With GenCon now in the past I'm wondering when exactly the pre-order copies will start shipping to people?

Thanks for replying Grant. But why do long? I would have thought that the first print run would already be behind you. (I guess I've been spoiled by the quick arrival of Scythe in the retail market.)

Portal air-freighted 300 copies, at quite the expense, to Gen Con in order to sell them. That's why we sold out -- high demand, and not a lot of copies.

The game won't be in retail until about October, so you'll still have the game early.

The game is manufactured in Europe/China, must be shipped, sent to warehouses, then to stores, etc. It's a very long logistical pipeline.

So, you ARE getting it early. Gen Con was a pre-release. Not THE release.

So, preorders through Portal will ship in September and preorders through other stores will ship in October?

Portal should be about Septemberish, yes.

Retail is Octoberish. CoolStuff, etc. are retail, so Octoberish.

Current statement on the Portal website is:

US release is scheduled for end of September, EU - at Essen. Preorders will be shipped in early September.


So I may try to get a copy brought back from Essen for me.

Portal normally do pre-orders, and given how hot this is I think it's very likely this will be one of them.
