Great Rift is Here - and we are Pooped!

Posted by Matthew Sprange (Creator)

Good afternoon, fellow Travellers!

The Mongoose team are well and truly tired now - the Great Rift and its adventures arrived at our offices this morning which meant (joy!) we got to carry them all up our stairs!

The Mongoosers were not too happy with me for that, but we ordered in an American Burger delivery, and the northern fries (with cheese and gravy) and butterscotch milkshakes seemed to smooth everything out...

 So, there they are!

We will begin shipping sets out tomorrow, though it will likely be next week before the last of them are through the door. We have not had word yet on the North American sets but they should just be a few days away, and our warehouse there is likely to turn them around within a single day or so - there is every chance they will overtake us here in the UK!

Anyway, start watching for Postie coming your way. The Great Rift will soon be ready for your exploration...

      Received in the wild and distant region known as the West Midlands. Excellent, and nice that the three adventures fit into the box.

      Mark: Probably about as much as Mexicans would regarding Mexican food made in the US :) (I once met a Mexican at Gen Con who proceeded to talk at some length on this very subject...).

      On another note, the first sets are away, with the first of the UK, German, French and Swedish sets off. More to follow over the next few days!

      I wonder what an American Burger is and if those of us who live in the states would recognize it.

      Awesome, and you should know, "northern fries" are pronounced "poutine" like routine. A French Canadian specialty.

      Hopefully we get copies in time for Easter.

      Butterscotch shakes sound yummy!

      northern fries (with cheese and gravy)
      That sounds like Canadian / Quebecois Poutine
