Release Date for Forgotten Waters Pushed Back

It's happening everywhere. It's just a sign of the times (going forward in reverse?). Games are having their release dates pushed back. Plaid Hat Games was hoping to avoid it, but that doesn't look like it'll be the case for Forgotten Waters. They've posted an update with new information about when and where you'll be able to get the game.

From the post:

Due to forces outside of our control, the retail release date for Forgotten Waters has been pushed back. We do not have a new retail release date as of yet, but we will keep you updated on that as the Covid-19 pandemic progresses. That said, we still want to honor the original release date of April 10th to the best of our ability. We’ve seen that, for many, games have been a welcome way to stay occupied during this period of isolation and we know that some of our customers are really looking forward to that April 10th release. We also intend to provide an online tool to help players play games of Forgotten Waters over the internet with one another, with only one player needing to own a copy of the game.

At the same time, we recognize that brick and mortar board game retailers are really struggling right now, and, as a result of releasing Forgotten Waters early, we are tempting some of their loyal customers to order from us rather than from them. So, starting now, customers will have the option to enter the name and address of their favorite local game store when ordering Forgotten Waters from us.  We will send each local game stores a check for $12 (20% of the price of the game) for each customer that orders Forgotten Waters from us and mentions them as their favorite local game store.
