A special thank you to all those that pre-ordered Arctic Scavengers. We will begin sending out your shipments this Saturday. The second batch will go out after Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy!

For those of you that would still like to pick up a copy at the discounted price of $19.95, be sure to swing by the Arctic Scavengers Home Page over at www.driftwoodgames.com. We will honor the pre-order price throughout this weekend. Starting Monday, the price jumps by $4 to the standard retail price.

Happy Gaming!

Luckily this game was the 'least hot' game to been seen on the frontpage of BGG, so I clicked on it and ordered a copy :-)

I hadn't heard of this game and was quite interested when I read more. I saw it on the left and it was the only game I didn't recognize there.

I did end up ordering Arctic Scavengers as well. The mechanics sound great and I like the art work as well.

Just placed my order!
After reading the rules, I think this game will be a big hit with my group.
We love Dominion and this one seems to borrow enough from it to make it familiar, whilst adding in some interaction/combat/aggression!

Hope I get my cards by the weekend!

The "aggression" part is what interests me. Not so much because I want to attack everyone, but because Dominion seems to have a slight runaway leader problem (though I am no expert on Dominion) and being able to attack another player would help. If, in fact, you can do that in A.S.

Got mine in the mail today. Arrived safe and sound. The art is quite nice. Will have to see if I get to try it out tonight.

Sheamus?
Out of curiosity...did you get any shipment confirmation email from them?
I have yet to receive any correspondance and was just curious.

My sincere apologies. We received a HUGE influx of orders over the weekend. We have gotten backlogged. Confirmation emails will be going out tonight.

Thanks for your patience and for your interest in the game!

Yeah, there certainly are opportunities to 'stick it to people' in A.S. You can totally cripple someone's ability to gather resources with a well-placed snipe (Sniper Team) or disarm (Saboteur). Additionally, you can sometimes determine who will win a contested resource by attacking someone during a skirmish. Finally, the skirmish itself is competitive, although you are really attacking everyone at the same time.

Heh. Yes, that is my name. The "H" is intentional. I live in Midwest USA and everyone would mispronounce it otherwise.

Yup, I got a confirmation email last Saturday and the game arrived today.

The box was a little squished, but the cards were in great shape.

As soon as school is out I certainly plan to bring this to my local game meetups. Also, it should go over well with family and some friends from church.

If this game is as good as it looks and sounds I think word of mouth will help get it more recognition.
