A little email birdie told me that Funagain has copies once again. I am not sure how many.

Wow, they jacked up the price big time. When I bought my copy from them during their first stocking it was only $45.

Yeah I think they jack the price up of almost all of their games,hence why I will never shop with them. It is their choice to do so and apparently there are enough people who are willing to spend the extra money to keep them in business.

I am just waiting for the Wii phenomenon to occur where short run games are hoarded so people will charge crazy prices to people who want the game.

I wonder why no one else is stocking this game. Does Funagain have another of their hated exclusives on this one?

I was able to put an order through for a copy, but after two days my order detail still says "Your order is waiting to be reviewed by a customer service representative." What gives? Are they just really busy?

That's already happening, people are buying up games in short supply in order to resell them on eBay. It would be even worse if the retailers listened to you and sold the games even farther below true market value.

It's getting closer. My order detail now says "Your order has been completed and is in our warehouse for shipment."

Not that I'm anxious or anything...

what is annoying me is that no one is letting us pre order this game, so we have to keep hovering around sites waiting in hope that they will release a case for us to feeding frenzy on.

I got read the "in-stock" email on Saturday morning (it was sent Friday night) and they were already out. That, to me, is more heinous than the price-gouging.

Sorry to disappoint your theory about my desire for companies to charge crazy low prices but I pay retail all the time and in fact miss the days of the local retailer and quality service. Paying retail for a game is not the issue, but it is paying above retail, especially when I have to order a game because my local store can't order a product. But thanks for thinking about me anyway.

There's no official "retail price" for Galaxy Trucker, the few copies available now are ones that individual game sellers imported from Europe in small quantities. The true "retail price" would be the one at which supply balances demand---but they are currently being sold for significantly less than that, as evidenced by how quickly they sell out.

That answers my question about the English version being out yet or not.

The limited supply seems like this would be ideal for a Dutch auction.

I was able to snag a copy from Time Well Spent for around $47. I know that they could have sold it for over $60 as other companies have done, but instead they chose to offer it at a reasonable price and in the process gained me as a future customer. Kudos for Time Well Spent for taking care of its customers. BTW, shipping was quick too!

I talked to one of the guys at Time Well Spent and he told me that the box of Galaxy Trucker came in unannounced (in fact they were waiting for a shipment of League of Six). Czech Games must have a difficult time filling orders, especially in the US.

So you are saying that Funagain charges more for games that other companies? Doh. Plus their shipping is over-priced and not that reliable - Fedex delivered my order to the wrong apartment complex and to the wrong apartment # in that complex). Took me several hours to find it.

Jay told me a few days ago that he'd be distributing Galaxy Trucker in a few weeks, so unless you NEED it now, I'd wait since the prices will probably get cheaper.
