Weekly update / Stamped boxes

Hi everyone

We thought last week was a stressfull hard working week,but this week it seems that, stress wise,every day has surpassed the last.

The stress is fuelled by dealing with the logistics companies,

Don't panic! we have only been delayed by a day or two.

We have had a few minor set backs with a courier which shouldn't delay the shipping by too long,we have been reassured that everything will still be shipped by the end of the month,so please don't worry.

As far as the enquiry about the tracking numbers, we know for sure that 60% will have tracking numbers. as regards the other 40% we are still waiting to confirm, as soon as we know we will put out an update.

We are all so excited that the games will be with you all very soon.

Once again all of the team can only thank you for your support and understanding in what you know has been a monumental task and a large learning curve for us.

Boring Update

Hi Everyone

We’ve been working hard all week, and there are no big changes in plans, so as outlined in the last update we are expecting to ship out in the week commencing 21st, (a week Monday). If you need to change your address or make alternate arrangements, please do so as soon as possible. Just send us a private message on kickstarter and we will be able to amend your details or help you make other arrangements. 

I sort of want to say sorry for being so boring right now - we are all absolutely worn out every day by the amount we have to do at the moment. We wish we could be more fun, and be engaging with the community a lot more, drawing some countdown illustrations and getting all hyped, but there has just been so much to do each day that we literally don’t have time or energy for anything else. Like today, I have been 100% rushed all day organising things, and now it’s late and I have just enough time to write this update before bed and then starting over again. But our thinking right now is that we need to push on as hard and fast as we can, and then once everything is out we can start having fun with you guys again and get a bit creative and celebrate. I just realise that at the moment we are just a bunch of boring worn out office/warehouse workers, and I know you guys deserve more than that, so I’m sorry about that! 

We are still trying to find out from our different fulfillers/couriers if all territories will get tracking numbers, still waiting on a reply on that as of today, so will let you know next week. So not too much to report really, just that we are a week closer to the goal, which must be good.

As always thank you everyone for your support and encouragement, you’re really great.

Weekly Update - Final Push

Hi everyone

I hope you’ve all had a good Christmas and New Year. It was nice to have a little time off, but after recovering from New Year we’re back to work now, and we’re eager to get everything finished.

The final stage is for us to pallet games up in the correct bundles, and then send them out. We are going to continue doing that over the next week, and then we are giving ourselves the week after that as a bit of a buffer before we do the final send out, so we can make sure the pick-up of all the deliveries are done correctly. This means we are expecting games to leave us in the week commencing Monday 21st, so two weeks on Monday. Games should be with you pretty quick after that. We will try and pin down more accurate location specific dates, based on what we are told in the coming two weeks by the distributors we are working with. So ‘last week of January’ is about as accurate a guess as we can give right now, but we will zero in more when we can.

If that timing causes any major trouble for you in any way (i.e. you’re moving house that week) then please get in touch with me via a private message on kickstarter, and we will be able to work something out. The simplest solution is that we could hold your package back a bit until you are ready, or of course just arrange a change of address to send it to a friend’s house. Either way, just get in touch and we can sort it out.

It’s really good to see light at the end of the tunnel, and although we’ve still got a lot of work to do and it’s all of the stressful and complex variety, we’re getting so excited to finally have things out to you. Thanks you so much for coming along with us on this project, you’ve all been amazing. Really great. I don’t want to go into the big thank-you’s yet, because there is still a lot of work to do, so let’s just get this last bit out of the way and finally play our game!

Merry Christmas

As mentioned last week (gosh, that went so fast…) we’re having a quiet week with family for Christmas, and normal service will resume next week. We hope you’re all having a lovely holiday period, and wish you a happy new year!

weekly update - Christmas time

Hi everyone

As I’m sure you appreciate, because of the holidays, this week and the next week of December are really difficult times to make any big meaningful strides in a large project such as this. As I’ve said before, it’s annoying that we have managed to wind up with the Christmas slowdown coinciding with this last little bit of the project, and we are sorry about that. We are so close to being done and so want to just power through this last leg! So the forced pit-stop of Christmas is less than ideal.

However, the way we are looking at it is that we can use this time to make sure all our ducks are in a row, and then jump into January all refreshed and ready to blast out the last little bit of the project with renewed enthusiasm. So we are going to spend Christmas like generals pushing pieces around on a map, planning the big offensive, and then start January all fresh-faced and ready for the final push!

Thank you, again, everybody, for your continued support, and I hope you all have a good Christmas.
