I might be somewhere in these threads already but I thought I'd go ahead and setup a thread for this in particular.


So, what is the expected release date?




And yes, cult of the new, hype and such. Whatever, the game looks like fun and I want to play/own it. Therefore I will likely preorder it. So there.


And yea, it's being advertised on BGG at the top. So what? From what I can tell, there's not much of a hype machine besides that, yet. And so what if there was? You can go about your business with your cult of the old and waiting until you can play someone else's copy. I'll just buy it and move on. Donalad X V has yet to dissapoint me.

Boy, I'm starting all kinds of fights, aren't I? How about this, I'm not trying to start a fight. Call me a fanboy if you want, I guess. Probably true, but that doesn't bug me.

Can I reply without proving your point? Probably not. I just have seen many comments from people who complain about hype, cult of new, etc... whenever people get excited for a game that's not out yet.

Well it should be at Essen.

As far as general US release that will depend on Queen I guess. My impression is that they haven't gotten things out very quickly to the US in the past, but I don't have any real data, nor may it be a good indicator of how they will handle this release.

It will be at Essen (so that's October 20th); I don't know when it will actually make it into stores in various countries, but the plan would be, right around then. It has been printed early enough that it could actually get shipped in time to come out promptly in the US.

I just wanted to say thank you, Donald, for replying in the forums here when it's warranted and you have something to add to the discussion. I am glad to hear more about the game, designer notes, trials, successes, printing/publishing/delivery dates, etc...

I also want to thank you, Donald, for not commenting when there are silly comments/debates/flame wars, etc. surrounding his design(s). Let the community control themselves or the admins when needed, KUDOS to you sir for doing just that!

And finally, thank you, Donald, for contributing your works to the hobby we all share. You have a great credit to your name with Dominion and I look forward to giving Kingdom Builder a go. I will keep my eyes peeled for notes about the kid's game and the mad scientist one too.
