Hello fellow Canadians!

Where are you all going to try to get (or actually get) your copy of Civ 4? I have phone numbers ready for the following local stores...

Best Buy
Compucentre
EB Games
Future Shop
Wal-Mart

So far I get dates from these five stores anywhere from 27th to 31st. ARGH!

If you find it in a store in Canada please post? I'll do the same. Thanks and Good Hunting!

I'll be going to Futureshop tomorrow to check out release dates.  I have several EBs to check here too but Futureshop is usually sooner.

Websites for Future Shop and Best Buy had it at 49.99 as opposed to 59.99 - EBG was quoting 59.99.
Newspaper flyers this morning only quoted 59.99 all around.
I was planning on going to EB (as they just a couple of klicks away) and asking for a price match.

I've called FS and EB for the last few days.  They both say that shipment was delayed and it will be out today.  One of the EB's had collectors edition out yesterday but they were all sold to pre-orders.

Found a copy today in Staples.
Two tech trees - one in each official language - and a Quick Guide instead of a manual.  There is reference to a full manual on CD, however.
I'll install tonight ... especially as I just finished Dungeon Siege II last night.

Wut? No spiral-bound manual? Is that for the Limited Edition only or something? BOOOOO!

It's odd, I got the same thing at Best Buy.  It's not collectors edition, it's more like Value edition because the quick guide sucks compared to the full manual.   To make it even worse, the box had a duplicate Manual CD and no Install Disc 2.  Impatient old me ended up going to a EB near me instead of returning it and bought another copy from there.  This copy had the full manual.  I just hope I can return the BB copy since it's defective.

Anyway, I love this game!  I've also been lucky to not come accross any bugs or performance issues (even near the late game).

Yikes.
I'll see (long odds, I know) if I can just score a full manual somewhere.
