Hey team,

I'm a couple days late on my 3-week update. Please forgive me. I've been at GAMA tradeshow in Reno NV showing retailers how awesome Roll Player is.

Anyway, things are moving along nicely!  

PRODUCTION

Here's the breakout per lane - 

- US/CANADA/ROW - The games arrived at port a couple days ago, on schedule. They have passed through customs and are making their way to Quartermaster where fulfillment will begin after they are received, inventoried, and setup for mailing. The Canadian copies will be split out and sent north of the border so they can be mailed from within the country making sure backers aren't hit with VAT. After the games are at their fulfillment destinations and sorted, I should get a schedule as to when games will begin to go out, though I suspect it will be within the next 2-3 weeks.

All orders not covered by the regions below will ship out with the US copies.  

- UK/EU - The games have arrived at port and should be at Gamesquest for fulfillment. I have an outstanding question to the folks at Gamesquest for a shipment schedule. I will comment below with details as I receive them. I know there's some concern with Gamesquest as they have had a couple rough projects in the last few months. I'm optimistic they will do a good job for us, and that they are past the pain of a few very complicated projects. Relatively speaking, Roll Player is a simple project, as there aren't a ton of different SKU's to mix and match compared to a game with lots of optional mini's buys. But, we'll just have to wait and see. I'll push for as much info as I can, and find ways to push for delivery ASAP. 

- AU/NZ - I've seen people posting on social media that they have begin to receive their copies. The rest of the world is jealous, but I'm happy they are being delivered. If you haven't received yours yet, give it another week or two. I don't know if they all went out yet or not, so yours is likely soon to be on the way.

- ASIA - These have been picked up and were prepped for shipping yesterday. These will be heading your way in the next week.  

MISSING PARTS

I handle all missing/damaged part replacements for my games. If you open your game and find something missing or damaged, let me know. Panda has a very low defect rate, but it does happen sometimes. Send me a message at keith@thunderworksgames.com and I'll make sure you get it replaced ASAP.

So, that's the latest. Hopefully by the next update the vast majority of people will have their games.

      It's nearly two weeks since GQ let me know I would have 7th Continent withing 2-4 days. They still haven't given it to the mail service.

      This is the third time exactly the same problem has happened with KS games I've backed and which have been fulfilled by GQ.

      I am not impressed by them.

      I'm currently waiting for 3 games that should be with GQ, but none of them is on it's way. But The 7th Continent is currently handled by GQ too. Seems other projects have been put on hold.

      So we are looking at an early to mid April for US? Correct? My wife doesn't love all my games, but she has been asking to play this one for ages, she keeps forgetting we only played it on Tabletopia, haha.

      @Robert - I'd love clarity as well. The expansion should not be for sale at retail yet. Backers first.

      @Robert, @JiveP: Including Expansion or only the core game?

      @JiveP the game was released 2016, so why shouldn´t it be available at retail?

      Any news yet? I see the game is available at retail in BE.

      Not happy at all about this shipping company.

    9. Charles Koontz on

      Will we be getting tracking info for the package or will it be shipped to us without? There have been a few packages stolen recently and I’d rather be home expecting it or arrange for someone to grab it for me soon as it’s there.

      Are there any news for Europe?

      Could be worse. Could have been Happyshops *shudder*

      Gamesquest. :(

    13. Stavros Tsiakalos on

      I got lucky with Rise To Nobility and got it really fast. And just received Supervillain: The Galaxy Is Mine right on time through GamesQuest. Hoping the luck holds :)

    14. Cordovan on

      Finger crossed that we have more luck with this KS-Project with the fulfillmentcenter called Gamesquest. Look at the "rise-to-nobility"-Project - FFG will sent the missing games directly or through another fulfillmentcenter at their own costs! I hope really that this will not be the case here!

      Excited about the game .... Gamesquest not so :-(
      Hopefully they manage to not mess up this time and use decent packaging material (for once not a damaged game please)

    16. Chris Hahn on

      Will we be getting tracking info once the games ship?

    17. Stavros Tsiakalos on

      They had issues with Maximum Apocalypse as well, which I backed, with people not receiving the playmats that they said delayed the game being shipped out, but which then got send separately after all :P

      I hope you are right about Gamesquest's difficulties, since I know they had issues with delivering One Deck Dungeon which was a smaller number of SKUs (four at most, I think, compared to CMON), and there were issues with them having told the creator that all items were shipped when that was not true (items post-dated past the date they were said to have shipped, some by a week or more). It's just a really unfortunate situation, particularly because they provide such a valuable service.

      Just as a side note, it's refreshing when people make rest of world a big priority for a popular game even when it's a smaller publisher. I'm in the US, and recently did not back a campaign because they were US only for no good reason they could give. I am excited to hear AUS backers are already getting their copies!

    19. Stavros Tsiakalos on

      Everyone can go through a rough period, so fingers crossed Gamesquest have managed to sort their recent issues out. I have mostly had good experience with them up to recently when things got wonky.
      Looking forward to receiving the game.

      OMG!!! It's Gamesquest again. No hop to get the game in a reasonable timeframe.
      They have been a letdown in all recent projects...

      I had forgotten that this was being fulfilled in Europe by GamesQuest...:(

      I await the inevitable update/comment that EU shipments have been put back! Everything GamesQuest handle right now is delayed by weeks...awful company, that is simply unable to handle the workload they have taken on...

      Oh Yes! Great news... except for the part about GameQuest, that´s frightening. Fingers crossed. : )

      Gamesquest is not good at packing packages. It's either to little protection or none at all.
