Preorder and Shipping Plans

Updated May 10, 2020

The most important thing to understand about this process is that there is planned to be generally no mass production game availability except during preorder windows (current preorder window is January-June 2020 for fulfillment starting August 2020).

Some spare copies have been sent to the fulfillment centers, but these are very limited (except for the US where about half of the remaining copies were sent).

AAG Wave 1 Games

The Wave 1 Games are:
  • 18Chesapeake
  • 1817
  • 18MEX
Shipping Plans
    • Preorders made before the Wave 1 cutoff (order #2577, March 23) are shipping now (May 2020).
    • Customers should order Wave 1 games before the end of June 2020 ensure delivery in the Wave 2 fulfillment (see below). This will be the final opportunity to preorder these games. Once the remaining supply sells out at each fulfillment center, it will not be restocked.
    • Some spare copies from Wave 1 were sent to the international fulfillment locations and will be used to fill post-cutoff preorders early as supply allows once the Wave 1 orders have been received.
      • Half the spare copies were sent to the US fulfillment center and are available for ordering now, but other regions are very limited.

      Fulfillment Notes

      With the switch to mass production games, AAG's current fulfillment strategy also changes to simultaneous worldwide fulfillment in staggered fulfillment windows.

      Future of Hand-Made Games

      All-Aboard Games started several years ago, first as a hobby, then fulfilling orders for Deep Thought Games, and now designing and publishing on a larger scale. I am one of the lucky few that gets to turn their passion into a day job (and their basement into an 18xx game factory).
      With that being said, it takes a lot to hand-make games. Resources, time, space, and a lot of physical energy. I'm going to be focusing more of that toward coordinating mass-production games now and in the future. I'll still be hand-making some games, but on a limited basis.

      So, as time frees up to hand make games, these will be made available on the web store. An announcement for any new copies in the store will be made to the AAG mailing list. Titles that are not expected to be mass production in the short term will be prioritized: 1761, 1822CA, 1837, 1858, and 1879, Harzbahn 1873. Some hand-made copies of other games may also be made available from extra parts.
      I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone that helped me get this far. Designers, play-testers, the AAG team, and all of our customers and fans.
