Pledge Manager reopening soon

Greetings explorers,  

We have just validated the new cards’ cutting tools manufactured by Panda. Reprinting of the second edition Base Box cards and Upgrade Packs will therefore begin in the upcoming days and run until August, when printing of the existing expansion cards will begin.  

Here is an update on the status of work on wave 2 expansions as well as information regarding the reopening of the Pledge Manager next week.  

Wave 2 Expansions  

Bruno has finalized the texts for all the cards in the new expansions – The White Box, Comfort Creatures and The Flying Roots – as well as all the Stretch Goals (which will be included in the White Box). Proofreading, translation and graphic integration are also well underway.  

This summer will be dedicated to the completion of the illustrations by Ludovic and to the continuation of the tests and proofreading by Bruno and his collaborators. 

To tide you over, here is the latest version of Phileas Fogg & Passepartout, as well as their Skill cards (these cards may still change depending on the results of testing/balancing). 


Note: The more observant among you will have noticed a new icon (number in red diamond) on the "Cushion" and "Teamwork" cards. This is a new "Mastery X" ability whose effect is as follows: during the Result step, if the action is successful and the active player has drawn, in the Action Deck, "X" cards or less at the Cost step, he can choose up to "X" of these cards and shuffle them back into the Action Deck. 

Pledge Manager reopening and Delivery Wave 1.5 

The reopening of the Pledge Manager is scheduled for Tuesday 3rd July at 12 PM Eastern Time (6 PM / 18h00 CET) and it will be accessible until the 31st of July. 

As indicated in our previous update, it will allow those of you who so wish to: 

  • Request to receive their already available rewards (Base Box and game accessories) in wave "1.5" with a delivery scheduled in September/October 2018. There will be an additional shipping cost but it will be no more than if you’d have originally chosen delivery in two waves last November. 
  • Add Base boxes (limited to surplus production available stocks) and/or expansions to your contribution that will be delivered in wave 2. 
  • Add game accessories to your contribution: they will be delivered in wave 2. They can be delivered in wave 1.5 but only for contributors requesting to receive their Base box in wave 1.5.
    Note: If you have already received content in wave 1, it will unfortunately not be possible to receive delivery in wave 1.5 for game accessories. 

With the opening of our online store being postponed until 2019, the reopening of the Pledge Manager will also allow those who did not participate in the campaign to purchase a Base box, expansions and/or game accessories. These production surplus copies will be proposed within the limit of available quantities, with a delivery in wave 2.

IMPORTANT: 

  • If you have already contributed to the project, the reopening of your Pledge Manager account will be automatic. It is therefore useless to contact us to make the request. 
  • If not, a link will be made available on the Kickstarter project page, our Facebook page and the official website The 7th Continent. In addition, an email will be sent to subscribers to our newsletter. 

Thank you all and happy holidays to those of you who are taking them!

      Is that "endurance" I see as a new keyword? (On "United we stand")

      Yes David, that is why the manager is open right now.

    3. David Hunter on

      Is there any chance (now that I know how good the game is after I got it in wave 1) I can purchase the expansions? Will there be anymore chances to buy these??

      @Remi, it's admittedly all a bit confusing.

      For me, it just made sense that the corrected cards are part of the "new content" that will not be ready so soon, especially when you consider that the base boxes for wave 1.5 (which are already printed and waiting in the warehouse to be shipped) are scheduled for Sep/Oct. The logistics of printing new cards, opening those sealed base boxes, swapping out new cards, resealing and shipping them, etc. sounds a lot harder than shipping what you have and sending unboxed, corrected cards in wave 2.

    5. Rémi on

      My bad for wrong assumption on Wave1.5 having corrected cards.
      It is NOT the case as Jaime stated here & in comment section.

    6. Jamie "WhelpSlayer" Johnson Collaborator on

      -> When I get the base box in wave 1.5, do I automatically get a card update of these cards in wave 2 (without sending any forms or anything).

      Yes. Core boxes sent in wave 1.5 will NOT be the corrected version, and you will automatically be signed up to receive the corrected cards in Wave 2.

      -> @ Jamie I know everything is clear in this 69th (Yummy) update. But I still feel compelled to ask a repetitive question, what should I do?!

      Wait until the next update ;)

      @Remi, Jamie also says "Replacement cards for 2nd edition base box and upgrade packs will be sent automatically if you have content coming on wave 2. If you don't, we'll let you konw how to ask for them in a future update (before wave 2 occurs)."

      My understanding from the beginning was that everybody who received a base box in Wave 1 (and now 1.5) AND who is expexting expansion content in Wave 2 gets the replacement cards in wave 2 automatically, whether you want it or not. It's only the people who ordered ONLY the base game in Wave 1 (and now 1.5), AND who will not be receiving anything in Wave 2, that will need to make a special request by filling out the form that Jamie references.

    8. Dylan O'Donnell on

      @Rémi : As I read it, that just means that 1.5 recipients won't need to submit a request; they'll automatically receive replacements in Wave 2 for the possibly-duff cards they got in 1.5. (Since only people with stuff to ship in 2 will be eligible for 1.5 anyway.)

      @Schleima: by my understanding, the 1.5 games aren't overrun, they're the base games that were already printed and earmarked for specific pledges, but held back (by single-wave request) for wave 2 shipment. (Any accessories that might be being newly added at this stage, _those_ will be sourced from overrun, I'd think.)

    9. Rémi on

      @Schleima:
      From Jaime 2-days ago:
      "If you have already received your Core Box in Wave 1, there will be a simple form to fill out [to receive corrected cards]. If you have yet to receive anything though it'll be automatic."

