Have a question?
Good news everyone!
At least 2 month delay in delivery?
@EvenOdds, Guilliamus, and Dave: We hope you'll find some exciting answers in the latest update! :)
Houston, we have a problem.
So, any news from the printers?
Any updates on the player mats? Is it a 'yay' or 'nay'?
@MAJBrown22: At this moment, we are still waiting to get an updated quote from the printer with correct specifications that we have ordered. We've received several quotes already, but always with incorrect specifications, so we really really hope that the upcoming one will be spot on and include everything we want (and nothing extra). I'm sorry that I have to repeat myself by saying that as soon as we will get the correct quote and be scheduled to print, we'll be able to estimate the dates for shipping and delivery. We'll send an update the day we receive a confirmation that Interkosmos has entered the printing queue.
Got an updated shipping window? I'm getting a September/October vibe.
thank you! I will wait until your update and report back to you then!
Thank you for letting us know that you are planning to move to the new address. The shipping date isn't still known as the printing company hasn't put us in the printing queue. We will post an update dedicated to shipping as soon as the printing company gives us specific info on when Interkosmos will be printed. You can decide after that to change your address or not depending on the announced shipping date.
If you will need, you can change the address yourself in the survey. When you log in to the Kickstarter website, you can then follow the link below that will show all the projects that you have supported so far.
There you can click on Space Race - Interkosmos and in the popup window select the survey and change the address. Let me know if it does not work for you.
@Michal Hi, i will move to a new home at 1.August but my old address will be available until the end of August. Is it better to change my address to the new one? And how can i do that? Thanks in advance!
@Dave: Great to hear Space Race is your most played card game! Interkosmos will give you more options to focus on (Achievements) and more combo building possibilities through the new abilities. But yes, the solo video is something we will definitely consider once Interkosmos is out of the printer.
@EvenOdds: Don't worry, it's not too late. :) You can change the address right until the point we'll start shipping. Glad your group enjoys the game, that's always very nice to hear! :)
Hey, guys, I updated my shipping address today. I hope it is not too late?
Played the base game again last night, it's one of the group's favourite games, can't wait for the expansion!
Same here, feeling anxious how the expansion affects solo play. I do enjoy a lot the base game playing solo, my most played card game in my collection.
@Jayson: That's a great idea! We will definitely consider it as soon as we'll have a production copy of Interkosmos in our hands. :)
I really hope you guys consider posting a new video showing a solo playthrough with the orginal base game and with the expansion. I'm having issues understanding some of the nuances in gameplay based of the original solo rules and feel manty of us could benefit from watching a playthru from you guys directly.
Thanks for your consideration
@Sebastian Thanks for pointing out! I fixed the file permissions, the Book of Scenarios should be available via the link again (boardcubator.com/games/interkosmos/rules).
I miss the book of scenarios in the google drive link :(
@Alf and @Andrea: Thank you so much for the suggestions and especially for the explanations! It really helps us go far outside the box of our previous ideas. I'm looking forward when to talking about all of these in the office. It seems that now the problem will be choosing just one for each of the new Breakthrough types. :)
I think that the first type of breakthrough could be called "Base Research" (Ricerca di Base): it is not specific but it is the very foundation of every other specialized researches. without base research it could not be possible to achieve any goals in specifics matters.
The second breakthrough could be called "Dedicated Research": a dedicated research is focused on narrow and specific objectives; you can achieve goals but in the very specific objectives and in no other side objectives.
For the "New Breakthrough Types" my name suggestion is "Gravitas" both to indicate the importance of it but also sort of indicating the breakthrough from the gravity hold.
Thanks for the encouragement, Jacob! :) There's actually a large pile of news comming in an update very soon. :) A little spoiler – all of them are good. :))
Looking forward to hearing news about Interkosmos - keep up the good work, everybody :D
Great, thanks for the little update :-)
Of course, it is (only) a (cool) add-on .
Hi StormsoN: Jan and Marek are actually going to see a specialised manufacturer in the Czech Republic tomorrow to see what would be possible to produce. We are still trying to find a suitable factory that is local so we can oversee the production of the playmat. However, finishing Interkosmos is still priority #1 so the playmats (as well as anything else) is not our primary focus now. :)
Hey Team Space Race, any news on the play mat topic ? :-)
@Gabriel, Kah: Great to hear the landing reports! Let us know how the game plays when you have a chance to try it out.
@Kalle, David: Thank you for the kind words. :) It's amazing to hear that your experience with the campaign/the team is good - it gives us the energy we need. :) I think I'm repeating myself when I say that it's a pleasure to work with such a great community that has gathered around Space Race.
