If so, where can I pick it up? I looked for Cool Mini or Not on the Exhibition Hall map but didn't see it.

Thanks!

It is listed under CMoN 509. Looks like they have a pretty big booth.

Not have a booth? And miss the chance to sell their game at GCON months before the Kickstarter backers get it??? CMON would never pass up such yearly tradition.

Make up things they don't do and pretend you're clever. Seek that attention!

Backers are already receiving the others.

I have never been to Gen Con before, but I was thinking about going to try to find this game to purchase it. I wouldn't be able to make it to Gen Con until Saturday. Do these games usually run out of stock quickly at Gen Con? is it worth trying to go on Saturday to buy it, or will all copies likely be gone by then?

If they have a set number per day you may be able to go early on Saturday and make a bee-line to their booth when the hall opens. This is typically how they do these things (have a set number per day and not set everything out at the beginning of the con)...

I haven't received notification - can't wait.

And I couldn't care less if they sell it at GenCon before I get mine.

Got the chance to play this at Dice Tower Con against Eric Lang, amazing game great simply gameplay mechanics, loved every second of it even though Pride got us in the end. Really glad I backed this can't wait to get it with all the extra goodies. Do not pass up the chance to grab this game early.

I'm a backer and I'm pro selling it at GenCon before I get it. It's not my game and I have no right to it. There is no pledgers privaledge other than huge discount on goods. This what backers should be thinking

Edit: Also exclusives. If you think about it no one is getting the game a backer gets due to the exclusives.

No kidding.

Anyone buying The Others at GenCon will pay $100 (what we paid) for just the core box. No stretch goals, not the other 5 Sins, just the core box.

Definitely worth having it arrive a week or 3 after GenCon and getting all the extra goodies!

It was pretty phenomenal getting basically the entire system for the basic pledge.

That artbooks seems like a very worthwhile investment, it's right up there with Scythe artbook for me

Yes, thanks for the reminder on how good it is . I didn't get the Artbook because I thought the background stories for the heroes would be in the game somewhere. So yeah hoping for other ways to get it. At least it isn't kickstarter exclusive.

Looking forward to getting my shipping notification, too! This Kickstarter should be well worth the wait.

And I hope they sell a thousand copies at Gencon, as that will mean the game is popular, and we may get more expansions. Also means more people to play the game with.

CMoN outdid themselves with this one.

Make up things they don't do and pretend you're clever. Seek that attention!

Except that is a thing they do.
Granted, in the case of The Others it may only be true for around a third to half of the backers, and who cares about Europeans anyway, right?
Not so in the case of Masmorra, which they are happily selling three months before Kickstarter backers are estimated to receive it.

Hey for the low low price of $55 per day minimum, plane tickets, and accomodations you too could go to GenCon! Think of all the time you'll save! Seriously, if folks can afford to go to GenCon and pick up the game (without the KSE's)do it up! Being jealous of them is straight up ridiculous, regardless of where in the world you live.

The real issue is not people being able to buy the game now at GenCon. The issue is that you don't have your copy yet and are lashing out because of it, like a kid a Christmas time that has to eat his breakfast before he gets his presents. Its going to be ok, you will get your copy, and your KSE's. Try to relax, and play a different game till this one shows up.

So can anyone at Gencon verify whether the base game is the only thing for sale or they are selling the expansions and art book?

Always interesting to see so many people roll up and lash out with direct(and surprisingly lengthy) insults after someone else makes an indirect comment that's clearly set with sarcasm, smiley face and all. Oh the irony of it. The real issue is perhaps communicating your disagreements without a string of assumptions about someone
