I reply to all emails I get - musta gotten lost going in or out.

Anyway, we have a final production copy in hand but they are on 2 week holiday in China right now. When they get back they'll finish building the rest and then it's on a boat and headed to the USA. I expect a March 2013 release.

Sorry for the delays, we had to switch printers.

Oh my god! Does this mean that the card backs from the expansion won't match the card backs from the base game? AAAARRRRGGGGHHH! surprise

I got an off the press final copy of the expansion and I put them up against my original print personal copy and aside from a slightly different UV coating you cannot tell them apart. If they are on the stack (which is the only time it matters) they cannot be told apart. Plus even if you do see the shinier card, what's that tell you? That a LD mine is coming up in the 20 spot you can't afoard anyway?

So it's a none issue. Not the 2nd printing the cards were physically different so for sure you can tell, but again, it really doesn't matter for those 6 cards that are mixed into that deck.

With this print run I did get the 2 replacement cards now for the 1st edition print run with the corrected backs. The copy they sent me of my 2nd stage had the cards in the pack, but I was told they'd fix that when they return from the China New Year to pack up the rest of the games. So I will send these replacement cards to anyone sending us a pre-stamped self addressed envelope.

I'm excited about the expansion!

I hope it gets here soon, as my X-Wing minis are now dependent on this pre-order. (Why do I think it's a good idea to throw 2 different game pre-orders in the same shipment? Why oh why?)

It should be going on a boat very soon and then it's 22-28 days to get here. So soon...

Latest update from 2 days ago:

"Got this today from the shippers:

"Please be advised that the above subject shipment will arrive in Long Beach, CA on May. 09, 2013, forward to Fort Wayne by May 22nd."

Lord knows why it takes almost 2 weeks to drive the stuff to Indiana - but nothing I can do about that. Once it's there we'll get them in Milwaukee about 2 days later and start shipping."

Yeah I posted an update today on Kickstarter... the short of it is that customs booth in Poland and in the USA decided to take a hard look at the shipment and cost us a week+ delays and over $1500. Maybe they didn't like a game about NUKES?

Anyway, new date to my warehouse which should be solid is the 29th. We'll start shipping soon as we get them on the 30th or so.

I've decided to include sleeves for everyone for a thank you for waiting.

Well they said they'd be delivered Today at 10-12 in the morning. Well at 2pm they hadn't shown up. I haven't heard anything else so I assume they'll be delivered Monday to the warehouse. Don't these shippers know we are all very anxious!!!

Anyway, from Monday they will be scheduling a shipment to our store in Milwaukee. That will take probably till Wed. Then we're all ready to assembly line these things out the door.

If you're close in the midwest you should have a copy by next weekend I hope.

Once the warehouse has the copies physically on hand they do a solicitation for about 7-10 days. Then all copies to distro are shipped to arrive on one day all over the country which means a 3 day delay. But then online retailers are usually 1 day from distribution.

So short answer is mid to late June. If the online retailer backed the Kickstarter that would be reduced by 1-2 weeks time.
