Greetings,

As one might expect, the Icelandic volcanic eruption has impacted shipping throughout Europe and the reprint of Thunderstone did not escape the issues. We currently expect the reprint of Thunderstone to hit our warehouses by late May. Once there it will go immediately into the channel and back into stores.

Thanks!

Sort of a wrath of the earth and fire elements interfering with the reprint?

As of now the expansion is not affected. It has its own rulebook.

Is the rulebook the only change with this reprint?

When in my FLGS or ordering online, is there an easy way
to identify the reprinted edition?



Thanks,

Bob

Somewhat curious as to how a disruption in AIR traffic affects the shipment of the game... you can't possibly be air shipping these? I mean that's got to be far more expensive than sending them over water hasn't it?

The games themselves may not be air-shipped from Europe to AEG/the USA Distribution chains, but I am sure there are a lot of other things that go into this game that are air-shipped.

For example, the inks, papers, and/or plastics used by the printers may be air-shipped. Or, more likely, they are shipped via railways/trucks, and if nothing can fly around Europe, then most likely everything gets shipped via railways and trucking lanes instead. Well, the more stuff that needs to get moved that way (because the movement of goods and/or people via airways has been effectively stiffled), the longer it takes to get everything "on board" on the trains and trucks.

Essentially, shutting down one form of "goods movement device" will inevitably clog up all of the other "goods movement devices".

I doubt the delay in this being available here is related to GETTING the game into the US. It is probably more directly related to GETTING the supplies to manufacture the game to the European printer, which will directly delay getting the game back to AEG.

If you don't mind my asking - what's the latest on having the reprint, plus Wrath of the Elements, in the distributors hands? I have both items on preorder.

It's on its way for June. I can't say more than that but it'll be there next month, just in time for Wrath!

Another week as passed without any news about the reprint! I want my copy!

Is it still the target to have them at the stores by the end of June? 1 week left with 2 civic holidays here in Quebec...

I saw it for sale newly listed in a web store so I expect you will see it everywhere shortly (the next 4-5 days).

Other than the 1.4 rulebook (and maybe the addition of the solo rules?), is there anything else that has been updated in the reprint?

Picked it up from my FLGS today. 1.4 rules, does not include the solo rules (but does have links to AEG and BGG, with a mention of variants, including solo play).
