My FLGS got several copies of Blood Rage in today, does that mean the Kickstarter editions should be arriving soon ?

Wonder if those were possibly some GenCon stock, as I don't think the first boat could have unloaded and delivered that fast.

For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

Wasn't CMON known for getting things into retail month+ ahead of backer copies?

I'm pretty sure ALL non GenCon stock is on the same two boats that just docked this week, whether they were KS or not. The GenCon copies were drop shipped for the convention.

Man that is weird, it seems everyone may get the game before the backers actually get theirs. Is this common?

If by "everyone" you mean "some people" then yes, that's common.

Just that fact that some copies are now in the wild is a good thing for everyone. Can't wait till this thing shows up.

It's not uncommon... I consider it a fair trade for the ks exclusive goodies, like the dividend on my investment...

You should ask them how they got them. My guess would be someone who works there just came back from Europe.

Not in my experience. Usually the only retailers that have theirs ahead of backers either: bought copies at a convention, or backed it on Kickstarter themselves (in which case they probably get copies ahead of some backers but after others).

CMON also states on the bottom of the KS that this *might* happen:

Please note that while we do our best to get you your rewards in a timely manner, you may not necessarily receive your rewards before the product makes it into distribution in your own country or before it's made available in conventions and special promotion opportunities. We hope that the special price and exclusive items you will get during the Kickstarter will make up for any such possible lag. However, if this is something that is not acceptable to you, please do not back this project, and instead wait for the retail release. Thank you for your understanding.

Don't see any KS extras, so could be the very first Retail stuff hitting distribution.

Nicely done! Florida is a 12 hour drive. I'm actually thinking about it.

Awesome! Now did they have any of the expansions? or just the base game?

Unfortunately just the base game.

Thanks! I just called Coolstuff and the guy said that the expansions are not slated to show up on the same day as the base game. So for those that may have a order containing all of the Blood Rage goodies you may want to separate the core game if you don't want to wait a month or more till the expansions are released.

I'm wondering if any other retailer has received any copies, so far the estimates (guesstimates?) I've seen online mention late November.
