I've never ordered with BDUK before, but recently placed an order for the Pathfinder Card Game.

It was on preorder and, according to the BDUK site, due in October 2nd (today). I have heard various horror stories that it's hit-and-miss if you ever actually get your pre-order, so I just took a look on the site to see the status of the game. It's now showing as "currently unavailable".

This could be that all the preorders are taken, but I just wanted to hear from anyone who has ordered with these guys before. Do you receive a shipping email normally? Or is this a sign of the horror stories I've heard of previously?

Thanks

I have ordered from BD before and it is pretty much the same set up as Amazon.

I think you are correct that the 'currently unavailable' is an indication that they are not taking any more pre orders at the moment and are waiting on stock to arrive.

Just be thankful you have not pre ordered a Z-Man game as they are completely hopeless at the moment about shipping stock to customers (under producing games, failing to reprint etc).

I would not give up hope on your Pathfinder game yet.

Hi James...

I preordered the Pathfinder Card Game from the Book Depository and it was eventually showing as currently unavailable too.

I got it 4-5 days later than other people in my gaming group that also ordered from BD.

Basically they didn't order enough like a lot of retailers and since they were £10 cheaper than anywhere else I assume they took A LOT of orders.

I don't think you need to worry though. Hope you enjoy it when it comes!

I also ordered Pathfinder from them, on 24th August. It came on 18th September. I didn't contact them to ask about it, but their automated emails kept me informed. I was prepared to wait for the extra discount and wasn't disappointed.
