It was released, Joel. At Essen. The rest is up to Containers and Customs (an idea for a new game?).

Essen is in Germany

I'm curious if anyone has status on when it will "appear" in the US.

See FunAgain Preorders and Essen

btw when Funagain gets their Essen shipment in is a different question than when Snowdonia will be released in the US. As far as I know, there are no plans for a US release, just stores importing of the European release.

The short answer is whenever the ship arrives and the order makes it through customs.

Thanks. I will hit them up. I noticed they had other stuff in from Essen. Was curious if there was some hold up with Snowdonia.

Funagain took a euro pallet away with them at Essen...that's 210 copies :-)

I believe they're all in the US - in time for BGGcon

A much better answer than I could have given you.

It was released and people who preordered directly and paid for shipping already have it. Funagain are not a source of "released" truth, they are one of many game stores.

But they are also the only place to preorder in the USA.

I bet if you offered to pay shipping, you could have gotten a copy directly (and have already had it). Similarly you could have bought a copy from an online store like Leisuregames days or a week ago and probably already have had it.

It's just not the case that 'not a funagain yet' stops a game being 'released'

I agree that it's already been "released", but I was just explaining why the OP may have been wondering/confused....since Funagain is the only local outlet that we could preorder from, emphasis on local.

I was informed that my pre-order was ready to ship as well. However, when I asked about the Snowdonia: Essen 2012 Promo Cards for the pre-orders, I was told that they did not receive any, so I'm not sure what the deal is with that since pre-orders were supposed to get them.

Folks,

At Essen Spiel we received a large number of copies of the four promo cards for Snowdonia - plenty, I thought, for everyone who took the time to pre-order / come and see us.

Most of the shops that took games from us at the Spiel were also able to get some of these cards but, it seems, gremlins have been causing mischief and, as has been remarked upon in various forums, the availability of these cards has dwindled eg. at Surprised Stare Games, we only have a few copies left of Little Jimmy and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

We're making a PDF of the cards (fronts and backs) available on our website in the next few days; please feel free to download, print off and sleeve as you see fit (you will need Agricola-sized sleeves for preference - they're what I used in play-testing) and I hope that this will tie you all over until we can find out what's happened to the 'real thing':

http://www.surprisedstaregames.co.uk/Snowdonia/index.htm

Best wishes,

Tony

I too was under the impression that Funagain would include the promos with preorders, or I would have just picked up the game at Essen while I was there...
