I got the email from NK this morning that the games are available for order!

Quote:
The wait is finally over – your copy of Fifth Column's Codeword Cromwell has arrived, and is ready for checkout. It is priced at $129.95, about a $20 discount from the direct order price after shipping and UK exchange rates.


And you can buy additional games all for the same $9.95 shipping. Great deal.

Received the same email. Very excited.

Now the struggle is not to add TOO many impulse buys to the cart. It's already a wee bit heavy in there because I've been having them stash the occasional game into it while I waited for Cromwell to arrive.

I wonder if everyone who put in a preorder notification has in fact a copy reserved for them and that they have a time limit to place the order or lose it... Otherwise it would be first come first serve......

Hey, we're not spoiling, just helping!

Still working on collated Q and A. Put it out very shortly - be good to get some definitive answers from Dan on a few things.

That's certainly how I view it, appreciate you guys finding the errata and doing the work of putting the answers together.

Kevin,

I have this game. It is well worth $130 (not much more expensive than what I paid for it in the UK) and it will blow you away. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Regards,

If you have the funds, buy a NK one now... when the other arrives you could sell I'm sure for nearly all if not more than you paid.


Thanks for the tip and I just placed the order. The way I feel about Fifth Column Games right now, I still am not confident that I will be getting the game from them, despite the ackowledged mix up, because I never received a confirmation of shipping email even after this was suppossedly corrected. I will be requesting a refund from 5th CG if I do not receive the game in a couple more weeks...

Ditto, as another 5th Column pre-orderer. I am not sure what the mix up has been, but the attention to those who ordered directly as early adopters has been very poor.

I received my Noble Knight order today! Although it helps only being about an hour's drive from them...

And I am one of those who, also, ordered directly from Fifth Column. To date, I have received no shipping notices nor any responses to my emails I sent them asking about the status of my order.

I will be asking for a refund also should my game not arrive in the next couple of weeks.

So I finally have a copy of Codename Cromwell thanks to Noble Knight games, and no thanks to Fifth Column Games. At least I can start reading these many threads about particulars of the game now. I also will be able to request a refund from 5CG knowing that I now have the game at hand....

Although Fifth Column Games obviously arranged for the shipment to Noble Knight.

Sounds like Parcelforce are to blame for the shipment of the direct orders. Which doesn't surprise me; their reputation isn't the best, although possibly the best of a bad bunch.

As for email communication, I don't know if that's down to Parcelforce or 5CG. I certainly received no notice for my shipment within the UK. And, not excusing lack of communication, remember that 5CG is a one man band, run by someone who has a day job or two.

As someone who has played Where There Is Discord, and now three turns of Codeword: Cromwell, I can say that the common thread between them is "narrative." Playing WTiD, I felt like I was watching a gripping drama unfold every turn, and the same is happening with CC.

I received my copy from 5CG on Saturday. It is marked as dispatched on July 22, 2014. Not sure where it has been sitting all this time. I am glad that I don't have to go through the buy from NK and then get refund from 5CG. Am doubly happy to finally be able to play the game.
