My first choice of retailers has been unsuccessful in stocking these titles so I have to look elsewhere to acquire them. Anyone have good / bad experiences when ordering these?

Note that I'm looking for the new expansion that includes the jump and I'm not interested in the new Pitchcar Mini.

As always, thanks for the help.

Pitchcar
Hi,

I know Thor at www.gamesurplus.com had it stock at the beginning of the year (I asked him about it, but don't have the funds now to purchase it).

Good luck.
Mike

Funagain has the extension:
http://www.funagain.com/control/product/~product_id=014273

However, they no longer stock the base set. Is it OOP now?

There is a new Pitchcar expansion, and this one has a real jump, not just flat ended cross-over pieces that are easily converted into jumps. The Funagain listing looks like it is the first expansion, they just refer to the cross-overs as "ramps" (a common mistake).

I was just searching this weekend to see second extension was available, and the closest I saw was this:

http://www.boardsandbits.com/proddetail.asp?prod=PitchCarPlu...

Unfortunately, this is the second expansion bundled with the main game, not separately.

Package deal
Well that certainly covers what I'm after. Looks like the price is in line with what the items would be if purchased seperately (aside from Gamefest which lists them at $50 and $20 respectively - that would be nice!)

Now do I really want to spend the $132 (after shipping) for it?

Boulder Games is also selling Pitchcar Mini, which we got from them. Just as much fun, fits on the table better, and costs less.

And not much use if you have normal Pitchcar.

Actually, the Ferti site has an interesting picture of a Pitchcar and Pitchcar Mini set combined by using the jumps to transfer between the different tracks. I'd love to at least try a setup like that!
