Soooooooo...being new to FFG's lingo, I'm assuming "On the boat" means it's already been printed and is en route to distributors? Or something?

Either way, psyched!

Definition from the FFG website:

The product is traveling from the printer to our warehouse. The duration of this process varies depending on where the printer is located, be it in the US, China, or Germany, but generally takes four to six weeks.

So after this step there is still; "Shipping Now" and then onto "In stores Now." We are probably still looking at Late November or early December to get our hands on it.

If I can play Fallout in the winter holidays I will be more than happy! My only concern is whether it will happen this year or only in Januray.

Do you need more card ideas for the D&D Adventure System games?

The title "Streets of Arkham" makes me thinking of a gritty police procedural set in H.P. Lovecraft's universe. "This is the Massachusetts State Police Department and this is their story...."

Amazon shows a release date of November 17. So hopefully we've got our release day!

Amazon have no idea when it's going to be released. They just put random dates.

Do not crush our irrational hopes with your rational facts.

My local shop says the game is expected at December 30th. Its bit of a let down, need to find something else for the long winter nights.

Also probably a complete guess.

For what it's worth, most FFG Christmas releases are available around end of November/beginning of December.

This. It looks like the shop had the following discussion :
Boss: FFG said 4th quarter? Let’s put December 31.
Bob: Boss, we don’t work on New Year Eve!!
Boss: Oh! December 30 it is.

In that case I would be happy (like I said it already) but they updated it from December the 21st a week ago.

*shrug* Still doesn't mean anything. It's extremely unlikely that your FLGS has access to information that everyone else doesn't. Board games are released on exactly this schedule:

"Whenever the ship arrives in port."

So the earliest you can know when a game will be released is usually no more than about a week in advance. Anything in advance of that is just a guess.
