Final Address Changes, Shipping Update
Your games are getting closer to delivery time! Full details are below, but in brief I currently expect all rewards to ship out to backers in mid-October.
Final Address Changes
This is last call for address changes! If you need to update your address, please send me a message with your new address through the Kickstarter website by Wednesday, October 8.
Shipping Update in Detail
United States and Canada
Fortunately the delays at the port in Long Beach were minimal. The games are now due to arrive by train in Chicago on October 7. It will take a few days to reload the games onto separate trucks. One is headed to an Amazon.com warehouse in Tennessee for fulfillment to U.S. backers, and the other is headed towards Canada for fulfillment by Snakes & Lattes. I still expect games to begin shipping to backers in mid-October, hopefully arriving in your hands before November.
European Union and Vicinity
The games have arrived in the UK, and will soon be transferred to my fulfillment partner, Spiral Galaxy. However, Spiral Galaxy advised me that their staff will be attending the Essen game fair in Germany next week, so there's a decent chance they won't be able to ship the games until the following week. I'll send an update once they know for sure when the games will ship.
I'm glad to report that communication with 4PX (my fulfillment partner) resumed late last week. They provided some of the answers I needed, and I'm hoping they'll be able to pick up the games from the factory this week. My contact at 4PX is in the Hong Kong office, and I suspect the political unrest there may be contributing to the communication delays. I'm sorry the details on timing are still uncertain here, but I'm doing all I can to move things forward. I'll let you know once I have better information. For now, I anticipate these games will ship by mid-October.
