Would like to know why Mayday would sell to/through Tanga for a much reduced price when they have more demand than they can meet anyway at the higher price through their own website.

Seth, care to commment? Are these ding/dent copies? Slighlty flawed in some way?

Seth said that Tanga purchased that at near retail and was selling them as a loss leader.

As of now...SOLD OUT

Tanga bought these at close to retail and has just a few of them, they are using it as a loss-leader from what we can tell. Mayday is totally out of them and will not be restocking for a few months.

Yes Tanga reserved these at close to full retail and offered them as a special to some newsletter subscribers or something and not on their main page to the general public. They purchased them and had a right to do with them as they wanted.

Yes ours are sold out and you can only preorder for the next wave which will be a couple of months we expect. You may want to check with BoardsandBits and Toad And Troll though, they also got some very limited allocations. Other than that your best bet is to try your local game store and ask them to carry it.

We are shipping out to all the preorder customers around Friday!

I just got one of the last ones on Tanga today. I played on one of these boards at Gen Con. It seemed like a good quality board (not that I have much experience with Crokinole boards). I almost bought one if the demo boards there but now I'm glad I waited.

Update:

Just got a notice that my board is shipping out today! Yahoooooo!
