Greatings Commanders,

Shipments status

Look, that was the first palettes to leave the warehouse earlier this week. In other words, we have started the shipments. Work flow is fine and efficient, Iello makes a very good job.

First rewards ready to go.
First rewards ready to go.

Rewards outside the EU have been sent first (this week and until next Monday the 16th) because of customs digital registration that oblige us to send them without delay after transmission of the files. Starting next Monday, we will send rewards within EU.

Some of you have already received their rewards, especially in the USA. If it is not the case don’t panic. In any case, wait after the 24th of July, and contact Fedex for more information.

In average, you’ll receive 3 parcels (it might change as much as orders change) : 

  • Genesis box,
  • Expansions and eventually a play mat,
  • Stretch-goals and eventually a play mat.

Campaign and Player Aid

I had a little problem with the stuff printed in Europe (the Campaign Book and the Player Aid). I decided to not postponed the shipping for that reason. The shipping of these items will be made separately in the coming weeks. Sorry for that, it gives you the time to get familiar before starting playing campaigns.

Now Canada Friendly

We announced that this project is EU and US friendly, and it is the case. Because of the number of rewards, I decided to include also Canada. Enjoy guys.

Battle Report Competition

Now that you are receiving the game, we invite you to a little competition, opened to all those who are registered for this campaign (including late pledgers).

The winner will get eternal online fame and one GIGANTIC PLAY MAT made by our friends at plateauxdejeux.com. It is huge : 180x90cm (6x3 ft), with 105 squares and an immersive frame. It is perfect to organize massive battles (up to 8 or 10 players !). The quality is the same as the Orbit and Deep Space play mat you already know (plateauxdejeux.com would say it is better of course ;).

We use one for our demonstrations. Yours is a brand new.

How to participate ?

1 - Write a battle report : it can be a video, a short story, a comics, an animation, an article, anything you want. Just be creative and report a game of Fleet Commander.

2 - Share it online : on BGG, a forum, FaceBook, Youtube. It has to be accessible by anyone on the web (we will share the link). Don’t forget to tell us where it is of course. The safiest way is an email to contact at Capsicum Games.

3 - On the 1st of October, we will choose around 5 of our favorites : it is the non democratic part of the competition … sorry, but it is to avoid spam.

4 - The community of the pledgers vote : 1 vote for each individual who participate to this campaign (including late pledgers). For information we have 1625 individuals registered. The author of the battle report who get the most votes wins the Giant Play Mat. It will be send to him free of charge.

I Hope you’ll enjoy to participate and to follow all the nice things that will happen ! We will.

Next Update

When all shipments will be successful, I will come back to you. Please note that I write sometime « mini-updates » on the comments here.

A mountain of our games still to be shipped.

Salutations Commander,

Livraisons

Regardez, c'étaient les premières palettes à quitter l'entrepôt plus tôt cette semaine. En d'autres termes, nous avons commencé les expéditions. Le flux de travail est bon et efficace, Iello fait un excellent job.

Premières récompenses prêtes à être expédiées.
Premières récompenses prêtes à être expédiées.

Les récompenses en dehors de l'UE ont été envoyées en premier (cette semaine, et jusqu'au lundi 16) à cause de l'enregistrement numérique douanier qui nous oblige à les envoyer sans délai après la transmission des fichiers. À partir de lundi prochain, nous enverrons des récompenses au sein de l'UE.

Certains d'entre vous ont déjà reçu leurs récompenses, surtout aux États-Unis. Si ce n'est pas le cas, ne paniquez pas. Dans tous les cas attendez le 24 juillet et contactez Fedex pour plus d'informations.

En moyenne, vous recevrez 3 colis (leurs contenus peut changer autant que vos commandes):

  • La boîte de Genesis
  • Les extensions et éventuellement un tapis de jeu,
  • Les stretch-goals et éventuellement un tapis de jeu. 

Campagne et Aide au joueur

Nous avons eu un petit problème avec les livrets imprimés en Europe (le livret de campagne et l'aide au joueur). J'ai décidé de ne pas différer l'expédition pour cette raison. La livraison sera effectuée séparément dans les prochaines semaines. Désolé, cela vous donne le temps de vous familiariser avant de commencer à jouer aux campagnes.

