Does anyone know when this is being released?" I was on Rio Grande's website and there is no information on this game. Does anyone know if Rio Grande will have the english version?

I believe the Ystari version is "end of March"

Not sure if Rio Grande will be picking it up, but Ystari usually publish in three languages themselves.

I've found zero places that have this game for pre-order. Strange being so close to the release isn't it?

The game is produced and available in Germany (for example, http://www.12spiel.de/product_info.php?products_id=2480). It will be distributed in mid-april in France (during the Gencon). I guess it will be end of April or beginning of May for Rio Grande.

Now, with all the American gamers among us, why do release dates still come in two parts? I know we win out on the movie releases, but I'll give Europeans movies premieres if I can get the games first. Seriously, there has to be a way for a release date to come to light on the same day in both parts of the world. For one, it definitely can pay off for some distributors to grab some and sell them at outrageous prices because they have them and others don't. A set street date would be nice, such as wizards of the coast has imposed on M:TG expansions. Keeps one guy from having all the cards before anyone else and capitalizing on that fact.
Now, question number two, is there any place that sells mykerinos that ships to the states that has a webpage in english, and doesn't cost upwards to 45 dollars to ship it?

The game is produced in Germany so maybe it's why it's release this week in Germany, next week in France and three weeks after in US, since you can't teleport products instantly I guess it's the way distribution is.

I don't know for the second question.

The effect being that 'us Europeans' get to play it three weeks later. Does it really bother you that much, that someone on the other side of the Ocean is playing the game three weeks in advance while you have been longing to play it for so long?

Impatience is not a virtue, but is fairly correct in an addiction such as having "fun". It is like a new record release, something you have to get as soon as possible so you can relish in the sounds. A new game that has been on your mind for over 4 months has just enough information on it for you to know you want it, add it to your wish list, and then yes, sooner the better. Then after it is out and you have a copy you can look back three weeks later and laugh that you worried so much, since it gets played only 2-3 a year due to the massive game closet you have already. Yup, it is an addiction.

Unfortunately, Thomas is right.

I would love to make worldwide release, but it's not possible due to the fact the
games are produced in Europe.

The only way would be to delay the release in Europe, but it's not possible since i've got to pay the games when they're produced and not when i release them.

It takes a long, long time for a ship to cross the Atlantic ocean, and even if the Rio Games are produced along with the European one, it's impossible to reduce the delay...

About the language question, the rio Grande verion is US/French.

Regards,
Cyril

Waiting 3-4 weeks after the game's initial release in its home country is not going to kill me. Indeed, there have been many a helpful player willing to give reviews, session reports, photos, and so on. This has the effect of giving those players in the "delayed release" countries more to think about, and only makes the the fun of anticipation that much greater.
