Dice Delay

Posted by Cheapass Games (Creator)

Greetings, Button Men backers!

We received some unfortunate news over regarding the Button Men dice. Due to a delay at the Koplow factory, the dice will be delayed by approximately one month. This pushes our fulfillment dates to December.

We realize this is close to the holidays. Will we fulfill by then? The honest answer is we don’t know. Once the dice arrive, they’ll need to be sorted and packaged with the rest of the components; our packager won’t be able to give us a job completion estimate until they have the dice at their facility. Final assembly and collating will also be completed at this time, so card-only orders are delayed as well.

Once we have everything in hand, we’ll be doing everything in our power to get things packed and shipped out as quickly as possible. This includes everything from advance preparation to gentle harassment of our printing and packaging partner.

In the meantime, keep an eye out for updates on the Funvelope goodies, and remember you can start playing Button Men any time by going to

Thanks again for backing Button Men!

      Aww, man! First I was hoping to have SMCDC by the con I went to in late August, which didn't happen, and now this was delayed too. Oh well, things happen I guess.

      Long as I get the thing, take as long as it takes.

      @John Bugger indeed! We'd be happy to send you some other swag to help your con. Feel free to email me at

      @Jesus We haven't collected shipping addresses yet, so worry not! We'll make sure you get your rewards when the time comes.

      (what i meant was, don't sweat it, no big deal. You guys have always come through in the past, so you've earned a hiccup here and there. Thanks for the communication!)

      Just completely unacceptable. How dare you let unforeseeable circumstances interfere with my expected delivery of what I assume to be life altering items. Good day sir.

      Can I change my shipping adress? If ther will be a delay, it will be imposible to me to receive it in my actural adress.

      Well bugger. I was hoping to run this at a convention in November. Guess I will have to use the original buttons.

      @Michael Unfortunately, yes. Our printer will complete final assembly and collating of all materials when the dice arrive, which includes the no-dice card packs. -Cassidy

      Will this delay the no-dice versions as well?
