From the latest KS update...

It's trackable here

The latest update on that page is:

Loaded full on vessel ATLANTIC CONVEYOR/5227 for Baltimore-Seagirt,Maryland,U.S.A. 21222 On 11/26/15 12:22 which sailed on 11/26/15 21:00. The ETA at the port of Discharge will be 12/14/15 00:00

So it's a long ocean journey away still.

Does anyone know how long it takes for the games to arrive on our doorsteps after they reach the location of discharge (currently projected for the 16th)?

I'm assuming it still needs to go through customs, then gets shipped to a distribution center or warehouse where it will then be shipped to us (Just guessing here, I don't really know whats involved).

Is a pre-Christmas delivery possible? I'm guessing it's not. Thoughts?

Either way, I'm looking forward to getting this. I have the game already, but it got damaged by a spilled drink incident, so i was excited to get in on this kickstarter. Its is good game!

Unfortunately my guess is not. from prior KS experiences it usually takes a couple weeks to clear customs. shouldn't be too long after though.

Last update we had said the ship is expected to dock this evening (Friday), then gets turned over to customs. (do they work on Saturday & Sunday?) Customs clearance usually takes several days, but not sure what the holiday schedule will do to that time frame - after which, scheduling with the trucking company begins.

All I know is it seems like it's taken a gosh damn eternity for this friggin game to get here.

I presume at this rate I'll have it mere weeks when they announce that a Carson City Even Bigger Box is going to hit kickstarter.

Thanks for the update Velma.

Is Game Surplus going to receive and distribute these orders over the holidays? According to its website, Game Surplus' retail section is closed from December 23 to January 3rd. Does that mean shipping of Carson city will have to be after January 4th?

This info, though disappointing, would be useful to know. I can leave for vacation without worrying about a shipment arriving while
I am gone.

We are ready to start shipping these as soon as they arrive - we will not wait until after the 4th. . . At this point (Thurs noon) the games have cleared customs and we are waiting to hear from the trucking company to set up a delivery date. Fingers crossed in hopes they won't wait until after New Years. We are excited to get packing =)

Why was yours (to Michigan, right?) direct from Quined rather than by way of Game Surplus?

Was there some alternative shipping option?

This coupled with the continuous delays....

I'm starting to get nervous that the copy of Haspelnecht(sp) I added on is going to be MIA....

Compliments to Game Surplus and Velma who sent me a PM to assuage my fears that my add on would be missing. Thank you Velma.

For anyone who doesn't already know Game Surplus is a great online source for some hard to find titles. I check diligently every Friday around noon (PST when the seem to update the site) to see what great new imports they've added. Check them out for yourself.

Hi Velma,

Any updates on when you expect to begin the shipping process to all the US backers? I assume the delivery truck has been scheduled to bring the boxes from customs to your warehouse location by now (Dec 30).

News updates here on this forum thread would be awesome! There is not much info to be found about this on the Kickstarter campaign page.

Thanks for all you do at GameSurplus!

Good Evening,

Great News! The Truck arrived this afternoon. UPS does not pickup New Years Eve, so unfortunately, because of the holiday, nothing will begin shipping until Monday the 4th. We have already started the packing process though, so we're working ahead.

The publisher's goal is to have the USA shipping completed in a three week period. Our own personal goal is to try to get it done in less time if we can. . . It's a huge amount of games! =)

We'll work hard to get these in your hands as quickly as possible, I know it's been a long wait.

Happy New Year and Happy Gaming!
Velma
