I sent Kevin at Stronghold a Geekmail asking if he had any updates on when we'd see the expansions. here was his answer:

Quote:
We're still awaiting arrival of the shipment ourselves. Because of this, we have elected to fly in the expansions especially for our customers and we have no reason to believe it will be any later than June 9th at this point. They'll go out as soon as we receive them, as we're eager to get them out to our customers as well.

I'll be including our most recent information in the June Newsletter, which should be out within a week or so.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and I'll be happy to answer.

Terribly sorry I didn't notice the "In Stock Yet?" thread. I would have answered sooner, but I do appreciate Jim alerting me to the question from the community.

I just looked on CSI about this expansion and it went from a preorder May release to July/August. I've had this ordered for about 5 weeks now through CSI with $120.00 worth of other items but I think it's time to call them and get this dropped from it. I really don't feel like waiting another 1 to 2 months just to get my order in over a $5 item.

I just ordered the base game and wanted to order the expansion but saw that it was pre-order only. I've heard bad things when people add a pre-order to their regular order and have to wait much too long just because the pre-ordered item was delayed. So I opted not to add it to my order, I want my other stuff within 4 days, not 4+ weeks.

This is correct, as the newsletter stated:

Quote:
The Survive: 5-6 Player Mini-Expansion will begin shipping along with the Confusion preorders on Monday, June 13th. They will go into retail for August, although there may be a small batch left for sale on strongholdgames.com in the interim. However, we cannot guarantee that this stock will last very long as it is only a partial shipment to begin with.

I am confused...is this being sent out soon to those that preordered or has the whole thing been put off until July/August?

Then I should be theoretically happy but I am really theoretically doubtful.

Thanks for the reply though.

In theory, shipping has begun for those that preordered as per our newsletter.

... and before I depart, I can confirm this theory. Only retail units are affected. We made special consideration for our preorder customers in order to live up to our promise to them.

I ordered mine May 20th from Cool Stuff Inc. Still no signs of it and it is holding up my order with the base game too. Sent them an e-mail but haven't heard back. I should have ordered from Boards & Bits...they have never let me down.

Wasn't it stated somewhere that pre-orders that weren't directly through Stronghold will wait until it hits retail in August?

I wasn't aware of that. I'll have to cancel my order.

Got Mine on Monday 20th. Several of the pieces were stuck together. Took some force to snap them apart. Did not notice any damage.

Putting on 60 stickers is quite labor intensive. Good project while watching baseball.

Inspected my mountain tiles (got 7 not 5) and replaced 3 of them, 1 I had noticed, but not my wife. The other 2 I had not actually noticed before.

Kevin
