Just wondering if this kicked off and if I should be expecting a tracking number. The last update on the 16th indicated shipping would start around the 19th.

To clarify, I mean the promos Kickstarter, not the one for the reprint.

Re: Has Shipping Started?
Are you sure? the kickstarter page says that it is shipping in October.

If they ship like they normally do for direct orders, you won't get tracking. Not sure what our "upgraded shipping" stretch goal gets us (one could hope for tracking)...

But no, I don't know if they've shipped, and it's disappointing that they said they'd start shipping "next week" and then failed to update at all during that next week.

Geez. It's like you let your employees eat, sleep, and go to the bathroom.

Of course they are allowed to sleep. Every 72 hours of continuous work they get to sleep for 2 whole hours. Isn't that enough?

Bathroom is allowed once every day but for no longer than 10 minutes - don't want anyone to take advantage of our generous conditions.

As for eating, there is no need to. Every employee takes part in the new "eat-nothing" diet program that is currently undergoing. With tremendous success I may add!!!

Wow, I heard the labor laws in Europe were lenient towards the workers, but that's ridiculous!

I got my copy of the game today! ...But not either of the expansions yet, Ambassadors or Promos. That's OK, the base game is the important bit right now, so I can finally sit down to play.

Kudos to Artipia for not only fulfilling their Kickstarter on time, but actually ahead of schedule! It's still May, after all, and the promise was for June. (I know, the base game came from stock, but I'm still pleased.) If the rest of the rewards arrive in the next couple weeks-- which they should, since we were told everything is in the mail-- that's still an impressive achievement, since I can't think of a single other Kickstarter I've backed that shipped by the proposed date.

I have gotten the extra score board. But not the game yet. Weird that they shipped them separately.

Got the board and sleeves like a month ago. Today I received the Base game and both expansions (2 Boxes, 1 for base and 1 for expansions). No transport damage . From what I have seen the games should be complete, however had no time to play and verify yet !

Sounds like the conditions at both the jobs I work here in the States(well...all except the bathroom break...

My scoreboard (the only non-card promo I ordered) arrived Saturday. Hopefully there's a big package coming soon behind it.

Mine is the opposite. I already have the base game, but I got Ambassadors and the Promos today but no score board. Hope it arrives soon.

I received the score board on Saturday; and just got The Ambassadors and The Promos today. Still waiting on the base game.

I'm happy to see things arriving, but it's so weird that everything is shipping separately. Really hoping for the base game tomorrow so it can finally hit the table!

It's an add on item for backers of either recent kickstarter campaign. If you didn't back either campaign, I'm not sure if you could get it. There's been a request to make the 2nd edition scoreboard (not the one we're talking about here) available later, but no official word on when or how.

As a supporter of both campaigns, I emailed Artipia and they replied quickly so I can get the double sided scoreboard! Yay!

My package came yesterday (my wife fails to mention this to me until 11 pm ). Outer package still in good condition, two expansion boxes inside and also looking good... sadly no time to actually crack the shrink.

For those getting Promos and Ambassadors, the Ambassador items are just inside the "Promos" box correct?

I got one big cardboard package. Inside this was packing peanuts (note to self: despite name, not tasty), bubble wrap, and two separately shrink-wrapped boxes with nice ATS artwork. These boxes are the same (small) size. One says Among the Stars: The Promos and one says Among the Stars: The Ambassadors.

Well, that's odd then. I pledged at $100 and just received a box with only the Promos Expansion in it. That doesn't seem to be what most people are getting initially.

Got everything yesterday. The envelope with addons was damaged on one corner so the scoreboard is a little jacked but is minor. Large box had the base game and the smaller box had both the promos and ambassadors.
