Where did you buy / pre-order Empires? Has it shipped yet?

So I'm curious where people are buying Empires, and when these games will ship. So if you've pre ordered it from somewhere, can you post where you pre ordered it from, and post when you get your shipping notice? Or if you bought it from a FLGS or whatever, post when the games arrived in store? Some of us (heh) are still trying to figure out where and when to buy the game, and want to get it sooner rather than later. I figured by crowdsourcing this information and by maintaining a thread where people can post links to stores as soon as copies become available, we'll all be able to get Empires as fast as possible.

Maybe this is a bad idea; I've had them before...

I ordered from CoolStuffInc. I can post back when they tell me it's shipping.

I did as well. I have always been pleased with how quickly CSI ships after the expansions are released.

Plus, there's just something special about getting emails and packages from "CSI."

If CSI is where it ships first I'll order it there, but paying $20 for two day shipping really kills it for me. Ground is $8 but that's six days to where I live.

Yesterday, I visited a local board game store in Utrecht (The Netherlands), but they could not yet give me any information about when Empires arrives here, neither about the English nor the Dutch version.

After reading elsewhere on the forums that it's available on Amazon Prime, with a 1 day processing delay, I decided to order it there, taking a risk that it would ship before the weekend if I paid $8 for one day shipping. Fingers crossed!

This is what I got mailed today:

Hello again,

Looks like the manufacturer has has pushed the date back again on the item. I just got off the phone with my supplier and they still have not received their order. Just so your aware, when a manufacturer holds the day of release for an item they hold that release until all vendors can receive their product at the same time. So no one vendor gets the items before another. So with that said I will send you a message for shipping as soon as I get the product in my hands. Thanks for your patience.

Miniature Market, and no.

I ordered Empires from Amazon for a test, and I would have gotten it 5-6 days from the order if from Amazon (this was yesterday, so 4-5 now). Assuming most vendors get the thing at the same time, I assume that is how long it would take to get Empires.

For what it's worth, as of right now, my Amazon 1 day shipping order says "Arriving Friday", but is still of course awaiting shipment. It is expected to ship June 9th.

FWIW, I called CSI this morning and they said all the information they have is that it will arrive by the end of July. I canceled my preorder and ordered from Amazon.

Oh, ouch. I actually just emailed them asking the same thing before I saw this. I'll post if the answer is anything different, but I might also have to cancel there, as much as I'd like to support a F(not-so-)LGS.

I just got a notification that my package shipped and will arrive tomorrow. This is a pleasant surprise. Amazon claims the package has left the Amazon facility; Fedex just claims the shipping label has been created.

If you want Empires as soon as possible I would recommend Amazon Prime.

Well, I guess I'll not order from Miniature Market in the future. They're painfully slow. They have received my order, but there is no shipment yet. Man, this is taking awhile.

My FLGS had copies today. Am I the first non-special person on DS to have a copy?

It is a picture of Mint, I don't know what you're talking about...

My package did actually arrive at a FedEx facility this afternoon by the way, so we know Amazon actually got their copies of Empires and started sending them out. No idea why other retailers wouldn't have theirs already.

What kind of font is that!? That is the ugliest font in the history of the world. You're hard on everyone, Awaclus. I expected much better from you than that font. Man, at least use comic sans or papyrus or even copperplate for the ironic post. But that font, ugh, Awaclus, ugh. Why on earth did you pick that one!? I think this is the worst thing you've ever done. I think you could go into jail for a couple months for that font.
