Release says "November". Hmm.

When will I realistically be able to obtain this game in the US? Alchemists has become a favorite in the house and would really like to get my hands on the expansion ASAP!

Its available right now on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Alchemists-Kings-Golem-Board-Player/d...

I bought this on November 2 and had a chance to get three plays in this past weekend. The Golem expansion truly brings Alchemists to an 11 go get your hands on it ASAP!

Hi Justin,

I saw, but was very suspicious of that Amazon offer, because:

1) The box art is different than both CGE and CSI's page. e.g. it says "Golem Expansion" (in yellow/gold) but it should be "King's Golem" (in blue)

2) The price is about $10 more then MSRP, and almost 2x CSI's price. It's actually $10 more than the base game, even.

3) The game doesn't seem to actually be out yet, per CGE's page, so I don't know what the Amazon page could be selling??

Thanks for your reply!
-Brian

Well, it's not like there could possibly be two different things. They are just using a preproduction image from some convention display, because that's what they had.

I purchased this from Amazon and it was fulfilled by Funagain games for $39.99 it looks like the price went up but if its Amazon I wouldn't hesitate if there is a mix up customer service will clear it right up for you.

Thanks Justin. And the copy you received was "King's Golem" with blue lettering? Not the art currently showing on the product detail page?

Well, at this moment the Amazon page is saying "expected to arrive after Christmas", so I'm guessing that it's not worth canceling my CoolStuffInc preorder in the hopes of getting it faster through Amazon...though the validity of that statement depends on when the full shipment is expected to arrive, I guess. I assume the copies available on Amazon were acquired from Essen or something?

If you'll notice, the fulfillment is done by a company in the UK, so yeah, Essen is a good bet.

Good to know! I preordered at 401 Games and they just had an image saying Pre-Order Delayed. Good to see a bit more new info.
