Podfather,

What's the street date on this game? I have store credit at CSI burning a hole in my pocket.

I've been digging around trying to figure it out.

Stronghold's website does indeed say Dec. 7th but that information was posted on March 1st. That's quite a while ago. Also, on Stronghold's preorder page for Great Western Trail it states that preorders will only be open for 4-8 weeks. They opened preorders Sept. 23rd, which would put the release date somewhere between Oct. 21st and Nov. 18th.

All of the online game stores I've checked have October listed as the time of release. Not that I put much stock in their predictions.

GTS distribution also claims the release date is October. They also list a preorder date of Oct. 26th, though I'm not sure what that really means.

So, I guess sometime between Oct. 21st and Dec. 7th barring an unforeseen delay.

There. That clears it up…

I feel your pain. Go to Spiel almost every year (1 hr drive) but will probably never attend BGG.CON

I've been watching the Stronghold website for this for several months. They first had it listed as Oct 21, then it moved to late Nov, and more recently landed on Dec 7. I'm guessing Dec 7 is the more likely date.

I'm getting mine from philibertnet.com, and they are still showing October. They will have the European edition, not the Stronghold edition.

Thanks. That is good information. Bad news, but good information.

UK based Thirsty Meeples.

I'm not sure which edition it is. Sounds like it might not be the stronghold edition though.....more likely eggert/Pegasus.

Yesterday I asked Stronghold (on twitter) about the street date through CSI and this was their response:

Nov.9: Fabled Fruit, Fuji Flush;
Nov.23: Great Western Trail, Jorvik, The Fog Of War;
Dec.7: Sola Fide, La Granja: No Siesta!.

I preordered from Philibernet.com so I'm hoping they get theirs in today or tomorrow.

I'm thinking of doing the same.
Does anyone know what the differences are between the two editions?

At least £20 in the UK!

Seriously, the Eggertspiele/Pegasus edition just has a German rulebook and an English rulebook. Different company logos on the box as well. The game is pretty much language independent. The cow cards in my Pegasus even have English names.

Hmm, their latest email has the dates shifted around a bit:

Nov 9: Fabled Fruit, Fuji Flush
Nov 23: Sola Fide: The Reformation, La Granja: No Siesta
Dec 7: Great Western Trail, The Fog of War, Jórvík

Looks like the tweet I got had the list of games for 11/23 and 12/7 flipped.

When that happens, it means that the product is unavailable.

I emailed Philibert with the same issue and they said you can't pre-order it at the moment, but watch the item and as soon as they get the stock you can then place the order.

Stronghold website now says November 23 again. Hopefully this is a good sign for an earlier street date than December.

My copy arrived from Philibert in France late Friday afternoon, less than three days after I clicked the button on the computer to order it. Costs a pretty penny in shipping via UPS express, but well worth it. Only difference between Multi-language version and Stronghold is an extra set of rules in German. The icons and language on the cow cards are exactly the same.

Glad to see Stronghold has moved up the US release date. Hopefully, folks here will soon see what a great game this is, so it can start moving up the BGG ranks to a lofty position, which it fully deserves.
