Does this game have one yet?

I know they will be at GenCon, but not everyone can go to that. Do we know when its supposed to hit stores?

no, as far as I know FFG only gives official release information for when an item is being released at a con. Then (also from what I've seen but could be wrong) the game is released to everyone else 2-4 weeks after. releases at a con are sent by air whereas the rest of the prints are generally by boat from China.

I think this will be shipping very soon as it seems maelstrom games have some proper prices for items

for example the x wing dice has gone down from £25.99 whistle to £4.99 or similar laugh

unfortunately the descent conversion pack has increased from £18.99 to £22.99

so with proper prices on the online store it may mean they are coming soon

No way this takes till November to release. Why would they hit us with all these previews and build the hype if it wasn't going to hit stores for 3 more months? Makes no sense. I'll bet end of August it'll be in stock at stores.

Maelstrom had it as 25th August. Gameslore says September. My bet will be anytime around the first week of September, so it's close enough!

I preordered yesterday, and that store (a swedish online game store) has "preliminary release September 2012". Make of that what you will.

Be on your guard. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.

In addition to that, Target has already cleared shelf-space. I wouldn't be shocked if the game was already here. Shelf-space is a commodity in retail.

Is this game going to be available at Target? That would be cool

Yes, check your local Target. Mine has spaced cleared for the game, says something like "FFG STAR WARS" or "FFG X-WING" on the tag on the shelf, can't remember.

I don't know why, but I find this very exciting

- probably because I go to Target a lot and can see picking up additional ships. Too hard to resist!

The best thing about it being at Target will be that eventually, there is a chance that it goes on clearance, allowing for some very cheap fleet building.
