haha. ahh. I’ve been waiting over a year to use that joke. Not worth it.

Anyway- The shipments have arrived in our warehouse!
Here are some photos!

Jess, Jesse, and I will be going up this Sunday to sign the ‘Signed Copies’, bring up the pins, pack the boxes in other just-slightly-larger boxes, and make sure everything is good to go. We hope to have everything mailed out on Monday.

That means, it is FINALLY time for the Kickstarter Rewards Survey. You will be receiving it shortly.

Three Very Important Pieces of Information: 

1- If you do not live in the US and did not add the correct amount for shipping
Before you fill out the survey, please do so. You can add money to your order by clicking here, and buying a credit for the correct amount. On the survey you will see a box at the bottom where you should place the order number you receive. If you did in fact pay the right amount and don't need to do this, just put N/A in the box.

2- If you backed us at a tier receiving either a mouth board or a framed piece of artwork:
We will send out an additional survey soon asking you to order the work you’d like from most to least, so that we can sort it out on our end. Those artworks will be mailed separately and probably slightly later because all of our energies are going to make these game boxes get out as soon as possible. Please still fill out the survey we send today in its entirety, as that is what we will use to ship you the game. If you backed us at the Surprised Art Collector level, your artwork will be sent in the game box, and there will be no additional survey so you will be surprised.

3- Please fill out the survey promptly.
If we don’t have your information by Sunday, we can’t guarantee your particular order will go out on Monday.

Thanks so much for bearing with us on this, everyone! I am so proud of this game, and so excited about this all finally happening.

-Zach (+Jess, +Jesse)

      No game for me yet. Any idea when I should expect it to arrive in NZ?

      Guys. Guys. Guys. I GOT IT TODAY. I'm in UT. This game is beautiful. This might be my favorite Kickstarter perk to date! :D

      Love the quality of the pieces. Worth the wait, for me.

      Mine arrived today (down state Illinois), have faith fellow backers. The game components are terrific, worth the wait I'd say.

      I'm with @laurie. I'm in the $25 tier, live in the middle of the US and haven't seen anything. Hoping it didn't get lost in transit or something like that.

      Received my signed copy here in the UK. Really nice look and feel to the game. Will be playing a round with the missus later on tonight. Cheers Zach and team!

      Creator Lucas on January 16

      @laurie I haven't received mine either. I was kinda thinking the same, hence why I came here, hoping for a new update. I live smack dab in the middle of the country, 'Braska, and I'm on the $25 tier.

      Otherwise, the suspense is definitely building, I've wanted to play this game since last spring, hehe. It'll be all worth it in the end.

    14. Missing_small

      Creator laurie on January 16

      Reading through Zach's responses, it looks like copies for U.S. backers at the $20 or $25 tier should have shipped on 12/31/2013. Including the holiday, that puts us at about 2 weeks from ship date, today. Have any US backers at that tier received their copy yet? I'd like to just get a shipping estimate, to know if I'm an anomaly or USPS is as slow as they've always been, heh. Looking forward to getting to play this awesome game!

      @Zach do you have many packages going to Norway? If no, did you ship my game? ;D

      I just got my copy, thanks so much. It is just as fun as I remembered from PAX.

    17. Clarence.small

      Creator Christopher Scott-Blore on January 13

      @Zach no worries! I usually stuff up on these kind of things so I was more worried that I had made the mistake. I look forward to playing! All this impatience is surely testament to how fun it looks to play!

      Thanks for replying so fast.

      Creator Zach Gage on January 12

      @jacksun - unfortunately theres no way to do tracking with USPS on orders of this size. we'd have to transcribe all the tracking numbers by hand. Let me know if it doesnt arrive in the next week or two and we'll start tracking it down

      @christopher - I haven't heard of anyone international getting theirs yet. In fact, im not 100% confident that they've all gone out. Sorry to ask you to be ever more patient, but thats all i can say :/ Definitely nothing has gone "wrong" with your address or payment yet, so theres no need for concern, I would be surprised if it had arrived this early on your shores

    20. Clarence.small

      Creator Christopher Scott-Blore on January 12

      Hi there, I was wondering if anyone had recieved their copy via international shipping?
      Trying to be patient but I'm just wondering if I filled the survey out correctly. I'm sure I paid enough for my Limited Fancy Edition and shipping when I first backed. Any clarification that my copy is on its way?

    21. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Jacksun Floyd on January 9

      Hi I filled out the survey a couple of weeks ago and was wondering if there was some way i could get tracking info or confirmation of some sort?

      Hey Vincenzo and Trev, I've been posting updates in the main comment thread for the kickstarter.
      Here's what I posted there:

      If you bought anything including or over the $35 tier (except for the $50 tier) and you live in the US, your order has been shipped.
      Those of you live in the US, and who bought the $50 tier, or the $20, or $25 tier, or ordered from the pre-order page on the guts shopify, should have your orders shipped by this coming Tuesday (tomorrow).

      Those of you who are international, we've been sending out a few orders every day, but because the paper work takes a lot more time to process, its a little slower going, so expect those to ship out over the course of this month.
      I'll have another update once everything is out, and we'll be sending an art survey for the higher tiers this week

      There have already been a few of you who've gotten your boxes who let me know on twitter and seem psyched. Thanks for the supportive words! I hope you enjoy the game :)

      Jeremy and Nathan-
      We were up in the warehouse on monday to get things prepped. I haven't heard from my contact there if the games have actually gone out yet. but I'm chasing that information down. I'm hopeful that they have gone out, or will be going out today (thursday)

    29. Yoshi_pm2.small

      Creator Jeremy Ortiz(yoshisword02) on December 19

      yes were they? :3 My girlfriend was bugging me about it and now we're both excited to play! haha

      Benoit and Josh-
      Oh man that is weird and confusing. I'll look into it (shopify is weird).
      For now just order the cards and ill toss them in. The shipping *should* be 0.00 on the site, but something must have gone wrong

    34. Missing_small

      Creator Josh Lobban on December 12

      Hey Zach, I went to order the cards and got the same message Benoit Fouet did. "Unfortunately there is no Shipping Rate available for your destination and/or weight of your cart."

      Should I just complete the purchase and assume you'll toss em in with my game?

    35. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Benoit Fouet on December 12

      Hey @zach, I wanted to get the bonus card so that they can ship with the board game, but the shop tells me "there is no Shipping Rate available for your destination and/or weight of your cart".
      What can I do about that?

    36. Zachsquare.small

      Creator Zach Gage on December 11

      We won't forget about the bonus cards :)
      @brian urso- the bonus cards were the artist cards which we didn't quite hit the stretch goal for. They're available for 5$ on https://guts-of-glory.myshopify.com and if you order in the next few days we'll definitely toss them in this shipment

      Very happy to see you guys make it this far. I'm sure the care and attention to detail you guys poured into the project with all the revisions and corrections show in the final product, and I can't wait for this game to take it's waiting, empty space on my shelf. Kudos, guys.

      I'm not sure :/
      We'll send as soon as we can but I'm not an expert on international shipping. Hopefully I'll have more information on Sunday or Monday when I can talk to my friend who runs the warehouse we're using
