The artwork looks adorable. I'll probably buy a copy. :oops:

I was never going to get this played, so I put my copy on the BGG.CON virtual flea market and it sold for asking price in 8 minutes. Apparently I wasn't asking enough ($40 for the record).
I mean, it regularly sells for about $100 on the 2nd hand market so you gave it away. :lol:

The pre-order store is up and running now by the way. Pre-order DinoGenics and Controlled Chaos.
As long as it eventually gets into the hands of someone that will appreciate it, I don't really care about the money. I am looking at losing around $200 on resale of Gotham City Chronicles, that one hurts a little more, but apparently not enough to change my behavior.

BTW, there was a copy of Dinogenics in the library at SHUX last weekend, and it seemed to be checked out pretty regularly. The buzz is real!

That is exciting to hear. That was literally my last unopened copy of the game from the first print run. I was a little reluctant to ship it but glad to hear it got some exposure!

No. I hate shipping stuff more than I like money.

I have never used their virtual flea market, but wouldn't you still have to ship it when you sold it on there?

No. The VFM is for people attending the convention. The sales are made ahead of time and then we all meet in a big room and have an hour to make all of the exchanges.

Yeah, that actually kind of sounds worse than taking a box with pre-printed postage to the post office...

He’s going to be at the location that day. And he usually suckers me into helping.

So all he has to do is load and unload the car.

I just have to say, seeing DinoGenics make it's way onto a number of fairly highly profile top 10 lists for the year feels amazing.

I’m just curious - is there any chance to get another game added to my order? I’ve got a friend who is going on nerd boat that had been diagnosed with cancer and I’d love to get him a copy as a get well gift. I know the pledge manager is locked, but if there is anything you can do being the scenes is really appreciate it!

If you are in the US possibly, international orders are definitely on lock-down though. Send me a private message.

Just noticed that DinoGenics was ranked #10 in The Dice Tower's Top 10 Productions of 2019:

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Daniel Webster

Since most people are stuck at home right now I thought I would remind people that I've made DinoGenics available to play on both Tabletopia and Tabletop Simulator. The TTS version if fully scripted and does all the heavy lifting for you. The TT version is good if you want to try out a couple of the single player scenarios.

And thank you for that! I played Tabletop Simulator with friends over the weekend and I really appreciated being able to play Dinogenics!
