This is what Thoughthammer (online retailer) emailed to a friend this morning in regards to Caylus:

Quote:
The first release of Caylus was in late 2005. There was a shortage with the initial release, and the reprint has had many postponements. Word is that RGG will be shipping Caylus to distributors some time this week, but we have not heard confirmation.

What we do know is there will be a shortage in the initial second release of Caylus. We will fill our customers' pre-orders in the order in which they were placed. We do not know at this time how many games we will be receiving, so we do not know which orders will be delayed, if any.

Good lord, the "update" on Rio's site is lacking a bit in compassion for those of us waiting patiently through several previous delays.

Can't be bothered with giving the fans any information (other than the wrong dates we have seen for months now).

Is this May this year or is May just another date that got pulled out of thin air, meaning nothing?

Not too happy,

Lance

Yes, that's just for the US. Caylus has been out in Europe for at least a month.

I was in France last week and I've put my hand on what the owner said as the last copy of the 2ed they were able to get and they don't have a clue when they'll be able to get another one.

So yeah, the 2ed is out there... but how many has been printed and when will it hit the american soil... mmm...

Grrrrr. I ordered Caylus from Thought Hammer and I ordered Traders of Genoa along with it. They won't ship Traders of Genoa however until Caylus arrives. I also paid using pay pal in December so in the end I'm not going to get my games until 5 months after I actually paid for them. angry

I've had this on backorder with my FLGS since December.

His distributor told him that there would be a few copies in the next week or two, but only a very few would be available. They promised him at least two copies (The first one's mine )

If they wait until may... shake

Seems like Caylus is suffering from ageofsteamitis - out in Europe, but no sign of it in the US.

Here's some info I got today from Thoughthammer about my pre-order:

Quote:

The last information we heard from our suppliers is that the first
shipment of Caylus should be shipping from RGG this month. There was a
shortage again, so after this first printing is allocated, the next
printing will not be available until April/May.


Cheers,
--tim

I don't want to hear it. There's no sadder game wait tale than that of Pirates! from Eagle Games.

This is the email I got back from Jay at Rio Grande when I ask if there was a release coming now or if we were going to have to wait until May.

We just shipped the second printing and will have a third printing in May

I just got a call from my FLGS in Indianapolis that my copy of "Caylus" just arrived and is available for immediate pickup.

Heading down there now to get it and bring it back to it's new home.

So a least some copies are making their way into the stores.

Excellent news that folks are getting them now.

When I picked mine up yesterday, was told by the owner of my FLGS that he only got 8 copies out of the 12 he ordered.
He also mentioned that he was notified with the shipment that those copies were the only ones he was going to get for awhile.
My advice is grab it if you see it anywhere if you shop at a brick and mortar.

The good news...

My copy of Caylus that I pre-ordered on 12/07 is now listed as available.

The bad news...

My copy of Tempus is included in that order, and the only game of the 5 I ordered that isn't here yet.

I guess they decided to wait for the community response before printing a million of them. If it was rated 6/10 on BGG there would be less complaining about a slow re-print
