Slow with Kill Shakespeare and now slow with F&A. What's the deal?

My preorders are held up for this game which was supposed to have been released months ago.

How about update? Status?

Most OLGS should have it available for pre-order. Check miniture market.

Honestly I would wait. Pandasaurus said the game would be available in May. They have essentially been radio silent since with any updates based on substantial information. As usual they can't seem to manage to publish a game in a timely manner nor keep the hungry public informed. Both are a level of incompetency and unprofessionalism.

Agree, I have had this on pre-order since May and zip for updates. Seriously thinking of pulling my pre-order and spending the $$$ on something else that I can play NOW.

If there are publishing delays then at least let us know. We would much prefer an update than nothing at all.angry

On a different forum they stated that the miniatures came in messed up and that is the delay and they expected to have new shipment in September.

That's too bad about the miniatures. Still, I was hoping that the delay was because they were rethinking the design of the board and were going back to the 2nd edition artwork style.

They're probably completely redoing the gameboard after all of the feedback which was received. lol

I spoke to IDW and they told me that the reprints are on the way to their warehouses. Unfortunately they will not make it in time for Essen, which I was hoping for.

Hopefully it's a language issue but "reprints?" I thought the problem was with the miniatures. Unfortunately IDW has never been open and honest with their situation. Difference for me now is that I'm not a kickstarter backer so they don't owe me any updates but seems to me that they have a fan base waiting for this game and bad news is better than no news.

Sorry, reprint is the word I chose. Maybe I should have used 2nd Edition.

What do you mean with Kickstarter? If I'm not mistaken, the 2nd Edition of Fire & Axe was not funded through Kickstarter.

So it's not being changed from what has been shown so far and should be shipping out to retailers when?

Fire & Axe was not a kickstarter but a previous game / project by IDW was on Kickstarter and IDW was horrible with updates and missed deadlines.

They don't owe us an update since we are not "vested" backers but we are anxiously waiting and IDW still lacks the common sense to keep their fans up to date.

Their website says May 2015. They missed that.
Cool Stuff lists the game as available in October 2015.
I also have it included in a batch of games and its holding up the order. But, I guess I'll wait for October.

Hmm, when given the choice of ONE game for a summer birthday present from my girlfriend, I wanted to pre-order Fire & Axe: A Viking Saga, but instead went with Alien Frontiers 4.2 for all of the reasons everyone has mentioned already. I have been having fun playing AF, but would still be waiting for F&A.

I would prefer for the Publisher to get this one right instead of putting out a sub-par production that is going to need another reprint.

Providing updates from time to time have nothing to do with sub-par production.

Companies incapable of being open or sharing game product schedules make me question whether they are capable of actually publishing a game.

They have proven to be unreliable, schedule wise, for sure. First Kill Shakespeare and now F&A. Shame.

I just got my shipping confirmation for my pre-order from Cardhaus. Should finally be in my hands in a few days!

[Update: tracking info updated with an estimated delivery date: Monday. Apparently UPS maintains a fleet of rickshaws for Ground service these days.]
