Hello. Does anyone know what day or week the BGG Store usually updates with their new stuff every month? It's August 17th and I haven't seen an August update yet and was wondering when it usually hits.

Thanks!

The shipment of I Hate Zombies arrived from our Kickstarter project last fall, so the store staff has several thousand orders to fulfill now. It looks like we'll be delaying the next update until September to avoid killing them!

Thanks! That would make sense why they are skipping August. But is there a day or week when they "normally" do update the store each month?

I couldn't tell you offhand, but you can sign up for the BGG Store Newsletter and get an email notification when new things are added. It's very helpful.

Yeah, there's not a standard timing we do the update, so the mailing list is the best for getting notified right away. Sorry we had to skip the August update, but there will be a ton of stuff in September!

Sounds good. Thanks for letting me know. Yeah I am subscribed to the mailing list and hadn't received an email for a while. Then Werbaer updated me. I missed the message about skipping August. No trouble. Looking forward to September Geek Store items!!

It would also be nice if they'd show a "NEW PROMOS! NOW AVAILABLE!" tiny ad right below the site logo for about a week when there are new promos. For some reason they place that ad permanently even when it's not true, so it ends up being worthless.

I do change up that graphic whenever the store is updated. But yes, I need to find something else to put there once a week or so goes by!

Maybe work the month name into it somehow? Like make it three lines:

"NEW PROMOS
FOR SEPTEMBER!
NOW AVAILABLE!"

That way we could see when it's updated.

So, its September. I'm sure I'm not the only geek awaiting new promos to buy. I'm guessing the shipping went well (since I received my copy ).
Any update?
