Have a question?
@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 email@example.com.
@Carla: No, you shouldn't. I've also sent you an email from firstname.lastname@example.org
@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.
Hi Jan! Just played tonight and my friend loved it so much that he’d like to buy. Is there a late pledge or extra copies available?
Base game came yesterday. Looks great. Coolest first player marker on the planet! I really like that foam insert but I'm not seeing how the expansion will fit in it.
Just got my tracking number here for California USA. Estimated delivery date is March 13th.
Just got mine. Going to try a run tonight.
@Steven Thomas Interkosmos isn't estimated to be delivered until July.
The base game was already created so could be shipped straight away but Interkosmos has to be manufactured first.
Still waiting in Vancouver, BC. Should I be worried?
I received my base game but have not yet got interkosmos
Game has landed safely last week. Can't wait to get a crack at it :)
Base game still missing! Finland here.
Virginia, USA. Tracking number received a few minutes ago.
@Backers from USA: We will post an update next week. The delay was caused by the fact that the packages for the USA were rescheduled to a different airplane than they were supposed to fly with. However, the great news is that the games are already being moved from Amazon to the final delivery companies, so you should start receiving tracking numbers any day now.
@Dominik: The Interkosmos expansion delivery is estimated at July. In this wave, we were delivering just the base games.
Hello, sould backers in Germany have their copies now?
Game landed in Perth AU this morning. Looking forward to getting it on the table tonight
Well it seems like we are still waiting here in the US sandwiched between Canada and Mexico.
Received, in Mexico City. A game night awaits me.
The quality is incredible and I love the art of the game.
Greetings from Mexico.
