Just got this email from Thirsty Meeples (who I pre-ordered Inis from);

"We have been told today by Esdevium Games, the UK distributor of Inis, that the release of the game has been been pushed back until January 2017.

The reason cited was a ‘container delay’. At this point we don’t have any more information than that.

We do have a second order of Inis with another supplier in mainland Europe, but they have been unable to confirm when their shipment of the game will arrive. It may will be they are also effected by the same delay.

It is likely then that we won’t be able to fulfil pre-orders until the new year. We appreciate this is disappointing news especially as Inis is one of the hotly anticipated games of this year. If you would like a refund at this stage then please email us."

Anybody else affected by this? Are there any pre-orders going out currently, or is Inis being delayed across the board? I'm not too bothered personally, got more than enough games to keep me busy until the new year if they can't get it from another supplier, just thought people might want to know and / or have more information.

Just curious whether this is affecting multiple UK retailers or just Thirsty Meeples...

Ordered mine from Boardgame Hut, they don't know when they are going to get their order but they've been told they'll only get about half the copies they ordered.

My copy from Board Game Guru got cancelled due to an "extreme deallocation of stock" from Esdevium. Was pretty disappointed.

Maybe they can sell French copies to people who clearly wanted an English one... like they did at Spiel.

What amazes me is that they have English version available in United States, even though it was released at Essen in Europe and it is an European company.

Well I bit the bullet and ordered it from US. Costs extra for shipping and customs, but it's been my most anticipated game for a while

It's gotta be a problem with their UK Distributor (Esdevium) or whatever shipping company they use to ship to the UK?

They told me there is no more stock so I guess all games must have been shipped out already?

And new stock is not even on the cards any time soon. At least couple of months away.

Yeah, the problem is that Asmodee own Esdevium, and Asmodee distribute Matagot games in the US. Guess what happens when they decide they can make more money from one than the other.
