I was told directly by the publisher that they purchased a very large number of copies initially. Which means we are 1 to 2 years away from an improved version. That is, if they reprint it.
Stinks for me because I love the game but won't purchase it in its current condition.
Maybe you should buy it now because if it's reprinted in two years (from now) the present dice should last until then, and the game is fun.
