Looks like a big box - not as big as the Ogre box though, I'll warrant!

Heavens, no.

Let's not be mad here!

Cyrano  How many hours until we see the U-boat on the virtual table top?  :nerd:

It would seem these devs have taken a dim view of TTS implementations of their game.

Or, perhaps more correctly, have indicated they're working on their own video game version of U-Boot.

I suggested four legs to turn it into a coffee table, but that'll do just fine.

After having ordered my copy back in March, I finally received a shipping notification just now that my copy of U-Boot is on its way.

Brant, I'll do a short unboxing vid of it. It still says "by May 10" so no idea how soon it will be here.

Man, I'm gonna be pissed if you get your before I get my copy..... :tickedoff:
They were not supposed to sell in NA until all had received their KS copies...

And thanks for doing the unboxing saves me from doing it...

I got an email from Phalanx this morning saying that they still hadn't shipped out Canadian orders yet but that they should arrive in Canada and get shipped by the end of next week.  Not at all pleased with the way they've bungled KS shipping.

I can't complain compared to what you Canadians are dealing with. Strangely enough,  even with regular orders that ship via USPS, I get notifications through Amazon when they're at certain points along the delivery pipeline. With this game, I have no notification other than "it shipped May 3."

At least you got an email.... I've heard nothing....

Anyone else still have this outstanding for delivery?

My copy says it'll be delivered today by 8pm, but I'm having my doubts. I've not received any notifications other than 'shipped' on May 3.

Barth, I imagine you still have some time, right? That sucks. :(

Here's hoping we all get it sooner rather than later.

Two of my buddies here in Maine got their copies earlier this week.
