Dang, bad timing for me.

Flying to central Asia Sunday for three weeks.

I guess Foresaken Lore will be awaiting me when I get back on Mother's day.

By then you folks will all have played it and posted about it.

While you're there make sure to look into troubling reports of a strange green meteor impact in the Tunguska region...

It's not like Forsaken Lore costs a fortune. The price is pretty good.

That page announces the expected date at april 30th. 12 days to go!

www.bol.com announces a release at may 22th in Belgium and Holland. EH released about 2 weeks after US here so I think the first copies will be available early may in US.

Does it really take that long to reach Italy? In the UK I can normally expect it about a week or so after US folks have got it. At least with FFG titles.

Amazon in the UK is taking pre-orders with a 15/5 release date specified. £19.99 shipped. I'll wait to see if any of the other OLGs here have it at similar prices, but I'm guessing 15/5 is a firm-ish date.

Really? How is Amazon US not taking pre-orders? I don't get it.

Don't take it to mean anything. Amazon UK's preorders and general stock of FFG product is appalling. They've had that date up for a while, it's meaningless. I've experienced their preorders falling through and the status of the games on Amazon uk fluctuates more than anything I've seen. I'd rather they weren't taking preorders at all if it meant that one they do get the stock they will reliably tell me if they have it or not.

I wouldn't pre-order from Amazon UK. I pre-ordered EH a month before it came out and a month after it came out Amazon emailed to say they could not fulfil the order. Never again. As the saying goes - fool me once shame on me, fool me twice shame on me.

Yes, same thing happened to me, and I've also not pre-ordered from them for that reason.

It depends what you're willing to pay. The first copies of games in english are usually on ebay and are too costly, if I want to pay MSRP+vat I have to wait a bit and if I want a discount (and maybe free shipping) I have to wait quite some time.

I mostly order from Amazon.it and uplay.it and sometimes thebookdepository.co.uk (but they don't have so many boardgames), to have free shipping.

Exactly the same thing happened to me!

My girlfriend preorded me EH in September (early prep for Christmas) and a few weeks after release they said they couldn't fulfill. It was so frustrating.

Hi Arturo, I lives in Italy too, but I usually order the original version in other stores, outside Italy. Philibertnet.com is quite good, but I usually search for the cheapest one. You can use amazon.de and amazon.fr too, they ship to Italy and have different catalogs. Even if you pay more for shipping, usually the total price is way less than buying in italy

You're probably not still looking at this but I thought I'd post anyway!

So I've been watching amazon for the release of Foresaken lore (basically wondering if they or my FLGS would have it available first) and the instant it was "released" Amazon no longer had it in stock. I have no way of knowing if they messed up any preorders this time but I'm guessing similar things happened to when EH was released.

Luckily my FLGS had it in stick during the week so I picked it up at the weekend. At least I can reliably pre-order through them!
