Hi all! This is a question for the Kickstarter backers:

Have you recieved your copy of this yet? Or have you been told when? I only ask because I read somewhere that one of the advantages of Kickstarting this was that you would get it first. As Essen is fast approaching and a wide release set for Nov 1 that window seems to be shrinking fast. I know other similar Kickstarter promises haven't been fulfilled and was curious if that was happening again.

Thanks!

The last word was that they would ship 1-2 weeks before Essen.

Carl, you love Feld! I'm quite surprised you didn't back this, especially with the addition of ItHappens! Any particular reason you said no?

Really? It's a Queen game - Chicago Express, Paris Connection, and German Railways would all fit in the CE box.

Drew: I have a very limited budget and I had already spent it for the year. Next years budget won't be used until next September. However, my mother insisted on giving me money for my birthday(seriously, who still gets birthday money at 32?) And so I have a little bit of cash flow to spend on a game or two Amerigo is way high up on my wishlist and if I do not buy it soon then I will almost certainly pick it up next September! At this point it would take pretty much all my geekbuddies telling me that it sucks to keep me from buying it

Although I do love Feld Amerigo is really my only autobuy from 2013. Bora looks very good but too hard for those I game with, and Rialto and Bruges don't look special enough(although Bruges still has an outside shot).

Looking forward to some Amerigo reviews, this game looks great!

Pretty much every other bigger game that I have from Queen Games (Kairo, Lancaster, Fresco, Kingdom Builder) has the square format (like Settlers of Catan), which I expected for this as well. It's much bigger than that.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

I'm not sure which shipping service they're using. If they are using Amazon, normally notices are sent out when something ships to you. I haven't received one yet, but here's hoping I get one soon.

Lets hope they are not using Game Salute.

I am hoping we will get notices tomorrow since today is Columbus day and a mail holiday.

I don't think they give notifications. I got it from myUPS. It is from ACD.

Well Queen said they would coordinate shipping in Germany to match the United States so I am hoping my copy is only days away from my door! It would be awesome if I got to play this game this Friday!

It's a bit bigger than Shogun, actually.

People have gotten packages and notifications for Dark Darker Darkest, but not yet for Amerigo as far as we know so I suspect ACD may not be sending it until the end of the week (hopefully).
