Great update! Congrats on getting things wrapped up... I am so glad I got this in my collection!
Ahh I'm in Australia and it's no big deal to wait a little. I know I wouldn't even be able to wrap my head around a project so enormous to start with haha. You've done beautiful work, David :) Can't wait to hear how you celebrate once this is all wrapped up!
Thank you so much for the update and for the consistent transparency when discussing the delays. I'm sure we all appreciate the hours you're putting into this. Looks to be an incredible game!
I'd just like to say that, though somewhat later than initially expected, I received the game yesterday. It was the highlight of my day! The product was MUCH higher quality than I imagined. Your expectations for quality really made the product that much better. Sometimes having to wait for things to come in just right is totally worth it. I feel like I got more than my money's worth and I haven't had a chance to play it quite yet. Thank you for your honesty and your willingness to be open and realistic about the delays you have faced in bringing this game to market. I'm glad I supported this kickstarter.
A thing of real beauty.
Arrived in Portland yesterday! Opened today and it's clearly a labor of love and not a company trying focused on profit. Beautiful and serious quality throughout. Made to last. Thank you!
Congratulations on an outstanding execution.
I will echo the sentiments that the general quality of the game is very high. Thick cardboard (but easy to separate the bits without damaging them), and the box was HEAVY with the wooden bits in it as well. Overflowing with stuff.
I was one of the people affected by the stuck-together wooden bits. Not sure if this is indicative of anything, but I had some stuck-together wooden seed tokens that separated without any damage. Only the druid tokens got damaged during separation. Again, not sure if that means anything, but I thought I'd throw it out there.
Wow, just got mine yesterday. Amazing quality, much higher than other kickstarters that I have backed. This is above and beyond what I was hoping for. Beautifully done!
I can't wait to see what future content is released for things like that extra astral tile that was included in the box.
Yep, I just played mine for the first time tonight and my wooden tokens were mostly stuck together with the paint chipping off on several. Awesome gameplay and very happy with the quality of everything else in the box.
My copy arrived safe and sound in Spain a few days ago, yay! The game looks as beautiful as expected and it has a very high quality. Thank you!!!
I've gotten mine so I can't speak for those who haven't, but as far as I'm concerned you've done an amazing, wonderful, and fantastic job with this kickstarter. The game is incredible, the production quality is some of the best I've ever seen, the response to problems had been quick and honest, and the whole project has proceeded with unheard of transparency.
Congratulations (though I know it's not quite over yet)!
got my game over here in Europe, played a couple of rounds with my GF. The game is absolutely amazing. So keep your head up, this is not the first time that a Kickstarter has some issues, however you've been amazingly open and up front with problems and decisions. I think that everyone will understand that you can't wait for all backer to receive their game until it goes into open sale. At least you made an open statement about it. On another Kickstarter I got my game only 3 months after I found it in my FLGS. They only ever told us about that until the first ones were commenting on Kickstarter.
I appreciate hearing your perspectives, thank you!
David, I'm in New Zealand so the shipping issues directly impact me.
This is just a note to say thanks so much for the effort you are going to, to sort this problem out. The communication you are providing us makes all the difference to me.
I personally have no problem with the retail version being available before I receive mine. I get enough reward from knowing that my contribution helped make the game a reality.
Eventually the stress you are under will be a memory and you will know whom not to use for any future endeavours you undertake.
CA Bay Area checking in and I got my copy Saturday! 2 days go. I loveeee the quality!
Hi how can we confirm our shipping address? Will this be shipped USPS for US?
FWIW, a few of my wooden tokens were stuck together. With a slight twist they seemed to separate just fine. Not phased at all by that. You've put together a great product. I very much look forward to supporting your future efforts.
