Inventory Numbers

Asking for Trobils is completely out of stock.

Reprint

Kraken Games is very happy to announce that Asking for Trobils is being reprinted by Breaking Games!



TrobilMakers Expansion

The expansion has been put on hold until the reprint (see above) has been made and distributed. It has been finished in design and we will talk with publishers to get it made depending on the success of the reprint.

Too bad it will no longer come with all the cool bits but a more readily available and affordable game means I will actually be able to get a copy.Hooray!

If TrobilMakers is released, will it be compatible with the 1st or 2nd edition as far as the components are concerned? (I realise that you can't answer the question now but it is something to think about.)

Can't wait for the reprint!

I was going to order from your site just now, but shipping to Norway cost $70, more than the game!

I know, unfortunately we ran out of EU stock a while back. We'll be sure to update the news forums here of any news about the reprint.

A couple months later and still no updates. I know Kraken Games were in talks to have another company distribute a reprint of the game. Still eagerly awaiting word on when or if it is ever going to happen.

It is going to happen, but unfortunately, things move extremely slow in the board gaming world. We will certainly let everyone know.

Shame about downgrading the bits. The trend in boardgaming is the opposite ... I think hoping for a deluxe version of this game to come out is probably unrealistic, but we can dream ...

I would totally take one if there was a way to get it where the shipping wasn't going to cost more than the game itself.

Amen!

@krakengames: Could you check if it was possible to get shipping around 20-30 usd? Amazon often sends with prices around there, using Fedex's new international package service.

It's moot now that we're out of print and stock, but we were using a different system than Amazon. Good for what we needed until we ran out of stock everywhere except Australia

Edit: Now out of stock everywhere.

I just have to keep an eye out for someone trying to sell off an old copy I think. I'm not all that excited about the new print of it without all the cool bits.

Someone out there must be tired of Orange by now. Anyone willing to sell? LOL

Gotta encourage MeepleSource to do a kickstarter at the same time for the wooden bits like they have for other campaigns.

The only wooden bits are discs, cubes, and a unique carrot cut. The cubes and discs are easy to get, and I believe you can find carrots.

I know BGG Store has a couple for sale, but their $100 or more. Every now and then I see one or two on ebay for about the same cost.

So the acrylic gems will not be dropped from the new game? I was assuming that those would be getting replaced as well. I appreciate the lower price tag (and a reprint on top of that should lower the cost of used ones a bit since its technically in print again). I know I can find all the bits elsewhere, it is just a pain to have to track them down myself. I already plan on getting the reprint at some point though, if for nothing else than to do a video review of it and it's changes over the original.

I bet Christian has a copy of the original sitting on his shelf that could go to a fan who was late getting on board and wants to review the game.... lol

For those interested, Meeplesource sells carrot bits.

It's very possible to pimp one's copy of Trobils to make it into a deluxe version.

You could buy some of those gummy slugs for the slugs. More thematic than discs and cubes.

Or gummy worms, then when the game is over you eat them and you are all Trobils eating Trobil bait!

Really sad the expansion isn't making more progress.
