Looks like the pre-release events led to a big increase in demand. I don't know if it will as bad as dice masters but I already know that a lot of local stores where I live grossly underestimated demand leading up to the early release events.

I could be possible, but what I really want to know is HOW this shop owner spent "Hundreds" ($200??, $800?? $1500??) of his money on advertising...I checked its social media platforms and It does not show any signals of heavy or medium marketing intensity. I know there are other ways, but I don't see any rational shop owner spending time or tons of money on a game that is still not out.

Like I said, It might be true since the launch parties across the US were more than successful and created a higher demand of the product, but beware of people's rants, They usually come with exaggerations; which in time they develop into bad rumors.

If he printed flyers and made some banners for his store, he can be in hundreds.

Why would anyone do that especially for a game that advertises itself and they should know that FFG isn't great with the distribution?

This kind of marketing usually comes from the publisher, who is in the highest interest of "spreading the word around" about their new product.
It does not mean a store could not lean on their own non-digital advertising to increase their event attendance, but if he is not using his benefit as shop owner and not pushing the product thru the publisher/distributor, then he is doing bad business and needs a advertising adviser.
(Not not mention that today's advertising is almost FREE if you know how to use your social platforms)

First time posting a pic, so hope I did it right. A friend sent this to me, and I told him it was probably fake news. Last night, Miniature Market had 20+ preorders for both starters and booster boxes. However, today, they are sold out of all of them. This is starting to be the case after looking at other OLGSs. This is starting to look like the Dicemasters release disaster. Hopefully, this will not be the case. Does anyone have any info on this?


This person was crying in the FB group and yes, there is a high demand now that many people realize the game will be amazing. All orders I was told before Nov 1st they have more than enough stock to fill. The rest will have to wait. FFG was not going to print more than they need and people were determined to fight the CCG method they took. Many of those people are now coming around to it and thus demand is higher. It will be stocked and if you ordered through MM or CSI before Nov 1st you will or should for sure get it, after that, you should, but possibly a little later.

Or he could be not telling the whole story. Have you ever been to a local store? Most of them don't spend that kind of money on their own advertising, let alone for an unreleased game.
