Well, I had to do it. I couldn't find my copy anywhere, so i ordered a second copy of the Dead Tree Edition from Z-Man games, paying full price.

The payment has not gone through, so if someone feels the need to intervene somehow, like block the shipment because I don't deserve a copy, they can do it.

I have not gone to my FLGS since CAH was released, so I don't know whether they got it.

I'm really sorry I lost that copy. It was important for me to learn this game and I was so looking forward to playing it.

To update: Z-Man games has, according to paypal, recieved my money. I have no idea how long delivery takes, so I don;t know when or if I'll have my hands on my replacement copy.

You would be within your rights to keep the money and not send me a book, you know. Carelessness should not be rewarded....

**Michael:

You paid for a replacement copy - why wouldn't you get one? It should be leaving Monday or Tuesday (we're expecting another freaking snow storm so I don't know if I'm staying home or not - that will determine when your and other orders will go out).

Because I don't deserve one?

Seriously, why reward someone who loses what should be one of the trophies of his collection by allowing him to easily replace it? Why sell a new copy to me when there is someone else out there who is more deserving of this copy than I am?

I think I should not have even ordered that book. Much as I want it, I don't deserve it. Merit would suggest that I do not get to be part of this community any longer.

Dude, it happens.  We all lose things, and we all make mistakes.  It's all good!  ;-)

And mistakes must be punished. Paying for a book and not getting it would be a fitting punishment, so go ahead and don't ship the book. You can keep the money -- you need it. I'd only lose the book again.

Besdies, self-denial and self-punishment are good things. It's not like I'm entitled to anything anyway.

Michael, don't be so down on yourself.  I've lost a LOT more.  Like the time I lost my entire 40K army at a con back in '94.  That was much, much worse as I had about $1200 wrapped up in it.

Like Eddy said, stuff happens.  Don't fret it.

I had nothing but bad stuff happening to me all week. I personally deserve all the bad karma I get, and non-delivery would be only the tip of the iceberg.

After all, I've already been through a car wreck and the end of my convention career. Losing out on my chance to get a game is only a minor streak of bad karma.

Update: Zev sent me a note indicating he's shipped my copy. which means I'll have TWO copies of the game that I'll know where are, because before I got that note I picked up a copy at an FLGS in Aloha 9a suburb of Portland). That's how I was able to do my Lina Inverse writeup.

I'm wondering what to do with my second copy when it arrives. I can always keep it as a backup (what vanished once can vanish again), or use it as my traveling copy while I keep a copy at home, secure on my shelf, for reference.

Boy, am I embarassed by all this.

Hey, look at it like this, Michael...

You've bought *3* copies from Cindi, Zev, & Company. :]  And every sale counts, and helps insure we'll get more fine products :]

I saw a copy at my FLGS (Comic Heaven in WIlloughby, Ohio :)), but as I have a copy coming from Z-man, and I don;t have the $$ for it now...  I'm hoping that once I get my copy, I can run a couple games and convince the boys to buy that copy :]

You should cheer yourself up by buying another copy.

Some folks are "Glass Half Full" folks

Jared's lying, of course; he doesn't feed his children.


Michael, why did you buy a copy at your local shop when you had one coming in the mail? Did you honestly think Zev would just stiff you on your copy?
