On June 4th this was the last known update:

"Games are shipping to backers in Europe and the container is in Chicago today headed toward Wisconsin. So we expect the games will be shipping to backers in the US in about one to two weeks."

Anybody know what is going on, or has anyone received theirs?

I haven't. That and their lack of communication (besides spamming me for other projects/reprints) makes it a lock I won't be supporting them in the future.

Yep I agree.

The game has such bad ratings and has been reported as being terrible as a 2 player game, I think I am just going to put mine up for sale as soon as I get it. No more Kick Starter for me.

I wouldn't blast them before I get the game, play it and form my own opinion.

As far as shipping, I'm only a little upset that it didn't get in for my Bday which was last week. However if you look at the time between Kickstarter campaign and the time Queen delivers, it's Nothing compared to how long most other companies take. I know it's mostly because by the time Queen starts the campaign, the game is usually fully developed already - but still, it's nice not to have to wait a year or more.

Got mine Saturday afternoon via UPS.
Well packaged, no damage to the game or the 2 mini-expansions.

Received in Northern Virginia today. OCD nitpick: the artwork for the two pieces of the player boards lines up on the bottom (unseen), but not the top.

I got an email stating that a package was delivered to my home, only to come home and find no package delivered. According to online tracking, after a single attempt to deliver during the daytime didn't succeed, they transferred the package to the post office where I have to go pick it up.

I have no clue if this is Tortuga or not. My only clue is that the shipper is ACD DISTRIBUTION. Can anyone confirm if that's the company being used to distribute this game?

Took some serious doing, contacting ACD, UPS, and finally the post office, but finally got mine here in Atlanta, GA.
