Esdevium are not currently soliciting orders from retailers.

They never did for World at War: Eisenbach Gap...

On a more positive note, they did make World at War: Death of the 1st Panzer available to retail, so maybe they've learned...

That, I'd imagine, is also Esdevium's thought - if they can't make enough of a profit, they don't import them, or they only import for a select few retail outlets. And sadly, 'modern' wargames don't sell as well as WWII or older.

Having said that, I ordered both World at War: Eisenbach Gap and World at War: Death of the 1st Panzer from a US store (admittedly at a far better exchange rate) for only a pound or two more than I could get it from some UK-based Internet stores! Even when games are available here, the markup is frightening...

Esdivium bought hundreds of copies of WaW: EG from us. They've also bought B&B.

To be accurate, it may well be available from them by now - it was not listed on their 'new releases' sheets, and was not 'on the computer' at that time. Since I bought mine elsewhere, I haven't asked again. We should see within a week or so...

Let's hope so - I got the first 2 parts direct from LnL but the shipping (and VAT) are pretty horrible.

I understand, Darrell, but that's what USPS charges us. On the positive side, we are negotiating a contract with UPS that might drop shipping to GB by 3-5$...not much, but I know every bit helps.

Unfortunately UPS often enforce the VAT/Import duty rules so we get caught for those.

I understand. It doesn't seem fair that USPS somehow dodges import taxes, but UPS must pay them.

Anyone in the UK found anywhere selling this game yet? It seems to be a long time getting to the on-line stores I usually use.
