A few people in the comments have reported shipping notifications as well as a few receiving their promo packs. No official word from GS but I guess yay?

This has been a very long drawn out project for sure, funded in May of 2013 and here we are on the cusp of 2015!

I will be glad to finally close the chapter on game salute. I'm also happy to get the expansions however my game isn't getting to the table as much. Hopefully the expansions garner some new interest although I can't say I'm excited about outer belt when the designer even isn't interested in Playing nor knows the rules to his own game.

Actually I am eagerly anticipating the chance to play it, but it hasn't arrived yet.

I've been hearing about the Outer Belt for years, and I can't wait to play it. Just because the designer is no longer enamored with the base game doesn't mean he made a bad design. Either way I will find out soon enough and at the very least I'll have more cards to add to the Alien Tech deck for my base games.

I don't even remember what I ordered anymore, but today I received the base game, factions, faction packs #1, #2, #3 & #4, and expansion packs #1, #2, #3, #4, #5 & #6. A relic die and rocket die was thrown in. Ok I just checked the kickstarter and this is what I ordered. I am assuming that the expansion packs are what they referred to as the promo pack.

Mine should arrive today. I saw at least one pic w/ everything in the main box so will probably shoot for that if possible once I get everything. At least one Outer Belt review indicated that it felt like a natural addition to the base game so that's a plus. Also tentatively excited for new Factions.

Edit: Received Friday, January 16 in TX. Only a little over a year past the expected date from the KS campaign and a month or so past the expected date for Outer Belt.

I got my stuff from GS yesterday but there is nothing in the box that looks like a promo pack. What does it look like?

Thanks,
Ken

I got:
Outer Belt (preordered - not from Kickstarter) a small box maybe 7-8" square
Faction Packs 2, 3, and 4 - these are in small boxes similar to Faction Pack #1
The "promo packs" - each in a little sealed envelope similar to a booster pack for many CCGs.

Looks like I can easily put the Outer Belt components and everything else into the main Alien Frontiers box if I get rid of their respective packaging. Just wish I had an option for the old-style colony markers with the Orange player bits for Outer Belt.

You could buy the gray or pink bits and paint them orange.

I backed the Rocket Dice campaign so that I could get my hands on Alien Frontiers 4th edition. So far I've gotten the base game, all the boxed expansions, the outer belt, and one unmarked promo pack, wrapped separately from everything else. No promo packs 1-6, and of course no rocket dice yet. I know Rocket Dice are still on the boat, but I'm not sure if the little promo packs are coming separately or if something has gone wrong.

I'm in Canada and received a shipping notice on Jan. 5. I went to check tracking today and realized that this is the link they gave me:
http://www.google.com/search?q=FIMS

...A lot of help there. So who knows where it is or when I'll get it (or whether or not I'll have some obscene brokerage fee to pay when it gets here).

The unmarked one is expansion pack #7 which was given to people who preordered the Outer Belt.

I've seen reports of people in the UK who have received the Promo and Faction Packs, but what about continental Europe? Has anybody received their package yet?
