If you've put off your decision to pre-order American Rails, don't delay. This will likely be the final printing of the game, and ...

Only 20 more copies are available. Limited to one copy per person.

The pre-order price is $35 -- $5 off the standard price of $40. Shipping to the U.S. is $10. Shipping everywhere else is $17.50.

American customers *should* get it in time for Christmas. (International orders may get it in time too, but it depends on the postal service, which sometimes takes 4 to 8 weeks to ship internationally.)

To place your pre-order, visit:

http://www.gamesonthebrain.com/

... and click on the appropriate Paypal button.

About 300 copies now.

The first 3 printings were about 65 copies each. I doubled the size this time because nearly 100 people asked me to reserve a copy for them during the last year. Quite a few of them bailed after such a long time, but thankfully nearly all of the rest of the copies have been picked up by other people.

He's had some pretty bad family problems. The European customers will have to wait a little longer. Did you not get an email about it?

"Hi everyone,

Two days after fulfilling most of the American orders for American
Rails about 10 days ago, my father was taken to the hospital with
severe (and possibly fatal) health problems. He is still there now and
may be there for some time. Between dealing with that and
holiday/family gatherings, assembling and shipping the remaining
copies American Rails has been delayed. I hope you understand.

I'm going to try to finish things and ship the remaining copies this
week, but given my father's health situation, I can't make any
promises. It's entirely possible that they may not be shipped until
late next week.

I know this may be very disappointing to some of you, so if you'd like
to cancel your order and receive a full refund, please let me know and
I'll process it right away.

Sincerely,

Tim Harrison

I think he has started the European shipping. My copy was confirmed posted by Paypal today.

I hope everything turned out ok for him.

FWIW, I'm shocked Jeroen and James got it already. USPS First Class International usually takes at least two weeks and as long as six weeks.

Mine arrived today I can’t wait to play! I’m going to have to get that board mounted though. Nice little package, well done and thank you Mr Harrison.

I did end up getting stung with tax. £4.46 tax and then £8 handling on top of that, totalling £12.46! Let me get this straight - because I bought something outside of the country, that my government didn’t have anything to do with, I have to pay them money? Right... Because they have to look at what I bought to steal my money I have to pay them even more?

Can anyone justify this?

Because you chose to import goods through a service that did not handle customs charges, you mean?

Cause you get free health care? And cameras watching you everywhere?

I don't know. For whatever reasons governments want money from everyone since the invention of governments?

Well, you pay VAT for stuff you buy in UK, you pay VAT for stuff you buy from EU countries, why shouldn't you pay VAT for stuff bought outside EU?

That handling charge is nasty, though, and I'm glad in Finland there's a lower limit of 10 euros where taxes lower than that are not charged at all (probably because all the effort to get that money costs more than the tax) - much better solution than handling charges.

Free health care is a bit misleading, I pay for it every week out of my wages whether I use it or not and the care is less than satisfactory. Australia has much better system and from when I lived there it looked like a better quality of care for less money.

Maybe because people know no different they find it acceptable to pay this much tax on things. It gets my goat. I hate giving money to an incompetent, lying government. They have my country in 1 trillion pounds worth of debt and are off fighting wars that only profit National Banks and large corporations. The same people who pull the government strings. I could go on but this isn’t the place.


Ignore my rant.... Late night early morning

Saw this game get mentioned and the good things about it. Somebody posted a link to the site. I saw you can preorder it. I hear of limited print runs and there being around 300 copies around. I quickly preorder only to be told they are already sold out and it looks like the info was for last year. Oh, and it was the last printing of the game. (repeated head desk)

http://www.gamesonthebrain.com/americanrails/

This page really needs to be changed. This ranks up there with finding a store having Taluva at the normal price, ordering it, getting a confirmation e-mail, and then being told they actually didn't have it.
