Mine arrived today too (MD). I brought it in off the front porch and set it aside and got some dinner. I didn't even look at the box for several hours; I shop online a lot and I didn't really know what it was until I actually looked at the box..., and noticed there was no shipping label. Josh had dropped it off in person. surprise sorry I missed him.

It is a beau-ti-ful game and I'm looking forward to playing it.

Spheres of Influence has been one of the best run KS projects I've ever backed.

I was a bit confused by there being no cubes for the deluxe pink and teal factions until I read through the KS updates. My solution was to head over to the BGG Store and order two packs each of pink and cyan cubes. Never can tell when you need 10 factions on the table at once!

Got my copy today here in beautiful Unspecified, Michigan.

Are the cubes in the BGG store the same size?

Got mine in Mississippi Saturday! Then was promptly pulled out of town for a family emergency. Things are looking up there to the point where not being able to play Spheres can be an annoyance instead of not even registering on the priority scale.

Are the cyan cubes too close to any of the existing faction cubes? I already got the pink ones from the BGG store in anticipation of Spheres but thought cyan would be too close in color even with being translucent.

Don't forget MeepleSource:

http://www.meeplesource.com/index.php

Their blocks are the right size and there's a considerable choice of colors. They are wood though (if that matters to you).

Here's a comparison of Meeple Source's Turquoise cubes with the blue and green cubes that come with Spheres. Its a little hard to tell from these pictures because my camera phone isn't that great (so I did it in 2 different lightings) but I feel they show up fairly distantly from each other. That said, if you were remotely color blind, it probably wouldn't be that good of a buy.

Leap day arrival in Oakland, CA. But I bought it for a friend's birthday present and not breaking the shrink wrap is agonizing. Won't see him for a few days yet.

Edit: First world problems.

For the past several years, our (Kankakee) mail arrives and departs by being routed through Normal. So, maybe tomorrow. It's weird, but if I send mail to the next town just blocks away, it goes all the way to Normal and then back again.

Our mail now goes through Champaign, even if it comes from Bloomington, our "twin city". I'm amazed how inefficient efficiency can seem.

Hope you get yours today. It looks pretty good!

Are the stretch goals being shipped separately? Got the game yesterday but no extra special cards, only 3 of the custom dice, etc.

Stretch goals or Deluxe additional stuff? If the former they should be in the box. If the latter you should have a pack of extra cards taped to the outside of the shrink wrap.

I got mine Saturday morning, played a test solo 2-player/6-faction game over the weekend and had a ton of fun. Very excited to get a real game going, the design seems very solid. I did have some issues with the special card interpretations but I need a bit more experience before I start digging into those issues too much. The components are amazing.

Never mind, I just realized that none of the stretch goals actually got met, which would certainly explain why I don't have them!

Yup, same size.

I really like the transparent red and green I got to expand to 10 players.

And don't forget the Rattlebones prototyping dice. Great proxies for the special dice.
