Hmmm, Australia received the game a week before the US did...my order has been delayed due to insufficient quantities....and no local game store has received a copy. So you're in the same boat as the rest of us. Who knows, you might have copies available before I do. That's just the way the dice roll, sometimes....

As far as I know, the games have arrived in the UK.

The UK distributor received every product he ordered. It is only in North America that FFG is allocating distributors, due to higher-than-expected demand, and the staggered arrival of the containers.

If there is a shortage in the UK, it is simply due to high demand, and reflects no failure of FFG to deliver the ordered quantities. There is really no-one to blame in this situation, as our distributors can only really guess at the demand.

We can never promise a simultaneous global release, but the games left for Europe at the same time as they left for North America, ditto with Australia. One Australian customer chose to fly the games in to Australia, thus the fast release there. This is not a realistic option for FFG or many of our customers.

Currently, our entire printing is now spoken for on a wholesale basis, but we ordered a re-print about a month ago when we started seeing the demand spike. The reprint is shipping from our factory next week, and should arrive in July.

Note that the next wave of product in North America is expected to start shipping out of FFG's warehouse late next week.

We'll try to stay on top of it as much as we can!

Best Wishes

but what i have recieved from the guy i PRE ORDERED from is this email

Quote:
it often happens that the US /. Australia receive copies of these games earlier than us in the UK because most of these games are manufactured in China so shipping times are shorter.
I spoke to my supplier last week and they told me that TIDE OF IRON was on the boat from China and is expected in the next couple of weeks - frustrating for you and me both


this email was recieved on Friday. SO what exactly is the situation???

If I was a guessing man I'd guess that everybody's telling the truth.............................as it appears to them!

I suspect that the game was on the boat last week, has now arrived in the UK but is clearing customs moving to the distrobution warehouse etc and will be released, as per Esdevium's flier, on the week starting the 11th.

I keep promising myself I won't get hung up waiting for another game, but I never learn.
