Based on a friend’s recommendation for a good family game, I’m going to pre-order this next printing. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten a board game through an online merchant. So my question to you is who gives me the best bang for my buck as a pre-order? What online companies are the better and more competitive ones today?

Also, is there anything else that I should be getting than the base game?

Thanks in advance!

Story moments reading. Lost chapter. Maybee some extra dice? Depends on how large a group will be playing or how much you mind or not passing the dice around?

The PHG offers the two promotional cards, but is never offered at a discount.

The new batch of MIce & Mystics should be arriving any day now and will be in stock at all major online retailers and brick & mortar stores.

Are the dice available only at the manufacturer? Also, and pardon my lack of knowledge, what are story moments and lost chapter?

currently, the dice are only available through PHG, and they're sold out.

Story moments are parts of the game where players are directed to read a little bit if fiction that drives the story. Rich Sommer has recorded the entirety of the story moments that On my way! With the game. You can download ths recording from PHG for a small fee that is a charitable notation to the Jack Vassal fund.

Lost Chapters are additional scenarios available to download from PHG in PDF form. They allow us to explore side stories not told in the main story.

You have to shop around and bear in mind the shipping costs as well.

Since it doesn't look like anyone has answered your main question (which online store to use), I'll take a crack. I recommend you check-out the following:

Coolstuffinc.com
thoughthammer.com
boardsandbits.com

They all have good prices and excellent service.

HA! Mike beat me to it! I would get the aforementioned extras at some point, but what you REALLY want is the base game. Mike picked my favorite on-line places and even put them in the same order I would.

Cool Stuff Inc. has become my favorite over the past several years. A box they shipped was lost in transit. They replaced it immediately after hearing from me that it had not arrived. Orders qualify for free shipping at a very reasonable amount and the selection is fantastic. Try them first!

Have fun with the game!

Does PHG ever offer any promo codes such as free shipping or a discount off the original price?

I would add
www.timewellspentgames.com

If the game is not available you can submit your email address to be notified when it comes in.

PHG does offer occasional discounts, but not in a manner that would compete with retailers. Retailers will usually have better deals.

Although the preorder was more than right in line with retailers considering PHG offered the promos as well. PHG seems to be doing more "get it a month early" versus discounts for preorders.

I am fine paying at the PHG site so I can get the promos but I am afraid by the time i save enough to purchase the game from PHG that the promos will not be given with the game any longer.

Colby has already stated that if something runs out they just make more. Since people buying the game will by default not have the promos, it is easy to just make as many promos as they have games.
