I looked through the dice tower segments and couldn't find them.

Did they not go?

I seem to recall seeing a summary here on BGG in one of the ST:A related threads that late Q1 or Q2 2017 is estimated. So, no news.

Didn't see any news from them from GAMA, but there was talk about the upcoming Borg expansion from a previous show. That's the latest news that I've seen.

Asked them for an update on 3/15/17, they said "no we are not being told they have been completed yet, we are flying a manager to get to the bottom of what is going on."

That sounds really bad, like they have no idea what's going on.

Yeah, that doesn't sound good. I hear this issue all the time. If I ever win the lottery I'm going to start a stateside game manufacturering company.

I had exactly the same thought! And use more durable materials. The odds of this happening have just doubled.

But can you pay your US employees Chinese wages?

No. I would also not have to ship things across the planet with non comfirmable delivery dates.

Nothing on Star Trek Ascendancy or the release of the expansions. Sorry, although everyone here agrees that it is Long Overdue.

It isn't necessarily the wages, but the mandatory coverage and regulation compliance that often add up to make US the most expensive place to manufacture in the world. Many manufacturing laborers only get paid minimum wage, it is everything else that comes with it that makes US manufacturing more than the $5-$15 an hour for 40 hours a week that becomes so expensive.

That's why most us manufacturers are turning to automation. I'm not saying it would be the cheapest option. But, I think quality and dependability are worth far more then people think.

A lit if factory workers get minimum wage in the US, but then again, even that is 4x or more what the Chinese workers get. Figure thats per employee too.
