Oh, totally understand that it was tongue in cheek, as I hoped my response would have been taken.

Actually, it appears that I fall between the two. Does that make me a Neek or a Gerd?

 

EDIT: I prefer neek.  :)

It went on the boat in July. Which should have had it out late august. But that strike at the ports in my city for 3 months in spring kind of blew the 5 to 6 week boat time out of the water. Not FFGs fault. They have no control over the port.

Oh I don't think anyone's blaming FFG.

People are just wondering what the delay is.

So, is the ports in your city where they actually send the stuff out from then?

Because if there was a strike at the main port for sending things out then I understand why they're delayed.

But there's been no official word.

Strongholds is what I find intriguing.  It was supposed to be out per their announcement in Q2.  Now maybe it's out in Q4, very mysterious I think.

 

Initial announcement is irrelevant once we can see it on the upcoming page and track its progress.

August is extremely optimistic for something that went on the boat on July 23rd. 6-8 weeks has been the norm for a long time.

So these books are "made in China," and then shipped to the US where they are then shipped to various distributors. A good majority of the shipping from China goes through Los Angeles. Last spring there was near work stoppage at the ports in LA and things got WAAAAAY backed up. It is reasonable to assume that they are still working their way out of the backup.

The ports didn't completely close either from what I read, it was the port admin wouldn't pay for OT on the weekends for the Longshoremen so product backed up.  

 

I agree also I have a feeling something on FFG's side was in play, as Stronghold was at the printers in Q2, which makes it pretty unlikely a product is going to launch in the same Q it's going to print.

 

Now of course it might not be all that mysterious, could just be some issue at the printer where it was all messed up.  Could be they juggled schedules because decisions were made in regards to what products to focus on before Gencon so the budget wasn't there.  Who knows.  I like mysterious options better, more fun...
