tl;dr  Shipping has commenced (for reals this time).  We are approximately 1/6th complete, counting the total population of backers, though aside from a few test cases, only pledges going to Asia, Australia and Europe are currently being processed.


So despite a few hiccups, the shipping process is underway.  To date, 135 of 800 backers have had their pledges shipped.  All backers in Asia and Australia should have already received confirmation emails with tracking information, so if you live in one of those regions and haven't yet heard from us, check your Spam folder.  In a few instances, we weren't able to email the backer (or the email bounced), so we may have sent a message over Kickstarter.  However, if you live in Asia or Australia and you can't find any notification anywhere, please get in contact with us.

Shipping to European backers is also underway, with around a quarter having been sent thus far.  Aside from three test cases we did to see if it were feasible to ship direct (it doesn't seem to be), no North or South American pledges are currently underway.

We're going to lose the next few days to the New Year, there's no getting around that.  But we expect to make major progress in completing European shipping next week.  

Once Europe is completed, the remaining materials will be crated up and hauled on the ocean to the U.S., where distribution to North and South American backers will commence.  

That's how things stand as 2017 comes to a close.  We realize we're behind schedule, and we're sorry we aren't able to get you the game before the New Year.    You all have been a tremendously supportive community, and we appreciate your faith in having pledged and your understanding of the various delays that have occurred.

While I can't say we've always done everything perfectly, I can assure all of our backers that our decisions are intended to deliver the best product within the fastest time frame.

None of this would have been possible without our backers.  In the coming weeks, as pledges arrive, we hope you enjoy the game, and that you feel you've received something you can be proud of having supported.  

Thank you, everyone, for a great 2017.  Have a safe and happy New Year.

See y'all in 001 - 2018 (and beyond)!

      I recieved my Traveller shipment. Both the collector's edition and starter set, plus some accessories. Everything is great! I had high expectations and they were exceeded! The icons on the play mat are a great help playing the game. Well worth the wait.

      Hrumph! Wish I had backed this one more than I did. Still want all sort of extra bits now. It looks very nice. Hope the game play matches the looks.

      My Collectors Edition arrived today, and it is awesome! The box is nice, and the Beowulf playmat is just beautiful. Great job, guys!

      Hi I am one of the backers in Australia that has not received any tracking data. What do I need to do?

      I don't really want to speculate and be wrong. We'll update the community as we receive information from our fulfillment service.
