I'm sure some of the vendors will have copies, yes. But it'll be available weeks before that through online retailers and local game shops. The current projected release date is July 8th.

It could also potentially be sold at the Wizards booth but it doesn't say D&D or MtG on it so I wouldn't hold my breath.

I don't think Wizards of the Coast would have it at their stand. They are notorious for not promoting any of their products unless it has Magic or D&D on the product. Like Axis & Allies Pacific 1940 was out in stores a whole week before they even had any info on their website that they were even making it. They are horrible at promoting games that are not Magic or D&D products.... They really frustrate me at times.



Edit: grammar and spelling...

Yeah, I just hope they can continue this game for a bit before discarding it. I am of course saying this before playing the game but I am sure I would love to have expansions for this game. More sculpts, more aliens, more comics. Love it.

Like anything else, it depends on how well it sells. It's a mixed feeling/blessing thing having this game as Hasbro parent co vs. WOTC. While WOTC is essentially where anything not Magic or D&D goes to die, by many accounts their targets for sales seem to be a lot lower than the mass market Hasbro games. The main thing that BS Galaxies has going against it, vs. an item (system) like Heroscape is, as far as I can tell, there's simply no reason to buy more than one copy of the game. With Heroscape, everyone (including me) that got into the game bought several master sets and multiple terrain packs (to say nothing of multiple squads, but this is more of a terrain argument as BS Galaxies will probably see future ship expansions). I'm thinking that BS Galaxies is not going to see the kind of multiple copy sales that the limited audience for the game is going to produce, especially when there's no obvious reason to buy multiple copies. We'll probably see an expansion or three, as they're likely already in the works, but I don't see this pulling in the numbers Hasbro is going to need to see long term.
