I got my copies of the game this afternoon ... And have been working hard going through the packs of cards for some of my peeps! I've got two (2) Game Boxes that I've been working on since this afternoon, trying to make certain everything is there and there are no errors... And so far, so good.

But TBH, I have not inventoried all the storylines and to ensure that they are all correct too... That is something that I plan to do either TONIGHT or TOMORROW during the day.

The only problem SO FAR has been ONE (1) Box which was crushed a bit on the bottom of the box and inside too (cracked). But like I told Stan, I will use the prototype box since it is IDENTICAL to the damaged Game Box without the obvious damage...

Everything fits nicely into that BOX too... So far, everything else looks good too! I'm about 50% done sorting the 3rd Box... Yeah it takes a long time to sort the cards as per my OWN METHOD which is far better than wondering what goes where?!

I plan to post some Update Information concerning TradeWorlds tonight... It's got to do with Card Sleeves and a picture of MY Tactician Box. How to get it all to fit inside WITH SLEEVES TOO.

Cheers all...

very big, very cool

I got my copy of TradeWorlds as well. It's a massive box full of stuff, and I hope to have enough time soon to sort and explore it. It's very slick. When you get it sleeved I'd love to see how you fit it all inside the box!

That reminds me

When do you think my copy might arrive in the Netherlands?

True: it's very "slick"!

Indeed it has a massive amount of content. 524 Cards for the Vanguard, Tactician and Bravado Pledge Tiers which is synonymous with the Grand-Daddy of all Deck-Buiding Games: Dominion!

Indeed @Winston the game is very "clever" and I will share more pictures and an update when I get my box filled with sleeves. Right now, my one attempt to sleeve ONE (1) Section of cards: "Acolyte Core" + Acolyte Premium Role Cards... Is successful in that the cards are still within the box and are "sleeved".

But never the less, I will post some pictures when I do get the remainder of my sleeves and manage to sleeve the entire box. Cheers!

Explanation for the delay

Hello @Ramon, the reason your copy is taking more time is that Stan over at OLG has yet to get his VAT Tax Number. He needs this number so that the UK Warehouse can start shipping games... Without that number there is no way to associate the business selling (or importing) games in the UK and EU.

We're doing our darnest ... But sometimes things take time and we don't always get the RESULTS we are wanting. For example, the EORI Number which is used for the UK has been obtained nearly at the end of the FIRST "registration". However the VAT Tax Number, we haven't heard any news.

But this time, when Stan did the registration, he got a REFERENCE Number. Something that he can use to contact UK GOV. and ask them what is happening. Last time he did NOT get this number ... And so we feel much more confident that the number will be issued in 30 days or less.

After the number is obtained, we can start to fulfill UK & EU Orders.

And I'm sorry I did not get involved sooner ... but

Both Stan and I were under the impression it could take a few months. However last Monday (November 14th), I was discussing the VAT Tax issue and I told Stan that I would look into the matter to see what the NORMAL process is.

After googling many sites about "UK VAT Tax", most sites if not almost all I think two (2) said 3 to 6 weeks ... But ALL the others said 30 days. Furthermore the was the question on HOW the VAT Tax Number was going to be sent. That was clear because there were ONLY two (2) options:

1. a certificate is send to your home of RESIDENCE by MAIL.

2. a certificate is issued on-line via the UK.GOV web portal.

And lastly the last bit of research that I did on the UK.GOV website was to figure out WHAT "was the VAT Tax Number" and that too was unanimous: it was a "GB + Nine Numbers" that is unique for each business importing goods in the UK.

Armed with all of that ... Stan knew exactly where to go to register (I provided him the links on the GOV.UK website) and I asked him to search his e-mail for a Government Issued ID. He searched and FOUND IT! So his previous attempt was not for nothing, he got his ID (and Password) and his EORI Number.

The only thing missing was the darn VAT Tax Number... And Stan has the feeling that he did not complete the requested form correctly. It was an honest mistake ... But this 2nd time around he knew what was required and also had the help of the UK Warehouse to ensure he input ALL the right INFORMATION required by the VAT Registration.

The problem with all of this ... Is maybe I should have looked into the issue in September... It was middle of November and people in the UK & EU want their games. Five (5) days have gone by ... It says AT MOST "30 DAYS", so it could happen sooner.

Again we are both sorry that it is taking more time... But this is typical of what the campaign had in terms of delays: we were ALWAYS waiting on something to be done or completed. But we've kept pushing FORWARDS and a LOT of people have gotten their games ALREADY!

We have NOT forgotten the UK & EU Backers... We're doing everything as right as possible and hope for news AS SOON AS IT IS AVAILABLE...

In any event... You see that we are not malicious or bent on "causing delays", it just seems like everything takes more time than we had anticipated.

Kind regards!
