this would be a Christmas present, so releasing "sometime in quarter 4 of 2013" isn't good enough...i need to know if the online retailers currently taking pre-orders for this game are going to have copies of this game to ship?

otherwise, there are plenty of other excel choices and i'll make one...thanks

The last of the US KS games should have arrived about a week ago. I would think the rest of the distribution chain would be getting them very shortly. I would think copies of the game could be had within the next 4 weeks for sure.

Are you going to bgg.con? If so, I imagine the Queen booth will have copies since they told me to get my replacement boards for my KS copy there.

Last year they had Lancaster expansion copies there loooong before they hit retail.

MY KS copy is not here and I have written to Queen with no response.

What to do next?

My KS copy has not arrived either, but I got quick responses from Nikki by contacting Queen through KS. Is that the route you took, Andy? My copy was mailed late but is on its way. This is understandable in my book since I am at an APO.

No, I've been writing through the website. I'll try the KS.

My thanks.

You won't get an answer or an apology from Queen.

They'll ignore all your questions and make some bizarre comments such as "it's not available retail yet, only pre-order".

I exchanged 4 or 5 messages with Nikki and she provided me with a tracking number for my package. I don't know what is going on with the UK deliveries (I'm following that thread too), but I don't think it's the same issue. I hope you get your game soon, Neil.

I (and others) received our games yesterday.

Essentially it looks as though we were forgotten about. No idea who is in charge of shipping, but we've not even had an apology from Queen - very annoying.

I wrote an email to everyone listed as officers in the corporation and got a response from Beatte (?) promptly. I received the game in a few days, missing an expansion. I wrote her again and she promised to send it soon. Still waiting.

Great game

Here is my word of advice - any game that isn't on the shelves in November, just cross it off your XMAS list. Even if they come back and say it will be out December whatever. It almost never happens.

Also, not that this is specifically an Essen title, but just don't ever bother trying to get Essen releases for Christmas. Many promise the release in Q4 of the year or some such. Again, it almost never happens.

Everybody wants/hopes/lies that their title will be there in time for Christmas so you see tons of promises for December or Q4. Just never believe it and you'll be happier in the long run.

Yeah, lots of people got hosed for Terra Mystica when they pre-ordered it and then got the email of doom saying that MM or CSI didn't get as many as they were promised. So some people that pre-ordered it got it, while others were told to wait for the 2nd printing.

Take this with a grain of salt, but the Amazon listing for Funagain's copy says that the release date is tomorrow:
