PH store says it's now out of stock. Not even for preorder. I'm waiting few months for this. This is my money here. Why you don't want it?

I know virtually noone who has the game and played it. I'm beginning to suspect that all the forum posts are just random bots.

Seriously.

Did you preorder it? The game has come and gone in about 5 waves now. Actually ordering it will be the only way that money turns into a game.


Also, Did you read what the page said? It's in the exact same orderable status that it was, only with wording to try and answers questions that continuously get asked.

Ordered in December, received it in December. This bot and his bot friends have enjoyed it immensely.

My FLGS got it couple of weeks ago, maybe you should check when your own countries shops get it and not the US publisher site, maybe it's on it's way already.

It was just funny exaggeration, my merry bots. Preorder is almost out of question for EU folks, I touched that subject some time ago in other thread. Paying $60 for shipment is a tad on the wacky side.

Let me rephrase this - will this game ever become available in EU? It would seem that most of the wave hits the US and it's not available in EU shops. You can tell, by looking at the marketplace here on BGG - almost exclusively US. And the prices aren't high out of the thin air. It's just stupidly hard to get this game, it seems.

Fair point. But it's dead of winter here, literally (plethora of snow when looking through window) and I feel that I'm missing on the experience :)

It's probably a publisher war between PHG and Portal, because Colby really wanted a copy of Tajemnicze Domostwo and can't find a copy.

Or maybe none of that is true.

Yeah, sure I did. While we're at it, PH store doesn't have the most friendly interface in the world. Status of "will be available in 1-2 months" or "2-5 months" tells little, especially if it's there for 3 months. Why couldn't it say - "expected by mid of January 2015"?

So the status says that it's not there, but I can order it, freeze the money and wait for indisclosed amount of time. Sadly, this is not how the world turns these days.

The only statuses that should be there are "available" and "not available, expected by ...". The other ones just introduce confusion and (in my case) frustration. That, and months of not working paging on the site (1,2,3,4 and so on), even though I reported it like year ago.

If that's the case, I can mail him few boxes this instant :). The game is a major disappointment, though, and I love Dixit, Fabula, Gloom, Winter Tales and storytelling in general.

The page doesn't say 1-2 months anymore, it says as of Dec. 19th copies are backordered, and orders from Dec. 19th on will get filled when shipments arrive, by the oldest first. However, we just shipped a few more out so that's more like 28th of Dec.

It doesn't say "By this time" because that doesn't give flexibility. That information used to be readily available, but non specific target dates started to become set in stone when they weren't set in stone, it's very hard to have things in this industry set in stone so far out to a specific date. This just gives it's place in the process and the typical times those steps take.

But for a game 30,000 backdated, getting in line has been a lot of people's way of making sure they get one, and they've received it because of them doing so. That's not to say waiting for it is bad, it isn't and it's completely fine, shipping understandable and everything, but for that it just takes longer.

We're not random. We were made with a purpose.

End of line.

What do you mean by "freeze the money"? Most places don't charge until items are shipped. Is that not the case at PH?

Really? Anytime I pre-order a game at Miniature Market or CSI (Netrunner/X Wing/Descent FFG stuff typically) it's always charged before shipping.

You have to take a chance. I 'pre-ordered' in late December. Game is in the mail. I think I was one of those last few.

Esdivium has very recently restocked up. You should see it showing up in stores in the UK soon.
