... not to preorder games from any game company but Treefrog.

I dutifully preordered Guards! Guards! as soon as preorder was available. After waiting anxiously for many weeks for the game to be ready I get an email telling me that the preorder is delayed because they didn't get the book marker we were promised as a preorder bonus. Now, I really don;t care that much about the book marker but I just wanted to make sure I received the game as quickly as possible.

Last night I was in my FLGS and lo and behold there were two copies of Guards! Guards! on the shelf just begging to be bought and played.

Someday I will learn not to preorder games.

Well, the copy of Discworld: Ankh-Morpork I preordered is running a bit late because they have run out of linen paper in Germany or something.

I can fully understand your frustration on this. We had worked hard to make sure that those who had pre-ordered Guards! Guards! would receive their copies at the same time (or before) the game went on sale in the shops.

Unfortunately we had not accounted for the postal service losing part of the shipment.

I apologize to you and everyone else in the US who pre-ordered our game.
We have sent another consignment of the limited edition bookmarks to Z-Man and your games should be despatched to you later this week.

regards
Leonard.

Yeah, I got mine a week or so ago and then an email a couple of days ago saying it had been shipped!
Also still waiting for my Ankh-Morpork special edition thanks to the german linen paper crisis...

Jeff,

I completely understand how you feel. I am the opposite though, I really really really had to have the bookmark. I actually want all of them. I actually found out about the pre-order a little late and was glad to sneak in on it. I initially thought it was for Europe and not the States. If you don't want yours maybe we can arrange a trade of sorts, I also go home every day and ask the wife is it here yet, is it here yet? I'd give the company a bit of slack though. If they shipped the game without bookmarks I'm reasonably certain 100's of rabid Terry Pratchett fans would have lost their minds.
