      Hi Joshua,

      I replied a few days ago in the update thread in which you posted. Here's what I can tell you:

      Hi Joshua, can you please email me your address? Send it to I think I see what happened -- when exporting address yours came out looking like this: 西青木1-16-5 #302 so the system dropped it and I never saw it. This might be why you are having issues w/ other campaigns. Send me the address and I will mail your copy straight away.

      Any chance I could get an update on my game? I live in Japan and haven't received anything yet. I'm having problems with another backed project and I want to make sure I will receive future products, as well as my current ones. Thanks!

    3. Conquistador Games Creator on February 27, 2013

      Great news Alexandre! Enjoy the game!


    4. Alexandre Rivaben on February 27, 2013

      Hello guys, I was worried about my package but I'm very happy to annouce that I received it yesterday! Cool! I will try to play it on next Saturday! Thank you!

    5. Mark Welham on February 22, 2013

      Hi, I've just realized that I've not had anything yet, not even a tracking number. Any chance of an update?

    6. Conquistador Games Creator on February 22, 2013

      Awesome! Enjoy!

      Actually, I had a surprise when I got home today: Fantasy Scientists! XD So it's all good, you don't haave to send me an extra. Thanks!

      Don't sweat over it, it's not the first time something gets lost when sent to me (though I really don't understand why, I'm in the suburb of Montréal, not in some way-out-there village). I understand these thing can happen, I'm just glad for the easy communication and the great game. :)

    9. Conquistador Games Creator on February 21, 2013

      No that's not normal...ugh.

      I will look into this and will likely just send a new pack for you.

      Sorry for the delay.

      Hello! I see here that you mailed the fantasy scientists around January 22nd and I still haven't received mine here in Canada, almost a month later. Do you know if that's normal or not? Thanks!

      My extra scientists have arrived, in excellent condition.

      Hi. I'm an international backer, and I received the game about a week ago (yay!). However, no sign of the extra scientists. Any chance you have a tracking-number for this package?

    13. Conquistador Games Creator on February 3, 2013

      Hi Alexandre,

      Your game was mailed on January 11th. The tracking # is: LJ363158153US

      It should have arrived by now or will arrive shortly. I would attempt to contact your post office as it could be held up in Customs.


    14. Alexandre Rivaben on February 1, 2013

      Hello guys, I'm an international backer. I've just received a flat envelope with only the scientists boards on it. Is that right? When should I receive the box and other components?

      Thanks Bill,
      Much appreciated. I know its a big job sendiong all the packages out and some mistakes are sure to happen.!

    16. Conquistador Games Creator on January 23, 2013

      Hi Bruce,

      I'll check the shipping orders and get you your correct package.

      The wrong bundle arrived! :(. The New Science + Road to E arrived, but I pledged for 4 New Science's. Please help!

    18. Conquistador Games Creator on January 22, 2013

      The Fantasy Scientists are being shipped this week (some went out last week).

      Craig and Tim -- glad it arrived in good order. Have fun.

      My game arrived yesterday in Australia - really nice quality, very impressed. Game itself looks great can't wait to give it a go. Thanks!

      Hi. The game just arrived in perfect condition. Thank-you.

      As an international supporter, when will the fantasy scientists be shipped?

    21. Conquistador Games Creator on January 16, 2013

      Hi Alexandre,

      Your package was delivered to the post office on January 11.

      Tracking: LJ363158153US


    22. Alexandre Rivaben on January 16, 2013


      Can I have a tracking number for my package?


      -- Alex

    23. Conquistador Games Creator on January 15, 2013

      Hi Ben,

      Looks like you replied after I gathered the survey replies so I didn't see the order. I have it in the queue now and I'll ship the game out this afternoon.


    24. Ben Sawyer on January 13, 2013

      how do I find out if my package was shipped or not?

    25. Conquistador Games Creator on January 13, 2013

      Hi David,

      What was missing? I can send replacement parts if needed.

