Fantastic!

I have just ordered a copy of Starcraft, with free shipping to Norway!

Hopefully they will send it as a book, so I avoid the customs:-)

Thanks for the best tip so far!


Edit: spelling

I've had a look, but they have no way to define between a book and a game, so you end up trudging through acres of chess strategy guides and the like, so gave up, although there may be some in there somewhere!

I did a few other searches, and whilst they had most of Fantasy Flight's catalogue listed, none of them were in stock. I also did a search for Settlers and Rio Grande and it turned up nothing at all.

Tell her it's a blow-up doll. You'll be in a lot less trouble.

Sneaking a large game past the Missus can be in many ways like making love to a beautiful woman. You don't need fine wines and Belgian chocolates. You wait until she's not looking, whip it out onto the table and when she asks what it is you simply ask her if she's ever seen one so big.

Hello everyone.

Can someone tell me how reliable is The book depository is with their shipping?
I ordered Starcraft from them on 07 of January, they said they would take between 2-3 days to dispatch it but till now I got nothing
I mailed them already and got a prompt response but they did not solve nothing although they said they would refund me or give me another Starcraft if this one wouldn`t arrive in the next couple of days.

Thanks.

I received mine after 5 days, to Norway.
Check if they have sent your order, you can do that by clicking on your account and look at open orders, or order history if it is already sent.

In my order status it still says Picking and Packing but when I mailed them they told that they already sent it

Quote:
Dear Richardo,


I am terribly sorry to hear that you have not received your shipment, we dispatched the title to

RICARDO RODRIGUES
STUBEWEG 51

FREIBURG
79106
GERMANY



Is this the correct address?



It really should have arrived by now; perhaps it is delayed in the post. We are happy to send you a free replacement or refund you in full. Whichever you prefer.

Thank You

Kirsty Halford

Customer Advisor

The Book Depository Ltd

So I am finding all of this a little bit strange.
When you made your order what did they write on the order status after Picking and Packing, DISPATCHED? And when you order it what did it say there "Usually dispatched within 24 hours" or "Usually dispatched within 2-3 days."?

Thanks.

It said usually dispatched in 2 or 3 days. This is really strange. It strange that it says picking and packing, when they also say they they have sent it. Maybe they haven`t sent it.

Good thing though, that they will replace it or give you a full refund (guess you want the game, since it was very cheap).

Hopefully your game will arrive, and usually it does.

Good luck!

Mine said "picking and packing" for 3 days. Then it was sent by airmail and arrived two days later.
