For those lucky few of us who got an order through (3 hours of refreshing for me), do we know when the game will ship/how long it'll take to get delivered? Is it a 3-5 business day sort of thing?

I read along these forums that games could take around 10-12 days to arrive home. They're ready to ship about 2k games per day.

I'm more concerned with how they are going to package it for shipping.

They keep saying how they have never done a board game before, so I wonder if they are going to try and ship in a bubble mailer like some new KS creators do, of if they have proper boxes and padding for these.

In one of the thousands of posts today someone (not Riot) mentioned they would be shipping 200 orders per day. I really hope that is wrong.

Have you seen the size of the box? They don't make Godzilla-sized buble mailers.

So it will definitely get in a box. Although its hard to say how well it will be packed. Of course, even with minimum packaging, I'd bet 80% of shipping damage comes from the final handler.

Found it:

Our distribution warehouse is actually in Wisconsin.

I think, at most, we can ship 2k units a day, so if we quickly sell out, it will probably take a week or so to process all of the orders. Plus there will be some transit time. I'd much rather manage your expectations here than to feel like I unintentionally 'promised' something by not speaking up. I suspect units will begin arriving between 2 days and 2 weeks of the order being placed. There may be new complications that arise as we're going through this, but I can assure you we won't be taking orders and then heading to some backroom and doing high-fives. We'll work to get it out to you as quickly as we can, but that may take some time.

Perfect, that's what I was looking for, thanks!

Due to high volume of sales the physical shipping traffic will be really slow and only ship out with trucks that have // in their plate numbers first.
