When is the anticipated release date?

And can I pre-order?

Late this year, or early next year I believe. CoolStuffInc has it for pre order, so I bet most OLGS's do as well.

FFG said "October" on twitter. That's the best estimate we have so far.

Done.

Pre-ordered two core sets.

Thank you both!

Minature Market also has a pre-order up too. I've not found any Canadian online retailers with a pre-order for it yet though. Maybe in the next couple of weeks.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

October or November. Definitely this year unless something horrible goes wrong, and they decide to redesign it as a versus game instead...

Is this fear based on some nightmare you had last night or is there some information that leads to believe that might happen?

He is likely echoing what happened with Star Wars LCG.

Do you guys think a pre-order holds any value in the context of priority?

I mainly pre-ordered so I don't have to think about it and the game will arrive at my door but now i'm curious if i'll get that awful email stating something like

"your order is on back order. please be patient"

Don't count on it

Fantasy Flight doesn't attend Essen

Dealers may have *some* copies, but unlikely.

Last year, around the same time, they released Game of Thrones LCG 2nd edition. Some dealers had a few copies, which sold out on the first day.

If it is a new game and not yet in German, they usually have some copies.

That is pretty much normal with any new release, that isn't quite released, yet.

They get some copies flown in, while the bulk is still on the ocean.

Those do not last long... (and many copies are sold on wednesday, already, when the fair isn't even open to the public.)

So, I wouldn't expect to find this at any other time than thursday (before noon), if at all.

Bye
Thanee

I feel like that's a good bet. I know someone who lives closeby and will attend Arkham Nights if they have one - I just need to decide whether it's worth paying full retail on 2 copies plus shipping versus the discounted online price and free shipping. It sounds like it might hit the streets not long afterward so it's a close call... Need to get better dates I think.

Of course, the reason why that happened with SW is because people wanted to be able to play Dark Side.

If you do happen to want to play Arkham Horror versus, that game already exists. It's called Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game.
