Does anyone know when the german version will hit the market ? cry

There is a development in GER I'm eyeing suspiciously. Is it just me or are english versions of FFG Games much harder to get than, say, two or three years ago ? And they tend to be much more expensive.

I decided for the german version of this game at Essen and would rather not mix the languages.
Frustrating...

On the German publishers discussion board one guy posted an email reply to his enquiry on when the German version Khazad-dum will be released: The answer was "in mid February". But I don't know if this will delay the whole German edition cycle.

I started to play with the German edition for the same reasons as you (easier and faster to get, cheaper) but now with KD I have switched to the English version.

So far in the past, specialist fantasy stores in bigger German cities had the English version nearly as fast the German version, but yes: you have to pay 25-50% more than the Germn edition...

Mid February ??!! surprise
...Ouch, that hurt.
Thanks for the info. I really start to consider getting the English version via amazon uk or something (Our FLGS does not have english version in stock)
But then I have to rebuy all releases up to now.
..Well, another 60 bucks down the drain...

BTW: A friend of mine had the same problem with Descent. The german edition was much cheaper but to get hands on some german Expansions was a real PITA.

If you want to buy the English version it might be worth taking a look at http://www.magierspiele.de/Living+Card+Games.2587/Lord+of+th.... Khazad-Dum costs 23.40 EUR and free posting.

Mid-February is really annoying!!!

Edit: The German version is now listed as available within the next 2-7 working days at magierspiele !!! http://www.magierspiele.de/product_info.php?products_id=2141...
So there is still hope we will get it within the next week (7 working days would be only the week after that though.)

Well, I like the english version better anyways. Started with an english and a german core set, but by now I am only buying the english expansions. It is more expensive though.

I was told today, that the container arrived at the publisher. Thus Khazad-Dum will be available next week.
