Any word on where we can order the limited edition? Looks the CSI version is the standard at this point.

No preorders. Get it when it shows up.

Are there any pictures yet of the limited edition? Does anyone know what the wooden bits look like for it yet?

Just received the CSI email which included Ships pre-orders and went looking, but don't see it for sale on Treefrog's site. Fingers crossed it will still be available as apparently some have already been sold:

"Wallace did not want to lose those who had already paid for the limited version of the game..."
http://www.boardgamenewsonline.com/index.php/the-news/296-ma...

"Treefrog was due to produce the limited edition version, for which we had taken advance payments."
http://icv2.com/articles/news/view/31026/ships-sinks-mayfair...

I missed the London limited edition and hope not to repeat that.

Treefrog explain the availability on their own website, which should be your first port of call for info about Treefrog games, I guess
Quote:
Only six hundred subscriptions will be available from Treefrog. A further six hundred copies of each game will be available for purchase via the internet once the game is produced and three hundred will be available to buy at Essen. Treefrog will not be taking pre-orders for these games. If you want to guarantee getting a copy of each game then you need to subscribe. The subscription window will be open until May 31st 2014.

I found it, but I'd hope you'd cut me some slack for not finding it immediately - it's not listed to buy:
https://www.treefroggames.com/buy-games

...and I didn't find much on the Ships page:
https://www.treefroggames.com/ships

It's not really my first thought to check "Subscriptions 2014" for a game that is not yet widely available. Also:

Ugh.

This is the third game from the 2014 subscription plan, it's true. But I thought it was mentioned somewhere that the remaining limited editions would be available?

I believe that CSI had the limited edition of Onward to Venus, which was from the same subscription....maybe it'll show up

Read my previous post for an explanation.

Website says that 1500 limited will be produced, so we should have 600 copies available outside of Essen, and subs, somewhere...

I want this game... a lot. I can't decide if I should just order it now, since I've been waiting almost 2 years, or if I should wait for the limited edition.

I only just found out that it was available from CSI, exclusively. They're not my normal channel, or I might have learned about it sooner.

I can't decide! cry

The limited edition of the game has a completely different cover illustration. And "Limited edition" is printed in big letters right under the name of the game.

Most of the components in the limited edition are wooden. When they are made from cardboard in the standart edition.

When you see pictures of a board with wooden ship figures in player colors on it, you know it is the limited edition.

Limited Edition comes with wood player tokens, yes.

What was a little down surprise to me was the gold tokens also in wood, but looking identical to the player disc tokens, and very much alike the yellow player colour.

I haven't seen this in person, but there are a few pics in the image gallery that seem to show gold tokens that are easily distinguishable from the yellow player:

The golden tokens were replaced at Essen before demo games and selling copies to customers (cp. this post). Therefore pictures from Essen can’t show any old tokens.

Good to know, and according to the linked post, the new tokens should be included. I guess I'll be calling first before placing an order to make sure that is the case.

You might change your mind when you see the $25 premium for the Limited edition vs. the €5 premium at Essen ...

I just spoke with someone at CSI and - after checking stock and speaking with someone else - he reported that there was not a separate bag of gold tokens included, so unless they've been reshrinked in the box it sounds like you'll only get the smaller orange tokens.

This is unfortunate. Between this and the token issue, I won't be ordering at this point.

In this image you see the discs in player colors. Yellow, blue, red and green. The orange discs were meant to be money. Treefrog gave out the golden, bigger discs as replacements in Essen to me.

This is the email Treefrog sent to subscribers about the coins:

Julia @ Treefrog wrote:

SHIPS October Update

There will be a slight delay in shipping Ships out to you as we have found that the gold coins in the game done by Whatz are not actually a gold colour. As Martin says this will damage game play, we have had to order replacement coins for all of the games. These have been done by Ludofact and will be delivered to us in Essen from where we will quickly bag them and send them to the fulfilment companies. I am really sorry for the delay.

Julia


I think anyone buying the limited edition should feel confident they'll have the "gold" coins and not orange.

Although I suspect Treefrog will make it right, this really doesn't address how or if I'll be able to get those replacements if I place my order at CSI today.

Another email from Treefrog today stated that CSI was mistakenly sending copies without the replacement parts or designer signature decals and it is being addressed.

We had an arrangement with someone at CSI in the US to deal with shipping your games out. This person has since left the company and apparently did not hand over information on our behalf regarding the shipping out of the games for you. This only came to light in the last couple of days. The Treefrog subscription games arrived at CSI (along with copies that they had ordered and paid for) but with no instructions to do otherwise, they began selling them.

I have emailed them urgently to stop selling as the limited edition games are minus the extra bag of gold coins and the signed sticker, and they should send out the subscriber copies first as previously arranged.
