I just got an email from CSI (coolstuffinc) saying that Ora & Labora will release today! Also, Dungeon Petz is already released (and still in stock). I figured I'd get the word out for people looking for copies!

Dungeon Petz is in as well. I just got the email.

I'm contemplating going and picking up Ora today. My office is about 5 minutes from Coolstuff's Orlando store.

I thought about having Last Will on my order but I decided on a strategic order of Ora, Dungeon Petz and Friday :) Gets free shipping and you don't have to wait!

Never ordered from CSI before. I just ordered O&L a minute ago. Thanks for the head's up on the availability.

Jesse, your advocacy for the game is what tipped me toward doing the BUY GAME NOW NOW NOW thing. I don't ordinarily do that.

I have already played a friend's copy of MK, so its absence is only holding me up for playing solo scenarios. I may be able to get Ora on the table with my wife a night or two after it arrives.

It's probably also worth noting to those people that there are some component/production issues. I'm glad I know about these issues before I bought a copy.

Don't go yet. I just got back from there and it wasn't in yet. Kinda stupid for them to be it as "in stock" if they don't actually have it in the warehouse.

I preordered Ora et Labroa from Cool Stuff Inc. about a month ago along with the 2nd edition of War of the Ring. Unfortunately, War of the Ring is now out of stock at Cool Stuff Inc.

Does anyone know if Cool Stuff Inc. holds preordered copies of games for preorders, or do they just not ship preorders until all the items in the preorder are in stock at the same time?

Even though they're OOS on War of the Ring, I'm hoping they set one aside for me when they got their first shipment of it last month so that it can ship today with Ora...

I think they do this. Hopefully someone can confirm.

I'm pretty sure they hold them for you. I had an order with Eclipse in it earlier this year and when the other game came out they still shipped Eclipse to me.

I wasn't planning on going by until after work. I suspect they will have it by then.

CSI definitely holds copies on games included in a preorder. I've done this probably about 100 times and even if a game sells out, as long as it was in stock when I preordered I got it.

Thanks for the heads-up! I was going to run by when I finished with work, but now I'll call first!

Hi John,

Yes, we save a copy on the shelf for you. It would be pretty awful if we sold your copy. Your order will be shipped when all of your preordered items are in stock, It looks like it will be waiting on the LotR LCG Khazad-dum expansion to release.

If you need to make any changes please email us at info@coolstuffinc.com (or call us toll free (877) 274-6752).

Great news! The LotR expansion just arrived as well, so your order will go out today.

Thanks again,

Sorry about that, I think that confusion was because the copy on the newsletter was incorrect. I've spoken with the copy-writer about it and hopefully we won't have any confusion in the future.

I've also sent you a PM.

Brett,

The shipping emails go out in a batch later tonight so they are not real time. I'd like to look at changing that. Also the tracking numbers don't usually work immediately.

In any case, your order is shipping today, Cory just confirmed it for me.

Jerry

Didn't receive an actual notice, but I checked my account and it says "Order processed and ready to ship" with a FedEx tracking # (which doesn't work yet as Jerry noted).

Edit:

And shipped!!
