The retailers below participated in our special pre-order for the Moor Visitors Expansion. Some of them may still have Moor Visitors in stock; if not, we’re making more for release in the fall.

Why We’re Running a Pre-Order Through Retailers

Instead of pre-ordering directly from Stonemaier Games, please pre-order from one of the retailers in the list below. If your region isn’t covered by one of the following retailers, please ask a retailer in your area to carry the Moor Visitors Expansion.

We contacted hundreds of retailers to participate, and these are the retailers who responded. It’s not exclusive–we’d love to have more retailers participate! They can contact Jamey at stonemaiergames@gmail.com.

  • LOCAL: If you buy from one of the many friendly local game stores on our pre-order list, you won’t have to pay shipping fees, as you can just pick up the expansion from the store in early April.
  • ONLINE: If you pre-order from an online store, you can consolidate your Moor Visitors pre-order with other games–everything will be shipped from that retailer to you in mid-April (so by default, the shipping is region-friendly).

  1. Awesome – would be cool if there was an expansion in Agricola with a nod to viticulture and have some vines harvesting, even if it was just a special edition where the crop type got changed.

    Also i notice your UK local store list is pretty small, how would my FLGS get onto this?

  2. Chris: Thanks, I’ve contacted Funagain so they can make their link go live. As for those game shops, if you’d like them to participate, I’d recommend that you reach out to them and put them in touch with me (stonemaiergames@gmail.com).

    Chris: That would be really cool. :) As for UK local list, we invited a ton of retailers, but these are the retailers that chose to participate. If you want a specific local retailer to participate, you can share with them what we’re doing here and ask them to contact me at stonemaiergames@gmail.com.

  3. Hello Jamey! I’m so excited about this! We are 3 games in of viticulture with my gaming group, next winner will pick the first expansion of tuscany to play with (can’t wait for this to happen!).

    My 2 questions regarding this are:
    1) Can we mix up this cards with the standard viticulture game right away? I think more cards would add so much more diversity since we always play 6 player games.
    2) In your list there is no retailer for Italy, I called my 2 local stores and none of them knows about this (I know it’s insane). So do I really need to buy it from spain or there is any way to buy it directly from you?

    Thank you very much! Huge fan of your games! (waiting very excited for euphoria expansion too)

  4. Thanks Gonzalo! Yes, you can mix the cards into any version of Viticulture right away.

    You can’t pre-order directly from us, but I’d love to add an Italian retailer to this list. I contacted 4 of them and none responded.

  5. Italians = good wine makers but lazy workers! :P

    Jokes aside, I will wait for a couple of days to see if it pops up on my fav sites. I sent a facebook message to one already. If no one adds it, then I will buy it from you.

    Thanks for the fast reply!

  6. Thanks! I doubt it’ll pop up unless they hear from you. I’d love to add more retailers to this list, but only a fraction of the retailers I contacted decided to participate. If they hear from paying customers, though, that could definitely change their minds. :)

  7. Hi Jamey,
    great news – I love to play Viticulture and will surely order :-)
    BTW: what happened to the plans for a localized version of V./T. for the german market? Please excuse, if I did miss lines about in your newsletter.

  8. Hartmut: That’s a good question. Feuerland will be releasing a German version of Viticulture Essential in March/April (and Moor Visitors at some point–I’m not sure if it’s on the same schedule as Viticulture).

  9. I wish either Poromagia or lautapelit.fi decided to start distributing Stonemaier Games products in Finland. I guess the market is small but still, one can always hope (and send messages to both companies). Fantasiapelit has some SM games but availability is bad. They will only order from supplier if needed and they add at least 10-20% premium on top of RRP for board games. Euphoria for example is a sweet 84 euros (without shipping) through them. That’s why I prefer the other two companies.

    On that note, Board Game Extras seem to have pretty low shipping for Moor Visitors throughout Europe.

  10. They are all retailers for board games (ie. I buy most of my games from them) but especially Lautapelit.fi is doing other board gaming related things as well like publishing (Eclipse, M.U.L.E., etc.) and localization. So they are all about board games while Fantasiapelit and Poromagia sell a lot of non-board gaming related stuff as well. But all three are mainly retailers as far as I know.