Received my copy of base game in Singapore. Thank you !
@Andrew: Thank you for comment. Don't worry, you will get your package. We work on it. Please check your private message for more info.
Hmm somehow my post office didn’t try and deliver, my tracking shows my package was returned to amazon.
Can I get a resend?
@Robin: Sorry to hear that. No problem to send you technology control cards 1, 3 and 6. Please, confirm, that no other cards are missing except these three. I'm gonna send you package after that.
Evening :) loving the original game! This weekend we noticed (first time playing with four) the technologie control cards are missing from the private space agency. Is there a way we would be able to receive these as well? Happy easter!
Got the base game in Cancún, Mexico. I will most likely try it until Friday. So excited!
Hi everyone. I just wanted to stop back and share a word of praise for the Boardcubator team. I had a freakish thing happen to my package (USPS). Despite the fact that it was no fault of Boardcubator, they generously agreed to send me a replacement without hesitation. I'm eagerly awaiting my package straight from the Czech Republic! Thanks, Boardcubator, for going above and beyond my expectations. Cheers!
I contacted UPS I-Parcel about these two failed deliveries. They told me that the problem was missing value information or data error on both packages...
Oh, I've been very happy with boardcubator's customer service. They've done an ace job. I realized from the beginning that this was an Amazon problem.
@Jussi, @Kalle, @Joni: We've just sent priority packages with the base game to all Finish backers. You should have a tracking number and link in your email (if you can't find it, take a look at the spam/promo folder as well). For some reason, Amazon keeps returning our packages for backers in Finland, so we sent it through a different carrier.
@Carla: Great to hear everything turned out well! :) Let us know how the game goes when you have a chance to play it. :)
@Berton: Thanks for sharing your thoughs with others on BGG! We're looking forward to reading the detailed forum post, definitely let us know when you post it. :)
Same thing happened to me. Boardcubator contacted me today and they are using other company for delivery now. I'm sure we get our games eventually. I think Boardcubator wants to help us as much as we want to get the game.
@Joni @Jussi I'm in the same boat here. Tracking shows "returning to seller" and I'm certain none of my parcels ever entered Finland. Sent email to Boardcubator on friday but no answer yet.
No luck with mine either. Tracking for the second try now shows that it is being returned to seller. I didn't receive any notifications about my package and I don't think it ever entered the country in the first place-
Did anyone get the base game delivered to Finland?
And... It's here! Looks great!
Hello again @Creator !
I published my rating and comment in BGG.
It was longer than I expected ^^
I will play and post more details on the Forum topics when I'll be ready !
@Harris, @Timothy: Great! Thanks for letting us know! :)
@Jason: Take a look at Update #8 - it has a video that shows the customisation as well as pictures with sleeved cards. (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2063846379/space-race-interkosmos/posts/2053948)
just received the base game yesterday, Massachusetts USA.
Just received tracking information. Delivery as soon as tomorrow! Vermont, USA.
got mine, now i'm curious how i'll need to cut the insert to get the expansion to fit inside the base game box when the expansion arrives
Thank you for all the new landing reports! :) Let us know how the game plays when you have a chance to try it out! :)
@Berton: It would be great if you could rank the game on BGG (you can write your thoughts in the comment attached to the rating). Also, you can start a discussion with feedback/thoughts on the BGG forum for Space Race (we're watching BGG regularly).
@Matthew: It's great to hear your friend enjoys the game so much! However, as we mentioned in the latest update, the base games are all gone from the late pledge website (it is still possible to get everything else, though).
@Steven: The estimated delivery for the expansion is in July. We have pulished an update that clarifies that today.
@Joni: Please see the email I sent you from firstname.lastname@example.org.
@Carla: No, you shouldn't. I've also sent you an email from email@example.com
@JKP: Glad you like the wooden rocket! :) As Alan mentions, the insert is customizable so you can just remove few of the dividers to fit everything in perfectly. There is an Update #8 about how to do it, and you can find the information in the resource section of boardcubator.com as well.
Hello @Creator !
I have received my game 13th February, one month ago so.
I managed to play 4 games : one with 4 players, two with 3 players and one with 2 players.
Where can I post feedback and discuss with you and others players ? BGG or you have another website you prefer ?
Confirming delivery here in Las Vegas today.
@JKP - See update #8 (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2063846379/space-race-interkosmos/posts/2053948).
Basically you remove some of the little dividers so that all the cards fit but not separated so much.
