Y'all want to chip in and send me to Essen?

Ich spreche Deutsch and can probably bring back 3 copies...not counting mine, of course...

I didn't realize there were any historical Napoleonic sites in Essen...

They aren't handing them out at Essen. Just have demo copies for press showies.

Not like DVG....  :tickedoff:

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...

Oh, man, you and me both.

How companies let that happen (DVG!) is well past me.

They fund based on our support and then treat us as an afterthought...

Don't blame me...heh, I even posted over on BGG I totally understand if KS backers get their copies first and it takes longer for me to get mine.

Sounds like the dev screwed the pooch with that, but they've apparently been very vigilant with updating and rooting bugs out of the app.

So very weird.

Came home and there it was on my doorstep.  Nary a word from the supplier about its arrival.

TEN DEGREES DOWN BUBBLE!!

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

I like how they included a $10 bill. Nice touch.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

Nice, Cyrano!

I'm in the same boat, so to speak. Package said it shipped but no other updates, like what I get for other orders.
