Like many folks on BGG I enter into the contests for games I think look cool, and way back at the end of last year I entered into City Council's contest and lo and behold. I won! I still have the email tucked neatly in my inbox, but what I lack is the game. I've contacted Golden Egg twice now, and received only silence for my efforts. I wouldn't even mind if I was told my winning is in error and I was to receive nothing, I would just like acknowledgement.

So the point of my post is to try to find other winners for the bgg contest and see if they managed to receive anything or not. I hope this doesn't' come across too 'rant'ish.

Many Kickstarter backers haven't received their games yet (such as myself), so hopefully your copy is on the way also. The company's communication has been fairly limited throughout/since the campaign.

+1

A friend of mine backed the game on kickstarter and hasn't received his copy either. (Lives in Ottawa, Canada)

It requires a lot of patience.

i was another of the contest winners and haven't heard anything aside from thay initial email. other than replying to that message i have not sent another message to them.

from time to time i look in on the kickstarter updates and it appears they are still shipping things out so i'm just being patient. the KS backers certainly deserve their games before i do.

Thank you for the replies guys, it is nice to have some context for all of this and I don't mind waiting(or not getting it, since free) I was just looking to fill the info void.

That's awesome that you've both won copies of the game. Maybe one of you will let me play it too?

I find it very interesting that I was able to buy a copy from their website after the kickstarter (missed it) and now hear that still many folks wait for their pledged games. For me this means I will not ever enter any kickstarter of that company.. Good luck to everyone who is still waiting for the game.

I received my copy months ago, but I'm from Belgium and I remember having read that production happened in Germany.

Golden Egg seems to have a lot of troubles delivering on their promises. I was a backer of one of their original games (Fallen City of Karez). He's now over a year late in delivering our stretch goals. Enough people have complained about him Kickstarter has said he will no longer be allowed to run KS campaigns.

His latest update on Karez was to slander a subcontractor (he was 100% proven a liar within four days), blame them for all the delays, and then run away after being proven wrong. He allowed an optional 'miniatures' purchase with the first game though they weren't used and he blamed the mini's guy for the other stretch goal not being delivered - and then the minis were in people's hands in four days, as soon as the mini's guy started working around Elad.

Elad has since vanished.

As mentioned by other KS backers, we just finished to ship all KS and pre-orders copies first.
We will start shipping out all contest winner's copies by next week.
