Some (minor) damage to a couple of cards in the promo pack, the main rules had creases in them, but nothing major.

Looks gorgeous, and nice that the Conversion Pack has moulded plastic for the cards. Not sure whether I am going to get this plus Flight into the base box, which is my preference, but we'll see.

Maybe if I take promo2 and put it in the promo 3 box?

Mine arrived today, typical myHermes delivery: lobbed over a 6ft garden gate and left in the rain.

I'm going to have to give up Kickstarting stuff now myHermes seem to be delivering so many of them <sigh>

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

The outer box was ruined but by some miracle, considering there was no bubble wrap or other packaging apart from the outer box, the game box itself got away with only a small corner dent and ripple on the underside.

Honestly, myHermes are a disaster. I'm in another Kickstarter (GamestorePro) where the creator has resent most people's rewards as myHermes has either not delivered or severely beat up the boxes. They really are a false economy.

I think that the problem is that they just recruit pretty much anybody who wants to apply, provided they will sign the necessary waivers. So it is a matter of pot luck whether you get a courier who is conscientious and will go the extra mile (maybe literally) to complete your delivery. I also suspect that since the couriers are self-employed any redelivery attempt effectively comes out of the courier's pocket so there is an incentive to deliver first time however that is achieved.

I received it as well at my work address. Delivery box damaged as well luckily on top where there was some cardbox protection.

Otherwise game box , Evolution cards with rulebook and promo are all fine.

In the end, it's our responsibility if your games are damaged and we will make things right. Please contact Apyna at North Star Games dot com if you have a damaged game. If IdeaSpatcher does not take responsibility then we will. Please include some pictures of the damages. That will help us communicate the problem to IdeaSpatcher if it's a shipping problem or our manufacturer if it was a manufacturing problem. Thanks.

To be fair, mine arrived sucessfully delivered by a friendly chap without any problems (I was in to receive the package). Tbe game was well packed in a sturdy box so no complaints from me.

Anyone else having the Hermes tracking link showing several delivery attempts without anyone knocking or leaving a 'missed delivery' note? According to my link Hermes have tried to delivery on the 3rd, 4th and 5th but unless the cat is shredding the delivery notes and I'm going deaf as far as I'm concerned they haven't bothered.

Hermes aren't interested and won't tell me anything as it's a retailer delivery. Emailed Nift, let's see what they can do. Can't blame North Star as it's now down to the logistics people but it's very frustrating.

The tracking page says they attempted to deliver mine yesterday but failed. Seeing as it's going to my work address which is manned 24/7 I'm not sure how exactly they couldn't deliver there.

Mine arrived today, after 2 failed delivery attempts. All in good order, full of packing peanuts.

RE:
Out of interest, did you receive a missed delivery note the first two times?

i watched the hermes guy from my front window. he got out of his van, walked over, and put the pre-written delivery note through my letterbox without knocking. He didnt even get the parcel out. I popped out and stood in the road in front of the van holding the note up until he got out of the van and lied to my face about it!

Hermes have been awful for years. Even worse than ukmail which is saying something!
