Old-School Essentials Black Box 2nd Printing

Gavin Norman oldschoolessentials

Following the success of the original Old-School Essentials Classic Fantasy Kickstarter in 2019, the game was published in two forms: the all-in-one Rules Tome and the Black Box set of 5 books.

 

The Rules Tome is now on its second printing, after the first printing sold out in a matter of months! The Black Box is now also sold out, but we've not reprinted it yet.

We get a lot of inquiries about if and when we plan to reprint the Black Box, so I thought it was worth writing a quick blog post about the topic.

Reprint Planned for Late 2021

So the good news is that we are planning a reprint this year!

Producing boxed sets as a very expensive business, so we'll most likely run a Kickstarter to gauge interest in the reprinted Black Box and get a clear picture of how big a print run we should do.

Due to other plans and projects that we have scheduled for this year, the reprint and Kickstarter won't be until the latter part of the year.

Can't Wait?

The Rules Tome is readily available and contains all the same content as the boxed set in a single volume. If you want to get into Old-School Essentials right now, that's your best bet.

    It’s possible we may manufacture the set of books in a slipcase at some point (though no current plans for that), but we likewise almost certainly wouldn’t sell empty ones. (Same issues as with empty boxes.)

    Storing and shipping empty boxes would be an expensive and damage-prone affair, so it’s not something we plan to offer.

    This may be an odd request, but any chance for a box only option? I already have all the books. Thank you!

    >I want to buy the box set of Old School Essentials, how do I do that in the UK, as postage via Exalted Funeral is really high.

    The box set is currently completely sold out. See the post above for more details on the reprint we have planned for the end of 2021.
