Finally!!!

The wait is over! I shipped the first 60 copies of Adventure II today! Another batch of 60 or so will go out tomorrow, with the remainder being shipped on Friday! This means many of you will be able to enjoy the game this weekend. All the packages are being shipped either via Priority Mail or Airmail. The packages are going out in the order they were received, so the earlier you got your order in, sooner you'll get it your copy.

Here's a picture I took right before I headed to the post office not too long ago:

Can't wait to hear what everyone things of the game (and the packaging!) once they receive it!!

I am number 79 so hopefully mine will arrive on Saturday. Albert thanks for all of the hard work. I don't know who is happier - everyone getting a copy of Adventure II or you. I am sure that you will be thrilled once you have all of these shipped out.

That's a minor understatement! :) :) :)

I see you noticed in your order that they are numbered. Just one of the special touches for this release of the game. Here's a picture to whet everyone's appetite, but I sure as heck am not going to divulge what's in the box!!

Oh, I know, trust me! The rates already went up once since Adventure II first went on sale and the upcoming rate increases are much worse..
