Me and my partner would love to play this game, she's a huge LOTR nerd, but I can't seem to find the Core Set in stock anywhere here in the UK. I've had a look at FFG's 'Upcoming' page on their site and the core set doesn't appear at all in their schedule.
Does anyone know where I could buy this, or when it will be in stock again?

wouldn't you be better to try and hunt down a second hand copy?? its cheaper and at some point you will want more than 1 copy

Those aren't hard to find

I saw one copy on the last week in their Manchester store and available in the online store as well.

I actually checked there yesterday and they only had the expansions, someone must have snagged it, I didn't realise they had an online store too. Fortunately a very helpful UK BGG member has contacted me with a copy they wanted to get rid of so I'm sorted now.
If anyone else in the UK needs a copy it does indeed look like Travelling Man online has some in stock, the first online store I've seen with it in stock at all!

Is obtaining games hard in UK? I was visiting my parents in Scarborough and there seemed plenty of stock in York and in Scarborough.

The reason they still have it in stock at Travelling Man is because it's £30 + tax(£6) + shipping(£5) = £41 give or take a pennny or two; whereas before it went out of stock Chaos Cards were selling it for £25 with free shipping and the other major online retailers were similar. As for local shops, it's all very well them having stock but that only helps the people who are local if they don't have a good web presence.

I would rather have a complete 2nd hand copy in reasonable condition (not even bothered about the box) than pay over the odds for a new one.

Edit: There is now a discount of £4.20 being applied at checkout so now works out at £37 ish

I am surprised about the extra tax on it. I bought a set of Elder Sing in their Manchester shop and paid only £27.99 same ay the price in the online shop. Why do they have "extra" tax on the online shopping?

I've picked up a complete, barely played copy from ebay before.

Cost me 12 quid plus 7 postage so £19 in the end .. they regularly come up.

Its worth emailing Gameslore and asking if they can get any from their distributors as they can be very helpful that way. Got me some Warhammer Invasion packs that werent in stock and werent down as reprinting either.
