Alpha Strike print book retail release date?
« on: 29 August 2013, 21:10:14 »
Has the retail date been announced yet for Alpha Strike? I have a pre-order at Amazon that they say will be delivered August 30th but they still show it as a pre-order so I'm guessing that's wrong.

Well, the full color hardcovers are still printed in China. They have to slow boat over here and then clear customs.  Most of the softcovers are printed in the States now so they tend to show up quicker.
I have spoken.

When they had them on sale at Gencon I was hoping that meant they were ready to start shipping soon.. I guess that was just a smaller initial shipment for that event. I should probably go ahead and kick for the PDF and just start playing.

That would be the small shipment that was flown over.
