When is this being released in the US? Also, will the board misprint be rectified in said release?

I heard one of the locations or something was missing an icon? Perhaps I am mistaken.

From all the info i gathered here it seems like Zman was going to make an announcement by now but i cant find anything. Id even be fine with an imported cokpybut its just way too hard to find a copy or way too expensive.

Seems like theres a lot pf people dying to play this game. Need more info!

Agreed. I have scoured online, and, based on the info I had about the misprint issue, would rather wait for a US, updated release.

Misprint - location sheet "Laundry room" misses three Item icons on one side. The info about it and the errata was put in the updated English rulebook that you can find here on BGG - http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/73390/english-rulebook-wit...

US release - everything now is up to Z-Man/Filosofia. Their box is going to be different (like in Pandemic), but all stuff inside will be the same. Apart from the misprint of course I can't tell you more until they make an official announcement.

Misprint is on a Laundry room - the transparent icons for the items found there are missing. But those icons are not really important for the play and most players didn't even notice them missing. It will surely be corrected in the next print run.

As for the Z-man release AFAIK the papers have been signed. Can't say why Z-man hasn't announced the release yet - I can say it was officially announced in Poland.

I actually emailed Zman about a week ago asking for any information on this release. Never got a response. There was a copy up on ebay for about $70 the other day. Starting to think i shouldve grabbed it while i could. shake

So this misprint in no way affects the game negatively?

We decided to put the icons there to make the game setup easy and intuitive - that's all. You could argue that: "There are no icons there, so I won't put any tokens there at the start of the game, and make the location useless"... but apart from such disturbing behavior... really no...

I just got two different e-mails from Z-Man in regards to this question.

One says the following:
"We are shooting for a late summer release."

The other:
"The release of Alcatraz is scheduled for Gencon 2012."

I guess I chose a good year to finally attend Gencon!

If there's anything that I've learned w/ my recent preorders of Descent 2e and Eclipse, its that I can wait. I only wish I would have waited as long as possible, so that my entire orders aren't waiting for several months for one game to be in stock.

Just picked up a copy yesterday at my local shop (upstate ny) along with a copy of their 2008 release, rice wars. they are English language versions but are not zman...both came in this week. Total on alcatraz was 38 plus tax.

Someone can get it, that's for sure...the box is largely empty and some of the components had minor damage in both games due to lack of or improper insert...be warned.

Very excited to play none the less!

Z-Man Games showed their version of the game box. You can have a look here: http://www.zmangames.com/boardgames/files/alcatraz/3d_Alcatr...

Looks good. Could you actually confirm what are the game's contents for those of us who do not own a copy?

The components in Kuźnia Gier's and Z-Man's versions are exactly the same:

- 12 double-sided location sheets
- 4 character sheets
- 55 cards
- 4 wooden prisoner pawns
- 68 wooden markers
- 27 tokens
- rulebook

I updated the descrption of the game, adding the above info.

Any more updates on this game's US release? Z-man Games still lists the game as "Coming this Summer" with no further information and Summer is almost over. Z-man's page for the game hasn't even been updated to even include a price. It sucks because I want the game and it really looks fun.

The official release date of Z-Man's edition is GenCon 2012.
That means... right now!

I just returned from Gen Con where I got a good look at the new Z-Man edition. It looks great! It's basically the exact same thing as the previous edition with a little higher quality materials used for the components and a much smaller box. For someone like me, the box makes a big difference for storage.
