I forgot getting a proper reprint of "Up Front"...
"Outlined against a blue-gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as Famine, Pestilence, Destruction and Death. These are only aliases. Their real names are Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden."   Grantland Rice, New York Herald Tribune, October 18th, 1924.

it's not the one that a lot of people sunk hundreds of dollars into on Kickstarter thinking it was finally getting a re-release

I wouldn't mind seeing an updated version of Mosby's Raiders, Carrier, Tokyo Express, and maybe Eastern Front Solitaire, too.

Or you could get some friends...

but why

The Wizard's of the Coast / Wargamer version is fine I guess if you are OK with buying the pieces in a bundle and putting them in a baggie for $60.  As for me, I would love to see a true, in a box, version of the game...that's all.

...and I'd like to see 1979 Erin Gray in a tight blue spandex suit right here in person, but that's not going to happen either. :)

Don't be so negative! The Japanese are developing robots, there's cloning going on, VR is getting better...

Heh heh..I have copies of all four of these!

Trivia time...Mosby's Raiders, when the heat gets too hot, you are allowed to disband, and fade into the countryside. The term the game uses is "skedaddle."

Skedaddle, the definition? "to flee in a panic." I got quite a laugh when I read this.

Games too many to mention. Source of the Nile would be fun. I have considered developing my own version/variant, using random maps. Wouldn't be difficult to do. Just assign a drm-affected chance for terrain, then roll for actions in the new hex. Can get as elaborate as you want.

Me as well. I was looking at just part of the shelf above my computer...but I have way, way too many piles of them throughout this room.
