my 2nd wave order was placed through Gamesurplus.com, and after seeing all the 2nd wave postings here i contacted them yesterday (5/11) for an update...and was told FFG would be shipping my order direct to me...so i then contacted them for an update, and just this morning (5/12) rec'd this email:

"Greetings John,

We have only begun the shipping process, which is pretty slow since we have to assemble the outer carton for every game. We hope to have a majority of them sent out by the end of next week.


Games Surplus will get an email when their invoices are ready to ship, at that point they would be able to contact us for tracking information if needed."

hope this helps...John

YAY!

Mine is from Game Surplus as well! I've been checking their web site for updates, but have seen nothing updated in the last two weeks. So this is good news!

...off to check email again... sauron

I swapped email with Thor today and he has been billed. Same word from him - shipping is happening now and the goal to complete is the end of next week.

We received our copy today - ordered from FFG in the US, live in Canada.

Definately worth the wait and cost!

Did you get an email notifying you of shipment? My order on the FFG site hasn't changed status yet.

Here's the reply I got from FFG:
Quote:
Greetings Jeff,

They have arrived at our warehouse and we are starting to ship them out. The process is rather slow as we have to do some assembly to make sure each game is ready and safe to ship.

You will receive an email as soon as your has been confirmed for shipping.


Hopefully this means I'll have the game before Memorial Day!

Being in Canada I got the usual email confirming that if I wanted the game I had to shell out more for shipping charges.

I responded to that email 10 minutes after it arrived saying to go ahead, got an email confirming the extra charges the next day and about a day later again another from UPS with my shipping details.

Here is an update posted on the Games Surplus website (in the CE game entry)

Quote:
5/13/2010 FFG has received the 2nd wave of games and is in the process of assemblying the outer boxes and shipping them out to our customers. When they finish shipping all the orders, they will notify us. We will then be able to get tracking numbers as desired. It is their goal to ship all of the orders by the end of the day 5/14/10...this is just a goal...not set in stone.

Hmmm... seems to keep going back and forth between the end of this week and the end of next week. I wonder which it will be?

Thor posted this on the Games Surplus web site:

Quote:
5/17/10 FFG told me today that the process of assemblying the outer boxes and making it possible to ship each game out is going _painstakingly_ slow. They will be working on getting orders out this entire week.

Thanks guys, you rock! I ordered mine a bit later. Getting so hard for me to wait any longer I'm afraid.

Picked it up from our apartment complex's leasing office today & could not quite fit it in the trunk. Lugged the 46-pounder up three flight of stairs & set it on the coffee table where it lay for 3 hours until my better half came home (I had domestic duties to take care of). Upon seeing the box she became a little distressed (just having worked a 13-hour shift) so I fixed her a cocktail. She helped me unbox it while we watched the season finales of the NBC Thursday night comedies. Upon finally making it through the last layer of protective cardboard she tried to mask her visible look of astonishment by saying (while laughing) "That looks like a giant book or something" and I cut her of mid-sentence saying "It's supposed to resemble a giant Elven tome." very matter-of-factly. She laughed and said "You are officially the biggest nerd I know!" After making our way through the contents of the tome and admiring the craftsmenship & attention to detail of the 248 hand-painted figures & the gorgeous rulebook, she proceeded to post the arrival of said object on Facebook. Next thing you know everyone's chiming in about this. Everything from "Oh, he's a dork… let's do D&D next time I visit." (tongue in cheek) to "Sounds awesome! Let's see some pics of this construction of lore." Next thing you know she's posting pictures on Facebook. Now I have people wanting to play this game that I never would have guessed would be interested ( I'm a closet BGG). Even though she would be the last to admit it, she's impressed.

I am totally satisfied & even after looking at the pictures posted here at BGG & reading posts for the last 8+ months daily… It is even better than I was lead to believe. This is, of course, aesthetically speaking. The figures have such fine detail that can only be appreciated with the naked eye. I don't know, but it looks like the painters improved upon the models of the first wave. Everything about this package is impressive & I feel lucky (& glad that I took the leap on purchasing this) that I am one of the 2000 worldwide owners of this milestone achievement of board game history.

Cheers to the designers & fans that made this happen. You made me officially one of the happiest nerds I know. Thank you.

It really came today! As others have said, the pictures posted don't do the game justice.

And my wife didn't throw me out when she saw the size of it!

Now to find a table big enough to play it on...

Nothing from Games Surplus for me yet....

I ordered one of the last ones they had allocated (Ordered first week of February) So maybe I'm at the end of the list.
