Just want to take the opportunity to publicly thank Ares for their consumer-friendly decision to allow pre-orders for the first 48 hours rather than a set amount of copies which inevitably leads to a feeding frenzy.

I came extremely close to purchasing this game a few months ago on a visit to the US, but ultimately did not. So here's my chance to get this awesome version of a great game. As it happens, I'm currently travelling in the EU, and given my work schedule, there's no way I would have snagged a copy.

So hats off to Ares. I know there are those who will say it's a profit-friendly decision, but we've all seen examples of companies going the other route.

agreed. Lets hope they see the positive feedback that this is generating and that they follow this model for any further special/painted editions (possibly the next two expansions and the final triple whammy expansion.)

I must also complement the way they listen to users here at BGG. You do not see that from every gaming company.

Let's also give them credit for actually knowing the true market demand for this thing.

And maybe we BBG'ers should note the error of our over-reaction and maybe stop thinking we know how to run their business better than they do.

Just saying, the sky never came close to falling.
