    they are each is limited to a specific number. While I may add more kits in as a whole if demand is high each faction would increase by the same amount.

    I was not aware until now that Square only sold to US customers. I will look around for alternatives either for selling overall or to non-US players and let you know once something has been set up. Thank you for asking about this! :)

    A: Oh, cool. Good idea that I didn't think of!

    B:No problem, there's still a month (minus shipping time). I'll keep my eyes on this thread.

    C: Thanks all-around for doing this

    Yes indeed. :) Sorry for the confusion, I was trying to switch over late to avoid that. Switched to a shopify account that will accept international orders. For orders outside the US you will need to pick up your kits from me before the show or during a meetup. The new store should now be live, let me know if you encounter any issues.

    On the topic of meetups, there will be at least one in the morning and one in the afternoon on the first three days at least, with only one on Monday morning. I'll have more info on meetups soon.

    Order is in!! Thanks for getting things organized so quick. I should be landing in Seattle on Thursday at around 4 pm and I need to go pick up my badge at will-call. I should get this badge while I'm out, where can you be found?

    This is my 3rd year Participating at Prime!

    Can you confirm that there will be no 2nd life kits and everyone can keep hunting once killed? I assume that if you are killed you keep the same target, or get a new one?

    Awesome, welcome back! Yep, no more Second Lives, you play for the length of the convention. Being assassinated does not affect your target, you keep it until you complete your mission or you reset the the mission (available a certain amount of time after the mission is assigned).

    Just ordered and happy to be back playing this for the 3rd time! I like the idea that you aren't out if you die - that caused a lot of anxiety for some of my friends last year. But because that changed, I think they are playing again this year.

    I miss our original factions, but it looks like you're working with Ubisoftt and that's pretty cool.

    Don't worry, the old factions will be back when Assassins Ball returns.

    All current kit orders are now in the mail as of this morning. Expect them in the 4-5 days. Let me know when you start receiving them! :D Also, Assassins's Creed announced the game on their side yesterday. Really awesome to see it being promoted on something high profile like that. :)

    Unfortunately I was not able to have that faction available until the new game was announced.

    This sounds awesome! Do you happen to have a total number of badges purchased so far? I think it would be really fun, but I don't want to not find anyone :(

    Do you have stats from previous years? Like who got the most kills?

    Thanks! I do have the number of kits sold so far but I'm not going to release the exact numbers. Instead I'll say that I will be receiving a second order of materials for 144 kits tomorrow, however and that the Black Flag faction would be sold out if that didn't happen.

    I can understand your worry about wanting to find people. Don't let that dissuade you from playing if you think the game will be fun. This game has been redesigned to make it easier than ever before for players to find and assassinate people. I'm talking with Ubisoft people who will be at PAX (and will be playing) now about having meetups for players to make it easier to get some kills in. These will be in addition to the scheduled meetups everyday I'll be running which will also be great places to find (and kill) players.

    I don't have a lot of stats from the East game, it's something I'm adding in on for this game so I can catch patterns and tweak future games. There's always been at least 100 players for the last several years and high scores have usual broken two or three thousand points.

    Let me know if you have any more questions!

    Awesome! I am working on getting the site ready for synchronizing badges and will update when that's ready. The about page has been updated to offer a general overview of the game with a little more detail than was available before and a new rules page is being built out to offer all the finer details you'll need for playing.

    If you haven't already, let any friends heading to PAX know about the game. Thanks so much guys!

    There's tracking on orders of more than 3-4 kits. I'm sure it's on it's way, 3-4 days is just the average, but if it doesn't get there by the end of the week let me know. Also if you bought your kit early on through the square store you most likely got the fulfillment notification before it actually shipped.

    Great! Working on getting things ready so you can register your kits online, should be up Monday or Tuesday. In the meantime you can check out the updated rules online: http://phenixone.com/rules.

    If you've not ordered yet shipping for kits will be closed after Tuesday. You'll still be able to order but will need to pick up your kits prior to the show or at a meetup; the schedule for those should be announced soon. :)
