Just to confirm that we are now sold out of our pre-orders for this game.

There may be a small number of games available at Essen as we will only know the exact final print run number when we get there. We cannot take pre-orders for these games as we have no control over the precise number of games produced.

The response to our game launch has been astounding. We sold out of 900 games in 11 days.

Thanks to everyone for their support.

Cheers,

Gordon and Fraser Lamont (The Lamont Brothers)
Fragor Games

David,

We are still catching up. We have replied up to about 10.30am gmt today. If you had pre-ordered after we sold out (about 11pm gmt) then you would have received an instantaneous response.

We are working on.... 1.10 am here but I am now going to bed snore

Cheers,

Gordon

A game sells out within 11 days with no rules or detailed information other than some pictures of cute bits. Get a life, people.

So glad I ordered my copy

PS To Gordon and Fraser. Now that you are sold out can we please stop the tease??? Full fish pics and rules NOW.

Seriously through - well done!

Actually, there is a pretty complete description about the game out there in the void of the net. Not in English however. And we also saw the reference sheets.

I Was happy to shell out for this, and I'm still Squids in.

Agree ! We want the rules ! We deserve it !
Each day that passes without the possibility to download Poseidon's Kingdom rules is one point added to the Lamont brothers' Cruelty Gauge.

We just wanna know what this salty game is about !

Everybody with me : WE WANT THE RULES ! WE WANT THE RULES ! arrrh

Wow. This is officially the most depressing thread I have ever seen on BGG. soblue

We just played a game of Antics with the kids last night and enjoyed it a lot as usual. Made me think "Hmmm... I wonder what those guys are up to next." So I check this morning and see that I have really missed out, and by such a small margin! I'll hold out hope that I can pick one up second-hand one day, but this is a bummer.

Congrats to those who snagged a copy!

I assume you guys are all caught up by now or is there still a chance? I placed the pre-order 2 days ago and got an auto response stating that the count was not clear and that I'd get another response one way or anover.


Hi Ari,

I have now sent out emails from the preorder account for those who were sent a holding message. I won't go into it here in case in confuses the issue for those that received the sold out message.

cheers,
Fraser

A link would help to the description.

Same here. I think I am glad I did it. Though I honestly have no idea what to expect. Go, go impulse buying!

Any chance there will be a second print run? Especially with such good turn out!

No.

The Fragor's explain their business model in this thread: Open letter to the Fragors: Why limit to 1000?.

Specifically: Re: Open letter to the Fragors: Why limit to 1000?

To paraphrase - they produce 1000 copies of a game to generate buzz and excitement to help convince a big publisher to pick up the game. This has always been their model and has worked in the past:

Sheer Panic >> Zoch & Mayfair
Snow Tails >> Asmodee
Savannah Tails >> Kosmos

No word if Antics has been picked up despite its buzz and popularity. And only time will tell with Poseidon's Kingdom.
