OK, we have reached the point in our hobby where expansions have expansions.

Only played one game of Fleet so far with my wife and it was a hit so I went and purchased the base game expansion and then Arctic Bounty. There is from what I see on Eagle Games another 54 card Arctic Bounty mini-expansion pack listed as pre-order. I was wondering if anyone knows of the status of that? Can't find anything on when it will be available.

I wonder if it is the stuff from the Kickstarter made into an expansion? I don't recall how much extra stuff it was but it sounds right. If not I'm in for it. Fleet was an instant hit for me and my wife and Arctic Bounty bumped it up for two players and solo, so I love this game.

It is the stuff from the Kick starter made into an expansion. They did it with the Fleet reprint and now with Arctic Bounty. Want to make sure I get it because there aren't a lot of games she likes. She likes this so I went whole hog. Even got the crab meeples.

I pre-ordered it from Eagle. They said it would be available in July. They are taking pre-orders now.

As David said: available in July. I ordered a bunch of stuff about a month ago and it's holding up the entire thing, so I'm HOPING it's early July. My understanding is the die is supposed to be rare, so if you want that, I suggest placing your order and waiting rather than waiting and placing an order.

In response to all the questions/comments above, the remainder of the FAB expansion packs (fewer than 200) leave on a container from China on June 9 and should be available for shipping out to you around July 11. Given the limited quantity and the pre-orders we have already received, you would be wise to get a pre-order for these into us ASAP at www.eaglegames.net.

Thanks for your interest--Rick Soued, for Eagle and Gryphon Games

The crab meeples are excellent. My wife loves this game too, and with the FAB kickstarter I got the fish and of course the crab meeples and she was actually excited about a kickstarter for once I think Fleet is a heck of a gem.

Thanks, I e-mailed E&G a while ago asking about the pre-order and never heard back. Should have thought to check here first. I also ordered the Crab Meeples (which are currently available?), but I'm guessing it makes sense to just ship it all together?

Just rec'd a receipt for my pre-order (plus other Fleet goodies), so hopefully that means it's shipping soon.

[edit] In a follow-up email, they said the container was currently in New Mexico and was due to arrive at their facility by the end of next week.

So we're still a couple of weeks out, but getting closer...

Steve, thanks for that last tidbit. This process has been driving me crazy.

My last update was a UPS notification with tracking number on the 16th indicating expected delivery on the 18th.

This has all been exacerbated by Eagle-Gryphon's non-response to my order comments months ago: "Order Comments: PAID-SW contact me if the Arctic Bounty Expansion pack will delay this order more than a few weeks and/or if Pergamon becomes available prior to shipping". Why have a place for comments if no one is going to DO anything with them?

It looks like the UPS notification was a premature input by EG. They've had me concerned for over a week, since 2-3 days is what it almost always takes for me to get ground deliveries.

I came in here to ask if anyone has gotten theirs, but it doesn't sound like it so I guess I'll keep waiting.

Where did you guys get your tracking numbers? I have two order confirmation e-mails on Jun 5th, and another on July 16th. None of them have a tracking number. When I log into the Eagle Games site, my order says it's shipped via USPS Priority Box, but there's no tracking number there as well.

I've tried contacting Customer Service twice through their website and got their automated response twice, but two business days came and went without a word from them. Should I try the "Warehouse" option on their form?

I ordered this through Eagle's website as well and have yet to receive it. My buddy, who failed to get it as a Kickstarter backer, emailed them through the Arctic Bounty Kickstarter page and received his a few days ago.

Never heard back from the Warehouse option, either, or anyone, BUT, this showed up in mail a couple days ago with everything a-ok. Just FYI.
