It's been a long hard road, but finally we're at the end of it! Here is a quick rundown on the status of the shipments:

Americas
Games and rewards packs have all been shipped. (Whoo!)

Europe
Games and rewards packs have all been shipped. (Whoo whoo! Also, Europe also includes Russia and South Africa.)

Asia
All games and rewards packs have been shipped directly to backers or to distributor agents (which means that it may take a smidge longer). Breakdown for the distributor agents by country: New Zealand and Australia are en route to the agents and will be shipped when they are received by our agents. Singapore and Japan have been shipped to backers via agents.

In summary, if you have not received your games and rewards packs, rest assured that they are on their way!

Finally, we at CGF have received a letter of resignation from Christopher Rao, our Director of Production. We are very sad to see him go, but it has been a pleasure to have worked with him. We wish him the absolute best as he waddles out towards the horizon. (Onward, penguin!)

Things are wrapping up around here ..

The shop in Belgium where I pre-ordered the game is still waiting on the bonus cards for their ordered games. Until then I won't receive my game.
He says he doesn't get any reaction to emails anymore. Hope this gets settled soon!

If your country is not among those listed as going to agents for distribution, then your games and rewards have been shipped to you directly.

Given that Hong Kong is a) adjacent to China by road and b) hasn't received anything yet, some sort of clarification as to when exactly said packets were mailed out would probably be helpful.

Taiwan is in a more complex situation.

After a 15month wait it is ressuring to hear that our games are "in the mail".

Even if it a slow boat from China.

However, since we have received no estimate of when we might receive our games or how/when we will receive the various KS promos, it would be incorrect to say that the end was "in sight" for some KS backers.

If CGF could give us an estimate of delivery timescale (surely it cant be far wrong now) then we might be able to truly say that the end was in sight for us too.

As Agents of SMERSH backers, we have the name of the ship the games are on and tracking details of it as it makes its way across the Atlantic.

Too much to hope for, I guess?

How about a date of departure?

That's a single large shipment. CGF is sending multiple small shipments out via standard surface freight, and bulk mail carriers don't bother telling which ship or ships your stuff ended up on.

True, but aren't they sending all the Australian stuff in a bulk shipment by sea? I suppose even then that's not gonna add up to much, is it?

*sigh*

Oh well. It'll turn up one day I suppose. I sure hope it's as good as it's supposed to be. I'd hate for this whole experience to end up as little more than a cautionary tale.

70ish copies. You imply it isn't a cautionary tale now?

I'm hoping the considerable bad is outweighed by a greater and longer-lasting good. That's the plan, anyway.

Backers and stores have been getting their orders at different times much to the dismay of backers.

Also, hopefully this means CGF can work on getting replacement parts sent out because it has been so long since I sent out my e-mail about it I had forgotten about it.

Still waiting to receive my copy here in the UK. Despite (from what I recall), they were all supposed to be mailed out more than a month ago now.

I was assured back in September (via email) that my copy of the game would be sent to my work address. No joy!
