Just heard a report on the radio that the freighter carrying copies of BOTTA to north America capsised and sank due to unseasonal gales in the mid-Atlantic. Fortunately no lives were lost. Fantasy Flight have issued a statement that, due to large demand in European stores, it's now unlikely the game will appear in America until August at the earliest.

Your joke would have been better served if you said something more plausible. Considering Botta's history, if you had said, "FFG discovered a last second printing error and has now pushed the game's release into May (which obviously means July). . ."

Only that might have been too close to the truth for some BGG'ers to handle. I applaud the effort though.
