In your world, I have another name. You must learn to know me by it. That was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.

So, this is supposed to be available at Gen Con, but what of brick & mortar and/or online retail release? Anybody know how these things work, or perhaps some inside info on this particular title?

Is it supposed to be available at GenCon? I thought they said they might only have a few copies, primarily for gameplay.

Or maybe I'm thinking of the map of the 'Verse.

http://fireflythegame.com/ says "in stores in September". The usual suspects are taking pre-orders, of course.

Perhaps you're right. I have heard many things here on the forums.

Not sure how I missed that line. I've read through that page at least twice before. Thanks.

From the gf9 WebSite:

We’ve dodged Reavers and bluffed the Alliance, finally confirming today that we will have a limited number of copies of the forthcoming Firefly expansion, Firefly: The Game – Kalidasa for sale at Gen Con! These are the very first printed copies of the game and this is your chance to get a copy months ahead its general release! Venture out to the Rim looking for new work and new adventures, but beware the long arm of the Alliance, the relentless Operative knows no bounds!

I've just heard from BoardGameExtras in the UK:

Quote:
First up I'm afraid there is confusion over the release date for the Kalidasa expansion. It was originally meant to be released this month however, we have now heard from the UK distributors that Gale Force Nine have moved the UK/Europe release date til after Spiel essen (the big German games fair) so we won't see til late October now, my apologies especially to those who have preordered the expansion and are now having to wait longer.

Does this apply to the new Verse map and the new resin ship models? Are they going to be all released on the same date?

I don't feel quite so bad now for paying a LOT more than retail to buy my copy on eBay

The Whole Damn 'Verse map has definitely shipped in the UK - I have mine already.

No idea about the resin ships.

Now that we're in the release month... Anyone know if there's been a street date projected yet? I have a game day on the 29th, and am wondering if I'll get a copy in time....

Where? Haven't found it on ANY UK board game online store. I did find the Verse map though, so it's confusing.

Saw it in Melbourne, Australia. We are generally the last place to get English printed games, so if we have it, then must be available elsewhere! You're right though, haven't seen in online here, only in store.

At least some of the GF9 staff are based in NZ (or at least their customer service email on their website is a co.nz one) so it's less surprising if the antipodes see copies of their stuff first...

I just got a message from Cool Stuff that my order of Kalidasa has shipped.

And the Cool Stuff web site says they have 20+ in stock.

I got my CSI announcement last night. I'll be very happy to get my shipment of 7 items -- all pre-orders at the time, Kalidasa was the last hold-out.
