Got an e-mail from Decision Games this afternoon to confirm my payment/shipping info.
Quote:
We are finishing the printing of the game components for D-Day at Tarawa. We will be processing payments in early July and finalizing the shipping list.

Great to read!

Yes, I was going to pre-order too but the shipping was 48 dollars. I couldn't justify spending 93 dollars on the game with the shipping costing more than the pre-order price.

Ok then.

I think I have a problem. I pre-ordered both this and Atlantic Wall and did not receive anything else than an order confirmation.
Also S&H was not estimate in my order...

which worries me since AW alone is going to weigh some Kilos...

cry

Guess it is time to contact DG sales support...

But the website still says "shipping late June," not July.

I sent an inquiry to Decision Games yesterday. Today I received the following response:

Quote:
This game is still in production and we are still awaiting parts to arrive. It will not be shipping for a while.

That's nice and vague!

Do you know if that means that pre-orders are expected to ship by then, or are you only saying that there may be copies at those events?

Thanks.

Preorder customers normally get them weeks earlier than the stores, at least that's how the other DG games were. So still chance we could see it before month is out.

Folks,

Got this from DG Customer Service the other day:

"ETA for Tarawa pledge orders is the week of the 21st of July. After all pledge orders are shipped, we will proceed with the pre-orders."

So, it IS happening.

What is the difference between a pledge order and a pre-order?

My very own understanding is that it has more to do with chronology than anything else, i.e. Pledge orders where put in as soon as the game was up on DG website and for some time after (think P500 for a second and trying to get to 500 to go into final production), then when the game went into production you could still buy it at a discounted (i.e. pre-order) price. Finally, a few days before the components start to come in and ever after, you can only buy it at the full retail price.
So the main difference is that a pledge was a true leap of faith that someone took when it was still not clear when the game would come out (maybe years in advance), whereas the pre-orders normally went in when a ballpark ETA was known (mostly a few weeks/months in advance).

Apparently then, this chronological order is respected also when it comes to shipping, i.e. Pledge orders go first, then pre-orders, then full retail.

Obviously all of this works if you are a US customer. International orders will also be subject to the will of each country's post office and some countries may receive pre-orders before other countries get pledges in...

HTH
