      So, after having played a couple of rounds, it's a little random for a pure deck building game, but the competition definitely gets the players going quickly. The artwork is beautiful, the rules fairly simple. After the first playthrough, the speed generally picked up and the second game went much smoother.

      As a side note, I've seen the game being sold in France, Germany and Sweden so far, so it seems you're doing quite well in Europe...!

      Finally got a suitable group of people around to play it last weekend - and loved it! Great game, folks! I do appreciate the opportunities for cackling insanely. :D

    3. Creator Arnd Felten on June 26, 2012

      Picked it up from customs yesterday. Beautiful box, can't wait to play this weekend! Thanks again for your amazing work!

    4. Creator Luke Peterschmidt on May 24, 2012

      Arnd,

      Terribly sorry about the wait. You should have an a reply to your mail now!

    5. Creator Arnd Felten on May 23, 2012

      Still nothing on my end. I sent you another email a couple of days ago, but I haven't heard back. Could you get back in touch please?

    6. Creator Ashton Green on May 3, 2012

      My Copy has arrived. It came in yesterday, we managed two games last night. I think it's better than the reviews are making it out to be.

    7. Creator Andrew Stingel on May 3, 2012

      received my copy today (in Australia)

    8. Creator Gilberto Leon on May 2, 2012

      Just got my copy a couple of hours ago. Mexican mail sure is slow, but it's finally here.

    9. Creator Mark on April 28, 2012

      Hiya! Copy arrived today and it's looking great! (too bad for the customs here in Holland... had to pay an additional 20 euro's :')

    10. Creator Luke Peterschmidt on April 23, 2012

      Dave here! I have just done a big round of contacting people who I knew had outstanding problems with shipping or other such issues. I am pretty sure there are some people I missed so if you are having shipping issues or have gotten a damaged box and didn;t hear from me over this weekend, please contact me at dave.freeman@funto11.com so I can get you squared away asap.

    11. Creator Zlatko Perez-Luna Rafajlovski on April 21, 2012

      My copy of the game arrived yesterday. It is awesome, me and my friends played it today and we had a great time.
      Thank you! Keep the great games coming!

    12. Creator jshtww on April 19, 2012

      I have also not received my Kickstarter yet, and I have sent a message on here, as well. I will also try to contact you, Dave.

    13. Creator Luke Peterschmidt on April 18, 2012

      Maelic,

      Dave here. Sorry about the delay in response to your messages. Could you email me at dave.freeman@funto11.com with your details? I will look up what is going on with your package ASAP and get back to you with the details. Sorry again and please have a great day.

    14. Creator maelic001 on April 18, 2012

      Is there an alternative way to get in touch with Fun to 11? I still haven't received my Kickstarter order yet and the multiple messages I've sent through here and to the e-mails on their website have so far gone unaswered. I'm getting to the point where I'm wondering if I need to start logging a formal complaint with Kickstarter / Amazon and contact my credit card company. I've been really disappointed in the lack of communication and customer service here.

    15. Creator John Ibarzabal on April 17, 2012

      Received my copy down here in Brazil yesterday :)

    16. Creator Peter Hawkins on April 16, 2012

      Just had my copy arrive in the UK. It looks great and I'm looking forward to giving it a test play. However, I got stung with paying import duty as it was labelled "merchandise" rather than "gift" - gifts normally escape having to pay import duty up to about $50 value.

    17. Creator Arnd Felten on April 15, 2012

      So far no dice on the game arriving in Germany. I'm giddy with anticipation - as are a lot of my friends who'd like to give the game a try...

    18. Creator Mark on April 12, 2012

      Bart, thanks for the heads up! Hope my copy will arrive soon :)

    19. Creator Ashton Green on April 11, 2012

      I've heard nothing so far about my copy up here in Vancouver Canada.

    20. Creator maelic001 on April 11, 2012

      Glad to hear international backers are starting to get their orders. Still wondering when I'll get my domestic copy...

