The Kickstarter is only just being fulfilled so it may be a while.

This is a limited print run of 2500 copies. The only place you will be able to purchase this game in the UK is gameslore.co.uk as there will be no retail distribution.

Where did you get the 2500 number from?

The print run number doesn't seem right. There are 3,000 Kickstarter backers alone. Can you clarify that statement and provide some corroboration?

It's possible that a few online stores may get a few copies - boardgameguru and Leisure Games have stocked VPG games in the past.

I believe VPG games don't come through the normal distribution route in the UK. They are ordered directly by the retailer. The Kickstarter model doesn't work very well for retailers, where tying up a lot of money for multiple copies of a game, for an unknown length of time, is not necessarily a good business model.

It's probable there are going to be some retail copies available from VPG, but I haven't seen a figure anywhere of exactly how many copies VPG have had printed.

2500 copies for 3000 backers ? That probably explain why no European (excluding our U.K. Friends) backers got their copies.

Just joking

(I hope)

There's a few people selling their KS copies in some UK Facebook Groups I'm in. Happy to ask around if you lemme know your budget including shipping. Most are about the same as the original KS.

Boardgameguru.co.uk are listing it but with no price info (meaning it's not yet in stock). They are a UK importer of VPG games. I'm a late pledger and have yet to receive any shipping info. So it may be weeks.

An excellent question! Not from the publisher (me).

I think that 2,500 print run sounds about right for DAWN OF THE ZEDS 3 (we really couldn't afford to print more at that time and WAY under printed that game), but NEMO'S WAR was around 5,000 (if memory serves; I don't have the exact number here). What that means is, after the KS orders have all been fulfilled, and then the Pledge Manager pre-orders, etc. -- of whatever remains unaccounted for, SOME will be available to stores.

You still need to be a little patient to allow stores a chance to get them, and I don't know how fast the Nautilus might sail across their sheleves, but if a store really wants NEMO'S WAR it should be able to get a copy or three for a while.

Thanks Alan!

Do you know if the retails copies will include the KS stretch goals (I think so) as well as the drawbags (not so sure)?

I'm sorry I didn't back the game at the time..

There were no stretch goals - if you were a backer you got the draw bags and a pin. That's it.

Thank you both for your answers!

So no drawbag in the retail edition then. No big deal.

I know I'm crazy late to this party! Does anyone know where I can get a copy in the UK or if a reprint KS is going to happen?

They have expressed interest in doing a reprint KS but for some reason they can't launch it until 2018.

I bought a copy from Leisure Games (https://leisuregames.com) about 10 days ago, and it's still listed as available on their website.
