Any clue how much this would be to pre-order and get shipped to the UK?

No idea. Best thing to do is to either add it to the cart and go part way through checkout or PayPal to get the total amount with shipping and then cancel out.

Yeah, should of thought of that, turns out to be £50, think I'll wait for it to appear in the UK.

It would be nice if they had an ETA

I'm not fond of GameSalute's marketing model, so I don't buy there games. Too bad. This one looks pretty good.

Also, there were problems with Nothing Personal - one problem was on the gameboard and requires a sticker to fix (pasted over the erroneous text). The first sticker produced by GS was too small and doesn't cover the offending text. Also, there was a misprint on a card.

That puts me firmly in the "wait and see" and "perhaps I'll pick it up in trade or used" camp.

I definitely know what you mean. As much as it pains me, this and SOS Titanic are too good not to get even if I have to get them from GS.

Given the number of games that are being released and the rapid-fire adoption, improvement and propagation of anything novel in a new design, no game is "too good not to get" any more.

Well, I don't know what you mean. What is it about their marketing model that troubles you so much?

It's pretty obvious, Game Salute's Model hurts discount retailers and the customer. Discount retailers are cut out completely and therefore the games are priced at a premium - hurting the customer.

If GS's games were premium games or if they offered premium service (for example replacing the flawed game boards, misprinted card and rulebook that came with "Nothing Personal") perhaps paying a premium price would make sense. However, there are so many really good, high-quality games out there that are fairly priced, there is no reason to do business with Game Salute and pay too much for not much. Nothing Personal!

That's my only question because I know that I will be buying this game. Price doesn't matter to me.

Are you willingly to raise your prices?

Will the Game Salute preorders ship this year as part of the first print run, or will they be part of the Kickstarter?

That answer seems to depend on who you ask since I've heard it both ways so far...
