How many of you are preordering or already have? With that, why are you? I guess I am just curious as I've seen so many people saying they are. Does FFG have a history with providing preorder incentives? Is it just to ensure you'll have a copy or more before it goes to reprint?

I just started preordering games (this game because it seems awesome, Blood Rage reprint because it is awesome and I want a copy, and Legendary Civil War to go with Blood Rage preorder).

Have a great day fellow gamers.

None unless you want it right away.

Really it depends on the publisher. I always preorder Zman games that I expect to be hot because they are notorious for doing small print runs. Fantasy Flight, on the other hand, never seem to have shortages.

I preordered largely due to excitement. I'm just so so excited for this that I wanted to buy it the first chance I got. And if in the off chance it ends up as a limited item I'll be glad I did.

I preordered 2 copies. As was mentioned, I am also pretty excited for this game after watching Team Covenant's video and just want to make sure I can get it as soon as possible without having to worry about it selling out and waiting a few months for it to be restocked.

Some games are sold out fast. This might be one of them.

Last year, FFG had trouble to meet demand for both A Game of Thrones: The Card Game (Second Edition) and Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game, even though they did larger-than-usual print-runs for both of them. Many had to wait months for the first reprint.

So, preordering might help ensure, that you get your copy in time!

Bye

There are no preorder promos. The point is to help make sure you get your copy as soon as possible and to help ensure that it doesn't go out of stock before you get your copy.

Yep. That's all it is for me.

Thanee just nailed it. I (and many others) really do not want to wait for a reprint.

I'm planning on picking up 2 copies but haven't preordered yet. I need to pick out some other stuff first to get to the free shipping level.

Perhaps I grabbed the last pre-order from MM?

Darn you!!! cry

I'm sure more will be available for preorder. Kinda hoping to order from Amazon once that shows up. Cheaper shipping internationally I think.

I added it onto my At the Gates of Loyang pre-order in an attempt to create the most unlikely of bedfellows in a single shipment...

Holy smokes.

Glad I got my preorder in. Though I only did 2 copies. They must have demand.

Also glad I got my preorder in yesterday. Was originally going to wait until after my credit card closed for the new billing cycle closer to the end of the month, but feared it would sell out by then.

I preordered 2 core sets from Cardhaus yesterday (had to email them to get them to put it on their site). They still have 45 left. Get them before they sell out!
