Maybe a little less packing material than I'd like, however everything seems to be intact and undamaged. And there's a lot of stuff there. The base box, 8 expansion boxes (1-4 and 9-12), 40 miniatures, 2 bags of tokens, the footlocker and its 3 decks. Well, 2 decks and dividers.

Oh, here was the damage. The ziplock bag containing the dividers was ripped at the bottom. Oh, the horror!

And it got me wondering. I have expansions 1-4 and 9-12. I chose to pass on 6-8. Where the heck is expansion #5?

It seems like Expansion #5 would be a deck to be consistent, and maybe you're right.

The comments about the packaging concerns me; I've had a few bad experiences in the past (once with DVG) and while the distributors have always been responsive it detracts from the experience.

David's second post here gives the full breakdown of cards by expansion (#5 is the cards that come with the footlocker).

The air space inside had some paper for cushioning, and no bubble wrap or popcorn. It wold have been nice. However, I detect no dents and dings, so it seems like it was enough, at least in this case.

On the original, 4 was the dice, so no.

G'day all,

I emailed Dan at DVG about the packaging concerns.

When he responds I'll post an update.

Great to hear that the goods have arrived safely!

Any rules questions of comments - don't hesitate to post - I'll work on a FAQ and update to the card register over the next couple of weeks.

It hasn't got to me here in the wilds of Coffs Harbour down under - I don't expect it for at least 2 weeks. In the interim I have my proof reader copy and play test draft.
But I want the real deal ASAP! whistle

It could take 1-2 weeks to get to the EU distributor, then a few days(?) from them to you.

Patience is a virtue I lack... I too want it now!!!!!!


The above is based on my memory of:
------
Update #47

Nov 19 2016

US and EU Update

The games should be arriving in the EU for distribution any day now as should the minis. With luck they will be shipping to everyone in about a week or two depending on any customs delays.

The games have arrived in our US warehouse, and they will be shipping next week.

Got mine yesterday in California. Everything arrived sound and safe. I'm pretty happy with the quality of the components. The base game box looks really good and it's packed with all sorts of good stuff, like no less than four dice, 5 decks of cards if I remember right, a thick stock reference card, 4 really well done counter sheets, a real nice mounted board and a full color manual! I think though it won't be possible to fit everything in the box if you plan to put your counters in a tray.
The footlocker is a nice sturdy box neatly organized with thick dividers.
I can't wait to give it a go.

Expansion 5 mystery solved. Based on the card numbers, it is indeed the cards in the footlocker.
