I was one of the unfortunate many who missed the boat on the first run of this game, and am chomping at the bit to get a copy (without paying the exorbitant eBay or Amazon prices).

Could someone from Pretzel please advise us poor wretched souls when the next print run will ship? Are we looking at weeks, months, or longer?

My FLGS has multiple copies of this still on the shelf. Is it really that hard to find? Interesting...

Do they ship? I'll buy one from them.

I can't find it anywhere. All the online game stores are out; and, there aren't any game stores in Memphis to speak of. There's only hobby and comic book stores.

Help a fellow game geek out pleeeeease!!

They are always really good about ordering plenty of copies of games they heard will be HOT. I've rarely heard them complain about having to wait for a 2nd shipment of something... usually the biggest issue is with Game Companies putting new games on allocation because they didn't produce enough and so that game store can't get their full INITIAL order received.

I think they ship, but on something new like this that apparently is out everywhere I wouldn't blame them if they choose to sell games to routine / return customers rather than package and ship it to somewhere where stores didn't place a big enough initial order. I dunno... I wouldn't blame any store for doing that really.

If you can't find it anywhere, call Mox Boarding House (Or Card Kingdom) in Seattle, WA. They have tons of copies when I was in yesterday (at 20% off, too.... sidewalk sale).

Just called - they have one copy but won't ship.

Thanks for the lead anyway.

It would be nice to hear from Pretzel games though if their warehouse is empty or can stores still get them in.

My FLGS is looking to get one for me but I;m wondering if I see one somewhere else if I should grab it.

Hate to let my FLGS down - but they still sell me lots - like the large X-Wing ship expected this week... :-)

Flick'em Up sales have overpassed our expectations ! It sold out in few days! Few weeks ago, when the buzz on the game started we didn't wait and decided to go ahead with a 2nd and a 3rd print. The 2nd one will arrive in USA in October!

Can we expect to see copies from this second print in Essen as well?

Sure! We will have copies to sell and the same kind of set up that we had at GenCon to demo the game

Congratulations on the success of Flick Em Up!

I was able to try the game and am excited to be able to get a copy of my own for my family to play.

Will the second and third print runs be the same as the original run (e.g. same wooden and thick board pieces) or have changes been made?
