Production Sample Pictures Enclosed!
Hi Backers -- Hope you are all well and enjoying a summer break!
We just wanted to let you know that things are all on schedule at this time, meaning that we expect the container with Vinhos Deluxe aboard to leave China bound for the US in early to mid-August and arrive in the US in September for an on-time delivery to Backers in September. The exact same is true of the EU-bound container and we are quite certain we will have the game at Essen, which has been our plan from the start. Vital Lacerda plans to join us for three days at our booth at Essen, teaching and demoing and signing the game for those fortunate enough to come. Mike Fitzgerald will also be at our booth signing and teaching Baseball Highights 2045; and Glenn Drover will be there for a couple of days as well doing the same with Empires: Galactic Rebellion.
Asian Backers games will likely be the first ones send out, because of proximity to China, and Australia will likely be last because of the need for consolidation. But overall we are very much on schedule for a September delivery of this game to all Backers!
The first production sample we have seen arrived earlier today. I am not much of a photographer but took on the task anyway, so please tolerate the quality:
This production has exceeded even my (lofty) expectations. You are really going to enjoy this game and all the love and attention which Vital Lacerda and Ian O'Toole have lavished upon it.
Best regards -- Rick Soued, for Eagle-Gryphon Games