  11. No, Scythe won’t be released until this summer, but Moor Visitors will be released in a few weeks. Also, you bought Scythe from us, but this pre-order is through retailers–two completely different systems.

  12. Hello! The box seems pretty big for a pack of 40 small cards. Is there some sort of surprise in there that you haven’t told us about just yet? Thanks!

  13. Thank goodness for online retailers, I’m surprised that Cool Stuff Inc wasn’t in the listing for Florida. Ordered from Cardhaus!

  14. Jamey, have to compliment the understated way in which you do and announce things. Clearly this took a not insignificant amount of work and coordination. Nevertheless, not only did you keep it a secret but when you finally announced it you did so in a “So, here’s something neat” conversational kind of way. Not quite sure why that works so well for me but it does, and I’m guessing it does for other people too. Way to go doing great things and not needing to excessively toot your own horn about them. It’s a great way to be and to do business.

  15. Are the copies being sold by European online vendors in English? Wouldn’t be a problem to order from Miniature Market if not, shipping would just take longer.

  16. I just emailed coolstuff asking them if they had any plans to get involved, I have a partial order sitting there just waiting to get big enough for free shipping so *fingers crossed*

  17. I’m excited to get my hands on this, but not in a big hurry. Is this limited in any way, or is there any advantage to preordering? Is it realistic to expect to be able to buy it at GenCon?

  18. Donald: That’s a good question. I think the main advantage to pre-ordering is that the future is uncertain. Right now I really have no idea how many copies we’ll sell this week or next month, or whether we’ll have some for Gen Con or if we’ll do another printing. If we sell out and there’s demand for more (moor?), we’ll certainly make them at some point! :)

  19. Hi Jamey. I am a bit surprised at the local Aussie retailer – I’ve never heard of them and we do have some larger online stores here (not many brick and mortar here in Australia). Did you approach stores or did they come to you? Second question are you willing to allow other stores to join the party or did you do some exclusives? Thanks!! Looks like a great expansion :)

  20. I contacted the 250 stores on my list last week, and a bunch of stores also contacted me yesterday to be added to the list (including the local Aussie retailer). The list isn’t exclusive at all–see note at the top. Any store can contact me to learn how to do the pre-order, and I’ll add them to the list. :)

  21. Awesome stuff! Was a delight to back the project on kickstarter, my dad still uses the glasses all the damn time, and the game’s great to play too. Happy to get some fresh cards and look forward to mixing them in!

  22. Hello, i am from Chile. I own Viticulture and Tuscany (also Euphoria and BTC). I would love to have this expansion since i love agricola and love viticulture. Yet the market here is small i don’t think retail stores would care about getting it. What are my possibilities?

  23. Antonia: That’s a good question. As you can see, there aren’t any stores in Chile or South America that have joined this pre-order. My suggestion would be to try a few of the online stores in the US to see if they’ll ship down there. If that doesn’t work out, we will accept regular orders in April if we have any remaining copies, so we would be able to ship a copy to you then.

  24. I noticed on BGG you said that the cards will be shipped out next week after arriving this week to St. Louis – does that mean the retailers could make it available prior to April 8?

  25. They’ll be shipped out to a fulfillment company that will then send the orders to retailers. Whenever retailers receive their games (which could be a few days before April 8), they will ship them to the people who pre-ordered from them. Do you need your copy by a certain date?

  26. No – I have a number of items in my order (its a big order with several games) and the order will not be shipped until Moor arrives. I was hoping to get the whole order sooner than April 8.

  27. Just contacted a local store and was told the initial pre-order was already filled up. What a TERRIBLE distribution model. For as wonderfully as things are normally done by Stonemaier games this is a rare fail imo. Unless there as a miscommunication and they meant the preorder window was closed… but they mentioned they had already ordered the maximum amount they could.

  28. Patrick: Yes, it’s a miscommunication. There was no maximum for any of the pre-orders. Just like any other product you would order from a local store, they will soon be able to order copies from distributors to serve you. You just missed out on the pre-order window (which ended weeks ago–it was your responsibility to order during that time)–it’s the same thing as if you missed out on a Kickstarter. I think you have a pretty big misunderstanding of how this system works, and I’m disappointed that you passed judgment on your local store and Stonemaier based on that lack of understanding.

