Anyone received their copy yet? I tried to post this in another thread that got derailed a bit.

I'm looking at other US residents to see if anyone has this yet or has picked up their copy from the local store. Just king of seeing where the thing is in the process.

Super excited to get my hands on this one.

If the two recent large threads are any indication then they're probably being loaded into a giant cannon to be shot in the general direction of backers. I wouldn't expect much more organization than that. Who knows.

Ordered mine from Cool Stuff Inc. in Florida. I assume they'll send it out as soon as they get it in, so I guess they don't have it yet.

I have a Preorder with them, as well. I think the last time I saw a list of dates, they said next week was when the games would go to distributors, so I assume that's when they'll get them and ship them to us.

I also think we're supposed to get the little geek expansion with it, but I haven't seen any confirmation of that in a while.

The time tables always mention backers so I assume that's the KS ones. I don't think the non-KS orders are even being factored in yet.

My local store (Game Kastle in Santa Clara, CA) called me around lunch time to let me know my copy is ready for pickup so I'll have mine in hand in a couple hours. Unfortunately, I'm immediately leaving for a camping trip so I won't be able to crack it open just yet.

Annoyingly I chose to have mine delivered to my house and now I see my game store has their copies in Los Angeles. I thought itd be easier and faster to get it delivered to my front door. Sigh.

Yeah, this would be an "epic fail" on their part. Didn't we pay extra for home delivery? It's been so long that I've forgotten... soblue

The $5 extra for home delivery was because a store shipment can include copies for several backers in the area, as well as copies for the retailer themselves. There was no suggestion that the home shipments would happen before the store shipments. An "epic fail" would be if a store with no backers got their copies before the home delivery backers had received their's.

If store copies are there for the general population, I find it interesting I have yet to hear from CSI.

Perhaps the mailman did not want to carry it through the rain. No joy today. I doubt it will get delivered on a Sunday do I probably won't check tomorrow.

In case you were wondering, the mailman did not make a special trip to make a Sunday delivery. There is always tomorrow.

The store copies are *supposed to* be for KS supporters who are having the game delivered to a participating FLGS. That is to say, these are not people who ordered from the store itself, but people who ordered the game and are picking their copies up at a store.

Of course, the implication is that copies of the game for non-KS purchasers were bundled in with those boxes, so non-KS supporters will probably end up walking into stores and buying copies of the GtR before people (like you and I) who paid for home delivery receive our copies.

Yes, we receive our KS extras, and that's nice, and yes, it's "only" another week (or whatever it ends up being), and yes it's just another drop in the bucket of poor management this project has seen.

When I told the folks in my game group a few weeks ago I thought GtR was shipping I received two laughs of, "I'll believe it when I see it", one blank stare (from a person who didn't remember ordering it and, I believe, doesn't want to pony up the dough any more) and a sort of noncommittal, "that's nice" from the fourth person who, in my opinion, would probably rather the game had never shipped at all, as I fronted the money for our five-pack and now they're going to end up paying me and taking a copy home with them.

So it goes.

Hehe. I have a friend that KS the Black Box, and I also laugh when we talk about it! Though I'm not a backer, I have interest on it, since I will take the expasion cards for the old version - old version that he sold to me and that I keep playing and reminding him: "Hey, I played GtR today!". He just sighs.

Regards,

I had originally asked for it to be shipped to my FLGS in Vancouver, BC. Then I moved to the Interior of BC, so I asked them to send it to me at home.

Naturally, I've just this past week signed the lease to open my own FLGS, and could have had it shipped there.

Regardless, no sign of it. ;-)
