You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Band of Brothers is sold out at Worthington Games as of this morning. There are still some downstream copies to be had so I just wanted to give a heads up to any who are still on the fence.

A BIG THANK YOU! TO:

- All those who pre-ordered. You made the game possible.

- Those who have talked up the game. The word of mouth has been great and has been a big factor in it selling out.

- Those who have been active asking and answering questions in the forums. I want to make this game/series as good as possible and I will put your feedback to good use.

THANKS!

That's good news of course, but did the game reached the european retailers? Just to make an example, can I still find it soon on online game stores like leisuregames or gameslore (both UK based)?

Thanks and congratulations!

Glad I ordered mine a couple of days ago! Read the rules online and they are very interesting. Can't wait to play it. I make a lot of my own counters and maps and I'd like to see this system in the middle east wars of the 50s and 60s.

Congratulations, Jim. I've only just played my first scenario, but I am quite impressed so far (and I've played more or less all the tactical WW2 games out there, including ASL for years).

Well, some did. I got a copy from Heron Games cosimshop.de.

I would recommend contacting Worthington Games and Grant Wylie directly.

Ordering from the publisher will mean not only paying for the game and postage to Europe, but also for customs duty and associated 'handling' charges; usually a figure just shy of £20. Such charges really take the shine off.

I have been waiting for this game to appear in the UK stores but have not seen a single copy.

Are there plans for a reprint?

Congrats. Haven't found an opponent to try my copy with but have been following its progress with interest since I first heard about it.

Yes Ed, I know it's a shame, Italian customs apply taxes not only on the game, but also on the shipping cost! But Jim maybe meant to ask to the publisher about the distribution, I think he didnt suggest to buy it directly from Worthington

I'm told it'll hit J&J and/or Germangames soon here in Waterloo, that is, if the Canadian distributor has gotten their copies (please please please). Otherwise there is one copy for trade nearby if I have to.

Just a note for Canadians ... according to the guys at J&J their main Canadian distributor doesn't have any in the pipeline. I just managed a trade for a copy but BoB will be scarce here in these parts I suspect. Grab one if you find it.

Yikes! No where to be found. Called three local shops - sold out. Fun again and Wargamedepot have none, none on the BGG market.

Maybe that's good news!

Hopefully we'll see a reprint and another edition.

Update: I think this is just about sold out everywhere. It took me an hour to find a copy. An hour on the internet is a seriously long time.
