I mentioned it somewhere else but I can't remember now whether in these forums or in the base game forums so I just wanted to announce that Experimental Meds has been released.

The game arrived at the US Amazon dealer on Nov 13th and was shipped to me the next day... so, it's really out. :-)

Don't have notification it was shipped from CoolStuffInc. I guess next time I'll just go with Amazon.

It's worth an Amazon 3rd party seller, not prime and it's $14 higher.

You underestimate how much I want this ASAP.

Should've gone to Essen

But yes, I'm quite excited to get it as well

I pre-ordered from my FLGS. I'm going by there at lunch today and I'll see if they have it now.

I'll update here with results after lunch (US CST).

**Update** Experimental Meds was not in today's shipment and the distributor for my FLGS still shows "not shipped."

Oh well. No worries.

I know it's a third party seller but it's the only one that listed the game (I ordered it at the beginning of October and I had totally, totally forgotten about it... I found out the game was coming by email notification and I thought it was a good idea to tell you guys so you could start making your moves).

Weird that Amazon (or a third-party seller) got it days ahead of any of the big online game stores. I'm assuming the third-party seller is a local game store with a bit of an online presence, but it still doesn't really add up if this isn't widely available at other brick and mortars.

Could have had a suggested release date that they disregarded. It's now available through Amazon prime for 43

Edit: Ok, cancelled Coolstuff preordered and ordered from Amazon. It's more, but then again I'm assured to get it before Thanksgiving.

I spoke with my FLGS and they said their distributor only got 1/3 of their order, and won't ship out until they get the full order in (won't play favorites- which is noble but also means I have to wait

EDIT: Just realized my message got cut off there. Weird. Anyway, just wanted to post that in case it helps explain why you may not have your copy yet!

And so you see... even though I'm a total n00b with Amazon and only started using it a few months ago, for some strange reason (which maybe has something to do with smile.amazon, the non profit org I support, which is animalsasia.org), that single dealer appeared for both of the games I love playing so much (X-Com and Pandemic the Cure).

... and it turns out he got Experimental Meds sooner than others just like he is CERTAIN to receive the X-Com Evolution expansion sooner (I have a presumed date and if you go to the FFG website you'll see there's no date).

I really have no idea why it's working like that (but boy was I lucky!). Oh sure, between taxes and shipping the base price becomes virtually irrelevant: whatever I pay, it's almost doubled.
