    Just a heads up. Not takings sides or telling anyone where they should buy there stuff.

    But- Coolstuffinc.com has the pre-order set up for E40 at $59.99. $100 worth of stuff gets you free shipping. Or, you could support someone else.

    Sounds like a good price.


  • u guys are way too lucky. i have to pay the small price of $150+ in norway. damn our socialist government

    Why is it your government’s fault that it costs so much?


  • If I’m right, Norway is not in the EU (a clever move, BTW we in Spain didn’t have the option to choose  😛 ), so they should keep their national currency … it was crowns? How much is the crisis damaging the norwegians?

    A interesting question is if you call your goverment socialist because socialist party is ruling or because you think that they are doing socialist politics … here in Spain we have a ruling party called “socialist” but is doing the same neoliberal politics that would do the right wing party (the funny -or not- thing is that right wing party is blaming them for doing the same that they would do if were ruling). Stingy two-party sistem and stingy partitocracy  :x

    As for the 150$ boardgame, it’s clearly an abuse (I paid 75 € for my copy of AAP, including mail costs), but it’s tipical of a free-market economy. You can sell at any prize, no wonder how ridiculous or abusive can be (houses anyone?)

    WOW - As someone who works in investments and the finance industry, wow. A free market economy allows anyone to sell at any price they like - but it also allows anyone to buy at whatever price they like. The internet is a perfect example - many, many stores sell Axis & Allies, but coolstuffinc.com has the cheapest price.

    Guess what? I buy from them, and so do a lot of you. We have that choice, due to a free market system. Funcioneta, I’ll gladly send you a college textbook on micro-economics if you desire.

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Haha! If you send the text book, I’ll pay the shipping, totally agree with you bro 😛


  • Aw man, still no boxart

  • Customizer

    hm….

    what the heck to buy WITH the game in order to get up to the free shipping?

    anyone else live in Denver / Boulder, colorado, that would like to purchase it with me?

    we can buy 2, get the free shipping, and then split it up when it arrives…

    Rats, I was going to ask that!

  • '10

    Considering the slim margin between that price and wholesale cost…  Im curious what their shipping charges are?

  • Customizer

    I’m supporting Field Marshal Games all the way!!!  Great prices, cheap shipping costs and a great bunch of guys!

    Can’t go wrong here!

  • TripleA

    i just did a quick check with shipping to my home.

    coolstuff                  has the game for $60 and shipping for $28 and takes 8-14 days
    field marshal games    has the game for $80 and shipping for  $8 and takes  2-6 days

    field marshal games supports the axis and allies community, ships quicker, and is the same cost. this looks like an easy decision between these two.

    however, i am going to support my local game shop as i want to keep them in my city


  • i remember all the pre-order scramble for Pacific and comparing prices and S/H, then like the day after it was released it was on Amazon for $63 and free shipping….  dang…

    And Europe will be the same.

  • Customizer

    Yes, but who out of all the game stores put their money back in to try enhance the Axis and Allies experience and gets involve in the Axis and Allies community?  I can only think of one, Field Marshal Games!  [Combat Dice(Awesome), Ammo box(Wicked), Combat Units(Can’t wait), Dice tray and towers(Sweet).]

    …which is why I said if you want to support someone else… I just wanted to get the info out there so we all know everything there is to know, you know?  😉

    For me, due to shipping, there was a big difference in price. But since it’s not the same for everyone, we can now make informed decisions on it.

  • Customizer

    Very true!

    Thanks for putting the info out there!

    What’s the latest - when is this game supposed to be ready?


  • From the Coolstuffinc website:

    _Description:
    Expected Release: August 24, 2010. Date subject to change.

    With the invasion of the Low Countries and the allied evacuation from Dunkirk, the German army is poised to march on Paris. In Axis & Allies: Europe 1940, France appears for the first time in Axis & Allies as a new, playable ally, while Italy serves as a second Axis power along with Germany. Plus, two new combat units that debuted in Axis & Allies: Pacific 1940, Tactical Bombers and Mechanized Infantry, will resurface, while new rules for neutral nations, naval and air bases, and convoy disruption will add even more depth and historical accuracy to the game. Additionally, this deluxe theater-level game is designed to play together with Axis & Allies: Pacific 1940.

    Category: Strategy Games
    Style: Casual War Game
    Ages: 12 - 99
    Players: 2 - 5
    Play Time: 1.5 - 4.0 Hours_

    Well, if France was a playable ally, it should have read:

    Players: 2 - 6

    But never mind!  🙂

    To me, the only surprising feature about this product description is:

    Play Time: 1.5 - 4.0 Hours

    The thing will take about a half an hour to set up… can’t see getting through the first few games, at least, in this short a timeframe!

    BTW: Who is actually, seriously, going to play Europe '40 on its own anyway (outside of a tournament environment)? I think that almost everyone is just dying to put together the Global '40 and lose a week or two of their lives… I only play Pacific '40 on its own to get used to the new units, strategies, etc… and because I have no choice for the time being!
