I bought it, but I have to wait for Reef Encounter for it to ship. I'm not in a hurry though.

Not yet but it's near the top of my "must buy" list.

Bought from Germany.

If you're in the US and REALLY DESPERATE for Caylus, just order from Germany. Shipping takes 2 weeks.

No. Going to have to play it first. Think it might be a bit too heavy for me to add right now. If it's as good as they say, I'll be able to pick it up anytime. Guess I should read the rules...

Nope. I'm all thumb-limp. It appears that I waited a nanosecond too long. What's going on? Caylus seems to be out of stock at almost every retailer, with forecasts of next shipments maybe in January. Just crazy. It's all deja vu for me. I've already had a similar experience trying in vain to snag an XBox 360. You win some, you lose some. And anyway there'll always be something newer or better just beyond the horizon and all of this nonsense won't matter much in the long run, right?

I can't get the additional emoticons screen to show up, but thumb's up here! I just got my shipping confirmation from Boards and Bits with Caylus nestled in among many other goodies.

I had other stuff on pre-order, too, but asked them to ship what they had now and charge me shipping on the other stuff later -- I CAN'T wait.

At least not yet. 2 hours is really pushing the limits of my group. I did manage to get Power Grid introduced and that's gone over well but they play soooooo slooooowly that it takes upwards of 3 hours for a game and on one occasion we had a person in a 6 person game stand up and say something like, "Wow! look at the time. I'll need to go after the next round." soblue

What!! You can't leave in the middle of a game!!! arg!

Note that the number of people who own Caylus is not necessarily equal to the number of people who bought Caylus...

No, I suggested to my board games club that I buy this (and several other games), and they could purchase them from me if they liked them. But I haven't made the order yet.

They do with all my orders at least

thumbsup here

It is actually due to arrive today, along with Ra, Wings of War, Mystery of the Abbey, and Saint Petersburg. Now I just have to decide if I am going to pull Caylus and have my wife wrap the rest or be patient...

I don't know how the rest of you can be patient enough to wait for games that won't ship till next year... I want Caylus for playing during the Christmas vacation!

Matthew-

You could open them all and make photo copies of the instructions, then have your wife wrap the game boxes up for Christmas. You should be well-read by the holidays and ready to play.

Nope. Too expensive for me at the moment. Maybe in a few months.
