Carl read that the first two scenarios in Gloomhaven were very tough, so since we're still learning we decided to play it at Level 0 instead of level 1, and it was still a TPK. And took over three hours (not counting setup). I'm not sure if we're doing something wrong (I just watched a good chunk of a let's-play and apparently not) or just playing too conservatively in the early game.
Gonna set up some of the electronic tools that help streamline/track things.
Just wasn't happy with the treat-box-based advent calendar so I busted out the poor neglected Cameo and made a sleek little box that fits in a small Priority Mail box for shipping. Plushie dragons approve.
(Five colors of dice calendars will land in https://silverseams.etsy.com/ tomorrow, the dragons are already there, and the cutting files to make your own calendar boxes are free on the blog at https://silverseams.com/ )
Dice Advent calendar!
This is the green one; the other five colorways (https://cf.mastohost.com/v1/AUTH_91eb37814936490c95da7b85993cc2ff/mastodonart/media_attachments/files/004/212/676/original/19aa347a3e3476fb.jpeg) will go in the Etsy shop tomorrowish.
A total of thirty-eight dice and four li'l dice bags in 24 little treat boxes. A few little embroidered (OF COURSE) surprises in there too, though I'll take a picture of all the contents for them as don't mind spoiling the surprise (like if you're buying it for someone else).
Decide to try the tracking number at Newgistics directly (it's USPS last mile) and the delivery estimate there is the 19th-21st. Not sure whether that's when they expect to deliver it to USPS (after which it goes Priority, I think) or when it's supposed to arrive here, but certainly that should be in plenty of time.
Okay now "Your item departed a shipping partner facility at 8:38 pm on November 14, 2019 in CAROL STREAM, IL 60188. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date."
It's gone from NY to IL; I live in NJ. 🤷
This probably means it's going to their California warehouse along with all the other orders, to be individually packaged and then mailed *back* across the country.
Still, pretty sure that means it arrives before Dec 1.
Wait, "Your item was picked up by a shipping partner at 2:36 am on November 10, 2019 in JAMAICA, NY 11434" so... it's in the United States already? I figured it would be on a boat.
Although... I'm still slightly suspecting that's just the mailing label for after it gets through customs, and doesn't necessarily *actually* mean my item is in Pitney Bowes' possession.
