Have a question?
Yeahh i received my mail but i am afraid with the no name in the address !!
@Chris Warr 'shell out'. I see what you did there ;-)
So I can see reports of UK backers of 7th Continent getting tracking notices for delivery...
@Slawek - yes... although when i click the link it says that the number cannot be found :D :P
Just got tracking on my package for the Netherlands! Can't wait :D
@Pawel F so there is hope for me as well :)
just got my tracking for Warsaw (Poland) ! .
Haven't heard anything back from Mark RE: damaged box and no insert. He's probably very busy with his university duties, but hoping to hear something back soon.
Any update on Canadian shipping?
TWITC: I'm from italy. I just received an email from QS saying my box has shipped. ETA 5-10 days
Any word on Canada? Update 2 weeks ago said they were in Buffalo, still nothing from Snakes and Lattes.
When is the arrival time for Asia?
We would appreciate it if you let us know the tracking number or schedule information.
But the tortoise might steal it so it doesn't have to shell out for a copy
I'm in the UK, and Gamesquest is one and half hours away from where I'm sat (approx. 70miles). If my game was strapped to the back of a tortoise it would get here in 9.7 days. Just saying.
Comment 3000: Yes, I also got a tracking notification. Yay!
Hope to have too my tracking notification !! (France)
I just got a tracking notification from GQ for Feudum :)
Let's see how long it takes to deliver (germany)
@Esben - exciting! Did you get this in an email or in the PostNord app? And are you sure it’s Feudum and not 7th Continent or something else?
7th Continent was bigger, will have paid more and (possibly) shouted more. I'm also awaiting another product from GQ that will now be further delayed.
At the end of the day this is something outside my control. It doesn't reduce the feeling of frustration though. Whilst Mark could be more forthcoming with information (assuming that he has any of any consequence) it isn't fair to criticise a choice he made about shipping some months ago before their reliability had been called into question to this extent.
As long as GQ eventually do deliver and do so intact, it'll be fine. If I see it in retail first it will be a disappointment, but I paid less for what I got and should have some exclusives, so personally I am not all that concerned.
I’m going to assume that no I’m in the UK has received the game (it’s been a while since I checked in on the comments)? I ask because folk in the U.K. have started receiving shipping notifications for 7th Continent and that arrived in the U.K. after Feudem and was apparently behind it in the queue at Games Quest....
Got a shipping notice for Denmark today.
I just got a tracking info for Germany. So it's finally happening.
@Mark: Please give an update on EU shipping today. Bad news is better than radio silence. As long as you keep your backers informed once a day or so by issuing a short update here in the comments, I doubt you will have any real problems with the community. I am sure you are doing everything you can to sort out EU fulfilment, but keep people in the loop, and let GQ take the blame, if they are indeed responsible. If you don’t include us, you will inevitably end up with a lot of impatient backers, as people have nowhere to direct frustrations but at you.
GamesQuest biting off more than they can chew. I'm not surprised, although I am surprised that people still work with them.
I'm not gonna get angry at Mark for doing this - after all, it is probably the easiest solution for a boardgame Kickstarter to fulfill the EU at a first glance - but I'm still sad that it's gonna take a while before it gets here.
@Mark: An update, please! Has GQ indeed started shipping Feudum, as they promised?
I am backing another campaign at the mo who used GamesQuest in the past and are promising backers they will not make the same mistake again. Itching for this game and frustrated at the delivery failure
Well my Batman Chronicles pledge is still buzzing away with updates.. and talking of Jokers, any news from Gamesquest? Nope? Didnt think so.
Mark, I'm willing to pay extra to have my pledge shipped by someone other than Games Quest. Would that be possible?
EU will not ship for months otherwise.
Rise to Nobility shipping by Games Quest started in January and its still not done (4k backers). And they are still at Rising Sun and now 7th Continent and also City of Kings (all huge).
Here's what the creators wrote:
Unfortunately, not everyone is able to enjoy the game, because some of you have not received it yet even though the fulfillment process of this campaign started more than 60 days ago.
A lot has been said about GamesQuest, and why this is happening but please understand, our hands were tied. They had everything from us, backers lists, games, time... But, in the end, our fulfillment partner failed us and we want to say again that we will not be using them for our campaign of Robin Hood and the Merry Men.
Hey there, checking in on shipping info for US. Still haven't received a tracking number! Thanks!
Bad news to all of the backers in the UK and the rest of Europe: Gamesquest just announced more three weeks delay because of the death of the last male 'northern white rhino' in Kenya. (Such a bad luck for all of us, including the rhino. We had production problems in China, delivery delay for holidays in every country where the ship passed by, snow in UK, and now this)
It's painful to see the game available in retail while so many of its backers are still in the dark about the shipping of their rewards. :(
@Peter Where you seeing these GQ update?
Hopefully my fears will prove to be unfounded but getting more and more concerned about the Gamesquest connection. I have just read the latest update for Rise to Nobility and what they are having to do for those backers who are still waiting as "Our reputation as a creator is on the line here ".
Hopefully I will be proven wrong and the shipping notices and games will start flowing out with a (virtually) seamless fulfillment process. Fingers crossed.
No shipping info here, yet. Should I be worried?
Still haven’t gotten shipping info for USA. Any idea when that will get here?
Even if Games Quest would say they started shipping, this won't actually be true. They are still shipping Rising Sun and now 7th Continent and few more Kickstarters that were further up their overloaded queue.
My best guess is May. Here's hoping I'm wrong.
Has shipping indeed started today in the EU lane?
I have a main box that came with smashed in corner. Is there anything that can be done about it?
What about europeen backers ???
@Mark: According to various updates, GQ should have started European fulfilment today. Any info on the validity of this? As today is almost over, they most know whether or not anything has been sent out. It seems GQ has quite a rep for unprecise updates, but I would expect Quartermaster to demand a premium service, as long as they are putting their name to the quality of fulfilment worldwide. If nothing has been sent out, an update with an explanation and a new timeline should be issued, as long as they claim to run a professional fulfilment service. That is their single responsibility to both you and your backers.
Hello, I am also a US backer at the $99 level and I do not have a shipping notification or the game as of this morning. Thanks.
Mark ~ I received my copy yesterday and it is gorgeous! I removed all of the tiles and placed them into the provided baggies (nice touch!) and checked out all of the other components. As my daughter is home from college (Savannah College of Art and Design) she loved the video...and while she's going to enjoy the game, according to her comments, she was also blown away by the various videos' production value...very well done indeed!
@MarkSwanson Finally had the opportunity to unbox late last night and was blown away by the production value. Amazing to see this labor love from your hand sketched pieces at Uprise Bakery, to the gorgeous game sitting on my table at home. Kudos to you!
received in Portland OR, USA yesterday.
@Martyn - per Marks comment from 3 days ago, listing all the cards, in which he indicated they should be in the BGG store soon
What’s happening about the promos we won’t have - the chalice and signet ring? Will there be a fair chance to obtain them? I’ve seen the chalice being sold for stupid money already.
@August @Tyler I messaged Mark through the KS page and he got back to me right away.
I am a US backer and still have no shipping confirmation. Any contact information to get confirmation I'll still be getting the game?
So any news about when EU shipments might start?
I am a US backer and still have no shipping confirmation. Who should I reach out to to confirm?
Put together the insert. Looks great, like everything else.
One thing when putting it together though. The pieces designed to hold player components was a bit tough to get together because the sides that slotted in were a bit too large. The ended up splitting a bit as I pushed them in.
It looks fine enough but something they might want to look into for further cuts.
