Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knows if there are other shipments of Capt Sonar coming in. Or do we just have to wait for the reprint. Yesterday, I checked at CSI and there were 20+. Today, it's sold out at all major online sellers. Ugh.

Thanks!

Not yet sold out... in the US, virtually sold out in France and most of Europe.

It's a testament to how great this game is - well done! Hopefully those without copies will receive one soon.

While this game looks incredible, I would warn everyone that this is what happens to every new board game that has a new sexy idea. Board Game Hobbyists are ravaging hoarders and constantly on the look out for the new "NEW". I'm a victim of it, you're a victim of it and we're all craving the newest thing and being able to share it with our friends and family.

This game can't get any more hype, so while we're all hungry for it, in 2 months it'll be available everywhere just like Codenames.

Thanks for the all the replies.

Yes, I do agree about the cult of the new. I stopped buying games for two years because of this. Most games feel samey to me and I have some version of it on my bookshelf.

However, this game fills a specific niche which is that it plays 8 players and isn't a coop. Hence, why I am angry at myself for not buying it yesterday when it was in my cart. I am such a dumbkopf sometimes.

Hello Gamers,


Seriously US Inventory is not sold out as far as I know... must be temporary so I think in a few days you'll have plenty of opportunities to get the game.

I am so genuinely happy that the game gets so much love. We loved it right from the start, but never thought it would do very well. That is such a nice surprise!

A reprint is underway for the rest of the world, because there is a genuine shortage outside the US.


Have fun playing,
Arnaud.

I looked yesterday as well, and was disappointed to see that Asmodee has a new policy where they are limiting their online distribution of their games. That was a bummer and caused me to lose interest in Captain Sonar! I have not researched who can carry their games, but I mainly buy from Amazon, so I doubt I will be getting CS any time soon!

It's a rare occasion but I literally have 7 people wanting to come join me for games at my place, so I looked for this game like my life depended on it.

All the online stores were out of stock, so I tried brick and mortar stores that did not have an online ordering presence. It worked but barely.

Most stores were still out of stock while the last store I tried had one left. I told my boss I'm taking my lunch break and went straight to the game store (it was 10am).

Phew that was a close one, without this game I am stuck to all the usual party games =S.

TLDR: I was lucky to snag one last Tuesday in Sydney, Australia =).

Wow...Yesterday evening I was buying several gifts on CSI for friends and needed about $40 to get to the free shipping threshold. I figured I would treat myself to a game as well, but I couldn't find anything I wanted. I happened to stumble upon the SDSU review and immediately added the game to my cart. I cannot believe how lucky I got! Usually I see a game I want and I am a month late to the party...

Its now sold out everywhere in Europe, only a few weeks after GenCon. Anyone know if there will be a restock this year?

Seems like a very conservative distribution that potentially has left money on the table...

I suspect they didn't predict that SU&SD would give it such a glowing review.

Luckily I pre-ordered mine a while back as I'm a big Space Cadets fan.

Actually we never expected such good reviews, appreciation and acclaim from the community...

Have fun playing,

Cardhaus has had a copy appear every now and again on their listing. Just set up an email alert and refresh every now and then, you might get lucky. I did earlier this week, and my copy is arriving today.

I walked into Cool Stuff Maitland on Saturday and traded form heroclix for this game. Worth it, and the benefit of having CS as your brick and mortar FLGS

Btw - I think this game deserves the hype and I'm glad to see it doing so well! I needed a rush copy in time for tonight and cardhaus came to the recuse for me. But for those who don't know - a great site to quickly check stock and prices: http://www.boardgameprices.com/prices/captainsonar
