One of my favorite games is a now out-of-print game from Cheapass games called Starbase Jeff. I've been looking for a copy of it for years and haven't had any luck. Sadly, the game wasn't designed by James Ernest but another game designer, so I doubt it will eventually join the other fine games that he has put out for free on the cheapass site.

Does anyone know where I could get a copy of the game?

With the apparent passing of the designer, my guess is that the copyright would revert to his estate (probably his wife). This isn't the time or place to be asking her to release it to the public domain though.

It appears that at least two places have the out of print game for sale, although I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the products they are selling.

BGG Marketplace

Noble Knight this appears to be a sale house middleman like CardShark.

you can check the marketplace, auctions or auction forum periodically. that would be your best bet. I actually have a copy that I am going to list on the auction forum some time in the next few weeks (just depends on when I get everything listed and ready to go). I am hippyhillary on the geek.
