Shipping, Reviews and Rules

Posted by David Chott (Creator)

This update includes the latest news on shipping, links to two new reviews of Lagoon, and a link to the final rulebook. I'm very excited for all of you to receive your games soon!


United States and Canada

The ship carrying a full container of Lagoon for North America just docked in Long Beach yesterday! However, my shipping agent reports:

"Currently we are facing extreme congestion in LA, so the ETA is unstable at this point, once it is on the rail, it should arrive in Chicago in about 5-7 days. We will continue to check on these and let you know when its due into Chicago, once its been placed on the rail."

Normally, it might take a week or more for the games to clear customs. Unfortunately, it sounds like the conditions at the port are going to extend that for an unknown length of time. As soon as I get an update from my shipping agent, I'll share it with you. If the delay is no more than a week or so, I still expect packages to ship out to US and Canadian backers in October.

European Union and Vicinity

The ship is still on schedule for arrival in the UK on October 1. Packages should start shipping by mid-October.

Other International

Working with my fulfillment partner 4PX is moving more slowly than I hoped. I had a Skype call with my account rep and another 4PX employee last Thursday so I could ask a few important questions, and am still waiting for answers. I've reached out several times since then, and hope to hear from them by next week. I think my account rep didn't know the answers to some of the questions, and we're waiting for another employee to provide the missing information. 

Once this is settled, it sounded like it would take no more than a week to pickup the games from the factory and ship them out to backers. I'll keep you posted once I get better information.


Joel Eddy reviews Lagoon
Joel Eddy reviews Lagoon

Earlier this week, a really solid video review of Lagoon was posted by Joel Eddy from DriveThruVideos.

And a thoughtful written review was also posted this week by Daniel DeMars, who demoed Lagoon several times at GenCon and had some wonderful things to say about it!

Final Rulebook

If you'd like to read the final rules before your game arrives, I've posted a PDF version you can download here.

      Daniel: I was quite impressed with your insights on the dynamics in Lagoon from just two plays, and you articulated them exceedingly well!

      Thanks for featuring my review! Having it mentioned in the same post as Joel's is very flattering.

      Just got a brief note from my account rep at 4PX saying he'll respond to my questions this week. Once I get proper guidance from 4PX on timing, I'll send another update.

      LOL @ Kevin Carter, I live in Long Beach too and was going to ask the same thing!

      I'm assuming the backup might have something to do with the dock fire that happened a few miles away from here this week. It took a couple days to fully extinguish and it shot out some toxic fumes into the area.

      If I live in Long Beach can I go pick it up? Hah

      Good news or bad I love you keep letting us know what's going on. It makes the wait much easier I think.

      Gah! The frustrations of tracking shipping. I live in Los Angeles and the game is here!
      But, alas, it must travel to Chicago first... :)
