Is there a deluxe edition for this game coming out this year? I saw it in a geeklist previewing 2008 games, but haven't heard of anything about it since. Could somebody confirm it for me? I really like Hey! That's My Fish! but haven't bought it because of the ugly components.

That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

Yes.

Phalanx Games hoped to have it available for June 2008, so it must be fairly imminent.

Larger tiles, bigger box, and painted model penguins in four different poses.

Although the wooden colored penguins are fairly lame, most people I know seem to think the existing tiles look fine. I'd hate to have it in a bigger box with bigger tiles... for me that would just be less convenient for carrying to game meetings and for storing at home.

I've got to agree with Russ here. The game already takes up a considerable amount of table space as it is. I would hate to see the game get bigger.

PS- Heh, I actually LIKE the colored wooden penguins.

I like the game as it is too. The only annoying aspects, if you will, were the set-up time and lack of game board where the pieces might fit. For those of us that suffer from OCD, the misaligned pieces during the course of the game are maddening. So, I enlarged one of the files available here and printed it out a hex map of the tile layout on one sheet at Kinko's which helped quite a bit...and, yes, I also have an acrylic border set to keep Settlers of Catan pieces together. meeple

Really?!? I'm actually enthralled enough with this little game to consider forking out the money for a deluxe edition!

I wouldn't mind having a "deluxe" edition with e.g. very nice wooden tiles (if someone wanted to give such a thing to me as a nice gift...), but I wouldn't want it in a bigger box. It's already in an unnecessarily large box, which is a discourager for me when I am packing games to go to a games meeting.

I like the penguins in Pingvinas more. I find both the penguins and hexes in Hey! That's My Fish! very hideous, and am strongly hoping that the Deluxe Edition will have better components.

I really wish the components (specifically the hexes)) will look as good as those in Ice Flow. If the Deluxe Edition doesn't look good, I've hatched a diabolical plot to use Ice Flow components to play H!TMF! Polar bears > penguins devil

I like htmf and would be interested in a deluxe edition. I think you all worrying about box size worry to much.

I think you probably don't walk with your games in a carrying bag to meetings, and probably have more shelf space than I do.

Oh those penguins look fancy. Very cheeky. And it looks like they have tails that are large enough so that they won't fall over too easily.

I like the 3D look of them no doubt, but for a Deluxe edition? I was expecting something maybe a little fancier. Perhaps the ice floes and box will be better though!

Thanks a lot for the link! I'm happy with the penguins. Now I pray for Ice Flow-like ice floes.

The "Deluxe Edition" was released in Poland a few weeks ago (in fact, this is the only Polish edition of this game).
Here's a photo of the game:

I love HTMF, I even gave it as a gift a few times and have heard no one complain about the pieces. Now I wouldn't mind the deluxe, then I can give the version I have as a Hand me down for my three year old to use without supervision.

Believe it or not, I prefer the current edition. I like the wooden penquins. I like them better than the ones in the deluxe edition.

I must be missing it -
what's "deluxe" about the deluxe edition?

All the penguins are uncute, whether wood or plastic.
Did they really determine that the only upgrade for this game was making "cool" plastic penguins with a different pose?

The rest was already deluxe from the beginning. Yo.
