That would be great. With a gencon release it might be a good idea to release some info to get some people excited for it.

Anybody else think Rio Grande's "play the cards close to the chest" approach to generating buzz a touch annoying? This is the second game that I'm aware of in their roster that is slated for release relatively soon, yet little to nothing substantial is known (Roll for the Galaxy being the other, perhaps more exists as these are also the only two upcoming Rio games I'm paying any attention to).

Respectfully: What the hell, Rio?

If I could see the rules, or at least a preview, I'd be willing to put money aside for a title with such an interesting theme, but theme alone should never be the selling point for buzz. If this hobby devolves into the mire video gaming currently exists, count me out (e.g. announcements about upcoming announcements, trailers with no game play, emphasis on superficial improvements over mechanical innovations, etc).

This game is slated to be on somebody's table in less than 20 days. Seems we should know more about it than we do.

p.s. I'd prefer a preview to the rules, but if finding the time to present one is detrimental, the rules make a decent substitute.

If this game is released at Gencon, will Rio Grande be selling it in their room? According to the geeklist and the map, Rio Grande doesn't have a booth this year, but they do have their own room. Will this be where purchases are made? That sounds like a logistical nightmare...

There are usually two vendors inside the hall selling Rio products. They don't sell in the room.

Temporum will not be available at Gencon. I don't know any details - I just know that we won't be demoing it which means that it won't be for sale.

Update, Aug. 5, 2014: Temporum will not be available for purchase at Gen Con 2014. In response to a follow-up from me, Rio Grande's Jay Tummelson said that it "will be released in September", along with Stephen Glenn's Rattlebones. Temporum might be available for demo games in the Rio Grande Games room, but not on a production copy, if it is.

Cool, someone who plays it, please post something about the game since the company seems unwilling to.

I have just learned the games will be produced at the end of September due to a production problem. Thus, the game will now release in early October. Sorry for the delay.
