The Awful Orphanage is Now in Production!

Posted by Workhouse Games (Creator)

Yes, you read that right ... on Wednesday the 17th October at 11am we virtually pressed the button(s) to begin full production of The Awful Orphanage

This morning at around 9am GMT all of the paper products had been completed which is 4 days ahead of schedule! Now we are casting all of the miniatures and creating the plastic trays, dice and the base caps too! 

Here are some photo's, that make us deliriously happy!

So, what this means is that we're well on track to finish production mid-November.

Here are some photo's of the samples we've received so you can see examples of what you're getting ...

This means we also now know our numbers! 

We're delighted to announce that we have some copies of the game and the Stragglers boxed set available to buy on our website ... right ... now! These are in severely limited numbers as we are keeping some back for the inevitable instances where the delicate hands of postal couriers decide to play a game of basketball with parcels!

      @Karim ... he likes to give gifts ... but he'll need "something" first.

      It looks like it's going to be an Awfully Awesome New Year's and Santa will be out of business. There's a new Man in town!

      @Ian ... that is definitely the plan!!

      Just ordered the stragglers set. Looking forward to this arriving. Diorama will hopefully arrive soon.

      Also the game looks as though it’s coming together nicely and maybe get it earlier than expected 🤔😁😈

      Yes Lisa ... you can use the discount code THEHOLLOWEARTH but don't tell everyone! ... Wait, what do you mean I've posted this as a comment. Oh balls :P

      So if I ordered the second round of the stragglers I should be in contact?

      @Art - that has already begun shipping, we're packing each one here at Workhouse HQ and trying our best not to eat the Humbugs as we go!

      @Art It should ship sooner.

      Awesome update. Just curious, will the diorama ship before the game or will it all ship together? I'm really looking forward to painting that scene.

      Well make sure you tell us all about it!

      We have grand plans to play the game ad nauseum during my son's college break in Jan, so any earlier means all that happens!

      @Kevin, thanks buddy! We can't wait for you to get it either ... we're working on it shipping earlier than Feb!! Who needs sleep!?!

      My wife and kids are so stoked for this. Jan/Feb can't come soon enough. Keep up the great work!
