Any updates on when we might expect a new printing?

Reurecting this thread ...

The link above does not work anymore. Anyone know what's up with this game? It seems like a very popular game so I'm wondering why it's still out of print.


Yeah, no kidding. Everyone loved KDL. (Though I, for one, prefer the original Cheapass version that was actually cheapass.) I have friends who are still asking about it. Whatever happened?

Oh, whoops, I take that back: I just went to the Cheapass site and clicked around, and hey: it's back in print. For some reason, you buy it not from Cheapass, but from Funagain Games instead:

The good news: it's a lovely looking thing. The bad news: it's forty frickin' bucks plus shipping.

That's right at the "Man, I dunno" price point for me personally -- especially since I remember buying the perfectly good original Cheapass Game back in 1998 or so for, what was it, ten bucks? Forty dollars is kind of a lot for a game that's basically backwards Clue. By way of comparison, Clue is available on Amazon for about $12, and there are a bunch of excellent games for under $40 -- Forbidden Island is $14, Pandemic is $29, Ticket To Ride is $32, Settlers of Catan is $35. If I want a fast fun game for a few people, there's stuff like Love Letter and Coup -- those games play in ten or fifteen minutes and cost under $15.

Okay, Kill Dr. Lucky scratches a very particular itch. As I said above, everyone loved that game. But I'm just not sure I can justify $40 for it. Also, I *liked* the old Cheapass games. They took up a lot less space, for one thing. If Cheapass Games is no longer in the business of making cheapass games, they should change their name to Just Another Small Gaming Company or some such.

Funagain Games is an online game store. They might be the "recommended" store for this product from Cheapass Games, but they are not the only one to carry it. You can find it in the Paizo store, as well as many other sites, such as Amazon.


And it's $36 at Paizo, $37 at Amazon. And at Paizo, you can get free shipping if it's part of an order of over $100. Huh.

Actually it's $10 off order over $100, not completely free shipping :3

Hey, Kill Dr. Lucky Fans! There is a new board coming out for Halloween this year: It is the "Doctor Lucky's Mansion That is Haunted" expansion board. It comes with rules for playing all characters as ghosts trying to Kill Doctor Lucky and a new board.

NOTE: This is NOT a full game. It's a new board and rules for the Original Kill Doctor Lucky.

Link: Doctor Lucky's Mansion That Is Haunted. They also encourage you to preorder one from your FLGS.

Picked up the Haunted Mansion over the Holidays.
Haven't had time to play yet.
Looks interesting.
