Not here in Indiana but . . . .

So has anyone received the Collector's Edition? Please report it here, the FB list, Kickstarter pages or? As you can tell, I am waiting less than patiently.

There was an update on the 28th on ADG's website that read something like this:

"The preorder price will remain until April 15th, right after the games start hitting your doors. Assuming you place your order right away."

I'm hoping to have mine by the 15th... Fingers crossed.

If I was a betting man I'd say

Germany first (as you say hopefully end of next week or Monday next), rest of Europe second (depending on your postal service), Australia third, US 4th, and Africa, the rest of America and the rest of Asia Pacific fifth, maybe 3 to 4 weeks maximum if you are in Antarctica.

First person to get their copy please post a comment on our Collector's edition blog https://www.a-d-g.com.au/blogs/have-your-say/world-in-flames.... You will have got your game before me

regards

I just had a short email conversation with Mark, the US Distributor. He said it should arrive in his part of Michigan Monday or Tuesday and he will start sending them out Wednesday. That is, of course, barring any natural disaster, unnatural disaster or the Bunny Apocalypse.

Cheers,
Paul

Harry sent this message on Wednesday 4/18:

After 10 long years of development, Australian Design Group is thrilled to announce the worldwide release of the world's biggest boardgame, World in Flames: the collector's edition. The game has been completely updated, revised and streamlined and the game and all the kits (Planes in Flames, Ships in Flames, Divisions in Flames and Territories in Flames) are now fully compatible with all games in the World in Flames series (all versions of World in Flames, America in Flames, Patton in Flames and Days of Decision).

The games for Europe and Africa have already arrived at our European office and you can check out videos of the official first unveiling here. The games for the Americas, Asia and the Pacific are currently flying their way or going through customs and we are expecting all our very patient advance order customers will receive your long-awaited game in the next two weeks.

Due to the delay in getting the game released we have decided to extend the advance order discount date until the 22nd April if you or a friend would like to place any further orders for any of the World in Flames games or kits. If you want to download the full colour rules and charts now so you are ready to play the game when it arrives, please go to our downloads page.

If you have changed your address since placing your order, please contact your local agent:

Americas: Mark - vnnrtwm(at)aol.com
Europe & Africa: Ben - info(at)richter-kosim.de
Asia & the Pacific: Belinda - belinda.belinda044(at)gmail.com

Thank you very much for your support for our games over the years and we hope you enjoy the lavish effort by many people that has gone into making World in Flames: the Collector's edition the best, most researched and most comprehensive strategic game ever.

regards

Harry Rowland

Wif Collector Edition has arrived in USA - in Buffalo New York today (April 30, 2018).

It is a beast.

The mounted maps are exceptional.

Did you know it would arrive? Did you get a shipping notice or tracking information?

Mine arrived on Friday, and I did get a shipping notice.

On April 27th I received an email USPS shipping notification out of Lansing Michigan with a tracking number.

I wasn't sure what the shipping notification was for since I am waiting on a few items. I suspected it might have been WiF but I thought they shipped from California from the last time I ordered (but I really don't remember where they shipped from before).

The box is HEAVY - I got two copies.

Im almost positive I was one of the first to order as I was working midnights when it got posted on the ADG site. I actually thought I was too late - time zones dates got confusing when I was exhausted. I wrote Harry and he said it was all good.

I got a letter in the regular mail Friday saying I was allowed to retreive a 6.9 kilo package from the local post office, but had no advance warning about it at all. Used my powers of deduction to conclude that it had to be WiF and rushed off to get it. Magnificent.

Mine arrived yesterday. There was a shipping notice.

The game is heavy (as everyone expects) and, unfortunately, packed in a cardboard box just big enough to hold the game. This means that a dent in the outer box will likely become a dent on the game box too. While some people go overboard about minor dings on a box,* a completely split corner right out of the shrink wrap on a game this expensive is disappointing. But at least it wasn't a corner of the box with the maps.
