In a previous post someone mentioned having won game #5 off the printing press in some tournament. Are the pre-ordered games numbered?

The preordered games were part of some sort of contest, where for every 100 or so games ordered one person would win an autographed copy which was number 1, 2, 3, etc off the press. I think they gave away about 6 or 7?

I suspect the #5 mentioned in the other post was a proof. It sounds like the majority of the games (9 metric tons worth) are still in transit. I have no clue if those are numbered or not, but I would suspect probably not.

The free numbered / signed games were going to be distributed as follows: #1 for the cover design contest winner, #2 for a random drawing from those people who placed pre-orders; and additional copies added to the drawing starting at #3 for every additional hundred starting at 800 copies pre-ordered.

So, if they already gave away #5, I guess they didn't get 1000 pre-orders?

Well, the website does say "Ordered: 412", though I recall seeing it stuck there for months while people were still posting and saying they'd just placed an order, so I assume that they just stopped updating it at some point.

The world may never know.

I think you mean Karl-Heinz Schmiel.

The first five games off the press were shipped airmail to Canada. #1 - 3 are being held for other contest winners (ie. artwork winner). I opened #5 for the Fallcon tourney and since I won my table, Rik and Torben gave me the copy (they were placed in the box in a specific order so they knew the order). I believe only the first case is being Hand numbered by Renier K. Numbering all preorders would be time consuming or costly by machine.


This is correct and so is the previous post stating Karl Heinz Schmiel.
