Suppressed Memories Availability

Recommended Posts

As someone who just got the game today for X-Mas, I am interested if anyone has heard of any updates to the status of Suppressed Memories and Recurring Nightmares.

The base set I was just gifted still includes the Conversion Kit materials, so I am interested in picking up those parts to add to the collection and get the additional content.

I was able to score a copy of 2nd Ed. MoM on a Amazon Black Friday sale, and later found a copy of the 1st Ed. on eBay. Since then, I have collected Streets of Arkham, Sanctum of Twilight, Beyond the Threshold and Horrific Journeys. I look to pick up Path of the Serpent in time. I have been searching for "Suppressed Memories" for weeks now. Why is this one so hard to find? 

I contacted Asmodee, and even they said they have no plans to reprint or re-release Suppressed Memories, and I wonder why?

In the past days, I did see two listings on eBay for it, one was at 175 USD the other 450 USD, and now both are gone.

This is very frustrating.

The only thing that I can point out regarding FFG reprinting. They have to make sure that they are going to be able to make a profit from the reproduction. It's one thing when people say that they want to get a copy on here. They make up a couple dozen if not less than 100. These prints are not done on an as need basis, so they have to be concerned that if they go through the trouble of printing 1,000 copies of these, will they all sell and will they be at an affordable price point to the company? 

Since you were able to pick up a copy of first edition there is a chance that you can find 'Call of the Wild' and 'Forbidden Alchemy'. These seem to be just as hard to come by though...

If you take the time to scroll through the previous page in this thread, you'll find out why, and it isn't a matter of the economics of reprinting. The explanation comes straight from then-FFG Head of Studio Andrew Navaro.

Yeah, but broken molds can be a part of expense and economics. Developing new monster molds plays into the potential cost of a reprint...

As others have mentioned, a reprint is likely a ways off. The only advice I can offer is to sign up for restock alerts on every online board game store front you can.

I got super lucky in that I got both recurring nightmares and supressed memories some months ago in close proximity to one another from 401games.ca. If you happen to have a local board game store, it doesnt hurt to ask of they have copies.

Everytime I travelled for work, I would ask local stores if they had any copies. There was one in Vegas and North Carolina that did at one point, but I didn't have time to make it over there.

In my searching for Suppressed Memories, I have done exactly this. I think I may have signed up for close to 20 different stores worldwide (both local and online). The only brick and mortar store I found to have 2 in stock was Fodder Cannon Games, in North Carolina... sadly they went out of business months ago - yet their site is still up. The email I sent them was bounced back undeliverable, this is how I found out.

I'll see what I can dig up in Vegas. I have some friends in Texas and Arizona that are looking in their areas as well.

There are a few listings NOW on Ebay, but the cheapest is roughly 200 dollars American.  if I didn't have kids and bills, I would plunk my money into that option. Italian or German still looking like the best option right now.

I'm considering getting an Italian copy. I'm fine with the tile names being in Italian but could someone tell me if it comes with spell/item cards? I don't see them mentioned in the description but I want to be on the safe side. If it does then I will have to give it a miss.

I ordered the italian one and it's on it's way. All you get in the italian versions are the character plastic piece, monster plastics and base, and map tiles. The map tiles will be in Italian but a label maker can fix that.

The item cards and such, character cards, and monster info tiles are in the conversion kit in the base set for 2nd edition

I wonder how many they have, mines been dispatched as well.. Getting orders from everywhere but italy must be odd.
