I saw where World Monuments is already available on Amazon for ordering but there has been no update on when the Kickstarter backers will be receiving their copies. There hasn't been an update on the project page related to the game in two months. Does anyone know what is the best way to get in touch with Queen Games? I sent an email using the website but haven't gotten a response. Neither have others (based on comments on the Kickstarter page).

Just got my copy via DHL today. There was a cover letter apologizing for the uncoordinated shipping resulting in Amazon offering the game before backers got their copies. It also said Queen Games would like to compensate me with a copy of Roma.

The shipping box included Fresco instead.

I certainly don't have a problem with getting a free copy of Fresco. I'm curious if other backers got Fresco, Roma, or another Queen Games game.

My daughter just called to say mine had been delivered.
Not sure what, if anything I received extra...

Mine included Fresco as well, even though the cover letter said it would include Roma.

Extra Fresco here, as well. I suppose they are sending out whatever overstock games they had and ran out of Roma?

Fresco here too.

So far, nobody in the KS comments has received Roma.

Well, Roma would be a better option for me only in that we have Fresco already. What a massive cockup this has been.shake

Got mine yesterday. Fresco here too. Be warned that DHL required signature for delivery, so I got lucky that I went home for lunch.

Yes, I got an email from Inga Keutmann on the Queen Games Team on 9/22. It had 2 DHL tracking numbers: one for the bulk shipping from Germany, and one for my individual shipping.

Hopefully you'll get your copy soon.

ditto here--just got an email yesterday with same info

Mine arrived Friday. Fresco was the "Bonus" game so now I have to decide who to give that to since we have a copy.

You all realize that by signing for the package it essentially means you "accept" the contents of what was shipped so even though Queen stated we would get "Roma" and the letter in the box says that it is in the box, they are basically off the hook.

How odd.

It's a free game lottery!

Just bought it for $11.73 with no rush delivery, I hope its good, but at that price, it really doesn't matter in the end. Really sucks that people are still waiting. I cannot fathom why this game is so cheap now, games ranked far worse are selling for more.

I saw that as well this weekend.

I actually like the game myself. We've played a few of the boards and even with two there is enough challenge for a low-key game. The frustration related to this Queen KS is probably the highest I've seen. I've done a couple of their KS campaigns, but no more. Sadly, I fear anger at the campaign could impact the rating of the game itself which is unfair.
