Very interested in getting hold of this one but just missed pre-ordering on MMP

Just had a quick trawl through the posts on the Consimworld forum but no mention of when it might be hitting the shores of Blighty. Anyone in the know out there able to give an update?

in anticipation

Well it will be at least a couple of weeks before they start shipping to retailers. They have been running behind with the demand for OP Special #1.

Iain,

You might want to follow the consimworld threads:

http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?8@696.xVdje7mjfLr.12@.ee6d5...

http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?50@359.xHu8evFGlYW.3@.1dd30...

In hopes of gleaning your answer. Or email MMP directly.

I have read that SoS is starting to ship today to customers and retailers in the US.

Sincerely,

Iain

Just got off the phone with MMP regarding my pre-order and was told that Storm Over Stalingrad will be shipping in the next couple of days.

Eric,

Unfortunately, that is not obvious from the MMP website. A review of my customer order for Storm Over Stalingrad shows no indication of either charging or shipping nor have I received any such information from MMP by other means. shake The entire MMP pre-order process appears to be shrouded in secrecy. surprise

Here is the secret formula

Check the MMP preorder page every 2 days and record how many preorders there are for the game. The day that Brian removes the preorder for your item they probably started assembling the games within the previous day. Now assign a value to how many pieces go into the game box to give it an assembly weight (1-5) X the number of preorders. Divide this by the minimum number of people assembling and shipping (I usually use 2) and a work factor of 200. This will give you the number of days to ship all of the preorders.

Now that you known how many days, just use your favorite random number generator to select a day (do not forget to discard all 1s because your order is never one of the first out the door) then add your average shipping time from Baltimore and you have it.

I have received my pre-order today, and I live in the UK.

MMP's website has this game for general sale now.

Nice one Steve

I'm just debating whether to order from MMP or wait to see if any UK suppliers are getting it in stock

Since it just went up for sale on the web site non-US retailers will still take a little while to get it. I do not think this will not sell out in the first couple of months so you can be patient, if you can be patient

Of course with the weak dollar it may just be cheaper to order it through MMP and pay the shipping as opposed to paying for it in pounds.

postage is quite high on this one, my pre-order cost about £30, on past experience i suspect that IGUK will sell it for a similar price so you may as well wait.

Thanks for your input. I think I'll wait till it hits Blighty as the price looks to be around £30.
