I have just heard from my distributor and Imperial Assault is NOT licensed to be sold in Australia!!! WTF!!

So if you were looking forward to buying it from your local store, guess again. I have heard of at least one store here importing direct from the US, not sure how many others will do the same.

I guess we have the same problem here as New Zealand had.

Really glad I decided to import from CSI now, though!

Milsims has it for sale. My guess is that Games Empire will too if there are any copies left over. They rely on imports too.

Yep, I couldn't be bothered waiting to see how all this silliness shakes out and opted for CSI too. Hopefully by the time the expansions are out we'll have a better picture of what's happening.

.... wtf.... I've been waiting for this game for forever.

I was checking earlier today, best I could get it for from the UK was A$190. From CSI it's around the same.

I cancelled my order at Milsims just last week when it became clear it wasn't coming for Christmas.

I use Milsims a lot, but they often have massive delays getting popular, new games that require imports. They only just got Tragedy Looper in, for example. Who knows when they'll get stock for SW:IA?


I guess I'm lucky that I ordered SW:IA when they still offered ~US$30 shipping. My version is costing me ~US$102, which was ~AU$121 including bank conversion fees back when I ordered it. I won't get my hands on it until the new year as I'm going away, but it should be ready and waiting when I return...

I do feel horrible for the other Aussie fans, though...

Book Depository often has good prices for FFG games, gets stock earlier than Australia and you don't have to pay anything extra for delivery - I got Talisman the Woodland there for $AUD25 for example recently.

They don't have a price up for IA yet but they have the first wave of expansions for preorder marked at c.$10-$20.

WHAT!? Damn it, tell me it's not true.

Why do we Aussies ALWAYS seem to be the exception when it comes to getting stuff the rest of the world takes for granted?

Ok,we live on the other side of the universe, but there is a large gaming market here, and we shouldn't be left out in the cold.

Might have to email my FLGS re my pre-order to see what's going on. I'm sure they will say "That's the first we've heard about it".

Not happy.

WTF!?!?

I preordered mine at Games Paradise who are affiliated with Ventura FFG distributor. I'll see if I can get a comment from them.

I emailed Milsims on Sunday after reading that Canada and UK should be selling copies from 17 Dec.
I asked if Aus had the same release date or if they had an idea.

The response was "Will be here 1st week of Jan".

Actually, this is happen in my country also.

...and it is the first time I ever heard this kind of intellectual property distribution problem from FFG.

That's not too bad really. Here it costs 100€ = 124USD and Europe doesn't have licensing problems, just FFG shipping cost problems!

Yeah, that's why I jumped on that price while I had the chance. It would cost me US$140.69 if I was to pre-order it today.

In NZ, the issue appeared to be with Disney, so perhaps nothing. We're likely never going to find out the real reason.

Yer they (Games Paradise) have had the pre-order available for a few months and even advertised it for pre-order a few months back. Milsims also has it listed.

Not sure what the story is.

Book Depository is great, but good luck getting a copy, as they sell out quick there and don't take pre-orders or if they do not very far in advance. You can get them to email you when it becomes available though. (Free shipping to Australia as well).

All in all, the internet helps solve these issues, it's just BS for of FLG stores.

Would be a little cheaper but that quote is USD not AUD. So after all is said and done will be close to 140 USD
