An explanation of the reprint, please.

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm a new poster interesed in buying the Game of Thrones board game. However, after doing some research I saw that Fantasy Flight is reprinting the game. I'd like to know exactly what this entails. Would it just be making more of the same game? Would they fix problems with it, such as typos, misprints, etc.? Or would it completely change the look and possibly some of the rules of the game?

Basically, should I spend my money buying the game now, or should I wait half a year until a drastically updated version comes out?

Thanks in advance,

Creevy

I chose to buy it now instead of waiting.  I don't regret the decision at all.  It's a great game.   The copies I bought had some issuces like I posted earlier but FFG is sending me parts.  So all and all I am very pleased. 

If you wait you only get the base game.  The expansion will take even longer to get the to printer.

My game shop had two complete set, I picked one up then the next time I went the other set was gone too.  It's gonna start being hard to get until the reprint I think.

 On that same note, I saw that the reprint was listed as "in development".  Does anyone know what that *typically* means for timetable? 3 months? 6 months? 1 year?

I don't know ETA, but one thing is for sure: AGOT is one of the best tactic/strategic boardgames I've ever played.

Here in Italy it's impossible to find in stores. Fortunately in our Games Club we have a copy of the core game and a copy of the expansion...

My personal collection is waiting for the reprint...

Knowing FFG they won't change any rules or include additional material. They may fix typos and other stuff from the Errata, but that'll be all.

The core game ist out of stock all across the country. If you can find a copy somewhere, get it! The expansions can still be found on the shelves of game stores...rarely anyone buys them if the core game is out of stock.

I'm more interested in finding out when the reprint is scheduled for. I couldn't find any reliable information. Anyone know more?

 The only change I'm thinking we MIGHT see is the inclusion of Ports in the base set.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist to play the game once or twice and see how broken the game is without them.
