What next?

I'll check it to see when it's expected to arrive, and then set it up to receive a notification when the package arrives. I'll check again the day it's scheduled for delivery, to make sure all is still running on time, and then I just wait for the notification.

I track the package like it's got my replacement heart in it.

It all stems from when I ordered my Mini Cooper. After it was assigned a VIN I could track where it was in the factory (marriage, paint, ...) , when it got to the dock, when it was loaded on a ship, the real-time physical position of the ship in the ocean, docking, unloading, prep, transport, ahhhhhhh....gimme gimme gimmee.....!!!

I intercept YOUR tracking number and then wait on your front porch while you're at work. Now I'm drinking your milkshake!

And I'll bet it still cost less to ship that than it did to ship Conquest of the Empire.

True. They could probably pack two cars to each one of those game boxes.
