The new expansion is officially on its way, being shipped to FFG as we speak, if I understand the "on the boat" status correctly.  For those more familiar with FFG's time tables, any good guesses as to how far it is away from being in our hands?  I'd like to guess a month at most.

Usually it's 4-6 weeks on the boat, then 1-2 weeks on the truck before it hits stores.  Peter Olotka has been saying "January" and then "January-ish" for the release date, so I'll predict the first week of February!

The boat could have been underway for as much as a week before they updated the Upcoming page, due to the holiday break.

I wish I were on that boat.  Anyone know if FFG is hiring deckhands?

I think boat fuel might be more appropriate, but then again, maybe it already has boat fuel, unless they're paddling, which is beginning to seem more and more like a possibility.

Let us make a pact to start a new thread when the boat arrives, since every time I see this thread has updated, I just get my hopes up.  I know, I am now as guilty as the others by adding to it, hence the pact.

Hail the coming boat!

I have to update it one more time, sorry, to say: what if these games (gasp ) weren't made in China? We could make them anywhere on the North American continent, have toxin-free components, fewer hopelessly and irreparably maimed miniatures (if any!), and not be supporting the world's most despotic government's labor practices while polluting the oceans and burning a ridiculous amount of fossil fuels.  Whatcha think o' that?

Oh, and we'd have our damned games quicker too.

Sure.  Okay, they printed the expansion in the U.S.  Now it's $40.  You get to answer all the e-mails complaining about the price.  ;-)

Good thing you beat me to it.  I would have said the same thing, but with detail about why it would cost 40 bucks; the kind of detail that just starts fights. ;-)

I'm with The Warp.  Could we have radio silence until someone actually spots a change of status on the product?  Obviously, you do not have to answer this post!

Hail the coming of the boat!

I think you missed Jack's point.  Since it would be virtually impossible to maintain radio silence, his idea is that we should all agree that when there's some real news somebody will start a new thread so we can all safely ignore this one without missing anything.

So I did.  But don't I have some authority as thread creator?

...no?  Oh well.

It would be easier if the thread were kept silent until then since I have been subscribed to this thread waiting for news.  I can't subscribe to a potential thread. 

Well, I guess they'll update the site when that happens, and I'm subscribed to Cosmic's RSS.  I'm just so tired of waiting that I wanted to have the news completely flood my inbox when it hits!

Well, it may be a bit longer than we thought...

No Cosmic Conflict on there, at least through the middle of February.
