Did anyone else purchase the game California from tanga on Sunday?
According to my account they have not even shipped the game yet. How long does Tanga usually take?

My only order with them took 2+ weeks to ship, and only shipped after I made a forum post asking what the hell was taking so long shake

I ordered a game from them a couple of weeks ago (not California) and they shipped it next business day. It arrived five days later.

What you save in money you pay in time. I have made 3 purchases through Tanga and all of them have taken at least a week to reach me. Hopefully it's not a terrible inconvenience, I'm sure they'll ship soon.

Oh, and I hope you like the game Preston. I thought it was fairly enjoyable. The mechanics were somewhat unique, but the theme is kind of thin. Rikki really didn't like it for some reason, she said she didn't see the theme at all, and just felt like she was moving around tiles.

This post at Tanga might explain part of the delay as well - loss of internet connection, so having to prepare labels via an alternate means.

I've ordered a bunch of stuff from Tanga. It's all over the map, timewise. Sometimes it ships the next day, sometimes it takes 2 weeks before it even leaves their warehouse.

Generally, assume that Tanga will take 3 weeks to get to you. If it comes faster, you can be happily surprised.

I've done a lot of buying off Tanga. I'd say the average has been 9 days from purchase to on my door step (I'm in Florida). BUT, the past couple months they have been exceeding that average by a couple days. The last one I ordered on the 5th. It got to me on the 15th. 10 days.

Thanks for the info. I was not in a hurry but it is good to know about their delay in shipping. Otherwise I would have worried that my order didn't go through or something.

They probably should be more upfront about their sporadic shipping times just so people know not to worry.

Thanks again everyone.
