gonna have to get me a store demo of this. Uh, strickly for demoing sakes to get more sales. Yeah it is not because I really really want to play it. How about that demo copy?

Still waiting on that demo copy of Battleship Galaxies also.

Actually seriously if you do demo's the same way as FFG or other such companies do I will purchase both of them.

No, this is something a lot of companies do for promotional reasons. The Dice Tower gets free games all the time for them to review. Some companies send games to stores for demo purposes for the cost of shipping only or for extremely discounted rates. People are much more likely to buy a game they have tried out first and learned the rules to than one that just has a nice looking box. It's the same reason grocery stores give out free samples of many products each day. Same reason I sell store T-shirts for less than it costs me to have them made. It is advertising and a huge part of retail business.

None of my complaints again WOTC had anything to do with this type of thing. I had just suggested something they could do to make up for the poor service they had given. They had the option, and seem to have decided, to do nothing. Which companies games am I more likely to carry and promote? Ones that work with small stores like FFG or those that don't?

You just made the list, buddy.

edit:
Can I expect this game to play well with 2? GB (or whomever) please say 'yes,' so I don't have to worry.

Thanks!

Yes, that's my main concern as well.

That's a slick looking rulebook, the designer is really good, probably deserves a raise even. :p

Looks like its going to be a fun game, hope its a big hit. I can't wait to get my hands on the figures to paint.

Looks awesome! Can't wait to play it!

This typo jumped out at me though and I hope it isn't too late to correct:

Optional Rule: Beg for Your Life
The rules allow heroes defeated before the endgame to keeping playing.

That should be keep.

It isn't to late to fix. Thanks. I swear we look at this stuff before we put it up. :P

The rule book has me even more excited. It looks like some great game mechanics. I wouldn't be surprised if this game takes the place of Descent for me. I'm sure I will be pre-ordering from you for store inventory as well as maybe a copy for the store itself. I am going to need to order more Summoner wars as well. The things I ordered last time has mostly all sold, plus I know people are going to want the boxed set and the new reinforcement packs next month.

Will it be available for Demo at Origins and/or Gencon? Better yet maybe for sale pre-release or even the the Heroscape or Summoner wars champion can get one. Everyone can wish, can they.
