    The boxed FW releases usually come to us New Englanders like about 2-3 months after everywhere else.

    We got an assload of 14 and 15, then shockingly little 16. So who knows what to expect for 17. But it was released a month ago, so it should drop any time in the next few weeks. (or more, as FW is known to do in MA)

    As said above, don't hold your breath...

    I just found a box of XVI last week while BCBS hunting...had not seen the Silver long box before. Seems like there is a somewhat wide distribution of FW but very few to everyone.

    It's probably hitting all of Boston on normal delivery trucks then, so just keep your eyes peeled.

    I got one today at CBC Belmont. I called when I saw it on FB. I'd imagine you'll see a few places get them this week if you follow closely to social media
