If you follow the comments on the kickstarter several folks still have not received theirs. Plus folks are having trouble getting responses about missing pieces. They have promises for weeks that they would issue Update 47 explaining what is going on but nothing has been posted for a month and a half. A month and a half ago a few folks received their copy then deliveries stopped. It appears the same is happening now. Also folks in Canada are being charge $72 extra on arrival of their game. All folks really want is for them to give us Update 47 and explain what is going on. With so much silence it makes one wonder if it is not time for legal action.

I am not so sure. It may be getting close to time. It may be past time. apparently games are getting shipped, just at an unknown (but slow) rate. I seem to recall reading here on BGG that about one or two people per week are reporting arrivals. If I knew the numbers of people that backed the game and are still waiting AND how many of them are active on BGG I might have enough data for a conclusion.

According to the data that has been released, shipping in NA commenced around the 24th of October (??) but I have great doubts about the accuracy of that data. I seem to recall a comment somewhere that shipping was to commence around the 7th of November, again with little confidence.

If we take the leap of faith that the 7th date as accurate AND my recollection of only three people reporting in as receiving the game in the last ten days...

Still nothing in my state, which also happens to be a state where our attorney general sued a KS creator. that being said i'm just writting this game off now. Sucks and I will never back/buy anything with their names on it again.

Well, my patience finally paid off -- my copy showed up today (rural outskirts around Tacoma, Washington). All components accounted for; no damage to game boxes. Still not happy with the poorly handled delivery process, but at least I have the game in hand.

Haven't counted the contents, but, boy, are the components ugly!

Waiting to try out the game to see if the funz can make up for the quality of components and frustration I'll remember when I look at the box.

I'm still waiting for my Kickstarter also, in the Bay Area, California. Haven't had any update, but I'm hopeful.

Still waiting in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, but someone in Edmonton did receive their copy last week. Here's hoping soon...

It's still a no-show in Raleigh, NC. At least, at my house. I've been trying to give them the benefit of the doubt, but their complete lack of communication and refusal to respond to the comments on the Kickstarter site has finally removed all doubt. Never again, Artipia. Never.

I too have not received mine in South Dakota.

Like others, I'm not sure when to start worrying that it isn't going to come for some reason (shipping error, admin error, processing error, etc.) and contact the company?

Thanks!

Go to Drawlabs' Facebook page and send a Facebook message to them. I did that and had a response within an hour or two. My game still hasn't shipped, but they did response quickly and were honest and apologetic about my order.

I am glad they responded but I highly doubt they were honest unless they said they had no idea what they are doing and haven't a clue as to when your game will ship.

I plan on reaching out to the fulfillment company again tomorrow. So far they have ignored both their own contact form and their voicemail. Could just be the holiday???

I just posted a note on Drawlab's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DrawlabEnt

I got an almost instant response telling me to send them a direct message. I went to their site and used the Contact Us form. They claimed they will get back to me tomorrow. http://www.drawlab.com/contact-us/

Others may wish to do the same.

I emailed Drawlabs at "Please contact with Drawlab Entertainment (info@drawlab.com or support@drawlab.com) who are in direct communication with the fulfilment center." and got a response and they sent the game, via USPS, a couple days later. It arrived here in Canada two days ago. Everything intact and customs fees at a reasonable rate. I am relieved to be ending the drama of this kickstarter.

Congratulations, Albert. I emailed Drawlab and contacted the fulfillment center. No response to either query.

I have not received mine in South Dakota. What is the recommended process at this point?

I have contacted Drawlab, again, to see what they have to say. There is one fulfillment company handling the game that has no record of my order and another that has not returned my calls or emails.

Today's update is that I received the following response from Drawlab: "your package in our warehouse and awaits shipping. At the moment we are facing some technical difficulties and some of our orders were delayed.

We expect that by next week we would operate again without problems.

Thank you very much for your patience and for supporting Drawlab, have a nice day"

So, back to waiting. Patiently.

I just got this back in response to my contact with DrawLab:

Quote:

Thank you very much for your patience and for supporting Drawlab, have a nice day,


Hopefully everything will be resolved reasonably soon.

I'd argue that "reasonable" passed by the wayside at least a month ago...

You must not have been involved with many KS campaigns....
