Buying from FFG

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

I have eagerly awaited the two Battlelore army packs and now see that they are being shipped. However, apart from the base game, which has been available from Amazon for ages, I have never bought from FFG before. I live in the UK and when buying games directly from GMTs P500 I have found that their games usually take anything from 6 to 8 weeks to reach the retail sector in the UK after my direct purchase has reached me.

 

My question is, can we buy directly from FFG or does the company only sell through retailers. If only through retailers does anyone know how long it will be before the games are available in the UK.

 

Thank you very much for your help and advice.

Dave

Thank you for coming back to me. I did find the store page but wanted to pre order. It looks as if this cannot be done until stock is available for delivery. I shall just keep watching the store page. All the best.

Usually after a month they appear in the UK on the usual sites such as Amazon, boardgameguru, shire games etc.

 

I think buying directly from FFG and importing the game would be cost prohibitive and subject to customs taxes.

Thank you all very much for coming back to me. 

 

You are quite right about the import tax; although, I have bought many game from the USA and sometimes I pay the tax and sometimes not (have no idea why they miss some parcels). I will on this occasion take you advice and wait for a UK retailer to stock them.  

 

All the best

I have found the two army packs for sale through Amazon uk and put my order in 24hours ago and so that's great. What I can't understand is that these expansions are still not available through the FFG web site as far as I can see. Hob can retailers on the uk have them for sale when the American Manufacturer is not yet selling them?

I'm pretty sure, though, that they have reached US distributers, too; on BGG there are many people reporting they've either purchased it from their FLGS or have shipping notices that it's on the way to their house.

 

It is odd that FFG's store doesn't carry these yet (as I have to keep patiently waiting for such!)