    21. Creator Bart van der Ouderaa on April 11, 2012

      Mark, I got the game today! So they are arriving in the Netherlands!

    22. Creator Luke Peterschmidt on April 11, 2012

      Thanks Chris. I hate reading rules, they pretty much always don't do the job as well as a person teaching. We also made a few obvious mistakes in the rules that we need to fix (like not even mentioning the bit about reshuffling your discard pile....ugh...). The team here is frighteningly small, and unfortunately, it shows sometimes more than we would like, but we're glad you liked the game!

      I'd love to add some story about the girls too. I'll bring that up with Ken over the Summer - see if we can't get some fiction going. Rob here wants to pitch an animated TV show (I think we'll focus on games of the time being...)

    23. Creator Chris Bond on April 11, 2012

      Guys I have to say... great game. I have only one complaint. It was my first deck building game. I read through the instructions and was clueless. I was forced to watch the video in order to learn the game and teach it to my wife.

      I wish you'd included two things:
      1) Detailed how to play instructions (like the video shows)
      2) A cross reference guide for all the characters (It's fun when you know the stories behind the girls names)

    24. Creator Mercedes (Mandy) on April 9, 2012

      I think I'm going to have to put up my 2nd copy for sale or something. I was really hoping for the original box art as well & my real name :) So I could keep one unopened in my collection.

    25. Creator Mercedes (Mandy) on April 9, 2012

      Both mine arrived in Jpn. I was hoping for 1 of each box art, but maybe I wasn't specific enough. Lol, and I was looking for my name...couldn't find it...then realized it was my nickname here (which no one knows).
      But just opened it up, and it looks fantastic. Can't wait to try it.

    26. Creator codersquid on April 7, 2012

      Should I have received my copy by now? I was away on a trip and when I came back I had some notifications from UPS on my door for a package that got sent back. I am worried that it was this game. I hope not!

    27. Creator Mark on April 7, 2012

      Can't wait for my copy, anyone in the Netherlands who received their copy already?

    28. Creator Legrain Pierre-Emmanuel on April 3, 2012

      Hey there,

      Just receive my copy today and had a sooo nice evening at my game club.
      Many thanks for this great game, it's just too bad that the game box has been squashed during transport.

      Regards

    29. Creator Luke Peterschmidt on April 1, 2012

      Good questions Dahlia
      1: Just the other ones. Survive abilities happen before class "ends" so the cards in your class haven't gotten to the discard pile yet.
      2: (never got this one before, going right into the FAQ). They are removed from the game. This stops the game from slowing down as the decks are sorted and put in the right piles.

    30. Creator Dahlia Pena on March 30, 2012

      Ok, so questions/comments while playing...
      1: If a card says "survive: shuffle all faculty in your discard into your deck" does that mean the teachers in that current class go back into the deck or just all the other ones?
      2: If/when a player is eliminated, does their cards go into the prospective discard piles or are they taken out of the game all together?
      THANKS!!!!

    31. Creator Gilberto Leon on March 29, 2012

      Got my USPS notification today.

    32. Creator Edward Pollard on March 26, 2012

      I just received notification from the USPS that my package has shipped, I presume its part of a wave of international orders.

    33. Creator Natasha Cox on March 25, 2012

      Still haven't gotten ours in Tennessee.

    34. Creator Kelsey Hawley on March 24, 2012

      I have to say, just finished playing the game for the first time last night. While I really like it, I think the included rules book needs a LOT of work. I was happy I had watched through most of your videos so I knew more of the nuances, but there were a lot of questions that came up that I didn't know the answer too. ( and drinking while playing didn't help my memory) I think you should include a downloadable insert on your website to cover some of the missing rules. Like do substitutes and transfers stay in your deck after entering your purchase pile? Transfers are listed as leaving after being in the classroom. What about subs? And locker cards have a mallot and shield. But I thought they went straight to your locker.....?

    35. Creator Edward Pollard on March 23, 2012

      Are there any known expectations on when copies should arrive in Canada?

