I believe VPG just approved the final proofs. The printing will start "soon" and shipping to the US will be at least a month. Then a few weeks to get things shipped out. So, I would estimate March/April at the earliest at this point. This is just my speculation however, so if anyone knows any better, please jump in.

Side note: It is unknown if there will be any copies of this available via retail. Your best bet will be through the VPG website, and even that is not a certainty. Good luck.

I hope so. This is the #1 thing on my lift for my April Birthday.

According to the "When" post, Alan already stated back in early Dec. that it will be the end of the first quarter/beginning of the second quarter 2016. So many new "when is this coming threads" even though there are a few on here already, just gotta do a little bit of reading to find out. whistle

Anticipation for this is overwhelming, I cannot wait either.

Has this been officially said or are we talking rumors and hearsay? Do you have a recent link?

That's what the man said.

Apparently, the presses have not yet started running in China on ZEDS, and I'm quite vexed about that that. We will be talking to our printer today (they should be back at work this week) in an effort to light a fire under them and get this ball rolling. This is taking far too long.

Thank you Alan, for always being active on these threads and keeping us in the loop. Any comments as to the rumor above about how many extra copies will be available to the people that were not apart of the kickstarter but are just as eagerly awaiting the retail/VPG release?

You know, since they haven't started printing yet, that number is, strangely enough, still subject to change!

We've got some fast decisions to make!!

Well I did do some reading but the last thread was over 2 months ago, that's why I asked if there was an updated release? whistle

Thanks for the info Alan!, sorry you are having "communication problems" with the presses

I know I missed backing, but wanted to mention that while this is VPG's first Kickstarter, this kind of news is not new. It happens all the time for lots of Kickstarters, so if it is your first Kickstarter try not to worry about it.

For those who missed the Kickstarter - VPG just posted the other day on their Nemo's War KS that if you back Nemo's War they will give you a code to be able to order Dawn of the Zeds 3rd Edition at the kickstarter price.

Totally get that, but check out Nemo's War, you might want to jump in on that as well, it's going to be great.

Plus shipping. I'm afraid that we can't do "free shipping" on ZEDS anymore, so let's be up front about that.

No one says you have to. Granted, it appears that we didn't print enough extra copies beyond the ZEDS KS backers, but there should be some that make it to stores I should think. It will be a near-run thing, but for a while, I hope, ZEDS will be available in stores.

Does getting a code from the Nemo's War Kickstarter guarantee we will be able to get a copy off the website?

I missed the Dawn of the Zeds Kickstarter and really want to make sure I get a copy.

I would like to know if this is the case as well. One thing that helped my decision to kickstart Nemo's War 2 this weekend was the chance to get a copy of Dawn of the Zeds 3rd edition. I would be sorely disappointed if I did not get the chance to snag a copy upon release.

I would think it has to, it would be incredibly dumb to get a coupon to pay for something at a slight discount a year or more from now (when the next print run comes through)

Given that you knew how many you needed for the KS backers, I am curious why you didn't print enough over that for full distribution. Is it a cash flow thing?

No, it's a we-are-also-offering-Zeds-to-Nemo's-War-backers thing.

I have a feeling they might suck up a lot of the copies that would have made it to stores...

It's just a hunch. We won't know until the Zeds arrive.

Did you ever find an answer to this? I live in Sweden, if I kickstart Nemo's War thats 81 US dollars including shipping.

What will total cost be with shipping for DotZ3d be? I'm thinking to much to be justifiable.
