I'm holding off on any definitive decision for
now. What I wonder is, did the alert to this Rabbit list hit TRU with a
large volume of orders for a game that had not moved at all in some time (hence
the $5 sale in the first place).
If some of us that were slower in taking up the
offer missed out, but the early birds got the worm, so be it. If noone is
getting their ordered EAC, then this is something else entirely - though it
appears that this is not the case. It appears that TRU had no
problem filling my request for the two other $5 games I ordered. It's just
a shame that it is the LL game that I'm missing out on. I suppose I'll
have to pick it up at full retail at my FLGS..... *grin*
I would be interested to know if a "raincheck law"
applies but, having worked in retail for many years in a past life, my guess is
that none does.

verbal here because this is the only toy/game company who lends its owners'
ears to their customers, and thus it seems better to discuss here, rather than
