I'm getting sick of 'empty porch' letdown in the evening after work. I'm getting ready to bug the company again. Before I do, I just want to check to see whether I'm one of a few or one of the many.
Poll
If you are a JKLM/Prime pre-order customer, have you received your game? Please do not answer if you ordered from Z-Man or picked up your game at Essen.
Yes and I live in the U.S.
No and I live in the U.S.
Yes and I do not live in the U.S.
No and I do not live in the U.S.

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

I got mine; the two other locals I know of who pre-ordered have not.

*sigh*

I feel exactly the same way...

I chide myself for getting so upset by a silly game when there are so many other things to be caring about, but I am who I am.

Based on early returns, I think I'll be patient.

I have not yet received mine. I also bought another copy a few weeks ago, so I am not in THAT much of a hurry.

Their "No Woman, No Cry" cover was really popular when I was in high school.

Just because the juxtapostion amuses me so much (18XX/Fugazi), and because it's been a while...

Same story here. I finally gave up on ever seeing my pre-ordered copy, so I picked up a copy before they disappeared from the retail channel. I don't know if this will go back to commanding $150+ for a copy but I wasn't interested in waiting around to find out....

My replacement copy arrived today, so they're making good on the lost orders. This was the time line.

2/5/2011: I email Prime asking how they would like to handle the missing game.

2/9/2011: I'm cc'd on an email to an internal guy asking that he send me a new copy of 1860.

2/11/2011: Signature on the customs declaration.

2/14/2011: Delivery in MN.

I would wager with fairly high confidence that you guys are eventually going to receive duplicate copies of these games once your esteemed national customs department gets its sh*t in order. What do you intend to do with the duplicate copies if that occurs?

Let Prime know that it arrived and give them my PayPal account name for the return postage.

Ooh, that's a good one. I was going to suggest an auction with proceeds (after the costs of postage, packing, shipping factored) going to some charity or another.

That's not for me to decide. It's their game, and if they want it sent back I'll mail it to them. Of course, it actually has to show up first before any of this matters.

Actually, I've had this happen once before. And, yes, I've waited longer than that to ask for a replacement. What I did in that situation was to contact the manufacturer and ask what I should do. I suggested selling the game locally and paypaling the money to them. They agreed and set a minimum price. It sold and I sent them the money.

If I get another copy, I'll do the same. Ask what to do and offer to sell it rather than potentially risk a return journey.

I think you're reading your customs wrong.

Mine says 2/11/10.

The rest of the world uses a day/month/year format, it is only the Americans who are fucked up and do it month/day/year.

Well that would certainly make a lot more sense than a 3 day delivery from the UK. I was a bit baffled as to how that might have happened, but figured that it was on a plane, I'm in a hub city, etc.

I threw out the envelope at my office, so I won't be able to double-check the date, but I'm sure that you are correct.

I just received my copy; it didn't have any dates on the customs declaration, though, so I don't even know which copy I got!

(It's a bit dented, but it looks okay.)

Sigh. It does say "2/11/10."

Mine arrived today, too. The box was a bit crushed, but everything inside was in good shape. My token stickers were even centered correctly. So I can't complain any more than I already have. I'm just glad the wait is over.

It's here. Yay. Small box crush but components seem to be complete. I'm a happy camper.
