Just out of curiosity, what out of print board game would you like to see make a comeback?

Well my list has actually gotten shorter in recent years! But I still have a few. I'll also list some games that relatively recently did finally get reprints.

Container (recently got a kickstarter reprint)
Dune (recently got a reprint)
Roborally (has had many reprints but they all suck compared to the original)
The Z-Man edition of Arboretum (the art direction and colors in the original edition are so much better imo)
Forbidden Stars (this game probably hasn't aged as well as some others, it has some rules bloat, but it such a deep and evocative strategy game)
Troyes

For me, I'd like to see Invasion America and Shogun.

So there's not a single game you guys would like to see back in print, or just not much interest in this topic?

Invasion America was rereleased a few years ago. Shogun was rereleased as samurai swords a long time ago, not sure if they had a more recent rerelease. How about the pirate game... Broadsides and something? They had a rome one too, what was that?

I don't get to board game near enough anymore. Haven't for decades (since becoming a father). I'm partial the the board game that takes nights to play. That you need to leave... unmolested... on a table for weeks between multiple individual sessions. You cannot play those games and be a parent. Kids do not understand they are not to play with daddy's very cool toys.

So I'm out of the loop on what's in print, what's out of print, what's great, etc. I still get to play a little, so I'm not illiterate on the subject, I just don't feel knowledgeable enough to give useful feedback.

I meant it's certainly the case that there are more games that are out of print than are in syndication. Its not like video games where they can live forever on GoG. But MOST of the REALLY good games get pretty regular print runs. However the sadness is when the reprints are way worse than the original or our super overpriced (looking at your roborally for both cases)
