Not bragging, just happy to finally get it in.

By the way, did you get your other review?

Another Marylander here. Big surprize today in the mail for me as well.

Limited Edition Number 36!

Looks like the first viral outbreaks are on both the East and West coasts!

First impressions:

The game itself was well packed in a padded envelope, inside a cardboard box. The outside box looks like it took a few hits in shipping, but the game was inside was in perfect condition. I hate getting a game through the mail and it arrives all banged up, so I appreciated the extra effort they took in packing it.

3 packs of sleaves included, in addition to the promo cards, as a suprize bonus for pre-ordering. Completely unexpected. Nice touch. Very classy.

The art and cards are very well done. Sturdy cards with a linen finish. The typeface on the cards is a little small for us "old geezers", but other than that, great art, design, and graphics.

The divider cards are great for organizing the box, and they have additional details regarding how to use the specific cards in play. Great idea.

The rulebook is a rulebook, nicely printed, fairly clear, but could have used a few more illustrations detailing the cards and the game set-up.

The box itself is a work of art. Very sturdy and looks like an ammo box. Plenty of room for the sleaved cards, plus future expansions. Soft foam inserts take up the currently empty space in the box, so the cards don't shift around during transport. Another nice touch.

Not a complaint, but a concern I had was that the packaging may not stand out on the store shelves. The graphics are muted and the box itself is a dark green, so it might be easy to miss.

While I love the way the box looks, from a marketing standpoint, it might be a slight hinderance to sales. A simple solution would be to add colorful printing on the shrinkwrap itself, perhaps some images from the cards, and a bold "Eaten by Zombies" logo, helping it stand out and attract more attention on the store shelf.

So that's my first impressions of the physical game components. I was very impressed with the production values. Everything is top notch.

Looking forward to playing it this weekend.

Jack

Bryon,

They were shipped mostly on Tuesday but some on Wednesday as we ran out of time on Tuesday before the post office closed. Also they went out Priority Mail for 2-3 day delivery so even if yours was shipped on Tuesday it may not get there until Friday. I'd expect it Saturday/Monday at the latest and anyone who preordered at Origins/GenCon or on our site and who lives in the USA but does NOT get it by Monday please geekmail me directly and we can follow up.
