Hi guys,
Pre-order now on GW website is at $124 for Blood Bowl & Death Zone Season One bundle, will it be cheap at retail like CSI, MM? Should I wait?

I wasn't aware that any GW product has ever been available on CSI or MM.

"Games Workshop has a strict policy against selling their product on-line through a shopping cart." - from an online retailer I know.

Oh, didn't know GW doesn't allow that. So now or later it's the same price then,
Thank you guys.

You can get it at 20% cheaper through your local store if they carry GW stuff. Of course, you have to pay sales tax too then.


You do get an exclusive bonus card for pre-order from GW though. Whether that card is a $25.00 value....

This isn't necessarily true.

Check out chaosmailorder.com, ministomp.com, and even frontlinegaming.com... There's no cart system but you can e-mail your order. Some of those places offer up to 30% discount on MSRP during pre-order/the first week or two of release.

None of the store preorders come with the bonus card do they?


It is webstore only?

I pre-ordered just the boxed game, no Death Zone combo, in the U.S. from an eBay store for $85, which includes shipping.

I pre-ordered at my FLGS to take advantage of the 20% off pre-order special and got three buttons and cards. Pretty nifty.

This is dependent on the retail store. If the store orders 40+ copies they get all the promos too otherwise they do not. My FLGS that ordered 40+ copies doesn't offer the GW preferred store discount of 20% so I purchased from the FLGS that does (plus I like the smaller sore better and that helps me decide too).

When I pre ordered from the GW store, I got all the buttons, stickers,etc. and a nice Gouge-Eye flag to waive at games.

Unfortunately many of the items are already sold out on the GW Canada store so FLGS it was. Don't think I get any of the free loot though which is a shame.
