That would suck; but, we'll find out soon enough. It could be minor as MS deciding to grow his hair for a cancer relief effort, or something involving the words "post-op", or maybe a baby on the way. There are very few people left in the world who remember what Matthew looked like with long hair. T...

And Alex - thanks for the tip on Time Machine. I was able to get the single copy they got this week held for me. They actually got two and sold them both. Some of the regular gamers had some 'words' with the buyer yesterday evening when they turned up to the game night and discovered the few he got...

Question: Any large US bookstore chains carrying MGT? I recall some past Mongoose stuff (Conan) in at least one large chain I have visited in the past if my memory is correct? Barnes & Noble will indeed be carrying it, and I would expect them to have it available before the end of June. The hobby g...

The gaming club there tends to be very light on RPGs (miniatures and board games being the norm) but if you're ever over there on a Thursday night you'll find a great group of players downstairs (and on sunday the guy I ran through chargen was bugging one of the others to start up a Traveller game.....

Check out the Time Machine in Manchester, CT. They don't do mail orders but you can call in and pick one up.

Its right by where you live in CT, and on Thursday and Sunday nights its where the gaming club goes to play. I was running someone through generating a character on Sunday.

Should I have my store ask someone point blank "are you carrying this?" Absolutely. And if they say yes, ask them when they intend to order it from us. 'Not available' does not mean we won't supply them - it means they won't supply the store. Can my FLGS wholesale directly from you? Yes. In fact we...

Hey, guys. I can assure you we're not deliberately shorting the distributors with our A Call to Arms miniatures. The unhappy fact is that many of the bigger distributors have told us that they simply won't carry the miniatures as stock items, though they 'may' do special orders for stores. The peopl...

Kublacon

For those of you thinking of coming to Kublacon in San Francisco, we'll be there from this Friday. I'm bringing my EFTF in case I can get some games in after the dealer room closes each night.

And if UPS deliver as promised, we'll have some wave 3 models available :D
