See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

Is there a retailer that offers some sort of subscription service for these things? I'd happily pay a bit per pack/expansion for this kind of service, even if it required signing up for a period (i.e., agreeing to buy twelve adventure packs and the first expansion all at once or something and having them shipped as they're released - or an even longer period than that).

Is anyone doing that?

I'll bet FFG marketing dept wishes they thought of that. They might just have a job waiting for you now...

You might want to ask a local game store if they are willing to do this for you, ala comic subscriptions. They will usually provide a decent discount in return for a purchase commitment.

My FLGS is going to have them on pre-order for me and he orders every week from his distributor. So when they come out he will be ordering these. Local games stores rock, everyone who can should support them.

Myriad Games, my FLGS, offers subscriptions and I believe they offer flat rate shipping.

It'd be great if FFG did this directly. Especially since their shipping tends to be cheaper than online retailers (at least to México). If they offered some kind of discount for it (like P500), they'd make a lot of us very happy.

*rant*

Amazon seriously needs to do something like this. I read a number of book series with a new book coming out for each series every few months. I'd *much* rather Amazon puts the book in my cart, rather than I search for it on Amazon.

Amazon *does* have a "renewal" service for consumables, such as dental floss.

*end rant*

Awesome. I'll have to investigate how to put money into my PayPal account (just spent what I had... in LOTR LCG!) and I'll be signing up for the service (unless my FLGS can do the same for me at roughly the same price, in which case I'll support them).

You can pay using your credit card through PayPal. Just an FYI.
