So I come home from the dreaded chore of grocery shopping and get excited as I see a package lying on my front porch. The excitement quickly died as I got a close look at the packaged. The package looked like it had used as a soccer ball during the world cup. soblue









Furthermore, it was labeled as being received by the postal carrier as not being sealed!



So I opened the package and behold my beautiful new game.



Sadly I opened the actual game to examine the damage. The board is bent beyond being playable. The player boards are bent. I was looking forward to playing this game.



I have contacted ShipNaked who fulfilled the Kickstarter and Magic Meeple Games. I am awaiting a reply to solve this situation.

That's ridiculous. I see the shipping of KS rewards devolving. I'm constantly getting damaged product. Part of it is packaging and part is the delivery service.

Part one, I think the creators are doing as little as possible in packaging/padding (either personally or by not contracting with the fulfillment companies to do so). I assume its all to save money. But then they get tons of replacement requests. So then it must be cheaper to replace a bunch than pay for proper packaging the first time, right?

Granted, no amount of packaging would have saved your box. Which leads to part two. UPS/USPS/DHL don't care. FedEx I've not had a problem with.

Anyway, sorry yours came that way. Hope mine doesn't.

Same here. That is terrible. How can the delivery person just leave something like that? It almost looks deliberate and I doubt any extra padding would have made a difference. I'm so sorry to see this and I hope you can get a replacement very soon.

I actually had 3 deliveries from ShipNaked in two days over various projects. They were all in great shape. One box had a hole in the outer package but the contents were fine.

I hope you can get yours resolved, as the condition of that box is beyond unacceptable. I would have been distraught if that were mine as well.

Jason,

Thank you for letting us know. It is shameful how abusive some couriers can be with our mail. I can see that it was delivered by USPS, so we'll look into it.

ShipNaked is equipped and authorized to provide replacements in events like this and I will let them know to expect your message.

I apologize for the difficulty this has caused you. We'll make it right. Expect to hear from me directly in a KS message early this week. meeple

Ian,

I pre ordered my copy via the games web site and was wondering when a shipping notification would be sent to me so I know when to expect the games arrival.

I am guessing it would be KS backers first, then pre orders?

Thank you.
