Seriously, pipe up when you get yours.

I'm hoping mine arrives tomorrow.

Two guys have posted on the BoB kickstarter page that their packages arrived without any shock-absorbing material to protect the game boxes inside. One seemed OK with a little wear and one said that the games' boxes got pretty beat up at least at the corners.

Any word on this from you lucky early birds?

Well, I think mine was among the ones sent out first (seeing how the status on KS changed), but I'm on the other side of the world...

Mine came in a large priority mail flat rate box (the 1 foot cubed one). The games pretty much fill the box in 2 dimensions with about an inch or two of space on each side of the other dimension (the sides). No packing materials. My box was a bit dented on one corner, but the game boxes and their contents are pristine. Mine traveled cross country from VA to CA. We usually get the most damage on UPS deliveries and much less so on USPS.

If you only have minor damage and dont need replacement parts, all USPS priority mail comes with $50 of insurance automatically and the receiver can submit an insurance claim (it used to be that you had to go through the shipper, but they changed that policy at some point). I had that happen with another game (51st State). There was a puncture through the shipping box and the game box (though no contents were damaged). I submitted a claim directly to USPS and uploaded 2 pictures to show the damage and a couple weeks later I got a $10 check in the mail.

What does this mean? Is there something you can monitor there.

I think one or two updates ago they said they're going to update the status in your KS page:

"Because we ship in batch labels YOU WILL NOT BE RECEIVING A SHIPPING NOTICE. However, on the kickstarter page, when we print your label I move your order from Pending to Reward Delivered."

Actually, every KS pledge regardless of status says "reward delivered". That part of "view pledge" is a section where you can mark an item as received once it is delivered.

In the comments to Update #35 (announcing the shipment of the first 100 games, the Worthies did answer the question if users will see the status change:

Worthington Publishing wrote:
No, it is an admin item for us, but it lets us know when we shipped and that we have shipped.


TL;DR: You can't see the status change on your KS pledge page.

I live near Portland OR and got all three games today. They are great looking. The Battle Manuel is a work of art. I will break out TA once my game table is freed up from play testing the scenarios for Old Breed South Pacific.

To much BoB goodies all at once.

Mine arrived in NJ yesterday afternoon. I bought all 3 games. I had Ghost Panzer already. I am pleased with the contents - revised rules, counters look good, bonus counters, Battle manual, the whole 9 yards. Double thumbs up for Worthington.

Hello! Received mine today -- nice large package! Sadly, the Ghost Panzer game on the bottom of the box got punctured in shipment (there was no packing material at all). Haven't opened it yet to see if contents are damaged, but a decent hole through outer box, plastic, and game box.

Excited to break it out, just have to survive work this weekend.

I live in Washington state, BTW.

I got mine on Wednesday. Shipping box was a little crumpled, but all three of the games (and the extras) were undamaged inside.

Mentioned in another BoB game thread (I can't keep track), I got mine yesterday, but had to pay CA$30 customs. One corner of the TA box was pushed in, victim of being the game on top, but it's just cosmetic. SE and GP are totally undamaged.

Same here but in France : I got package today but had to pay 47€ of customs, and one corner of the box of Ghost Panzer is pushed in (it was in the bottom of the package), and the top of the Screaming Eagle one a little bit pushed too (it was on top of the package) but I don't think it's too serious, and Texas Arrow is totally undamaged. I'll check all of this later but I don't worry too much, what's important is what's inside

If I may ask... What are this custom rights ? (It's the first time I receive a shipment like this, so it's the first time I encounter that )

But I'm so happy to finally received all of this !! Everything looks wonderful, that's so great !

(oh, you made a mistake in the spelling of my city (first letter ), but at least shipment arrived without trouble ! )

Still nothing. And I'm pretty certain mine was one of the first 100 batch to have been mailed.

Got mine today (Brisbane, Australia) - nothing damaged, everything looks great, an upgrade from my original Band of Brothers: Screaming Eagles for sure.

That's it. I'm flying to Brisbane to play with Gil, if mine doesn't arrive today.
