............ am I the only one checking this website and FFG website daily for an actual release date? Have I missed it and failed in my Hunt or should I continue my endeavour to find it...

This is hard work solo. Am I playing it wrong?

Supposedly you can check Esdevium for updates, but I've heard it will be no earlier than next Tuesday, and possibly much later.

EDIT - for solo play, use two decks.

They pulled this same nonsense with the core set. Why break precedent?

Yes. Though I am checking my FLGS website(s) regularly for an "in-stock" label.

I gave up driving by my FLGS looking for it on the shelves about a month ago.

I have given up calling them now.

I'll just wait until I see alot of reviews popping up. I hope it's not sold out by then.

Not sure if it relates to your side of the pond, but I heard from Coolstuffinc that they're expecting it from early to mid-July...

Hi there - I don't know if it means anything, but I've just received a "dispatched" email from Maelstrom games saying Gollum is in the post. Potentially almost here then...

... they have chased up the distributor, who said that

We are looking at 3rd week in July due to a miss ship from China


So I have ordered from Maelstrom, who are now only showing 2 in stock.

And now showing none in stock and no idea when they will arrive. I suspect we have a whoopsie here, and they never did have any. Time will tell.

Thanks for the updates - I had a feeling it was too good to be true, but I'll let you know if it arrives obviously.

Wishful thinking.......maybe just maybe FFG is going to add some of the rare single cards from the core set to this expansion so we would at least have 2x of each of the rares and maybe they are working on a super duper FAQ that will answer most of the game questions that are not clear in the rule book or text of the cards and that is why they are taking so long to release this expansion..........YES that probably is very wishful thinkingsoblue

Is your order status showing as dispatched? Mine still shows as 'processing', which I suspect means 'waiting for stock', as I placed the order just about in time to be dispatched (or at least picked and packed) on Friday. Certainly there is no excuse not to have shipped on Saturday, assuming they work Saturdays. Anyway, if there is no status change on Monday, then I will follow-up with emails.

But isn't the expansion 'known' from the event they had? It is perhaps more likely that they paid for expensive shipping for the sets to be used at the event, but sent the bulk of the stock from China the slower but cheaper way.

They have sent me an email telling me they have split my order because something is unavailable. They do not tell me what. All items were available according to their website when I submitted the order, and still available (but with less stock) after the order was submitted. No answer to my email (sent before theirs) asking what the hell is happening.

They definitely had less than required for every preorder.

The only strange thing for me was that processing was a little slow. They splitted my order first, but in a few days (when I lost my hope) status was changed to packing, and in 2 more days changed to dispatched.

I'm sure the restraining order had nothing to do with that, right?

It is being packed ... in China. From there it will go to FFG and then to your OLGS, and then to you.

Naw, they do seem to have genuine copies - just look 5 posts up this thread.

Amazon in the US is showing a July 20th release date. However they have been known to pull release dates out of thin air...

The UK distributor is saying that there was a shipping SNAFU and that mid-end July is when they can be expected. No idea where Mealstrom got these copies from ...
