I gave up on my FLGS and ordered from Amazon. It'll be here tomorrow. Too bad cause I would rather support my game store but I need to Dominion while the Dominioning is good.

How? I ordered and I have to wait until the 20th.

edit: Never mind then. It is arriving Thursday.
I actually had previously ordered from Amazon after my first LGS attempt failed. But, Amazon didn't even ship it after 3 days, so we cancelled because my game store said they'd have it again. And then they didn't.

This won't make anyone feel better. I have Empires but haven't played yet because everyone I play Dominion with has moved away.

Almost everyone I play with is moving away by September. I'll be in your shoes soon. Just, with the way things are going, I won't have Empires. Yeah...

My FLGS send out an email yesterday saying that "The much anticipated Dominion Empires has finally arrived!". I got my copy less than 30 minutes later. I haven't had an opportunity to play it yet, though.

I got Empires yesterday! I got out the set, and I set up a new game. Imagine my surprise when I pulled out the Base Cards, that all of my Silver and Gold were missing! As it turned out, I had a friend over from another state who brought Dominion, and he somehow took both my Gold and Silver while keeping his when he went back to wherever he lived, so I cannot play Empires. Like, FML!

I just ordered a new pack of Base Cards, but I should be getting back my Silver and Gold via mail eventually. Either way, kind of pissed off about it.

Ugh, that's terrible. Way more than my wait. Just curious, don't you have a backup from the base game or Intrigue?

My order from Miniature Market has been shipped finally. Should get it by next Friday.

Dude, that's just... I mean as far as first-world problems go, that's like level 10 awful.  I would be raging were I in your shoes.

Yeah, just set up boards where you need to build an engine that doesn't want any Silver. Problem Solved.

Or like, proxy Silver with Duchess, Gold with Mandarin, and improvise further if more people attempt to gain more than 10 of each because that isn't very common.

Proxying Treasure cards with Action cards doesn't seem convenient, I'd go for Royal Seal and Cache instead. It's also not like you were going to buy either if they appeared as Kingdom cards.

My game shop finally got Empires today. Other than a slightly wrinkled insert, everything was great. The new tokens are particularly fantastic. I won't be using the insert for much longer anyway. I have all my cards in three boxes using Ultra Pro 9-card sleeves.

I won't be able to play with it until either Sunday, Tuesday, or Friday, but I greatly look forward to that time.

I ordered my copy from Miniature Market. Since last weekend, my order had the status of "Pending Release".  Tuesday I called them to ask what that meant. They had not yet received their copies. So it meant they would release it for shipment after they got their copies some time this week. On Wednesday or Thursday, they finally received their copies.  The status has now been changed to shipped.  It's only a 5 hour drive between St. Louis and Lexington, but I didn't receive it today. Hopefully I will get it by Monday.

Mine shipped out yesterday. I got a shipping notice and tracking number from FedEx in the evening.

While I can't play the physical game yet, I did get in a game with my dad via Tabletop Simulator (forgive me, please.) I won 93-86. Those Landmarks are incredible. I gained 26 points from Museum, lost 12 from Wolf Den, and bought a Curse for 8 VP from Defiled Shrine. Never really got to explore the split piles, though. We only really went for Encampment/Plunder, and often drew Encampment without any Gold in hand. By the time we got down to Plunder, we either never had enough money, or had too much and had to go for Province or Colony. Gathering is also a fantastically fun mechanic.

I've only played one game, and it wasn't with the physical game, but I think this will be my favorite expansion yet. Thank goodness my FLGS finally got it.

Salt the Earth is AMAZING.

"Hmm, I have and 2 Buys...  I could buy a Province...  or, since I'm ahead in points, I'll just trash two of them from the Supply, leaving only 1 Province left, and making it basically impossible for anyone else to get enough points to win.  :D"

I have a feeling this might be the most powerful card in the set. Well that and Donate.
