They make gamers cry too. Especially when they made the account just to plug themselves. Guarantees zero sales to me for life.

I don't really have a problem with this. Its not like they we're trying to hide who they were. What if they we're selling it for half price? Wouldn't everyone on this thread have been excited then? Even at full price I'm sure some people we're glad to see the post. I'm not sure why I'm defending semi-shady advertizing tactics. I must be in a contrarian mood this morning.

I feel if they want to advertise on BGG they should contract to do so as the other retailers do.

Just picked up my pre-order of King of Tokyo at CSI and their website shows them in stock. Hooray!

EDIT: Word of warning, I just opened my copy and it DID NOT have the engraved dice. Not a huge deal for me, but considering I waited for the second edition because it was said to have the engraved dice, it's a little disappointing.

I also found it odd that the instruction manual was shrink-wrapped to the back of the box and not actually inside the box.

I'll probably contact IELLO and see what the deal is...

I was going to throw my FLGS some money by ordering this through them, but when I asked about it the guy working there looked at me like I was crazy and said he'd never heard of it.

Checked CSI today, they had it in stock, so now they get my money. WTG, FLGS.

It's always been that way, so that's normal. I'll be pissed if mine doesn't have engraved dice, though. Thanks for the heads up.

Did Iello confirm that the second print was supposed to come with engraved dice, or was this just wishful rumors on the part of posters here?
In another thread, Where is the engraved dice set?

they did state that the new edition had engraved dice:

The new edition has engraved dice.
I'll be a bit concerned if that is not the case...

Thanks, I will do that. I didn't see any contact information on iellogames.com and I don't have a Facebook account so the only way I can see to contact them is by sending geekmail to their BGG account, IelloGames. Hopefully I get a response.

I generally agree with you. If I hadn't ordered yet and started hearing about the game not having the engraved dice, I would do the same as you. However I already placed my pre-order with CSI and it's been processed.

At this stage I would have to request a replacement if it shows up with non-engraved dice, same as Jonathan. Let's see what happens...

This happened to me with 7 Wonders - got the first edition when the second was just in stock. CSI keeps some to sell at higher prices when out of stock and if they don't sell they ship them out with the reprints. At least thats what I'm assuming happens.

The latest print run of King of Tokyo DOES contain engraved dice.

The way to tell if you have the last edition is to check the reference near the bar code on the back of the rules.

It should read:
Ref. 51032 /4
The "4" is for 4th edition. This is how we keep track of our print runs.

If you get anything lower than 4 then you were sold a previous edition with non engraved dice.

And since I know what your next question will be...

... The engraved dice kit is delayed and should be available later this year. I hope for September but it's not a firm date so don't quote me on this.

Wally from Boards and Bits contacted me today about my request for an update on KoT and he directed me to the Iello facebook page. I've since responded letting him know I have been tracking it on BGG and other retailers have it. I've asked for any additional information he could provide so we'll see what he has to say. This game is holding up my LoTR: The card game, a boatload of expansions AND my 3rd edition Dominant Species so it better HURRY UP! arrrh
