Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant WizKids   Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant is a singularly unique trading and negotiation game for 4-9 players. Over the course of the game, each race must trade and negotiate with the rest to acquire the resources necessary to fund their economy and allow it to produce goods for the next turn. While technically a competitive game, Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant has a uniquely cooperative feel during the trading phase as no race has the ability to thrive on its own. Trade well, and you'll develop technologies and colonize planets to form a civilization that is the envy of the galaxy. Each player chooses one of the nine unique and asymmetrical alien races that have come together to form a trade federation in their quadrant. Each race has its own deck of cards representing all the existing and future technologies it might research. Some races also have other cards related to unique features of their culture. These cards represent portions of the culture's economy and require spending some number of resources to use, resulting in an output of more resources, ships, and possibly victory points. Since each culture's outputs rarely match their inputs, players need to trade goods with one another to run their converters to create the resources they truly need to run their society most efficiently and have an effective economy. Almost everything is negotiable, including colonies, ships, VP and all kinds of resources. Each game round contains an open trading phase in which all players can negotiate and execute deals for resources, ships, colonies, even the temporary use of technologies! Players with enough resources can also research technologies, upgrade colonies, and spend resources on their race's special cards during this phase. Once complete, all players simultaneously run their economies, spending resources to gain more resources. The Convocation follows, starting with players sharing newly researched technologies with all other races and following with bidding to acquire new colonies and research teams. Researching a new technology grants many victory points for the prestige of helping galactic society advance. When one race builds a new technology, it is shared with everyone else. Technologies can be upgraded when combined with other technologies. The ultimate goal is victory points, which are acquired by researching technologies, using your economy to convert resources to goods, and converting your leftover goods into points at the end of the game. The game is almost all simultaneous play, keeping the game play moving. COMPONENTS: 390 Cards 292 Wood Pieces Dozens of Tokens 9 Player Sheets  Rules 4-9 Players, Ages 14+, 120 Min

PRE-ORDER INFORMATION

Q: What is a pre-order?

A: Each item in the WizKids store has an associated release date, representing the date that the product becomes available at Friendly Local Game Stores or for shipping from the WizKids online store. The WizKids online store offers some products that can be ordered in advance of their official release. All release dates are subject to change without notice.

Q: How do I place a pre-order?

A: To pre-order an item, add it to your shopping cart and go through the standard checkout process. After your order is placed, you will automatically receive a confirmation email containing a reference number. Please note that you must use a credit card in order to pre-order.

Q: Can I pre-order more than one item at a time?

A: Yes! You’re welcome to pre-order as many items as you like, and each will be delivered once it has been released. However, please note that certain products may have quantity restrictions.

Q: When will I be charged?

A: You will be charged at the time you place the pre-order.

 Q: What happens if the release date changes?

A: Occasionally, the release date of a product may be changed, or it may be cancelled all together. Should this occur, you will receive an email update. If the product is cancelled, we will notify you and refund your purchase.

 Q: What happens if the item I ordered receives a special offer or giveaway after I place my pre-order?

A: Any offers or special bonuses that become available as part of the pre-order (e.g. free gifts, promo cards, etc.) will be added to all existing pre-orders, even if these offers were unavailable at the time you placed your pre-order.

Q: What if I purchase Pre-Order and a non Pre-Order item at the same time?

A: If you include a Pre-Order item in your order, the whole order will be held until the pre-order is available. Alternatively, you may have your non pre-order items shipped separately for an additional cost. Please select the shipping option with “(Multiple Shipments)” in the title at checkout to enable this option.

 Q: Will I receive a reminder about my pre-order before it ships?

A: No. We will only notify you if something about your order has changed (e.g., the release date).

 Q: What if I change my mind? Will I be able to cancel my order?

A: Yes. You will be able to cancel your order any time before it ships. If your order has already shipped, you can still return it, but it must be unopened, and you may be charged for the return shipping. 

 Q: When will I receive my pre-ordered items?

A: WizKids strives to ensure that pre-ordered items are delivered within a timely manner on, or around, their actual release dates.

