Pre-order at lautapelit.fi has started.

Estimated to arrive by the end of November.

Will include Eclipse: Pulsar mini expansion.

^Side question: this might have been discussed on some other topic (in which case I've missed it) but is there any information concerning the mentioned mini expansion?

Anyway...

The countdown is about to begin

It says the price is 42.

Dollars?

Or funny money?

Euro (you get that if you click "Buy now").
So approx. $52.

A question concerning the preorder - will it probably be available at Essen fair? I know that dates are approximations up to know, but being able to purchase it there would possibly mean saving money on shipping...

Does "pulsar" = "supernova"? Or is there a second mini expansion for me to obsess over?

Even though I feel the answer is going to be a no, I really wonder if they'll print enough of this mini-expansion for all the pre-orders going out, regardless of where anyone purchases it.

I mean otherwise, it's going to be another Eclipse:Supernova Sellout again.


I also wonder what the Pulsar expansion adds

Giving the different name and the meaning of the phenomenon, they are two different mini expansions.

I do like the detail that pulsar is actually a neutron star created in the supernova explosion, thus giving the mini expansions a real astronomical order.

It is different. Playtesters for Rise of the Ancients also playtested Pulsar expansion. It is different from Supernova.

I have a feeling when my FLGS gets this in they'll sell out quick.

I hope obtaining the Pulsar mini expansion isn't the same debacle as it was for the Supernova mini expansion.

Coolstuffinc.com has this on pre-order...for much less than 42 euros. whistle

http://www.coolstuffinc.com/p/Board%20Games/Eclipse%3A+Rise+...:%20Rise%20of%20the%20Ancients%20Expansion

Shipping brings it up to around $45 (still less than $52) and if you buy more than $100, you get free shipping...so I'm not convinced we have a reason to cry. I'd still like to support the publisher by buying directly from them...but only if the price-point close. ninja

Why not just pre-order from the myriad of US online retailers?

It is remarkable that, were it not for customs prices, preordering from the US seller coolstuffinc would be CHEAPER in Germany - even including shipping. And including customs, it's about the same...
...
...from the US to Germany...
...
...when it had to be sent there in the first place...
...
...with about $22 of shipping cost...
...

And if we wait for our local internet sellers, they will probably only have a few in stock that will sell out quickly, and will possibly not even include the Pulsar expansion...

I mean, COME ON...

Will every preorder of the expansion have Pulsar or only if you order from that specific place?

If I can get my copy in Essen, I'll throw money at you as soon as that's confirmed.
If not, I'll wait a few months while I can buy it in my hungarian FLGS

We'll have to get that fixed, it's not supposed to do that.
But, you're right, no HK shipping, only the EU countries.

Hi, I'm not trying to be a smart-aleck, but why don't you ship to, say, Serbia? It's not EU but it's Europe. I mean we're surrounded by EU countries on all sides, so I'm curious what's preventing you from shipping to Serbia?

Thanks

Taxes - that's why they can't ship to for example Switzerland either. Shipping outside EU would complicate the taxation a lot, and their web shop just can't handle it. So far there has been very little reason for it to handle outside EU sales...

Thanks for your quick reply. It's a pity the EU's doing its utmost to discriminate non-EU countries by introducing such restrictive and discouraging regulations. Oh, well. I suppose I'll just have to rely on my network of friends again to get the product.

Sorry, but I cannot help feeling a bit ... you know...
