Okay... I want a copy of this game.

I know that Zman just restocked, and other on-line retailers are probably getting this.. but according to the websites I have visited, no one has this now, excepting, of course, Zman.

I wanted to find as low a price as possible. Does anyone have an idea of where this might be for the lowest price, including shipping?

Unless a special sale pops up (and you'll see notices here usually), check out www.boardgameprices.com for a quick overview of the market... it's not always current, but it helps.

I believe Pandemic has a street date of 11/26, so no one should be selling it before then

I have a pre-order sitting at CoolStuffInc for $22.99

They have free shipping on orders of $100 or more.

I've only done a single game order from them once, and shipping to Michigan was $8 I believe.

Street dating a game that has already been released seems, well odd.

The first two printings sold out. The second printing before the shipment even arrived by ship. Street date is for the latest reprint.

It makes sense. When something has been out of print for a while, the publisher wants to give everyone a chance to get the game before anyone starts selling. Otherwise some retailers have a slight advantage by being closer to the distribution channels.

Will you ship so that games arrive on the street date?

Does anyone do that with board games? Even with video games it can be hard to get that

I'd love to do this, but I've been asked not to. I don't know what everyone else does.

I guess it's one more way to try to even things up between FLGS and OLGS

Thanks for being so forthright, Tom. Does this mean you'll probably ship on the 26th, then?
