Maybe you missed it in the six other games delivered this week :P

Uh...no.

Two others. One should be here tomorrow, the other hasn't shipped yet. I'm a little concerned about that - it's my first order from NWS and it's taking a while, but he's at least answering my questions on FB. For what I'm saving compared to Amazon, it's a good deal.

Chris at NWS is a good guy and will take care of you. No worries there.

His prices on Compass Games titles are insane compared to Amazon and Compass Games. :)

Got my copy today.  One card was heavily damaged but apart from that, everything is present and in good shape.  Sad that I'm relieved that only one card was damaged.  Really wish I'd got this from a local store instead.

That really sucks, SDR.

My store is a city away from me and said they hoped they'd be getting it by today. Which means I should hopefully get it by the end of the week. If if if. And hopefully my churned-about copy isn't damaged that much either.

This should make a GREAT unboxing video.

Replacement card is on the way.  Let’s see how it fares.

Maybe they will pack in it the same size box the game came in and then they can toss it around for 8000 miles from Poland... :P

I also just realized that they sent me the wrong type of mat.  I got the thin neoprene one instead of the leather one.

Ecos?  Like hippies?  If you check closely, you can just make out the faded henna tattoos, the scent of patchouli oil, and hacky-sack bruises.

So you can tell us about it at Origins?  :whistle:

Nope. Moving into a new house. Money and time are both extremely tight once that happens.

Thank goodness for surveys and Amazon gift cards.  :D
