I know this is a Target exclusive, but I've checked inventories at local Target stores via their website and it's out of stock at every store I've checked. This includes the entire SF Bay Area and San Diego.

It's also not available via target's website for delivery.

Anyone know where to find a copy?

Thanks,
Jeff

Mayfair Games made a deal to distribute the game exclusively through Target- it may prove to be a deal with the Devil- as everybody I know is having the same results- out of stock...out of stock....

My guess is that it has not been released yet & the pages on the Target websites are just place-holders for when the game comes in.

I was at Target Tuesday and they have the space on the shelf and I even asked a clerk if they had anymore in the back and she said no- I ask when they would be getting it in and she said "We get a truck in everyday." So I said tomorrow? And she said , well it may not be on that truck...I'd call first....

That sounds right.

According to the Mayfair press release:

Mayfair PR wrote:
Star Trek: Catan™ previews at Gen Con, Indianapolis in August 2012 (www.gencon.com) and sold exclusively through U.S.A. based Target® stores beginning in the autumn.

I have Sept 13th stuck in my head, but I'm not sure where I heard that from.

The two Targets I went into both had empty spaces and a price tag for the game.

As an aside there's also been a shelf marker for FFGs X-Win Minis Game for a few weeks as well. That debuted at GenCon right along side of ST Catan, they're both still on the boat for general market I'm sure.

I doubt Target has sold out already; I doubt they've sold ANY already. We'd have heard it on the forms here if someone had picked one up.

It'd be interesting to go back to that Target store in a week and see if they filled that space with something else... since "autumn" is still a bit away and empty shelf space sells nothing. Now, I do HOPE the dedicated shelf space means its presence is imminent.

I think I read somewhere that they'd be in stores in September and that the pre-release was at Gencon. The owner of our local FLGS is NOT happy with the deal that Mayfair made either and personally I don't like it.

I'll still buy a copy but I wont' enjoy it.

As noted in the versions section on the main game page, the release date for the English edition of this game is Sept. 13, 2012 – although some stores apparently have shelved the game early, which means it's possible you'll find it for sale in Target before this date, but nothing is guaranteed.

I do find it strange that so many stores have already made shelf space for them this early. My store here in South Dakota is the same way. 49.99 for those who were still curious.

It's not in any of the local stores here in California as of this moment. Must be shipping across the country.

Will hopefully get here soon!

Found it at my Target in Raleigh yesterday. Seemed to be about 5 copies on the shelf and a few people checking it out too.

I actually went to Target online to find what stores had the game in stock. The closest store listed it as "in stock". When I got there the spot on the shelf was empty. I asked on of the employees and he said they had 4 in the back, so he went and got them.

3 other stores listed the game as "limited inventory". Not sure how many less than 4 that is.

It's now available at Bay Area Targets. I picked up a copy on the way home from work today.
