Very Important: Please check your names!

Hello, everyone -

The publisher has recently put a final version of the rules on their website. Unfortunately, it appears that some names were typed up incorrectly, and that other names are missing entirely.

I would like to correct this problem if at all possible. Would you please do me a favor and have a look at the final rules document on under "Divided Republic" and make sure that:

a) Your name appears

b) Your name is spelled correctly

If there are errors, please contact me here within the next forty eight hours if at all possible. I'm trying to get the publisher to include an errata sheet, but the printing process has already started, and we need time to get it in, if at all possible.

      How's the publishing going? When can we backers in the U.S. expect to get our copy of the game?

    2. Creator maelic001 on March 25, 2012

      Only just saw this. I wanted my name, not my handle in there, but it's all good.

    3. Creator Kennan Ward on March 12, 2012

      Name is not spelled right, oh well

    4. Creator Phil Bauer on March 10, 2012

      My name--Phil Bauer--is not listed.

    5. Creator John Hathorn on March 9, 2012

      "Jon Hathor" should be "John Hathorn". If you don't get this in time for the errata, I'm sure I'll live :)

    6. Creator Gashlycrumb on March 8, 2012

      My name isn't listed, sadly. It's ok though.

    7. Creator CW Karstens on March 7, 2012

      My name is there and is spelled correctly.

    8. Creator Jonathan Harrison on March 7, 2012

      Missing name: Jonathan Harrison.

    9. Creator Daddam on March 7, 2012

      Hi Alex. My name, Adam Koehler, did not appear in the rules booklet. I don't really mind not being mentioned actually, but this does seem like an opportune time to double check that you have me down as a backer who will be sent a copy of the game. That is something I care a great deal about!

    10. Creator christophyr on March 7, 2012

      Don't see my name on the list: Christopher Earley

    11. Creator Peer on March 7, 2012

      Just the first name. Since everyone has their full name, Ill have it too. It would be
      Peer Sylvester

    12. Creator Peter Blitstein on March 7, 2012

      My name is spelled incorrectly. It should be Peter Blitstein.

      Looking forward to playing the game!


    13. Creator Rune Lunden on March 7, 2012

      I do not appear : Rune Lunden

    14. Creator Brett LaMont Holbrook on March 7, 2012

      Missing backer name: Brett LaMont Holbrook

    15. Creator David Walters on March 6, 2012

      misspelled as "David Walters". Should be "C. David Walters", but I'm too gutted if it doesn't change.

    16. Creator Michael Vinarcik on March 6, 2012

      Missing Name: Michael Vinarcik

    17. Creator Björn Von Knorring on March 6, 2012

      Missing name; Bjorn von Knorring. Although not very important though. At least compared with that I REALLY want the game;-)

    18. Creator Nate on March 6, 2012

      Missing - Nathaniel Milbrath

    19. Creator Anthony on March 6, 2012

      Missing Name - Anthony Baldassar

    20. Creator Thomas Gore on March 6, 2012

      My name is missing, as well: Thomas Gore. But if the publisher is making waves about fitting all the names in the rulebook, I won't be bothered if mine gets cut. No worries.

    21. Creator Todd on March 6, 2012

      My name is mispelled as well. "Todd Lang" is correct. The current spelling "Todd Liang" is incorrect.


    22. Creator Chris Sessoms on March 6, 2012

      My name isn't on the list. It is Chris Sessoms. Thanks :)

    23. Creator Jeffrey on March 6, 2012

      My name is actually spelled "Jeffrey Speer", not "Spear"

    24. Creator Timothy Goddard on March 6, 2012

      I mentioned this on the BGG thread, but I'm missing--go with "Timothy Goddard" please.
