Like many who would be in this forum I threw money at splotter as soon as TGZ and Indonesia preorders were up. I was just curious as we approach october if there's been any update on timelines or tweaks to the rereleases I may have missed.

All I have read was Essen timeframe, which is mid October. I would think that they will ship out either just before or just after. They may be pretty busy leading up to Essen but sending everything out afterwards.

Dear Splotter customer,

I'm mailing you to inform you that a part of your existing order for Indonesia and/or The Great Zimbabwe will be shipped to you soon. In this order, you have also ordered another item (for instance an upgrade set or a different game).

Unfortunately both The Great Zimbabwe and Indonesia suffered some delays due to components that weren't delivered yet. We will ship a whole batch of these games to Funagain Games in the US once they are finished. They will take over the process of shipping the ordered game(s) to your individual address. You'll be notified by them once this happens and they will include a tracking code for your convenience.

In the meantime, your orders also contain other items and as we have just recently decided to ship Zimbabwe and Indonesia differently, there is nothing that stops us from getting the orders that are available right now shipped to you! So that's exactly what we will do. A few minutes ago I processed the complete list of orders that can be shipped to our packers and they will get to sending those as soon as they can, probably somewhere next week!

If you have a question about your specific order, please reply to this email with your question and please include your order number so I can look it up for you!

I hope this helps!

Regards,
Juriaan

Thanks! I am guessing I didn't get the email due to only ordering those two items (and so no lartial shipment)

I had heard the reprints meant no new game this year, perhaps I was incorrect.

Yes, I've heard about the map and upgraded components.

No new game this year. Reprints or a new game. It'll be 2017 or '18 for any new game.

I am hoping for a reprint of Antiquity in 2017!

I think we have a few weeks on that. If Splotter just shioped from europe it has to cross the pond.

I'm hoping the new Indonesia board will be offered separately.

I am pretty certain that they have already reported that this will not be happening.

I wish they would, since there's a gameplay change and not merely an aesthetic change as with the other pieces.

I believe one problem with releasing the board separately is that they changed all the icons, so the icons printed on the new board won't match your chits from the old version.

There's also logistics and pricing. The set of first edition owners who care enough to get the new board and would be willing to fork over the money required is likely very very small. That will make production costs higher and therefor prices higher. Add in that the board won't liley be stocked by any retailers so you add shipping costs on top of everything reducing the set even further.

It is probably not too far off the mark to say someone seeking a new board might be better off just buying the whole new edition from a local/online retailer neither them.

Other thread addresses this, apparently the only shipment to get delayed was the preorders, they should be at funagain in the next week as they are enroute from Portland, which they were misshipped to, and then delayed by the inclement weather in that area. There is the whole thing with an apology from splotter, but i am on mobile and too lazy to link.
