All,

I read on their webpage that they expected to get the game on Oct 4th.

Does anyone know if that happened? And if so, when are they shipping? How long does it take to clear customs from Canada to the US?

Thx

As far as I know, it hasn't shipped yet. Rik has been posting periodic updates in the forums on this topic, and I believe the official word was that they expected to get it this week since it cleared customs, and they were going to start boxing them up and shipping out, with a mid-October delivery date expected.

One can hope they will grace us with a "It's Here!" message, followed shortly by "We have serious paper cuts from shipping to you!" messages.

According to a mail that I got from Rik today, they are unpacking everything in the warehouse right now. It sounds like good news

All I can hope is that it arrives before our next gaming session in November. And mental note for next time...just wait until the "next big thing" arrives in the stores.

You mean you already know the game to be released after Big City?

I believe that the preorder shipping period has started. This is not an official announcement just yet, as I have not had this information confirmed. I do not know how long it will take to ship all the preorders, but as you know, preorder customers are first in line to have their shipments sent out.

I will try to confirm this as soon as possible.

Has anyone received their copy yet? I'm starting to get a little antsy as their website hasn't been updated since October 8th. I know I've read somewhere on the Boardgamegeek site that the games are in their warehouse, but nothing official.

If anyone could give an update I would appricate it.

Thx

It's kind of unfortunate that they have to have an "unofficial" spokesperson to keep us in the loop. I mean, we who pre-ordered only helped fund the printing of the games...who are we to ask if we're going to get our copy or not?

An UPDATE:

US Customers should expect the game in/on their mailbox/front porch by approximately Thursday of this week (the 26th).

Valley Games has utilized a third-party distributor for US customers. This distributor reports that as of today, all US preorder customers have had their orders shipped. Since the shipment will originate from within the U.S., this will minimize shipping times.

For Canadian customers, not to worry: Canadian preorder customers have had their games shipped in a batch quantity to the Valley Games office in Alberta. From here, these games will be sent to their appropriate destinations. This shipping method was used in order to avoid customers needing to deal with hassles of customs/duties/delays etc. An exact delivery date is unknown at this time, but will be updated as soon as possible.

International Customers will be sent out promptly. I believe these will be sent out directly from the Valley Games office in Canada, but I will be double-checking this information shortly. Your copies will be sent out at the same time as Canadian orders, and shipping time will vary by location.

Any questions? Anything I missed mentioning? Please post your comments/questions here.

In short, if you ever need help with a question or concern, I'm just as suitable as emailing Rik or Torben directly.

And yes, all preorder customers will receive their copy (Please cut and paste this last bit as much as necessary).

Kevin, I just wanted to thank you for doing an exemplary job of keeping us in the loop with what little information could be had. I can only hope that Valley Games will thank you in some meaningful way.

You're welcome. I hope the information is useful to a few people, at least.

As far as direct communication via the Valley Games website, the primary reason for the slowdown in info has been the updating of the website. I know it is being overhauled in the midst of all the other projects they are working on. Communication will get better once the website is complete (as well as a streamlined preorder process!).

My distributor announced today I'll have it in my store on 10/30, which means it should be available in stores everywhere on that date. You'll want to pre-order it, if you buy it brick-and-mortar. My guess is most store managers won't order it if they haven't done the research.

Valley Games ***10/30 STREET DATE***
VLY001 Die Macher $49.95 SRP ____
Lead your party to election victory in this new international edition of the political party game Die Macher! Die Macher is about 7 sequential regional elections which set the parties up for the final National election to decide who will rule in Bonn. As a player, you are the leader of a major political party with certain policies that make up your political platform. Party meetings just be organized, a shadow cabinet put together, media control must be bought, coalitions formed, compromises negotiated and other campaigns sabotaged. The most important tool for all this is money, but cash is very limited and an election campaign is very expensive. The player with the most victory points wins!

Gary,

Excellent, it looks like everything is going to plan then. We were expecting a U.S. store shelf date of the 30th, and it looks like that will, in fact, be the case.

My wife just informed me that my copy has arrived. I cannot wait to get home! So, as one data point, a copy has made it to Atlanta, GA.

Just got mine in Holland, Michigan.

I haven't had time to do anything other than pull off the shrink wrap. First impression: this is a really nice box.
