In response to Mik's comment. It is true that games whose lead publisher is a European company often have English release dates well behind the German. This is usually due to the German publisher's focus on getting their version out for Essen. Others sometimes have to wait. In this case, Dominion's lead publisher is Rio Grande Games.
Just want to point out that my comment on games delayed for Essen, was not targeted at non-German publishers. It is not uncommon to have to wait for German releases as well. Either because the game was delayed at the printers (because more 'important' customers had priority) or because the boxes were delayed in shipping.
But I am pleased to hear that the game will be ready in time!
