 Recently, Tom Vasel from The Dice Tower ranked PitchCar #1 of his top 10 racing games.

  •  Pitchcar  is a huge success on  TricTrac.net, the top French tabletop games website.
  •  PitchCar is also a huge success on BoardGameGeek.com, the largest International tabletop games website,

Based on prior experience, we have decided to charge you the actual shipping cost upon the conclusion of this Kickstarter. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign has ended. We feel that this is the fairest approach, to both you as a backer and to us as the publisher.    

Eagle-Gryphon Games will handle fulfillment for the United States. BoardGameBliss will handle fulfillment for Canada. Ferti will be handling fulfillment for the rest of the world.

Below we have included a list with shipping estimates for The Loop  ( weight: roughly 2 lbs, dimensions: 12"x12"x13" inches). Note: subject to change based on your specific country / locale. 

*WE DO NOT SHIP TO: Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan

 Below we have included a list with shipping estimates for the Victory Lane pledges.

Risks and challenges

Both Ferti Games and Eagle Games stand by our products, but sometimes issues do happen. Please contact either of our customer service departments with regard to any such issues within 90 days of receiving your copy of The Loop.

Eagle-Gryphon Games has completed 75+ Kickstarter projects to date. All of those projects have either been completely delivered or are in production right now.

We will always do our best through Kickstarter updates to keep you as informed as possible as to the status of your game(s). However, in this business some uncertain factors are beyond our control, such as holidays, customs, quality control, inspection delays, inclement weather and dock strikes - to name a few. Please understand we have little to no control over such factors. We assure you that you will be the first to know any developments as we learn them.

Put simply: you will get everything we promise to you when you pledge to one of our Kickstarter projects, and it will be delivered to you in as timely a manner as possible.

Shipping issues are relatively uncommon, but they do sometimes occur. We double check all of your games for damage before sending them to you. However, there is a small chance that your games may get damaged during shipping by the carrier. If your package is damaged, please contact us so we can assist you.

We will not ship to Russia, the Ukraine and certain places in Asia and the rest of the world, except for specially-made arrangements wherein the Backer takes the risk involved in receiving the package.
