That really doesn't make sense. I have never seen them sell the same game at different prices and this game has shown 'out of stock' for quite some time.

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.
The copy I just picked up from CSI says "2" so that explains why I don't have the engraved dice. I'm still confused why they would still be selling the older version as they've shown out of stock for quite some time. I wish I would have known this UPC info before opening it. I will contact CSI and see what they have to say.

I know CSI does sell some things on Amazon for a lot higher than they do at their site. Why they would still have it when everyone has been sold out for eons is beyond me.

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.
You say you picked up your copy from their actual store/warehouse? Perhaps they gave you a copy off the shelves, while those being shipped will be from the recently received 2nd edition? Just grasping at straws here... I hope I get an engraved set :/

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[/q]

Thank you for the information! Considering how long this has been available for preorder at Boards and Bits I had a feeling that there were a number of us with significant orders pending receipt of this last item. Certainly difficult to see all the other retailers receiving their shipments but not Boards and Bits....soon my precious (hopefully) shake

Boards and Bits may have been further from Iello's distributor than Cool Stuff and be a couple of days behind. I think they were a few days behind in getting Quarriors Quarmageddon as well.

Look at what CSI is selling Eclipse for right now. 89.99. When they were selling pre-orders for 65ish. This price changed almost by the hour when they got non-pre-order stock in to sell.

So this doesn't seem so far fetched.

They actually don't keep a big variety of games on their shelves and this game has definitely not been on their shelves for quite some time. Also, I watched the guy go to their warehouse (which is within walking distance). However, I just noticed that one of the corners has a slight dent. Maybe the guy grabbed it from a ding/dint section in the warehouse (which is also odd because they have a ding/dent section on their shelves). I've contacted CSI and will provide an update when I have one. I did tell them they should probably put a note on their product page if they are currently still selling the older prints so that no other customers run into the same issue.

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.

That really doesn't make sense. I have never seen them sell the same game at different prices and this game has shown 'out of stock' for quite some time.
They sold Eclipse for 50-60$ the first go round, then they started selling them at 80-90 and then finally for $160.

Then the second go round of Eclipse they sold them for 50-60 initially and now they are selling their 2nd box of Eclipse for 80-90. I look for that to go up to 160 again when they get to their 3rd box or whatever.

So they do have a practice of increasing their prices as games get harder to get. However I haven't noticed them doing it widely, I just started paying attention with the Eclipse deal.

Just a quick update. CSI, as expected, allowed me to exchange the older version for the latest reprint, no hassle. They apparently still have five of the old copies still on hand. I can now confirm that the re-print does indeed have the engraved dice!

Thanks to the thread, I made my order through CSI.

This is my first time ordering with them, sorry MM, you were two days behind on getting it in stock.

I also emailed CSI and confirmed with them that the game was the new reprint, they said, it was, so I will see on Saturday.

I also ordered the two KoT promos from BGG.

Now lets get that expansion up, I am ready to buy it core game and expansion, unseen.

Eleven left as of this posting at Miniature Market. They only just had them available as restocked as of yesterday afternoon, and it was over 30 copies. Going quick.

edit: cheapest price online as well, unless you need to factor shipping because your order wasn't over $99.

edit edit: and now it's down to three copies less than 20 minutes later.
