This game looks interesting to me, but I will not be buying it for this reason. I may trade for it later or buy it second hand,
Wait, so, someone could buy it new, open it, put all the stickers on, then turn around and sell it to you? That's the equivalent of paying a third party to sticker the dice on your game. You could literally hire one of the day laborers that hang out in front of Home Depot. Alternately, you could go the Tom Sawyer route; before your first game tell your opponents that stickering their share of the dice is part of the game. Whoever does the best job gets to be first player.
