OK, I ordered from Tanga last Friday. A week later it says the same thing; "Shipment is being prepared." It is just for one item, what the packing it in?

I saved about 5-7 dollars, so I guess I can wait. But it makes me hesitant to use them again.

Tanga does not ship. They stock nothing.

They aggregate orders, collate, charge and send them to a warehouse.

That receiver then has to do whatever shipping process they do in addition to whatever payment arrangement they have.

Having extra steps adds extra days.

I ordered something from them on July 31st. Order still shows "shipment is being prepared". shake

Don't order something from Tanga that you need immediately.

Tanga is definitely NOT the place to order if you're impatient and need the game NOW. Since I'm the impatient type and need games now, it's worth spending the extra 2-5 bucks elsewhere and get games weeks sooner.

I placed an order for Tien Ze Que on Tanga on July 30. It's been 25 days and it still has not shipped. I've written to Tanga twice now, they said they were going to contact the sender.

Dammit. Beat me by one day.

In all seriousness, I've never had Tanga not come through on an order. They typically always make things right.

I've bought many things from them over the years but this latest order blew me away.

I got in on the Risk Legacy deal and it was on my porch within a weeksurprise

NOTE: This is the exception but it was awesome!
