    Excellent! I should have mine within the next 6 hours. I took overnight shipping from EBgames myself.

    Post a screenshot and then we'll let you play. ;)

    Decent! Well I am about to head up to BestBuy and see if they have it in the building. I know the management there and they will release it to me if they have it.

    Silly me...I took the week off so I could learn this game. What a waste of paid time off.

    There are advantages to shipping to a business and disadvantage.

    The advantage is obvious, delivery around 9AM, the disadvatange is just as significant, its really hard to go home sick when your employer knows you just got a package and has an inkling as to what it is.

    Moderator Action: Thread stickied and post title changed.

    Brag here when we get it. Post a pic of it in your grubby little hands so we can print it out and throw darts at it. ;)

    Seriously, tho, post here when you get it.

    They might. I talked to 3 people last night. One said I could have it last night, the second said he would ask the first and call me back and the third said I could have it this morning. I am leaving in 20 minutes or so. If I have to buy a CTA visitor pass and ride around on the subway for nothing...:eek:

    Just waiting for the UPS guy to show up at my house. I'll post a pic of me holding it!

    EDIT: My wife just called... my copy of cIV arrived! With so many other people posting pics, I'm not going to, coz by the time I get home, most people who are getting it today will have it. Can't wait to see if I can actually install the darn thing on my computer! :)

    I got it! Delivered from EB games, it was waiting for me at work this morning (city college new york). I can't play it till I get home but the tech tree & spec charts are full of reading fun!

    proof: manual page 109, first word is 'Snow' (I don't have a camera at work)
