I just heard about this game on The Dice Tower. I am trying to find it for sale in the USA but can't find it anywhere? Does anyone know where this game can be purchased in the U.S.?

You can purchase it from the manufacturer (Impact Miniatures) at their online store.

If I remember right, there are four stores in the country that have physical product: this game isn't going through distributors at the moment, so it's all direct accounts with Impact. Unless you happen to be very lucky, or have a very accomodating FLGS that is willing to set up a new account with a little-known company, this is going to be an Internet purchase.

Not that I've had any problems ordering from Impact. And do be aware that some of the links on this site are dated: Phil's Phigs isn't really a going concern at the moment, so you want to use the Impact! Miniatures links.

Thanks for your input guys. This is going to be a pricey purchase with shipping and all. The game looks great though.

I bought a copy of the game from impact, and it shipped from the USA.
The website seems to be all in pounds but I don't think its based here.

Flat rate shipping is $4 for US orders anyway so likely won't break the bank.

I thought they had two shipping centers, with one in the UK and one in the US. Weird.

That's $4, or free if you order more than $50. Since that's two teams, or one team and a copy of the game, I'd be surprised if you're paying any shipping at all.

The site has US Dollar numbers on it so you know how much you're spending it's just that the Paypal check is in pounds.

Ordering the game with 2 teams is the best deal, by far! Ask about package deals if you're buying more than one team! Impact is a great company.

You have to login and have your account's currency set as dollars. If you don't, the Paypal checkout won't display the currency or shipping cost correctly.

I just ordered Elfball a few days ago and it took me a little bit to figure that out. Once you get logged in correctly, the entire price of the Elfball boxed set should total $34, that's $30 for the game and $4 shipping. I only ordered the boxed set as I didn't really like any of their team sets... I'll just play with Blood Bowl figs.

Create an account on the right side of the website: http://www.impactminiatures.com. When you create an account set your currency to US Dollars (USD). Then login.

When you login ... all of the prices on the entire website will switch to US Dollars for you. Shipping is $4 flat and the product ships from Indianapolis. The game is $30.00 USD. If you order $50 or more worth of product (so a game with a team or two of figures) ... then shipping is free.

Hope you try and enjoy the game! Any other questions please ask ... and if you have a link to where Elfball was mentioned on the Dice Tower ... I'd love to know because I cannot find it.

I am looking forward to getting this one, I love Battleball, and have looked into Blood Bowl, but this one sounded better to me. I heard about it from a review at :

http://www.drakesflames.blogspot.com/

Thanks for the info on how to get it, having a distribution pt. in the states really helps, I thought it would be hard to get!
