Have a question?
My shipping box was trashed and falling apart. Was glad to see the game was not damaged.
Got it in French Polynesia. Everything is perfect. Wooden tokens match the tiles.
Hi Richard, this is precisely why we clearly state the tracking issue in the campaign page, and also why we explain that delivery services operate in mysterious ways, with some backers getting their package a lot earlier than others, even within the same city. We have seen weeks of variance in some cases. Please make sure you have read the latest backer update.
Not having a tracking number is driving me mad. Someone else in Orlando got their shipment and I have no way of knowing where mine even is.
If you have any issues with your reward, please read the latest backer update. Then, if you still have issues, as mentioned before, in multiple comments and all backer updates, please send us a message via the KS system.
Could you send me the tracking code?
Box received yesterday. Bologna Italy. Not yet opened
anyone received game in CA, USA? I have not received my copy :(.. maybe my number too big, 1742, still waiting.
I have not received my copy.
Package well received 15 minutes ago. minor dents on box (mostly caused by delivery), wooden tokens are good and accounted for, 3 map tiles and neferhotep's punchboard wasnt all the way through but nothing a simple cutter wont fix. other components are good, the standees though.... since we have to kinda force the piece together it left a mark. so switching to a plastic standee.
Overall. Very good production, would love to back more games from Ludicreations. will be playing it soon.
I received my copy today (Vancouver, BC, Canada). Everything looks good except two wooden fire tokens whose tips have little chips (not worth getting replacements, though). Maybe these need to be packed in a separate bag, or the design needs to be adjusted so that this doesn't happen.
As mentioned before, in multiple comments and all backer updates, please send us a message via the KS system.
I received the game last week. but missing 10 lecterns wooden token while others match the number of cardboard. and 1 stone tablet is broken.
:( have not received my copy in Singapore yet... 5 days since a backer reported he got his.
still have to wait a few weeks if the game is returned and resent :(
/sad face everyone is getting their games and I'm just sitting here waiting for the mailman. (actually I'm beginning to wonder if he delivered to the wrong address, it's happened before :/)
Ya'll play a round for me because I can't yet!
Got my game here in Portugal. Had some issues caused by boards not being punched all the way thru. Got some minor damaged tiles backs while trying to take'em off, but not really a big issue. Didn't like the quality of the "mushy" cardboard used. Too soft and it almost feels like it's kinda damp... weird.
As mentioned before, in multiple comments and all backer updates, please send us a message via the KS system. Also, no need to send to *all* of our contacts (email, FB, etc.) - just a simple message via KS is enough.
@Scott Send them a PM
Well opened the box, and one of the room tiles was out of the cardboard and damaged. Anyone else have issues with damaged components?
Game arrived in Maryland USA Today!
Just arrived in Calgary
Received the game on the 3rd in perfect condition. The larger tiles do have some issues when punching them out (be a little cautious).
I actually got the package a few hours after I posted my comment about still waiting for it, so it arrived on December 27. Great condition, thanks!
We only managed to play it once so far, but it seemed like a lot of fun. I am sure we are doing something wrong because I played the Roman agent and managed to score waaaay more points than the other players (more points than the rest of them combined)
Looking forward to playing again though!
Received here in Colorado in PERFECT condition!! Thanks again LudiCreations!!!
Got my copy in Singapore yesterday. Thank you!
--- If a Peril is triggered, after flipping the Peril face up, does it stay on the board, or does it get discarded? Also, if a room that has a Peril is burnt, does the Peril go into the discard pile, or is it removed from the game?
In both cases the Peril token is returned to you, and the card is discarded, to be joined with the cards you discard in the course of your next turn.
Just got mine in Melbourne, Australia :)
I do have a few questions about the Perils though: If a Peril is triggered, after flipping the Peril face up, does it stay on the board, or does it get discarded? Also, if a room that has a Peril is burnt, does the Peril go into the discard pile, or is it removed from the game?
Please send us a message via the KS messaging system if you have any issues with your reward. As we state at the bottom of every backer update, this is the only way we can track and resolve your issue.
Received the game today (Midwest USA). Can't wait to dig into it. As an FYI, there was some minor damage to the box. I haven't seen too many comments here about it, but just wanted to let you know.
Yup, these look correct. We will be posting more info, and a graphic, in the next backer update. At the moment, deliveries are still ongoing, so we want as many people to have their games before we post something.
I am missing a few wooden pieces (the chests) - I sent a PM on this to the creator.
Is this the correct count for all pieces? Reading through hundreds of comments to figure out what should be included came up with this:
4 colored player hourglasses
20 stone tablets
170 total wooden pieces
Just got mine in FL. Everything looks great!
Just received my copy in California. Have not unboxed yet to check components, but hopefully this brings hope to other west coast USA backers - they are coming!
Still nothing in Orlando, FL.
OK, the game play video helped clear me up on the game set up. I concentrated too much on the light beam and not the orientation of the lighthouse itself.
Sorry - the one that looks Spartan - the Royal Guard. I effectively used the slotted skill against Octavia, but I did not get the opportunity to effectively make use of any reactions.
--- As far as game play, I do not completely understand the set up instructions and why the pieces have to be facing the same direction, as the room tiles are all generic.
Look on the back - they are not. They are different, so that you get a different shape of the library, every game.
--- I played the spartan character, and it is also odd that one of his slotted abilities is to move out all the lecturns, while one of his reaction cards give points for all lecturns left IN the room.
Correct. He means to save them. The ability to move the lecterns gives you a chance to move them to safety (say, away from Octavia), while the other one gives you glory for keeping them safe. The combo should be rather obvious...
Also, he is not Spartan.
--- My main question is how does rooms burning in the last round work? Do players get 'killed' multiple times triggering the effects each time including all players on the final tile burning or do the character leave the library before the last 4 tiles burn which only then effects end game scoring?
Check out page 10 of the rules. There is a big bad red callout box that says:
A Hero may not resolve
the effect of their Destiny
Response during the last
round of the game.
I received this at least a few days ago and played once. I had no significant tearing on the pieces. The player pieces are odd and the size of the furniture pieces are making telling them apart difficult (I did not get the wood ones).

