If you're the person who sent a tidy spreadsheet and you were missing most things in groups of six, I pulled those on Monday and left them with Emily.

 

Yep, that was me.  Awesome, thank you both for pulling those and for responding here!   :)   I had pre-ordered those before the FB was ever released, and that weird website glitch caused my order to fall thru the cracks.  I had been working with Keith and then when he sadly passed I thought I would never see my purchase be completed.

I ordered a set from the website, thanks for the heads up...I was pretty sore when I saw what these were selling for after the fact...

 

I also never received the set I ordered back in what, 2014, 2015?

 

I did receive the signed Flashback though so I just sat back, watched everyone make fun of Eric, and kept quiet, lol.

Email them! They're really trying to straighten out all the old order issues.

I ordered 3 sets back when they first came out, arrived on time but all 3 sets were missing Soccer overlays.
Any chance of getting these?

Definitely. Shoot Emily an email though too, if you would. She'll probably compile a list and have me pull everything at once when I'm there Monday. And she'll be able to keep track of what goes out that way. I'll text her today and ask her to keep an eye out. :)

I mis-read by moving the 'o' so that it became "just ordered too hard"

Received mine today. My review:

Some small differences between the first set and this new set. Not that big of deal at all though.

Top corners are not rounded. Have a slight cut off corner. Ever so slightly.

Bottom corners have a distinct starting point of the round part of corner.

Some appear to be of a different die lot, some overlays are a lighter or darker shade.

The plastic bag of original has a serrated edge on left and right side. The new plastic bag has smooth edges.

The overlays appear to be made of exact material.

My first set I opened I got extras. Here is what:
4 chess
3 shark shark
3 space battle

Set 2:
4 chess

Set 3:
4 chess
3 math fun

Set 4:
4 chess
3 baseball
3 learning fun 1

Verdict:

Virtually the same overlays. Fast delivery and great quality. Recommended!

Maybe someone thought chess left is a different game than chess right.

When I originally ordered these years ago, I wasn't shorted any and I think I actually received a few 'bonus' overlays. Haven't checked this set yet, but I received them today. I'll report details on Sunday.

That is a lot of words to imply a new "variant" that needs to be collected :)

Now the original set will always be in high demand

I never did sell mine.  I guess I missed my chance.  Ah well, I can say I have a original set. :)

Depends on how many new sets are produced. Probably less than the original run. My guess is that they sell out fairly soon and prices eventually creep back up to $50-75 ($1-1.50/pair), which still isn't a terrible price considering they're brand new and officially licensed by Intellivision Productions. Grab them while you can.
