I noticed this a few days ago on the FFG Upcoming page. It had been updated to "Expected by: Q1 2013 "

I would have posted here sooner ... but I hate being the bringer of bad news. You don't get many tips or thumbs. It's a miserable life.
Still at least there's Christmas to look forward to. I was hoping to get On The Doorstep. Damn.

That sucks but I believe in thumbing the messenger rather than shooting ... far less mess and clean-up involved that way

This and the fact that the new X-Wing ships have been delayed until February could be a blessing in disguise for the old pre-Xmas wallet.

Yeah, we're going to stick to playing Talisman: The City over the Christmas period. Ah. Damn again.

Just between us guys ... how well do you thing the Hobbit expansion and a Millenium Falcon with a few A-Wing fillers will go down as a Valentines gift for the girlfriend? Too old-fashioned?

Are the Hobbit Sagas suppose to be a standalone games or can the cards be mixed in with other decks for use in other adventures.

You still need a copy of the core set for tokens and threat dials etc.

There isn't enough player cards in the Hobbit expansions to play full decks really so another reason to have other expansions.

The player cards from the Hobbit expansions can also be used in player decks to use in other quests (except the Baggins sphere cards and the treasures).

However, the quests are stand alone, you do not need any other encounter cards from other expansions to play these quests.

Aaargh! This is bad news. My entire coolstufinc order (placed yesterday) will not ship till this is in. I also have the Mage Knight - Lost Legion expansion on the same order and was really hoping to have it over the holidays. Oh well, cest la ve!

note: I wonder if collstuffinc will let me remove an item or split the order. I'm off to check. Of course this assumes MK-LL comes out on time

They are not standalone games, they require at least the core set to play.

EDIT: Woops, didn't see someone above had already responded.

They will. I've done it before when an item was delayed. Just send their customer service account an email, or give them a call, and they'll take care of it.
