Having co-developed a solo variant for IS, I would love to see an official set of solo rules included in the reprint.

Oh and please keep the theme and artwork, they are crucial to the games appeal IMO. (Who needs more dragons?!)

We will definitely have dice without stickers. We will make extra dice available for people who have the first edition of the game.

Can you make a 4-player expansion for the first edition that includes:
1) New dice
2) Pieces, cards, and boards for a 3rd and 4th player (e.g. in blue and green)
3) additional 1-point coins.

We wouldn't add the metal coins to the second print run (but instead have much better dice). You can still find coins in our online store, though.

You've been sold out for months.

That explains why we're not selling very many. I just added some to the store inventory.

Thanks for that chuckle.. I needed that today!

Anyway, is this going to be strictly a reprint (as opposed to a new edition), without any changes to the rules or components (other than upgraded dice)?

I ask because if it's a new edition, then is there any plan for an upgrade kit for existing owners? Or if it's simply a reprint (with upgraded dice), then offering the new dice as a separate purchase would be all that you could do.

Thx!

We're not that far yet in our thinking. The upgraded dice will at least be available, though.

OK, thanks... staying tuned!

Island Siege was one of my very first Kickstarter pledges, and is still one of the best games in my collection. (I've already worn out one set of dice, and the latest set is almost worn... even with a spray of clear coat)!

I could put a 3D file for embossed Island Siege dice out on Thingiverse. I am going to do the same thing for a special Rice Dice die, too.

Go to Noble Knight Games. Ι just ordered and received mine! I'm talking about the whole game, not just coins.

I'll say this, if the theme were to be changed, I would LOVE to see a cowboy/western theme with this, BUT NOT TRAINS . Possibly even a horror theme i.e. Sleepy Hollow BUT NOT ZOMBIES
