I vaguely recall something about Jan/Feb for Canada and EU but I can't remember for US.

Depending if you are in the first or second shipment and customs and such. Late December/January maybe even February.

First container will arrive at a US Port soon (can't remember the exact date they said, but I'm sure someone here on BGG remembers)

Second container bound for US and all the Americas is on the ocean as well, but won't hit the US until probably closer to Christmas, which means, those backers may not get their game until the week of New Years, I'm guessing.

Third container bound for EU and will likely arrive in Germany early to mid-January (I'm assuming the transit to Germany is a few days, maybe even a week longer than crossing the Pacific for the US bound vessels). Which means that, depending on how long it takes to go from Germany to your home with the EU carriers, you will likely get it in mid to late January. We are really hoping that every single backers gets it before February, and I believe that to be the case. The longest part of the journey has got to be the vessel. The journey from port to your home is probably no more than 1 to 2 weeks no matter what (and that includes more than transit time, as there is taking it off the boat, trucking to the distribution center which puts labels on each package, then mailing it by local delivery, etc.).

So the EU boat is actually on its way?
Great!
If it left early Dec, it will probably arrive early Jan, then get held up by customs for around two weeks, then fullfillment for approx 1-2 weeks. (Well, that's the CMON games schedule anyway, for Dogs of War and Arcadia Quest.)
Sounds like end of Jan is feasible.

Arthur,

When you say second shipment to the US. Just wondering where Gencon backers (pre-orders?) reside. Is there any possibility we could be in the first shipment? If not, is it pretty certain we are in the second US shipment?

I copied the following from kickstarter update 155 which should explain the contents of the ship.

Quote:
The initial shipment is in three separate cargo containers. Here is the container schedule as it stands now:

The first container is headed for the USA. These are USA-only copies and only for kickstarter backers.

The second and third containers leave at the same time, on separate ships. One goes to both North and South America and the other is for Europe. These shipments include both Cthulhu Wars backers and pre-order sales.

If you live outside North or South America, or Europe, we have arranged for shipping directly to you from China starting at about the same time containers 2 and 3 leave China.

Everyone should receive tracking numbers when Cthulhu Wars reaches the regional distribution centers and it is handed over to your local carrier. From there it heads straight to your home.

It's clear from what Arthur has said before and from looking at the numbers that the second shipment will be big enough to cover all Americas Kickstarters left over after the first shipment and also all Americas pre-orders.

Don't believe the timetable.

Reaper just updated their KS with this: "All of our product from China except for the last two containers is either in our hand or at a Customs warehouse awaiting clearance. However, due to recent labor situations on the West Coast having a domino effect on everything, we no longer have a timetable for the delivery of the final shipment of two containers. We have been told that our previous timetables had to be altered due to these circumstances, and no new timetables have been given, as data is still coming in and the situation seems to change daily."

Reaper Miniatures had some issues with the miniatures, and this added months (?) to the schedule. A quality control issue with dice can add a month delay (Dice for Arkham Horror). A random customs inspection can add weeks to shipping (Robotech KS). Truckers get paid by the mile, so *short* shipments can wait weeks before someone will deliver the product (Myth KS). There's a good reason why retail games releases are estimated by the quarter...
