I don't know what their policy as far as backers receiving their games first is. But I can tell you as of Jan 18 the games were on the boat and headed for the US. Typically I think it's about a months time to complete the journey and clear customs (unless the container gets held up at customs, which obviously will increase the time). Then maybe a week or two to actually receive the games at their facility. So lets, for the sake of argument and optimistically say the week of March 3rd. Backers will start to receive their games at that time and as I said already I don't really know if Game Salutes KS policy is backers first or not but I would say around first or second week of April maybe.

This is all purely speculation though, I could be way off.

Given that neither recent kickstarter was for Alien Frontiers 4th printing (they were for rocket dice and the promo pack/new faction packs respectively, you could just add a 4th printing edition of AF to your order) I imagine that they'll release it to everyone at about the same time.

As of Friday, Feb. 7, neither ACD nor Alliance were showing this as available for preorder. If this were on the boat here as of mid-January, you would think that both of these two huge distributors would have further info, since they usually have things available for preorder 2-3 months in advance of release.

I think we may be waiting even longer. Given that I just got the bad news on Wok Star's minimum six-month delay, which I called, I'm feeling pessimistic on AF, as it and WS (also Game Salute) are the only two games in my purchase list right now.

Yes, we're expecting the game to arrive in port this week (hopefully today!). Once backers have their copies sent out, we'll then make the game available for public purchase. If you'd like to be amongst the first to get your copy of AF4, head on over to shop.gamesalute.com and pre-order!

That's nice to know. Thanks, Michael. Why the long delay?

Are you not planning to distribute AF through FLGSs? I was hoping to order a copy through my local store as a means of support.

No, they are still waiting to take delivery of the games.

Don't know about the backers, but the new edition finally showed up in ACD Distribution's pre-order list. I had my FLGS owner order it two weeks ago.

That said, it did not show in Alliance Distribution's pre-order list at that time. Anyone know if this has changed?

My FLGS's owner quoted me $49.99.
