Hey fellow BGG'rs, just wanted to make a note about this. I saw in a couple of reviews that some local B&N's had the game. Excited, I went to my local store, they didn't have it. Called another two they didn't gave it.

Upon researching it on their website they have it mislabeled as Flash Point: Fire Rescue Urban Structures.

So I called another location, and was persistent about them getting it in soon, and I heard others had it. The guy checked their backstock area and they have it! They just hadn't put it out on the shelf yet since it wasn't the published date. But since there's not street date, the manager said they could sell it to me.

In hopes this helps get it into other waiting hands sooner, I thought I'd share my story :-D

Re: Has arrived at some Barnes and Nobles
Urban Structures is the expansion.

Are you sure it's mislabeled?

In their system, yes. I walked into the store today and bought it and the receipt says "Flash Point: Fire Rescue Urban Structures" but the box I have is the base game "Flash Point: Fire Rescue".

I thought it odd that the guy on the phone told me they had Urban Structures but not Fire Rescue. (esp. since the in-print expansion copies are all in the IBC guy's garage waiting to be sent out to kickstarter supporters) The mistake in B&N's system makes it all make sense.

Re: Has arrived at some Barnes and Nobles
Do they also have the Resistance Second Edition in stock? (The one with the larger red box?)

Sorry, no idea. I looked and saw at the store I bought Flash Point that they had it out on the shelf (not sure if my call spurred that or not as I didn't look before I called).

But I wasn't looking for The Resistance. So, the fact that I didn't see it means little since I wasn't actually looking that hard.

I've noticed the same from my B&N. Their system said "Urban Structures" but the game on the shelves is the original game (albeit, 2nd Edition with the plastic firefighter figures). Confusing!

Got to play my copy for the first time last night (3rd time ever), and it was worth the hassle to get a hold of sooner. Great work!

They responded to my email about the error on the website, and they've since fixed it! Yay!

Saw it in Rockford, Illinois a few days ago, about 6 copies on the shelf. Today when I went back, there were only two copies. It's moving!
