I was wondering when this game will be released in the UK?

Just keep watching your favourite online wargame supplier for announcements. They will be buying it in from the wholesalers within the next week as far as I know.

I emailed my favourite last week and they said "watch the pre-order page next week and get your order in quick" so I reckons it will be sold out pretty damned quick.

I suspect most if not all the onluine shopkeepers use BGG and will be well aware of the interest in this game so as long as enough stock arrives in the UK there should be enough to go round (yeah right - just like the UK supply on Nintendo Wii's).

We just upped our purchase with our distributor for CoH. This has been our most popular pre-order since Devil's Cauldron and I expect it to sell very well once it comes out.

Wargame Depot will have a lot of copies. However, I can't imagine the print run is very large for the game (first game by Academy), so a quick sell out seems quite possible.

Just my wild guess - I have no "inside" info on the print run.


Cheers,
Jason

I forget where, but Uwe mentioned that the first printing has already been sold out (to pre-orders and distributers) but a second printing with an extra worker shift is already underway. From the sounds of it this will only mean a couple weeks or so difference for those people that will have to wait for the second printing.

Just made my pre-order from my fave online supplier (in the UK) as it has just this minute appeared on their website. The pre-order page said "Due: 30th July" so fingeres crossed .....

Really looking forward to this one as I have managed to snare a mate into playing Memoir 44 and while he will only play M44 and no other, I think I might be able to persuade him to expand his repertoire.

Looks like we are suffering the 1:1 dollar to pound conversion rate again. This game is only $49.99 in the States (£25).

Can anybody suggest a good US online supplier with reasonable international delivery rates?

How the hell do they justify this!! Particularly when the dollar is so weak to the pound! Really annoys me.

Its the same with pretty much everything.

If you can find a US supplier with cheap shipping you can guarantee you'll get a hefty import tax Theres a chance you won't of course but I gave up buying stuff overseas after getting stung a couple of times - worked out more expensive in the long run.

godd luck if you try it though.

PS They might localise the language in the instructions so you'll be reading "color" and looking it up in your Anglo-US dictionary and going "oh they mean colour"

The game weighs 7LB so I am guessing they have to play a lot of postage to get them to the UK in the first place (seeing as it's being imported from the US).

Re: UK Release?
Has anyone in the UK received their copy yet (or even seen one in a shop)?

The UK orders are at the freight forwarding company in the States I think. They consolidate the orders to be shipped to Europe. The good news is that the games have left the building! The same goes for all orders bound for Italy, France, Spain, and Germany. How they get to Europe, I do not know. If per air, the games could breeze through customs or they could get held up due to stricter import controls. One never knows.

Picked my copy up from the shop yesterday afternoon. Nick at www.shiregames.com was good enough to email me when he had some copies and I picked it up on the way home.

Just need someone to play it with now!
