Is www.houseofnine.com the only place to get this game? And does anyone have any idea how many copies were printed. I see that more people want it than own it and I'd love to see enough ratings on this game to get it ranked.

I don't have an answer to your question, but I agree with your desire. This game ought to sell well. It needs some good PR and a wider distribution. A greater exposure would also help ensure official add ons.

Right now, in order to use the official Wyrd expansions, I have to go to the bother of getting Time Meister to use his power to go into the future and pick up an expansion and then come back before we can play, and that is a pain because he's not always cooperative.

A truck driver friend of mine has mentioned seeing the game in several shops across the U.S., and I know someone else who picked up a copy at Shocklines.

It's apparently in some brick & mortar stores, but I don't know where. Online, I don't know of anywhere else you can order it.

I think it's safe to assume that more people own the game than the BGG list indicates. Even though I've been a member of the site since 2005, I didn't start listing the games that I own until fairly recently, and I still haven't listed them all.

As for online availability, I've seen the game at Shocklines too, as well as at one or two other online stores.

The store that I prefer to buy games from couldn't find a way to order it and told me to buy it online. Playing it at a different store got some interest for a comic-book fan employee.

That's surprising - to say the least.

It was $40 plus shipping from houseofnine, but it's $60 at Target according to the link gordon just posted.

Wow! On behalf of the two people in my group who've been wanting copies of their own, thanks for passing this along.

Any guesses on how many copies of this game exist? 100? 1000? 5000?
