I have two new 9 Card Games: 300 Spartans and Franky's 1st Christmas

Sad news as I was hoping to order around Christmas time. Maybe it will be back in stock by then. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing the game get picked up by a larger publisher with some better US distribution. I'd imagine this would move fairly quickly through the GMT p500 system.

Guys,


Although I've sold out of my copies a couple of stores will still have some.

I'll be looking at the possibility of a re-print, rpobably in the new year, depending on possible demand.

Which one? I looked & couldn't find it in any of my regular searches (in fact, only Spirit games listed it, and they say they're out of stock!)

Hmm... I must have missed Leisure games when I did a quick trawl round. Glad you found it!

Uh... I think it's even less likely to be found in an American retailer. Noble Knights doesn't even say WTID is sold out, the item page is just gone.

Bloody hell!!!!! First of all congrats to Dan and co on what would seem to be a very positive reception to your initial release.

Secondly, I am one of the world's worst faffers when it comes to making a decision on a purchase. I do try to supress initial desires to allow a wider read of reviews and details etc, to help me to gauge whether parting with my hard earned cash is actually worth it. This game has proved to be the exception to this rule and I am so glad it did so.

Well, congratulations to Dan for the game being popular, and condolences, etc for those of you who weren't able to get a copy...

But we who have copies sure are enjoying them!!!! Sorry - had to rub a wee bit of salt in the wound... devil

Actually, I've been there before when I didn't get around to pre-ordering or purchasing a game until it was sold out or out of print (Can you say Twilight Struggle?). So I do feel genuine pain for you.

I hope for everyone's sake this game gets a reprint soon - and hopefully even a much larger run to boot!

Dan, you don't happen to know if any Swedish/Scandinavian distributor picked up any copies -- I held off pre-ordering due to the absurd postage hike over the Baltic (ferry) :(

Anyhow, big congratulations on the quick sell-through, and I really hope that you can find the resources to do a reprint . Paper map is all right, if that is what it takes :)

(And please, a Royal mail option for those of us willing to take our chances w/shipping.)

I'm hoping the game sold out, not only because it's excellent, but also because Dan made a small print run. Large print run = lower price?

After having discussed the problems of distributing a game weighing over 2kg with a number of people, last week I was mildly discontented to find Leisure Games selling this game. I wondered if I should mention it here. Putting aside those domestic buyers who can visit a shop and pick the game up for 35 quid, Leisure charge £3.50 post. Multiplying the number of copies printed by the difference between this and the £8.32 charged by the website shows by how much extra the brave boys of ParcelForce will benefit over Royal Mail. If shops and a distributor had been used from the beginning, all of this could have been saved. The military charities would have got a little less, but those last few pennies have cost WtiD buyers a lot. Some would have preferred to donate the £5 difference themselves.

Surely the charities wouldn't lose out based on the p&p? The contribution would be based on the £35 tag somewhere.

Anyhow, I'm glad I made a purchase on Saturday - I hope I catch one of them....

I ordered from leisure games last night on their internet site. Rang them this morning and they informed me that they are expecting some on Monday. He says these copies have been promised to him before they ran out so he does seem confident he will get them, I hope so!

Man, Dan, seems from people wanting to play your game, getting a publisher for a second printrun should be no problem. especially if this second printrun would have the safetynet of something like a p500 list.
cool

Anthony thanks for taking the time, I was really unsure as to whether leisure game would have the games or not (some online game store announce games that they don't have as they call for them when they receive an order).

Also, I must confess that I was doubtful as to disclose the information on where I bought it in order to avoid losing my petition! blush
