Re: Funagain Games no more for me!
I feel you on the Funagain Games' debacle. I just got this email from FG after emailing them. Sorry Tom. Looks like I may be jumping off the FG train permanently.

Hello,

Thank you for your email.

We are supposed to get Eclipse on Tuesday of next week. The numbers were severely allocated by distribution. We do not have near enough coming to fill our pre-orders.

If you should be one of the early orders and do get a copy, we will send you an email letting you know it is time to pay by PayPal.

Thank you,

I believe that this happened to most of the major online retailers...Nobody received as many copies as they requested.

I know Miniature Market received enough for all preorders but I believe they undersold orders then added more slots once they knew the correct amount.

Re: Funagain Games no more for me!
Yeah, its pretty shady of Funagain to not get enough for preorders, yet still sell some through Amazon. Those copies should have gone to people with orders already.

What do they consider an early preoder?

I do admit it is pretty shady, as Amazon indicates another shipment from FunAgain for Saturday.

I had preordered from BoardGameHaus and got much the same email. They wouldn't receive untill Tuesday and there was no way it would make IL by Christmas.

I forked over the extra dollars and got one of the early copies from Fun Again through Amazon. I canceled my CardHaus order. My copy is already here in just 1 day. Can't wait to get home and play it.

Funagain could have directed those games (received before Tuesday) to the preorders but the pricing on Amazon was too good to pass up. What does it matter since preorders will ship Tuesday hopefully in time for Christmas and all is well and forgotten thinks Funagain.

I think one of the concerns is that FunAgain wont have enough stock to meet preorders.

Re: Funagain Games no more for me!
Funagain is not my first choice of online retailers because their prices are fairly high. However, I have got to say they have always been really up front with me and they are definitely a great company to deal with when I have had problems. When they have made a mistake with me one call and they went out of their way to make sure the problem was solved.

Boards & Bits took my pre-order, charged me, and sent the game that I received this morning. Great, dependable service.
