To the port! Freight update!
Hey Backers!! It's an exciting week here at Far Off Games because games are finally leaving the manufacturers and beginning their voyage toward fulfillment centers around the world!!! I've broken it down by region below:
Asia / South America
If you're located in Asia or South America - your games are being shipped via truck to VFI Asia's warehouse - which is only about 6 hours away from Panda in Shenzhen!
When the games arrive they will get into VFI's processing queue and start getting mailed out as soon as possible!
Australia / New Zealand
We received notice from Aetherworks at the end of November that their holiday break this year is from December 21 - January 6th. Unfortunately, the earliest we could get our shipment to them would be December 21st. So our games are going to spend Christmas at PandaGM's warehouse (It only affects our timeline slightly, as our games would be sitting at Aetherworks warehouse otherwise). However, they get back from holiday on January 6th, and we're going to coordinate the ocean freight to arrive as close to that date as we can!
Canada / Europe / United States
Your games are heading to the ports of Shenzhen and Yantian!
Canada: Your copies will be departing on the good ship OOCL ANTWERP December 11th with an ETA at the port of Vancouver on December 25th. From there the games will take a truck to Starlit Citadel, also located in Vancouver, BC!
Europe: Your games will be loaded onto the CMA CGM ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT on Dec 12th! The shipment has an ETA at the port of Southhampton on January 6th. From there it will be trucked to Spiral Galaxy Games for fulfillment!
United States: December 10th your copies will set sail on the RHL CONSTANTIA also headed for the port of Vancouver, BC with an ETA of December 24th! The shipment will then be taken by train to Detroit, MI which is schedule to arrive on January 6th where it will then be delivered to the Amazon.com fulfillment center also located in Detroit!
It's so exciting to finally see the games making their way toward you backers!! I can't wait for you to receive your copies and enjoy our hard work! I'm so thankful for each one of you, supporting me and Far Off Games and allowing us to make awesome games! Here's to safe voyages for each shipment!!! :)
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to post in the comments below and I'll answer them first thing Monday! I will be posting shipping updates as the boats leave port - so you can follow along with the voyages; keep an eye out for those soon!!! :)
Until next time, I'll see you starside!
P.S. Anyone else playing Keyforge? My game group is really enjoying it, and I find the deck names hilarious! My deck is called: "Xaranic, The Programmed Locus Deejay" Hehehe!
