I just received my pre-order, and besides the promised extra figs there was a letter thanking me for my pre-order that appeared to have been actually signed (not just a signed and copied) by some of the Flying Frog staff.

I think that's a great little extra; pre-orders help get these games produced and it's very nice to see a company make an effort to acknowledge it.

BTW, the game looks fantastic. US Priority mail managed to damage the box a little, but all of the boards and other components are fine. Going to play it at a party tonight! Let the death ray zorching commence! goo

Im so jealous. Ive been waiting patiently all day long. Tracking says it left a facility, thats only 2 hrs away, about 12 hrs ago. Not sure the process for USPS Priority but that seems like an awfully long time. Im just crossing my fingers I wont have to wait til Monday.

Just received mine as well. VERY nice. However, I seem to have gotten a duplicate L board. I have two of the board with the House of Horrors / Fortune Teller / Concession stand.

The other four I have are:
Fun House / Bear Tent
Ferris Wheel / Trapeze Tent
Animal Pens / We Olde Curiosity Shop / Shooting Gallery
Storage Room / The Arcade / Second State Tent

Marstov, would you mind listing what the other L-board is?

Awesome, thanks!

One more question. Did your set come with domes just for the normal Martian troops (18), or did you get domes for the Martian Leader too?

The Martian Leader does not need a dome. He has a breath mask.

I got the letter in my copy as well, and yes it was hand signed by the guys. Classy move.

After browsing the rules, sleeving the cards, and punching and organizing all the bits, I am really excited to play this one! It has just the right amount of new stuff to make it fun and interesting, but just enough similar stuff, that I could have it up and playing in an hour after opening the box.

Thanks Flying Frog!

Interesting, I have two of the same board as well. I wonder how common that duplication is? Nothing an email to FFP won't fix though.

I'm in awe of the amount of stuff in that box. It's quite happy making! Hopefully I can convince my girlfriend to get this on the table tonight.

I got the letter too, along with a pair of buttons. Very nice touch, no wonder I keep ordering from them.

Sorry. The wife had the camera all weekend at a huge bachelorette party thing, and I didn't want to upload crappy camera phone pics. I'll get some tonight if I haven't been beaten to the punch...
