As the print run ist limited, we already allocated pretty much all the boxes to the various distributors all around the world.
If there will be a few left, I'll bring them to SPIEL.
No pre-orders, no direct sales. Not even if you send eMail, Geekmail and post in different fora (yep, that's the real plural of forum).
But ask your FLGS. They might be able to get it for you.

And: there's one card in there that has never been printed in any language. Not counting the deck cards.

Agricola: The Goodies? What's that all about? Don't tell me there's a Bill Oddie Occupation card.

Hanno, I'm curious, why only 2500? And What are the chances of either a second run (even if one is smaller) would be available?

Also would retailers in other parts of the world, will they happen to know how many are specifically allocated to them?

Why only 2500? Well, it's 3000 if you also count the Spanish copies Homo Ludicus does.
We just don't know how many people out there want to buy it, so we have to rely on the numbers our distributors order from us.

Alliance will deal the American continent, Shire Games the small island with the Queen, and Heidelberger the rest of the world. That's where retails can order from.

Goodies


Thanks. But I've got all that stuff, except for English versions of the Czech and L-decks. I hope they're available separately. As for the one extra card that hasn't been released yet, if that isn't available separately, I'll have to make use the Kreativer Kopf card instead.

I believe Hanno has confirmed that the CZ-deck will be available separately in English later, most likely next year.

Thanks Hanno, this information is appreciated. I can now only hope I luck out in being able to get this "set"

Update:
Our US distributor just placed a second order today, as their first allocation was sold out within one day.
Wow. I *am* surprised.
So we'll need to do a second print run to make sure nobody is unhappy.
As it always takes some time to get the wooden resources, the game box will hit the North American continent in two waves.

Congratulations on the speedy sales. When will the Goodies be arriving at distributors?