      Had a chance to play my copy this week. Great game and tons of fun, however, my copy was missing a number of tokens. It didn't stop us from playing but it was a disappointing having to use pennies for the missing pieces.

    27. Conquistador Games Creator on January 13, 2013

      @Kevin M it looks like your expected delivery date is January 16th.


    28. Conquistador Games Creator on January 13, 2013

      Wonderful! We're thrilled everyone had fun playing it.


    29. Irfon-Kim Ahmad on January 13, 2013

      Got my copy *JUST* in time for my birthday party / games day. Played it, everyone loved it, plus EVERYONE commented on how beautiful it was and how great the quality was. Fantastic job!

    30. Matt Smallwood on January 11, 2013

      Got my copy of The New Science today. I am completely blown away by the super high quality of this game and the Age of Enlightenment. You guys rock!

    31. Conquistador Games Creator on January 10, 2013

      Hi Alex,

      US orders should all have the stretch goal scientist pack included. They are not IN the game box, but rather packed inside the USPS box.


    32. Alex Nesenjuk
      on January 10, 2013

      Bill, I received your package a number of weeks ago but haven't had a chance to open the box yet. Are the stretch goals already included within the box for US buyers or are you planning to ship them in a separate package like you are doing for the Candians?

    33. Chris Sanderson on January 9, 2013

      Thanks for the update Bill. Do you know if the retail / store pledges have all been shipped? Be handy to know so I can inform my shipping agent to keep and eye out for it :)

    34. Conquistador Games Creator on January 9, 2013

      The bundles started going out a couple of days ago -- they should start arriving shortly.

      Hooray logistics.

      What are the extra baggies in the box for? Other than that small mystery, the first play though of the game was pretty good. It would have really helped if there had been a video on how to play through the game the first time to get it started, but we figured it out. I think this will fast become a favorite at my monthly game night.

    36. Chris Sanderson on January 9, 2013

      Hi Kevin, not received anything in California here either.

      Has anyone received their "Conquistador Bundle" yet? I'm in California and haven't. Hopefully tomorrow...

      Jim Grimley on January 9, 2013

      Still nothing here, hopefully the wait will soon be over. I would assume they all have to be on there way by now.

    39. Chris Sanderson on January 8, 2013

      Hope to see mine in shortly so we can get then to the store ! :-)

    40. S.D. on January 5, 2013

      The New Science arrived in the home of the SD clan ~20 minutes ago, in perfect shape, and ready for play. The component quality is of the usual quality and the stretch goal scientists are looking fantastic. Thank you, CG, and my lady & I are looking forward to Tomorrow :-)

      My copy arrived today. Box lid split on one corner from shipping, but that was easily fixed with some clear tape. Looking forward to trying out the game.

    42. Conquistador Games Creator on January 5, 2013

      Thanks Blake. As far as questions go, our (email) door is always open so ask away.

    43. Blake Morris on January 4, 2013

      My copy arrived today and three of us played this evening. We had a few small questions, but the rules are very clear, and everyone enjoyed the game!

    44. Conquistador Games Creator on January 4, 2013

      Glad to hear they are starting to arrive; I hope everyone has fun with it -- and feel free to email me w/ any questions.


    45. Nick DiCeglie on January 4, 2013

      Got my copy today in NYC. Looks great! Can't wait to give it a try!

    46. Conquistador Games Creator on January 4, 2013

      Thanks Diane. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


    47. Diane Hinkle on January 3, 2013

      Wow. Came in today's mail. What beautiful packaging! Cannot wait to read the materials tomorrow. Well done.

      Jim Grimley on December 31, 2012

      Does it look like they will all go out on Monday? Really looking forward to both games and hopefully jumping aboard on your latest offering too:).

    49. Jeff Buckey on December 21, 2012

      Can't wait to check this out! I wish it could arrive at my house before the 28th so I could break it out at game night. I might be the first one to post a review (post shipping).

    50. Conquistador Games Creator on December 21, 2012

      So far so good -- I haven't not heard of any delays. We are still on schedule to ship games between 12/26 and 12/28.
