I haven't heard anything yet about Her Majesty's colony in the Great White North, so I thought I'd start a thread, so people can let us know when deliveries or tracking numbers are received...!

Most likely Thunderstone. I haven't received a CMON game from anyone besides Canada Post.
But, let us know. We're all dying here!

Really? I would love it if they used Canada Post. All my CMON projects have been shipped to me via Fedex. It means I can't use my PO box which would be so much easier.

Delivery is listed as this Friday but it currently just says "Label created" so the package has not been picked up yet....

Purolator handled our Rising Sun (SE Ontario)...

Which might mean nothing.

I messaged CMON last month and received a reply Feb 1st. Here is the message:

Hello Adam,
Worldwide shipping for Rise of Moloch is currently underway.
Canadian shipping is expected to begin in the next few weeks.
Tracking will be emailed and posted to your account as soon as it is available from the hub.

Thank you

CMON Inc. Etc

That was just over three weeks ago...

I've heard that the "problem" is that CMON is using the same distributor for Rising Sun, Rise of Moloch, and Green Horde.

And that in an effort to keep themselves from being overwhelmed, they're finishing one first (Rising Sun), before moving on to the second.

Problem #1: There's a LOT of Rising Sun, and lots of people don't have it yet.

Problem #2: When Rising Sun is done, the Green Horde pile is hella bigger than the Rise of Moloch pile.

So, unless they have to move on to the World of Smog, I have to suspect that Green Horde comes next.

...if the sun ever fully rises in Canada!

That doesn't make sense. From a logistics perspective, you'd want to get the small orders out first, because they get completed quicker.
If you have an order with 500 packages to go out, vs. an order with 3000, you do the small one first because it clears space faster, and it's easier to get out the door.

That's just my shipper/receiver experience anyways.

If they're doing it as you say, it's either a rookie organizing things or some one who doesn't know what they're doing. It's certainly a very inefficient way to go about it. You'd be leaving a lot of the warehouse full by leaving the small orders until last, and you always need more space for what's incoming.

My guess is they're just overwhelmed, and are currently scrambling to even get anything out their doors.

I can wait. My huge pile of Massive Darkness needs paint anyways.

This occurred in Australia too, and it seemed to add a multi-week delay to the delivery of Rise of Moloch.

The distributor here sent them out in the order of Rising Sun -> Green Horde -> Rise of Moloch.

I'm not sure of the reasoning behind sending the Green Horde core box (early delivery) before Rise of Moloch (just slightly late)... I took it as a sign of which of the two games CMON cares more about.

Oh my God. Could I be one of the first too?!

It's being delivered today!

And... the notice came from Geekfunder BEFORE Canada Post, which has never happened before (maybe interfulfillment didn't send out a notice this time)

My copy arrived yesterday but no one was home to receive it from the postman. It's waiting for me at the post office now. Can't wait to get home and tear into it. Probably play it this weekend!

Got mine today in Calgary. Shipped via Canada Post, and 3 days earlier than what the tracking said.

Everything looks spectacular, and the plastic is even harder than what was used for Massive Darkness. This is the stiffest PVC I've seen yet.
