Is anyone else waiting on a delivery of this Kickstarter from the French company Philibert?

I got a shipping confirmation from them on the 14th of October, but there have been no updates on the tracking information since the 15th.

Just wondering if anyone has either received theirs or has experienced a similar stall in shipping updates?

As I understand things, they get their at the beginning of this week.
The copy I have to recover at their store is only available since this morning so I think it will take few more days for the UK.

Yes, I'm in the same position as you. I'm sure there's nothing to be concerned about.

I got shipping notification on the 17th. It's currently in transit at the "North platform" which i presume is some kind of catapult launching device to get it over the channel!

Don't forget that during the last weeks, they had to ship some of the Conan boxes, to get ready for Essen, to bring back dozens of pallets full of games from Essen, to ship all the Essen pre-orders and to ship the Vinhos boxes.

OK, I feel much better now. I can cancel that rosetta stone I ordered in order to draft my query to philibert.

Thanks for the responses.

Update: Just got home from work and it's been delivered. Had a mild panic when I saw a bag of French Instructions atop the box. Rest assured the English rules are inside.

Now to figure out where to house everything in this insert...

Is the game going to be released in the UK or is it only available by ordering from France?

I assume so - just as the Gallerist is.

People in this thread are talking about the kickstarter version which could be kickstarted/pre-ordered via Philibert for cheaper than through the actual kickstarter (due to shipping costs).

Indeed: during the campaign, there were several retailers offering pre-orders for the KS version (see below).

I backed this on Kickstarter, but have had no shipping pre-alert email and have no idea when to expect the game. Anyone in the UK know the timetable?

I got mine from Philibert last thursday (I'm in Denmark).

Can I just take a moment to appreciate the packaging that Philibert does. I have ordered from them a number of times now and their packaging is second to none. They package our games as if they were transporting eggs. If the postal van crashes on the highway your game is probably gonna be OK.

My copy arrived yesterday. Try logging into your Philibert account and see the status of the order... You might have missed the email. (for reference it took 7 days from getting the shipping email to arriving at my door)

Oh, my mistake - I didn't order from Philibert, but via the main Kickstarter campaign. Wrong thread!
