I am in the US and I’ve placed two separate orders (October 22 and November 20) and so far nothing has arrived. Way back in March I placed an order for just the halflings. That order never shipped because of the pandemic. By the time I was told it could ship I just cancelled it in favor of a new order during SPIEL Digital. Then I placed another order during the start of their advent season. So far all I have received is a set of the halflings. I’ve reached out to Cundco and all I was told is that these things take time.

I was very happy to receive my Cundco order last week, including a Promo 20 tile, my very first one. Today, I was equally thrilled to get a package from Nostheide Verlag who put some of the Spielbox issues on sale, including those with very appealing Carcassonne extras. So I warmly welcome Small buildings, Wind roses and ... yes, also the two infamously famous Spiel Doch! Promo tiles (ironically, this magazine wasn´t actually discounted so they cost twice the rest, but anyway...)

Yes, but we had to solve issue, that one box has now not enought space for all tiles, meeplesed, tokens etc. So going back to two box - basic game for tiles and scoring table and box from expansion 1 for other stuff and rules (I know basic game, tower and halflings 2020 are fold).

Thinking about wooden box to made. But shops are closed due to quarantine ;-(

That's an issue I had to face a few times too... If you need some inspiration, here's the box I made:

You'll see some other boxes ideas on that thread too  ;)

So as I mentioned in my welcome post, I recently made an order for most of my missing CII unboxed expansions and some additional bits.

Of course even at ~£7 each or less things add up quick when you are buying 10 or more things.. so this slightly extravagant post Xmas purchase only happened like it did because a few stars aligned at the time; I knew I was (and still am) expecting a Basically Wooden Carcassonne storage box that is due to arrive later in January, I got confirmation of a late but welcome PPI refund from the bank, and I found that Board Game Extras had nearly all the unboxed expansions I needed.. well the need in me to achieve completionism took over and this is what the postman delivered a couple of days ago:

Festival 2
The Peasant Uprising
The Toll Keepers
Baths / Barber Surgeons
German Castles
German Cathedrals
German Monasteries
Halflings 1 and 2
Markets of Leipzig
The Fruit Bearing Trees

Winter Edition Mini: Corncircles in German
Spielbox magazine 05 2012 with Little Buildings mini expansion
Sheet of 12 blank Carcassonne original tiles

9 Wooden Wine Barrel Tokens
6 Wooden Wheat Tokens  (well should be 6, I appear to have misplaced one already  ::) )
5 Wooden Cloth Tokens  (yeah, they are not red and they are shaped like t-shirts, was most suitable thing I could see on BGE and they will certainly do for now.  On the plus side they are purple! :) )

I am curious to know if any folks living in the US have yet to receive any of their orders from SPIEL.Digital onward?

Hey DaFees, yes I got my digital Spiel 2020 package last week. Tracker number was useless in this case.

I got a large box from FedEx  (not cundco) yesterday that was originally intended for delivery on the 6th. No subsequent updates, it just turned up.  I think tracking is fairly unreliable, or updated very promptly at the moment.

Glad your box arrived safely.

Here's my package... there's a meeple for scale comparison... if you look closely for it!

Yes, it was a long wait, 2 months in Frankfurt without updates, and DHL did not give us information about it. Cundco people and I though this package was lost. Even though I already play one mini the USPS tracking system still says: The delivery status of your item has not been updated as of January 7.   ???  I hope you get your package DaFees.

Hoping that huge box does not contain ~5850  :blue-meeple:
  ;D
