Games left the Factory ... Locking Down Mailing Addresses

Posted by Keith Matejka (Creator)

Hey team,

Another three weeks has passed.  Here's your update!

PRODUCTION

Good news! All copies of Monsters & Minions completed manufacturing before the Chinese New Year. Games are on the water. Whew!

Details of the different lanes are below, but the core take-away, is games should start arriving of people's doorsteps in the next 4-6 weeks. 

After these shipments make it to their destinations, they still need to make it through local customs, be received at the proper fulfillment warehouses, inventoried, and internal teams will finalize the fulfillment schedules for each region. 

- US/CANADA/ROW - Shipment scheduled to arrive in Florida March 14th after passing through the Panama Canal. US and Canadian orders will be split out, and Canadian orders will be transported north. All orders not covered by the regions below will ship out of this region.

- UK/EU - Shipment scheduled to arrive in Southampton, UK March 11th. Orders will be split as needed per EU region before fulfilling.

- AU/NZ - Shipment scheduled to arrive in Sydney Feb 24th.

- ASIA - These will be picked up at the manufacturer as soon as workers return after CNY.

LOCKING DOWN ADDRESSES

So, it's getting to that time. If you've moved or just want to double check your address, please do do NOW on backerkit.  I'll be pushing the button to lock down addresses this evening. Once addresses are locked and the final addresses are sent to the fulfillment house, it'll be unlikely they can be updated before shipping out, especially in the AU/NZ regions as it's looking like they'll be getting their copies first.

If you don't have a link to your survey handy, you can get it through THIS LINK. Otherwise if you send me a PM, I can press a button to have backerkit send you a link.

Random picture of me with Matt from Panda Game Manufacturing at the Con of the North last weekend. Matt worked very hard to make sure we got these games out of the factory before Chinese New Year.  Woot!

      @Kris - they landed and are going through customs. We’re likely to still have a couple weeks before they land on peoples doorsteps in the us and Canada.

      Did they land in Florida on the 14th as expected? Is there any way to track where they are after that? I'm in Indianapolis, and leaving for a week on Tuesday...

      @Ian - The UK one is "CMA CGM ANTOINE DE ST EXUPERY" I just checked it. It's currently in the Red Sea.
      @Justin - You're all set.
      @Vadim - Yep, they will come together.

      Just updated my address in Backerkit. Is that all I need to do?

      I'm guessing the UK/EU shipment is on the CMA CGM RIGOLETTO? Only other possibility is the NYK ORPHEUS but that looks less likely.

      @Vadim: Base and Exp should come at the same time, thats what i was told since i also pledaged base game and expantion.

      I pledged to get both the expansion and base game in one shipment. I’m safe to assume that the base game is also on its way to the different distribution partners?

      Yay! Any chance of vessel names? I love to track progress on marine tracking sites.

      To be clear, the "button to lock down addresses", I meant to send 48 hour lockdown notices. Sorry for any confusion.
