This evening at my FLGS there was one copy of RftG:GS. No it is my own, my precious.

Didn't know what to spend all this sweet GG on, so I bought the overtext.

Wow, rare to see a game available at a small FLGS before it hits even one online retailer.

I've been seeing this more and more lately. Can't say why.

Dreamers quite often has a one-off copy product that is not in general release. The owners visit with their distributors quite often from what I gather and will often have some little pre-release gem sitting there for a great find.

I played the expansion with Chris last night, so he's not joshing you.

I have been seeing this a ton at the Source in Roseville, MN. I have to believe this is an edge they are trying to get over the less expensive online stores - using the "I need it NOW" factor.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Shouldn't it be 'officially released' as soon as the store has a copy to sell? I mean, they're late enough already.

One of the guys in my game group bought here at the Games by James yesterday. I wonder if they have more than one copy?!


I'm shocked! The Games by James in Minneapolis are stocked with party games and Monopoly, and have at most a dozen eurogames, none of which are recent releases at all.

I got it on Wednesday, but I preordered it so that might be why. Personally I like the idea is FLGS being able to get games first. The online stores may be cheaper, but if you want it faster go local.

The store here has copies sitting on the shelf. They say they're not allowed to sell them until Monday.

As of today, The Source had a few on the shelf and 1 case in reserve. Doubtful that they'll sell out today, but I wouldn't wait too long.
