The Kickstarter project page lists "Estimated delivery: Feb 2013." However, the survey that was sent now states, "Please note that Boss Monster will not ship until Early Spring 2012." Obviously the year is wrong, but Spring doesn't officially start until late March, so I guess an April delivery time is the best to hope for at this point?

1/20/2013: Updated subject.

Re: Already Delayed!
I know February is technically late winter, but I think it could be described as early spring. You would never hear someone say the game will ship in late winter. Unless the brothers explicitly say something about it shipping later than Feb, I wouldn't read into it too much.

I don't think it would have made me change my pledge if it ships later than what they had listed. I didn't even notice the date till I saw it on a forum.

Think it would be more concerns for people moving around.

Like as a University Student my mailing address will change cause of that knowing its either near April or February.

Re: Already Delayed!
Might this be a delay for copies of BM for non-kickstarters? Because I assume the estimated release date of Feb 2013 was for those who pledged for the game.

No, anyone who pre-orders now should theoratically get their cards at the same time as Kickstarter backers. Maybe a weeks difference so they don't get confused about which packages to put the exclusive cards in but pretty close to the same time.

Honestly, I think the poster of this thread it just reading to much into when spring 'officially' starts. If they were planning on delaying delivery that would have told us. I doubt they even have enough information to know if it will be delayed at this point.

I think it's also worth pointing out the enormous nummber of stretch bonuses they were able to achieve, and I would think that had to have some impact on delivery dates.

Re: Already Delayed!
In a recent update to the Kickstarter page they mentioned that a February release date is still the goal.

Ah, well. These things happen.

I'm keen to play the game, but I can wait until then. At least they're doing what they can to allow people to play the game sooner than May! (print and play etc.)

I assume every Kickstarter I support will be delayed at least six months.

I don't really start fretting until things have been pushed back a year.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

I'm not surprised at all and I'm not really upset either. Pretty much everything on KS is late. Even later for things from new companies.

As long as it actually is released and is good, then I'm happy.

I chalk it up to a rookie publisher who just didn't understand how much lead time things really take. I would assume that they will be more accurate in planning timelines in the future now that they have learned the hard way.
