The display cases said September. Targets have cleared shelf space for them. I would imagine it has to be soon since they don't want to waste shelf space that could be carrying other product.

I was fortunate enough to grab 2 copies of the game at Gencon, and I haven't even opened them yet *duck* They were running out of them fast though, and I'm talking I grabbed one of the last 40, and when I came back 1 hour later, they were all gone. As were the expansions and the additional miniatures.

Yeah I had a Y-wing and Tie Advanced in my hand ready to put back and when I noticed they were all gone I bought them both. I do wish I had splurged and bought an additional copy of the base set. Having the extra dice and rulers would be nice.

How much were the base sets selling for at the convention?

I'm going to Star Wars Celebration, and will probably have a chance to buy it there.

Thanks!

Thanks guys. When I called the two gaming shops near me they both say pretty much the same thing, "when it's released." I keep checking on the Super Target near me too, but nothing yet.

So it is an exercise in patience. cry

GameStop has 9/7 as a release date on their website, but who knows accurate that is?

The game and expansions are available on Amazon (through Funagain) and they have a release date of September 19.

I just hope it's not too much longer than the Netrunner release. I have both on my CSI preorder, and I'm worried about one holding the other up.

Which means that you'll get your game some time towards the end of October if you order through Amazon, probably, because they don't get enough stock to fill all preorders. And that they pulled the September 19 date out of their collective ass.

I asked for a more specific date for the German version on the Heidelberger forum, and they were both very forthcoming with information and very open about not actually knowing. It's not certain when the ship will arrive yet, when it arrives it's not certain how long customs will take, and then it's not certain how long several levels of transport and logistics will take to get it to the stores. I don't think that'll be much different for the US.

I passed up a chance to buy the game yesterday at Star Wars Celebration. I have it on pre-order, and there are enough games I own but haven't played that I didn't see the need. I did talk to some FFG guys and distributors about a release date, Borderlands, and a Rex expansion. Talk about cagey! It was like they worked for the CIA instead of a board game company. They wouldn't say much. The distributor told me mid to late September for X-Wing.

I posted this in another thread a couple of days ago. The SE Wisconsin Target distribution center shows the game will be at the center on August 29th, so I am guessing to have the game in hand by the end of the week.

Dates do change, but the space on the shelves has been cleared for a while now...PLUS, the same distribution center showed Star Trek Catan scheduled to be at the center on August 23, even though the game was not supposed to be released until "fall." I had the game in hand on August 24.

So, I am hoping very seen, but we shall see.

But don't be fooled by the radio, the TV, or the magazines. They'll show you photographs of how your life should be but they're just someone else's fantasies.
