Local Pickup #1 (Guadalajara)

Posted by La Caravana Gamelab (Creator)


Since our last update we have received some e-mails regarding issues on shipping (Missing tracking, replacements, and other type of problems). We are doing our best keeping a record of everything to inform VFI (shipping issues) or Eastar (Manufacture issues). 

We really want you all to get the game before Christmas, but because of ourselves being swamped with preparations for the end of the year, we might have to solve some until January. We are really sorry for any inconveniences and grateful for your comprehension and patience. Remember that we do not intend to let you down.

Missing tracking info: This ended up being the most popular issue. We kindly request to send all further e-mails to office@vfi.asia BUT some parcels have arrived before the backers got the tracking. This has been something popular in other projects recently so it might be an overload of parcels.

Parcels status not moving: This is the second most popular issue, our recommendation is to just wait. Other backers have informed that their packages are on hold some days and then it finally moves. We believe this is something beyond our hands, so as long as your package doesn't stay there for more than 3 weeks, it should be in the "normal" threshold.

Rat Miniatures: Remember that these will arrive later next year since they are still under production. Our manufacturer informed us that they decided to change the mold so the miniature could come out in 1 piece rather than 2. This way, it is more resistant to falling down of the table and no assembly or glue is needed.

 Packages arriving correctly: This is always GREAT to know. It fills our hearts with joy to read you receive, like and enjoy your rewards. Thank you for being part of this. Please rate on BGG the game from 1 to 10.

And finally, some news for Mexican backers which we will continue in Spanish for backers' convenience.


¡Gracias a todos por la espera! Hace unos días por fin recibimos las copias en México. Desgraciadamente llegaron sólo los juegos base pero hemos localizado las expansiones de 5 jugadores así como los componentes Kickstarter y llegarán el fin de semana. Una vez que lleguen procederemos con los envíos cuanto antes para intentar que los juegos lleguen antes de Navidad.

 Dicho esto, nos encantaría invitar a aquellos que no pueden esperar más por recibir su juego a La Caravana Bistro en Guadalajara (Beethoven 5162, 45030 Zapopan) a partir de las 7:30 pm hasta las 10:30pm para recogerlo directamente por los diseñadores Andrés Novelo y Luis Muñoz, jugar con ellos, firmar su copia y sobretodo disfrutar de 2x1 en pizzas. Si conoces a alguien que no pudo adquirir su copia en Kickstarter o cuyo cargo en la tarjeta no pasó, también es buen momento para asistir. Puedes confirmar tu asistencia aquí.

Más adelante tendremos otro evento para recolección personal en Ciudad de México.

Finalmente queremos invitarlos también a Roll a Game Expo este fin de semana donde estaremos presentes y nos encantaría que nos ayudaran para que Cooks & Crooks gane en la categoría Mejor juego de RAGE 2018.

      I got a tracking email 10 days a gain but it doesn't work. the tracking still say that there's no item under this number. Seriously am I ever going to get it or is this china company just stole and never sent my item?

      ¿Es posible recoger mis juegos en la Expo el 15 de diciembre?

    4. (Angela) Mrs Prendergast welcomes you...

      Glad they change the mold. Can't wait to see how it looks painted 😄

      My copy arrived safe and sound. Love the box design. Sleeved cards fit perfectly.
