The answer seems to be "NO".

To be honest, I'm wondering what answer I geekmailed the designer and asked it here. It's all very quiet when taking into account this is a new game.

Hi Jan,
I was assuming that the silence (the fact that nobody responded to your post)and the fact that Kickstarter Backers have not even received their copies yet, meant that probably it would not be available at Essen. If I may ask, what response did you get from the designer?

None, I didn't know the backers didn't receive it either. That's no fun indeed.

Delivery is on schedule. A majority of the games have shipped. Some backers had undeliverable addresses or did not include phone numbers and we have been contacting those backers individually as the fulfillment company kicks them back to us. Please keep in mind, there is a two-four week delivery time from China depending on which country the game is being delivered to.

The trouble with the September 13 update is that there have been other updates that seem to be misleading as to what the "delivery schedule" really is. For example:


August 10:
According to the demo on the BGG GenCon feed, they're being mailed out now.

From the Kickstarter Update page:

AUGUST 12
CRIMSON CREEK being shipped!
Game manufacturing has been completed and is being shipped out now!

AUGUST 29
SHIPMENT DELIVERY: CRIMSON CREEK is currently shipping out directly from the manufacturer WinGo Games.

SEPTEMBER 13
A majority of the games have shipped.

So on August 12 it was being shipped NOW! Then two weeks later on August 29 we are told that it is CURRENTLY being shipped. Two weeks after that on Sept. 13 we are told that a MAJORITY HAVE SHIPPED. Not all, but a majority. In that same September 13 update we are informed that it should take 2-4 weeks.

So it was being "shipped now" (7 weeks ago), then it was "currently shipping" (5 weeks ago). The 2-4 weeks window seems to have been missed.
