Got my copy today in Cincinnati, Ohio! Very excited, though (of course) I won't have any time to play it until this weekend. I can confirm that Flops is in the box!

Well, on the upside, we have some downloadable content dropping on Friday so there's something.

My local game store called to say they are holding my copy but won't let me have it until tomorrow since that's the official street date.

I hate street dates...

That is pretty awesome to hear about already! I just noticed you are Dallas located? That is pretty cool, let me know if you ever need another DFW local to blind playtest any games out

If you're ever in Addisson you should stop by for a visit.

I haven’t heard anything from mine. I’m hoping to show up after work looking pitiful and have them take mercy on me since it will be pretty close to closing time then.

Just called my FLGS, they said it is on the invoice for the shipment arriving today, and that I could pick it up this afternoon. Whoohoo!

I guess some stores are really strict about the official release date?
But, if there are people (like the OP) who ordered direct from PlaidHat, and have already received it... I don't see why the store needs to hang on to it until the 2nd.

Street dates are a big deal when it comes to advantage for 1 store to the next.

Some companies and distributors will withhold future games from stores if they find out they break street dates. But I doubt it happens often or that they need to be so strict about it, but my local store is. Sigh.

I blame the company or distributor for enforcing a release date, not my local store for doing what they're told.

So my flgs posted their releases for tomorrow on facebook showing it. Sadly I didn’t get a chance to get there after work today. Oh well it won’t hurt me to wait another day.

My wife preordered it for me directly from Plaid Hat and hasn't heard anything. Hopefully they're just shipping it out without sending tracking information to those who have preordered and it'll be here soon.

I'm from Austria and the shop I preordered from updated their information to: "Waiting for new release date from producer" today
I then went and asked them about the status as other countries in Europe are apparently already sending the game according to this thread. The reply I got was that is has not been yet released for the German market, the version I preordered was the english one. Is this true? And if yes when is the english version coming to the german market?

I walked into my FLGS over lunch hour today and they had a copy in stock today, so I bought it. While street dates can suck for online buying, it certainly helps me know when I can actually expect stores to have it available. I know I've been frustrated in the past as games are released but I can't find it in a store until weeks or sometimes months later.
