At the moment, we do not have a distribution agreement for the game in the USA, and we might be able to have some limited distribution in Germany and perhaps the UK.
We do not like exclusives, but the reality of the growing board game industry is that hundreds (or more) of new games come out every year, and only a fraction of those makes it into wide distribution. Even then, a game that does not have the marketing support of a huge publisher might not be on the shelves for very long.
This is especially true for indie game studios such as ourselves. If you are coming to SPIEL in Essen (or buy from a retailer that picks them up there), you may be able to get a copy, but otherwise the campaign may be the only way to get one otherwise.
