“If you'll remember back in the '70s and '80s, when you joined Judges Guild, every month they would send you a form that would look like this, except not as good,” Goodman Marketing Manager Brendan LaSalle told ICv2 at GAMA Trade Show. “These were all originally printed on newsprint, and they were all going to hell…. Everything was just rotting. We have completely rescanned them and recovered them. We have all that material collected forever in this one giant, oversized collector's edition."
The print run is going fast and there will probably not be another one, Goodman Games Publisher Joseph Goodman said. “It's going to be one run,” he said. “It's way too expensive to reprint. I printed what I thought would be enough. We just had a retailer place an order for 20. I don't think it's going to last that long."
Judges Guild Deluxe Collector’s Edition was Kickstarted last year, with $115,112 pledged from 874 backers.
