There are various dates floating about - August 25th, 1st to 2nd week of September, just "September", and I'm sure there's a couple more.

I personally truly believe that it'll be there when it'll be there, and that it'll be less than a month from now. A few days more or less don't really matter to me...

I guess the reason why we didn't get a definite date (just like with all other games from FFG that I'm aware of) is that shipping and transportation are so unpredictable. I think that thus, we'll get it sooner without an announced street date, because announcing a street date would mean they'd have to stick with it, and that they'd have to add safety margins so the product is actually there on that date - and would thus have to be in stock a few days earlier already. Particularly for locations closer to their warehouse, that'd mean a delay of quite a long time between getting the item and being allowed to sell it. Without a street date, there is no such delay.

I hope you're right! I've been chomping at the bit to get my greedy hands on this game.

EDIT: False alarm, this was an inventory error.

Target
Rosemont
7000 Mannheim Rd
Rosemont, IL 60018
(847) 795-1760

Has it listed as limited stock online as of 09-05-2012 @ 1:42 PM CST.

Rosemont is by O’Hare International Airport and Chicago (a central distribution center in the USA with a huge railway hub and such).

I am betting that they are on trucks and rail cars in the US now (if this is not an error).

UK distributor is expecting this around the 20th Sept so should be on shelves the week after.
