I too received the e-mail, I too noticed a signature would be required, and I too am out during the day.

Breathless anticipation mixed with agonized fear and frustration. Oh wait a minute, that's just the Starbucks Expresso effect.

With luck the nice lady in the leasing office will sign for it, but then I'll have to be extra nice to her to prise it out of her hands. I wonder if she's a closet gamer.....

What am I talking about? We're ALL closet gamers.....

I didn't think you could send board games via media mail. I tried once and the counter clerk told me it was for books and movies only.

I thought so too, maybe Uwe has a connection at the post office but my email says

Mail Class..............Media Mail

Oh well, I'll be happy when it gets here anyway!!

Can someone explain what media mail is? We don't have that option here in Canada, and this is the first I've heard of it.

Generally, it means: "mangled".

Well I guess there's something to be said for paying $40 for shipping... you can't send Media Mail international and from what people are saying this looks like a good thing!

Still no shipping notice for me yet though.

Edit - Just got my email, and no mention of media mail. Woo!

Just had my copy delivered in NW Pennsylvania. It appears that Uwe signed the boxcover, pretty cool little bonus.

Aw man - I hope he didn't - I hate having my boxcovers defaced in any way (even by the designer's scrawl...)

The two bottom corners on one of the shorter sides were a bit smooshed, but not enough to tear the colored paper coating the cardboard. The box is nearly perfect and doesn't bother me in the least. It certainly isn't "mangled" though, so worry not.

Thanks for the headsup Jason! Any idea what shipping method was used? I'm in Vegas and I want to try and be home or have my wife be home when it arrives

Cheers,

Jacovis

hey
I got my invoice on Friday and it says its being sent through Usps (media mail). I read somewhere that Uwe's only using USPS. also it does say that a signature IS required for delivery...which sucks because theres no one at the house during working hours.

Hmmm....
I checked with the post office and they said I was OK, since I was sending boards and bound rules. No rules broken.

As for everyone scared of the games coming in damaged, they are packaged in an outer box with an inch of peanuts all around. This is still a 7lb game, but I will be surprised if there are many problems.

All pre-ordered overseas games were shipped USPS priority air. You should have them in 5-7 days.

Please believe me that I am not trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes. I feel that the games will get to our customers in good condition and hope that they will love the games when they arrive. We did not put all of the time and money into a high quality game just to have it mangled in shipping.

Lastly, my experience is that the most vocal complainers are the ones who don't even order the game from us at full MSRP or from their local retail store, but are the ones who order from the online mass discounters. It is tough to make everyone happy, but we will continue to try.

Uwe

One last thing, 95% of my sales are to distributors. I only take a few pre-orders to grease the online discussions. This especially helps the retailers sell more games as word of mouth spreads. So I do appreciate all of you who take your games to a local store and demo them there. It helps you find new opponents and really helps the stores out.

Thanks,
Uwe

Can anyone with more USPS experience than me clear something up?

When I click my confirmation number, the latest update is:

September 28, 2009 16:01:00 GLENDALE, CA 91206 ARRIVAL AT UNIT

91206 is my zipcode; does that mean that it got to my apartment, or to the post office? There wasn't a note taped to my door or anything. I probably won't be home during business hours until Friday. Is there any danger of it being returned to sender, because I'm there to pick it up?

That means it made it to your post office.
