Do we have any news about the Essen pre-order copies that were meant to be sent to us a couple of weeks after the convention?

I was about to send an email to Blackrock Games with the same question.
At Essen they said that it was going to take 2-3 weeks, but in another thread here on BGG it seems that the game was supposed to arrive in France the second week of November (hence now).

I would be nice to have an ETA from the publisher at this point.

I saw that other thread too but I think they were talking about delivery to stores in France ("Philibert" sounds like the name of a store?).

This story makes me a little nervous as I had to write my personal details on a piece of paper, so it's not like the odds of them losing track of it or sending to the wrong address are zero. I´d love to get the confirmation that we haven't been forgotten.

I don't mind getting the game later than expected, but I would really need to get it by Christmas this year.

Well, it's still listed as a pre-order on Philibert. (Yes, I've been watching vigilantly.)

I think it refers to a french website that sells board games. On their webpage for AYA they now say that they expect the game for the second half on November.
Still, it would be nice if someone could confirm that.

Hi Guys,

I'm Thibaut, one of the author and publisher of Aya.
I'm really really sorry but I've been fighting with the manufacturer for weeks to get answers about exact date of delivery.
What I'm sure today is that all materials have reached the manufacturer and that according to their last answer, the games will be delivered at our warehouse next wednesday.
I can only promiss you at this time that all pre-orders will be sent as soon as we receive them.
I'm sorry again about all this.

Thibaut

Hi Thibaut,

Thank you very much for the update and the fast reply!
I don't mind to have to wait a little bit more and I really appreciate the feedback on the status of the game.

Cheers!

I collected my copy of AYA and Haru Ichiban from the post office yesterday, but the games were out for delivery on December 1st (at least here in Germany).
The packaging was great and the games arrived in perfect conditions.

Now I only have to find the time to read the rules and play them!

Yeah I also heard the games had already hit the shelves in local stores. If you got yours in Germany then mine will probably come shortly. Fingers crossed!

Don't be too disappointed about the rules, the German ones are a mess. Not impossible to play because the errors are pretty obvious, but done by someone whose German was not as good as he thought or who did not care.

Hi, I got my copy right before Christmas so that was nice.
However, the sand timer was completely crossed from the inside when we opened the box, any idea who to ask to get a replacement? Thanks

Hi,
I'm Caroline from Blackrock Games, the distributor of AYA.
@Indalecio: please send me by private message your name and postal address so we will send you a replacement one. Sorry about this, it must have been dammaged in transportation.
