Sounds like Milsims is out of stock (which I would assume they would be at this point).

Help is on the way though!

More copies should be coming in Q1 2016.

(wish it was Nov)



Factory is working tirelessly on this now.

Oh thats a real shame i was really looking forward to playing it by November. I even went out and ordered some 3d donut like tokens to replace the card donuts and make card buildings to hold the cards although i cant because i dont know the measurements for each of the buildings on the board.

Atleast i know now so i have a releastic timeframe so thanks for the heads up and for a fantastic game which i cant wait to play.

Please send / post pics when you get the game and get it all set up.

PS - you might be able to find a used copy.

I did see at least one copy for sale on the JVMF auction.

Can't remember which page at this point.

The bidding was still quite low last time I looked.

It appears that Milsims is no more and just taking money with no intension of getting the games for Customers.

Hi Terrak!

If that's what's happening at this point, it's very sad to hear.

I can't speak to this entirely, BUT...

I do get the sense that they are not operating anymore.

I hope the individuals involved in Milsims are ok (healthy etc). They were always so great to work with and excellent at their job (and great guys on a personal level).

They were in charge of all of our distribution for Australia and New Zealand.

With all of this in mind...

I'm VERY interested in finding a new solution and would love to hear suggestions.

Specifically, we want a company IN Australia to handle this, and not Good Games. Why not Good Games? Well, they were top of my list and came highly recomended, but I just heard back from them saying that they are at capacity right now and not able to take on any new distribution and/or fulfillment partnerships at this time.

Ssssoooooo...

Who else can you suggest?

("you" meaning Terrak, or any Australian reading this)

I dont know there are a few other retailers like mighty ape or games empire and others i cant remember but i cant speak for them. If it was available on Amazon with reasonable overseas shipping id get it there but its out of stock there too so atm i have no idea how i can get a copy. Hopefully i can get my money back from paypal.

I hope that works!

As for our desire to get games to Australia, my latest thought is...

Aetherworks

Heard of them?

I don't know too much, but what I have heard about them is nothing but good.

The Games Capital in Canberra could be worth a try, they handled the Kickstarter distribution of a number of games I've backed.
They have been really helpful the few times I've had to call them as well.

Games Empire is fantastic, about 90 minutes drive for me to their shop, have never had a problem with any orders I've had with them both in person and online.

Pixelpark are the main games distributors in New Zealand.
http://www.pixelpark.co.nz/

If you use them, you will have access to a range of shops in New Zealand.

Whilst your figuring out a local distributor is there a way of putting it on ebay or amazon? Make sure its not over inflated in price because shipping from US to Australia is always expensive.

That should happen soon(ish) when retailers get a hold of it.

There will be a Street Date for this coming up in maybe April (tbd).

Once up there, it should stay until supply dries up again, but we will try to not let that happen again (though it's hard to control).

If you want to be sure of getting a copy, the trick is to get on our KS launch list...

Ok cool. When supply reaches retailers that ship to Australia pls email me so i can get a copy. Hope you find a suitable Aussie/NZ retailer to distribute your game. Tbh i think its the last game i will be getting for a while. Nothing so far has interested me and i will start designing my own board games to play around with.

Did you sign up on the KS page?

That is a key way for me to be able to get back to you.

The other way is for me to post in this thread which I will (hopefully remember to) also do.

btw...

After your get Police Precinct, PLEASE design expansions for the game. We DO publish them (just ask Dave Kudzma)!

I thought you have my email address already but i can email you again.

Actually The game im designing is a game i feel hasnt been properly represented in boardgames and has come about after seeing what my play group likes. its a coop dungeon fighting rpg game. The main feature is that it has character, skill and attribute progression. as you would expect with a proper rpg and has a what i believe to be an interesting and 'meatier' combat mechanic which i am currently tweeking. I been looking at combat games on BBG so far and none are using the combat system i am implementing, although i will keep looking out for other combat games.i guess my influence came from playing pathfinder card game but the combat plays way different from it.

I would think about ideas for police precinct expansions but its hard to come up with ideas when i haven't played the game and got a feel for it. Actually tbh it would be hard for me to come up with ideas because i thought the gameplay of police precinct is pretty darn good to begin with. The reason why i came up with games or house rules like i did with Mysterium is i wasnt happy with rules or they didnt match my vision for that type of game (pun not intended lol). I liked pathfinder but the idea that you hold multiple weapons in your deck that acts as your life just didnt sit well with me from a gameplay or thematic standpoint. Which is what gave me the impetus to design my game. Anyway thats my rant.
