Not yet, shall we start taking bets/running a book on likely months? /this side/other side of Christmas, likelihood of further problems?

As per the last update should be on its way to NZ now.... finally.

"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."

Has whoever received these yet? (guess not)

I find it very strange that the updates are going up on BGG and not on the Kickstarter.

Does anyone know who the local agent is? I kind of want to change my postal address, but I'm wary about contacting CGF in case that delays things even more

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

I still don't understand why people aren't dealing with people/companies who have a Pixel Park account?

I'm the other punter who ordered 5 copies for myself and others. shake

I also ended up being the 'local agent'. I've received a box of promo stuff, but nothing else so far.

PM any change of address to me. I'll be moving house soon myself, probably just after Xmas, but luckily I gave CGR my PO Box address.

Pixelpark weren't able to secure any copies. The publisher will sell to the general customer first, stores second, and distributors third. We were going to get some but shied away given the response. As it worked out, none of us ended up getting any copies! (C'est la vie!)

Ah I thought companies supplied distributors first.

As you were.

Most publishers do, and retailers and the general public aren't able to buy direct, but this one is different. As they allow the general public to buy direct, the publisher prioritises these customers because of course they pay the highest price.

Keep in mind that its a kickstart project which normally distributed direct to backers anyway.... sure CGF have taken an unusual (and painful) approach to global distribution, but I'm not sure its all about profit - they did have the lowest international shipping rate of a kickstart game I've seen.

I didn't know it was a KS project. I'm only passing on what Tim at Pixelpark has told me.

I've since received a bunch of game boxes now, which were packed into two larger outer boxes. The names on the packages per game seem to match the names on the packages per promo set, which I received separately; a good start!

Alex has already collected his bundle in person. Apart from my bundle, I've got the following for others:

4 to Auckland - George, Kash, Paul and Perry
5 to North Island - Ashley, Chris, Dean, Mark and Toby
2 to South Island - Chris and Matthew

For the ones in Auckland, ideally PM me for my details to collect the packages for yourselves, assuming that's convenient.

As for the others, I'll need to repackage them to add the promos, and then send them on their way. Might have to wait until the weekend as I have little free time at the moment. Hang in there!

Yup, the impossible has occurred! I actually have five copies of Glory to Rome in my possession. Thanks, Sean, for dealing with the rather unexciting task of distribution.

OMG I've been watching this train wreck of a Kickstarter, mainly because I'm in Sean's bundle (don't forget to tell me how much I owe you!). This is another one of the many screw ups, and now people have to pay more to get their games for national delivery. shake

Actually, CGF have said they'll reimburse me any shipping costs.

PS. Check your email.

Sending them both to me should save you a few cents. We all game in the same group when Toby's in town. thumbsup

Good on you, by the way - given the prolonged process of this all, you have a very unenviable job!

If Toby could confirm he's happy with that, then sure thing. I trust you David, but just need to make it formal to cover my arse.
