Probably when they have sold 3,000 copies.

3000 and done. So if you want it, do it soon. Otherwise it's 51st State all over again.

Out of curiosity, what happened with 51st State?

I just pre-ordered and my order number is 19xx so they have roughly one third of the copies left one week into the pre-order campaign. Other way of tracking is to see when the stretch/gift goals unlock but they don't update that in real time so just be aware of that if there's a sudden rush of orders towards the end and they shut it down before the latest goals are updated.

iirc with the 51st state preorder there was a big uptake in preorders after some media coverage (Zee Garcia did a review video). I'm not sure that this is going to happen this time.

I guess they have some final date. As with every preorder campaign, with the moment when boxes are shipped to retailers.

They estimated a time when pre-orders would end, and said they would let everyone know with plenty of time. Then Dice Tower did a review of the game, and everyone jumped on it and the initial print run sold out in a couple of days. Ignacy apologized, he had no way of knowing it was going to sell out, but the pre-order was no longer available without notice.

LOTS of salt on the forums, mostly from people who knew about the pre-order for a while but were sitting on it to see if some of the later stuff would unlock (since Portal said they would give plenty of notice of when it would end). 1st half of this sold out in 4 days. I'd grab a copy now. That was just the people who were subscribed and know about it. I'm sure at some point Dice Tower or Rahdo are going to get a copy and then the rest of the world will know about it and the second half will be snapped up.

Thanks to all answering the question of 51st state!

Thankfully I'm not worried with FM as I preordered the day after the campaign launched. I was more worried about how most of the OLGS pre-orders are sold out, and knowing that it's taken forever for something like Terraforming Mars to come back in stock I took the plunge on the Portal preorder.

I've been thinking about ordering from Coolstuff, but wasn't sure if they would come through, also didn't know if there copies come with the upgrades Ignacy talked about in the video on the portal website. Is it worth the extra $30 to order from the Portal Website. I have been waiting for this game, and don't want to miss it.

The CSI pre-order is for the standard retail version.

There are two things that we know will be exclusive to the Portal pre-order:
- Washed minis.
- Transparent markers.

Everything else might be available for everyone in the future, at an additional cost in many cases, but there are no guarantees of that.

The only way to be sure you will get every unlocked item listed on the Portal pre-order page is to pre-order through Portal.
