Winners and Wings and Things

Shipping is Complete. Shipping was completed previously and you should have your games in hand. If you haven't received your copies, email (our fulfillment house) and (us), so we can get it straightened out. There should be no reason they aren't in your hands at this time. Also, supporters from Canada received a treat in the form of a second shipment. Errors with the shipping can be beneficial for supporters. For our Lifetime supporters, your copies of 1955: The War of Espionage is shipping out this weekend.

Shortage Update. A select number of individuals, as mentioned in a previous update, were not shipped the Dice Cup/Bag combos due to a shortage caused by shipping (amazing what happens when one out of 30 packages goes missing in the post). As such, we've assembled replacement combos and they are ready to send out. They are complete with the exception of the Tagon / Drone dice. These dice are being manufactured and I'm waiting on the new samples to come in to check the status of the dice molds (they have a limited life span). I want to make sure the molds still produce a fine product before they pour the material and send in a huge batch of dice.

And the Winner is.... Don King. Don has won the original line art, done by the esteemed Howard Tayler, for the front cover of Schlock Mercenary: Capital Offensive. As a thanks to our backers and those who pre-ordered, Don's name was drawn out of a hat (not literally a hat) to receive the artwork. Thank you to all who participated and supported our project. The artwork will be shipping out shortly. Congratulations.

More to Come. The extra scenarios are coming coming along and the first will be released very shortly. Though not open ended, if people have an idea or two for a map tile, sketch up the location of the walls and power-ups and we can see about putting together a tile for people to print out. Also, now that all the games have been delivered, they'll be appearing in gaming stores via ACD and Alliance over the next few weeks and in the lead up for the holidays.

      In the comments for update 39 in regards to the dice cup/bag combos it was mentioned "I have a full list of everyone who didn't receive them (you'll be receiving an email right after update #40) so we can make sure you get your items" - I did not, to my knowledge, get the dice cup/bag combos or an email. Is there a delay there, or did the fact that my shipment had issues of some kind get me looked over?
