- We approved the proofs last week, so the printing company should be hard at work putting it all together, as we speak.
- Those five supporter who went in on the custom card sleeves should be getting a PayPal invoice from us soon (if not already). Fingers crossed on Kalan getting those done before we get ours done so we can mail them at the same time. :)
- We've lined up two different companies to receive copies of the game for safety testing. (Why two companies? Testing companies are reluctant to give price quotes without seeing the game, so sending it to two companies helps ensure we will get the job done at a more reasonable price. It ain't cheap!)
- We've matted up the original artwork and they look GOOD. They are classy raven black mats complete with study backing boards and quality clear bags to keep them nice during shipping.
- We've ordered 5"x7" prints of the commissioned art. When matted, they will by 8"x10". (We went with 5"x7" prints because I was concerned about enlarging the original images too much.)
- We've mocked up the supporter magnets and they are in the queue after Matt gets done cranking out the legend buttons.
A couple other related shout-outs,
- Our good friend, Ta-Te, has already launched his second funding campaign on Kickstarter. If you like Mahjong, then you will probably like The Battle of Red Cliffs. (It is currently one of the top three staff picks under board games!)
- One of your fellow supporters had some nice things to say about this campaign on BoardGameGeek.com. As a small press company, we live and die on word-of-mouth so we tip our hats in Andrew's direction for taking the time to do that!
