Update: MM just removed the word 'Deluxe' from the listing.

http://www.miniaturemarket.com/ttt-yok.html

There is some controversy going on now as this was on kickstarter for $60 and a speculation that it might be a mistake on the part of MM.

Order at your own risk.

Annoying, but far too common with KS campaigns it seems.

Re: [MM] Yokohama Deluxe Preorder $39
Thanks for posting, I jumped on it. I waffled on the KS but decided $65(shipped) was too much. However, $45 shipped works for me. I figured I'd be paying about $40 for the regular edition anyway.

Similar to mine:

IF exclusives THEN ignore

IF no exclusives THEN wait for retail (then re-evaluate, and maybe buy cheaper)

Lots of people making assumptions without knowing the facts:

- The whole Deluxe version is KS (and convention) exclusive.
- They've done this before with Orleans Deluxe and true to their word never sold it at retail.

Do a bit of research before assuming the worst. Most likely scenario is a simple listing error by MM calling it "Deluxe".

Re: [MM] Yokohama Deluxe Preorder $39
The Deluxe edition was pseudo-exclusive to the Kickstarter, hence the (now apparently deleted) grouching by a couple posters here. TMG's response on the Kickstarter blames MM:


Though this Kickstarter offered a retailer level to "begin a discussion by email with Aaron who will provide you with further information," so we really don't know what they paid. That retailer pledge required payment by August 16, so MM already knows exactly what they paid for -- and TMG does, too.

Re: [MM] Yokohama Deluxe Preorder $39
From TMG on the KS comment section:
Quote:
Well, the deluxe version doesn't exist yet. Neither Miniature Market nor even TMG have copies. The Deluxe version won't be available via normal distribution, which means if they have it in the future, they'd have to have gotten it via the kickstarter, and 39.00 would mean they're selling it at a loss.
It's important to remember that other vendors can put whatever they want on their websites, and often it's just placeholder information. Do not rely on such information - this includes release dates, prices, player counts and time ranges. and so forth. For instance, that Miniature Market listing has an entirely made-up SKU (TTT-YOK). I suspect that page will morph into a listing for the regular game as it gets closer to release.


Edit: too slow...ninja

Re: [MM] Yokohama Deluxe Preorder $39
I thought I was done buying games this month after my FFG/GW splurge, but looks like I have to pick this one up. I haven't heard anything but good things about MM customer service, so I assume it will be easy to get a refund if it turns out to be the standard edition.

The same $1 retailer pledge is available on Chimera Station Deluxe right now, which means if this is a true dealwhy would people back the Kickstarter and not just wait to get it from MM closer to launch at the lower price point. It only takes one time for people to learn their system and for it to start failing them

In general I agree. For Deluxe versions it's different, but maybe Yokohama Deluxe will change that as well. We'll see.

Counter to that point, if you want a copy of Orleans Deluxe edition they're selling for $100+. Not disputing your case at all, but these things are hit and miss and Kickstarter is a gamble.

My guess is $39 is going to be for the retail version.

Definitely makes you think twice about Chimera Station. I would guess that the numbers will be significantly down if this is the case.

Re: [MM] Yokohama Deluxe Preorder $39
Here is the most recent reply on the KS from TMG:

Quote:
@Everyone, We have not sold any Deluxe editions of Yokohama to Miniature Market. I know cause I've been handling all of the retailer pledges. The listing that Miniature Market has for Yokohama Deluxe is wrong and we've reached out to them to change it to "Retail Version" or something to that effect. Their listing is for the retail version. Hopefully this clears the air.

MM's customer service is solid: if you ordered thinking it was deluxe, shoot them an email.

OP should edit thread title.

Re: [MM] Yokohama Deluxe Preorder $39
There is a new reply from TMG on the KS page. It seems like the version sold by MM is the retail edition, NOT the deluxe version.

Let's wait for MM to make the changes first. It still says deluxe edition there.

So the publisher of the game has revealed that they have no deal with MM for Yokohama Deluxe, yet you still have some hope that MM can conjure up some copies of Yokohama Deluxe somehow?

Re: [MM] Yokohama Deluxe Preorder $39
I take it MM will just cancel the orders once this is all sorted out? Rather than sending out the retail version.

Dude it's about completing both sides of the story. Let's give MM a chance to set the record straight shall we?
