Is this game coming out at my local FLGS or do I have to order via online from GMT?

Great game design makes the complex simple, replayability maximum, and abstraction credible.

It’s not how well you roll that counts but how well the dice suit the game.

My FLGS is awaiting deliveries. It also stocked Beda Fomm for over a year so I expect The Hunters to be a great retail seller for it too.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.

John,

I have a local FLGS here in Michigan that carries GMT games. I have also seen a gaming store in Knoxville Tennessee that carries GMT games. So I would think if you have a store near you that has GMT product they would be able to get the Hunter. I would ask them to look into picking it up. With the internet, local stores around here don't carry as big of a range of product as they did in the past due to have trouble knowing what will sell in store vs the web. BUT they are very willing to order ANYTHING they can for their costumers! I will always check if my local stores can get it, then look to in country mail order, before going to the internet for an item.

I bet your FLGS would be able to acquire a copy for you as I have seen talk about the game shipping to pre-orders first then to the retailers.

Good luck and Happy Hunting!

Hi Jim,

Just curious, which FLGS in Michigan carries GMT games?

Thanks,

Todd

Yes, part of the beauty/luxury of having GMT Games handle distribution is that the game should land in everyone's FLGS that carries their line of games.

Todd,

I stopped by GoB today, on the way home from work, and they do have GMT games in stock. Ryan the owner said he carries the new titles thought he only makes orders when he has to restock. So, it may be a bit before he would have The Hunter in. Guild of Blades is located on John R just south of 12 mile. The store is on the East side less that a 1/4 down.

There web page is; http://www.guildofblades.com/gobstore-madisonheights-mi.php

Hope this helps!

I will. I was a tad confused when I first discovered this game. At first it looked liked a print and play game, especially with all the downloads and game reviews (previews). Then I heard about the P500 orders and thought it was a direct order like Kickstater.

Nice to hear it will be available in at my FLGS.

What is the suggested retail price?

No problem! Great price! I just posted in the www.subsim.com forums about this great game! Calling my FLGS now to reserve my copy.

Hi Jim,

The natural follow-up question, of course, is which store in Knoxville you're thinking of. Finding a FLGS here would be a life-changing experience.

Thanks!

I'll have to contact my sister-in-law as I have no clue where the mall is. That was a few years back and not too far from their home. Give me a few days...

My FLGS doesn't actively stock GMT games, but I can special order them there and have them in a week. I still get my in store 30% discount and I don't have to pay shipping.

That's a real nice deal, Michael. We are spoiled here in North Dallas area with a huge storefront that stocks wargames, among a kazillion other things.
