I'm sticking with my before Christmas prediction.

Welcome to Preorders 101. Class is in session.

"Pre-ordering is to be generally avoided. One must never preorder multiple titles in the same order. In the rare case when does preorder, presumably to be sure to get a copy of an ultra-hot game which is feared to sell out the first print-run entirely on pre-orders, one should pad the order with other game(s) to get to free shipping, and obviously games that one is not in a hurry for. But the games used for padding MUST have guaranteed availability."

Yes, this will be on the final exam.

Class dismissed.

You can learn the lesson and still get free shipping. Reread my post about padding rules. There will be a TA available after class to help those who need a review session.

I am pretty excited about Mage Knight too. My (7) plays at BGG.Con were pretty fun and I am looking forward to teaching the locals. I expect it to get a lot of play locally.

Same here--I feel like my gaming life is on hold until Mage Knight and Eclipse arrive.

Those are the exact two games on my pre-order, although in my case they are the ONLY games, so it shouldn't be too bad.

I'm hoping I'll get them in by Christmas, but if not, it'll be Christmas II - The Sequel whenever they do come

Got this today in regard to my preorder. The rub is that I can't use the wormhole generator to go pick up the game because I won't have even researched the technology until the game gets delivered via snail mail!


Hi,
We'll send you Eclipse immediatly upon it's release (approx 5-10 days)

Thanks,
JF

Notice the title: "Eclipse (Preorder)"
Translation: They merely have 8 copies on order that haven't already been claimed by preorders.

Agreed, BUT it does say "availability-in stock". I can dream can't I?

That is pretty cheesy of them to say in stock on a pre-order.

With high demand games, I always pre-order to ensure I get my copy upon release. I was smart though, I added a copy of a game that has already released to my pre-order of Eclipse, so that I save shipping AND it doesn't get held up!
