It’s not too late to order a Christmas Surprise Package in time for Christmas!

Order via UPS Ground or Priority Mail by December 18 (or sooner) if you live EAST of the Mississippi River and get it by (or before) Christmas Eve, and without expedited shipping costs. UPS Ground delivers in 2-3 business days to the eastern half of the USA (add a day for Palladium to process your order). That means you can order tonight, tomorrow and even THURSDAY night (December 18) via UPS Ground or Priority Mail and still get your Christmas Surprise Package by Christmas Eve (possibly sooner)! That’s barring bad weather, delays/trouble en route, and Palladium being unable to process your Surprise Package quickly and without delay.

If you live east of the Rocky Mountains and order today or tomorrow (Wednesday) via UPS Ground or Priority Mail you should also be able to get your Christmas Surprise Package by Christmas Eve, but I don’t know if we can guarantee it. Everyone else, I’m afraid, will have to choose some sort of expedited service to get it in time for Christmas. If you live outside the USA, we can not guarantee delivery in time for Christmas no matter the method of shipping.

It is Grab Bag/Surprise Package frenzy time! As Christmas gets closer and closer with every passing day, orders for Christmas Surprise Packages are being placed in an increasing number at a steady pace. Awesome. Keep ‘em coming! Reminder, please only put product that is currently in stock (not things like Shadows of Light or the upcoming BTS sourcebooks), don’t ask only for gold editions as the available number is very limited, make sure your address is correct, and give us 10-14 choices whenever possible for EACH Surprise Package. Thanks!

Spent much of Monday picking and signing books for Surprise Packages. I read every one and make the selections. How busy are we? At 4:30 PM on Monday I realized I had yet to take my coat off! Yikes. Jeff had a good laugh about that. We all spent a lot of time in the warehouse. :)

I hope all of you are getting in the holiday spirit. I think that stores and TV promotions advertising Christmas starting in freakin’ September and really kicking in hard by mid-October creates a bit of “Christmas fatigue.” I’ve noticed a lot people, myself included, are waiting till the last couple weeks before the holiday to make purchases and are suddenly surprised to realize Christmas is only 13 days away! Good luck with your shopping and thank you for making Palladium Books a shopping destination. I wish we had more new product available, but we just couldn’t swing it. The Rifter® #68 is finally available (should arrive Friday or Monday), Robotech® RPG Tactics™ (to customers in the USA and Canada) is also available, and of course, the super-deal that is the Christmas Surprise Package. The latter being especially ideal for newcomers, gamers looking to try a new game setting and those of you looking to fill in holes in your collection. Stay frosty when doing your shopping and game on!

Robotech RPG Tactics

Robotech® RPG Tactics – Coming Soon

If you’re a Robotech® fan, this is the game you’ve wanted for decades, with beautifully sculpted, in scale, game pieces and the fast action of Robotech®.

Robotech® RPG Tactics™ is a fast-paced, tabletop combat game that captures the action and adventure of the Robotech® anime. Two or more players can engage in small squad skirmishes or scale up to massive battles. Relive the clashes of the First Robotech War, engage in stand-alone tactical games or use the dynamic game pieces to enhance your Robotech® RPG experience. Or simply collect your favorite mecha from an expanding range of top notch game pieces.

Mecha vs Mecha. Take command of the fighting forces of the United Earth Defense Force (UEDF) valiantly defending Earth from alien annihilation. Or lead the massive clone armies of the Zentraedi Armada to recover an alien artifact of immense power and enslave humankind.
