Just rec'd this email (in response to an email of mine regarding ship date for 1st wave of LOR CE) from FFG...thought i'd pass it along...

"The first wave is on a boat on its way to us now. We expect by mid March these should all be shipped out. (from an FFG Sales Associate)"

Hopefully we're getting close!

It has been listed as "On the Boat" since Jnauary 25th. Awhile back when I emailed someone, I was told they were being air-shipped in, but not sure if that has changed, or how long that takes as opposed to the 6-ish weeks the boat usually does. I was HOPING for late Feb./early March, but will take mid-March if that's what it is (like I have a choice!)...

With all the snow we've been getting in my area this week, it sure would have been nice to have my Collector's Edition to help fight off the cabin fever. But my copy won't be here until May!

Just received this mail from edge France :

Bonjour,

nous venons d'avoir confirmation de la part de Nexus de l'arrivée imminente de Wars of the Ring Deluxe Edition.
En regard du prix de ce jeu, je vous envoie ce courriel afin que vous sachiez que vous pouvez toujours annuler la précommande en envoyant un courriel d'annulation.
En l'absence de tout message nous procéderons à l'encaissement dès que le jeu sera arrivé et évidemment dès que celui-ci vous sera envoyé.
Cordialement,
Marc Taillefer,
responsable de la boutique Edge.

sounds fine !

The ship carrying the 1st wave has arrived in Italy today, the copies must now clear customs and be delivered to our warehouse, which will take a few more days, after this we will be able to ship.

In a couple of days we will be sending instructions to handle the payment for anybody who ordered through the Nexusgames website or using the order form at Essen.

We expect the 2nd wave to ship out of China in mid-march, for a late april release. So it should arrive about 2 months after the first wave, which should ship out of our warehouse before the end of february.

So how exactly is the distribution handled? Do all of the copies first go through Italy, and then the "American" ones are shipped to Fantasy Flight Games? Or are the US copies shipped directly from China to the US? Just curious.

Sounds to me like they all come through Italy first, then to the distributors elsewhere.

You know what's worse for me? It seems that I'll get my copy after all of you... Nexus has specified that customers will be delivered their copies first, then the designers... cry

That's ridiculous, you should have yours by now. Major props on creating the best game ever. I have really enjoyed playing it hundreds and hundreds of times.

There are three separate shipments, one coming to Italy (for customers who ordered to Nexusgames directly), one to the USA for customers who ordered from FFG (which should be in the USA about at the same time) and one to Germany for the German edition, to Phalanx, which is scheduled to arrive about 2 weeks after the other ones.

Hmm so if the Nexus ones arrived in Italy yesterday it stands to reason the that FFG ones arrived in the USA yesterday (give or take a day or two) as well. Assuming that FFG will turn them around ASAP, would it be crazy to think I might have my copy from FFG by next week? I hope so.

Now, now, don't forget about "a few more days" to clear customs...

Correct, plus internal transit times and preparing hundreds of shipments.
I believe that 2-3 weeks from now is a more sensible assumption.

I preordered mine through Boards&Bits, and they say 2nd printing should be distributed by end of April to mid May.
