Hello -

A quick note about the release date. We are working hard to have this available in the November time frame, in time for the Holidays. I don't have a more exact date than that at the moment. I will update this thread as we can pin down a more exact date.

It is available for pre-order at at least one online retailer, CoolStuffInc, at the following link:

I have been informed by Rio Grande that they expect the game to arrive from the printer next week (week of Nov 5-11), and then to start delivery. I'm not 100% sure what delivery means...I think they mean just getting it to the distributor. So, I'm not entirely sure when it will get to store shelves, or to online retailers to then send out to folks - however, I would expect people will be able to get it before the end of November.

I stumbled across this today on Miniature Market when I was browsing their upcoming releases section. I just wanted to say that I am so excited for this game! My husband and I love Christmas, and we've been looking for a Christmas game to play (something other than Christmas-opoly ), so this a perfect fit for us, especially since we love worker placement games! I'll be putting in my pre-order for it through Miniature Market on payday!

The latest information is that the game is expected to be shipped to distributors this week, and once they get it, it will then be delivered to retailers. Hopefully to be in stores the first week of December.

There was a demo copy at BGG.com this past weekend...hopefully some folks got the chance to play.

I don't know offhand...I'll ask. Are you typically able to get game from Rio Grande? I know they are using GTS and Alliance as distributors...but I'm unsure if they ship outside the U.S.

Jay Tummelson, owner of Rio Grande, tells me that they have distributors for oversea markets, including the U.K. - so you should be able to get it. I don't know dates of availability, though.

Super excited to get this! Really hoping that it does hit stores the first week in December, as I have some orders with Christmas presents on hold at Miniature Market that are just waiting on the release of this game.

Well, Tammy, I would estimate more like the 2nd week of December at this point - and I hope we don't cut it any closer. It is now scheduled to be shipped to Rio Grande next Tuesday, and as soon as they get it, it will go out to distributors. I keep bugging them almost daily for updates...

Hi Barb - please see my response in the separate thread about 2 players.

I hope to have an update in the next day or two on the status of the game - hopefully it will be at retailers very shortly.

Ah yes, sorry about that. Last I heard from Rio Grande was that it was supposed to go out to distributors last Friday.

Now, just tonight I got a UPS notification of a shipment from Rio Grande that is expected to arrive at my house this Friday, Dec. 8. I expect those are my designer copies, and if they're shipping to me, I assume that means they've shipped them out to distributors (hopefully last Friday as planned).

I've reached out to Rio for confirmation...

If they've been shipped to distributors, then they should get them at some point this week, and hopefully quickly turn them around to send to retailers. So, I'm still thinking in retailers at some point next week. I'll update as I hear more from Rio Grande.

Rio Grande confirmed that shipping to distributors started last Friday and is continuing this week. Jay, the owner of Rio Grande, thinks it may start appearing in stores this weekend.

So, at this point it kind of depends on what day it went out to which distributor, and which distributor your store uses, and how long it will take to get to them.

And of course, if you're buying from one of the online retailers, they have to turn it around to ship to you.

I hope they're right, and some do start appearing in stores this weekend...but my guess is still sometime next week before it starts appearing with regularity.

Just as a heads up, if you want the hold orders for Christmas, their cutoff for releasing hold orders for guaranteed arrival of 12/24 is tomorrow, 12/8. I had to release my hold orders without Santa's Workshop because they contain Christmas presents.

Argh...I'm sorry to hear that. This is frustrating for me. I still think people will get it before Christmas, but it is a lot closer than I would like.

Not a big deal; I plan to pay for upgraded shipping once it comes in stock at MM in hopes of still getting it before Christmas. Their ground cutoff isn't until December 16th, so as long as they get it in next week, I'm hopeful that we'll still have it for Christmas.

Well, I did get my designer copies today...hopefully that means they aren't far behind for the general public.

Got my designer copies last Friday, and today I heard from Labyrinth Games in Washington D.C. that they received copies. I have also heard from several people that ordered through Cool Stuff Inc that they have received shipping notices.

Haven't heard from Miniature Market yet, which is where I placed an order (I wasn't sure when my designer copies would be coming).
