I was trying to buy the game but the system don't let me!!!!

It was sold out within seconds of it being made available. I actually had it in my basket and was filling in all the postal forms when I found I couldn't proceed any further - I was too late at 90 seconds after it went live.

No where did they say it was limited thing. They said pre order, which implies you pay for it, then they make you one. I am beyond pissed over this.

This may have spoiled Days of Wonder games for me.

Although I agree that they didn't mention it was "limited" which sucks for those of us who got screwed at the finish line with "unable to ship to" errors. I don't think it has ruined their games for me.

I still have smallworld in all it's forms this was just a holy crap I want it in it's supreme form. With any luck they will make more as its obviously popular. They might have just run out of space for the current order they put in.

I feel your pain.

Sorry to hear that this is ruining DoW games for you! I feel that I have to point out the last paragraph on the most recent news update, however:

Quote:

On June 9, 2015, on 3 pm GMT (8 am PDT) we will open the orders for the Designer Edition of Small World. We anticipate a high amount of orders, and we must remind you that our stocks are limited. So, make sure to place your order as soon as possible on June 9! Please also note that the offer is limited to one copy per person; you cannot order several copies of the Designer Edition.


I added the bold to the text, but it was clearly stated. All through the kickstarter and since then, DoW has been very clear that they made a very limited number of extra DE copies for people who weren't part of the Kickstarter.

Pre order has a specific meaning. It means we collect money, then fill the demand. What they did was sell a limited amount. The wrong words were used. Whether they meant to or not doesn't matter, we were lied to.

They did say they have a tiny amount for sale:

Furthermore, they never stated it was a pre order.

Nowhere in their literature have I seen them use the term "pre-order". The title of their latest press release was:

Quote:

The Small World Designer Edition is available for everybody: order your copy on June 9!


But that just says that you could order your copy on June 9th. No pre-order. Like I said, DoW has been very clear from the very start that there were a limited number of games made for people outside of the Kickstarter backers. That fact has never changed.

Sorry you thought they were taking pre-orders for the DE. That would be a major disappointment!

I have banners/ads disabled on BGG so I can't say I saw what you're talking about. Assuming it did, you're still focusing on what might have been one poor choice of word (I can still see how "preorder" might apply in this case) vs. more detailed comments/descriptions given over the past several months that spelled out they're simply selling off the leftovers from the KS campaign.

Very sorry you and plenty others missed out, but it's time to move on. It's done.

I was slightly tempted to back at the KS level and feel a little twinge of regret, but that was still $300+ dollars I didn't really have to spend for a version of a game I already own and enjoy in its standard version.

Still curious if I could get the coins though. Any left sitting around in your spares stock? Smile
