I know that many EbyZ's were pre released to media and individuals who pre-purchased. Has there been any 'large scale' distribution yet? Ive been patiently waiting for some word. My game store tells me that the warehouse lists this game as temp. out-of-stock.

My local gaming store had them in stock last weekend and there were 7-8 on the shelf. I went back today and they're completely sold out.

I believe a limited amount were sent to stores. Mayday Games estimates a December/January release.

The first print run was 2000 copies. Which is a lot considering this was my first game and before a few months ago few had even heard about it! Mayday had orders for a lot more then that after the kickstarter ended so they ended up short! Crappy paints I know but the good news is we have been told by the printers that they just started work on the the second run, that still puts it out by 4-6 weeks before your local stores can get it but it's coming! hope that helps!

Did an editor go over the cards before the 2nd printing? Will it contain the 2nd edition rulebook?

Every person I have played with has noticed typos and misspellings.

Yes the 2nd print run will be completed in about 2.5 weeks and shipped out quickly. We hope to have them in the USA and to stores shortly before Christmas.

We also had several talks with other game companies at Essen and hope to announce several other language releases shortly. Yes the 2nd printing will include some typo fixes and a rule book update too.

Also those who kickstarted will be getting the zombie die sent out in the next 3 weeks if in the USA, or if they elected to pay the shipping charge or wait for the game if international.

The US distribution preorders have already taken about 75% of the 2nd print run and we are scheduling a 3rd print for early next year around the same time as the 2 player version which doubles as a 5-6 player expansion.

From the kickstarter updates
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/maydaygames/eaten-by-zom...

"Update: Please note the zombie die will apparently take 8 weeks to produced so it will NOT go out with the game, but rather on its own separately or when the expansion is shipped to you for those with the expansion coming. For those picking up at Essen we will NOT have the die in time for you. We can ship it out with the expansion for those ordering the expansion, or with any other purchase on our website for free, but we can't ship these internationally on their own. "

I'm in the same scenario, in Canada, but I've ordered the expansion so should get the die with it.
