I believe Stronghold was saying October. No specific date though.

CoolStuff still has it listed as September 10th, but who knows if that is correct or not.

Stronghold has also stated September 10th. Since this is such a specific date, I think it's likely correct.

OK - It is the 10th and so far, no one is saying they have it (Cool Stuff, CLS, etc.). Most still slate it for "Sometime in September." Cool Stuff just says "Out of stock."

The 10th is correct as confirmed by the publisher above.

Cool Stuff also reports to have received it:

http://www.coolstuffinc.com/page/1138

They just sold out of their pre-orders already.

They don't show any way to order. The only thing you can do on the page is click "Email me when back in stock." So they must have had enough pre-orders to completely wipe out their stock.

I have pre-ordered from CLS and they haven't posted anything yet. Perhaps they got it, just haven't updated their online page.

Also, checked with a FLGS and they still don't have it.

But I see that Miniature Market does have some listed.

So, it has hit the streets - just not everywhere yet.

I'm on the west coast, and my local game shop usually doesn't get shipments until late afternoon so I won't know how things look on my end for another 5 hours or so but I'm hopeful.

My hunch is that the initial popularity is higher then many game stores anticipated, but they are likely re-ordering today so we'll get it one way or another soon.

Yup! DIAMONDS was available as of yesterday, Sept. 10, 2014 in FLGS/FOLGS worldwide.... but the supply was initially limited, and it will sell out soon...

BUT... I show that the following FOLGS have this in stock now:

- Funagain.com
- MinaturesMarket.com
- Cardhaus.com

There is mMuch popularity on this little trick-taker... :0

If you cannot find one now in the store you usually buy from, fear not! The next container arrives on September 30 (+/- based on the usual ocean freight/customs stuff), so the restock will be back in stores shortly thereafter.


Thanks,

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

This has sold out pretty much everywhere - I didn't expect it to be unpopular but I didn't expect a trick-taking game to sell out like crazy either. Congrats Stephen & Stronghold!

I've been trying to get a copy of this since we played the game with proxy cards and coins from another game. Seriously - get this thing in stores so I can buy several for stocking stuffers! I'm dying here!

Some idiot was selling this game for $50 on Amazon. But with such limited stock he'll likely get away with it. Wish the game was more prevalent...I'd sure like a copy of it.
