I'm interested in this game, but just saw it in the Ground Floor Kickstarter. I'm a little confused though. Maybe someone can help me with my quick questions in time to decide if I'm going to pledge:

1. Are these dice printed or etched?
2. Will the game be sold separately, or only as a bonus with Ground Floor?
3. What will the cost of Skyline by itself be?
4. How soon will it be available?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Skyline will also be sold separately for approx. $30. It includes 60 custom dice.
It definitely won't be available in retail before October 2012.
This is what I know, maybe other people can tell you more.

1. The dice will be molded plastic. I think we are looking at acrylic dice since the process allows us to do something really cool with them (but that is not 100% hammered out yet).

2 & 3. The game will be sold separately in the future for at lest $30 MSRP.

4. For Kickstarters it will ship at the same time as Ground Floor. For non-kickstarers, it will probably ship into distribution one month after that. But I need to verify any and all promises I made concerning when Skyline would ship into distribution to make sure I do what I said that I would do. (I don't have the time to check it right now with so much going on)

There will be 60 dice. Either 14mm or 16mm. That decision has not been 100% finalized, but just requires me to make a final decision.
