One Year Later: Production Update 5
Happy anniversary, residents of Gloomhaven!
It is kind of crazy to think about, but It has been over a year now since we first started this adventure together. I could while away about how I'm frustrated it's taking so long, but you've all heard that song plenty of times before. Instead I'm here to rejoice that after one incredibly eventful year, the journey to getting the game to your doorstep is nearing completion!
The factory says they'll be finished with production by early next month, and then we're just a boat ride and a couple truck rides away from getting all your pledges fulfilled.
I really don't have much else to say this week other than that updated production schedule. Everything seems to be running smoothly over in China. Well, we did just sort of have a small thing where Josh realized a few of the scenario location stickers that go on the map board actually overlapped with the folds in the board, which is kinda bad, but we're dealing with it.
Oh, hey, one other thing I did want to share with you all is a finalized rule book. I should have made this available once it was finalized, but it got kinda crazy there when we were getting all the files uploaded and I forgot. We'll get it up on BGG shortly as well.
Okay, last thing is that I have decided to go to Essen this year, so I am looking forward to seeing some of you there! I will have one or two advance production copies to show off, but unfortunately I won't have copies to actually sell at that point. They'll be on a boat somewhere because it is too expensive to air-freight them over in time for the show. But if you're the kind to torture yourself, you should come by and see all the cool stuff you'll be getting in the box a month before you actually get it.
I haven't been given a booth number yet, but I'll let you know when I do. Anyway, that's all I have to say. See you all later!
