Couldn't make it to Gen Con this year so I can't first hand report. In years past, big launches have fallen short on supply so I'm curious if anybody there this year knows if it sold out or if they are meeting demand.

(And if you're at Gen Con and answering this...fer crying out loud...GO BACK TO THE CON!!!!)

According to Jamey, the limit is the number of copies there is room for in the booth.

Doesn't really matter, it's out in retail now. I just got my copy today from Miniature Market.

+1

People don't need to go to GenCon to get it

Scythe is being sold out of the Cephalofair Games booth, and our supply will likely last until Saturday afternoon. In terms of predicting the demand under the unprecedented situation of a hot big box game releasing a month after 18,000 fans already received their copies, I think we did pretty well! (For reference, we brought 1,000 copies.)

Gloomhaven is going to be so awesome Isaac. I'm jealous that a buddy of mine is going to demo it at GenCon, but I'll get to play it for real in a few months when my copy arrives

I was curious how it was going over at Gen Con, and the rate of sales would be a good indicator of that.

Glad to hear it's moving well. Hope everyone enjoys the Con.

Actually asked Jamie in the elevator tonight if Scythe had sold out yet, and he said they still had about 200 copies left. Methinks those will be gone tomorrow.
