I just checked on Knight Works Games website that we could order the game. Could it be possible to preorder to pick it up at Essen? Will the add-on proposed on the website be also available at Essen?
Thanks for the reply to the location of your booth
Unfortunately, I have no way to have orders from our Knight Works site be available at Essen. BraveNewWorld.biz and SpiralGalaxyGames.co.uk will have booths at Essen and be selling both Hands in the Sea and Forged in Steel, but those are their store copies.
There is still a few 100 copies of the Companion Guide left for both games. But, there are only 20 or so copies remaining of the mini-expansion for Hands in the Sea. I am guessing that will be out of stock within a week.
