Talisman Pre-Orders have been going on for a while now. Speculation continues on the release date of the reprinted 4th Edition Revised set. With Pegasus Spiele being pretty hush- hush with this announcement one can only wonder if they are using the reprint run to get an idea of what the demand for the game will be with minimal advertising cost.
But have not fear we are here to speculate and I think that we can expect to have these copies in hand in May 2019. Here is why. We have several dealers that are reporting release dates right around the end of April and into May time frame. the first being Cardhaus. See that the date for this site is April 30th 2019.
If these dates are subject to change I think we can expect that these items are aiming for this time range. Moving into another dealer and their posted date we have CoolStuffInc.com. This dealer is also stating a May 2019 expected release where the pre-order notes are stating that the April/May 2019 date is subject to change. This suggests that another dealer is shooting for the exact same time frame window for the product. on another page for their site they are sitting in the status of “On their way”. I have never pre-ordered through CoolStuffInc. before so I cannot speak for how accurate their pre-order dates tend to be.
It’s important to note herer as well that on the GTS Distribution website that the product had an order due date of 3-19-2019. Depending on what the turn around rate on printing this game would be that seems to fall in line with giving time to print for a May release. You can check that out here: https://www.gtsdistribution.com/BOARD-GAMES/TALISMAN-REVISED-4TH-EDITION-THE-CATACLYSM-EXPANSION.asp
So with all this being said I think there is a solid chance that we will see the print run start in May 2019. Let me know if you think that we will be getting the product in May or if that might be to early and we can expect it later in the year.
