I checked with Artipia about a week or two ago and they had my name and address correct and said I should be getting it any day now... *crickets* Still no box on my porch. Anyone else? I'm in OK BTW

Do not feel too bad, I am a pre-order customer and may not see it until late November?

I am also awaiting Conan and Empires: Galactic Rebellion. Could be a long month. Fortunately I have thousands of other games to keep me occupied.

It is frustrating to have no idea what is happening and reading reports from others playing the games.

None here either and nothing en route from FedEx. From reading various forum threads, I believe many are in the same boat.

Yep, no game here in Missouri. I'm hoping next week, after that, who knows where are games are! It is a shame as this game looks to be fun. I was hoping for expansions but I don't think I could back them again.

Not a peep in MD. I have Fed Ex Delivery Manager set up so if a label to my address is created I get notified also.

Worst part is it's less than 1.5 hours to get to where they are located from my house....

Nothing here in Maine yet. Good news is the mail comes early in the day! Bad news is that I'll (probably) be disappointed all day when nothing gets delivered today.

Showed up at my door this morning around 10amish.

USPS for shipping, don't remember any tracking info being sent.

Shipping box was pretty beat up (packing material was minimal), but game boxes look fine.

Can't speak to anything else cause I'll be moving soon and won't unwrap them until after the move.

Hope everyone gets theirs soon too.

No game here in North Carolina. Would have been great if it came today since it's my anniversary. I could have pretended it was an anniversary present. It's been so long since Artipia charged my card and I answered the survey that I no longer feel any connection between the game and the large sum of money I paid to (eventually) receive the game.

I also wish they weren't shipping by USPS. Service in my area has been horrible for the last couple of years. We've had a lot of misdeliveries, tracked packages listed as "delivered" on days when the mail carrier didn't even deliver junk mail, and even a package left precariously balanced on the mailbox door (sticking out over the road, no less) because the carrier didn't feel like taking thirty seconds to bring it to the porch. The Project: Elite box will be much too big for him to repeat that last trick, at least.

Nothing in Columbus OH and I don't honestly expect anything at this point. Both these companies have been shady since the original minis were revealed. Massive learning experience for me.

I'm glad I picked up my game at Gencon, but they were missing stuff there so I was put on a list to get the missing stuff shipped to me, but never heard back about that. I got almost everything, so I don't feel totally screwed, but I won't be backing anything from either company at this point unless they show major improvements in communication. It's one thing to have set backs and delays, those are understandable, but not communicating with the individuals that have already paid you is pretty shady. Yes, they have made backer-wide updates, but doesn't seem like they address individuals very well.

It might make it to retail before some of us get our pre-order copies.

Some campaigns are less ambitious or large. Some companies are larger or better organized.

Delays happen, sometimes for a reason.

Be frustrated for the right reasons. My frustrations are the poor and lack of communication. I am just a pre-order customer so I am farther out of the loop than most (I am not sure if I am an afterthought or out of the picture) but some word of progress would be nice. I might not be qualified to get notices (as a non-backer).

Very strange, but that is the way it is.

Don't worry, you've pretty much received the same information as us KS backers. Almost nothing. Drawlabs indicated that there was some trouble at the fulfillment center that they were not shipping the rest due to payment quibbles but did not elaborate. They've been promising an update now for several weeks but it hasn't yet been posted. Artipia isn't any more responsive and usually directs people to contact DrawLabs.

Ah, so they screwed up the funding and ran out of money.

Well, that explains a lot. Get ready for emails demanding more money to ship your copies I guess.
