It's probably too far in the distance to get too worked up about this, but Amazon is taking preorders for FFG's upcoming Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game at $26.37, and the game is eligible for Super Saving Shipping. (Hat tip to the BSG board game thread posters who put me on to this.)

Amazon seems to think it is a hardcover book about the board game. FFG's new Core Set for A Game of Thrones Card Game also appears listed as a hardcover book for preorder. I wonder if this is going to cause them problems actually fulfilling these orders.

On the off chance this will actually work out, I ordered a copy. £18.44 to the UK. Nice.

EDIT: It is now available for Pre-order on Amazon.co.uk, so I have cancelled my US order and placed one there.

They do this a lot. I've ordered "book" listed games from them before with no problem.

Same here. I ordered the Talisman pre-order from them - no problems.

Thanks for the link, Sean. I don't know why that didn't occur to me.

If I had to guess why it's listed as a hardcover, I'd say it had something to do with how Amazon classifies things eligible for free shipping. That's pure speculation, but, as others have noted, there's a pattern there.

Now FFG just needs to get this out the door in October. October 2008.

It's no problem. I reckon it's probably similar to the inventory system at Borders, where some of the games there, at least when I worked there, were classified as Hardcovers because they were "hard-backed products."

At least that's what I was told when I worked there....

I also preorderd Talisman. They gave me a 10% additional pre-order discount (on Talisman), but then took that away.

When do they actually charge your credit-card? I would like to get in on the good deal, but don't have the "flow" at the moment. ninja

Cheers

As near as I can determine, yes, they charged my credit card when I submitted the order.

with books (all i have ever pre-ordered from amazon) they usually do not charge my card until the order is processed for shipping.

I just got my Amazon.com statement and I can now confirm that my credit card has not yet been charged for this order.