  29. Your response is a bit harsh considering I said things are normally wonderfully handled by you and your company. And I did specify that it could have been a miscommunication. It’s not like I said any blanket negative statements. And I was merely commenting on information presented to me. No dates were mentioned in my communication with the store or on the email I was going off of. It makes sense that there was a cutoff. I just didn’t know when it was.
    That being said if it hits normal distribution (which I did not know one way or the other if it would) I can get if from my normal FLGS.

    1. Considering this is the first time you have used a model like this? No. I don’t.
      A blanket negative statement is “This company makes terrible games”. The only blanket statements I made were positive ones.
      To my knowledge for new games and expansions and even 2nd editions previous to this have all used Kickstarter. So now I don’t view that as a blanket statement. It was about this model used for this thing. And that was only being said given the strange information given to me by one of my FLGS (limited quantity of pre-order, implied but uncertain second wave of items, not flat out told i missed the window(which upon re-reading the email I do see a date range now. That was my fault)).
      Given the updated knowledge I now have at my fingertips I would merely say that I don’t like this method because it’s not available directly from you (through KS or your website) and my preferred FLGS can’t order it from distribution at the same time other stores (including online stores (which in my opinion hurt the industry more than help it… but that’s a discussion for another day)) can get it. It’s a logistics problem for that store but in most cases if he can’t order from a distributor he can’t get the game.

  30. It seems that there are many problems with the Moor Visitors Expansion. My shop (Board Game Extras) told me, that they could not send me my prepaid copy, because you are not able to send them the games. March is already nearly over now. Is there a possibility to get this cards in the next few weeks. It would be very helpful if you don’t fix dates that are not realistic.

    1. Jürgen: I have a few corrections to your comment:

      1. “You are not able to send them the games.” The truth is that the games are on their way to the retailer. They are currently at customs in France. Your retailer will have them in about a week.

      2. “March is nearly over now.” That is correct. The dates on this page indicate that delivery will happen in April.

      3. “It would be very helpful if you don’t fix dates that are not realistic.” The original date for delivery was mid-March, which at the time was accurate. But then the freight shipment was delayed by 10 days, and then I learned that the warehouse receiving our games would not be able to send the games to retailers in a timely manner. So we had those games sent to fulfillment centers to then be sent to retailers, a process that added some time. I’m sorry for the delay, but a delay from mid-March to early April really isn’t that bad, is it?

      I normally add an extra month or two to my delivery estimates, but that’s usually because pre-orders happen before production even begins. In this case the games were already on the ocean on the way to St. Louis. I had no indication at the time that there were going to be any delays.

      1. Hi Jamey,
        My Moor Visitors have arrived today and I am very happy that the cards fit perfectly in size and color with my Complete Collector’s Edition of Viticulture an Tuscany – after all this frightening last comments.
        So I still love the best game of the world as before. Thank You very much.
        Jürgen

  31. Klaus: The vanity pledge was for the first edition of Viticulture. This is the Moor Visitors expansion, a completely different thing. If the backer who paid $59 over three years ago whose name has appeared on 15,000+ cards feels differently, he’s welcome to talk to me about it.

  32. Hello Jamey,

    Any news on the return of the Australian shipment? I heard there were problems, but wouldn’t mind a new ‘rough estimate’ on arrival time.

    Thankyou. Great game.

    1. Dassie: Yes, I’m sorry it’s taking so long. It was sent to Australia but rejected by customs due to a typo. It arrived at Good Games early last week, and then should send it to retailers tomorrow.

  33. Hi Jamey, I just got my copy of the expansion, and had a question about 2 of the summer visitor cards, Grand Sponsor and Hotelier. How is the ‘at end of game’ bit played, if the card was played and in the discard pile? Does it only apply if you haven’t played it and it’s still in your hand at the end of the game? Or do you hold onto it after playing it? Thanks!

    1. Buffy: Thanks for your question. For those particular cards, you don’t discard them after playing them. Just keep them near your vineyard mat (they don’t count towards your hand size).
