I tried a few stores locally and nobody could give a firm date (or even a general one) as to when this would be available. Anybody have a guess as to the ETA of this on store shelves?

Their promo articles say "fourth quarter 2017." The first month of the 4th quarter is October, so I hope and pray that the Oct 5th date is accurate.
It's about 6 weeks post Gencon release, so that seems about right.

I will say that FFG has been doing a much better job of getting things in stores more quickly after Gencon in recent years. It used to take FOREVER.

Anyway, nothing we can really do but wait and see. Oh, or we can also arrange for a ninja-shopper to get us one from Gencon. There's that option too

Personally though, I'm just going to wait and see. I'm a big LCG fan and I'm sure it's going to be awesome but I want to make sure there will be enough local players to have a decent group of opponents before jumping in too far.

The most recent news article said the release is in Q3, so maybe we will see it mid-late September after all!

Everybody probably already noticed, but in case not: FFG announced the game will be released in the Q3. So 30 September at the latest

From their website:

'Secure your Core Set and place in the three in-store events of the Launch Program by speaking to your local retailer today! Retailer pre-orders for the Launch Kit close on August 23rd, and the Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game Core Set (L5C01) will be released in Q3 2017!'

September 30 is a Saturday. It will not release on a Saturday as everyone knows that Thursday is LCG day. 10/5 is the day being reported most, 9/28 would be a pleasant surprise.
