Well I just asked Coolstuff if they will be getting this game and they informed me that it is a Target exclusive. Well, since I normally only buy from Coolstuff this one is off the list.

I received an e-mail from Thinkfun saying that the game would be released in mid-September. Maybe what Coolstuff meant was that its Target exclusive right now? Even if not, Targets are everywhere...

What a ridiculous attitude. "I really want this game but I only ever buy from one shop, so no game for me!"

You may be politically against sich a concept in which case it seems quite reasonable not to buy it.

I have not heard that this is target exclusive, but if it is the case I never learned what it means for Europe?

Its going to be available in Europe, I myself have ordered it from Meeples Corner. I think its just exclusive to Target for an initial period.

I have bought mine from Amazon, I know Amazon don't have the best rep, but I bought it anyway.

Why doesn't Amazon have a good rep? I never had a problem ordering from them?

In terms of them paying their tax bill.

lol, what? They didn't pay because state laws, as structured at the time, didn't require them to pay. State legislatures that felt compelled to, changed that or Amazon built a physical location on the state which required them to collect sales tax. Even today, not all states require Amazon to collect sales tax.

In any case, this does look to be a Target exclusive. Thinkfun's website directs you to Target to purchase the game.

And as I've pointed out I've preordered it from my FLGS here in the uk...

While I do prefer to shop with Coolstuff because of their great prices, I actually order from many places to include local game stores - Target just isn't one of them. I am pleased it will be made more broadly available however. Your tone and response is offensive. I would suggest learning to converse in a way that isn't so hostile.

Great thanks for the suggestion, I'll take that on board (no pun intended). Having a preference for ordering from somewhere for a reason is fine, I have two preferred online game stores because of prices and customer service. However not buying a game that is exclusive to somewhere because you don't shop there is just silly. But as has been stated it is going to be available elsewhere so all of this is moot anyway.
