Hey guys!

Did you get a chance to stop by our Gen Con booth or attend our party? If you did, did you check out the sample copies we had!?!?!

 There's also a video from Bower!!!

 
In case you didn't get a chance to get to Gen Con, the samples will also appear at several events over the next month. Check our schedule to see where our show team will be!

Let's see.... *checks notes* I had some other stuff here.... OH! OH YEAH! The games are safely loaded in the container, and our freight company has taken possession of it!!! We still have to wait for our ship to arrive, but we've been given a sail date at the beginning of September, which gives us an arrival date around the beginning of October. This means:

The Pledgemanager will be closed on September 10!!! You will be able to make address changes after that date, but no more pre-orders or changes to orders will be available, so take a look and make sure your pledge is set! We will be sending out reminder emails next week as well.

Fulfillment for backers in the US/Canada/Mexico begins as soon as the container is received. Kickstarter backers are always the first to be shipped! We will be double-checking your shipping address with you in the second half of September. Product is also on the way to our international fulfillment center in the UK and they will begin fulfillment for the EU and international as soon as that arrives.

Once we are sailing, we will post with a link so you can keep an eye on the ship!

*flips page* The production team has passed along the updated rulebook files for Winter Romance and Doki Doki Beach Volleyball! Download the PDFs:

*checks notes again* What else, what else. Ohhhhh yes! I've been working with the printer and the design team to get the art book just right, and it is on the presses! We got a bunch of pictures!!!

Have a great week everyone, talk to you soon!

      @Allan Meeks - Most everyone who pledged to receive their name in the rulebook has been added. If you feel that there may be a mistake with your name, please DM us so we can help you in more detail.

      @Jessiy - you should be able to log into your Pledge Manager and correct that information. If you have difficulty with that please DM us.

      What if my address has changed from since I backed this project where do I change that ?

      looked over the rule book, will all Merry Maid and Butler Blizzard have their names in the book?

      @Allan Meeks - our design team did an amazing job and the printer has worked with us to make sure the finished product is a real eye-catcher!

      @Jeffry Welfare - we have been looking at various fulfillment partners for this project and have made it clear that past failures are not an option this time. We have been very frustrated with the lack of quality control for international backers and are trying to be sure that this time is a smoother deployment.

      I hope there is tighter control over your international peoples service levels. Too often nowdays it seems the fulfillment partners over promise and don't deliver (until they decide they feel like it a few months later).

      I love the color on the pages.
