Hey all,
Second printing is apparently here, or will be shortly, as it's listed as "charging" on the GMT page.

Probably would have been here months ago, except apparently the dockworkers union on the west coast has been delaying the offloading of ships. The term used was "work slowdown" not stoppage. Not sure if any of you saw that in the news...but NBC said the backlog of ships waiting to be unloaded was the highest in a decade or worse.

Anyway, should be soon.

Greg

Just a quick update that the boat has been delayed docking in Oakland and the games then need to get down to GMT warehouse after that. GMT expects they should arrive sometime next week.

Tony says the games should be arriving at GMT warehouse THIS WEEK. Fingers crossed. He's going to overnight a copy of the game to me as well as the update kit for First Printing owners so I can verify that everything checks out.

Hmm...possible false alarm. I misread the UPS shipping notification email and it's a 2-day delivery. Maybe this is something else and not HUNTERS?....

UPS is toying with me. They sent me a notice that my delivery for yesterday got pushed to today. Not sure if this is HUNTERS stuff though because Tony said he would overnight it to me....I'll ping Tony on status if it doesn't arrive today. Stay tuned....!

Received a shipment from GMT Games today. Never a bad thing. But specifically to HUNTERS, I'm afraid it was not including my advance copy. That means it's probably still due in the warehouse. I've fired off an email in the meantime to check for updated ETA since it doesn't look like it made it this week....

Heard back from Tony. He confirmed the shipment has not arrived at the warehouse yet. Any time now, though...we are just waiting for a truck to arrive....

I recieved a shipping notice from GMT on November 22 saying my order shipped via USPS. I cant figure out what I ordered. I recieved my first printing of The Hunters when it came out.

I checked my account info and thought maybe I accidentaly ordered another copy of the game. I had it on pre-order quite a while ago, canceled the order when it seemed like it would never come out, and then reordered. The account page doesn't really specify anything.

Since everything I see says the game isn't here yet it couldn't have shipped in November.

I contacted them about this from the website, but didn't get a response.

Did anyone else get shipping notices for an order that they didn't know about or recieve?

Did not get a shilping notice. I did get a notice that my credit card was no good during charging. I had ordered a copy at the beginning of the year. A year later much had happened. Lost my career, my family, my home, went into debt.

But yeah no shipping notice.

D D -- if you cancelled your preorder, I understand given your circumstances (which I'm hopeful will be temporary and change for the better very soon!)

Can you drop me a note/e-mail privately here just to let me know if you did cancel your order so I can try to help. Thanks.

Does GMT wait for you to receive a production copy and approve before shipping to customers?

Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

Yes, to avoid shipping a bunch of units with an embarrassing component list gaffe (like a component missing or finding something obviously wrong that needs a quality check in other units). That's why they send to me advance product overnight so I can review and provide feedback to them ASAP.

GMT had a shipping update yesterday. It mentioned that the reprints are in port waiting to be released. Maybe that will happen today. If so, they will get put together with the new games and shipped next week. If they are delayed again, the new games will ship and the reprints will go out after they arrive and get put together.

Which port? East coast or West coast port? This could make a difference as there are still hangups and delays at the West coast ports.
