got an e-mail today from AEG:

Quote:
Thunderstone Player,

Are you ready to Level Up?

In case you have not heard Thunderstone Advance is nearly here and to get a head start we are offering retailers the opportunity to host a LEVEL UP Pre-Release.

Game stores around the world are hosting pre-release LEVEL UP events from March 2 through March 8.

Participating LEVEL UP retailers will receive Thunderstone Advance for sale before anyone else, and receive a special Avatar mini-expansion. Avatars will be FREE to customers who purchase the game during LEVEL UP Week. After that, they will be on sale for $9.99 (MSRP). So, check with your local retailer to see if they are participating, and if they are not, encourage them to do so by putting their order in now with their distributor.

Contact customerservice@alderac.com for more information or if you have questions.

You might have already seen some of the great reviews we’re getting around the Web for Thunderstone Advance. Tom Vasel of Dice Tower reviews said, “I can’t say enough good things about it.” The official release is scheduled for Monday, March 12, but you can get your copy early!


Looks like a good promo for the game, as well as an incentive to buy the game at your FLGS.

Be sure to tell your FLGS about it, just in case they missed hearing about it.

If you could find any retailers in your country taking part.... hint hint..

Edit to the post (Waves at AEG) that appeared before mine I don't have a 'local' store so I'm really not fussy where I go.

If I were to hazard a guess, Magic the Gathering is where they profit. Everything else is secondary. Every night they seem to have some kind of MtG thing going on.

For those of us who live in a community with a single FLGS who doesn't support AEG, is there a way to still get in on this promotion?

It's a program expressly geared to brick-and-mortar stores. That alone hold help convince them to support us.

Anything we do to circumvent that destroys the purpose of the program.

See if either store will take a preorder from you; they should get the Avatar pack as well.

That is unfortunate then, it looks like I will be unable to get the promo.

They pretty much only stock M:TG and Wizards of the Coast stuff. I have asked them in the past about Legend of the 5 Rings with no luck.

Preorders talk. At least to store owners who listen...

My FLGS confirmed with me yesterday that he did indeed listen to my request and get in on the LEVEL UP event. I can't wait! Any details on the "events" portion of of the promotion? I would love to do more than just walk in and pick it up...

Giving fast and friendly service in shop and by post for over 25 years

We'll be getting the game and demo in at the end of this week and at our next games session our local Thunderstone enthusiast can run through it with us, which will be very handy as no-one yet seems quite sure what it does. To Michael (Grumsh) I'd say: have a last-minute further word with your local game shop. It used to be pointless trying to stock L5R as it was so cheap on-line, AEG are now trying to make stocking their products possible again so let's give this initiative some support.
