The dice show up, then the manufacturing can be finished. Once it is done it will be shipped via Ocean Freight.

6 weeks is not going to happen.

Yeah, it seems like early December is an optimistic guess, right?

It seems that those Ocean shipments usually take at least 2 weeks. Then customs usually takes like 2 weeks. Thanksgiving could slow things down too. Then TMG needs to organize and ship things, and TMG isn't a huge company so that may take longer than people realize.

I hope it arrives in time for me to take it for Christmas gaming, but I'm not holding my breath. BTW, I'm not disappointed in TMG or anything. I'm just trying to be realistic.

You know for me one of the points of kickstarting is getting a game before the general public. So now it will be handed out at Essen and played and scrutinized before I even get to break the seal.Not a fan.

Only to other Kickstarters...

Most of the time it's the Europeans that have the same complaint - that the Americans get the game before their copes make it across the pond

But we are talkin Essen here. I always need to wait for games after they are released at Essen. This was going to be my chance to get it before the Essen folks who can afford to travel to Europe. But hey its his business let him handle it how he sees fit. I can just wait months after Essen as usual.

Do you expect him to just shaft all of the people who elected Essen pickup, just so that you can get it before they can?

The Essen pickups are still Kickstarter supporters, after all. My understanding is that he will not have extra copies to sell to the general public.

Given that one of the options on the Kickstarter page where you pledged said "Essen Pickup", I have no idea why you'd expect that.

You were promised the game a month before the general public, and that's exactly what you will receive.

Yeah after serious thought my comments were only based on disappointment in longer delays. What can you do it is what it is.
