That's excellent news,

Will the reprint have any significant changes?

How much will it, roughly, cost?

And, is it possible to pre-order a copy directly from you?
If not which places are taking pre-orders that reasonably ship to the UK?

Gameplay will be unchanged, but we may make some changes in the exact material. It's still early days, so we are still investigating options (and don't know the price yet either).

We will be offering pre-orders from our website.

Jeroen,
Now that we are well into February , please can you update on the likely re-print date. Thank you.
Mark

Since this seems to be a trend, I guess I will ask about a March update. Any word? Bueller?

There is word but its definitely not what everyone is most hoping to hear.

Joris at Splotter told me that they are still reprinting and that it's been delayed but will "likely be this year".

That's good news to me! Still reprinting and likely this year is much better news that what it could be.

That's actually good news for me also. I just ordered a bunch of games, and I've got a bunch of preorders coming up too, so the chance to digest and loosen my belt is welcome. Not to mention the wallet is grateful.

Will &Cetera be available with it or is just the core game being reprinted?

Probably both (as they are on the same print sheets), but we're not completely sure yet what might change there...

I'd fourth it because I'm only really likely to get away with buying one box but if it had the expansion in it that would be great.
However I really can't see them doing it.

It would make sense to include &cetera as limited edition :
The designing/play testing costs will have already been met for this game.
On the face of it, costs would just be the physical re-printing and distribution.
Factor in the cost of a "Splotter" and I'm sure there is enough profit margin to keep both the splotter guys in business and happy, and also us customers by chucking in the expansion.

Furthermore...a lot more copies would shift...and more quickly, giving a faster return.

Just my thoughts.

^ this.

Being that Jeroen has already stated that reprinting is likely since they share the same print sheets this could be a big win for all involved.

One way to keep the costs down to an absolute minimum would be just having some of the base game boxes include the expansion denoted by a sticker added to the box.

That would save them on the expansion box printing as well as all the extra pallets for the distribution of the expansion sold included rather than separately.

If they split the savings that could provide a slightly higher profit margin for them, some savings passed on to the end customer, and a slightly decreased carbon footprint due to the reduced shipping footprint. A genuine win/win/win for everyone.

I actually wish this idea would get adopted by other publishers too. Tons of gamers just discard expansion boxes when the components can fit in the base game box anyway to save shelf space, and plenty of people buy expansions at the same time they buy a base game.

Thanks for pointing that out! Post edited to reflect that now.

All the rest still applies and it's no less a great idea even if there's no box printing to save on.
