It still doesn't appear to be on their website. It was however included in last week's ad.

Yes I have seen them at 3 or 4 stores, and I bought mine there. I believe that's where most/all of us are getting them.

kyle...what's you take on the quality of the components? I see a number of posts where people had issues with stickers on dice, tiles have punching issues, cards are way too thin, etc...

Well I cover it a bit in my review here:

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1039269/hasbro-goes-rogue

But to go into more detail:

Boards: The boards are a slightly glossy cardboard and are fairly thin. I can't think of a comparison right now--maybe like the newer Robo Rally boards? They work fine though and I had no trouble punching them.

Tokens: Tokens are punched out of the same cardboard. I didn't have any trouble punching mine and they look fine.

Cards: The cards are the same cut and card stock as Monopoly Millionaire Deal, so they are a bit flimsy but serviceable.

Minis: The minis are similar to any modern Risk game, though they have unique molds for each class. They are decent molds and seem fairly tough (but harder plastic, not bendy like War of the Ring or other FFG games).

Dice: The game comes with blank indented dice as in Yahtzee Jr. You sticker them yourself. I had no trouble with these, same deal as in C&C games and the like.

The components are definitely the weak point, but if you've played recent Hasbro fare your expectations will be about right going in.

Picked up mine at Target and saw it in two different Target stores. Not listed on-line though.

Components are pretty much what I've come to expect in any Risk game. Note the game is not shrink-wrapped. It just has manufacturer sticker seals on the bottom to sides of the box. Overall worth the money for getting it on sale at $24.99. I'll probably sleeve the cards though. The FFG green packs seem to fit nicely.

I got some mayday sleeves that fit them perfectly. I'll update with the model # later if anyone wants to know. They were $2.25 for a 50 pack.

I'd love to have a # for good-fitting sleeves - I want to pick some up probably this weekend or so.
