Does Funagain have exclusive retail rights for this in the US?

I believe they are the only ones. People in the US were told to pre-order it thru Funagain if we wanted a copy.

I don't think they have "exclusive rights", they just have the only supply.

Kinda what I suspected, but you never know. Other retailers must be kicking themselves right now!

Nah. Even with the positive reviews this is a small niche game compared to most. It's currently got just over 500 people wishlisting it. By contrast Terraforming Mars and SeaFall have more than 3,000.

As for US distribution, GamesSurplus usually gets Spielworxx titles in eventually. Even CSI and MM have gotten at least limited quantities for many of their titles in the past.

FunAgain always has an open standing pre-order from the start and ships a ton of games directly back from Essen so they're always first.

I'm excited to play this one but will wait to pick it up cheap once Stronghold releases it domestically.

I guess I was expecting this to arrive a little sooner than the Essen Mule Service games since I pre-ordered in July and the European pre-orders started delivering a month ago.

As for stronghold I wouldn't be surprised if they pick it up and it has flimsy cardstock instead of cardboard for some components and a higher MSRP. That seems to be their new standard if Golden Ages expansion, Terraforming Mars, and Great Western Trail are anything to go by.