 

CANCELLATION POLICY

We make every attempt to process orders as quickly as possible. Should you wish to cancel your order, you may any time before it ships.

 

RETURN POLICY

We hope you’re always 100% happy with your order, but in case anything doesn’t go as planned…

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER ON SHOP.WIZKIDS.COM:

  • ALL SALES ARE FINAL AT SHOP.WIZKIDS.COM.
  • WIZKIDS WILL NOT MODIFY, REROUTE OR CANCEL AN ORDER ONCE PLACED.
  • WIZKIDS MAY CANCEL/REFUND ORDERS AT ANYTIME DUE TO STOCK LIMITATIONS, QUALITY PROBLEMS, INACCURATE INFORMATION FROM CUSTOMER, FRAUD RISK ANALYSIS OR ANY OTHER REASON.
  • WIZKIDS DOES NOT GUARANTEE PRODUCT BOX / PACKAGING.

Many of our products are collectible and have certain conditions under which they must be returned in order to keep their value.  We have developed what we believe is a fair return policy, as stated below. Please note that by purchasing goods from shop.WizKids.com, you have agreed to the following terms.

DEFECTIVE TOY RETURN POLICY

All sales are final at shop.WizKids.com.

Many items we sell are collectible, made in limited runs and are often hand-painted or hand-assembled. Slight imperfections are typical with this kind of product and, in fact, often enhance the value.  However, if your merchandise purchased on shop.WizKids.com has a significant defect right out of the box (e.g., the product is broken in half, has missing parts or missing accessories, etc.), please reach out to us immediately with photos, your name, your order number and what is damaged. We will evaluate the photos and make a decision. If the damage qualifies for an exchange, we'll be happy to exchange it for a non-damaged item if one is available. If a replacement is not available, we will offer an alternate item or store credit at our discretion.  ALL OTHER TOY & PRODUCT SALES AT SHOP.WIZKIDS.COM ARE FINAL.

Please note that WizKids WILL NOT be able to replace a specific blind box figure with the same figure as blind boxes are even blind to us. If the defective figure you received from shop.WizKids.com was blind boxed, attempts will be made to replace the same figure, but we may elect at our sole discretion to replace with same rarity an alternative fig. You agree to this policy by placing an order shop.WizKids.com.

HOW TO MAKE AN APPROVED RETURN / EXCHANGE

For defective products purchased at shop.WizKids.com, please contact Customer Service at Shopify@wizkids.com within FOURTEEN (14) days from the date of receipt and provide the order number, reason for return and a return e-mail address.  A WizKids Customer Support Representative will evaluate your return request and contact you with a RETURN AUTHORIZATION NUMBER (RAN) if your return is accepted (see Defective Toy Return policies above).

Follow the return instructions provided by our Customer Support Staff, use suitable packing materials (please send it back in a shipping box for safety!), and make sure to write your RAN on the outside of your box. Our Returns Department will refuse orders that are returned without an RAN. Once the return is received, you will be contacted via email. It's that simple.

Please note the following: 

PROMOS: We are unable to honor sale and/or promotional pricing or promo codes once an order has been completed. In addition, we cannot honor sale / promotional pricing once a sale or promotion has ended. We do not allow stacked discounts.  Promo / coupon codes exclude non-USA orders and are only valid on USA orders over $20.

WizKids does not guarantee product packaging.  While we do realize that the product packaging can be important for some collectors, the product packaging's purpose is to keep the art piece intact during the transfer from our warehouse to your home.

WizKids will only accept defective returns for items that are received in their original packaging.  Accessories, plastic packaging, and anything else that came with the item must be included as well. If your return does not meet these conditions, you'll be charged a 15% or $15 re-stocking fee, whichever is greater, or have your defective merchandise returned to you. Items damaged due to customer abuse or negligence will not be accepted.

To return or exchange a WizKids product purchased at a retailer, please contact the store where the purchase was made and follow their return and exchange guidelines. Shop.WizKids.com will not accept returns or exchanges on items purchased from any other stores. We understand that the box/packaging is art itself, however, WizKids will not exchange/return an item due to defective/damaged packaging.
