I know some kickstarters only produce enough product for the backers and some produce enough for local game stores. Which is this one planning to be?

Thanks. And congratulations on getting funded.

This was posted as part of Update #12

After Kickstarter

After we deliver the games and other rewards to our backers in November, the game will be available for purchase at Amazon, at our distributor GameSalute's online store, and at any local game store that will pick it up. Every copy of the game available through these retail channels will have the upgraded components: the engraved dice and the explorer meeples.

There's a chance that the expansions will be available through at least some of these retail channels eventually. Copies will be sent to backers with their games in November, but the expansions most likely not be available for retail at that time. We hope to make them available in the future.

The game will not be for sale at Essen, but some of our Kickstarter backers will be picking up their advanced copies. Game Salute will have a few extra copies at Essen in their booth (Hall 1, C124) for people to look at.

We should be getting rewards to backers late November/early December, and then other pre-orders should start shipping immediately after that.

Manufacturing is complete, and the bulk of the games are making their way across the ocean to the United States now. We're locking down the final logistics with our manufacturing and fulfillment companies for getting all the rewards to backers, and we'll be posting an update on Kickstarter shortly. (I'll be sure to add a link to that update here.) The games should be available on Amazon shortly after that.

Just curious... the Foxtrot Games site says "After backers receive their rewards, Relic Expedition will officially be released in January 2014."

If you look on the Game Salute product page, it says "Expected Release: March 2014."

Is January still the expected release for non-backers? I assume Game Salute is just playing it safe with the time-frame since the games seem to be inbound.

You are exactly right. The games left the manufacturer near the end of October, and we are currently planning for them to reach the US this week or next week. If that happens, we plan to get the rewards to backers by the end of December and then have the official release in January.

Thanks for the link, Randy!
I saw the Watch it Played and thought the game looked fun. I went ahead and ordered.
