The company is going the crowd-funding route because they're still now sure how popular the reprint will be. If enough people show interest, it'll happen. If it fizzles, it'll stay OOP--and prices for the original will likely get a boost.
According to the announcement, the new edition will include:
- A whole new phase (color) with private deck.
- Options for a 5th player.
- A graphical redesign.
- An updated rulebook.
- Additional modules.
It's scheduled to go live in March, on a German crowd-funding site.
