"Blow up the damned ship, Jean-Luc!"

Dr: Hello, Mary. How are you today?

M: I'm going nuts...Oh, sorry about that. I'm waiting for the games I ordered to come in. It's very hard.

Dr: What did you order?

M: I pre-ordered Camelot Legends from FunAgain on August 15th. They were the only ones offering it then. It said it was due in sometime in August. Great, I thought, August is half over. Then I checked back a week later and I noticed it didn't say "August", it said "Autumn"! Well, *that* narrows it down, huh?

Dr: I'm sure they're doing the best they can. You have to understand that it's probably the producers or the printers or something FunAgain has no control over.

M: Oh, I know. It just doesn't make it any easier. So then I ordered Einfach Genial and Modern Art from Fair Play Games. Einfach Genial will be available in 5-30 days, so I have to wait for that order, too. I'm in need a of new game! Hurry, hurry.

Dr: Mary, do you know there are people on the other side of the world who are starving for games? They have to wait months for them to be shipped by canoe!

M: Yes, I've heard that. How does that help me?

Dr: You must learn patience, Mary. Good gamers have patience.

M: Patience?!! PATIENCE?!! Let's see how patient you are waiting for me to pay my bill!!!

What calendar is it using? I believe there's a Jewish one in which the current year is around 1460, in which case you have a while yet.

There there
We all understand Mary. I had my order of Keythedral held up because one of the other games was out of stock. It arrived unexpectedly on Saturday. I got Santiago, Category 5, Keythedral and the green killer Bunnies expansion. That last one is because I'm a completist. Or anal. I can't decide.

Don't worry. It will be there soon. I heard it's a pretty great game too.

Wow you are scaring me. I ordered Camelot Legends mid August (afraid to check the date and find out it's the 15th) as well and now I'm addicted to flexgames playing Lost Cities regularly. I wonder if I'm typing under Sodaklady while I'm sleepwalking....

I see Zmangames saying it shipped to distributors on the 24th so I was kind of expecting some good news last week or this at the latest. Really looking forward to the game.

Canoe? Canoe?
Mary,

It's a good thing you didn't order Tongiaki, because I heard that they ship that one EVERYWHERE by canoe!

What? No, I didn't tell her tha..

Um, gotta go.

I only have one game on order...but its Age of Steam and its been about 9 or 10 months. Now..the company has been truthful with me and offered me to change my order...but I'd rather just let it sit there. One day, I'll come home to find a present on the porch and it will be my Age of Steam game.

"Yippee!" I'll say.

That would be a nice surprise, Chester. I'm hoping to have a nice surprise waiting for me when I get home from school today (courtesy of a trade with a Mr. Jon Waddington).

Ahhh...more games.

If you're using the Chinese calendar, then the game is WAY overdue. It's 4702!

Mary, do you know there are people on the other side of the world who are starving for games? They have to wait months for them to be shipped by canoe!

As one of those people waiting for their games to be shipped to them by canoe (I ordered my copies of Power Grid and Goa last August - I'm expecting them by November if I'm lucky), I probably need to see a shrink myself.

Good thing there's BSW. It's better (and cheaper) than a shrink. laugh I pay for it when I happen to unluckily wander into a game with assorted idiots, morons and whiners tho...

I bought it at a local gamestore a week ago, so I'm glad I didn't order it online!
