20 Most Desired Reprints of 2014 - NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED
Nominations and voting are now closed.
The final results can be found here.
There can be only
Long out of print games
Those are just a few of the terms that are used to describe out-of-print in-demand games. But, just because a game is out-of-print and commanding a high price on ebay doesn't necessarily mean there's enough market to make a reprint feasible... and not all reprints live up to the hype.
In a BGG News article Links: Patching Board Games, Questioning Reprints & Honoring Your Country Eric Martin referenced yet another article on The Rumpus Room by San Il Defanso which asked the question "Is the Age of Reprints Over?".
Taking that question a step further, I'll ask, what reprints are most desired?
Alphabetical listing of nominations
15 Minute Status Updates and Trends
Similar to the 20 Most Anticipated Board Games of 2014 - NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED, I'll open nominations for the 20 Most Desired Reprints of 2014.
Also like the 20 Most Anticipated series, we'll use the thumbs on geeklist item entries for nomination votes, with a poll for the final vote.
Eligibility: Any out-of-print game you'd like to see reprinted in 2014, that isn't already shipping in 2013. Unlike the 20 Most Anticipated, even early release copies shipped in 2013 would disqualify a game.
The term out-of-print can be a bit fuzzy, but we'll use the general definition of "a game that is no longer generally available as a new game in its primary release market(s)."
This is a bit different from the standard definition of out-of-print which generally implies availability from the publisher. I favor the former definition as some games become unavailable from publishers but linger forever at reasonable prices in clearance warehouses or gaming stores.
If anyone has info on a nominee getting a reprint or being an in-stock item, feel free to leave a comment.
We'll follow the same format as the 20 Most Anticipated series: an open nomination phase followed by a voting phase of the top 50 nominees.
When you nominate a game you can use the same tags as the 20 Most Anticipated nominations, including using the [altname][/altname] tags to change the nomination from the BGG game name.
For now I'm not anticipating a need for categories, but if there is we can open them up.
