Hello.

In europe some of my friends seem to be getting their 2nd edition copies from KS.

I ordered mine form a store. There has been contradicting information about when the game will hit retail. Can someone clarify, if the stores will have the game around the same time, or retail versions are different shipment, and/or there is an "embargo" to make the games available after backers get it?

Late December / Early January, but sadly it's undefined

Any source? Because some stores claim they will have the game this month, some say, no sooner than january. I messaged a few

Can you tell I'm impatient?

My best guess is that retail copies will be on the same boats as KS copies.

The information we've had so far is that KS backers get priority, but I doubt that this means a whole separate shipment to retailers. Hopefully the distribution centres are under instruction to ship KS copies first.

If you are impatient, just try to imagine that you live in New Zealand and that the boat won't be arriving until the back end of November.... in Australia.

They separated backers without addons first. There's no reason it can't be backers without, then with, then retailers. Of course, that may still be by country. So some may still be before others.

There are five separate boats just for the KS copies. It's likely there will be more than one boat just for retail.

Our company, Impressions, handles the wholesale side...

KS copies are shipping now. Wholesale copies are on boats going all over the world to distributors. Chances are late November to early December to be in stores worldwide.

I received the following answer from Isaac:

Subject: Re:Gloomhaven to distributors by late October.
Benjamin,

We've had some delays since then, so retailers should be starting to get their games in late November or early December.
