The 2nd version printing has been done, and we have received the sample copies. All is well in the printed parts, but the wood parts, more pricisely the orange ones were not what we had ordered. They need to be fixed before the final assembly can take place. This will delay the shipping of the games for about 10 days, which will push the expected arrival time the same.
Our earlier estimate for the 2nd version release was end of May, but now it looks like it'll move to early June.
We know that this is not what many of you like to read, but we hope the end result will be one that everyone will be happy about.

While disappointing (I, like many others, have this preordered and am anxiously awaiting its arrival), it's great of you to provide this update. I'd rather know than wonder about it. Thanks for letting us know.

Bad news indeed. Better wait and get a top quality product than rush and get subpar components. Thanks for the update.

Does this have to be pre-ordered from the Finnish site? That's a heck of a lot of shipping costs, I would imagine. Can it be pre-ordered from Asmodee (listed as a publisher)? If not, will it be available on Asmodee after the pre-order period?

Will the new orange counters be available for order as replacement components for those of us with the first edition "orange" counters?

Also, +1 on Supernova inquiry.

How is this bad news?
Company eager to capitalize on an awesome game decides quality is more important than shipping out a product not ready for release.

I celebrate this fact, and further I celebrate that they are keeping us posted! I love companies that have high standards and even though there is ridiculously high demand they won't budge on standards. Kudos!

Thanks for the update. You can tell a lot of us are eager to get our hands on this - a couple weeks won't matter much in the end.

It's pretty easy to paint them. Cheap acrylic paint sets or whatever. Just might have to mix paints for the orange and after they're dry, buff them with a paper towel to give them a little sheen. Mine look awesome. laugh

It's already on the program, Kristine is waiting the Supernovas for about the same time we will receive the reprint.

No, you can buy your copy from any store you want. Some stores already offer preorders, some start selling when they get em.
As far as we know, Asmodee doesn't sell games directly to end users.

Shipping goes like this:

One container to the US, Asmodee US will distribute these games in North America when they arrive.

2nd container to Europe. This shipment will be first split between Asmodee and Lautapelit.fi. Lautapelit.fi distributes the game in Nordic countries, Asmodee elsewhere in Europe.

The 2 shipments are not linked in any way, it may be that US one arrives a week earlier than the Europe one, or the other way around. At both ends, the games will be shipped out as soon as it's possible.

Preorders from Lautapelit.fi will ship out when our part of the games have arrived to our warehouse in Helsinki.

Shouldn't that be "Supernovae"?

AFAIK the 2nd print will have an MSRP of $99, same as the 1st print. Cardhaus is taking preorders at $62.65.

In other words, the list of all changes remains "orange pieces are orange".
