I ordered a few in-stock games from GMT during their sale last week. I placed my order on May 9th and received email confirmation. They also charged my credit card.

However, as of today (1 week later) the order still shows as "Not Yet Shipped" on their website.

I emailed them, but have not received a reply in 2 days. I have not yet tried calling them.

Since this is my first order from GMT games directly, I don't know what is "standard" handling time. Based on other online sources I use, I would have expected the games by now.

Can anyone else advise me if this is standard for them, and/or how long it typically takes?

Since their recent sale isn't normal volume, it is hard for me to evaluate, but I would guess they are swamped, are just a few employees, and that your order will take time to get to you.

You may have to wait another week or ten days, depending on where you live.

For some reference, I ordered a game on may 6th and received the shipping notice today. It was a huge sale.

Heh, I decided to forgo the sale and just buy all the GMT stuff I wanted from CS. Cost me a little less than the sale and I get all of it w/in 5 days, lol. I'm thinking it was a good choice now.

Unfortunately, this is normal for them. I always get my stuff, but it could be before I even receive the shipping notification. Tracking number? fuhgettaboutit.

Nothing gained, nothing lost, just a bunch of nothing.

Thanks all, I figured as much. I'll give them some more time.

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

I think you got this all sorted out but I'll chime in too - they had a big sale and got backlogged. I contacted them about my order and they were very helpful about giving me a general time frame for it being sent.

I like ordering from Cool Stuff but they are always out of at least 50% of their wargames.
