Just had word from the manufacturers, confirmed by the distributors, that this title - originally promised for September - will now not release until November, at the earliest angry

Cancelling my pre-order; I'm not supporting products that make so many false promises!

Be VERY surpised to see this one, any time before next year yuk

Ares Games did pretty much the same thing with Odyssey: Wrath of Poseidon.

I don't know why I thought it might be different this time angry

I thought it was meant to be released in August originally? I could be wrong, though.

Just cancelled my preorder. I needed this by October 20 anyway for a Hallowe'en themed cottage weekend. Maybe next year around this time I'll pick it up, assuming it's any good. Dice Tower is supposed to release their review this week I believe (Tom mentioned it in his most recent q&a). Curious what they have to say about it, as reviews have been mixed thus far.

Unfortunately, that is a HUGE setback. Granted its only another month, but its the most important month. Everyone interested in this, myself included, wanted it for Halloween themed get togethers. Who wants to play this during Christmas time ?

Im 100% passing now and will check it out next year. I expect a large percent of people will also follow suit. Thats a shame tho.... but the theme and this October release window needed to coincide or else its not really worth it.

I'm still in for this. I'm very disappointed, especially because this is holding up an order of stuff I am really wanting. I guess I will have to re-prioritize things... again.

I was really excited for this as a Halloween game also. Not sure I can wait. I really don't want it holding up my Arkham Horror TCG preorder.

Unless someone is creating all the individual components themselves, publishers do need to rely on manufacturing plants to actually make the game. If something happens with that plant and things are delayed it's out of the publishers hands. They can't just go down the street to someone else so their hands are tied.

No matter how disappointed and frustrated you may feel I'm willing to bet the publisher and game designers feel it worse. No one wants a game to be delayed.

You can take my game… when you pry my cold, dead fingers off the board!

I wonder if this has to do with fixing the board that was mis-punched? Either way, I wouldn't fault the publisher too much... release delays happen all the time with board games. There are just too many variables that make dates more of a guessing game than anything else. It certainly does stink that it won't make Halloween though.

I just wish they would say something. I'm sure they are upset about the delay too because it will cost them big money missing the Halloween date.

As of September 23rd they were still saying October release so if this changed it must have just changed. So hopefully there will be an announcement soon. If they have a good reason for the delay I think people will be more forgiving.

Hi all, not false promises, but hard work only for fix bug on the maniac-screen and for this little inconvenience (factory problem) the game release in end of october/first half of November, because the pubblisher don't want put in your hands a game with bug, but a only perfect game.
My advice: not to cancel pre-orders because the price is very affordable (preorder) and I think for this game so special is worth having a little patience. Escuse me for my terrible english, but I hope you understand. heart

Dont get me wrong... Im still interested in the game, but considering how many new games still are to come out soon, plus the usual backlog of older games, makes it easy to wait for this one, considering it wont be available during the most fun time to get to play it. Might as well wait then, theres no rush, I have LfW to play in the meantime.

Was there a signed promise-to-release-document that I missed on all pre-orders? Misplaced anger methinks IMHO.

The horror! zombie

Guys, sometimes games get delayed.

And much like Horror movies are not scary only on Halloween, I'm sure this game will also be fun on other days.

Didn't the Gencon version have a misprint on the maniac tracker?

It was backwards. But I think the company said they would replace all the misprinted ones.
