Nope, we aren't at Essen this year.

So unless someone has stolen a copy there shouldn't be any news there.

If IDW has anything to do with it - I would avoid it. They ran a very piss-poor Kickstarter campaign for Kill Shakespeare. Sorry for the actual designers.

My biggest disappointment is watching the release dates pass by with no news. July, August, September, now October and I have no idea what is happening.

I would like to know how the release dates were determined. Are they decided after manufacturing is started? Or did IDW shoot from the hip and approximate a date from their current development stage.

I try to look on the bright side where possible. But this upset me because by comparison so many companies I have bought from have excellent communication about their products. My favourites are Gamelyn Games, Victory Point Games, Level 99 Games, Sirlin Games, Cheapass Games and Laboratory Games. I am sharing this information because I would like IDW to check out what these guys do right.

In the end my rant is fuelled by my excitement for the game. It looks like a fantastic product. I hope that if we are given an update about the game that care is taken with the answer given. Better to promise less and deliver more, than promise more and deliver less.

Keep in mind IDW is new at this. Also we know it is getting printed, so it doesn't matter if we hear or not, Just got to be patient. At least it is not Galaxy trucker expansion style where it was suppose to come out then a year later they said oh there are delays, and nothing till it came out.

Level 99 has great products but they are not exactly the best when it comes to release dates...

True, but they are great at communicating. You know every step of the way what is going on, which is ok for me. This is what I was getting at with IDW, there is no clear communication or feedback on the status of the game, only "In stores September".

I am not aware of the Galaxy Trucker expansion, hopefully it does not go that way. Regarding IDW being new at board games, this is part of the reason for my comments. I want to give this feedback so they can discuss and improve for the next time. Because I am secretly hoping for some Proof comic love in the future in table top gaming. (hint hint)

If I hear "Remember IDW is new at the game business, so cut them some slack!!" again, I will lose my mind.

If I woke my 13 year old niece in the middle of the night and said "Surprise, you're running a game company, now get to it!!", she would run it better in her half-woken state than IDW has been running things for the last year. We're not talking about building the Mars lander here, it's actually pretty simple stuff.

After the bungling of Machi Koro, Kill Shakespeare and now X-Files, you've got to ask yourself if this company isn't being run by stoners and/or completely incompetent clowns.

I would award 100 awesome points if IDW is staffed by stoner clowns.
