Cool this game is getting this kind of attention. It's sad to see people saying that the shortages are some marketing plan. 

I wasn't able to receive my preorder, but I'm in on the second printing in April and that's fine by me. It means I don't have to get the replacement card pack to fix the errors. That makes it worth the wait.

It's funny that people would think it's a marketing plan. Jamey wrote a whole article on the reasons the first print run numbers were chosen and talked through the difficulty of guessing it right.

People want to find some sort of dirt or story to make things seem underhanded. I've never taken Jamey for anything but unfront and honest.
