Can't Stop mania soon to hit my social circle

According to Boardgame News, Sid Sackson's Can't Stop (BGG, BUY ME!) will be back in print from Ravensburger and Face 2 Face games in a month or so, and should be hitting retail soon after that. How can they possibly improve on the old classic? Not with a mountain-climbing re-theme, but with tiny traffic cones as pieces. How super awesome is that? Of course, now I need to decide if I have to own two copies.

Every time I bring this out, folks ask me where they can get a copy. Sadly, it's been out of print for a while, and I have to refer them to eBay or to simply make their own personal copy if they need their Can't Stop fix. I'm very happy to know that people will soon have the opportunity to play this aqain.

Thanks to Dan for passing this along.

I *love* Can't Stop. It was my most played game last year with 16 plays. And I don't even own it!! Or at least I didn't. A friend gave me a copy off eBay for Christmas! :-)

Of course you have to own two copies. Tiny traffic cones are cool. (And besides, with two copies more people can get in on the Can't Stop action, no more of that "waiting til the next game" nonsense.)

I have played this game. CABS owns a copy. I would also point out to people who are web savy, BSW also has this game for free play! =)
