I'm at BGGcon but I just got notice that Tahiti will be in the warehouse next week. So I wanted to quickly tell you all we should start shipping in two weeks! We will sent out surveys for addresses shortly. James
I got to play somebody's nice PnP copy at BGG.CON (I printed one out myself but ran out of steam halfway through cutting it out).
I was really happy with how the game played -- turns were pretty quick, and there was a nice blend of luck and skill, and it having "friendly ties" (no laborious splitting and reassigning victory points) along with all goods being automatically delivered at end of game makes the game very accessible for lighter gamers while still providing interesting decisions.
I'm glad I backed the game, and look forward to receiving my copy.
