Asmodee have very kindly agreed to provide Fragor with 300 copies of the Leap of Death tile for those who bought our original edition in 2008. The tile is compatible with this edition. The artwork is broadly similar and the track size is the same. We did not want those who bought our original edition to miss out on this freebie so we are delighted to be able to make some available free as a thanks to those who bought our version

We are going to give away 250 of these from our booth in Essen. These will be available for collection - 1 per person - from Thursday at 10 am onwards at our stand. It is too much work to have a pre-order system for them so they will be given away on a first come first serve basis. You will need your BIG PAWS token from the original game to get the free tile.

Our stand is at hall 9-19 (the same as last year) where we will be selling our 2009 release Savannah Tails. We have taken 250 pre-orders in just over a week..... (cue for a sly plug - you can pre-order at http://www.fragorgames.com/preorder.html ). shake If you pre-ordered Snow Tails for posting and order our new 2009 game Savannah Tails we will include the Leap of Death tile with Savannah Tails when it is sent out.

We are going to send 50 tiles over to the US but we have not quite worked out the details. Again, US pre-orders are very important to us and we want to make sure that some tiles make their way across the pond. Details to follow once we have worked something out.

A big thanks to everyone for their support and kind words regarding Snow Tails. We have had a wonderful 12 months. It is time for us to try and do it again ! cool

Cheers,

Gordon and Fraser (“The Lamont Brothers”)

Good idea, but I'd be concerned that profiteers will be snatching these up, as opposed to loyal customers that actually own the game.

Any thoughts about making folks show proof of ownership? Make 'em show you the Big Paws, or a card, or even a sled meeple.

I just sent an e-mail to pre-order Savannah Tails. Perhaps a Leap of Death tile could be included with that, as I'm not going to Essen...

Right now I am feeling very: turbed, pirited, heveled, combobulated, and not tinguished, so don't you dare "dis" me!

I purchased an original copy of Snow Tails.
I can provide proof of purchase.
Is there any chance that I can get a free copy of "Leap of Death"?
If not directly, would you consider some sort of give away contest here on BoardGameGeek?

Contest A , Fragor will give away X copies to X random BGGers who demonstrate proof of purchase of the original game.

Contest B - Fragor will give away Y copies to Y random BGGers.

Entering contest A will exclude a user from entering B and vice versa, or something like that.

Thanks!

Yeah, I am with Jim. I also bought the original Snow Tails, and I would be very, very pleased if I can get the Leap of Death tile free, bundled together with a copy of Savannah Tails if I decide to make a preorder.

Please?

Ok, some good ideas here. We will do the following :-

1) Anyone pre-ordering Savannah Tails from us for posting who also pre-ordered Snow Tails for posting will get a free Leap of Death tile posted along with Savannah Tails.

2) We will make it a requirement at Essen that a Big Paws token is produced.

We are doing our best to make sure that everyone who wants one gets one.

Cheers,

Gordon

I knew getting my FLGS manager to pick me up a copy at Essen would bite me in the bum one day. And I have preordered Savannah Tails.

Well Gordon, I would love one - any chance of getting one with Savannah Tails and making an ex-pat Scot happy? (We need a sad, puppy dog emoticon!!)

Try this one. It's not an emoticon, and it's not a puppy, but it might work...

Thanks very much for taking care of your original customers! I'm very much looking forward to hearing about any Fragor edition tiles that make it to North America. It would be great to get such a tile.

Yes it would, but a Fragor edition tile is a non-existent thing. As indicated in the first post...Asmodee is giving Fragor a supply of Asmodee Leap of Death tiles to be given to owners of the Fragor edition of the game.

That's a good point... the track is the same size, isn't it?

Quoting Gordon (first post):

The tile is compatible with this edition. The artwork is broadly similar and the track size is the same.

And here is a photo of the Leap of Death between two Fragor Snow Tails tiles:


So yes, the tile is very compatible with the Fragor Edition.

Edit: Replaced personal gallery image w/ one now accepted as part of the Leap of Death Gallery

Any details? Or was this idea not able to pan out? Thanks!
