This list is based on the Gen Con Geeklist provided by W Eric Martin. Within it, I will be filtering out from his list of all prototypes/demos/etc and listing only the games that are for sale at the Con, and more specifically, only those that are released at the Con. The general idea is for this list to only include games where Gen Con is your first chance at buying the game at retail (though it is US-centric - I will include European titles available for the first time in the US). I will include items that publishers indicate are "likely" to be available and update as information is available. In addition, I will add any releases I find from other sources.

This list will not be re-ordered! Newly uncovered debuts will be added to the end of the list. Items that fail to make release will just be noted as such. This way you can easily keep track of where you left off.

This list will be updated as frequently as I am able - likely daily if there are updates to be made.

In order to keep the two lists in sync and information up to date, information here will be sparse and I will link back to the item within Eric's Mega-geeklist for booth/publisher/price information.

Please leave a comment if I have missed anything.

Not a new release

Edit: I'm not sure why they say it is limited to 300 copies/day as if you couldn't buy it on Amazon right now if you wanted to.

I'm going to add this, but it has had some limited sales at UKGE and at Origins. However, it is still hard to come by and will only have 200 copies at the con.

This is very close to making the shipment date to kickstarter backers. If it does, it will be for sale at the con with a retail release in late August.

From Horrible games:
Quote:

- the CMoN edition edition is just the US version of the same game we released elsewhere in the world, not an "upgraded edition"
- there will only be one single Potion Explosion edition in the US, just like in the rest of the world

You were not the only one reporting about these wrong informations. The two above strange rumors started to spread because of a bit of incorrect information shared at the end of the Dice Tower video recorded at the Origins Game Fair. This has been causing quite a lot of confusion, and we replied to all the posts containing wrong informations just to make all things clear.

That said, to further clear your doubts, we don't think this is a "re-release", this is just a debut of the game in the USA. The game has been released around the world in several languages already, and we had a very small English print run that went sold out during the Essen fair, last October, but it was only sold for two days in Germany, and never "officially" reached the USA until now. If some copies reached the US, it is because some US customers bought it there. Then, the game never stopped being available worldwide, it just took a while for the CMoN US English edition to come out. We've been steadily releasing the game in several other countries throughout the last year.

So, US debut it seems.
