Just wondering if anyone knows a release date for this game yet? I've checked the FantasyFlight website but couldn't see anything.

It's supposed to debut at Arkham Nights: October 14-15. Retail availability should follow quickly.

3rd/4th week of October is a pretty safe bet. FFG is typically on schedule.

I have pre-ordered this in the UK from Chaos Cards and have an order confirmation advising expected delivery is by the 28th Oct. This would seem to fit in with it's debut on the 14th/15th Oct.

Probably only for demo.

Amazon says December 30th but everyone says October... Well if it comes out this month I'll have to try and get it this looks like a great game for a lonely gamer.

I've been trying to find an official release date for this and finally started calling stores today. One of our stores in Nashville will have the game on the 15th available in case anyone was wondering an official date they can start selling. It always drives me nuts waiting on something to get shipped so I was hoping I could find a local stores to sell it near the 15th. Score!

What about Dunwich? How long do FFG normally wait before putting out the first expansion to an LCG?

The FFG site indicates that it is "At the Printer", so I'm guessing early to mid December? Total and complete speculation on my part.

I'm expecting Dunwich to be out in time for Christmas, usually it's a couple months after the core for the first expansion.

Which store in Nashville? I live there and the ones I have checked in with aren't sure when they are getting it. Just curious.

I asked and the shopkeeper of my LGS said "Um FFG suck at having consistency with talking about release dates..."

I'm fairly friendly with the primary purchaser at my FLGS and their response to FFG releases is often, "We don't know until it hits our doorstep." They seem a little less precise, or maybe forthcoming, with official release dates before it's on the truck locally.

I do know, at least, that my shop has only ever released an FFG product on a Thursday. Not sure if that's shipping arrivals or release dates, but Thursday is the day.

The Game Cave in Hermitage said their expected incoming date is the 15th. He did say there was an outside chance that it wouldn't be available until the 17th though.

I also called Roll the Dice, but David (the owner) wasn't in and his cashier minion was clueless.

Good luck in your search. Hopefully we both get a copy locally.

Thursday is the day here as well, and also when they put announcements on their site for new products. My (hopeful) guess would be the 20th (Thursday after Arkham Nights), but it could be the next week. I find it a little ironic that so many people say stuff about FFG having "imprecise" release dates, when the whole reason they stopped giving exact dates was to avoid missing them. laugh

I think David is sick, as of last night cashier minion didn't seem 100% sure he would be in today, you might want to shoot him an email.

If you are in the boro area you can also try Grand Adventures or Outer Limits. I'd be surprised if they weren't going to carry the game as well.

I'm in south Nashville so I am able to reach the Murfreesboro shops as well as the Nashville ones. It's surprising but cool to have two different Nashville replies to this thread. I often feel like BGG is somewhere I go to talk to non-area gamers. It's good to know other locals are here.
