There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

EDIT Sept 2013: Please do not geekmail me asking me to buy this and ship it to you! I have moved out of state.

I've seen a lot of posts lately about people not able to find the expansion packs. So thought I'd post this. My local game store has 2 copies of the Essential Collection on their shelf (6-pack of expansions:
http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite.asp?eidm=23).

They are
http://megagamingandcomics.com/

MSRP which is $30 I believe, which was an awesome deal for this even when they weren't OOP, as buying each individually would have totaled at least $60 if not $70 MSRP. No idea if they ship but I'm sure if you offer enough for extra handling there'd be a point where they'd be willing, at least domestically.

Heads up that, while they've always been friendly to me, their customer service doesn't have the best reputation, and my attempts at special-ordering (giving them a game name and my phone number) has not worked more often than it has worked. But, seeing as how scarce these are now, thought I'd post this anyhow! Buying things they actually have in stock has never been a problem for me.

I just called them. The guy went over to the section and all he saw was Sands of Al-Kalim. cry

If you are ever in the store again and wouldn't mind nabbing it, I'd paypal the cost+shipping+finder's fee.

Call them again and tell them it's not on the walls with the boardgames (where all the stand-alone games and big box expansions are).
It's under the display counter where all the small expansions are and small card games like Munchkin and Fluxx etc...
(told you they're not too with it )

Thanks. He did find it, but said they really couldn't ship it. I offered an incentive and they weren't interested.

It was worth a shot.
