Great news on the NA edition coming up soon!!!
It's about time! All of the parts have been sitting around the house since October and the base game has been done for well over a year! Longest, 90% finished release ever (now 100%, in case anyone reads that wrong).

Cool. Can I get on the list for the NA edition?
What will happen is that the sale will "begin" with a week or so reservation period for those who own the S&R NA, in which they can lay claim to the same number for 0-to-X. The wait list will begin at the same time, for those who just want 0-to-X, and once that time is up then the open spots will be filled. Shipments will begin a couple of days later. The goal is to ship them all the same day, so it is going to take a bit of coordination on my part, and decently quick turnaround on buyer's parts (reservation copies can be paid any time, wait list will have two days or so to ensure on time delivery). International ones may go out a couple days early, in order to try and get the game into everyone's hands on about the same day. Why? Well...
Regarding this system as a whole, as a gamer/collector/lover of homebrews I got tired of having to continually fight for the next release, staying up until 2 am, buying ones secondhand that I missed, and all that, so I thought that it would be nice to offer the option to people (idea stolen from MRN, though with a couple small changes). Purchasing 0-to-X will then put you on the list for the next NA release, due out later this year (for real this time!).
This could potentially create a situation where all of the copies are sold and spoken for ahead of time, and no one new gets to enter the fun. However, many people will not be interested in anything and everything, some members may no longer be active, some copies were sold off-forum (let me know if you bought elsewhere, including secondhand), etc. If anyone wants to jump to the front of the line and ensure a reservation for 0-to-X, I still have some copies of the S&R NA taking up space on my shelf
. The mostly up to date list of who has what and what is still available is here: http://vintage.nintendoage.com/fo...
. If anyone is interested, just send me a PM. As for you Tim, your partner in crime is holding a nice spot in the nineties. Not sure if you'll have to wrestle it from his grubby hands, or if he'll let it go without a fight.
That little list is also good for the SGP rewards program and yep, someone found the secret in S&R! More info, and perhaps some tantalizing images, on that coming soon.
