Re-packing is going well

We're quite sure that the only update anyone wants from us these days is a tracking number. We can finally say that the only thing between now and then is Sunday. If FedEx or USPS accepted drops on Sunday, we definitely would be there bright and early.

We took a break from printing and sticking labels to take some pictures of our progress and the fort that happened to appear behind me. You may notice some heavy taping on these boxes. When we checked for more randomly packed games, we discovered that some critical pieces were missing from all games. Also, two of the expansion packs, one of which was the Monstrous pack that almost everyone was kind enough to support, were short several cards. All of that has been corrected; the games we already had packed have been re-packed, and we're going to be pushing packages out all week.

During the time spent re-packing, we also got ourselves a postage scale. Though it should have been obvious, it is saving us a lot of time and we feel pretty fancy using it.

We are the first to admit that all these delays are somewhere between embarrassing and unacceptable. We could not be more sorry and though I'm sure you would rather just have the game, all these delays have translated into some valuable logistics lessons for us.

For those of you who receive tracking numbers on Monday and throughout the week, we would sure appreciate you throwing up a comment on the board here to let others know that they are in fact coming out. We can absolutely understand the doubt and the frustration and we can't tell you how much we appreciate your support and constructive commentary throughout this whole process.

      Has anyone gotten their games? I haven't gotten any shipping info and it's been two weeks!

      Thanks for the update. I wish I knew how soon my game will be mailed. It's for my adult son and he's patient because he loves games like this. . .PS I didn't order anything extra for my game. Any chance I may get a USPS tracking number soon? I'm heading to Portland at the end of the month and can deliver his Christmas gift in person. I know. I know. I'm a friend of Karl's and he's in China, right? sigh and good luck!

      Awesome and thanks for the update.
      Oh, I would happily have kicked in a little extra to get you some pants. ;-)

      ...and the inevitable question about EU-friendly shipping. How do you do this?

      Thanks for going through this, guys. Frankly tired of KS games missing pieces and having to go through everything ourselves, appreciate the additional check, it is worth the delay.

      Thank you for the update and explanation. I can accept honest delays, but, imho, a little less radio silence goes a long way. The extra manual hard work you’ve had to put in is appreciated.
