a busy night ahead of us

Took a lot of arm twisting to get a truck to come today - but it looks like I should be getting games between 5-6 tonight. Been told to have lots of help to get them off the truck - we live on a hill and the truck may not be able to use its lift gate.

2000 games - about 3lbs each that is 6000 lbs of games that will have to tossed out the back of the truck, and hauled up our driveway that is over 50 feet long and rises about 15 feet.

Good news is that this gives me all weekend to get boxes packed up. I am going to try to get all the USPS packages for the US done and sent out on Saturday - that will give them a fair shot of getting to people well before Thanksgiving. Then I'll work on International and FEDEX packages - FEDEX arrives on Monday to make their pick-up, and any USPS packages that aren't ready by end of day Saturday will go out on Monday as well.

Good news is that Oakland is the USPS hub for northern California - and it usually takes 2 days for these priority packages to get to other major centers, and 3 days to more rural areas. So I hope that most people in the US will get their games and goodies ahead of Thanksgiving weekend.

USPS priority is being used for most of the packages (I have 350+ flat rate medium boxes, 50+ large and another 300 boxes that are USPS priority but not flat rate all ready to go). FEDEX is being used on all orders of three or more games in the US including orders to store - 150 boxes.

To be honest I am not even sure that this all going to fit into the garage and still give me room to pack - but I'll find a way to make it work.

      Fedex status just updated -- looks like it should be here in time for Thanksgiving! I'm sure you had a crazy weekend - the hard work in getting these out is appreciated.

      USPS just delivered mine (Boston area)! Awesome it made its way across the country so fast on a weekend.

      Looking forward to playing this with family later in the week.o

      Super excited! Thanks for the updates. I think our family is going to host a Black Friday gaming day and I'd love to have this in the mix. I haven't gotten a shipping notice yet, but with so many games, I'm hoping it's just that they haven't all been gotten to. :)

      Thank you Travis for keeping us up to date with these stuff. To be honest I'm very impatient and constantly check on my mail notice to see if there were any changes, but I know you have a lot of work ahead of you.

      I'll try to wait patiently like a good boy. Again, thank you... my friends and I can't wait to get our hands on this game!

      Have a great weekend!

      Travis, you inspire me! Wishing I would have bought THREE copies now instead of only TWO, but once this hits retail, I'll probably be grabbing another one. It's this kind of energy, passion, dedication and COMMUNICATION that makes being a backer so rewarding! Enjoy the busy weekend!

      We appreciate all the effort, I can't wait for mine to show up.

    15. Thom Goodsell on November 18, 2011

      A little sad that higher-level supporters will get theirs later (due to the FedEx shipping pickup), but mostly just glad I can expect copies soon. I'm on the wrong coast or I'd also offer to help pack.
