I have been waiting for a game like orcs must die (both versions) without even knowing what a game like this could be. I want the games very much, but I am afraid of more Peterson games while my Cthulhu wars is in limbo

I received my copy with a ripped box, broken insert and broken pieces. I emailed Jan 23 with the list of broken stuff and I still haven't received my replacements. So I have an un playable "special edition" copy that looks like it it was found under a table at a garage sale.


I just sent a letter saying this to Sandy in kickstarter.

sorry to hear about your trouble! Curious, was this all the result of shipping damage? I would love to see pictures if only out of morbid curiosity.

I'm in the same place with replacements. Emailed Jan 20th but haven't gotten anything. They did confirm my email tho and they DID say that new boxes wouldn't be available till summer so I'm assuming that's what we're waiting on.

I didn't get any response on boxes...I spoke up in a different post and Arthur said I should have my stuff soon there...about a month ago.

No official word from PG though.

I will have to find pictures again in the email as I deleted them from my phone.

Or I guess I can retake them

We are waiting for 100 boxes to be freighted from CA, which is due to arrive this week. So far as I am aware, every replacement has been at least sent out, except for those needing boxes. Yours will be sent as soon as these new boxes arrive.

I'm very sorry about this, and the delay. Boxes were one of the most requested items, and we did not have enough. We are now cannibalizing our retail stock to send replacements. Panda, contrary to explicit instructions, packed the core games without padding. That's actually one of the (many) reasons we aren't using them anymore. The 2nd wave and all future games will be shipped with much greater care.

Uh oh. That makes me fear that there's a lost mi-go head floating around somewhere in the US postal system that has never made it to its destination.

Sorry to hear that...though it would certainly be poetic justice for the mi-go if you think about it.

I think I remarked on that in the email requesting a replacement head.

My Reaper Bones Cthulhu showed up missing his head.
My Cthulhu Wars had a Mi-Go missing a head.
Strange.
And I'm willing to bet that if things go as announced for a second Cthulhu Wars KS, if I get in on that I'll get a mini missing a head.

The obvious solution is to ONLY order minis that don't have heads. Like dholes, azathoth, etc.

UPDATE:

These have arrived. A little later than expected, but there are several pallets of games just sitting in Sandy's garage goo

That's weird. My minis showed up last week but with no box replacement. I guess that means one isn't coming?

I'd hate to have it shipped separate now, that's going to cost a mint and the three minis I got replaced were already packed in a box that easily could have fit a copy of Arkham Horror.

I pledged only $1 at the orcs campaign for fear of a Queen Games-like problem with getting the replacement pieces.

Sad, as it looked like a good game (or set of games)

There actually is no real problem getting the replacements, Petersen Games has been VERY good about doing it especially considering how much they had to replace thanks to faulty shipping.

Any word on this? I sent an email as well but got no reply.

I know that Link sent a stack of CW boxes out to the PO yesterday. He's been churning through those.

So the boxes ARE going out separate from any other replacements?

It is possible they are in some cases - such as yours, since you said that figures have been sent to you.