Maintenant le CANADA

Nous avons annoncé que ce projet est amical de l'UE et des États-Unis, et c'est le cas. J'ai décidé d'inclure aussi le Canada, en raison du nombre de récompenses à y envoyer. J'espère que vous apprécierez.

Jeu Concours - Rapport de Bataille

Maintenant que vous recevez les jeux, nous vous invitons à une petite compétition ouverte à tous ceux qui sont inscrits à cette campagne (y compris les Late Pledgers).

Le tapis géant de plateauxdejeux.com

 Le gagnant obtiendra une éternelle renommée et un tapis de jeu géant réalisé par nos amis chez plateauxdejeux.com. Il est énorme : 180x90cm, avec 105 secteurs et un cadre immersif. C'est parfait pour organiser des batailles massives jusqu'à 8 ou 10 joueurs ! La qualité est identique à celle des tapis Orbit et Deep Space que vous connaissez déjà (plateauxdejeux.com dira que c'est une meilleure qualité bien entendu ;).

Nous nous servons de ce tapis pour les festivals. Le votre sera tout neuf.

Comment participer?

1 - Écrivez un rapport de bataille : il peut s'agir d'une vidéo, d'une petite nouvelle, d'une bande dessinée, d'une animation, d'un article, de tout ce que vous voulez. Soyez créatif et parlez d'une partie de Fleet Commander.

2 - Partagez-le en ligne : sur BGG, un forum, FaceBook, Youtube. Il doit être accessible par n'importe qui sur le Web (nous partagerons le lien). N'oubliez pas de nous dire où c'est bien sûr. La manière la plus sûre est un courrier électronique à contact à Capsicum Games.

3 - Le 1er octobre, nous choisirons environ 5 de nos favoris : c'est la partie non démocratique de la compétition ... désolé, mais c'est pour éviter le spam.

4 - Le vote de la communauté : 1 vote pour chaque personne ayant commandé lors de la campagne (y compris les retardataires). Pour information, nous avons 1625 personnes enregistrées. L'auteur du rapport de bataille qui obtient le plus de votes gagne le tapis géant.

J'espère que vous apprécierez de participer et de suivre toutes les belles choses qui se produiront ici :)

Prochaine mise à jour

Lorsque tous les envois seront couronnés de succès, je reviendrai ici. Notez que j'écris parfois «mini-mises à jour» sur les commentaires ici.

Une montagne de nos jeux qui reste à expédier.

      Got my stuff in today. Never received any tracking numbers for these though, so don't worry if you guys haven't got tracking numbers. The packages are on their way.

      I received my copies today , since I travel in my occupation, my roommates told me today. Now can't wait to have some time off to enjoy and share this game with my friends.

      I just got my packages here in Switzerland. However, the base game seems missing. I only got avatar, salvation, pirates, forge and the ks box..... what happened here. Please help

      Thanks Jeff "Great Cane of Doom"™ Saxton, it looks like I'm getting 2/3rds of it tomorrow in oregon, while one part is in Tennessee...

    9. Webkeeper on July 13

      Someone in Malaysia just got his pledge yesterday, so I guess I'll just have to be patient and wait ....

    10. Jeff "Great Cane of Doom"™ Saxton on July 13

      For those in the USA, head over to FedEx and sign up for their "FedEx Delivery Manager". Once you register (it's free) then your tracking data will appear if it is now in the system.

      @Capsicum; are there plans to reprint the Orbit or Deep Space playmats? Still can't find them retail, and didn't see they were available in the KS until after the end of the survey.

    12. Jeff Thompson on July 13

      By what date should everyone in the US receive a shipment notification and tracking number? I am in the US and have not received one yet. I apologize for my confusion, and thank you for any help!

      I also need a tracking number!

    14. Ken Smith on July 13

      You said and I quote "Some of you have already received their rewards, especially in the USA. If it is not the case don’t panic. In any case, wait after the 24th of July, and contact Fedex for more information." Just a heads up unless you have a tracking number or shipping number FedEx will have zero ability to tell you when it where is your expected parcels due to arrive. Myself and possibly others have never received a email from FedEx , so we have no numbers or way to identify said parcels.

      That mat is so big, it shows the curvature of space.
