Just got word from Yann!

Shipments have all been set aside, and shipping reopens next week!

Even without Covid 19 I always expect weeks rather than days.


Unfortuantely the "Amazon effect" means that the pereception these days is that if an item doesn't arrive the same week something must have gone horribly wrong. This isn't helped by the online games sellers, who, although they are also small, only have one job to do, ship stock that is currently in their warehouse.


I always try to remember my middle age*, when it was still, "Please allow 28 days for delivery" 🙂


*Not my youth, I don't really remember my youth anymore! 😉

I had no doubt your order would arrive at some point, glad to hear it will start soon.

Exactly. Not every small game company can afford warehouses all over the place to ensure rapid delivery. Even Amazon is not shipping as quickly right now, but it is bad for a company with only one or two shipping locations.


Even Amazon can struggle sometimes. Their amazing distribution system has a downside. I ordered 10 packs of camo-print card sleevez for sleeving a game and I basically got 1 pack from 10 different warehouses. Took over two weeks from the first arriving to the last.
