By Land, Air & Sea!
So the manufacturing process has been totally completed and the games are now in transit.
- Agility, a fulfillment center in China, has picked up the non-EU international orders and is preparing to ship those games out now. From what I've been told this usually takes them about 1-2 weeks. Given that these games are going to be traveling to countries all over the place, I've had them double wrap all of them just to be careful.
- The EU games are being air shipped to Stella International in Germany, another fulfillment center. They should be arriving fairly soon. I've read that Stella is pretty fast with their turn around, so I wouldn't be surprised if the EU games were out before the end of the month.
- The rest of the games are being freight shipped to Norfolk VA and will be arriving there on February 4th. A truck will then deliver them to my place, where I'll turn around and mail out all the US copies. I'll then be taking a dray trip to Canada so I can mail those games out from within the country (this is surprisingly the cheapest and fastest way to do this). So it looks like we're actually going to hit our promised delivery date, which I'm pretty excited about!
On another note, one of our backers, Maxime Bechu, has translated the special cards into French (thanks Maxime!). In the next day or so I'll edit the cards and post a link in the comments section of this update with the translation (I'll also post it and the Spanish translation to BGG in the next couple of days too).
Alright, thats it for now. I hope that everyone is off to a great new year!
