If this game is supposed to be out next month I would think it would be available for pre-order now. However I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone have any knowledge about its being available for pre-order?

It is available to pre-order. If your local game or hobby store won't be carrying the game, you can order it direct from the Gale Force Nine online store http://www.flamesofwar.com/gf9online_store.aspx?categoryid=1... (But tell your local game store to carry the game! laugh)

This is the USD link, if you are not ordering in the US, the little flag in the yellow bar will convert the game to the Euro, GB Pound, Aus Dollar or NZ Dollar.

Thanks for your interest!

Thanks for the reply. I called coolstuffinc and asked when they would have it available to order. They said they were waiting for more availability information. Anyway, I just went ahead and ordered it from the link you provided.

I also pre-ordered from the link you provided.


UPDATE: The email confirmation for my pre-order says that it is "Currently Packed."

And if this is true of ordering online, will it also be true of ordering from our local retailers?

I just ordered it, too. Hard to beat $5 US shipping. Any idea how soon these will ship out to those of us preordering directly from the link?

Mine too but I have no idea what it could mean at that company. So I'm tempering my excitement until I get a shipping email.

Mine too. Perhaps Gale Force Nine can give us the low down...

Sorry, that confirmation e-mail is a little confusing because the Battlefront / GF9 webstore isn't really set up for pre-orders, only in-stock (or out-of-stock) items.

What you should be getting is an email when the order is downloaded into the Battlefront system as a confirmation. In that email are the words “Currently Packed” indicating the quantity packed at that time, which will be zero.

So there should be a column “Ordered” which will be 1, and a column “Currently Packed” which will be zero, since no games are in stock yet.

The games are "on the water" and enroute to Battlefront's / GF9's distribution hubs in the US, UK and NZ.

The web team is going to fix it so those confusing confirmations are not sent out.

Thanks for the clarification, GF9. I (sadly) figured it would be something like that. Any idea when they'll be shipping from you to preorder customers?

Continental Europe will receive the stuff from the UK? My friends are bombing me with questions about the estimated arrival of our pre-ordered game so a rough guess from GF9 would be very much appreciated. :)

Thanks in advance!

There were many legendary champions in the storied history of the House of Batiatus.

Dolor will be available from Gale Force Nine at show and convention appearances. Whenever you see us at a show, be sure to play a demo of Spartacus: GBAT to add this Gladiator to your ludus.

Another champion will be accompanying games ordered via the Gale Force Nine Online Store. We will reveal the identity of this powerful Gladiator soon.

Excited about the bonus champion for my preorder. But I hope you'll consider having Dolor eventually available through another outlet, like the BGG store

Since you're also encouraging us to order from our FLGS, will we be able to get this bonus gladiator for pre-ordering locally, or only through the GF9 store?

Will this mystery champion only be available through purchases made via the Gale Force Nine Online Store? I'm planning to pick up my copy of the game in Essen, but I was hoping this promo is also available at Spiel.

Thanks!
