Title says all. Wasn't it supposed to be released right after Gen Con?

We just got our stock today and it's streetdated for the 15th in Canada. US can't be far behind since I saw a US distributor posting that they were starting to ship now too.

I can only hope! But I haven't seen any online GS updating their estimated dates so far...

Yes! the 15th as in TOMORROW!

Our store will be able to put our product live at midnight--any other canadian retailer that got theirs in stock has to adhere to waiting until the 15th as well to put the game on their shelves or remove pre-order tags on their webstore.

Apparently, this was only true for Canadian retailers. All US based online stores still have it as a pre-order as of today, August 16. What's up with this uncoordinated North American release? Could it be customs related?

Asmodee's NA branch is based in Quebec, makes sense Canada gets it first.

If anyone can post updates when they see this game available in the States, or delivered from an OLGS, I'd appreciate it! I've heard that this game has been in stock for a long while so I'm not sure why the delay to release it. It's still listed as a preorder on all game stores with a late August, early September release date.

Seconded. My copy of Discoveries is currently holding up a friend's order. When I saw it released in Canada on 8/15, I was hoping that within a week it would be out in the U.S. Any information is appreciated. Thank you.

Yup, I have an order that I'm super excited to get in my hands but it's held up by Disoveries which I was sure would be out by now.

It's really bizarre. I remember hearing all of these complaints from Europe and Canada about having to wait for GenCon because apparently the game was ready a month before. I assumed it would be a global release at GenCon, now it seems like they're making the States wait for Essen?! Makes no sense to me. If the game is ready and in people's hands, why do they keep delaying the street date?

I'm very tempted to cancel my order at this point.

I checked with a couple of the big retailers in the States, no one has a firm date like Canada and Europe had. They've just been told that the release date will be "sometime between now and the end of September."

If it could be potentially another month, I think I have to cancel my pending order and just hope I can get my hands on it sometime later in the year. Of course, it's probably going to get released as soon as I do this... so you guys can thank me later.

yeah might have to pull out on my preorder too, so it doesn't hold everything else on that order back that long. Thanks for inquiring for us!

I sent an email to ludonaute asking about a US release date. Just heard back from them this morning. They said, "Discoveries should be available very soon. I would say next week in most of shops."

Great news, thanks guys! I held off canceling my pre-order as I went away on a short vacation. Was just double checking today before pulling it. Looks like I'll hold out a little longer.

it's showing in stock at amazon, but also: "Estimated Delivery Date: Sept. 28 - Oct. 9 when you choose Standard at checkout." So I don't think it'll be available today
