This time of year always promises to be among the busiest for for the
Board game industry.
With massive buzz surrounding the newest releases from Essen and other
conventions, the news doesn't stop. BoardGameGeek.com's BGG.con was
also a rousing success at their new enlarged convention location.
Couple this, with everyone's individual plans for a family get-togethers during their fall vacations, and you have the perfect storm for
temporal warp speed!
Look at... that its almost December. Keep a calendar close by or you'll
miss the next month too.
We hope that everyone is enjoying their copy of Exile Sun and that all
orders have found their way home. If you've have had a chance to get in some play time, please stop by the BGG page and rate the game, let us know what you think in the forums, or ask any questions. Also feel free to send me a KS message if any kickstarter issues are still pending.
I hope the rest of your year isn't too crazy, and may your gaming adventure continue!
Just got the official word from Game Salute that all Kickstarter orders have shipped. See the Image below for your shipping estimate and customer service information.
We are so excited to get your feed back and comments on Exile Sun. Remember to post images of your copies to BoardGameGeek.com and ask any game or rules related questions in the forums there. We'll be stalking the pages looking for your feedback so don't hesitate to ask.
I must first apologize for my apparent delay in posting news regarding the shipping status of the Exile Sun freight container in late September. It's somewhat ironically coincidental that my long planned trip out of any and all cell phone reception would fall on one of the most anxious periods in our campaign thus far.
But without further delay I'm happy to confirm that the freight container successfully has passed through customs and was received by the fine folks at Game Salute. By this time, all the addresses have been tallied, package weights calculated, postage and processing fees paid and Exile Sun has entered the shipping queue at the Game Salute Featured Fulfillment warehouse.
I can't personally speak for how many other projects are headed out their shipping doors ahead of us, nor for how long it will take for the packages to be assembled and sent out once we reach the top of that queue, but I can say that our project is on the very edge of completion. Our wait is almost over!
Once the games have been sent out you will notified of the expected delivery date through the Kickstarter updates system.
Now you know all that I do. I know this project has seen some delays, and I'm very appreciative of all your patience. In the way of usual board game publication, this process is never quite so open to public attention and scrutiny. I hope that the transparency of this project, with its challenges and successes included has allowed you to experience almost first hand the challenges and excitement of molding this game from beginning to end, and I hope it adds to your enjoyment of the game.
