Quick update and PAX

Hey folks,

  We just got flew back from GAMA (and boy are my tentacle wings tired). It was a fun show, and I was really surprised by the fact that we hit #1 on the Board Game Geek hotlist! Totally cool. We found a lot of emails waiting for us when we got back - these will take a couple of days for sure. Dave should be hitting the shipping skids this week as well for the overseas orders. 

  We've got some really nice emails from players who have been enjoying the game - these are just about the greatest emails ever to read. We particularly appreciate those who tweet and Facebook about the game, as eventually the game will be available in game stores.

 I keep reminding the guys that Fun to 11 is not a traditional "game company" - instead, we are just folks who want to put games we like out in the hands of players who will like them. As such, don't expect to see a bunch of ads in gaming magazines or a demo squad from fun to 11 anytime soon! Our games need to stand on their own.

  We've carved out one exception to this rule and that is PAX. The great folks at Kickstarter asked us to give a presentation at the show about our experience and to give advice to others who want to do the same thing. Without Kickstarter, we'd never have been able to make this game (cough, or any others we might be planning, double cough...), so we agreed to go to PAX. We got a small booth there and will be giving a talk on Sunday if anyone wants to see behind the curtain. We'll have copies of the game to sell (of course, you all already have yours!), but if you're at the show, please stop by and say hi! I'm hoping to get any backers who stop by to sign my copy.

Thanks again everyone!

Luke

      Are all the boxes on their way?
      Can't wait to receive mine. :-)

      Will us Canadians be receiving my USPS or UPS? I ask because USPS delivers through Canada post and if I'm not home I can do same day pick up five minutes from my home. UPS on the other hand will charge me an extra ten dollars for accepting the package (on top of whatever they charged you to send it) and if I'm not home on the three consecutive days they try to deliver it, then I have to travel for an hour and a half to go pick it up, and then another hour and a half to get back home again.

    4. Creator Jeremie 'Remie' DeWitt on March 21, 2012

      Luke, I'm totally stopping by your booth at PAX east and going to meet you guys.

      Dang, I'd love to attend the kickstarter talk but will only be there Fri and Sat. I'll be sure to swing by the booth one of those days though!

      Sorry, that would be PAX East. And we will be there all weekend, so definitely stop by!

      International goes out this week.

    7. Creator Jeremie 'Remie' DeWitt on March 19, 2012

      man...i'll be at pax east but only on saturday. booo :( unless you will be there all weekend. then yay!

    8. Creator Zlatko Perez-Luna Rafajlovski on March 18, 2012

      Ditto to Jack Thomas' question, any update regarding international copies?

    9. Creator Matt Schwartz on March 18, 2012

      Are you going to be at PAX East in Boston (April 5-7) or PAX Prime in Seatle in the fall? I think that is an important distinction to make :-p

      If you're talking about PAX East, I will deffinitely stop by to sign your board!

    10. Creator Mercedes (Mandy) on March 18, 2012

      oooh exciting :) can't wait to get my 2 copies hehehe...ooooohhhh which one to open which one to save...

    11. Creator Paul Allwood on March 18, 2012

      It's always dodgy saying things like "of course, you all already have yours" when there are International backers who haven't! Appreciate the shipping timescales and it's not as bad as when games become available in International stores before International backers get their copies. This hasn't yet with this game, but it did to a friend if mine with another! Just saying, you need to be careful how you release other copies or you will lose all your goodwill for future endeavours.

    12. Creator Jack Thomas on March 18, 2012

      Have the international copies shipped yet?

    13. Creator J. Christian on March 18, 2012

      I was very excited to find my copy on my doorstep this last week! :D

    14. Creator Dahlia Pena on March 17, 2012

      I got both my copies from UPS last week. I almost gave the delivery guy a hug!!!
