Pulled the trigger on a couple of the End of the World RPG books at $15/ea. Should ease our group into the RPG world smoothly, since character generation starts with "your character in the game is YOU".


I'm debating doing this. But character generation is kinda drawing me off. I usually play RPGs to be someone that's not me.

Could some of my stateside brethren assist me? A friend of mine has very kindly let me use his APO address so I'm not paying more for shipping to the UK than the cost of the actual games. When I use the zip code 09421-0012 it gets stuck in a loop looking for it. However when I use just 09421 it's fine. Does anyone know if it will still make it if it has the rest of the address?

Thanks.

Pete

I'm pretty sure the last 4 digits of the zip code merely designate a delivery route rather than the physical location. As such, they make mail processing more efficient when used, but they aren't required at all.

There's no need for the '-0012' if you have the rest of the address and zip code

Has anyone placed their order from the first day received tracking notification? Still haven't seen anything since then.

I placed an order at 1pm PST on the first day and I received notice the next day about the games being shipped from Miniature Market. I will be receiving the games on Tuesday. I placed another order on day 2 in the afternoon and have not received any word about that order yet.

I ordered from them in the last 2 holiday sales and never received a tracking number or notification at all. The stuff was delivered to me, but the timing might depend on how far away you are from their warehouse (which I heard is in IL).

I ordered the first day and got a tracking yesterday, but it had already been shipped a day or two before I got the shipping information.

And I placed my order the first day, but didn't receive tracking info until this morning (due to arrive Wed).

The prices are great but the shipping price is horrible.

Though, uh... it didn't stop me from ordering twelve (!!!) games... blush

I think I ordered 2-3 days after it started and haven’t received a shipment confirmation but my UPS account shows it’s on its way. So much better than last year, I received my stuff 2 months almost to the day after placing my order.

I ordered on Thursday and just received my package. The Asmodee site still says pending tho. As an added bonus upon opening the box I found that the Days of the Fox expansions I ordered was actually the Next Wave edition instaead of the older one. It's like Christmas in November!!!!

Thank you so much for sharing this here.... I was simultaneously stressing that I hadn't received any shipment notification while others had even though I'd made an order early the first day and scratching my head over a UPS notification I'd gotten from MM... didn't occur to me to put the two together, heh! So reading your comment here was much appreciated.

Why are they shipping from MM?

I was thinking at the time of my order maybe I should just make a purchase from MM... I ordered Earth Reborn which between shipping costs and my having some MM points to spend it would've been cheaper if I just added some items from my wishlist to get free shipping there so it's especially odd to me right now that my order ends up coming from Miniature Market -so weird!

Yeah, it would have been nice to add my MM held orders and/or to take advantage of the $5.99 FedEx Smart shipping. Stuff was pretty cheap; they probably needed the shipping charges to make it work.

Wow, they are shipping fast this year. I already got my order. Just showed up. I'm in shock!


How long did you wait? My order from Nov 9 is still listed as "Processing" on their website. I wouldn't expect it to arrive this fast but at least noting that my items were boxed by now would be expected.

Uh oh. And so it begins... again.
Mine hasn't shipped yet either and still says pending.

Hmmm.

How much does the Conan box weigh?

I got a tracking number from Miniature Market for a 26lb box. I only ordered 5 games from the sale - and one got canceled. But I also have a 3 game customer hold I just told MM to ship right before the sale happened...

Is it possible they put all 7 in one box?

Placed an order first day. Other than the email receipt, no ship notice just yet.

Also no info found on the Holiday site itself, says I've never placed an order.

Basically, same as last year so far. Let's see if they can beat the 29 day processing + ship time that they had last year.

Order received November 8.
Order shipped confirmation notice November 10 (from Asmodee NA, not MM).
UPS Tracking says delivery should be Tuesday 11/14.

Similar situation, my account shows no order history. I emailed Asmodee NA and received the following response, FYI.

Hello!

You will be emailed each step of the way when your order ships from our fulfillment facilities. If your account can not see the order then you may not be logged in or may have submitted the order when logged out (in which case we are unable to merge your information).

Thanks!

Asmodee North America


Thank god I have 200 unplayed games to tide me over...

That's exactly what they told me last year as well. This year I made sure to login so I could keep track. I don't doubt that the site (which worked WAYYYY better this year) knocked me out before check out though and I just didn't notice.

I'm not worried. It'll just be a surprise when it eventually shows up.

200 might have been a bit of an exaggeration...but it's a big number. The glare of shrinkwrap is blinding. blush

I also have not received any kind of shipping notification. The only thing I received as the original e-mail order confirmation.

However, I on UPS, as of last week it was showing I have a large package coming tomorrow from MM. Much quicker shipping than others reported about last year, but you'd think at least they could e-mail a shipping confirmation?
