So not good news... sorry
We went back and forth with the printer over just a few minor edits. We are all good on that front, no major reprintings or starting over!
After that, we asked for their estimated ship date (we were excepted the end of December as it is usually 4 weeks from this point) They said the soonest it will ship from them is the end of January, they said just due to the shear quantity of products needed to print and package that they will need an extra month. They did not tell us this until today, we figured if there were going to be delays due to quantity that they would have told us in the beginning.
Anyways, if the games leave China in late January they will take about a 2-3 weeks to get to our warehouse and about 4-6 weeks to get to the EU (it just takes longer to go from China to Europe, we don't understand why). Assuming there needs to be some wiggle room for customs delays and shipping issues, we are looking at Domestic orders going out in late February/ early March and International orders solidly in the March area.
We are so sorry, and I will keep you updated as we know more. For the next 4 weeks updates will be few as they are just printing everything. We will get the final copy proofs in about 4 weeks and I will let you know.
P.s. Backerkit will charge and close first thing in the morning, giving a few extra hours for those who I sent a final reminder email to fill out their surveys.
