Got one copy today in Alabama!! Yay! Hoping that they are in individual boxes, because I ordered the two copies pack via kickstarter. (My gaming buddy now has to wait for his, I guess!) The game looks great (although still in shrink) in a big, sturdy box like the base games for C&C: Ancients and C&C: Napoleonics. Came in a medium size priority mail box with one extra glossy card with 2 scenarios (White Plains and Stono Ferry - these are the Kickstarter Bonus Scenarios), but no shipping or invoice paperwork. I'm not sure if that is typical for Compass Games.

That shrink won't last long. Time for some stickers to go on!

No shipping notice, but when I emailed Compass Games that only one game of two ordered was here, they emailed back right away, saying the other shipped as well and should arrive Monday. I did get a tracking number in that email, for the second game, which I appreciate.

USPS, in a priority mail medium flat rate box with a few Styrofoam peanuts. One shrinkwrapped game and one glossy cardstock scenario sheet inside. No shipping or invoice paperwork in or out. I was a little worried because the box was a little pushed in and it had a crushed corner, but the game was not where the crush was. It looks fine, and when I finish grading papers, I'm starting on the shrinkwrap and the stickers!

I can't imagine that there aren't others who have lucked out with the USPS. Connecticut to Alabama in 2 days!

This is good news. I hope to receive the game before I leave on a week long business trip on the 27th. Come on Compass!

I feel sure that you'll have it by then. Priority mail should only take 2-3 days.

The game is now stickered and baggied and all parts inventoried. Guys, you will really like the components! The terrain tiles are beautiful and sturdy, and practically fell off the countersheet. The mapboard is mounted nicely and all creases fold flat without wrinkles. I had no extra Hessian (dark blue) small blocks, but extras of all the others. The stickers fit on the blocks without any overhang. The cards are very nice.

Can't wait to look over the rules and start playing - too bad the weekend is over, but at least this baby is ready to go for a spin!

Still waiting in Wisconsin. Not sure why some game publishers do not forward a shipping notice to their customers (not just Compass, other big publishers too). It really helps to have a heads up on when the game is going to show up considering the money we put down for these things. I've never had anything stolen from my door so I'll wait till the end of the week before I go into freak-out mode surprise

Edit - emailed Compass and they sent a Tracking number today, my copy is currently at the USPS facility in Milwaukee, should get the game Friday/Saturday

Edit - Game arrived today 8/25, very impressed at first look

Two copies arrived in Orlando yesterday. Separate USPS
Pro mail boxes. Stickered my Continentals, punched my terrain, sleeved all my cards. Finish my stickers tomorrow night and looking forward to getting it on the table at game day on Saturday.

My first copy landed. Keeping an eye out for the second. The production values are first rate. Eight battle dice with pre-printed faces and enough stickers to work up ten more. Easy to like that!

For those of us who did not Kickstart it, Cool Stuff says it will carry the game, but doesn't know yet when they will have it. So we retail folks are still waiting...

My order is complete! I'd say games are still in the process of shipping, so I recommend patience if you're still expecting one.

Are you saying that Compass changed the status of your order from "Processing" to "Complete" on their website?
