Default Halloween Dice?

Last year, it was said that Halloween Dice would be this year by Halloween. (Or perhaps I read an implication into a post telling us it wouldn't be out in time for last Halloween.)

I don't see it on the schedule, though the product page says "Fall 2102". Any chance that we'll be able to have this for this year's festivities?

Bummer. The product page is taunting me with Fall 2012.

I would have thought with all the dice that keep getting cranked out, this wouldn't be this much of a problem, but that is likely just my disappointment speaking. I was looking forward to playing this with candy pumpkins as counters this season. :(

I'm honestly baffled by the delays on this. It seems like design work is done. With all the dice SJGames has manufactured, I wouldn't think that would be much of an issue. I'm wondering if it somehow has been deemed unlikely to be profitable enough.

Not that that decision making process would be something that should be made public, anyway, but curiosity is what it is. :-)

If we had updates, we would post them. No news means "no news," not "we have news but we're not sharing because nyah nyah." :-)

Nope, and it's not anywhere near the top of our priority list right now.

Y'all may safely assume that, in any given year, if we haven't said anything by the end of July, Halloween Dice is not on that year's schedule. Now you don't need to ask us questions that will get the same answers every time -- win-win!

Well, not exactly win-win. We still don't have any Halloween Dice. :(

Though I will say that one of the main attractions of this is the built in excuse to use candy as counters. I'll just have to suck it up and use candy as counters for some less thematically appropriate game. :-)

It is not ready. Publishing a bad game is worse than not publishing a game at all.
