Did the Race for the Galaxy dice game make it to the Gathering of Friends again this year? Any news on when or if it is going to be published?

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

It did make it to the Gathering. It has not yet been published, and I didn't hear of any firm date for publication, but it seems like it's in pretty good shape to me. I believe I have now played the game 11 times at the past three Gatherings.

This sounds like a terrible idea. Hopefully it's better than it sounds.

It doesn't sound like a bad idea to me, but of course people differ.

It works very well, but if you think that all dice games are watered-down versions of the originals, this doesn't fit that pattern. I think it has more or less the same level of decision-making as Race for the Galaxy.

In case people have subscribed to this thread hoping for more information, the game is slated to be released spring of 2013.
