I haven't received my preorder of Agricola from ZMan yet. I received an email from UPS on Aug 1 stating my delivery date would be Aug 7th. Not only has my copy not yet arrived, UPS says that Chessex hasn't even given them a package to ship yet. I emailed Chessex. I Geekmailed Zev. Still no response from either.

This sucks. soblue

Re: Am I the only person whose preorder has not been shipped?
I feel your pain, my brother. I pre-ordered on 11/16/07. As of today, 08/09/08, no email and no Agricola. You are not alone!

Wow...that really sucks. Although I have had UPS tell me they never got a package from the shipper and then have had it arrive on the same day, so don't always trust UPS. I sure hope it shows up soon...for my own selfish reasons ofcourse.cool

Poor Fraser.
Seems to me that you need to put the "wife token" on the "Air plane to OMGSPIELESSEN" action space so she can bring one back for you.

A copy of that from OMGEssen (TM) would blow her luggage allowance and she would ditch those Power Grid thingies instead cry

I'm in the exact same situation. Delivery date was Aug 4th. Tracking number indicates that the game hasn't been shipped yet. Two emails to Z-Man and no replies.

Maybe they're at a convention or something?

Re: Am I the only person whose preorder has not been shipped?
I'm in the exact same position. I was suppose to receive on the 7th and was told by UPS that they never received the package. I should of suspected that something was amiss when I never got real tracking information. In any event I contacted Chessex directly, they were very helpful and sent another game on Friday. I now have real tracking info showing the game on its way.

Below is information on how to contact Chessex:

Phone: 888-243-7739
260-471-9511
Name: Doug Griffith
email: contact@chessex.com
dougdice@yahoo.com

Hope this helps.

Re: Am I the only person whose preorder has not been shipped?
Don't know if it was the email and call to Chessex or the email to Zev that got my ball back in motion, but Zev responded to me yesterday by saying that if I got notification from UPS then it should have been picked up by them (which according to UPS is not how it actually works). Then he wrote to me again today and said that he reshipped a new one.

Hope, for the moment, is again restored.

I got a new email this morning from UPS saying my shipment has been rescheduled and that my shipment's status is "Exception"
Exception Reason: TRACER REQUEST
Exception Status/Resolution: LOST PACKAGE TRACER (RESOLUTION)

Sorry for the boring details, but I figure some in the same boat might wish to compare the play by play.

Maybe you'll end up getting two copies and you can give one to someone who lives really close by to you.

Re: Am I the only person whose preorder has not been shipped?
Update: I'm still seeing no progress whatsoever on my UPS tracking number. So I have no indication, other than Zev's word on Monday, that my package is moving or has even begun shipping.

Since I was given a UPS tracking number (which was the exact same one I received initially on August 1st) I suspect that this is what I should be using to follow progress. I assure all that that is exactly what I've been doing. To date (I've now been clicking and checking repeatedly for a full two days) I still see no progress on my shipment. So I emailed Zev again today.

I'm starting to see retailers get their copies and reading that people are now ordering from retailers and report their shipping dates. This is discouraging to say the least. I'm starting to wonder whether there is a limited supply that Zev can ship for pre-orders and if mine hasn't been sent yet, will Zev run out?

This is making me think that if I really do want to own a copy (as I have known since I pre-ordered in Dec 2007) that maybe I should buy a retail copy so at least I have some insurance that I will have a copy at all.

I know many pre-order people have received their copies already. But, all in all, the pre-order system has been very disappointing for me and still is. soblue

Wow...that is really horrible. I know Games of Berkeley is getting it in today and I think Endgames got it yesterday. Mine is suppose to arrive on Friday from Thought Hammer and I can actually see mine moving.

You should see if Zev will refund you and ship you just the animepples and go buy it at one of the stores.

Re: Am I the only person whose preorder has not been shipped?
I preordered. Apparently something went wrong with the initial shipping. ZmanGames says it was reshipped monday. Unfortunately, the tracking number he gave me was for the original shipment which "experienced an exception," which is a fancy term for "never got delivered to me and only god knows why." So I haven't got the game, and I can't track it to see when its coming.

Re: Am I the only person whose preorder has not been shipped?
Well, I do want to give the system a chance to work, just not at the expense of me not getting my copy.

I got an email back from Zev (from his BlackBerry) who is at GenCon, saying that he was told that it went out, but that he cannot check until Tuesday shake. I just called Chessex and the guy who answered and said that everybody who did the Agricola shipment is at GenCon and won't be able to handle my questions until Monday.

It's starting to look like securing myself a copy through other means might be a good insurance strategy against the possibility of a total failure of their system for me.

I had my doubts about the pre-order system before, but I held my nose. Now I'm really starting to despise it.

Yup. Sounds like you and me are in the same boat Patrick.
