It was due out some time ago, but still the Enhanced Edition of SotM eludes us. I am checking daily at CSI and B&B, but no word. I can't even pre-order yet.

Anyone know what is holding this up and when it might actually hit the streets?

I've had mine for weeks now. They have it on the publisher's website, and miniature market has it in stock.

It was on the SotM webstore long ago, so I don't imagine it will be too much longer before the retailers have it.

Just a heads up. I've heard from GtG that their stock, though they just received 10,000 copies, isn't expected to last long. Apparently they've gotten some pretty big orders from distributors.

While that _might_ mean that your local retailers and online shops will be able to get copies from distributors for a while, I wouldn't pass up an opportunity to get a copy at a decent price if you want to have it any time soon. By decent price I mean retail price or lower. I don't think anyone needs to be paying a premium.

Wow, 10k copies? I wondered how many it was, that is awesome.

This is one of those fun games that I'll keep around for my kids. I love it, the art the gameplay, and it is timeless enough that I think a new generation will enjoy it. They really made a home run.

Any ideas for those of us in the UK who cannot afford to pay "triple" the cost of the game in postage alone? Can any one say when our shops are going to get this in stock?

Picked one up at Miniature Market. Even though I am 0-2 so far, the game is absolutely worth it. The sheer volume of choices and quality of the cards makes me absolutely certain that this was a fantastic purchase for me.

The only downside (besides nobody else to play with) is that I'm seeing expansions sell out at places like CSI, MM, even Amazon and the GTG home page. And I'm not quite ready to buy them just yet.

Don't worry about it the base set provides so many combinations that they should keep you going for a while.

There are also villan promo cards you can print:
http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/126949/sentinels...
http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/126950/sentinels...

Which adds more difficulty. There are also promo heroes you can print to slightly alter them.

These modifications by themselves make the EE tons of replayability and truly realize if you like the game before getting expansions.

I wouldn't worry about out if print if you are patient, this is a killer game that is making GTG famous. They will print more.

Now, if you aren't the patient type, better order soon...! I saw CSI had all the mini expansions and oversized villain cards for a great price, including Ambuscade, and I jumped all over it.

So Miniature Market is OOS....however:

http://www.amazon.com/Sentinels-Multiverse-Enhanced-Board-Ed...

Hooray! Finally available through Amazon for $31.95...with prime! Looks like it's in stock on July 4th.

Can't believe I held on to that xmas gift card so long. Now to see if the Ghost Stories reprint makes it to Amazon before I buckle under and get the Descent expansion (or Waterdeep Expansion, or Mage Wars, or etc. etc.)

EDIT: Link doesn't seem to work directly (anyone know why?)--either copy and paste, or just go to Amazon and type it in manually...you lazy so-and-so!!

EDIT 2: $13.95-->$31.95 Quite a difference.

Not to pimp for Amazon, but plus shipping, that's at best a total of $33 at CSI...so big A still comes in a buck cheaper (with Prime, of course).

Of course, if you're intending on spending $100, CSI is the deal to beat.

Okay, looks like CSI has most everything in stock, but is missing a few of the individual decks. But I really want Unity and the Scholar. So, if they ever come back into stock, I will get them plus I will get Shattered Timelines and the Oversized villain pack. Those things seem like the things I need most in my life. Unless someone thinks otherwise?

Unity and the Scholar are great additions, and you'll eventually want them, but the base set plus all expansions through Shattered Timelines will give you more than enough for now. And yes (1) you'll want Shattered Timelines - easily my favorite expansion to date, and (2) the oversized villain cards are fantastic especially considering the reasonable price.

Chris's response needs like 40 up votes. Shattered timelines is so good, and the oversized villain cards are just PERFECT thematically!!!!
