Default When will the physical Dungeon Fantasy Box be available again?

In the first place I will apologize if this is the wrong forum to post this question.
Is it known when the physical Dungeon Fantasy box is available again? I preordered it at a german game store and they don't know yet when it will be available again. If it takes some time I might want to buy the pdfs in the meantime. So far I was lucky to get the physical GM Screen and the DF companion.
If the question is wrongly placed in here please advise me where I might place it.

Unknown.

It looks like there's a Kickstarter in the works where they'll offer a new bestiary and a reprint of the box set. However, there's no date attached to that yet. It is also not clear that if the Kickstarter takes place and is successful that the physical box set will become available through normal distribution channels rather than through the Kickstarter itself. I suspect your best bet is to keep an eye out here over the next several months and, if and when the Kickstarter happens, get in on that rather than hoping it'll percolate through to your local game store.

Or, yes, buy the PDFs. Those are absolutely available right now, as opposed to the physical game which might become available at some as yet undefined point in the future.

Thanks for the advise. I will look out for the bestiary KS. In the meantime I purchased the pdf as I want my son to start with roleplaying and GURPS as soon as possible.

Your best bet for tracking the launch of a new Dungeon Fantasy campaign on Kickstarter is following the Warehouse 23 account.

Score! The GM Screen comes with Delvers To Go which is worth the price right there. All of the new players I've introduced to the game love browsing through that book to see how various characters can be built. I've also made character sheets for all of them that I provide as options for pickup games and sessions with my school's RPG club. A few of them are a bit grim (or lecherous) for kids, but we just swap those disads out for others that work better.

DFRPG is some of the best money I've spent on an RPG in the past 35 years. My school has four boxed sets. I have my own box. And my players and I have all bought the PDFs for reference when we're not at the table with the books. We've gotten a LOT of mileage out of it in the ~18 months that it has existed.

You might also check local game stores I know there is a game store in Austin that has 3 of the boxes.

Is it fair to expect the Kickstarter to happen in the second half of this year?

I don't think we'll have to wait that long . . .

Sadly the situation here in Europe is bleak in the game stores. :(

To be clear: Not have to wait until the second half of the year for a Kickstarter project. Delivery of the final game and expansion, if the project is successful, would be late 2019 or early 2020.
