Dear Fantasy Flight,

I keep checking your "upcoming" page, and when I see new things that are on their way towards stores my heart jumps! and then I realize however, that Imperial Assault is still not on that list... its still on the boat... You know quite well what will happen if I don't get this game pre-Christmas... I didn't get this tear drop prison tattoo on my face for no reason...

You have been warned.

Sincerely,

Lord Graham T. Richardson III

In all seriousness, I don't believe it is in their hands at this point. I haven't found record of an S.S.FFG or S.S.CPetersen, that is a cargo ship, carrying boardgames miniature games. (and I don't think they had enough time to get this on the S.S.Asmodee)

I can't fault FFG for not being able to deliver a game as soon as I would like. But, I really have a problem with their failure to communicate with customers and/or retailers.

For goodness sake - how hard is it to post a few sentences on their website?! Here's a template if it will help:

"Sorry about the delay; US delivery is being held up by _______; hope to have things sorted out by (insert rough estimate). Happy holidays."

C'mon FFG - Step up to the damned mic and say something already! yuk

It's their stated policy that they won't do this, as they used to announce specifics and didn't like the results.

Also, the game is still ahead of schedule according to what they announced, so I don't see them apologizing for a delay.

This is different. For 1, we know distributors have had the game sitting for a week now. It's also one of the biggest releases of all time. Also people need to know if it's gonna get here by christmas.

Dear Fantasy Flight,

I am writing in support of Lord Graham T. Richardson III. If both he and I do not receive satisfaction within a fortnight, I will be forced to challenge you to pistols at dawn!

It wasn't due till February next year so a few months early is pretty damn sweet. Even in the UK it's out of stock in a lot of UK stores. Hope you pre-ordered. You might still be waiting for a restock.

Something is wrong, since Local FLGS told me, they will have several boxes of Imperial Assault next week.

Latvia is the last place I expect new games to appear.

Weirdly I've found the Descent expansions tended to hit UK stores about a week before the US. I got Imperial Assualt on Friday so my entirely non-scientific estimate puts it at this week in the US.
