Anyone know if this will be available to purchase, other than through Game Salute, somewhere in Europe?

As far as I am aware it is now available in the UK.

Regular VivaJava game has been distributed to European retailers, however it was significantly later than the Kickstarter copies.
If this is the case with The dice game - then I would expect it later during summer (earliest), as they have just started to distribute KS copies.

It is widely available in OLGS in the UK and France. As long as you dind't do the mistake of KSing it, you'll have it in no time.

I picked up a copy this week from IGUK, but i notice it is now listed as out of stock. Shire Games may have some, as the latest email newsletter from them mentioned they should have it in stock this week.

Professional response:
Some international copies were sent into distribution and released for retail sale before they could be recalled (Europe & Canada). So far there are no reports of games slipping into retail in the US.

(As a result, as a game designer and consumer, I will have nothing to do with GameSalute in the future.)

For those international backers, I thank you. You are significant and this was not a business decision, in fact it was something that I know Dice Hate Me Games went to significant expense to avoid. And it happened anyway.


As a side note, for Jacob, hopefully there is more news to announce in the coming weeks/months about Europe.

I guess, that the point here is that KS backers SHOULD get copies before game hit retailers. Which I agree with - but there was already enough discussion about it.

Well I did get an order in for a copy from a French store, but I will be interested in finding out more anyway. Thank you for your response, I'm just excited to play this game and add it to my drinking series (Brewmasters, Viticulture and this game.) ☺

Maybe the news will include information about the full version, Angry Dice and other Dice Hate Me Games?

Well, it was approximately what I wanted to say too...! (Sorry if I sounded rude, I didn't meant to. Well, not too much in any case...)

Thanks for the info, it is much appreciated. It is rather sad that DHMG is biting the bullet for Game Salute's... "behavior". The whole situation seems a bit complicated, to say the least...

This is what will make me check your designs in the future with the same enthousiasm that I had so far TC!

Now only if DHMG would do the same, I would gladly support other games they publish down the road.
