Got a couple games in the queue at Deep Thought Games, but numbers haven't changed in months.

Sent an email to them, but no response.

Anyone have word? Did something happen?

I'm not sure. After a brief spurt of activity, the queue has stopped moving again, it seems.

I heard from John a few weeks back that my order was ready to be produced despite a number over #100, a bit of back and forth over other things being available, and then last week he was at a Con, but planned to send the invoice when he was back.

edit: And there it is! Woo!

I just got my invoice last night for an order placed June 25 2011, so it looks like the current wait time is 15 months, which is up a bit from my last order. Overall this isn't bad as it gives me time to learn and play my 3 new titles before the next batch I am about to oder will be ready.

I just got an invoice as well, for two orders placed about 18 months ago. Things are happening.

Things seem to be moving along at Deep Thought.

My turn to worry.

I made an order 8 month ago, and it seems I'm stuck at the 436th place since I made it.

Once I got below 400, then I got back up to 438th.

Is it a bug, is it normal, is it the release of a new game freezing the list ?

I'm at 16 months since order, currently #173. Hasn't moved since mid-November or so.

I'm at 11.5 months into an order and stuck at #357. Wondering how this process works.

Something from my last order a few years ago which should give some insight:

I reviewed and laud you on your charting prowess. Indeed, it was this post that convinced me to place my order figuring it would be less than a year. Alas, I've move about 110 spaces in a year and, at this rate, it will be 2016 before I get my order. There's something wrong going on.

Chattanooga (the largest 18xx gathering in the states) is this week/end. The DTG crew is building 1000 games (might be an exageration...) for those attending. I imagine things will start moving again after this weekend.

My oldest order was ordered 9/8/11, now at 169 on the queue.

Good things come to those who wait.

Mine as well. If I had to guess, this will get worse before it gets better. Since John's gracious enough to allow people to tweak orders until the very last minute, even doubling them in size, my guess is that people stuff their orders now rather than wait another 18 months. Frankly, it's what I plan to do.

Good thing I'm not dying to get my order immediately, I suppose.

Mine has gone down two in the last 5 months. [Sigh].

Saving up now!

Anyone received an update on their order? I've been tracking mine and here's the trendline ...



Pretty good correlation, but very disappointing time to order completion, certainly not the 7 to 11 months noted on the web site.

You don't need to make it to position 1. There are many orders waiting for a game to be published at the front of the queue.
