    Happy ending here- Amazon shipped it to me this morning (yes, Sunday) via their own delivery service. And since I had complained about it on Friday they had given me a really big discount voucher so that I was able to get another copy of Civ VI which I played on wife's account until my copy arrived this morning. Seamless transition. All is well, finally!

    I cancelled my pre order from Amazon and just bought the game on Steam straight up. Lost out on the pre order stuff already, anyways.

    At least I know to never pre order a game through Amazon anymore. This is the second time this has happened to me for a collector's edition of a game on Amazon, within 6 months.

    If you wanna change something you had to go to your retailer.

    Sorry you guys had such problems. I got my boxed standard edition at 11.51 AM on the 21st. Bought it back in June with the 20% discount and got a $50 credit for opening an Amazon MasterCard account - so net cost was about $1.53 [they charged me tax]. I've been playing since it came and this is my first visit back to civ fanantics since 11.52 Friday!

    It's 1 pm here and still no game. I am not going back to Amazon, that's for sure.

    Update: My boxed copy was delivered yesterday afternoon, Monday 10/24. The FedEx guy put it on our front porch and didn't even knock or ring the bell, but that's a different rant. I'm enjoying the game but am terrible at it, ha ha.

    I won't be buying new games from Amazon any more either. First-world problem, eh?
