I know a number of you have received tracking info for partial shipments (as have I - about 1/8 of my pledge....sigh), but I was curious if anyone with this issue has received a second email yet for more shipments?

I received my first notice yesterday morning and have heard nothing yet about the other 7/8 of my pledge.

Not enough boxes, lol....next thing there will be a gas shortage or something, slowing deliveries further

I received two emails from Gamerati and then two email chains from My UPS for tracking along the way. Then I received two packages late last week.

Same. I emailed and the response from gamerati is that they are shipping some things separately. When they go to ship the rest you will receive another notification. Other people have confirmed this on a facebook group as well. Hope this helps.

It does, thanks. I emailed Gamerati and they said the same. Now I have no idea how mass shipping works, but it seems odd that the shipping notices come days apart instead of consecutively, due to the fact that they are working on my order anyway.

I may be applying logic that simply doesn't fit with the way things are shipped from a warehouse, though.

I got a partial notice the other day, but no news about the rest yet. The first notice is still sitting on "label created" so it's still possible everything will ship at the same time.

I haven't received anything at all yet, no emails nothing. My box would be very small as well.

I am in the same boat but backed for everything new in this campaign. Have we heard any expectation when shipping is supposed to be completed?

I got one notice from Gamerati and went online to UPS to delay the delivery since we're on vacation.

Arthur said in another thread that he believes June 5th to be the day Gamerati will have shipping completed.

I hope it is not going to be that the warehouse ran out of tape

Still waiting on second notification after my initial.

This will be the second KS (and there is a third pre-order game) I am waiting for where the delay is due to a lack of cardboard.

surprise

I have not received any shipping notices or emails explaining the delay - I learned about all three here on BGG.

Again, logistics is not my specialty so I'm sure I'm missing something, but....

You are a small distributor and are conscripted to do a relatively large order (Gamerati).

How did that conversation go I wonder?

Worker: "Hey boss, we got an awesome job to ship out stuff from Petersen games and it starts in a couple weeks. Think we should order some more boxes?"

Boss: "Nah, what would we need those for? And heck, if we need more we'll just order them AFTER shipping has started. It is not like people will actually want to receive their orders. Prompt delivery is not something most consumers want out of a warehouse."

LOL

See, I need only publicly complain and the Elder Gods hear me.

Just received my second confirmation of the rest of my stuff.

In the words of the Great Al Pacino: Whooo-ha!

I live about 20 miles from Gamerati and would be very happy to receive even one ship notice.

I received an email earlier in the week for 1/19th of my order and haven't heard about the rest. Yesterday my Primeval Map showed up... but I'm still waiting on the other 18 items I ordered.

June 5th is pretty much over. Have all the packages shipped "as planned" or is there another delay?

I received no shipping notice.

Update: Well, I got part of an answer - Gamerati sent me a shipping notice this morning. There may be a second shipment if they cannot cram it all into one box.
