Hello geeks! I recently picked up the second edition and absolutely love the game. With a little stalking around this website I learnt of this new expansion, does anyone know if any uk retails will be offering preorders or selling this?
If so, do we have a price?

This isn't particularly helpful to you but the Essen price is €45. Most retailers should have it late October.

It 'will start to hit the US stores on September, 29th, arriving in other regions in the following weeks': http://www.aresgames.eu/tag/warriors-of-middle-earth

Gameslore and MonkeyWithFire have it listed but no price yet.

There's no real need to preorder as all copies will come with the promo cards, though it would be wise to order early as I think it will sell well.

I expect other sites will start listing it before too long.

Hi,
I fell for the Gamesquest trick they say in stock but they wont release the product till 29th of September. very naughty this is certainly misselling on EBAY they should say its a preorder.

I'm not surprised, it hasn't officially released yet.

The BoardGameGuru site says pre-order but also says out of stock, and has since the first time I looked at it. So I'm not sure if it was available for preorder but they sold out, or if it's just some sort of placeholder until they confirm how many copies they are getting.

Did anyone actually manage to place a preorder? GamesLore and MonkeysWithFire are the same, saying preorder but out of stock.

Gamesquest just emailed to cancel my order because they are out of stock, even though I ordered days ago. Not happy.

Both Gameslore and Boardgameguru definitely had them showing for a while as available to order and then went out of stock.
As did Meeplescorner - where I ordered mine from (fingers crossed) - also now out of stock.

The game was on the Esdevium sheet last week so stock should arrive at the retailers today - at which point they may be able to reorder with Esdevium - if they still have copies.

And back in stock at Gameslore - looks like Esdevium had more stock to give them.

Yeah I just ordered a copy there.

Might not be the cheapest (they usually aren't) but I want to be sure to get a copy, the shipping is reasonable and they also stock the FFG Tarot cards. Adding 3 packs of those (to cover the expansion plus any cards I didn't manage to sleeve already) didn't put it over the Royal Mail weight limit so the shipping didn't go up.

Plus, their service is usually excellent.

This seems to be out of stock everywhere, before even being released. Is it some kind of limited edition?

No. Probably just very popular and/or the stores aren't sure what they are getting or when.

Gameslore order has dispatched, so mine is on its way.

I think there is a lot of demand for this though, as they have it listed as out of stock again.

I can see Ares doing a reprint very soon, or there will be a lot of disappointed players!

Or, hopefully this is just an initial allocation and there is more stock to be allocated from the suppliers.

I hope Ares Games do make sure they print enough copies and that they also come through on the reprint of Lords of Middle-earth.

Fingers crossed.

If they sell well, then I'm sure reprinting WoME will shoot to up their list of priorities.

Apparently my parcel arrived but nobody was home to receive it, so it's at the sorting office.

Hopefully Wifey will be able to collect it tomorrow and it will be there waiting when I finally get home tomorrow night!

Yeah same here - arrived on the 29th after being ordered on the 27th. Nobody in to collect though, so Wifey kindly collected it for me and it was waiting for me when I got home last night.

Really looking forward to trying it.

Has anyone in the UK received this from Boardgameguru yet? Still waiting for mine so guessing this has fallen into some Royal Mail black hole as I usually find games are delivered within a couple of days.
