Is it a moose that became a detective ? Or a detective who searches for moose?

All the usual online stores were sold out before release, but did they actually ship their pre-orders out? I see a lot of threads about the game, but I don't know if those were all bought at FLGS or where?

Did anyone order from Amazon and receive it? I placed a pre-order on Amazon when they had it up for $30.00 that keeps showing me I'll get it today but I just spoke to them and they don't have any.

Check this thread in "Discussing Retailers" that was originally posted here but then relocated elsewhere, because reasons.

Additional spoiler: It will be quite a long wait if you're like me and have been frothing at the mouth to play since that first box pic leaked.

Personal spoiler: Although this is my second core set. I preordered ages ago but got impatient and found 1 of the 2 copies all my flgs got and had to pay 4 bux above msrp (never going there again)

Final spoiler: That was my last spoiler.

I didn't think I was alone, but I couldn't find the other thread.

I just wasn't even sure if copies had shipped from CoolStuff and the other OLGS but they apparently have, and it looks like NOBODY got their Amazon order which is odd, but whichever. I'm pretty sure FFG is making more.

Yeah I received my copy from CSI just two days ago. My condolences to those going through the Amazon debacle. I know it was killing me just waiting for the release date and watching the delivery day shift and change. Hopefully you all get sorted soon!

Someone thought they'd get it moved to the "correct" section "Discussing retailers." The proof that my placing it here was where it really belonged was that almost immediately another Amazon thread was started in this forum. I guess he's going to have to keep getting them moved.

PS, I finally got a notice from Amazon that my order isn't shipping. No ____ Sherlock.

I beginning to wonder did anyone in the US who ordered from Amazon get their order? Could Amazon not have gotten their shipment?!

At least you received an estimated date. I pre-ordered mine on Nov 1st and I just received my amazon delay in shipping your order email. Mine reads:

New estimated delivery date:
Not yet available. We'll e-mail you as soon as we have a delivery date.

My email said that too but if you go to the product page it shows Dec 30th

I also got my Amazon notification today. Boo.

At least we have it locked in for $30. It will get to me eventually I suppose.

Be careful with that. Take a look at the seller for the Dec 30 date on Amazon. Mine doesn't show the seller as Amazon.

I decided to call Amazon and complain, just because I can...not that anything is going to happen. On the phone with them now.

I find this thread and yours HIGHLY distracting and I am unable to continue my daily activities because of it. /jk

Protip for the thread: Cancel your amazon orders and order from FFG. They shipped my copy yesterday just 3 hours after I placed the order. They still have some in stock according to their website.

I dislike preordering games from Amazon for this reason. I have had this issue in the past where they take more orders than they can cover and they will always list that items will be back in stock by the end of the year even if they don't know when they will be restocked or if the restock will take longer than till the end of the year which is unhelpful. That said their support lines are not bad compared to many companies and I've gotten refunds before relatively easy.

Bummer to see it happen but not surprised by it. This was going to be my 2nd set so not a huge loss. I'm sure I'll get it before Xmas. I guess Amazon didn't anticipate the damage till it was too late, especially at the 30 price point a couple of weeks back.

I can pay list price, but I just can't handle their, I think, excessive shipping charges. $12.93 ground to California.

Fair enough. I just wanted to make sure people knew it was available outside of Amazon's website.

I also ended up cancelling my order with Amazon and ordered from FFG. They had a UPS tracking number out to me within an hour. No idea whether it's Amazon's fault or Asmodee's, but I'll stick with Cool Stuff or Miniature Market in the future for pre-orders.

Note: Shipping for 2 core sets was ~$15 to California for me, so only twice what Miniature Market would charge.

This was easily predicted 9 months ago.

But of course someone somewhere has a great FLGS, so that makes the behavior of all of the bad FLGS ok. shake

Interesting, no email and my order remains unshipped but indicates it will arrive "Tuesday?"

Not that I actually expect it will be here any sooner than the end of the year but why was it offered in the first place? At $30 plus free Prime shipping they had to know it would sell faster than the other online retailers or even FFG.

It magically appeared at my LGS today (and it HAD to be magic, because of the way they complain about their distributors). Of course, local prices are nutso, so I only got one core.

It amazes me that Amazon couldn't count the number of pre-orders against the number of copies they themselves ordered from the distributor. I love Amazon, but I've learned my lesson too, no more game orders from them.
