This was my big disappointment of the con. We got in Thurs a little earlier than expected, but 11am was still way too late for this. They got more in on Sat, but looking at the stack of copies and the length of the line that had already formed, I gave it a pass. Will definitely be picking this up when it releases!

I was able to get my copies on that Saturday morning line. Granted, I had heard from them the day before it was going to be there, and there was a HUGE rush to get them, but only took me 20 minutes to go through the line. It was insane tho.

You know, when a hot new release like this comes out at teh GenCon, how freaking hard would it be to limit it to one copy per badge?

You know, so that more than a handful of people can buy it?

And to cut down on the eBaying?

There's much less eBaying than I would imagine; as of the time of this post there are only eight entries.

Looks like there's still about the same number on Ebay..

That lot of six available from one seller must be maddening to anyone unable to get one at Gencon.

I think it's amusing how the market quickly fell out for this game on eBay. The first sets went for $80+ and now there are several available with buy it now lower than that and not a single bid or offer.

My fav part was that FFG put no cap on purchasing this, but still had an event for the game, which most people (myself included) would have loved to have joined were they able to buy the product.

Do you mean the tournament If so, did you pre-register for it? As I understand FFG did have copies on hand for those entrants to use.

The tournament was capped, first at 32 then at 64.

50-something people showed but FFG was not permitting generic tickets to fill unclaimed slots.

Given it went 'til 2:45am, probably the right call.

I did not pre-reg. Sorry for the misinfo on my behalf. Sadly, I heard this from another disgruntled gamer and didn't question it.

FFG has promised the game will be available retail shortly.

There's only so much people are willing to pay for early access.
