Now that November is here I was wondering if there is an official date that those who've pre-ordered can expect to receive their copy by.

FYI, I had been in recent contact with Alex, posing the same question along with updating the Tasty Minstrel page for individual sale of the games. He answered that the games are at the manufacturer and should be available the proverbial "soon".

This has been number one on my must have list since its announcement.
I hope/expect the soon is by mid-November 09.

Last I heard, the games were on a boat, and that was a while ago so I am eager to hear that they have hit California "any minute now."

As soon as I hear that news, I'll be sure to post all over BGG.

So in other words, the answer is no.

Best I've heard is that a week ago, they were on a boat about two weeks away. So they probably arrive next week, and people receive them in about 2-3 weeks. The target release is BGG con, which is 2 1/2 weeks away, so it looks like we should expect them pretty close to that time.

2 weeks for a boat to get from China to the west coast? Are they using sails?

Yeah it takes those big container ships about 2 weeks to get to the US from China.

They will arrive in time, since I have air shipped a pallet of each game for the show.

In addition, I just created a blog post about the upcoming release of the games - Games, Shipping, And The Long Wait

But don't be fooled by the radio, the TV, or the magazines. They'll show you photographs of how your life should be but they're just someone else's fantasies.

That is good to hear. Yea, I am one of the people who signed up to be customers for life. I glad you will have games at BGG con because I know it is important to you for getting the word out about your games.

I don't think the wait has been too long. But, this is coming from someone who has been waiting for games from Valley Games and MMP. Months is nothing when you have been waiting years.

So that 2-3 weeks for delivery you posted about on the 2nd is going to expire this coming week. Does it look like this is still on schedule? Or will it likely be after Thanksgiving now? I'm not impatient, just really excited!

edit: And mildly annoying too come to think of it.

Due to problems I will have to manage a team to properly collate and verify contents. Add silica pacts and re shrink.

I will do my best to make this as soon as possible....

definitely prior to Christmas without new issues.

Being late to the party, is it still possible to order this one? Or do I have to wait for them to end up at OLGS's...

It bears repeating, so here it is:

Homesteaders can be ordered here.

The game will cost $39.95 and include free shipping. This is only available inside of the United States right now.

At this point in time, ordering directly from me is probably the only way it will arrive in time for Christmas. I am making every effort to make sure that happens.

Additionally Terra Prime can be ordered from the link below
