Perhaps you should read more carefully: (Edited because the post Nazis are in an uproar.)

Quote:
We will start shipping Agricola, one of the most raved-about games of the past few years, Tuesday, oldest preorders first.


It says in stock....but then Zev said it was allocated...and further I wonder how many copies are really "for sale".

Just an aside on geeks and internet correspondence generally. It is fascinating how often you see this type of minor snark.

It's like people have to phrase things in insulting or intellectually challenging ways.

We have to say, "Perhaps you should read more carefully," because apparently just saying something like, "I'm not sure that's right, if you look further down the page," would just be too polite and friendly.

It's possible that Jim ordered more than his pre-order number to have a small amount of in-stock copies for sale.

When it was on pre-order, Jim said he was only pre-selling one-third of his order. This is the remaining two-thirds of his initial shipment, I presume.

I noticed this about 4 hours ago and place my order. I'm hoping they will have a copy for me come Tuesday.

I'm with you. My pet peeve is when someone starts their reply with "Ummm..."
It's like they're calling you a total moron to start things off.

Guess how many times I've typed this "often used minor snark":

Once.

Mine was actually an attempt to encourage you to buy now or miss out. Too bad my actually innocent comment was taken the wrong way.

I am a long time BGG user, and try to help out wherever I can; sorry you don't see it that way.

Thanks for nothing though.

umm...

Just kidding. I was looking at Boulder the other day for the game and they stated that they were only taking pre-orders up to 1/3rd of their allotment. That way if they didn't get the full allotment, they weren't on the hook to anyone. Any extras they received above that 1/3rd amount would be on sale first come, first served.

Nazis now! That's rich.

slyfrog's comment was perfectly diplomatic and, well, right. I don't see what made you get so bleeding defensive about it.

when the publisher says he's sold out... that only means that stores have purchase all of the publishers print run, that does not mean that the stores have sold all the copies that they purchased.

Thanks Ted, I have never ordered a game online so I do not know all the sites...like many I have been looking for a place to order since I missed the pre-order. I just ordered mine from Boulder (it still says In Stock). Hopefully I will join in the excitment soon!

I've never bled defensive...I always seem to bleed offensive