      Changing your Wave2 scheduled Base Game to Wave1.5 counts as "yet to receive anything".
      Also only people who already ordered the Base Game but selected "delivery all at once" originally will receive Base Game in Wave1.5 ; those buying it anew in PM reopening will get it in Wave2.

      Schleima on

      Remi, are you sure about that? My understanding is that base games shipped in wave 1.5 are the overrun from the second printing that were going to be sold at the SP store. As such, they would contain the miscut and misprinted cards.

    11. Realarete on

      Still enjoying the first KS game, will enjoy other game while I wait for the expansion and new add ons ... No sweat SP.

    12. Rémi on

      @Souchon:
      Wave1.5 Base Game will already include corrected cards, same as Wave2.
      And if you got Base Box in Wave1 with problem cards, you will receive replacement cards (all of them), NOT a new full box with minis and such.
      Just to clear from the wording on your comment, since you asked :)

      Souchon Laurent on

      @Maurice
      If you want to play this winter, ask for the Wave 1.5
      You may receive a box with perfectly printed and cut cards. I received my box on Wave 1 and I don't have any complain about the cards.
      If you receive a box with problems, you would have to tell it on the correct form ans then wait for the Wave 2 to have a second box without bug. At least, you can play this winter, even if the cards are not correctly cut or printed.

      Anyone, correct me if I'm wrong.

    14. Ken Brown on

      @kar I agree, but they’ve said they are rigorously QCing upcoming cards to ensure color and size matching.

    15. kar on

      @ken Brown: then I hope there isn't a color difference between KS 1 and KS 2. Because that would suck for first time backers.

    16. Doctor Nny on

      I beat all 8 current curses.... I love this game. I want more so much.
      But my hype is totally dead for this game due to the 2019 release. Another 10 month delay just like KS1, makes it forgettable until it actually arrives and thats just sad. :(

    17. Ken Brown on

      @kar The first KS didn’t have widespread misprinted cards. The replacements are only for Second Edition copies

    18. Bobby D on

      @Maurice Neat!

    19. kar on

      Is the reprinting of the base box cards only open to backers who had the base box shipped in the first wave of this KS or is it also possible for people who bought the base box in the first KS?

    20. Maurice Lutterot on

      @Bobby D: Not everyone's command of the English language is as good as yours. I've read all updates multiple times and I read all about corrected cards in wave 2 for issues in wave 1, and about wave 1.5 not including the corrected cards. I also read about a form that you have to fill in and send proof of colour and size issues. I was not able to distill whether I'd need a form and proof et cetera to get a new a new base set of cards in wave 2 if I get my base box in wave 1.5. I hate the hassle of sending messages back and forth to get the corrected cards. I just reread all updates on this and I don't really understand where I can see whether people who receive the base set in wave 1.5 will automatically get a replacement set in wave 2.

      Woo hoo! receiving these glorious boxes, and having them grace their rightful place on my shelf of wonders is yet so far away... but still, I wait with absolute pant wetting excitement! EEEE!!!

    22. Curtiss Cox on

      @ Steve and Maurice - The Wave 1.5 shipments will not have the updated cards and could still have color/size discrepancies. BUT it is worth noting that not every copy of the game exhibited those problems.

      The color/size corrected cards are being shipped out as part of Wave 2.

    25. Maurice Lutterot on

      Originally, I wanted to receive everything (I went all-in) in a single wave. But with the delay, I'm thinking about getting the game in two waves (1.5 and 2), so I can play this winter.
      When I get the base box in wave 1.5, do I automatically get a card update of these cards in wave 2 (without sending any forms or anything). If so, I'll choose to split it into two waves.
      If these updated cards are not sent automatically, I prefer to get everything in wave 2.
      What do I do?

      @ Jamie:
      Thanks for full and clear answer.
      I can't wait to get expansion and all small packs in my hands.
      My 1st contact with 7th continent was with 1 wave. With cards that have all mentioned problems, but still game is mesmerizing. We already have sth like 200 hours of game play behind and want more.

    27. Jamie "WhelpSlayer" Johnson Collaborator on

      ->So, I understand that there will be information in a proper time "How and when claim replace cards sets from wave 1" ?
      Exactly

      ->This "form" will also give the possibility for complaint of addons ?
      I mean those delivered in wave 1, so:
      1. Dices, that can't play role of dices.
      2. Playing mat that is not stretching out after 2 months and still makes game more onerous than it helps.

      No, you need to go through the replacement parts portal for that: https://the7thcontinent.seriouspoulp.com/en/after_sales/

      -> So, we only need to fill the "form" if everything we ordered was in wave 1, because it requires additional shipment of reprinted cards in wave 2 ?
      If we have problems with wave 1 and still have part of the order for shipment in wave 2, we don't need to fill "the form", because the reprinted cards will be added automatically ?
      Basically yes 😊

    28. Bruce Belafonte on

      I guess I'll go ahead and order everything I don't already have or have ordered.

    29. Curtiss Cox on

      @norworks - Customer service issues with your already delivered components need to go through the normal channels that have been covered in previous updates.

      the form he is talking about now is specifically for people who need replacement cards and are NOT already scheduled to get another shipment.

      This is the only wrong part, as in it won't be in the PM (as of yet). we'll let you know how to request them in a future update (before wave 2 occurs).

      Jamie, please confirm or correct me if I'm wrong:

      If we received the base box in Wave 1, and we have items already set to come in Wave 2, then we will automatically get the reprinted base set cards.

      If we have received the base box in wave 1, and we do not have anything coming in wave 2, then we need to go into the reopened pledge manager, and there will be an obvious and easy-to-find form for us to fill out.

      If we only have items coming in wave 2 (none from wave 1) including the base box, then we will receive the base box in wave 2 as normal,and the cards included will be from the reprint.

      Basically it means that if you take more of a risk by drawing less cards you may get some back :)
