Release Date

Recommended Posts

Although I really want to play it now, I kind of consider this a blessing.  It'll give me time to recover financially after the holidays.  I'll just have to find something else to occupy my time until then.  Still heavily hinting at my girlfriend to pick me up Fury of Dracula.  I have no shame.

I think February will end up being right on the money OD (is it okay if I call you OD? happy.gif). I just pre-ordered the game off of Amazon.com for 50 bucks (special sale price) and the target release date is set for February 7th. Whether that ends up being the absolute exact date is up for debate, but it's worth noting that until this point, Amazon hasn't had the game listed at all. I'd say that it's sudden listing is good sign that things are going swell at the printer's and the game is on target for a Q1 release.

I just read in the forum of the German publisher that the German version will be printed along with the first reprint of the English version. So no synchronous release. I'm sad now... llorando.gif

 

Which means that you have to buy lots of copies so it has to be reprinted quickly! gui%C3%B1o.gif

Do you have a link? I didn't see anything of the kind. Or is the German publisher someone other than the Heidelberger Spieleverlag?

Ah, thanks. So the LotR LCG is an exception (being released in all languages at the same time). Good to know, but in this case a pity.

@Lyker: Maybe el Igore has the same problem I have: My fellow boardgame players are the ones having trouble with English boardgames and will not play them. Myself, I'd happily use the English version!

Firstly, thanks for the compliment! sonrojado.gif

And yes, it is right as jhaelen said. I wouldn't mind playing the game in English, but most of the people in my gaming-group wouldn't be that happy with it, especially with a text heavy game like this.

The preview event is Feb 19th & 20th.  I expect the game to go on sale 1-2 weeks after that, based on FFG's normal timelines after preview events. So, last week of Feb or first week of March.

Today the release date on Amazon.de was 8.2.2011. I called the hotline and the girl didn't have an other date in her system. But on Amazon.com there is a date in march. I hope it will be in my mail car next week but I don't believe it will be. Hope will die at last.. ;)

I preordered today with Amazon Prime :D

The preview event for the game is february 19th-20th.

Do you think FFG will allow amazon to ship a game before its being previewed?

I have noted Christian Peterson's posts on BGG concerning discussions about Amazon release dates. He basically said that he had no idea where they get their release dates from because it certainly doesn't come from FFG. He then went on to say that its pretty amazing that Amazon has release dates for FFG games when FFG themselves dont know a precise release date for their own games.

Of course, Mr. Peterson could be blowing smoke up our rear ends, but since he runs the company, I am more likely to take his word than Amazon regarding release dates.

With that said, how accurate do you think Amazon's release dates are now? Especially considering the various release dates they give to their customers as seen below?

I know that release dates can be erroneous and guess work, but I'm showing through Baker & Taylor, a distributor of Fantasy Flight Games, that Mansions of Madness has a July 12, 2011 release date.

I hoping the Amazon release date of March 8th is the correct one!

I'm looking at Ingram, another distributor, and they're listing March 8th.
