Step 19 - Unplug
Hey everyone, most of you in Australia would have received your copies of Vivarium by now. There's a few around Canberra who I wasn't able to deliver to (I did hand deliver over 100 copies though!), you should hopefully have yours by the end of the week. :)
For everyone overseas, your games are inching around the world towards you. I thank you for your patience and am hopeful that everyone will have their games well before February. The US copies should have just arrived by now and will be looking to be fulfilled in the coming weeks. The EU/ROW copies should arrive at the fulfilment company in early January.
I hope everyone who has received Vivarium so far enjoys it. Being my first project it might be a little rough around the edges but ultimately I think we have a beautiful, fun an unique game on our hands and I hope you can share that sentiment with me!

While I'm not keen to play the numbers game at this point, having a good ranking for Vivarium on BGG is crucial to the longevity of the project and for my prospects as a designer in the future. So if you've enjoyed Vivarium, or heck, even if you just think it's pretty looking, jump on and give it some love. :) A little bit of love goes a long way for a first time publisher. ^_^
I'll be adding some more content to the BGG page in the new year with some species breakdowns and maybe a newer how to play video.
However, for now, I'm off to Japan for some much needed relaxation. I'll still try and be as responsive as possible but I will be unplugging a bit!
My sincerest thanks to all of you for your support, have a great holiday season!
