Cave Troll is a good game.

This thread just reminded me that Asmodee bought Plaid Hat Games, which still makes me a little sick, but I guess it's not the same company any more. Also I'm guessing they had the sale so early because they wanted to clean house before they sold themselves to that private equity firm.

I finally bought a copy of both Cave Troll and Drakon, after FFG trying to clear out their stock for the past few years. They'll likely be selling them again next year too, I don't think copies are flying off the shelves. Also picked up Fairy Tale, Baron Munchausen, the Elder Sign expansion, the Star Wars retheme of "Cold War", and a number of the large X-Wing ships I was missing. Kind of a shit sale this year, but I still managed to spend $120, plus the shipping cost. Should be receiving my package later today, so hooray for a mini Christmas in early November for myself.

Question; will FFG ever reprint Wiz-War or is that game just gone until a 9th edition is released?

I went to it a few days ago and bought Crossing and Fairy Tale, which I received today. Bringing Crossing to Trashfest NE.

I wonder if they'll do a sale around the more traditional Black Friday time-frame?

Who knows? The game is still in the reprint que, but it's been in that state for years now.

Notable, especially for this thread, that the last expansion was on sale last year for $10, but not even present in the sale this year.

Is that a good sign? I'd like to think so, but that could also mean just pure abandonment.

So, I'll resort to the Magic 8-ball as an oracle.

The portents it has given for your question are thus:

"Wiz-War is dead".

Then I smashed the oracle for its insolence.

You’d be surprised. The Plaid Hat folks are largely the same group. Same mentality. Same risk taking.

I'm not sure FFG even has the rights for Wiz-War anymore. There was some discussion recently about a ten-year mark being hit, which coincided with the previous terms that Tom Jolly had with Chessex (if you think this Wiz-War drought is bad...)

The rights may have reverted to Tom by now. Note, this is speculation based on threads I'm not going to bother to dig up. You can treat it as 100% bullshit.

I was looking at Golden Distribution's website yesterday and noticed they have FFG on their list of carried manufacturers, which seemed odd since they went Alliance exclusive like a year ago. The list of products appears to be all the stuff FFG can't sell and dumped on Golden. The items are very similar to a lot of the items from the holiday sale. Last item on the list? Wiz-War: Bestial Forces. Weird.

After playing it 3 times yesterday, I reiterate: pick up Crossing for $5.

I doubt it. They haven't done so in the past have they ? I think a lot of small retailers try to steer clear of Black Friday to avoid the noise of what the big sites are doing.
