Hi guys,

one simple question,: will this game be available for retail at this years Essen Spiel? It takes place 13th to 16th October.
I remember that there were small quantities of Imperial Assault and XCom available in the past years, so maybe this year as well?

greetings, Julian

I'm guessing no, as the initial availability is supposed to be at the Arkham Nights event in Minnesota on the same weekend, and FFG has announced nothing about Essen.

Well Asmodee own FFG, so I guess you never know...
My guess is it seems unlikely if it is being unveiled at Arkham Nights, but I would also be very interested to know when we can expect to see it!

It might. Wasnt that big star wars game released there in 2014 without prior notice?

If FFG are still making Star Wars games in 20024...
I probably wouldn't be surprised!

Do you mean as a prototype or the retail version?
At Heidelberger homepage it states: available 11/2016

As a fun detail: star wars destiny is a collectible card game that FFG announced in the same day as this one that WILL be on sale at essen. Since they don't say anything about AH my guess is that we won't see much of it

Missed opportunity, they could have sold a ton of those games in Essen and made a lot of gamers happy.

As we are now closer to Essen, is this still the case? No availability to buy the game in Essen at all? I heard a rumour that someone in some online blog had confirmed it would now be available at Essen...?

I can't as it was a verbal conversation with a mate who had seen someone in some online blog/review say something along these lines, as they are going to Essen. I have no idea who. I only asked here in case anyone else can confirm it as I want them to pick me up a copy - not trying to spread rumours myself!

I asked Heidelberger Spieleverlag last week, and they could not confirm anything. Maybe they get some advanced copies (they had some last year for A Game of Thrones LCG 2nd Edition), but maybe not.

I preordered my copies in england now, so I get them end of october, when it gets released. If they happen to have them in Essen, I can always buy another two boxes and give those to a friend then, I guess.

I definitely expect to see the Arkham Horror LCG german demo around again, though, which they had at the german nationals weekend last month.

Bye
Thanee
