It suggests they are bundled together:

“ Rebellion Unplugged are delighted to present, for the first time in over thirty years, a brand new printing of the Games Workshop classics Block Mania and Mega Mania.”

Hmm. Have examined the wording further, and yeah, it’s not clear at all!

The blurb that was sent out in the newsletter shows two separate boxes, so maybe Mega Mania + Happy Hour is a separate expansion?

That was my assumption and at £30 surely there's no way you get both? I still can't see Mega Mania so guessing that's a later release? I'll keep checking back as the day goes on just in case.

On another note when I first ordered it said it was due to be released in February - which I was absolutely fine with. Now it says shipping in 4 days!

That's my understanding.

That's my understanding.

A printing of two products suggests they're going to be bundled - though the description at the bottom of the page says two boards - for those not familiar, this means two blocks - i.e. the original Block Mania but not the expansion.

Yes even the shipping weight would confirm that you're getting the original game only.
The blurb is confusing though because it mentions that Mega Mania is being reprinted too.
The £30 price tag for both would be a throwback to the '80s where one of these games would be in the GB£12.95 bracket! £30 for Block Mania alone is very good value, I think.

Mega Mania is there now

and ordered...

and only £25 - so £55 (plus postage) all in - not bad if you ask me.

I think they'll probably put that right for you if you contact them. It really wasn't clear what was going on.

Good Grud! Why didn't they make this available at 12pm like they said they would?

I hope I can contact the relevant authorities to rectify my order!
