Pre-Orders for Core Worlds: Galactic Orders end this Saturday, so if you haven't got a chance to order yours yet, make your conquest today!

Some compelling pre-order tidbits:

1) Stronghold's pre-order price is 30% lower than the retail price.

2) Stronghold's pre-order includes a free copy of the 7-card promo pack. This promo pack will not otherwise be available until a later date when it will become available for purchase from the BGG Store or Stronghold's website.

3) You will receive the pre-ordered game in early December. The normal street date is not until December 19; a single delay in the pipeline could make it difficult to pick up the game before Christmas.

Here is a link to the pre-order: Galactic Orders Pre-Order Page

The Galactic Monarch demands that you order yours today! robot

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for that. I have an order that's held up because I have had Core Worlds Galactic Orders on pre-order for weeks. Does the date of Dec 19 stand for all shops across the board? I was under the impression that the game would be available right after Spiel so obviously I was wrong.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, $22 shipping to Canada makes this not viable. Would love to pre-order if not for that.

Hi, Jerome.

The December 19 release date is based on the publisher's assessment of when it will receive the full shipment of games, and how long it will take for them to make it through the distribution process. This date might vary slightly in different parts of the world.

A pre-order through an online or other retail venue means that the venue will ship it out to you as soon as they receive it. If things go smoothly, then the game should ship from your retail venue around Dec. 19 (or will be available for pick-up from your retail store on that date).

Thanks,

Andrew

Thanks, but I preordered mine the day you announced it. You don't have to tell me twice...

Hi, Chris. I agree that the shipping to Canada is expensive. If you know anyone else interested in the expansion, you could order multiple copies and have them ship together. I think the shipping for two copies is $27. That would put the total cost for both games just a bit above the retail cost.

I have anticipated the monarch's demands and have already moved to comply

Meanwhile back on earth my wallet curses you for designing such an irresistable addition to an already great game

Thanks, Andrew. The more likely alternative for me would be to have my friend order it to his US shipping address for me. But he doesn't check it very often, and it's a bit of a hassle. Would Stronghold ship to a name other than the credit card holder who paid for the item? If so, I can ask him if he's planning to check his mailbox around Christmastime.

Hi, Chris.

Yes, you can include separate billing and shipping addresses. If you pre-order from Stronghold's website, the game should arrive in early December.

And ... my browser crashed while the PayPal purchase was finishing. It didn't go through, and now in my account there's an unfinished order. It lists my order as one of my purchases, but it's marked as "Incomplete Sale".

Andrew, can I just send my $33.42 to a PayPal address with my order number in the subject line? It's order 2173. My username is the same as here.

Thanks!

Hi, Jonathan.

Please send an email to info@strongholdgames.com to request how to proceed. The publisher manages the pre-orders, but I will ask him to follow up as soon as possible.

You talked me into it. Pre-order complete. After reading your Diary on it, I can hardly wait.

Great, wanted to make sure it would be here by Christmas and I couldn't find ship dates anywhere.

Sorry to disobey the Galactic Monarch, but I went to the Stronghold booth the very first morning of BGGCon and personally hounded Stephen until he had no choice but to take my money sell me CW:GO (and Revolver 2).


shameless plug: if you have Core Worlds, you HAVE to get this expansion.
