Surprising. I though that most people would prefer 2017 and 2018 to 2019 because of the games :)

Personally I think it is best to have the whole set.
Does matranet manually process the order such that I should expect a bit of a delay?
(I have bought from them before but it was so long ago I don't remember)

I think so. But you may expect greater delay because of the international pandemic situation. Hope you receive them asap though.

BTW, already half of the stock has been sold. ~25 cassettes of each are still available.

Yep they sent me an email just after I went to bed, all sorted now.
I'm sure I will get it eventually, hopefully before CPCRetroDev 2020  ;D .

Stock update (after 5 days):
  • Cassette 2019: <10 units
  • Cassette 2018: <18 units
  • Cassette 2017: <24 units
Quite surprising numbers. We actually thought that 2018 and 2017 would sell faster because they have more praised games (Operation Alexandra, Jarlac, Baba's Palace, Profanation 2, Cris Odd Prelude...).

What would be interesting to know is who are the primary people who buy it.
Are they people in the scene who like physical releases or is it people who were a part of the competition and wanted a physical version? Or both :)

It is also possible that the games from 2019 are most fresh in peoples mind.
