How is it this game is still not readily available in the UK?
It's readily available on the US website but we are still scratching around for copies on web stores rather than walking into a FLGS and taking one off the shelf next to Forbidden Island. Is their distribution network really that bad?
Esdevium dominates distribution here; The few other distributors don't have the same heft, for various reasons. I don't know what determines if Esdevium is willing to support the distribution of a game, or what the story is with this game, but it makes a big difference.
