I missed the kickstarter, but ran across Study in Emerald in the comments about Witches. Does anybody know when the game will be made available for the rest of us to buy?

As far as I know, apart from a handful of retailers who may have picked up a few copies for resale at Essen, the only way to buy this will be directly from the Treefrog website - that is what the KS pitch stated anyway. A few US sellers may have picked up 6 or 10 packs for sale from the KS campaign as well.

At the moment Treefrog have not got in on the website for direct sale as they have had distribution problems and they are trying to ensure KS backers get their copies first.

From Treefrogs page: http://www.treefroggames.com/

Some shops that got it at Essen and Kickstarter might have it, other than that - it might come out in 2015, it's not certain though.

Edit: ninja by V, so it's an honour. And I'm wrong about the game being sold at Treefrogs page.

Seems to be available here:

http://www.leisuregames.com/acatalog/A-Study-In-Emerald-tree...

But at £49 I think I'll skip for now. It looks interesting, but not must-have, and that price is strictly limited to my "must-have" selection.

I KickStarted a 6-pack and plan to eBay a few copies, if and when I ever get them.

I'm tempted to buy a copy, just to see if I get it before my 'early bird' (which is apparently going to ship in the next week...??)

Is there going to be a U.S. release or do I bite a very expensive bullet and order from an International source?

There is no general US (or anywhere) retail release for the near future, however, I'm sure there will be a few US retailers who have bought 6 or 10 packs as part of the KS campaign and will therefore be selling the game in very limited quantities - plus a few private purchasers/sellers, like Chris above.

Apart from Treefrog themselves, the only international sellers you are likely to see selling the game are going to be those who have also bought muti-packs from KS, and they will be in the same boat as the US sellers above but with the disadvantage for yourself of international postage.

So you either try and strike early and buy a limited availability US copy (undoubtedly with a generous mark-up), or, strike now and buy a limited availability international copy (with similar mark-up and hefty shipping tag), or, wait for Treefrog (who are still experiencing distribution limbo in terms of getting KS backers their copies) and trust their shipping is not too expensive, or, wait for the general retail reprint in 2015.

They haven't actually started selling ASiE yet correct?

Correct in that Treefrog have not yet started selling it direct from their website - I believe they will as soon as they have cleared the backlog of UK (and global 'earlybird' orders) at their replacement UK fulfilment company - the first one completely underperformed. From KS updates and info from the new fulfilment co on another thread, I suspect this will still take a couple of weeks - although I suppose Treefrog may take orders ahead of that, when they are certain the dispatch backlog is definitely under control.

I think a future reprint and full retail release was expressed as 'not available until at least 2015' - which could imply 'not at all' I suppose.
