I've had prime since it debuted and I've neither ever had an order cancelled nor heard of anyone else's order cancelled.

I order from Amazon Prime literally a few dozen times a year (games, books, cases of beverages, video games, etc.) and I don't think that's ever happened to me before, not even once.

I've been using AP for over a year now and deliveries have all been quick and seamless with no cancellations. Rest easy, your treasure is in good hands by my experiences.

I've never had an Amazon prime order cancelled, and we order a lot from them.

However, there was a post from Isaac that Amazon should not have listed the game as a pre-order because they weren't getting the game. Unless that has changed, I don't think you can get the game from Amazon. You can pre-order it but it will never ship (and you won't be charged).

Edit: Never mind. I just checked that thread and it does look like amazon pre-orders are valid after all. Sorry for the confusion

I've ordered from Amazon since 1999 and have never had them cancel an order on me.

Same here. I've never had an issue but I've never pre-ordered a game through Amazon.

I use Amazon Prime a lot and have never had an order cancelled. If the game comes out on schedule, I would expect Amazon to honor your order. And, btw, there have been times when the price has gone down before the item came out, and Amazon has always charged the lower price.

I preordered Arkham Horror the card game from Amazon and received it over a month after the initial estimate. I did receive it eventually, though.

I order dozens of times a year via prime, and the worst I have ever had is a shipment delayed a day or two. I highly recommend it.

AP is great. However the designer of Gloomhaven has commented on an earlier thread that the game is not available from Amazon...

Again, he just said he is not selling it himself directly through Amazon. He only manages the distributor. He will give 2250 games to all distributors worldwide. After that, each retailers buy the game to the distributor to sell it to their customers. So amazon can and will buy some from the distributor, and it will be available through Amazon (depending on the quantities of course).
