Update 5/19/2014:
Shipping begins! We've begun shipping our first three hundred sets today, with more to follow shortly. Because of printing delays, the booklet is not ready so it will not be in this first round. We will be shipping it later when it's ready.
Thanks for your patience and your support!

I don't have a lot of faith in FMG after their other statements have proven untrue, but this is at least a good sign.

My concern is they do not appear to be doing it in order of buyers (I can't imagine there are many before me as I ordered Sep 2012).
And still no info shipping costs to international backers :-(

I hear you. I ordered 2 sets in July 2012.

To find out how (if?) these are being received I started a data collection thread

From the business' standpoint -- particularly a resource-challenged business -- there's no good reason to do it that way.

Sorting shipments by type/rate of shipment (e.g. all single copy orders in the US) helps them properly package and postage things. Going by date of order just creates new hassles.

An international rate would be lovely.

I will be hacked off if new US buyers get theirs before pre-ordered overseas, but I think I will have to learn to be hacked off

I know what you mean I have emailed and got a reply back from Mike spouting the whole $5 deposit and invoice later for actual shipping rate, which based on counters first and book later is bound to be stupidly high now, frankly I would be happy with a PDF to lower postage and actually get us the counters.

Also if you get them can you post photos of them.

Mine arrived today, ordered back in 2012, with a note saying the book would be mailed at a later date. I'll try to get pictures up on Monday.

Ordered in July 2012.

My counter set arrived in Eastern MO today. Looking forward to the rules/scenarios when they arrive (either printed or PDF).

If we only get a PDF out of this, I hope it is inkjet friendly because that is what I have.

I'm still waiting for FMG to reply to one of my emails I've sent, bit sad really and does colour opinions of their other products

Looks like the great Nightfall shipping of 2014 is over, and looks like no one outside of the USA got them!

Hopefully SJG will consider this unreleased in October and give international customers a priority on ordering this from W23.
