Why there is such small amount distributed? They are sold out everywhere and when shops got some, it was like 2-3 boxes only.

Preorders were low, but I assure you: we made plenty, they're available today at both the manufacturer and distributor, and you should have no trouble obtaining one (special order or otherwise). It's really a great piece, if I do say so myself: new maps, complete rulebook for all expansions to date, boards so as not to have to use the original game board for info tracking, and a box for all of your other expansions (and tested so that you put them in there and not have it break when you lift it...).

Alex, I don't mean to be rude, but I have been waiting for this expansion to reach the UK for months and it still isn't here. It was advertised to be at the UKEXPO, but when I asked at the Mayfair booth they told me it wasn't going to be released for the expo.

When are we going to be able to get it over here? I looked at getting it from the US but the shipping was more than the game. I love Steam and all the products you have produced for this game, just a little disappointed about not being able to get hold of this one.

A loyal fan.

Well, it came in a touch late for us to bring to UKGE, so that one's on us. Beyond that...I'll forward this thread on to our sales manager and see if there's a reason we're not stocked over there at the moment (perhaps brisker-than-predicted sales, perhaps low preorders). In any event, if Esdevium asks for more, they're on their way as soon as we can get them in a box!

Just a quick update: The ever-vigilant Dan Decker, our sales guy, confirms that there's a batch of Steam #5 ready to go, and about to be sent with a big batch of Isle of Skye (which held up that particular restock by a few days). All this and more should be crossing over to your side of the Atlantic soon, with distribution to stores before the end of the month.

Good luck!

The shop owners I talked to told me that the distributor in Canada had very limited quantity and that they don't know when they will get more.

Well, I'm hoping that everyone who wants this will continue to post here, and pester their retail sources, because we've got the games and we'd love them to be in other people's hands (and to demonstrate to distributors the continuing demand)!...

This game box is amazing. More games with tons of expansions should take example... make a damn expansion box big enough to hold the base game + every damn expansions released. I am tired of having tons of box that do not close fit anymore because there is too much stuff in them.

Agreed. It is even more annoying when each expansion box has a different sized box and so it is awkward to store together but it also cannot be combined into one box.
