If you can't wait, the DLP upgrade kit comes with literally everything you'd need for the base game and 5 players in terms of the person discs. They just have a different texture, but if we need to play 5 players, there are enough components for everyone to have the matching texture bits.
TMG will have the 5th player components as an add-on available on our site during Q1 2017.
So will this new 5th player components from TMG actually include both a short (for development track) and tall (merchant for map) in black? The TMG KS version did not and DLP's 5th player components do not either.
