Default Hard to find?

Anyone else having trouble finding a store that has it? I live far out east on Long Island and the couple of stores I know around me don't have it. I wasn't really surprised by that. But I went to Modern Myths in Mamaroneck and it's a pretty nice game store and they didn't have it. Anyone found it in the New York area? I would bet Compleat Strategist has it but I rarely go into the city. I'll probably end up ordering it from W23.

We are getting reports of stores not carrying the game because they think thereís no demand in their area. Please make sure to let your stores know if you want to play the game at their store.

Heh. They definitely won't sell any of they don't stock it :/

Yes, if you go to a store looking for something and don't find it, make sure you tell the store owner!

Has anyone in Europe got a copy of this game yet? My local shop ordered a copy of each base set for me, but so far they haven't received any copies from their suppliers.

This is, unfortunately, exceedingly common with mid-level and/or fly by night game stores. They only stock the games [Magic / warhammer] that they already have a player base for and have no interest in trying to build a player base for new games (and thus, acquire new customers).

most stores like this last about 2-3 years and then die as their initial inventory of non-magic stuff slowly dwindles and is not replaced, resulting in people stopping showing up to browse, etc. There is also a trend my wife and I have noticed of a lot of game stores opening because the owner wants to sit around and play games, and not because they have the chops for business.

Let's not continue down the "bash the game stores" tangent. Thanks.

Iíve found a few store by me that have it. One already sold out of its boosters. And I think the other is close to selling out too. I donít personally need that much more since I bought a booster box but I do worry about it stunting the initial growth by me if I one can buy it. Especially
Since it isnít continuously printed product.

The best thing you can do at this stage to support the game: Ask your friends to go to the local store and try to buy the game. The more times a retailer gets requests for the game, the more likely they are to stock deeper and run events.

If your store needs any support, please ask them to contact retailers@sjgames.com and we'll see how we can help out.

Snip

Pro tip. Contact the store's management multiple times, but each time, wear some sort of hat or elaborate fake mustache so he doesn't know it's you every time.
