So Greater than Games just sent out an update to thier Kickstarters.

Apparently their boat that was supposed to be on US dock this week hasn't even left China due to the Typhoons. I wonder what that means for the X-wing shipments.

Well, I've ordered the German (from Heidelberger) version because I plan to play this with my son - and that one has been pushed back to September anyway.

Ah well

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened...

How long ago did FFG post that this was "on the boat"? It does take some time to cross the Pacific, so I would assume that this probably left before all the trouble that has been happening in China.

In fact, if FFG had intended to have the game at Gen Con next weekend, I would think that it is probably already in American waters by now. I would be surprised if this was not the case at this point.

The product coming to GenCon never saw a boat, it was air shipped to be here in time.

And my point wasn't being made to the 1% who could make it to GenCon, it was for the 99% of us who have to wait for the normal shipment.

If the boat that is suppose to be in US dock this week, it should left China 3 - 4 weeks ago. There wasn't a Typhoons back than.

Something is wrong about that statement.

The boat left somewhere around the 27th of July. At lest, that's when FFG updated the upcoming page of their website. They have a tendency to update it a little behind schedule, so I wouldn't be surprised if it left a few days earlier than that. In any case, it's probably been out on the ocean for little over 2 weeks now. About one month to go before it hits our shores!
