Shipping Update Video!

Hi backers! Wow! What an exciting time! I've made a short video update below, and also did a text version if you prefer :)

Shipping update Video

Here's a synopsis of the video content:

Fulfillment status at a glance! :)
Fulfillment status at a glance! :)

Asia: Direct orders are complete! If you haven't gotten a tracking # please feel free to let us know!

-South Africa: Bulk shipment should be clearing customs this week!

-Brazil: Bulk shipment is on it's way to Conclave Editora

Australia / New Zealand: Email - all orders have gone out!

Canada: Email - all orders have gone out!

Europe: Orders are still shipping! Don't worry if you haven't gotten yours yet! Keep an eye on your inbox for tracking #s.

United States: We're about 80% through our orders, it's gone slower than normal because we're waiting on stock to show up in Amazon's system.

Usually it only takes a couple days, but for this shipment we're waiting on about 500 sets of coins show (about 4 cases). Amazon gives themselves 2 weeks to reconcile your shipment before they let us request they look into it.

Obviously that's a long time, so David and I yesterday took maters into our own hands and labeled and shipped all our extra coins to Amazon. There are enough extra coins to cover all the remaining orders. So fingers crossed they arrive soon and we can finish processing the remaining orders! (Or the coins that Amazon haven't processed yet may show up sooner! I keep checking every hour or so) :)

Thanks for your patience in this, I know it can be difficult to wait when other people are getting their copies, and you are doing a fantastic job being patient!!! :)

Conclusion

You guys rock! Please feel free to comment or email us if you have any questions (but please know that our inboxes are flooding, so it may take us a while to reply! :)

Ok, back to the inbox to answer emails!! Until next time, I'll see you starside!

Cheers, -Cody

      Hello, I finally got a chance to set up the game and realized that I had two minis for the Ghoststalker, but no Scoundrel! Can you please send me a Scoundrel mini? Thanks.

      Hello Cody and Team,
      I received the package in Argentina; but it´s in English; while It was requested it to be in Spanish. I´am still in the hospital trying to recover from the Shock from when I opened the box... =(

      Sent you an emal to info@faroffgames.com; to look forward how we can address the issue. Many thanks in advance,

      I only pledged for Missions and Powers, but I haven't seen anything yet.

    7. John Biggs on

      I'm sure it's something I did wrong since the last couple things I did on pledge manager had the same issue, but I haven't seen anything yet in the way of tracking information for my pledge and you're probably waiting on some information from me. Could you look into it when you have some time?
      Thanks

      Ah... your right. Just rechecked my pledge. For some reason I only pledged for the mini expansion... DOH!
      I guess at least I don’t need to find shelf space...

      Hey there! Just tried to answer all the questions below! I'll keep watching here if anyone has any other Q's! :) -Cody

      @Mark Ellmann: Haha! SO awesome!! I hope your game went well!! :D

      @Rick Starzinski: Hmm, strange! I've checked in and your coins should ship out as soon as they come in stock, sorry about that Rick! :)

      @Kisa A: Haha! Yes, that is frequently my problem with other games! Here's a kickstarter post I did about how I store my copy of Xia: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1438045410/xia-embers-of-a-forsaken-star/posts/1932345

      @Alberto Vitali: SWEEET!! You're very welcome Alberto!!

      @Mats Forsén: Hmm, I wasn't aware that was a Symbol of Chaos :P

      @Jason: Wow, thanks so much for the complements! :) Thanks so much for joining us on this journey!!

      @Alan Barnes: So great! Thanks for sharing Alan! It warms my heart to know that you enjoyed the campaign! And you bet I'll see you at the next one!! :)

      @Dominik: YES! You're welcome Dom!! :D

      @Glen: Haha! Aren't those rad?? My sisters got them for me! :)

      @Darryl Shannon: Nice!! Yay! :)

      @Tyinsar: Oh no!! Sorry to hear it Ty! But glad that you have good neighbors!!! Wishing you many hours of happy gaming eh? :)

      @luc: Nice!!!

      @André Silveira / Jamie Alexandre Sinclair Piedade: According to the email I got from VFI Asia they were a few weeks out last week - so I imagine 2-3 weeks until they get to Brazil. As Jamie has pointed out, my experience with customs in Brazil is that it can take a very long time to get things through. I'll keep you updated as we go though! :)

      @Andrew Gilpin: Hehe! I'm happy to hear you're enjoying your boxES!! :D I hope you can rustle up some friends to play!! :)

      @Brenden: Please don't be concerned! I've just checked on your order, you're in the 20% of orders that haven't shipped out (we're waiting for stock to show up in Amazon's account). So, no worries! Just waiting on Amazon to get their stuff together! :)

      @Andrew Hogan: Thanks man! Couldn't have done it without your support!! I hope the C-37 Starstrider flys straight and true for you!! XD

      @Joel A: Haha! I'm so happy to hear Xia's arrived in Sweden!! And sorry to hear about your Xia Station woes! I hope you're able to get one you're happy with! :)

      @fritzilla: WOOOH! Nice!!!

      Missions & Powers + 2k coins (why didn't I order more than one pack?) arrived to me in Sweden earlier this week. The coins are more brownish and less orange than I expected, but still look nice. Thanks, and keep up the good work, you all!

      (Now if only the online vendor that said "yes, our Xia Station is version 2.0" before I placed my order and then still sent me the original version would have had the same sense of commitment and quality that you have at Far Off Games, everything would have been perfect... :/)

    19. Andrew Hogan on

      Received M&P pack, Sellsword and 2,000 cr coins to complete my set. Well worth the wait. Many thanks.

      Looking forward to trying out the Sellsword/Wasp in my games now. Once again, well done on producing a most excellent game.

    20. Brenden on

      I'm in the United States, but haven't seen a shipping email yet. One of my neighbors and fellow backers has already received their shipment. Should I be concerned?

      I'm in Canada, and I got my copy yesterday. What a box! BoxES, actually. It all looks incredible! I love the coins - they look SO good. Now I need to find at least 2 other people and a free evening and get this to the table. THANK YOU!

      @André Silveira I was told last week it would take "a few more weeks". Knowing how things work in Brazilian customs, it could easily take 2-3 months. =/

      Hello! Any idea of when Brazilian shipping will hit Conclave?

      Cody, Xia is one of my favorite games and their campaigns have been my absolute favorite projects on here. You handle communication like a champ and handle issues in a reasonable time. Amazing man. Genuinely wish you all the best! Keep it up!

      I got mine last Sunday, I love the ships though one thing, and this all games I order, never can figure out where to put stuff in the boxes or what bags to put stuff in. I got the slots for the map hexes and cards and what not but the coins always all out on me from their slot and still wonder what should go where. But anyway love the ships the most the and can't wait to play it.

      My delivery is scheduled for today! Minneapolis, MN.

      I did re-open my pledge in Oct and added on the 2k coins, which were not listed on my shipping email. Will these be shipping separately, or should I send an email about it? (not sure which email to use?)

      Thanks so much Cody! Super excited to play!

      Just got M&P and Sellsword today. Everything is gorgeous as always. Big game planned tomorrow. Cody, Ira, you guys are Legendary Legends!

      Everything arrived today here in germany - and it looks as exiting as I expected & I expected a lot- can't wait for the first game! Great updates of the shipping process - I loved to know the updates where the containers/the ship is.
