How ironic.

People from Europe come to the Americas.

500 years later people in America make a game about it and ship it to people in Europe.

Looking forward to getting my pre-order soon!

Pre-orders should ship today as far as I know (perhaps tomorrow). Keith Blume will have to confirm.

Retailers in the UK and Australia should have games soon. The distributors in those countries have had their orders shipped to their freight forwarders. Depending on how fast they have chosen to have the freight go, you could see games as soon as a week from now.

I'm NOT forgetting the Dutch! I have been in contact with Pro Ludo pretty constantly over the last few months. They have expressed the desire to be the European "publisher" for AoE. If I understand their plan, they will be bringing in a substantial quantity of English language games that should arrive in late June or so, and they also plan to publish German, French, Spanish (and perhaps Dutch) versions in time for Essen.

Pro Ludo will be working directly with PS Games, one of the finest Dutch distributors of Games.

We are playing tomorrow night (received my finished copies via UPS today!), and I will try to remember to take some pics and post them!

By the way, the counters turned out really well! I'm so glad we re-ran them!

No update from Keith on the U.S. preorders... Here is hoping that it's sitting on my door after work today, or else I'm going into the long weekend without it!

Esdevium's games were at their freight forwarders (here in the U.S.) yesterday, awaiting a shipping document. If they air freight some of the games, they could have games in their warehouse next week.

You can order directly from Eaglegames.net

www.eaglegames.net


The extra cost of shipping is somewhat offset by the weak U.S. dollar vis-a'-vis the Euro.

O.k. I've ordered it.

But this order site is not perfectly suitable for foreign buyers.
I had to use any U.S. province in the - required - appropriate order-field for my order from Germany. It wasn't possible to overwrite it.

We contacted Pro Ludo about the availability of the 6st color in Europe, and they would get back to us. I'll inform you if I have any other info!

Will the English version (with or without the 6th colour) be available in Germany? If so, when? Rather than order from the US (added customs charges)I'd prefer to wait (but not too long!) and get it here, but I want an English edition.

I'll be forever tormented by this dillema

The extra color is a nice bonus, especially with such a large quantity of minis, but I can't bring myself to buy sight unseen, or pay the $18 over the lowest discounted price*

*assuming I place a large order with free shipping

Oh the torment of buying new games.
