I love all these bag ideas - they're getting filed away for next year, but feel free to do stuff before Origins!!
Anyway, the reason I'm speaking up at this point is because a question was asked that I can answer:
>>Speaking of coasters... I was wondering if the color combinations for
the martian coasters were finalized or not. I was just thinking
re-arranging the xeno-rainbow matchups would be more pleasing to the
eye (Yellow-orange, Red-purple, green-white, and blue-cyan)... That or
have all the colors contrasting (yellow-purple, etc)
I am looking at an actual copy of the game right here. The color combinations are not only finalized - they are already printed and getting packaged and then shipped to distributors and stores around the country.
The colors are exactly as you see them on this page: http://wunderland.com/WhatsOld/2006/WN.09.07.06.html
Combinations: Red/white, blue/cyan, green/orange and yellow/purple.
We are working REALLY hard to get these coasters out to you ASAP! There's some basic stuff that has to happen first (sorting them - they come shipped as a box of red coasters, a box of blue.... you get the idea) and we have to get them into packs of 1 of each. Then bagged up with the rules sheet... and we've just gotten this process started.
Stores that get our "Crazy Good Coaster Special" (either direct from us or from their distributor) will be getting the coasters before anyone else. Point your favorite retailer to this page to let them know about it.
Other than that, Fluxx Espanol and Martian Coasters should both be shipping out to our distributors by the end of next week (around Nov. 3rd) so your favorite game shop can order them then. In plenty of time for holiday gifting!
ps - I think I stole your name-color Evan - mine's golden on Gmail....
