I just received my copy of Snow Tails (along with some other games) today from Cardhaus and it did not come with the bonus "Leap of Death" tile.

So there's a word of warning to anyone planning on ordering the game from Cardhaus.

There's a chance, of course, that it was a mistake. I'm going to contact Cardhaus about the issue and report their reply on this thread.


EDIT: I received a reply from Cardhaus clearing up the confusion. See my later post for the details. Also, I'm changing the name of the thread now to reflect the news.

Re: Cardhaus does NOT include the bonus tile
Was it supposed to include it or was it advertised as including it?

The only online retailer I've seen stating that Snow Tails comes with the bonus tile is Games Surplus.

Re: Cardhaus does NOT include the bonus tile
My understanding is that the bonus tile was supposed to be available to all orders of the first printing of the game in North America. If that's incorrect I'll certainly amend the title of this thread. Looking at other message threads for this game though tells me that other online retailers DO supply the bonus tile. So if Cardhaus is an exception to that, I want to warn my fellow gamers.

Re: Cardhaus does NOT include the bonus tile
I also ordered from Cardhaus and did not receive the bonus tile. I put a request in for it at the time of my order but I never received confirmation or denial that they would include it. Disappointed sure, but I really should have asked before placing my order. Now I have to search for an alternative way of getting the tile. Grrrrrr.

Hmm... that doesn't give me much hope of getting it from them...

Let me be clear, they did not advertise the tile, nor did they indicate in any way that they would include it at the time of my order. I do not fault them. However, other online retailers, such as Games Surplus (mentioned by Walt earlier this thread) and CoolStuffInc (mentioned by posters in another thread) indicate that at least some online retailers offer it.

If Cardhaus does not, I think fellow gamers would want to know.

My understanding (and I may be wrong) is that it was included with all pre-orders of the game through an FLGS. This may or may not have included online stores, but I reserved mine through a B&M store for that reason.

Re: Cardhaus does NOT include the bonus tile
Thought Hammer copies of Snow Tails ships with the Leap of Death tile.

I thought that the Leap of Death tile is suppose to be for all copies (of the first print run) in North America.

Bouldergames includes the Leap of Death tile in its product description.

I preordered with them a while back and it looks like they just got it in stock.

Re: Cardhaus does NOT include the bonus tile
If anyone has more information about which online retailers do and don't provide the bonus tile, please share it here. So far, the here's the list of online retailers that have been mentioned by various BGG members.


Online Retailers who DO include the bonus tile:
Cool Stuff Inc
Boulder Games
Thought Hammer
Games Surplus
Boards & Bits
CARDHAUS
(see my later post for details)
Time Well Spent



Online Retailers who DO NOT include the bonus tile:
None Known



I'll try to update the list as we get more information. Again, this isn't meant to be a lynch mob against retailers who don't distribute the tile, but I think this is useful information that potential buyers of the game would like to know.

Re: Cardhaus does NOT include the bonus tile
All stores, online or else receive the Bonus Tiles at the same time they receive Snow Tails from their respective distributors. Asmodee don't have any additional tiles. They receive one tile for each one Snow Tails box they produce for the first US print run.

I just picked up my order from Boulder Games and it did include the Leap of Death tile...however, they did mention that they had more copies of Snow Tails right now than they did copies of the Leap of Death tile...they're trying to get more of the tiles though...

Re: Cardhaus does NOT include the bonus tile
Saw two copies at The Compleat Strategist in NYC and both had the bonus tile attached to the box. No idea how many more may be in the back, nor what the state of those boxes are.

Re: Cardhaus does NOT include the bonus tile
Ok, I got a reply back from Cardhaus. Great news for anyone who ordered from them:

Eric at Cardhaus wrote:
Hello Chris,

Apparently Asmodee told the public this without telling their distributors this.

You are not the first to ask us about it, and when I asked my distributor about this last week, he contacted Asmodee, and they said they would send some to him. So...we will be getting some soon, probably next week, and I will make note to send you a copy when they come in.

Thanks
Eric


That's outstanding!


I would recommend that anyone who ordered from them should specifically email them and ask for the piece, just to make sure you're on the list.

I receive my game (along with 5 others) from CoolStuffInc last night and the bonus tile was in the shipping box.

Note: I almost threw it away by accident. I was dumping the packing peanuts into a smaller box for a trade I'm shipping and the bonus tile fell out. It was just lying loose in the bottom of the shipping box. If it hadn't fallen out with the peanuts, it was on it's way to our recycle bin.
