We’ve all been waiting years for this, so I’ll skip my usual howdys and yalls. Let’s dive into it! 

Dinomite delivery!
Dinomite delivery!

In a World of Dinosaurs is finally shipping! Golden Bell and Subtle Chuckle are tag-teaming this effort to make sure your game gets to you in the coming weeks. Golden Bell is shipping out retail boxes from the California warehouse. They are shipping all retail copies that are not heading to central Texas. Subtle Chuckle’s chuck of retail copies arrived earlier this week (from California). We’ll be shipping all central Texas retail and Fancy Pants editions out over the next two weeks. We’re assembling the sexy wood inserts for the Fancy Pants first. We’ll then be packaging and shipping all units.

Happen to be in the Austin area on January 20th? Want to pick up your copy in person? Come celebrate with Pete and myself at the studio. I’ve had a dinosaur pinata in my closet for 4 years (through 4 house moves!) waiting for this party. It’s time! 

 Facebook event here! 

Happen to be at PAX South?  Swing by the Golden Bell booth and say hey! Marc and co. will be there showing off their slate of games. 

We’re all very happy and excited to finally deliver this game to you.

FINALLY!

Final shipping plans - and last call to update that address!

Howdy Dino Diggers,

The long winding road of this project is finally coming to an end. As we’ve reported in the past, all of the games are in a warehouse in California. Between that update and now we (Golden Bell and Subtle Chuckle) put our heads together and have figured out the most efficient way to get these games to you. As we’ve mentioned the project ran slightly over budget, due the the extra Fantasy Expansion cards, but not to worry. We have options for everyone! We finally landed on that and the wheels are in motion. 

Here’s the plan:

Golden Bell will send out all retail copies not addressed to central Texas. All other copies are being sent to our warehouse in Austin, TX. Subtle Chuckle will bundle up the Fancy Pants editions. We’ll then deliver every Fancy and retail copy we have. This effort will kick off in the coming weeks and deliveries will be going out during the remainder of November, December, and throughout January. If anyone would like expedited shipping to be done within a week please send $20 USD (for domestic orders) to Marc@GoldenBellStudios.com. There are some backers who have opted for this and have already gotten their games. While not the ideal scenario, we are doing the best that we can to get these games to you and we are doing everything in our power to get it done as fast as possible. Alternatively, Golden Bell will be at PAX Unplugged sporting an awesome 10x20 booth and if you’d like to arrange a Pickup of your game and meet the crew let Marc know VIA Email and he’ll give you all sorts of hook ups. A last option is that Golden Bell will also be at PAX South, so if you’d prefer to get a SIGNED copy in person at PAX South, let us know & we’ll put one on hold for you!

If you have not updated your address, please do so on backerkit. Short of that, shoot us a message on here and we will make double sure you are updated.

Unboxing the retail box!

Howdy all, 

Pete and I recently received a retail version of the game so we did a little unboxing! In the video, you'll see that we do a good bit of rambling about the components and the next steps. In short: The game looks AMAZING-- better than we ever hoped. Pete and I needed this version to then create the insert for the Fancy Pants Eds. Once we have that, we'll hand-make the fancy inserts and ship these beauties out to you.

As Marc mentioned, he and I will be meeting at Origins Game Fair to chat about the future of Dinos and how best to tackle the backerkit. Enjoy the video!

More news soon.

Origins Game Fair and Shipping Update

Hey Dinos!

Marc here. Just wanted to let everyone know that all the games are ready at the warehouse. The only reason I haven't finalized the BackerKit survey with everyone is I'm waiting for Pete and Brian to get the Fancy Pants edition custom molded insert ready so that everyone can get the games at the same time to be fair. I will actually be seeing Brian at Origins to go over the BackerKit and make sure it looks good for everyone. Other than that, I'd love to hang out with anyone and playtest the game any day any time with you :)

Thanks again for all your patience, we're so close to the finish line. Let's do this!

In a Warehouse + Backerkit Surveys are Incoming!

Hey Dinos!

The units are now in our warehouse in California! We'll be shipping out the regular copies of In a World of Dinosaurs ourselves but Pete and Brian will be shipping out the Fancy Pants edition themselves since they have all the components for it in Texas.

In the next few days I'll be sending out a BackerKit survey for everyone to confirm their addresses and be able to add-on any items. Let me know if anyone has any questions!

Best Regards,
Marc
