I finally broke down and ordered this game yesterday from Thoughthammer.com (very quick service by the way...cheap plug for them) but first I tried to find it at a store in my area. Now I live in Quincy, MA so my area includes Boston. Also I had to go to a wedding in southern New York this past weekend a I got to look in a local hobby store there.

Not only did these stores not have the game I usually got a blank look when I mentioned the title. Is this game only available online? Has anyone seen it on a store shelf anywhere?

It's too bad if stores aren't getting this game in as I'm sure it would find a larger audience if it was "out there" so to speak.

Just curious what everyone else's experience has been in locating this game.

Afraid i cant help you much. Me live in europe, recently started a gaming group. Been reading alot about this one and finally after a week of doubting i bought it on ebay. Luckely the dollar euro rate of lately are a bit on my side. Still payed around 55 euro for the game but that included the shipping and a set of promos. A bit much but wanted it badly so i finally give in to my urges

So basically i never seen it in a store but thats not to surpising is it.

It's at Funagain, and before someone rants at me about online retailers versus FLGS, Funagain IS my local store. There's one here in Oregon and one in Colorado.

Our local store was very excited about getting in a couple copies of this a week or two ago; I imagine they have some in by now.

Unfortunately the only gaming store close to me is predominantly a toy store and has a terrible selection. So I have to pick most of my games off the net. I would rather be supporting the local guy.

That is exactly how I feel...I really want to support the small local store before I buy from an online site. It's interesting to read where some places are getting in this game and some have no clue about it.

I bought a copy a week ago at the Compleat Strategist in Boston. They may be out of it now (I haven't been back since), but they certainly know about the game and have had at least one copy.

After running the game at my FLGS, they sold every copy! It didn't take long for them to order more and as of last Friday, all but two of these were sold.

Perhaps FFP should put us on comission?

For anyone that's local to the Boston area and wants to support their local FLGS. Here's a link to them:

I got my copy at my FLGS(Games Plus, Mount Prospect, IL). That was over 3 weeks ago though and they only had a couple few copies. It sounds like FFP underestimated the demand for the game(which is understandable since it is there first game) and they are selling out rather quickly.

Certainly isn't in Australia yet cry

Trying real hard not to order it from an online retailer. (The shipping costs more than the game!!!)

Ben.
