My copy is most likely arriving this Monday. I was excited that it would come in today because the game arrived at my friend's place (I actually placed an order before him on the same day) where I ended up placing the stickers on the villagers. I did not get a chance to play yet because they were about 7 of us.

I'm from Elk Grove. You ever play at "Great Escape Games?" I just ordered the game too.

Came this afternoon, played this evening, won in a very close game with ... I can't recall...50ish points? I think second and third were tied at like 47.

What's typical scores? I suppose it's highly dependent on how quickly people advance time, huh?

I am order number #2610 and I ordered mine on the 24th.
Did you guys get a tracking number so you knew when you game was on the way? I haven't heard anything since I ordered and was just wondering.

I am very excited to receive it and give it a try

Same here. I think I'm #2486, and haven't heard anything. I guess they're just working on it... but when they said "in warehouse!" I figured I'd have it within 10 days.

FYI.

My order number was 2565 and I just received my shipping confirmation this morning. No estimate for delivery, just that it was in the hands of the USPS.

Crossing my fingers shows up with minimal damage..

Mine shipped in a medium flat-rate box with no packing material other than some peanuts on the ends. No side protection at all, so naturally I sustained significant damage. I expect that sort of incautious packing in a math trade, but I never dreamed a professional game company would resort to it.

Just a warning if anyone else is considering grabbing a copy - you may wish to wait until they move to Amazon shipping.

From what I've heard, TMG has a reputation for doing right by their customers, so I'm not casting aspersions. I've sent them a polite e-mail and will patiently await a response; I'm sure they have their hands full right now.

I'm in the same boat, box is crushed and board is permanently warped. Looks like water damage to me; will be sending an email shortly.

Was still playable though, cool game!

I am not a fan of how Amazon ships games in general. A slightly larger than necessary box with two or three air pillows (sometimes still containing air) are usually how it ships.

When I received my Village, it was shipped the same way, but arrived in perfect condition.

Yeah, on second thought, you're right. Amazon's packing is no better. They've obviously done the math and determined that it's cheaper to have a built-in system for returns than to pay for materials and labor time of quality packing.

I guess I was momentarily stunned to see that sort of ruthless calculation applied by folks in the friendly game industry. Wait...ruthless calculation....games....ah, now I get it.

Oh, Boards & Bits, you spoil me so. Why do I ever stray?

Second play tonight with only 2p (one of the players last night). Much quicker game but still 50 points to 47. These are the typical scores, I assume?

Mine is suppose to arrive on 8/4, Saturday. Can't Wait!!! It seems like stickering all the meeples takes a long time. Have anyone try just writing on it with a permanent marker?

Finally my copy has arrived today. Stickering wasn't too bad, only around 20 minutes. Played my first game and waiting to play another. In case you're wondering, it's order # 2611.

This is old news, but I just wanted to follow up and say that TMG took very good care of me with regards to my damaged copy of Village. I was a bit wary of their new business/shipping model; but I would now have confidence ordering from them again.

Figured I'd pop in and say that my copy finally arrived. I was somehow sent the wrong tracking number (and the game didn't ship), but an e-mail to TMG cleared things up and they got my game out right away.

I've been staring at the box for days now and I'm eager to finally try it out tonight!
