Is there a *solid* release date yet? Or even release month? I have heard August...but then also heard it may be postponed to September. Anyone know the real release date?

the release date will vary slightly around the world, but you should expect to see the game reaching stores worldwide in late august to september, with a preview at GenCon.

Will this preview include copies for sale at the your
booth? Or is the preview a demo only event?

I'm really looking forward to your game and liked what I
saw at Origins.

Best of luck with it!

as the game will be ready (crossing fingers) at the German factory in early august, we will air mail a few hundreds copies (while the rest goes on a sea trip across the ocean) to be available for GenCon at the Fantasy Flight booth (Nexus will not have a booth there, but hanging around the FFG booth and the Boardgame hall you will find myself, Francesco Nepitello, and Marco Maggi (the WotR design team), as well as Andrea Angiolino (one of the designers of Wings of War, also a Nexus game distributed to the US by Fantasy Flight).

You wouldn't happen to be going to the San Diego Comic Con would you? I know they are having a large LOTR booth with loads of LOTR derivative games... no mention of FFG or Nexus though.

When you say that you are air-mailing a few hundred copies to Gen-Con I assume that means they will be for sale?

Would you folks be willing to sign copies of the game as well?

For the USA, what is the projected release date (if any firm date has been set), if you are able to be more specific? Or is it still too early to set a firm release date due to the minor malfunction that occurred in production?

Thanks tons,

Sam

Yes they will be available for sale as far as I know (but FFG should know better as it is THEIR booth... but I guess they will want to sell the copies!)

Would you folks be willing to sign copies of the game as well?

If you really want to spoil an otherwise perfectly new and mint game

Yes a 'firm' release date is impossible to tell until copies start shipping from the factory, but I'd say that by mid-september the game should well be into the distribution channels.

Snap! WotR will be a good choice for a requested birthday present this year, I think.

Richard.

You designers are awesome for posting here!

I wish the game of thrones (a clash of kings) people also posted.

good luck with finishing the game in time.

It is quite possible that we will actually have a TOURNAMENT run at VerCon if enough people is there ready for it.
One tournament could possibly be run at ModCon as well.
And at Lucca Comics & Games we will have a special "Making of" art show with John Howe as a guest!
