I'm in the UK and have a copy on order from an online UK store (GamesLore), any one got any idea if all distributors will get their copies around this date?

I'm just as excited as you guys are. But listen to Sophie's words, it'll be at the distributors on October 15th. That's today, still relatively early.

The distributors then distribute it to merchants (like your FLGSs and OLGSs). Merchants have probably already placed orders (some to cover pre-orders and some for their stock levels). I'm unsure of the shipping and delivery time from distributor to merchant, but I suspect that we'll see these begin to be delivered to merchants/stores late this week. Fingers crossed that some people will have their copies delivered this weekend, but I would think Friday is the earliest you'll have your copies. Hang in there just a little while longer.

Oh, also I reached out to Z-Man, this print run was over 5000 surprise

I think it's safe to say that the 1000+ users on BGG wanting a copy can secure one given they're willing to buy it. Making strong assumptions about pre-orders here, but I'm willing to guess that there were about 2000 left unfulfilled. Stacking those two numbers, that lives a surplus of about 2000. I think it's safe to say that we'll have plenty of copies!

TL;DR: Sophie speaks true, you'll likely have no difficulty getting a copy very soon.

I hope you're right. I've been trying to purchase this game for a year. I didn't preorder after the first disaster, so I'm hoping to pick it up from an online source as soon as it becomes available. If there are issues similar to the first print run, I'm giving up on TM and moving on.

I'm questioning Z-Man's business model. First this mess with TM, now Ora et Labora is unavailable with no current plans of a reprint.

Plus the differences in the editions of Pandemic. If you own the first edition, then you get to buy a compatibility pack which is roughy the same price as a new copy of the base game. I was planning to buy all of its expansions, but have now changed my mind and will be skipping all of them.

Read my above comments, the distributor (Alliance) should have recieved these today. It'll take them a few days to get to your merchant FLGS or OLGS. Then it'll take your merchant a few days to ship to you. Be patient my friend.

Friday is optimistic. Stores purchase on different dates so I'd say these won't make most stores Thursday order in time.

Arriving at distributors typically means following week release.

We all read it, but the key word is "should." Did it? Obviously "at the distributors" isn't "at your local game store." Those of us who are wondering are merely asking if things are moving ahead on-schedule.

I apologize if you took offense. For the record, I understand your plight. I've been waiting for this since early this year (some of you since last year). I know Z-Man has an iffy track record, but this is easily the most demanded game at this moment. That being said, I don't think Z-Man would want to make it worse for themselves by creating false hope. They've maintained a pretty transparent line of communication here. On that note, I would contact Alliance.

Its not a big deal, jmw23 was right that I was just asking... Were all probably a bit on edge because we want the game now.
Thanks for those numbers, I will give a call to them and try to find out whats going on and besides, it's toll free. robot

It isn't a big deal! I have loads of (sadly) unplayed games on the shelf, so I can wait a few more weeks for Terra Mystica. I was just curious to know how the supply chain was coming along!

Same here for me, quite a few games on my shelf and some haven't been opened... But, my wife says she'd play Terra Mystica too and that's saying a lot. That means it will be opened right away and played

I'm going to have to strong arm the wife to play. If I let her win a few games, she might get on board. Then we can teach the family. That's the real challenge!
