I figured this topic is better here then on WotC's site as some people there just don't want GenCon discussed so early... anywho:

With the next set release date happening right in time for GenCon, I was wondering what the best way to secure cases might be. I have two options running through my mind.

1) Order online (not through certain vendors!!!) and have them ship the product to the hotel I am staying at.
2) Call some LGS's in Indy and explain the situation way before GenCon, prepay over the phone and pick up the cases release day in the LGS.

1's pros:
Less hassle for me, if all goes right.
Cheaper

2's pros:
More likely that the cases will be there on that day

1's cons:
If it is more then 3 days late, it should be fun trying to get the package

2's cons:
I am missing out of prime gaming time trying to pick up the cases finding a store somewhere in/near Indy.

Order online and get rush shipping, Flawless. Just my opinion.

I thought the latest news showed KOTOR releasing the week prior to GenCon? If you order early enough, and from a reliable source, you ought to get your cases before you have to leave for Indianapolis. Of course, that depends on how early you will be leaving for Indy.

I would would suggest that you look at The Game Preserve if you are wanting a LGS. They have a couple stores in/near Indy.

A little off topic, but when is GenCon? Isn't it in May?

True enough, if the release is a week before, then I will just get them locally, however, if it slated for the week of GenCon, then I will have to figure something out.

I saw the WOTC summer catalog last night with the release date of Aug. 8th, which I believe is a normal Friday release date. If things go as ususal, release tournaments will go off on that Saturday or Sunday. If you usually buy your product locally, you will have your product on the 8th. If you order online, it may be early the week of GenCon, which is tight.

In my case, I ususally buy two/three cases from my LGS and then start frantically trading. This time I might hang on from doing alot of trading and try to complete my set at GenCon. Hey, at least I would not have to send first!!

? You must have missed the 'not another GenCon thread' comments. Regardless, if the release date stays like it is, this is a non issue.

Oh. I usually ignore snide comments from people like that. Besides, that could have just as easily happened here...
