I'm very happy to say I've just received my Kickstarter Special Edition!

I've just unboxed it partially and the quality of the game is extremely high. The pieces are well made and beautifully painted and the box art looks really special.

Thankyou for the attention to detail, and I am really looking forward to playing this tonight. (though it will be a 2 player session)

Also received in Aus. Just played 2 x 2 player games & really enjoyed it! Will play more games of it tonight. Agree with Gomisan, quality of game is great, but is no surprise when it comes from Stonemaier Games.

Easy clear rules, quick setup, interesting play. I think this will be hitting the table a lot!

My fiancé and I played a few games last night. It was nice to have something that could be played pretty quickly (about 20 mins a game) and yet was still challenging strategically.

The balance seems pretty good. Our scores were close, and yet our cities were quite different each time. It's going to be interesting exploring strategies, and I'm sure all that will go out the window when we get a chance to play with more people!

Got my shipping notice today and tracking indicates I'll get the game tomorrow. Wow!

Update: Special Edition 3152/5100 looks great!

Mine is due to arrive tomorrow and I'm looking forward to breaking it out on Sunday. I love the quality of Stonemaier Games' products and can't wait to get my hands on this one.

Received in Seattle yesterday (well, it went to my office yesterday, but it was my day off, so I have it in hand today). So far I am heroically not opening the shrink during work, but have opened the shipping box to confirm its contents.

"Heroically" is an excellent word to use here.

I think I'm going to call this game Between 10 to 12 Cities by the time it arrives.

Here's the epic journey it's taken so far Journey of Between Two Cities

I have not seen any shipping info for my copy and I'm in Atlanta, GA.......something seems fishy....
EDIT: After reading next post (someone in Seattle without shipping info), I decided to retract my fishy statement.
EDIT: patience young Padawan....shipping info received less than 10m ago!

I'm so jealous! gulp
I live in Seattle, but haven't gotten my shipping notice. I'm hoping they just forgot to send the email and it'll arrive in time to be played tonight. There is another chance tomorrow, but who wants to wait that long?!

Same deal but about an hour south of you in Visalia. It looks like it's through UPS Surepost so there's also the hand off to USPS at some point before it gets dropped off. soblue

Just got it here in Ottawa. Game looks gorgeous, and I'm looking forward to trying it out. I'm hoping my family enjoys it (my mom's favourite games include Castle Panic, Catan, and ... Pandemic. My dad and my brother's favourite games include the 18xx series, AH's Civilization, and ... Castle Panic. We've got fairly eclectic tastes, and I hope this one fits!)

My shipping order was placed on Wednesday, but the estimated delivery date is next Saturday. That's longer than I had hoped it would take to get to PA, but it's all good. Maybe it will arrive early!

Received and played mine yesterday! I love it already, and I think the "expansion" I playtested at Gen Con is even better, so that'll be a treat when it gets to funding My box had #32, #37 and #40 in it - I kept #37 for myself.

I finally got mine today. While I'm sure it isn't so, I feel like I'm the last Seattlite to get my copy; Portland's so close - what took so long!?
Needles to say, we had a dry run tonight with the family; looking forward to playing it again.

Eh, someone's had to be last. Might as well be mine. We might've missed a few plays this weekend, but we'll make up for it.
I'll be a little more put out if the same thing happens next August.

I was the first backer of the game. I think I'm close to being the last to receive the game. Just a little bit of "karma".
