What's in the mail?

Haha, I don't always have a game on order, but I did sell some games before Black Friday so I could buy some new ones, and I did purchase a couple more games for Christmas.  So currently on order but not delivered for me are #Acquire (yes, a very oldie but I think might be a goodie for my family), #Can't Stop (same with this one), #Truffle Shuffle, #Jixia Academy, and #PARKS.  Oh yeah, and there might be one coming from a secret Santa at work...

What's been ordered but not delivered for you (excluding Kickstarter, that's a whole other ballgame)?

I just received #The Hygge Game so now I am anxiously awaiting #Obsession.  One might say I'm obsessed with staring at the mailbox.

This joke will never wear out its welcome

Don't have any non-kickstarters I am waiting on but I know my partner has a couple of mystery board games for me for Christmas (I only know this as I have been instructed not to buy anything for myself without checking with her first) so I am looking forward to that!

That's awesome, Bob! You'll have to let us know what it is. Does she happen to have a link to like a BGG or BGA wishlist or would this just be totally random games?

Well, she usually hears about games that I play or am excited about and has her own running list. So who knows! It's always exciting when there's no way of knowing 😄

Yes indeed! Looking forward to finding out what mine got me for my birthday tomorrow. :)

Ah yes, let us know!

Planning on making a post about it tomorrow night! has some skin in the game as he claims he knows what it is based on hints I've been given.

What are the hints?

Premium User6 months ago

Just don't ruin the surprise if you know it lol.

So...she started out by telling me this game was on some article she read that was one of those "if you like ____, then you'll love this!" kind of things. She cannot remember what the blank was (of course...). Anyways, she said shes unsure if I'll like it because it seems like it's a "family game." I asked her what the weight on BGG was listed as and she told me just over 3. It's from 2017, was nominated for awards but didn't win any (so she says), and is a tile placement/worker placement game. I literally have no idea.

#Jixia Academy is fun! My wife didn't enjoy it so I gave my copy to a friend, but I would gladly play that any time!

I'm waiting on my #Dune: Imperium pre-order to arrive at my FLGS. I also ordered #Orléans on Black Friday and I'm waiting on that one. I'll actually count one Kickstarter as it's started shipping to backers, I just haven't gotten mine yet: #Dale of Merchants all in pledge!

Agreed, I was surprisingly impressed with #Jixia Academy!

Can't wait to hear how #Dune: Imperium plays! Do you know when it is due?

Premium User6 months ago

Nope :/

They started shipping to people who pre-ordered directly from the publisher, but I don't think they've said how soon game stores will receive their copies.

Gotcha, hopefully it's not too long a wait!

I've currently got a copy of #Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated on the way. Excited to play through that with my kids.

#Concordia Venus is coming my way. And I might still have surprises coming from designers.

On order, but not delivered, my situation is a little bit weird, I live out of the US, so I typically order games to my US address, and then pick them up when I visit. So, I also tend to keep games on hold as long as I can. Not because I mind games waiting at my house in the US, but because it allows me to get over free shipping threshholds really easily.  So, not counting outstanding kickstarters.... I have, on hold or preorder:

#Gaia Project

#Pax Emancipation

#The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth

#Imperial Struggle

#Underwater Cities

#Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island

#Cloudspire and, I also have premium health chips coming for this one.

Have heard of, but haven't played any of those.  I was thinking #Underwater Cities would be a good next purchase, though.

That's a whole lot of games!! Doubling the collection?

6 months ago

haha not quite I already have 400+ but luckily I've sold 14 games in the past two weeks using their free shipping labels.

Premium User6 months ago

400?!? Goodness that is a lot! At least you sell some to help offset lol. Where do you sell them? I have had some trouble selling some of mine 

Premium User6 months ago

Doesn't help me thinking you aren't a robot when you randomly give me good information I'm looking for ;P

My husband has sent things to Noble Knight a couple of times. With the latest batch he got me some games for my birthday, including #Hansa

Cool! I might just do a BGG Auction one of these days. My biggest issue I think would be with shipping. I never have boxes or packing material when I need it.