First play through completed. Really enjoyed it. The standees are a little wobbly but it's no biggie for me.

Still have not received my copy in Maryland, USA
--- Seriously, who thought these were a practical design? Would 4 plastic holders shot the budget? Or even meeples of some type with stickers? Just about anything could have been better.
Although the tone is a little sharp, you are correct, these could have been better. Unfortunately the design of the base was changed according to the advice of the manufacturer. We should have insisted on our original design.
Or, we should have gone with plastic holders. We did not because our general dislike of plastic, but we should have gone for it anyway.
What we do in our games is put them in the middle of a room. If this is not satisfactory, please send us a direct message via KS.
We played Alexandria the other day for the first time. We all liked it.
Only one complaint, and we were unanimous on it...THE PLAYER MARKERS ARE HORRIBLY DESIGNED!

Hate to be so critical, but between all the games I've played, these player markers seem to be more of an afterthought, than a planned out part of the game.
Does anyone in México already have your copy? I dont.
Almost everything punched out fine; one of my standees tore at the head , I guess I can fix that. Wood pieces matches cardboard pieces. Also, I found some leftover 80mmX80mm sleeves and it fit the room tiles perfectly (just a wee bit tricky to fit it).
Can’t wait to play it. Thanks LudiCreations for a great looking game.
Just got back home after being away in sunny California for a week, and deluxe was waiting at the door, woohoo. In New Jersey USA, currently at 10 degrees F - darn cold. But, I started a fire and I am one VERY CAREFULLY punching the pieces. So far no tears worth mentioning. I will soon check the wooden pieces . . . .
It arrived here in Toronto yesterday. Unboxed it and I am looking forward to playing, maybe New Year's Eve.
Matthew, no. Glue should not and is not necessary to play the game. It sounds like you have a defect. In this case the correct course of action is not glueing and complaining. It is to contact us, as we ask at the bottom of every update. So we can fix this for you.
I have to also add my voice to the displeasure in the cardboard components. Paper peeling away from the board, boards not punched all the way thru. Several tiles and components need to have the paper glued onto the boards before first play. I know this is only a quality issue that won't affect gameplay, but it's a bit of a bummer after backing. Nothing that can't be fixed with a bit of glue. Hope others have better luck. Still can't wait to play, time to dig into the instructions.
Arrived Iowa, US. Looks good, time to punch some cardboard and get er to the table.
@Vu Tran Hoang: another Californian here, but no game yet.
