From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
It started as a fairly ordinary Saturday morning for me, which became stranger as it became apparent that something was up with supplies of Warhammer Quest: Cursed City. Specifically: there aren’t any. Unless you get lucky and find a store no one goes to that somehow managed to get a copy in.
Other than that you are out of luck, and always will be.
But then it gets stranger.
Games Workshop have removed many references to the game from their various websites and social media. The Cursed City website is still active as I type this, but links to the many promotional articles on Warhammer Community are now gone.
The articles are still there (again, as I type this) – for example if you visit my preview article on the Cursed City boards, the link will still take you to the Warhammer Community article, but you can’t get to that article from within the Warhammer Community site any more. How odd.
Here’s Midwinter Minis with a live but reasonable take on the strangeness.
I am confident you can find many less reasonable takes online too.
Games Workshop have sold out of items before, but I don’t recall anything like this. Even when Indomitus sold out they kept their own articles findable on Warhammer Community. This is… very strange.
I have my copy, and there’s an unboxing article scheduled for 24 hours after this post. I had planned more articles, but I’m not sure what the point would be of covering a game no one can buy. You’ll see me assemble and paint the miniatures of course, but I’m not so sure about the game. It would be nice for Games Workshop to clarify the situation as clearly they could sell more copies of they only chose to produce more. Expansions now seem unlikely too.
