I ordered several items from GOTD during the sale they had concurrent to the last Tangathon. I also ordered Arkham Horror when it was on sale last week (it's probably too soon to expect this).

Has anyone received their merchandise from around this time - or since then? Am I being slightly impatient? I don't know of a way to track that anything has happened with my orders, aside from of course having paid.

Hm. I just checked out the site, and I see that they have Ra for $19.99, and "Game of the Day" for one cent. I'm not clear on the whole one cent thing, though; is it a mystery game, or is that a placeholder for something else?

I believe "Ra" is the actual game of the day, and the 1 cent item is there as a placeholder so that the explanation of how the site works can be described on the front page.

Yes, they 'seem' to use the $0.01 as a place holder type thing.

Let us know what happens. I've been checking them out. A couple things were close to where I'd pay for them. But, I just haven't gotten a 'warm fuzzy' from them and have been meaning to post for recomendations.

I believe that the e-store template they are using requires two items on the home page. They use one for the "item of the day" and one for their logo and general info. The template requires a price for this second "item" as well (which isn't really an item), so they put $0.01.

I haven't purchased from them yet so I can't speak to the shipping issues. I do remember the owner writing in another thread that a few items were oversold, so that would cause a slight delay in shipping...

I have ordered several things from them without issue. I did order some things during the 'Game-A-Thon' and got them today. But I also got an email explaining the hold up on shipping the items and an offer for another game fairly cheap because of the delay. There was a follow up email when the items actually shipped as well.

Also, if you requested for them to combine shipping to get an additional $3 off, that will delay your shipping as well. I don't think that was a major issue during the Game-A-Thon, but it is something to keep in mind as well.

Thanks.

I got notification that the four games I bought in their gameathon shipped last Thursday via FedEx ground from Virginia.

As I'm in Oregon, that means they should be arriving tomorrow.

Hmm, I haven't received either of those e-mails. I'll see if I can contact them to find out what's up. Thanks for the info.

I purchased several games during the game-a-thon, and recieved them later in the week. I've had excellent experience in regards to contacting them and getting information.

Brad... your items from the Game-a-Thon shipped on March 16th. Your tracking number (Fedex ground) is 713447010001691.

Good news is it appears your package is in Phoenix, so should be there tomorrow I think...

FYI, it will be a little while on Arkham because that bundle also was quite popular and the guys at FFG have all been at the conference... Eric K. is supposed to be back tomorrow so hopefully he can fill my restock order in Bryan B.'s absence.

Brad is correct here. A price is required for each item, so the text describing the store itself, rather than the product, has a one-cent "price" associated with it. Two items are not required to be listed, but as new people come to the site, I wanted to let them know what the site is about.

Also, your Arkham super bundle will ship tomorrow. I'll send your tracking info on it tomorrow when it ships.

Edit - The tracking number for the Arkham bundle is 713447010001790. Enjoy!

So the answer, of course, is that I was slightly impatient. My Game-a-thon order arrived today as promised yesterday. Magic!

Still waiting for mine. I got the e-mail about the delay, and the offer of a reduced price game, but never got any shipping notification since then.

Matt, all your items were shipped. Your tracking number is 713447060001085. In addition to the 40% off and free shipping you received on your selected game, I'd like to offer you free shipping on your next game purchase. Just enter the coupon code I sent to your email at the Google site and the shipping cost will be deducted from the total.

- Eric
