I haven't seen this listed anywhere but CoolStuffInc site and even there it has a vague release date of just "November". Anyone aware when stores might have this or if there is a more specific date of release other than just November for this game?

Thanks for update, Jerry! Any chance if you know anything more specific besides "November"? Is it on a ship? Is it possible it will be after Nov. 30th?

Well, now November has been changed to December. Any chance you can share more info that would make me feel confident it'll ship before Christmas if I were to order now?

UPADATE...
Well, it is past holidays now and the ETA has been changed to Jan./Feb. even at CSI. Anyone know info on the delay?

I have a feeling the delay and lack of response has something to do with the fairly recent revelation that there's now a English version being published by ABACUSSPIELE.
So maybe Brain Games isn't publishing it for US release anymore?

And now... listed as Feb/March 2016!
What in the world is up with the changing the ETA every month since last fall?

Yeah this is pretty poor planning on the company's part. Makes you want to just say screw it, I'm not going to support them.

Hi!

Sorry to have not responded earlier. I just noticed these comments.
We are a small company and yes, our planing and managing the market all over the world could more effective, no doubt. But we are learning from every mistake

Both CSI and Funagain bought Game of Trains from us in Essen 2015. They were planing to have it available in their stores by the end of the year. I have no idea why they still have not been selling them.

As for our plans for US - we will launch most of our games for US market at GenCon, including Game of Trains. We will be operating in US directly. Abacus will be selling in Germany, Brain Games USA in US.

Best,

Egils

Any update on this? GenCon is long behind us now and there's still no sign of this game at any of the major OLGS. (FunAgain has it marked as a pre-order but that's it)

Hi,
The games are in US since GenCon, but since we are new to US market, it takes longer for us to get them to the shelves. And to honest I never expected it would take that long. Sorry for that.
But most of the Distributors have their order made and I would suppose the game is already on the price lists and/or pre-order forms for stores.
But meanwhile the game is available at Miniature Market and Amazon.com.
thanks for the patience!
Egils
