The more I hear about the game, the more interested I'm getting (although I would like to see some game-play, even if it's just a walk-through of a single turn), and I know my gaming group would love a Buffy game.

However, none of my regular UK sites are offering any form of pre-order and looking on the Jasco website, postage for the pre-order is 25USD more than the base game itself (65USD for a total of 105USD)!

So that pretty much puts the kibosh on ordering direct from source, so I'll have to wait until it hits the shelves. However, as the game is only having a limited run initially, does anybody know if that run is world wide or limited to the US?

I also would like to know. Love me some Buffy, but I can't pay that amount of money plus taxes.

None of the US sites I've looked at (CSI, MM, CardHaus) have it for pre-order either. Considering how little we've seen about the game I'm actually a little skeptical about that date for anyone.

It appears in preview section of the autumn issue of "Tabletop Gaming", a UK magazine, so would indicate there's plans for it to be sold in the UK...

We are going to look into it for you. Since we're just the designers it's hard for us to guarantee since we have no affiliation with publishing but we'll try and find a way for you.

Shipping is still quite expensive even in the US. I was going to preorder the game tonight, but the shipping is almost $21 to Virginia. That's a 50% increase in price. cry

Going to have to pause and think about this one. I thought $40 was a great price. $60+ not so much.

I'm really interested in this also. I hope that you find some way to distribute it in Europe, if not, it's going to be hard to grab that game. :/

Heh. I came in here thinking somebody was trying to get a copy of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Board Game. Imagine my surprise learning this is a whole new thing. Yay!

Edit: gah! linked to the wrong (crappy) one. This is what I meant: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Game

In the UK and just stumbled on this game, looks to be right up me and my Wife's street.

Would pre-order it without any reviews or run-throughs based on the theme and few comments I've seen from people who have played it if the shipping was just a bit more reasonable.

If you can get it into UK stores for a more reasonable combined game+shipping price then count me in.

Same here, I am trying to find anyone that can pre-order it in the UK. Most distributors/shops I have spoken to don't even have it listed, yet it is due out end of October!

Just add another fellow from Spain interested in getting the game ASAP! Actually, I would buy two copies, one for myself and the second one as a birthday gift for a friend which is even more Buffy-nerd than me.

Yeah, it's not out yet. They sent out updates and posted on FB that they didn't make the end of Oct., but are still hoping to have it out for the holidays.

Just posting to keep this thread alive - would love to get even a slither of info about the game getting released outside of the US.

I've been keeping an eye on Esdevium's solicits sheet & its not cropped up there.

@Lynnvader - did you get anywhere with making inquiries within the organisation?

Every time someone posts here I think it's been released in the US, but, of course, it hasn't.

For anyone in the UK looking to pick this up (and that includes me! ), this is now up for pre-order on Amazon.com, who are probably the best way for someone in the UK to get this, until it gets released in Europe (and there's no guarantee yet that it will)...

The price, including shipping and pre-paid import fees, from Amazon.com to the UK works out at $62.45 (or £50), which isn't bad considering there'll be nothing else to pay...

Hey folks,

Word is from my FLGS that Esdevium in the UK are shipping this game next week.

I'll believe it when I see it, but that's the word...

I received my copy from Board Game Hut in the UK this morning. Got 3 games in today at different player counts (first time solo to learn the rules, second with my 2 kids, and third time with 4 players). We can't wait to play again tomorrow. It's a lot of fun.

It shipped in the UK last week. It was short supplied though (I only received half of what I ordered)
