Has anyone heard confirmation on when pre-orders from Plaidhat will be shipped / delivered?

They're going to have it at Gencon. My experience with my Plaid Hat preorders the last two years for Gencon releases is you'll likely get it on the week or within two weeks of Gencon.

However, that was before the F2Z acquisition... and now the Asmodee acquisition. So YMMV.

They have tentatively said late August/early September. Many people feel like they're promising later so as not to have a riot if they don't meet a specific deadline, but I really don't know. I'd say, just expect September and be pleasantly surprised if it shows up tomorrow, haha.

There's no confirmation to answer this question, just a lot of "late August/September" responses in various places, mostly Twitter.

PS. Cosmere.

So basically anywhere from any day to 2 months from now. Great.

Nice to see someone finally get my reference! Can't wait for Stormlight 3.

If it helps, they started out strictly saying September, now they are saying late August/September, so that makes me believe they got increasingly better news. I'm betting first week or so of September.

Mistborn game will be here before Stormlight 3, so that's slightly more relevant to these forums. Also, a Lift story this fall.

You and me both.... Stormlight 3 delayed until 2017 hurts more than hearing about delays for 7th Continent...

I'm okay with waiting another month for the game but I'm hoping after GenCon someone puts up a (spoiler-free) unboxing of SeaFall so I can drool at what's inside.

They won't last a half hour. Even though GC peeps get them early I wouldn't want to do the mad dash to get my copy.

Should we try to math this up? It says 4 "pcs"/ctn on the box, and also says Total Number of "Pieces": 13 on the sticker. My guess is one of those pieces means games and one of the pieces means boxes, haha. So 4x13? 52 copies for sale at GenCon. That's even less than I thought!

The most recent official answer I've seen regarding preorder ship dates, from PHG support:

"While I do not have a specific date, we intend to start fulfilling US preorders in late August/early September. After that, it should reach retailers in a month or so. again, these are all rough estimates."

So sounds to me like early-to-mid October for orders from anyone other than PHG (after adding some shipping time from the retailer). But that's all estimated.

And yeah, sounds like 52 copies to me -- assuming there aren't multiple pallets, each with a dozen or so crates or 4 games. I choose to hope for the latter. Of course, it might well be that fewer will be for sale. For example, some might be used as demo copies or prizes.

I am pretty sure they said 300 or 400 copies in the last podcast but I may be misremembering.

That would be a LOT better than 52 (or less)! Hope you're right...

Never having been to Gen Con (but knowing it's much bigger than Origins), is 300-400 copies a little or a lot? When they said limited copies, I imagined 100-200, maybe. Then again, it's a big game so I guess limited is relative.

The pre-order page still has it listed as being assembled at the manufacturer. If that's accurate, I'm guessing late September is more likely for pre-orders.

Last year Gen Con had more than 60,000 attendees. If that remains constant and they have 400 copies, then only 0.67% of people attending will get a copy. Now, maybe only 2% of people want a copy, but I'd guess there will be plenty who want one but don't get one.

Based on what it says on the PHG website, I would be surprised if they have 300 copies.

Quote:
SeaFall: SeaFall will be demoed (we'll be demoing a tweaked version of the prologue) and we'll have a VERY limited number of copies for sale.

Dead of Winter: The Long Night: The standalone Dead of Winter expansion will be demoed and for sale at our booth as well. We'll have a lot more of this than we will of SeaFall, but still... If you want it, hurry. (But be safe!)

I might have been confused by their talk about how many Dead of Winter and Ashes copies they sold in previous years. Note that they sold out on DoW first day in like maybe 4 hours with that many copy and the buzz was not as high as Seafall. I'm thinking they could sold out *real* quick.

"Very limited" seems to confirm the 52 number to me.

This game won't become available (except possibly a very limited number of copies at GenCon) until at least September 1st. Anybody care to wager against that statement? I'm always happy to make easy money....

Since they've said they will be shipping preorders from their own site "late August or early September" plus shipping time, sounds right to me. While it's theoretically possibly that they are padding their estimate and might end up shipping early, I think that's unlikely since they've also mentioned that they will accept preorders through mid-August.

So no, you can't have my money. PHG can, though...

Ug. Looks like I'll have to run to their booth when the doors open. Hopefully the VIGs won't have gotten them all...

ONLY 140 copies of Seafall will be available at Gen Con. They'll be handing out numbers or something like that to people wanting to buy it. From the horses mouth! (at the 17:10 minute mark)

Great catch!! 140 copies, and they will probably all disappear in the first hour for the VIGs on Thursday.
