Happy release day! Starting today, Arboretum is available in local game stores everywhere.

We're sold out at distribution already, but have two more reprints on their way, which should arrive by the end of the year.

Get out there and build some beautiful arboretums!

When should those who pre-ordered the Deluxe edition expect those to arrive?

I'm also interested in the answer to this.

Thanks! I saw a photo of the Deluxe Edition and it looks great on the table!

For those of us who couldn't wait and are expecting GenCon replacements, have those been sent out with this printing? Thanks.

I'm excited because I ordered one from my FLGS to be shipped to a friend of mine. I introduced him to my copy of the Z-Man edition a few months back, and he loved it so much I just had to send this new printing along to him. Can't wait for it to arrive on his doorstep!

We just received the replacement decks, so if you submitted a customer service request, those will ship out in the next 1-2 weeks.

The Deluxe edition is releasing December 14, so those pre-orders won't ship out for another month!

The reprints we have in progress will be identical to this first printing!

International distributors are always slightly delayed, but they should have their copies soon!

So what does this even mean? All print runs are "limited". The website specifically calling it "limited edition" makes it sound like it'll be difficult to obtain - maybe I'm in the minority here, but a "limited edition" has the subtext of being limited to those early birds that chose to preorder. If it'll just be reprinted again, what's actually limited about it?

I'm assuming they mean what they said? That they don't plan on reprinting for a while so when this runs out, it'll be out of stock.

Some people preordered this based on the assumption that "limited" means this won't be reprinted at all!

If some people are so petty that they will only buy something if they think others can't, oh well.

Myself, I'm glad if others get to enjoy it also.

If I buy a deluxe set and they later reprint it, I couldn't care less. But then I don't buy games to scalp them later at inflated prices.

Available in local game stores everywhere?
Everywhere I search in Europe, I cannot find one copy.
Did distributors in Europe receive copies?

Yes, I would also like to know when is this coming to Europe, because my order along with other games is waiting almost 2 months because of Arboretum!
I am on the edge of canceling preorder of Arboretum because it is stopping my whole order from shipping. Can we please get any info???

The release date in Europe is almost always delayed by a couple weeks because it has further to ship. Your local game store can check with their preferred distributor on their shipment! It will be there soon, though!

People get excited about "limited" things for reasons other than to resell. FOMO, exclusivity, wanting to complete a collection. I think it's foolish on your part to make assumptions about the motivations of other people you know nothing about.

My concern here is that something is being marketed as "limited" but we have no basis for knowing what that actually means. Every board game print run is "limited" in some way - publishers only print so many copies of any game. For example, Pandemic Ibera was marketed as a limited, one print run only game. But clearly that printing was probably 50k+ copies or a similarly huge number because it's still readily available.

In my opinion, calling something "limited" is a marketing ploy geared at people who don't want to miss out. If I want something and don't think I'll be able to get it later, I'm naturally going to want to jump at the opportunity to get it right away. But without knowing how many copies are actually being printed, or when it will be reprinted, there is no rational basis for making an informed decision to purchase.

I pre-ordered the deluxe version months ago under the assumption that it wouldn't be easy to get later on. Nowhere was the possibility a reprint announced at that time, so what reason would I have to think it would be trivial to obtain later?
