Just got an email saying my copy has been shipped!

If anyone wants to find me I'll be at my computer obsessively checking the UPS shipping status all week.

I thought the Mines were in Moria?

Good news then. I expect others will start to receive these notifications shortly. (Or perhaps their order status at FFG is updated.)

Edit: Assuming FFG is fulfilling these on a first-ordered, first-shipped basis, care to share when you ordered your copy?

I'm in the first wave and I haven't seen any notification here yet.

Must be in the order in which people ordered the game.

'E-mail refresh'!!!

I looked at FFG web site and it said that the game was 'shipping pending'.

I'm out of fingernails. All I have are stumps. Better not be a cruel joke.

I thought that is what all FFG pre-orders stated right after the pre-order was placed. Or at least I thought that was what my order status has been these last few months.

To be honest, this was the first time I looked it up. It may have had that 'shipping pending' statement all along since the original pre-order.

I imagined FFG's front page would have some sort of announcement about this. I guess not. Mine was preordered on day one, but no email. cry

Congratulations!

Now I have a new reason to hover over my email account obsessively, for I have received no shipping notification. zombie

Does it say what shipping method they used? Ground? 2nd Day?...

If you go to the Upcoming page and check out WotR:CE, you will clearly see that the status icon has switched to "Shipping Now". Last week it was still listed as On the Boat.

Also this little bit was just added in the description:

**This is the half of the print run shipping first**

Do I understand there will be two shipments? The first wave now and a later shipment in May perhaps?

Approximately what order date would qualify for the first wave of shipments?

Everyone's excitement level is through the roof. Still... no one else has recieved an e-mail, kind of weird.

I also noticed FFG's website was uptaed to "shipping now". It also says estimated time was 7-10 days. So if it was updated to day.. then 7 days is March 1st, and 10 days is March 4th.

It's almost to good to be true that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

I logged into my store account but all it says is "pending shipping" which isn't that inspiring. Still, my birthday is soon and it would be great to have that to pull out for the party.

Me too recently I've received an email from my seller (giochinscatola.it) and they say my copy will be shipped soon, probably coming to my home before middle of March (they're receiving copies for the end of this month and then they'll provide shipping to buyers).

Hope we can finally see this game for real! My precioussss!

That is very BASIC and will keep you busy forever - unless someone breaks your loop ...

May I suggest the following:


10. Repeat Check Email
Until Email from FFG And Shipping Confirmed
End-Repeat

20. Jump in the Air

30. Repeat Track Package Online
Until Package In LocalDistribution
End-Repeat

40. Jump in the Air (2x)

50. Repeat Check Frontdoor
Until Postman Rings (2x) And Correct(Package)
End-Repeat

60. Kiss Postman 2x

70. Dance with Postman

80. Repeat Be Happy
Until 1==2
End-Repeat



BTW This will not work for me, I ordered at Essen. Did anybody receive a shipping confirmation email from Nexus yet?

I'm in wave two, but I'm almost as excited about you first wave folks getting The Game as you are. It will be great to see all the pics and read all of the reviews. That will at least help the time pass a little faster.

By the way, Wave 2 is showing as being on the boat at FFG website. God speed!

Herr der Ringe CE - Update Feb 10
Die Herr der Ringe Collector?s Edition befindet sich seit einigen Tagen auf dem Schiff von Hong Kong nach Hamburg. Rechtzeitig vor Chinese New Year wurde das Spiel fertig gestellt. In Hamburg werden wir der ersten und zweiten Charge die Sonderminiaturen hinzufügen und per DHL sofort an alle Kunden versenden.

Da wir nicht auf den Tag genau sagen können, wann der Dampfer in Hamburg eintrifft, werden wir Euch hierzu sofort informieren wenn wir die gute Nachricht erhalten haben.

Das reguläre Spiel "Herr der Ringe - der Ringkrieg" wird 2011 neu aufgelegt. Hierzu wird es ebenfalls eine Regel-Update geben.


From the actual Phalanx News letter. Interessting that 1st and 2nd wave will be the addtional pieces

Apparently the inclusion of the bonus figures is slowing down the shipping. Here is the response to an inquiry I sent in:

"You will be getting a game out of the first wave. We have to do some assembly on our end for each game (adding the bonus figures) so it will take some time for us to ship out all 400 from the first wave. The warehouse does have your invoice, and once they ship you will get a confirmation email."...

I got something similar from Fantasy Flight:

"You will receive an email once your copy of the game does leave our building.
If you are shipping with UPS you should get that number in the email.
Thanks,
Rick Nauertz"
