Pre-Ordering



  • For those of you that pre-ordered, I was hpoing you could provide from where you did it and how much. I have not done so and am of course looking to purchase at as a reasonable price that I can.

    you can get AA50 from for $69.00 and if your order goes more than $100 bucks shipping is free. So perhaps find a buddy who will buy the game and split it out.

    sites called coolstuffInc.com or something. look at BGG for its entry by me.

    I will only buy the game when a module is created for ABattlemap to support it and the rules have been scanned in as PDFs.

    I find the entire process of digging the box out, setting it up, and putting it all away again afterwards to be such a kill-joy of playing it.  Lately, my buddies and I, have been using a Tablet PC with Battlemap and just sending the computer around the table.  Added benefit:  You can look at the board from sitting on the south side no matter where you are on the table!

    No.  Notice I said I would only BUY the game when a module was created for Battlemap to support it and the rules have been scanned as PDFs.  If the module is not created and the rules scanned, then I will neither buy the game nor play the game. 😛

    oh come on now. You got to support the game. If people thought like that it would be the bitter end of these games. Please don’t force me to buy an 8th copy. Its only $69 bucks

    I will buy one when it is supported by battlemap. 😛

    I didn’t buy a revised version of the game until I got the module for Battlemap and now I’ve had one for at least a few years.  Still in it’s original shrink wrap from the manufacturer!  Heck, I don’t even know what the pieces in the box look like!!!

    Woman…open the game and play with your family immediately. How can this be so that you play a game hundreds of times and have never seen the game and have no idea what it looks like. This is too much of a burden for my ears to hear. 😮

    I know what the game looks like.  I have a map of it in Battlemap and a copy of the rules in PDF.  Why should I open the box?  The pieces in classic were all artistic (btw I have a copy of that game in it’s original factory shrink-wrap too as well as Pacific and Europe) but honestly, there is no reason what-so-ever to open the box. ^_^

    There’s a reason to BUY the box.  It would not be legal to play the game if you didn’t own at least one box of the game. (I have 4 classic boxes one of which is unopened.)



  • Well, that’s when you send A&A to those who are in dire need of it and want to play it. Help spread A&A throughout the world as an AWESOME game, Cmdr Jennifer!!!

  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    I can imagine starving kids in Africa getting the game rather than a bowl of food. Terrible moment.

    +1 Karma to you, Jennifer!



  • I bought mine from coolstuffinc.com also.  Like IL said if you spend over $100 shipping is free so I also bought A&A Pacific.

    LT



  • So one more question. If you prepurchase it from the places mentioned, will it ARRIVE on the 23rd, or ship on the 23rd. I really want to have it the day it comes out but of course pay  the lowest price I can.

    It won’t ship until the 23rd.

    Does anyone have any idea what stores will carry the game (WalMart, Toys 'R Us, Target, etc) and at what price?  I wonder if these prices would be close to the $69.00 online?  Like Jaybird, I would like to HAVE the game on the 23rd.
    Thanks.



  • Preordered mine at CCG Armory. $69.00.

    I wonder if there is a possibility of anyone releasing the game before the 23rd?


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    no zero chance



  • Hey, if you want AA50 for the lowest price I see gamefest.com has coolstuffinc.com beat. They have it for $69.95 and only $77.95 including shipping. Coolstuffinc.com at the cheapest you can get it at $82.55 with shipping. But, if you have a friend to buy 2 copies at once from coolstuffinc.com you get the free shipping so then it would be cheaper.


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    yes find a friend… key point. If you guy the game you must be playing it with somebody.



  • I have several friends that play, but I am the only one that buys! So I went with the gamefest.com cheaper price.



  • Question….I pre-ordred from coolstuff and they didnt change the date from 23 october  to 18 november. I checked for other place and they all changed it.

    So with the questioneer post on harry larrys forum that say that maybe you can have it if you pre-ordered it, Is there some one who did the same and bought the game in pre-order from coolstuff and have ask them if we will have our game in time? with some luck! 😛


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    yes thats good news. I got 6 on pre-order.
