This game came in under the radar for me. I was browsing around and saw some link to a vid. "Chinatown on steroids" was mentioned.
Is there a reason this wasn't reviewed or previewed by any of the major reviewers? I think it would have a ton of buzz if some reviewers got some video reviews out.
*I have ordered it online and am patiently waiting for Miniature Market to get it and ship it out.

Maybe they too haven't got it?

I agree with you, it is a bit odd. It seems very promising and different. Shut up and sit-down mentioned it a couple of times in a very positive way at least.

I preordered it from Miniature Market, but despite the August 9th, estimated release date, there has been no news about it ever since.cry

It has already hit store shelves.

I saw this too.. and I drove an hour trip to visit my three stores. Nothing. Ordered online. Miniaturemarket and coolstuffinc have it still listed as preorder. Sad panda, but I waited since 2013 for the 2nd ed of GMT's Fields of Fire, so I guess I can wait a week or two or three for it.

I can only guess that the original shipment was extremely low.

Would be great if we got some clarity from someone connected with distribution?

All I can say is that it is now out of stock at all distributors. My FLGS still has 1 left in stock from initial preoder.

This game probably could have landed big if they would have done some marketing and had a bigger print.

Seems pretty on the radar to me, I kept hearing mentioned over and over again as the surprise breakout hit from multiple reviewers, podcasts, and such before I finally broke down and looked into it more. Now it's out of stock everywhere now. I think it's actually a big hit than they anticipated. Which makes me sad because I'll probably have to wait a year for a reprint.

I actually switched my order from Miniature Market to Funagain games. It must have been one of their last copies, but my copy will arrive on Wednesday. I really didn't want to wait for secondary market or reprint for this, because it turns out I'm not as patient as I like to pretend I am.

Oh cool - I didn't see it was such a big hit. I pre-ordered it a while back and got it in a couple weeks ago, but have yet to play it. Makes me excited to try it out!

I got the Miniature Market restock alert and quickly watched it drop from 20+ to 18 to 16, where it's been sitting for a day or so. Makes a tough decision for me because this is now my most wanted game on my wishlist, but I need to cut my purchases for the year. I could hope to get this for Christmas, but worried that a small print run could go fast and I'd be waiting a whole other year.

Only played once so far and I am already in love with this game.

Scratch that, I refreshed throughout the day at work today and watched it count down from 16 to 9 and freaked out and pulled the trigger myself, hah. This game is going fast. Grab em while you can!
