Any word on preorders on the woodland set as mentioned at the start of this thread?

Dear Stefan,

Thank you very much for this news :)

I think this is a great news for us (European customers).

For my part, I'm just waiting now to know the new process.

Thanks again for your understanding.

Soon hope :)

I hope that you can get this sorted too.

I have a really good job (self employed professional) and, like Green Knight, have a healthy "gaming budget" but the price hikes are going to make buying DF not good value for money for me, even though I can afford them as I do not live in the USA.

It is (and continues to be) an outstanding product and I have well over 40 sets but half of these were acquired from the UK many years ago. The (necessary, I understand) price hikes are going to make it unlikely I will buy much more though. If it comes down to a choice of buy 3 new sets of DF or have an entirely new wargaming army or the entire book range for a new RPG.... the DF will lose out as I already have a load.

I suspect your product is relatively "price inelastic" but once veteran gamers who already have some DF decide, en masse, that the opportunity cost (i.e. value for money) of buying a new DF environment is too high then your turnover may slide a lot quite quickly?

Anyway, I don't mean to rant. Top product and I wish you the best no matter what happens European distributor wise?

Now all we gotta do is work on shipping cost down under to Australia.

Pretty please :-)

Well looks like the price increase is here now, it was nice of you to give a heads up, I at least managed to get a couple sets ordered under the wire, which might end up being my last ones.

Too bad the cavern sets were not available because now I really can't afford them.

Good luck with your new pricing strategy, I hope it works out for you.

Given what stuff is going on ebay, the prices may be fairly elastic.. as long as there is no good alternative. Anyone see this den of evil room & passage set starting at $300? No takers yet, so probably won't be over $300 a set any time soon :)

I think that many of the high prices on ebay reflect that it seems like a big chunk of the product is out of stock currently. I haven't gotten to the point of paying ebay prices above what DF is charging, but with so much out of stock, it's tempting.

A "pre-order" offer on out of stock items at pre-price increase prices would have been a nice option. Kind of a "pre-reorder."

I only buy on ebay stuff no longer being made, with the exception of my one crazy auction win of several sets for $160.

A couple-few years ago, there was an ugly rumor going around that DF was actually out of business.

Is it possible that people on e-Bay (bidders) might still be under that erroneous impression, or might come to that false conclusion on their own?

I don't e-Bay myself. Does DF have any kind of presence on e-Bay, like a buy-it-now button and a link to the website? Should they?

They could certainly have an ebay store. Places like Troll & Toad do.