    36. Creator Chris Miller on March 22, 2012

      Got my first full play in. All comments I've gotten from friends is that the artwork is FANTASTIC! I love the Officer Dagon a) because the card art is great and b) because I can easily envision him beating me over the head with his stop sign. I cannot stand getting him in my faculty. Great job guys.

    37. Creator Luke Peterschmidt on March 19, 2012

      Neal. When turn order is reversed, you end up buying faculty for the player who goes after you (so you switch the direction of the turn as well as who you buy for). That is just about the worst Seth Thaggua example I've ever seen! - Yikes! That is how it works, but it rarely ever works that well. I hope it wasn't too late in the game...

    38. Creator Ben Morgan on March 18, 2012

      Just got the game, looks beautiful! You guys went all out with the artwork, bravo! Can't wait to get my friends over to the house to play it. Keep up the good work.

    39. Creator Peter W. Lenz on March 16, 2012

      Taking one of my sets to a local boardgame store that has a monthly free games day. Will play with many people and see how it goes. Is there a place I can send interested parties where they might be able to order standard editions?

    40. Creator Neal Haggard on March 16, 2012

      Oh, I forgot, we had another issue, that I wasn't sure if it was intentional or not. We had Seth Thaggua survive for a player when they had no deck left. Are we really supposed to pull all their teachers from their discard and shuffle them and put them as his deck? Seems like rather cruel and unusual punishment, but that's how we played it.

    41. Creator Neal Haggard on March 16, 2012

      I can't find a FAQ anywhere else, but am finding answers to my questions here (thanks for clarification on Locker cards). We had a question on one of the events saying that the turn order was reversed as well as to whom you give teacher cards. Does that apply to all other cards that talk about handing things to the right or left, or just the turn order and teacher passing?

      Game is great, looking forward to playing our second game today. Thanks and congratulations!

    42. Creator Ryan Frazier on March 14, 2012

      Going to take it to a local gaming group on Thursday. Hopefully they'll like it.

    43. Creator Angel Baker on March 14, 2012

      Played my first game today, 4 players. We stumbled through the rule book and played things wrong for half the game (We were discarding cards as paying for cards.) After we figured it out, it was crazy fast fun.

      We also had a locker problem. One guy just loaded up in his locker and went to town. I'm thinking of using done of my custom cards to add a locker search effect to some faculty or Pop-a-lock year 3s. The faculty will make you discard (one/all) cards in your locker on survival or something. The pop-a-lock year 3 will have BFF: take one card from a locker and put it in your locker.

      Something like that.

    44. Creator Barry Guertin on March 14, 2012

      Woot! got it in the Mail and taking it to Ohio to share with friends.

    45. Creator Chris Miller on March 13, 2012

      Got mine today! Excellent game. Thanks for all the hard work.

    46. Creator David Foo on March 13, 2012

      How are things going on the international shipping? I want to get some idea how long I'm going to wait (Australia).

    47. Creator Chris Patterson on March 13, 2012

      I know you don't particularly care about individual updates, but I just wanted to say I got mine in yesterday, it looks beautiful, and my daughter will be so happy :) thanks!

    48. Creator TheOrange on March 13, 2012

      Got Mine yesterday. It looks beautiful.
      I have not played it yet... But all the components are there.

    49. Creator Kyle Braucher on March 12, 2012

      Luke said on an FAQ somewhere in the internet that the Friendly/Nightmare and Girl Power stats on Locker Cards do nothing... at this time. Expansions may refer to those values on cards in the store shelves, so they're required to have a stat even though they aren't used in the base set. I'd also expect that at some point you could end up with a Locker card in your deck by some evil Miskantoic trick- they're powerful if they ever got into your hand! Also, throwing Candy at a Chtulu lunch lady would just be science, right? :)

    50. Creator Swampfoxmedia on March 12, 2012

      Got my copy today! Looks amazing! Can't wait to show it off at the local comic shop!
