Those seems to be out of stock in Valley Games' site, does anyone knows if a new print is coming soon? Or definitely OOP? I sent them an email since last week but no response up to now.

My FLGS (SpielTraum in Osnabrueck, Germany) might still have some. I bought a set there for 7€ last year.
And in February they still had one last copy of C&C: Ancients Expansion #1 after I bought the second to last
Their online shop is only in German language and not fully functional at the moment, so maybe it is better to contact them via email. This is needed for a quote on shipping costs to other countries anyway.

Edit: On the other hand, the Valley Games page for these dice says "Availability: Usually Ships in 3 to 5 Business Days". Does not really look like out of stock.

It says in stock on that page but if you click on "add to cart" button, the next page appears a message saying that item is out of stock. If you do this for C&C Napoleonics dice you will have no problem sending those to your cart and you can place the order, but not for the C&CA dice.

May I ask why you need them? Are you just wanting them to enhance your game or do you need replacements for the game? Just wondering... maybe we can come up with other options for you.

Indeed, especially given newer editions and expansions no longer come with the original crap hollow plastic dice that inspired the Valley Games dice.

Thanks for the interest Chuck. Just enhance the game, I don't like the feel of the original dice compared to the rest of the components (I own the mounted board for example). For 7 usd I think is worth it. Also if I get both dice sets (C&CA and C&CN), I got combined shipping

I, too, have shared in all the above. Want the dice to enhance the game, have ordered them and discovered them OOS, and sent an email that has never been answered. I post this hoping VG will read this thread and act on it.

2012 edition dice are too lightweight, they hardly roll. Maybe before they were worse, but I think they are still the lowest-quality component of the game.

I'd seal them up when they arrive, otherwise they may chip and wear.

(This may not be a concern like it was when Valley's dice first came out but to be on the safe side...)

(I was about to search for it in the forums.) How can I "seal" them? With any wood varnish or are there other/better options (that I can find worldwide)?

Glad to see you got them ordered. I bought 4 sets myself when they first came out. I have also made my own dice with some Chessex blank dice and laser printed stickers I made. I made a whole sheet of the stickers so if a face wears out I just replace it. The Valley Games dice are my favorites though.

Has someone received his dice from Valley Games?
My order says shipped since first days of April, but I'm still waiting.
I've tried to contact Valley Games by mail and by web-form. No response.

I got mine last week. I ordered right when they restocked, and live much closer in California, so I suspect yours are in transit still.

I'll need patience then.
There is no shipping order number and there are no Valley Games mail responses.

That's odd. If you created an account (you ALWAYS should), you can login and find your orders. Mine is still there, and it was Ordered April 3rd and I got it about a week or so ago.

FWIW, I ordered mine on the 15th and they've yet to arrive. Sounds like that's not unusual. GMT has spoiled me.

Sure I've created an account. That's why I'm saying my order has "shipped" status.
What is missing (aside my order) is a shipping order number (from USPS or wathever mail-service).

Yeap. To Chile lindo.
I suppose they must arrive soon.
What disturbes me is not have a single response from the seller.

Being optimistic again... how do you seal them?
