Is there any news on when to expect a retail release of this - I was hoping to get it before Christmas.

The backers haven't received yet so that may be unlikely.

Per the KS update posted on 11/6:

Quote:
The container with the main games is already loaded and is scheduled to leave Monday with an arrival into the US fulfillment center at the end of November. By air-shipping the corrected components, they will arrive into the US a little ahead of the main game and will be shipped in the same package to backers.

In the EU, the games will be shipping out within the next 2-3 weeks.

Thanks for the replies, I didn't realise backers still hadn't received the games yet.

That must be so annoying as a backer. Though the price IGUK are charging seems really steep - £75 is that really the rrp? At that price with careful shopping around I could get the base game and expansions for less (minus the mini expansions).

Well, the Big Box was available for KS supporters pickup at Essen, but the additional content was not there - i saw mixed/contradicting reports on the additional tiles, and nobody got Mammut game. The Mayan calendar was not there for sure. And fact that is was also not shown in the updates (even though it was promised) lead me to conclusion that most likely the have the retail version available, but are still working on additional KS content - still I hope I'm wrong on this. Obviously they do not want to ship all things twice (EBB+KS addons) so we will wait...

I backed indirectly (6 pack) so I cannot see the updates for backers only but i got it forwarded. Still you can see comments. I really hope to play it still this year, but lost trust I had in Quuen Games. And i really want to be surprised

Expect a misprinted muscleman tile if you are buying a copy from the first print run. They have printed replacements, you just need to email queen of you need one.

I see this is starting to be shipped to US backers. Any idea if and when it will be available via normal distribution methods? I.e. willl my Flgs be able to order this from their queen distributor in the future? if so, when?

Unfortunately that won't help me here in South Africa. It needs to be available via normal distribution methods for my flgs to be able to stock it. Rises in shipping costs have made importing myself prohibitively expensive .

Now that the Kickstarter backers have (and are) receiving their games. Anyone seen this pop up in any FLGS or OLGS? Or heard any news on when they might be receiving their copies?
