Manufacturing Continues: Production Update 6/7

Posted by Isaac Childres (Creator)

Good morning residents of Gloomhaven!

Again I must apologize for being a little late with the update. I don't even have a good excuse this time. I just didn't have anything exciting to say, so I forgot.

Right, so the update is that everything is moving along as predicted. We did manage to solve the map sticker problem I was talking about last time, so no worries there. We were able to change the file before it got printed. The rule book, on the other hand, I know some of you found some typos in it, but it was too late to fix that without causing major problems. I felt all the mistakes were minor and didn't affect game play, so I let it go.

Based on the info from the factory, it sounds like full sets of components are coming off the line. Like I said in a previous update, we still need to finalize construction of the tuck-boxes and envelopes and putting everything in the insert. To do that, the factory will be sending me a printed copy, and I'm hoping that will happen soon.

I don't want to say anything for sure, but I am pretty confident that by next update, I will have a plethora of pictures and videos for you of a real live production copy, which should be exciting.

We're getting close to starting the shipping process, so get your address changed if you need to. You don't need to contact me, though. It's not too late to edit your survey. Just click on the blue "View Pledge" button at the top right of the Kickstarter page, then on the "Survey" tab, and you should see a link to edit your address.

Just to reiterate: sending me a message with your new address isn't going to cut it. Edits to addresses are still open, so I need you to make the changes yourself.

I think that's all I have to say! Hopefully next time I will have many more exciting things for you!

      Don't worry about schedules. Just make it great. I'd even have waited for the updated and spell-checked rules ,-).

      A good weekend to you!

      My copy of Conan, AND my copy of Gloomhaven might be here soon. I'm not sure I have enough "drool" to go around.

      Thanks for those continuous updates. No need to apologize, this KS has been a role model as far as (timely) updates are concerned. Feels like we'll be getting a monster of a game soon .... looking forward to it.

      The weird numbering is because I screwed up the numbering two updates ago.
