Or at least it will be if the post office have actually bothered to turn up and collect the 75 mail bags full of Gettysburgs that are sitting waiting to be shipped.

Awww shucks blush

You really should be thanking Julia. She has organised a super efficient system that means we can ship all the sub and pre-order copies less than a week after they arrived in our warehouse.

Mine did too!

Bits look great, board looks great

My only complaint? It's the first Treefrog game without a set of smaller baggies to put the bits in.
Not a major issue by any means (I'll just have to dive into my own collection) but it was always a nice touch.

I got some baggies - not enough for my tastes but then for previous Treefrog games I substituted better sized bags anyway.

My fault about the plastic bags. I forgot to ask Scheer to put some in the box. I only noticed after putting together about 100 copies. Since then some bags have been placed in each box.

No 38 here. I've just sorted out the big bag of bits, and it was precisely correct. No spare cubes or anything. Maybe it was relatively early in the run and the bit-counters hadn't got bored yet.

OK, Phil, if you got it in Willow Street on Wednesday, then there's hope for me in Lebanon today or tomorrow! Yummy!

Mine arrived in canada today as well, and since the "we must loose your mail for two weeks before you mistakenly deliver it to the guy living across the street" canadian mail system was that quick, I assume you used a time machine...

No bags, but I don't care - have a chance to play it today on Union side, survived till the morning of the third day but lost due to intensive artillery fire and brave attack of the rebels on the second starred area which they kept till end of the phase.

Better luck next time!

Somebody has a problem of compulsive collectionism.

Arrived last thursday and I picked it up from the post office on friday. I suffered from the inevitable mass production system flaws



I am impressed and delighted with the components, however, and I am glad to have ordered this game.

Possibly, but not due to this. I simply had a subscription. The subscription was worth it just for the other three games in the series. I still haven't even played Waterloo yet, and don't forsee it happening anytime soon.

Too bad. It really is a good game.
