Production is wrapping up
Esteemed backers of IIGD. I want to let you know that I spoke with the printer yesterday and the production of the game is wrapping up and the games should be on a boat over from China some time this week.
I'll be sending out the rest of the surveys very soon, so look for those in your email. If there have been any address changes make sure to note that in the survey comments. Please keep in mind that if you choose the option to have me sign your game(s) it may delay your shipment by a couple more weeks as the games are being delivered to Game Salute for fulfillment. I wouldn't blame you at all for forgoing that option and I will always be happy to sign at a later time at a con or if you want to send me the rulebook to sign at a later date.
Also, since I will be at Gencon there should (see below for why I say "should") be an opportunity for Gencon pickup if you desire. I would especially enjoy the opportunity to meet and thank you personally if you will be there.
I know the wait has probably been frustrating, but I can promise you it has been moreso for me. Unfortunately the communication from the printer that I (mistakenly) chose has been sub par (to put it kindly). I firmly believe the production of the game will be great quality, so don't fret that. However, for future games we will NOT be using the same printer. I cannot accept the lack of communication I have experienced. I'm not trying to displace the blame for the delays and really wasn't going to mention the problems until after the games were delivered, but I feel like as backers you have a right to know what has been going on. Ultimately, I chose the printer*** and that is on me.
The overwhelming majority of you have been nothing but supportive and understanding and I truly thank you for that. I REALLY appreciate your patience.
*** I know the question "Who is the printer?" is going to come, and promise I will answer that (and fill in some details), once the games are in hand. If you are producing a game and are concerned, send me a message with your prospective printers and I will warn you if my printer is in your list (the communication will be great while they are trying to win your business).
