Just spent the last several hours unsleeving my proxies, adding in Empires, and reorganizing my tokens. Good times. I wonder when I'll get to play with it! (If anyone wants to come to Columbia, I'm down for games LOL)

Just got my copy from a coworker from Portland, OR, who bought it at his FLGS before flying to Germany. Is this the first copy in Europe?  ;D

I can report no copies yet sighted in the UK, so probably. :(

Why can't I have a friend who regularly travels to the US on business?  Or, you know, any friend?

I will try very hard not to use this as an excuse to vote to leave the EU.

On the box, the EU distributors are listed (only with snail mail addresses): Bergsala Enigma Denmark A/S and Esdevium Games Ltd in the UK. Maybe you can get some info from Hampshire?

They have a weekly newsletter (it appears on the website on Friday afternoon, I believe) that announces new releases.  Let's keep our fingers crossed for this Friday.

So last night, through the grace of Fortune, I managed to buy three Dominates in one turn.  That, combined with Castles, led me to get 127 that game, more than the other 3 players combined.

Just got my copy from Miniature Market today. Looks like I got a bad print. Most of the first stack (Archive-Forum) are off-centered front and back. Some are quite noticeable e.g. Charm, Crown. Some are quite subtle e.g. Archive. Groundskeeper pack has some subtly off-centered cards too. The other pack seems fine.

Sorry about the poor lighting.

Looks like they haven't fixed the issues with the manufacturer. And poor quality control on the side of the publisher.

I think I might have a few cards as subtly off as Archive is in that picture, but I don't have anything nearly as bad as Crown. I'm sure if you talk to RGG you can get those cards replaced.

Definitely contact RGG.

My Forums were off pretty badly, and they sent me replacements. I got them a few days ago, and the new ones are perfect.

Esdevium's latest newsletter isn't on their website yet, but this morning I received an email from Board Game Extras (which is where I always buy my Dominion expansions from) saying that Empires is being released next week.  That suggests to me that it's going to be announced in the neswletter.  Maybe our long wait on this side of the Pond is nearing its end.

Report from the UK; I just picked up Empires from my FLGS here in Reading, Berkshire!

So, British players, it's out there in the wild. Happy hunting!

Darn, just before some forum regulars meet for the "European release party" in Karlsruhe.
Well, as too many have voted for the Brexit we can probably still consider next weekend the European release party...

Well, I haven't played it yet, though I have sleeved the cards!  Your launch party sounds awesome and I definitely think it counts! 

(Of course, the UK remains in the EU... and even if it leaves it will still be in Europe because... well... geography...)

I'd come myself, except I think my wife might consider my travelling to Germany to play Dominion as grounds for divorce.

Vielen gluck!

Look on the bright side: that would give you more time free for playing Dominion.  :)

There was a somewhat unusual production error in my set of Empires: only 9 Archive cards but 11 Forum cards.  The fact that the shortage of Archive cards was balanced by an excess of Forum cards (Archive and Forum are the first and last cards in one of the packs) presumably reveals something about how the contents of the set are collated.

Until such time as I receive my tenth Archive card I have temporarily found a use for one of the several blank cards from previous sets.
