So Mark & Pete, where are those alternate rules so I don't have to flick things (I'd like to have a slight chance of winning) ?

Seriously? You bought the wrong game.

At one point such rules existed, but that was years ago, and they were not fun.

Yep, I know, never played dexterity/flicking games before (OK, once I think) and I'm sure I'm going to be crap but I just bowed to the site hype :-))

Pete/Mark - online shops in the UK seem to have received a new batch of stock this week (my usual emailed me yesterday), has there been a new print run done or is this just the distributor spreading excess stock around the world ?

This is a good introduction. A lot of your shots are close range and straightforward so it has a good mix of very makeable gimmes and difficult bank shots.

Speaking of death cults, I'd like to see a future scenario where you move through the apocalypse bunkers of dot com millionaires , trying to fight your way to the rocket ship that's leaving for Mars as the world collapses.

Cranberries, you really need to look up a video of the last level of Hitman 2.

Well, Mark just got his big royalty check for 2018 through November (protip: less than $200), so maybe it was a sleeper Christmas hit? :D

I'm in a holding pattern on all my game purchases at the moment.  I liquidated a lot of titles, so I will be getting everything through a "local" game store, about 50 mile round trip.  Battlestar Galactica: Starships of Glory came in in no time at all, and I expected Seal Team Flix to do the same. 

My FDGS is telling me Alliance is reporting Seal Team Flix out of stock, but Alliance can be really dodgy at times, magically having games come back into stock because they decide your particular store is worthy of their attention this week.  So STF may suddenly appear on any given Thursday.

My other two are Talon 1000 and SpaceCorp, both of which are filling preorders now and likely will appear in early January, likely around the same time.  The store is going through Alliance for these titles too, instead of ordering directly from GMT.  Don't know why, they could certainly find six games to fill the order to qualify for the cheap shipping.  I'm concerned they don't consider such things.

So here's hoping that a copy of Seal Team Flix shakes free around the same time as the GMT titles and I'll only need one trip.  Hopefully this will happen while I still have my rental car (hit a deer) as it gets more than double the MPG as my van.

Side note -- "STF" for some reason translates to Stiff Little Fingers when I see it, in spite of it not even being the same letters.  I'd recommend you use the full name all the time, as "STF" will be a mystery to anyone who doesn't know exactly what you're talking about.  Seal Team Flix is worth a lookup, and they'll actually find it in short order.
