    When does this Princess of Mars arrive then. Can't she get through customs either?

    So easy here. My wife will send her and her minions to oblivion right after landing. I won't have a chance to confront her personally...eh...

    If the Martian Princess leads the invasion they will never enter our home if my wife is around!

    Still no sign of green flashes in Akron, and Brown just went past.

    No messages, no knocks on the door, no shadows on the curb . . . likely too hot here in the AZ for Martians with our triple digit temps. Thoughts of courage and bravery for our brothers and sisters under attack where they have arrived!

    My buddies Rick and Jim and Ray have each received their shipments either yesterday or today, so the cylinders (even if they are disguised as boxes) are starting to fall with more regularity.... to the Martian Invasion!!

    What I suspected - they haven’t been able to send out notice for whatever reason (or just don’t want to commit to the effort from their end). And, shock of shocks, aren’t going to bother to tell us about it. Sigh.

    Same thing happened with my U-Boot Kickstarter.
    Ares was involved with the fulfillment and it just showed up.
    Was hoping it might arrive this week so I would have it on the weekend.
    It will probably (hopefully) show up on Monday.

    Just as long as it arrives ...

    Driving home late this afternoon I saw a UPS truck heading off my road. My hope was dashed as there was nothing on my deck. Maybe tomorrow?

    I've not received any notice but when it arrives there will be joy in Maine. Till then I have more than enough to keep me busy.

    Received mine here in Dayton, Ohio today. No notice, just a knock on the door this morning and a box of goodies were left.


    Here's to them what are like us. Damn few and they're all dead.

    Martians landed here in Detroit today. Got the invasion box, but not sure if I ordered more extras or not. So not sure if I should be expecting a second wave or not with more walkers in it. Either way happy to get it.

    It is good to hear that they are finally arriving in the U.S.A..

    They claim to have sent out a second batch of notification (why it hasn’t been four/fivebatches should be telling us something). They claim that all (US) may be in the mail by Monday. The race is now on - will they take the entire month to get my copy to me, or will it actually go over that and arrive in August? Over two weeks and they haven’t managed to get them all in the mail. Words fail me. At least they are consistent in their incompetence.

    I'll be happy as long as it arrives by August. I have scheduled a T&T game for Council of Five Nations in September. Was supposed to run one there last year, glad I didn't submit that game!

    I have a preorder Peter so hope we get them by next month so I can learn the game from a master gamemaster.

    Yea! Just got a message from FedEx! Incoming parcel! Yea! Due here next Thursday! But upon closer examination it is my part of a shared T & T kickstarter. The order was recieved and parted out back east, and shipped to the AZ well before my prime order arrives! Will it get here before my first order? Love chaos theory! Embrace the horror! There will be Martians here one way or another . . . come Thursday . . .

    The Martians landed in New Jersey two days ago. No warning, no knock on my door ... I practically tripped over the box on my front porch.

    Downloaded the rules as Dave suggested. I also saw a YOUTUBE video about the game so I will keep reading but I usually learn while playing rather then reading but I will study the rules to be familiar with them.

    From what I see those receiving their prizes are the KS boxes. Lucky people.

    If you are interested I am supposed to receive two sets with KS starter boxes, l have a silver cylinder awaiting conversion for my personal use, so a set of boxes may be available pending actual arrivals . . .

    No warning from Ares or UPS. Just a mysterious knock on the door and no one there...

    70% mailed as of today. Maybe. Hey, we waited all this time already, why rush?

    I just received an e-mail at 6:30pm today that my order is being shipped. The only problem with this is I already received my order last Thursday with no notice.

    I sincerely doubt it. Apparently they still have at least 30% more to put in the mail. At the rate they are going, that’s all this week to get the rest out. That pretty much means some won’t get it until after the end of the month.

    Called shot! Babe Ruth, move over! Ares confirms all this week to finish shipping. And the trouble is, they previously said it would be done yesterday, so figure if they are now saying Friday, that it will actually take even longer (since when have their time estimates been anything except optimistic?).

    Sigh....

    Marvin: Where’s the Earth-transporting Kaboom?

    Uncle Martin: Two pieces of good news, your Mightyness! One, we got the Pu-38 space modulator from the Earth creature!

    Marvin: Oh joy! And the second?

    Uncle Martin: Rabbit Stew is on the menu!

    Apparently, Ares has backtracked and decided that they could get that last 30% all done...today. The bad news? So much for the called shot.

    But it’s purpose worked...!

    The same thing happened to ME!

    Got my box (which was certainly big enough to have caused the crater you read about in H. G. Wells) but heard nothing until this late e-mail informing me they were shipping it out. Sort of like my cell phone service!
