I placed an order for this game at my local FLGS sometime in early November I think. No sign of it being in stock at the supplier.

Should I give up? This was supposed to be an Xmas gift for a birder friend but it seems that if you missed the kickstarter, you've missed the boat.

The game should be available! It's definitely available online at the Nothing Sacred Shop (though admittedly with high international shipping, unfortunately), but it should be available through distribution as well. I'm sorry Christmas is past, but I'll check in with my distribution guy and make sure it's available in Canada!

Sounds like one of our distributor partners in Canada may not have stock. If you tell us who the retailer is, we can follow up with them to figure out the disconnect.

That's Nathan I believe. They have contacted us in the past saying the same thing about other clients. They use Lion Rampant, and in the end, its about WFS pushing Lion to put items on back order if Lion does not have them in stock.

In this case, I can actually see that Lion chose not to order...that's quite odd. I will check with Lion, but again, if a retailer pushes their distributor enough, the distributor will order since we ship a lot to Lion already its just easy for them to add even "1" of a game.

Best,
Aldo

Hi, yes, Nathan is one of the owners of WFS. I'll send him your reply and see if he can add some pressure to get the game.

I am also a fellow Canadian and i found it on Amazon .com (the american version). I was able to order it and is currently on the way to my house right now. Yes you have to pay a little extra due to shipping costs but i believe the total was 17 dollars! not a bad deal. I could not find it anywhere elsesoblue

Thanks for the heads up. I sure am jumping through hoops just to buy a gift for a co-worker birder friend! Anyway, 17.95 + 7.95 USD with conversion comes to 36.95 CAD. Too rich for my blood unfortunately.

I'll see if it's available next year at Christmas time.

Always know for any game they can be special ordered. I know it can take awhile sometimes, but so many of these retailers and distributors are not bringing in games like they used to because there are tons of them out there. So, if you don't see it on your favorite online retailer, they can categorically get the game, its just if they'll go through the hoops for you.

Best,
Aldo

That's the trouble I'm having! The store I have ordered from, can't place an order with the distributor because they haven't ordered it! He's asked them to, but no go. Very frustrating. I've technically had the game on order since November.

So, that is odd because the two big distributors in Canada - Lion Rampant and Universal - have both ordered it...it has to be available to your retailer unless they're only ordering from Everest...

Best,
Aldo

Ok, I'll ask again.

Interesting name, Lion Rampant. That's the same name of a miniatures game I recently started playing.
