Is there any real news about when this will be available? It's been up for pre order for over a year on some sites. If anyone has any news on this soon let me know.

I'm fairly sure I've seen someplace that the US release was on the 10th of December, in the UK I've seen on gameslore they're expecting it by 12th of december, so as of now I'd say it's pretty likely.

If the upcoming page is accurate it is still 'On the Boat' and has been for 3ish weeks.  

That could mean we could see it within 1 to 4 weeks generally.

The Netherlands get's the boot once again as it seems to be here late januari.

Damn I have some personal days to spend in week 1 of januari now that seems it won't be filled with games and laughter.

This is what worries me, as if they want to actually sell the game for Christmas it will need to be on the short end of that range.  Sure 3 weeks from now is technically "by Christmas," but they won't get any Christmas sales if it doesn't hit stores until Christmas Eve… Two weeks from now will get it to people who preordered before Christmas, but not really give them time to drum up any more sales.  One week from now is probably about as late as they'd want to release it to get any sort of Christmas boost.  *crosses fingers*

I hope we get it by Christmas!  I am dying to get the cards in my hands… but there is a Los Angeles/Long Beach Port Strike going on right now and it may delay things.  I have been following this strike due to my job being in transportation/global shipping but also and more importantly- to get these cards before Christmas!  I hope things get wrapped up soon.  It is all over the internet right now.  I'm not sure if FFG ships to the port in LA, but if they do, ships are just sitting there untouched because of the labor strike which prevents containers from being unloaded.

I suspect the port strike will get resolved rather quickly. They certainly picked a good time of the year to strike as with it being almost Christmas they will probably get whatever they want.

They're expecting that begginer game for the SW RPG to be in stores in two weeks, so I'm hoping that will bode well for the LCG.

I assume he is asking something insane. Which considering the game is almost out is not likely to happen. I would not pay more than retail value as really I can just wait and then support my FLGS instead. And not have to wait for it to ship to me.

If I can only sell mine for a little above retail, I will just keep them. The game is awesome! But, if someone wants one really bad, and offers me enough, I would certainly ship one out overnight delivery. I don't see how that is insane?

I never said your reason for doing so was insane. I said that I assumed the price you were asking was insane. The game is about two weeks away at this point so getting a lot more than retail is not as likely as a month ago. However put yours on ebay and no doubt someone will throw some money your way.

You can also preorder from teamcovenant.com which also has a nifty "subscription" feature for the Force Packs (pay for 12 months at a time - at a discount- and get the next year of Force packs delivered as soon as they can ship them).  Partially self-serving plug: they also have several interesting blogs on the site about the game, to help whet your appetite while you wait.

More specifically, you can order the core from Team Covenant here. There are links to tons of awesome blogs in the comments of this blog. If you're interested in the force pack subscription, you can get all the info on the Subscription page


Do or do not, there is no try.
