directly. If I receive enough responses in this thread, I will set up a petition for all to sign that will be sent directly to FFG.
     
    If we want this, we need to make a concerted effort such that FFG sees the financial feasibility in creating a third edition. The mechanic of the game is sound as evidenced by its popularity here as well as other boardgames like MageKnight which have taken the Runebound experience and reaped the benefits. A quick look at Board Game Geek shows that MageKnight is still one of the hottest games around. That coupled with the strong success of PC games with the same or similar mechanic as Runebound plus the community's desire for Runebound could coalesce into a powerful and persuasive argument that would appeal to FFG. It could well be that from their point of view, a new Runebound could be a financial risk; they are of course correct. But, if the company can glean a truly coherent sense that the demand is there, maybe, just maybe, it could happen.
     
    There is precedent, albeit in mass media. In 1969, just a few months before Neil Armstrong set foot on Earth's moon, NBC cancelled Star Trek. A small but very determined cadre of fans began a letter writing campaign that ultimately resulted in Star Trek becoming one of the most storied sci-fi franchises on television, at the movies, and in books.
     
    So, SolennelBurn, if you will forgive me for possibly hijacking your post, I propose the above idea. I am with you; are you with me?

    I would be willing to draft a letter and a petition to Fantasy Flight Games and attempt to contact the company directly. If I receive enough responses in this thread, I will set up a petition for all to sign that will be sent directly to FFG.
     
    If we want this, we need to make a concerted effort such that FFG sees the financial feasibility in creating a third edition. The mechanic of the game is sound as evidenced by its popularity here as well as other boardgames like MageKnight which have taken the Runebound experience and reaped the benefits. A quick look at Board Game Geek shows that MageKnight is still one of the hottest games around. That coupled with the strong success of PC games with the same or similar mechanic as Runebound plus the community's desire for Runebound could coalesce into a powerful and persuasive argument that would appeal to FFG. It could well be that from their point of view, a new Runebound could be a financial risk; they are of course correct. But, if the company can glean a truly coherent sense that the demand is there, maybe, just maybe, it could happen.
     
    There is precedent, albeit in mass media. In 1969, just a few months before Neil Armstrong set foot on Earth's moon, NBC cancelled Star Trek. A small but very determined cadre of fans began a letter writing campaign that ultimately resulted in Star Trek becoming one of the most storied sci-fi franchises on television, at the movies, and in books.
     
    So, SolennelBurn, if you will forgive me for possibly hijacking your post, I propose the above idea. I am with you; are you with me?
