Anyone have any idea when those of us who pre-ordered the game can expect to receive it?

Set your expectations for mid to late September. Be pleasantly surprised if it comes earlier.

About a month ago, Plaid Hat support was saying that their preorders would ship late August or early September, with third-party sites trailing behind. At Gencon, Rob mentioned that he thought the ships were being loaded (during Gencon), and that delivery would probably occur in September or possibly October. Both of these estimates are somewhat ambiguous, though.

For what its worth, I've sent a query to PHG Support to see if they have any updated shipping info. If I hear anything back, I'll post it. (I'm hoping for a ship name, so we can track it online!)

I received notification that my shipping notice has been created. No idea when it might ship.

Really? Are you sure its for SeaFall? If it is, that would be a surprise, though a thoroughly pleasant one -- since it might well mean that the games have reached Plaid Hat's warehouse (ie, the original estimate is about right, and Rob's was pessimistic)!

Gaaack! I posted in the wrong forum! I am sick and fairly out of it (more than I thought). Sorry.

I do hope the pre-orders ship on time.

I am beginning to worry there might not be enough units for Essen.

Please let there be enough (English) units for Essen.

They avoided sending potentially useful information such as the name of the ship, but indicated that they still expect to receive the shipment and send out preorder shipping notices in the late August to mid September timeframe. If so, it sounds as though PHG preorders should be getting their games by the end of September (though possibly earlier in the month). I think they originally indicated that third-party retailers would lag by up to a month.

For what it's worth, Plaid Hat Games's twitter account has been talking about this same timeframe (late August to mid-September) for a month or so, so it does seem like pre-orders can expect to start seeing shipping info in the next 2-4 weeks.

Well, given that it's a game where you can attack ships, do you really think they'd give out what ship the goods are on?

Well, they also haven't released the rules for raiding ships yet (and those few who have those rules already have their copy), so their ship is safe regardless...

Yup. Would be nice to have an update, as there's been none in the last ... what, three weeks now? At the very least, it would be nice to know whether or not the shipment has been released from customs.

I wonder if the rumored Hanjin Shipping bankruptcy will have an impact on the delivery date?

I don't believe it should affect them if the boxes are already with customs. If they haven't been received by customs, then it may be the reason for the delay.
