I just got word that a pallet of games heading to Aetherworks got crushed during freight.

Obviously most of the games are still fine, but there was about 7-10 that are probably totally squashed though (I am awaiting the pictures to see for myself). Right now my options are to hold up the entire order, or to send the games out minus the ones mentioned that are unacceptable to send to a customer.  

I have decided to send the games out - with a note to my AUS and NZ backers:

If you want to for sure be in the first wave of orders that will start going out tomorrow, comment on this update as soon as you can! Even if you dont respond, most people will be on this list. Most of the AUS/NZ folks that comment on the previous updates were automatically put here just because I knew they were keenly waiting more than most.

If you dont respond to this, you might randomly be one of the ~7-10 or so people that will have to wait until I get my surplus orders and mail them direct to you. Again, I apologize and will obviously pay for all shipping, and expedite it.

Additionally, if you find that your order is not up to snuff in any way, contact me! We will make it right!

Sidenote - Aetherworks is incredible, and has nothing to do with the freight damages. They have been open and very informative regarding the damages and helping me create a plan to get games to all of you.

      Vas happy with waiting and thanks for letting us know. Last time I had communication with a KS board game about ANZ I was told we were lucky to even get anything. How the rest of your freight comes and goes with no issue.

      I would like to get my game as soon as it can be sent. That being said I understand if it is not possible.

      Hi Patrick, right we get our surplus orders in (which arrive with the US orders), I will send the AUS shipments first thing. I will also expedite it so it should be fast.

      I'd love to be on the earlier list if possible, but understand if that doesn't work out.

      Hi, I completely understand that things happen beyond your control and I am really looking forward to receiving your game but I am patient and am happy to wait a little longer if need be, I am happy to be put down as one of the 7 to 10 to receive it at a later date... Thank you for keeping us all up to date...

      Would like to get mine sooner rather than later if possible

      Being in the first wave would be fantastic. Thanks!

      Did the container that got crushed only for AUS/NZ orders? Or were orders for other places affected?

    15. Vas Obeyesekere Creator on

      Also, to be clear - the US orders (or any other shipping lane beside AUS/NZ) were not effected by the AUS problem. Your games will all still arrive as per the timeline in the post.

      Would love to be in the first wave.

      @ US folks willing to sacrifice their order date to help your Aussie friends out - it warms my heart! But know that delaying your orders wont effect theirs in any way. I will get the surplus orders when US people get theirs, so I will send out the AUS wave from my end. Still, that was really cool of you

      Man that blows! Soorry to the few Aussie folks who are getting delayed. That bites guys! But thank you for the informative update. Bunk happens. It just totally blows.

    21. Stuart McIntyre on

      These things happen - I'm not affected as I'm not in that region but it looks like you're doing the best that could be done in the circumstances.

      Well, if US backers can take the delayed ones, you can add me to the list.

      Bad luck. Thanks for keeping us informed.

    33. Matt

      Being in the US, I assume there’s nothing I can do to help, but if delaying mine helps at all, feel free to delay it. Sorry this happened, but, unfortunately, accidents are a fact of life.

    34. Ian on

      Please and thank you

      I would love to receive mine as well in the first wave!

      Sorry, just re-read and saw this was AUS/NZ, never mind, but if the same thing happens, I'm willing to postpone my shipment.

      I'm also a US Backer and would also gladly volunteer to wait if it helps out. I'm looking forward to the game, but my gaming group has plenty to keep us busy for the coming months. It wouldn't be a big deal for us to wait a little longer than everyone else.

    39. Simon

      I would love to receive mine

    40. Joseph McKercher on

      If someone who's game was crushed wants their game urgently, I'm willing to wait for the surplus order.

      That's such sad news, mate. I'm keen as a bean to get my hands on the game. Hopefully the damage isn't as bad as first reports suggest.
