I am sure it will be asked many times over in various places, but I'll add it here for what it's worth: this appears to be completely identical to the first edition of 1880 in every way as physical components and artwork goes, etc.

@Ingo: I wonder if you could have a gander in the rule book and let me know if it indicates a version change with the new printing? I haven't heard anything about any changes at all to the game and I expect there haven't been, but curious if you can confirm.

Thanks

Did any of you receive a shipping notification to track your package?

Reason I ask: Helmut messaged me on 6 Dec that he'd be shipping my gamekit 'next week,' which would have been sometime this week. I emailed him midday yesterday but haven't heard back.

I don't recall getting one but I did also have a bunch of stuff ship around the same time. It just sort of showed up a few days ago. If you haven't, sign up for My USPS and it will text you when any package is incoming to your house.

Edit: The tracking number will end in 'DE' and it will be something you'll have to sign for.

I don't think I've had tracking when I've ordered from Double-O nor other German sellers, but I've always had smooth experiences with them.

**Update - heard back from Helmut, though no definitive answer re: a shipping notification since I didn't specifically ask that of him, ha. I just made sure of where he was in the shipping process (slow, it seems, what with the orders he has to fulfill and holidays upcoming and all). 'Tis all good.

When did this overtext thing happen? Am I supposed to think of something clever to put here?

Yeowch...Sounds a bit concerning, given that it took 6 days to get to u/mthompson in Canada earlier in November. Hopefully it arrives soon!

It wouldn't be the first time at all where a large wave of shipments has landed everywhere but USA because the customs process there is so much more heavily backlogged due to the perpetual red alert security panic there. I remember when the 1860 reprint was launched there was a huge fiasco as well and I think Americans were sometimes well over a month delayed.

I'm not saying I have any more reliable information on the status than the next guy, just saying it's far too early to panic given the well documented history of tardy importation into the USA.

I'm in exactly the same situation, if the data point helps you.

i'm not really concerned about it not arriving, as i don't think i've ever had an international package disappear completely. more of a commentary on how this time of year is very bad for shipping times into the usa.

Any more updates from U.S. customers who ordered in the late November/early December timeframe? I placed my order on December 4th. Hasn't shown up quite yet in Washington, DC.

I'm sure my copy is still working its way through the crowded holiday mails this time of year.

My status hasn't changed: shipped on Nov 29, has not yet arrived. As above, the Deutschepost tracking has it handed off to the USPS on 11/30, and USPS has not updated status beyond a "notified shipment is being prepared" status.

Thank you for the update. I can just imagine some customs warehouse on the US East Coast filled to the brim with copies of 1880. . .

Still nothing?

Or did you get it and were so ecstatic (understably so!) that you forgot to post
