Hi all,

If you are struggling to find this game, I would suggest emailing the game shops you purchased from, as Rio Grande do have them in the warehouse, they just aren't being picked up by the game shops. i'd suggest this as a good course of action for also getting this game noticed since it's a great game, that sadly has got a bit missed.

If enough people pick it up, then Rio Grande might consider supporting the next expansion as well.

:-)

Also Cool Stuff INC has it in stock for $22.99. They have been good about restocking it as well.

For UK customers it looks like it's back in stock at GamesQuest as well - £23.99.

Ordered my copy from them a week or two ago. It was sold out shortly after, so they seem to be doing a good job with restocking this.

I do want to reiterate Rich's point. When I asked my local game store (Event Horizon Games in Raleigh) to order it for me, they ordered a copy for themselves as well. So now it's on the shelves alongside the other deck builders they carry.

This is a good thing! Especially if you want the expansion brought to market.

Starlit Citadel said they had it in stock, but they had not . Not available very well in Canada. Rio Grande? Fix it!

Yes I did, they said it would take 2-3 month. Now RGG really has messed up something here . If you can't satisfy demand on a product currently having a spike in demand, demand my fall back to where it was and you wasted that opportunity. I really really hope they simply have logistics issues and don't have to wait for a re-print to be ready.

Hmm that's strange, when I emailed them, (Rio Grande), they said they had loads just sitting there waiting to be ordered? Is it worth checking with a few different companies in case this is just citadels ordering procedure?

Great suggestion about requesting that your FLGS order a copy for you.

If you don't have a FLGS nearby, timewellspentgames.com also has copies of Arctic Scavengers in stock for $22.50.

And with the increased attention recently on Arctic Scavengers, the game stores selling via Amazon.com have been vying to scoop up customers by offering the lowest price. When I added Arctic Scavengers to my Amazon.com wishlist about a week ago, the best price was $38.76. But this morning I noticed that a different game store was selling Arctic Scavengers via Amazon for $28.53. An hour later, the company that had been selling it for $38.76 decided they'd now sell it for $28.43.
