Just ordered it while on the M.V. Hrossey from Orkney to Aberdeen at the tail-end of our honeymoon. A ferry, and not a steamer, sadly. Still, I’m taking it as a strong thematic link, and therefore sound justification for me buying this while my wife is feeling seasick.

Re: Preorder available from PD Verlag
Too dark outside to take a picture of us passing Peterhead right now, so I'll share one from Stromness - the M.V. Graemsay in the background took us to Hoy.
Again, not a steamer, or indeed crossing the Atlantic, but still a fine excuse for me to nerd out while at sea.
So excited about this game!

That's us heading into Aberdeen Harbour - birthplace (berth place?) of the Thermopylae and Britain's oldest business.

I just sank the Thermopylae in Nemo's War (second edition). Whoops

Yes! I initially thought it was just for preorder, but they're showing in stock so hopefully not too long.

For Concordia PD Verlag are offering to open the box and remove the German cards to reduce shipping costs. They don't have a similar offer for Transatlantic.

I've bought it direct too, thanks to this post, Gragle. Ta. I hope you had a great Honeymoon.

Ori, I suspect economies of scale permits this for Concordia.

Not sure removing them in Transatlantic before it becomes a hit works for them. Or maybe weight-wise it wouldn't tip it under the threshold for cheaper shipping...

Am I missing something? They’ll ship to Canada, but the States aren’t an option?

It's likely they can't sell directly to US customers because of their contract with Rio Grande, the US publisher.

Which is a massive shame, because Rio Grande is so bad a publisher that Transatlantic, which it says will be released on November 8th, doesn't show up on any online retailers preorder lists anywhere in the U.S..

There was a mixup with which PD Verlag items would be loaded on which containers. At this point, we are anticipating Transatlantic to arrive in early December, but this could be affected by ocean freight and rail transport (as well as shipping/logistic delays around the holidays).

I can assure you, we're eagerly awaiting Transatlantic as well!
