I know there's been some talk about the waiting time for shipments of Leaving Earth. I ordered mine some time around September 20, and got mine yesterday. Joe's been great with keeping me up to date on the status of my copy when I've sent him questions. The game looks fantastic, and I'm not done reading it all yet, but I'm pretty impressed with the quality of the rulebook. I have no idea if I'll be able to learn the game from it (I'm notoriously bad at learning games), but I'm actually enjoying the reading.

I suspect it will all have been well worth the wait.

I received mine as well and received no shipping notice. The game does look cool. Looking forward to getting it to the table.

Perhaps my recent order squeaked in. Or it'll be another 3 weeks. I'll know more this afternoon.

I'm still replying to all the emails asking for status today, but in the meantime, here's an important thing to know: we're making and shipping games continuously at the moment.

The first printing was for a few hundred games -- we made them, packed them, and shipped them. The second printing is ongoing -- we're continuously making them, packing them, and shipping them.

So the delay right now is just due to how long it takes to make products and fill orders already in the queue. Since we make everything ourselves at our shop in California, we're never waiting for a shipment from China or anything like that.

No shipping notice.

I was very excited to get the game. I have to say, I love the rulebook. It's a beautiful game. I can't wait to give it a try!

I'm disappointed, this game is not send in france. We must buy it on Lumenaris site for 34,95 $ + 59,28 $ for shipping !!!

94,23 $ for this game without the expansion is too expensive
I'm waiting for a correct price...

Why this shipping cost ? I bought another game in US shop for a shipping cost of only 15 $ (in a bigger box). I don't understand.

Rackar, a lot of US companies only use tracked shipping now, I believe after a lot of shipments went missing. Which means USPS, and very high prices for small shipments.

Please see the various threads about EU bulk orders.

Ordered mine on September 30th and just got my copy today on the 29th. I haven't played it yet but the cards and wooden components look great!

This post is just for info and means nothing more. It's currently a 4 week turnaround between order received and order delivered. If you have a my.usps.com account it'll populate with the tracking info out of Morgan Hill, which is where Lumenaris is. If you want any sort of notice, make a usps account.

Order processed and billed: 10/20
Leaving Morgan Hill: 11/10
Estimated arrival: 11/16

So a month is normal? Good. I ordered a copy exactly one month ago, October 12 (earlier actually, that was the day I got my invoice) and I haven't seen it yet. Getting anxious.

At that time, it was 4-6 weeks if I recall.

Joe said they were catching up on orders to reduce the delay, but I'm guessing that the surging popularity of the game (and the publisher's production limits) will continue to necessitate patience.

It will be worth the wait.

Agreed. Expect it to arrive within 8 weeks just to be safe and avoid frustration. But it will come. And it is a very nice little package, well worth the price and the wait!

Yeah, we're still printing and shipping as fast as we can, so the "second printing" has grown into just one long continuous effort. Copies are going out the door as soon as they're ready, and it's first-in-first-out to be as fair as we can to everyone.

(And if you're one of the great many people who's emailed/messaged me in the past few days, I'm still working through all the messages, but I will respond to you.)

The downside of seeing your package roam around is it does dumb things, like sit in Southern California for 5 days when it should have traveled north. San Jose and Oakland are a lot closer to the Gilroy area than Los Angeles county is. I've driven both. I don't think the Monday estimate is going to be accurate given I'm in northern Washington state.

Yeah, we had one shipment that USPS sent all the way from California to Virginia, then brought it back to Ohio, then eventually delivered it to the customer in (I think) North Carolina. I assume hope they have a good plausible reason for doing such things.

I've had UPS ship to Montana from SoCal, from a location 4 hours away from my home. It sat in Montana for a week.

It turns out USPS hadn't posted the out from LA but did post from Federal Way, WA. So I got it today. Yay. I'm very glad you have almost an inch of padding because such a small box at the weight it is means the edges get dinged but the game does not. One corner of the package was smashed in, which had me worried and I took a photo, but the game was okay inside.

Mine arrived yesterday and I was blown away by the quality of the components and the care taken to get them all into that little box. Rules halfway done ... I had my weekly game of Combat Commander last night but now it's set up on the table and my math-genius son and I should have a go in the next day or two. Excellent product, Joe, I'm really pleased. Mercury mini expansion order in a day or two.
