I ordered some games on amazon.de on October 13. The site gives an estimate delivery of October 23, but I still haven't got them. Should I be worried? How long did it take in your case if you have ordered games from amazon.de? Btw I live in virginia.

Thanks guys

They usually take around 2 weeks. Sometimes a bit less, sometimes a bit more. My bet is it'll arrive early next week.

Agree with the above posters.

I placed an order and it took 3 weeks or so. I almost pushed the panic button, but it arrived safe & sound. I'm confident you'll get your order.

It will depend on which shipping option you chose, but it takes one to two weeks longer than their estimate to get out to Oregon.

I ordered Palaces of Carrara and it took around 2 weeks before it arrived. I'd say anything longer than 3 weeks is too long.

Only had 1 order but it was around 2.5 weeks (a few days before their estimated time of arrival). Shipping box was a bit beat up, not much internal packaging but no noticeable damage to the game boxes (had 2 games, one the size of a ticket to ride and another a small card game)

About 2 weeks to the eastern US, which is worth it (1) to get a game you cannot find in the states, and (2) to have it shipped overseas for a reasonable price. I am finding that smaller items arrive more quickly,

It shouldn't matter but there could be a difference if you used amazon actually or a marketplace seller, as the MP seller may choose a much slower option to ship by or not ship at as fast a speed as amazon might.
The oposite could be true though too and you get it quicker.

True, but not entirely relevant. It's only purchases from Amazon that typically ship to North America at all, let alone at reasonable rates.

I do customer support help volunteering for amazon, so I know MP sellers from all differnent amazon sites ship to NM and very regularly just as when you go to amazon.com and buy from a MP seller and its out of the US. Sure shipping will be per item and not per order and will be quite high, but it's available if you want to go that route.

Let's not make this the war of the day though, I even debated replying but you know the whole internet make your point no matter what thing...yeah.

I still haven't received one of the three games I ordered. I received one on oct 28 and the other on nov 4. Now I'm really worried would they respond if I contact them in English?

They will respond in English. If there is no tracking number they will ask your patience. After that you can ask that they send another copy. Usually takes 3 weeks before they will presume the package lost in transit.

Amazon.de will send you a notification of shipment. That way you at least have something to go on in terms of delivery time. They will also provide an estimated delivery date.
