The status of Z-Man Games
« on: December 29, 2021, 05:33:19 AM »
Does anyone know the status of Z-Man Games?

As I understand it, they have the contract for printing Carcassonne games for the US, but when I go to their website, which connects me to their selling website, shop.asmodee.com, they list 9 of the 10 expansions, who cares about the catapult, and all 9 of the expansions are “out of stock”.

Is there anyone else who is printing Carcassonne games for the US market?

ZMG are the publishers for US, UK and a bunch of other markets. In both US and UK the actual distribution is done through/by Asmodee (and if I remember correctly that is owned by ZMG).
They have been pretty slow with releases throughout the years though, and expansions are always slow to come out.
We felt lucky to see Carc20 only 3 months after the initial release date.

It can be good to try and find shops with some stock, or otherwise try and look international, although I can imagine shipping adds quite a bit
