According to the shipping folks who I've been harassing daily, the LA dockworkers strike is having all sorts of ripple effects (even though Suburbia is to come to the Port of Oakland).

Ugh.. I was supposed to have this sent to a friend who's in the US at the moment to bring it back for me. Hopefully this all clears up soon...

So much of the cargo is being rerouted up north and causing delays? That does suck, but I couldn't imagine the delay being too, too long. It would probably be much worse if the shipment was expected in Long Beach.

And I assume these are all the copies headed to the States, so it's not like there's an East Coast boat somewhere for us impatient types?

Thank you for the update. The US really needs a reputable manufacturer of games so we don't have to constantly import our good times...

Just got an email update from Toni...

"We are preparing orders for shipping soon. Suburbia has arrived in our local port and we're just waiting for delivery to our office."

Well I'm guessing it arrived? Gosh darn I want it so bad!

Strike appears to be over. Man, those clerks are well compensated! Let's hope they work doubly hard to earn that compensation and get our games to us.

Any updates on when the game will be available to those who pre-ordered directly, and for the rest of us who pre-ordered through OLGS's? Also, any chance the english-language version spiel promo will be made available through the BGG store?

Thanks.

Very possibly.

I received this notification via email last night:

This message was sent to you at the request of ALLIANCE GAME DISTRIBUTORS to notify you that the electronic shipment information below has been transmitted to UPS. The physical package(s) may or may not have actually been tendered to UPS for shipment. To verify the actual transit status of your shipment, click on the tracking link below or contact ALLIANCE GAME DISTRIBUTORS directly.

Important Delivery Information

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scheduled Delivery: 11-December-2012


The originating location is completely wrong, according to the package tracker, but Suburbia is the only undelivered game I have at this point.

Suburbia is the ONLY game I have on pre-order at this point. (For maybe the first time in five years...) I have none anywhere else, nor any other games from this publisher.

I'm a bit surprised (and disappointed) that no one else has posted they've received a similar notice.

Any updates? This is holding up an order of mine at boardsandbits, and I'd really love to have it arrive by Xmas. Starting to get too close for comfort...

FWIW, Miniature Market told me that there is still no word on the expected arrival date of Suburbia. I substituted a different game on my preorder so that I receive the games prior to Xmas.

I heard a few years ago that Ludofact (a major German manufacturer) wants to open a plant here in the U.S., but I haven't heard anything since.

This particular case is even more frustrating since I live in San Francisco and they were planned to be imported through Oakland. Of course I know it's necessary, but it seems so silly to have my game go from my city, across the entire country and then backtrack the entire length of the country again to get to its final destination.

I probably could have watched from my office window and seen the ship with our games sail into the SF Bay!

Mine turned out to be spray paint from Army Painter! I ordered from them in September or so, and they did not send any shipment notice, let alone one that said something was en route from "Alliance Game Distributors".

Apologies for getting everyone's curiosity going, but I figured when no one else got a notice, it wasn't Suburbia.

It would be nice to hear any update at all from Toulouse at this point.
