Hello,

I've seen that Archi is listed for pre-order at the publishers page.

Will this be the only possibility to buy the game before Essen2012 or will it be delivered to some (german) online shops after release?

In addition to our web site, Archipelago will be available in regular shops (online or otherwise) in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxemburg.

It also might be available in shops in other countries if they specifically request the games from us or from our distributors.

Any guess how much of a discount the online shops will have over the the price listed on the publisher's website? I am very tempted to preorder it from the publisher's website for North America delivery. However, I don't want to preorder it and then still be waiting for it to arrive when Boards&Bits or Coolstuff is selling and shipping it for 30% less than what I paid.

I have no idea about any discount online shops might offer. It's really up to them.

Preorders will indeed get to you sooner because the games don't have to go through the distribution channels and to the stores and then to you. Preorders get shipped as soon as the boat arrives.

If you want the game even sooner, you could order it using the Europe / Asia link on the website. We can ship to you from Europe in September, some people are pre-ordering that way, but shipping from Europe is expensive (29€).

The game can be played solo but the solo version will be following as a small expansion soon after the release of the game or at the same time if we can. But it won't be included in the box already jam packed !

Any news about the release date of this expansion? Pretty sure I'll get it if I buy the game, but would like to avoid paying separate shipping.

I'm working hard on this expansion. Playtesting a lot all the scenarios.
We expect to have it somewhere between Essen and December 1st.
So that's like a 45 days margin...
We just figured out that having it at Essen might be real tough, so it will probably come before christmas, beginning of December.

We'll tell you more as soon as we have more specific answers
