Hello,

I made my first ever order from artscow for Forbidden Island cards. They shipped Feb 14th, but have not yet arrived. Does it normally take this long? Could they be stuck at customs or something? Is there any way to find out?

Thanks

i have several orders that are taking a very long time as well and yes i believe customs has something to do with this.

I don't know what it is but I always feel like I get them super quick. Maybe I need to start tracking order date vs arrival date to see if I am just making that up in my head.

Alright then. Thanks a lot for the replies. I hope you get your cards, but it's kinda good to know it may not be just me.

My order took over 3 weeks (to New Zealand). They're in Hong Kong. Add an extra 2 weeks for USPS?

Nah, Artscow always seems to take 3 or 4 weeks for me.

Well worth it though. Usually their product is top notch. I've ordered at least 15 - 20 different decks of cards and have never had a problem.

Cheers.

Ordered mine (also the Forbidden Island deck) on Jan 25th. Got a shipping confirmation email on Feb 6th. Arrived here in Southern California USA on Feb 14th.

If they ship by ground then your proximity to a major international port will influence shipping time.

received 2 of my outstanding orders today which were placed about a week apart so i would surmise some sort of weather/travel/customs issue is holding things up.
