I wish to post a quick update. I got many requests to describe the content you guys should get with your SG rewards, so you can decide which shipping method best suits you.
So, I decided to post my very first Vlog - an unboxing video in which I will go over everything you will get and some extra stuff we made just for you.
Please be kind - I am an avid editor, English is my second language and it is my first video post, so try to be constructive in your posts and I promise to keep making more videos for you guys (a full walkthrough of the rules might be the next in line).
Due to the fact that only 300+ backers have responded to our latest survey - I will extend the survey time period for an extra 14 days.
The production of the extra expansions and rewards is finished!!!
We are scheduling a freight shipment to our warehouse so we can start shipping ASAP.
In order to ship to your updated address – I have created a new survey.
Please enter in the link at the bottom of this page and fill in your details.
I will lock the survey on the 25th of March to start preparing the labels for final shipment.
Extra Shipping costs – We need your help!
As I mentioned in my recent updates – I wish to let all backers know that we are well over our budget and we have invested a lot of private money to complete and fulfill our obligations.
I therefore ask for your kind support in covering these extra shipping and packing costs to your home address.
I’ve added a few options in the survey, so each backer can decide how much he wants to spend (they are very affordable options).
After completing the survey we will send you a confirmation mail with payment details (PayPal).
I hope you can understand our side of the business.
I wanted to update you on the progress we made in the last month as soon as I got positive news.
Stretch Goals Production:
We just finished the final proofing phase (color and matching card stock) and the production is underway.
Our printer says that the production should be completed in 20 days. I surely hope they can manage our deadline expectations so we can have finally some final images of those sought out expansions.
I will update with more images as we get more up-to-date information.
More than 100 backers agreed to settle with our offer of compensation while many backers have opted to wait for the long awaited refund.
We just began shipping all rewards to our US backers. We are forwarding rewards to our partners in Canada, Germany and Australia so we can ship them to you locally and save you money on taxes and other related fees.
US fulfillment will be done by the end of this week as we already have confirmed receptions.
The rest of the world fulfillment will take between 9-25 days, depending on your location.
The backers who filled out the latest survey will get a shipping note to their e-mails with tracking information.
Once we finish fulfillment we can move on to a brighter future. I am sure we all wish to move on from this unfortunate turnaround.
I wanted to say thank you to all of the backers who have always been supportive and believed my true way. I needed that support as it was not easy to get me to this point.
I wish to update you on our quest to fulfill your rewards.
Expansions pack update:
We just finished proofing the colors and print quality for the printing plates (photo attached).
These cards will be included in the expansion pack that each backer will receive.
We are now waiting for the actual cards so we can compare cardstock and die-cuts and make sure the cards fit the original game components.
I know there have been many delays but I want to make sure that you get the expansions you are waiting for.
I will update once we have the first print run ready.
Meanwhile we are proofing the rest of the printed matter – the new big punched board.
I will share more as we get closer to finishing the very first print on those as well.
I wish to thank the 190+ backers who replied to our last survey and helped us to understand where we are with regards to fulfillment.
The results are not good, here are the facts we got from you:
It is clear that EFS, even though they got paid – both by us and by many backers – only fulfilled 11 miniature sets.
That’s correct – only 11 backers have confirmed reception!!!
I thought the situation was bad – but not that bad!
Recent emails I got from other backers lead me to conclude that Mr. Mich Leach and EFS have no intent to deliver what you paid them for.
I am still responsible for your funds and I will go on and sue EFS for the sum they have been paid.
As for the next important question, most of you answered that they wish to get a refund. This has been answered by a slight majority of 95 against 86, which will determine our way to act once we get the funds back from EFS.
In the meanwhile, I will send you all a personal mail about a nice way to compensate you guys BEFORE we get the funds back as it might take a lot of time and efforts for us to claim your money.
Again, these unfortunate events affected both you – the wonderful backers that you are – as well as myself and our entire line of great products.
I hope that we can move past this with our final stage of fulfillment and move on to a better future and happier gaming experience.
