Last week was an incredibly busy one for us at Foxtrot Games! The main shipment of games arrived at our fulfillment company's warehouse in New Hampshire on Wednesday. We are incredibly thankful to Game Salute for turning everything around so quickly, and we are happy to announce that they have mailed out all* the rewards for backers in North and South America! You should have received an email with a tracking number that you can track online, and we expect most of the rewards to arrive this week—in time for the holidays!
If you have not yet received your rewards or an email notification with a tracking number, please let us know as soon as possible.
* We have a tiny number of rewards that have not yet been mailed for various reasons, but we've been in contact with those backers. You know who you are!
VIDEO TUTORIAL / GAME PLAY EXAMPLES
As you wait for your reward, you may want to brush up on the rules. You can find the manual on our main Kickstarter page and in Update #15. We also want to remind you about the excellent Relic Expedition - How To Play video by Rodney Smith of Watch It Played. We know that many people learn games better through a video than through a manual, and we are excited that this great tutorial is available:
Rodney has since released two more videos, walking through part of a full game of Relic Expedition with his son Luke. (The rest of the game will be available in future episode(s).) This should give you a really good idea of how turns work and how the game progresses. Here are links to the two videos so far:
VERIFY YOUR REWARDS
When your rewards arrive, please verify that you have everything. Please look back at Update #21: Reward Details for the list of everything that should be included in your package and some helpful reminders. (Don't throw away your Wild Die by mistake! Set aside the expansions until you have played the base game at least a few times!)
If anything in your rewards package is missing or incorrect or damaged, please let us know! (We have seen and heard a couple rare cases of a reference card missing or a relic token damaged.) We have extra copies of everything, and we can get replacement parts out to you as quickly as possible.
What a wonderful experience this has been for us! Your continued support and enthusiasm has carried us through the full production process, and the positive feedback we have received so far has been so rewarding. We are extremely excited for all of you to get a chance to play the game soon.
We'd love to hear your feedback after you receive your rewards: it would be great to receive a private message here, an email at [firstname.lastname@example.org], a comment on the Kickstarter campaign, or a rating/review on our BoardGameGeek page. Thank you again for backing this project and for make this game a reality! We could not have done this without you, and we will always be grateful to you for that.
