Looks like there's a reprint finally coming out for this. But it seems to be a different theme...I'm not really sure? I've definitely been keeping an eye out for a reprint since the current prices are pretty outrageous, so hope this is good news for some folks.

Per Rio Grande's website, this is being re-released with the designers original theme. I can't wait for this one. [geekurl=http://www.riograndegames.com/games.html?id=443][/geekurl]

and suddenly I see Balloon Cup showing in The Hotness
(which is something I never really look at, but happened to see this time).

Not that the balloon race was all that thematic, how does a pinata fit?

Pretty well, really. Some pinatas are hung high, and others are hung low. You need to swing your stick higher to hit the high ones, giving you all the colored candy that pours out. At least, that's how the theme works in my head.

Hot air balloons have special meaning to us, so we'll be hanging on to our old edition. Without the theme, the game would be unappealing to us as a couples' game, because it is more cutthroat than we prefer.

Wasn't Pinatas the original theme? (not the published one, but the designer's thought)

I assume this will have not only the designer's original theme, but the designer's original rules as well. I wonder if there are other changes as well?

I'm looking forward to seeing what the cards look like. I cannot decide whether I would rather wait for this or look around for a low cost version of the original somewhere.

Anybody heard of a release date yet?

The latest news on Rio Grande's web site from the end of January said it has a planned February release, but that's the latest, and February is almost over...


edit: I e-mailed Rio Grande and they still have it planned for late February...

Does seem kind of steep for what you get in the box.

Shame it is so expensive. Guess I'll just stick with my homemade Balloon Cup version.

I wouldn't switch for any price. I like my Artscow cards, the oversized wood cubes plundered from a thrifted Risk...and best of all, my custom bag from hot air balloon fabric from Hobby Lobby. Oh, I mounted the mountains/plains cards on coasters.
