      ahh ok cheers Derek

      Gary doesn't respond to messages, especially on here. We're still waiting for his other Kickstarter to come through as well. Sorry to hear that you never got your cards, Jay.

    3. Jay Jones on July 31, 2015

      great got ripped off again on kickstarter woo

    4. Jay Jones on December 2, 2013

      This is becoming more than a joke, a reply would have been nice. Now thats 2 projects I have been burned on :(

    5. Jay Jones on November 20, 2013

      Still nothing and I sent a message to Gary but no reply this is becoming frustrating :(

    6. Jay Jones on November 15, 2013

      Anyone else still waiting in England?

    7. Jay Jones on November 6, 2013

      Still havent recieved my decks and uncut getting a bit miffed now

    8. Reclusive Phoenix (fka Warchild40k) on October 22, 2013

      My prints were all bent at the corner as well. Waste of money.

    9. Derek Blakely on October 21, 2013

      Just got my cards today (Canada) and like Laurie MacDougall and others, I got an art print that did not have any protection and is not bent out of shape with very defined creases. From a distance, and with the light not hitting it, it's fine, but as soon as any light hits it, they become very noticeable. It's really quite distracting.

      There is a discussion of a playing card project going on at if anyone is interested. While that thread started out as a complaint against a specific card project (The Founder's Playing Cards), it has morphed into a general discussion of a) outright fraud on Kickstarter, b) Kickstarter's role in all this, and c) projects like this one where the creator is woefully unprepared for the logistics of dealing with their project.

      Hopefully, creating a discussion outside of Kickstarter that consolodates complaints will be helpful in coming up with long-term solutions. If you decide to add to the discussion there, please be constructive with your comments. It probably won't help to get your pledge from this project, but it may help push Kickstarter into making changes for the benefit of everyone. That Kickstarter needs to be pushed into doing so is one of the topics of discussion.

      Mine finally showed - I'm in the US.
      Prints were fine, cards were fine. I'm actually pretty pleased with the lot.

      I just got mine today(and I'm also in Canada) so, it should arrive within the next few days for other Canadian backers.

    13. Jay Jones on October 15, 2013

      Gary last logged in on the 15th it says. It would have been decent if he replied to these comments.

    14. Derek Blakely on October 15, 2013

      Canadian backer, and still waiting on mine.

      (Continued since I accidentally hit Post...) So now my friend's gift is not just late, but damaged. A frame is not going to do anything to fix the bends. So yay.

      Between the delays and the poor shipping, I'm really regretting spending my money on this one...def won't be backing him again.

      I finally got mine (2 decks + an art print) and am very unhappy with the packaging. The print was thrown into a huge envelope with the decks but no protection other than a piece of foam around the front...which helped the front from being scratched, but that was it. The lack of cardboard meant that the print arrived all bent and banged up from the decks hitting it.

      If I don't get mine by the end of next week, I will definitely be sending Gary a message about it.

    18. Kimberly T on October 8, 2013

      I am also still waiting. Wondering if part of the hold up for my cards is that they were supposed to be signed. Hoping so - I would dearly hate to have to read Gary the riot act in public. :/

      I received mine three weeks ago (US backer). I can't think of any reason why the rest of you haven't unless Gary ran short on product. Of course this is all conjecture because Gary avoids this site like the plague.

    20. Dylan Brooks on October 7, 2013

      Still haven't received mine, and I never got a response to my emails about a change in my shipping address. Not impressed with the level of customer service here.

    21. Jay Jones on October 2, 2013

      Still waiting for mine in England :(

      Received mine yesterday. They do look good and glad they have finally arrived (I'm in Canada btw).

    24. Big Gulp on September 27, 2013

      I just got mine yesterday and the cards look great.

    25. James Cowling on September 25, 2013

      Got my retailer pack this morning in the wilds of the BC Interior. A little bit murky, but otherwise very nice, and I'm proud to carry them in my store. Thanks!

    26. Derek Blakely on September 25, 2013

      Still haven't received mine yet, but I'm chalking that up to living in a different country.

    27. Stephen Miller on September 24, 2013

      I received my cards last week. I am glad to see them, and I am sure I will put them to good use. I am a little disappointed, as the card artwork seems a bit dark or muddy to me. Not as bright as the PDF artworks. Still, I have to say, it is better than nothing.

      I received my cards last week, and they came out great! Thanks for the opportunity to back it up.

    29. Stefan Radermacher on September 17, 2013

      Are these being sent out from GAME LORE LTD via ParcelForce? I just got a shipment mail sent to my Kickstarter email address, and I'm trying to find out what it is

      A good question would be:
      "Have all the cards been sent out yet?"

      Still haven't received mine.

    34. Erin Anderson on September 1, 2013

      Got mine yesterday! Will be nice to have some cards the kids will enjoy checking out.

      Cards arrived today! Thanks for sticking with it guys!

    36. Derek Blakely on August 29, 2013

      Looks like it's not a scam, Bradly.

      Dylan, message Gary and even Michael directly through the e-mails on their Fire Mountain Games website, and title the subject heading with something along the lines of "Changed Mailing Address for Creature Cards - Please Don't Send There".

      Bradly Nuss on August 28, 2013

      This is a complete scam.

    38. Dylan Brooks on August 28, 2013

      How do I change my mailing address for this? I've moved since I backed this kickstarter and need to change the address you're sending it to.

    39. Stephen Miller on August 27, 2013

      As we all know, it has been 13 days since our last update. GenCon, the crucial date mentioned in Gary's last update, ended August 18. That was 9 days ago. One would have hoped that an update would have been posted yesterday, at the latest, telling us the current status. As many have stated, even if the status is just, "Still waiting for cards to arrive," we would be happier than we are now. After the failure of several Kickstarter projects recently, many are beginning to feel that silence means failure, and failure means we backers lose out.

      Nobody wants failure. We want action.

    40. Stephen Miller on August 14, 2013

      Next week, I hope, we backers will start hearing that the cards are actually shipping. If I get mine, I will post here right after we have our "Wow, did we get lucky!" party.

      Fenriswolf on August 8, 2013

      If that was an "update" from Gary, why didn't he post the link himself for this project and his other project? I know ... you can't answer that question. I just find it ironic that he takes the time to have a video clip made in the form of an interview and doesn't even post it on Kickstarter himself. Not surprised, mind you. Just ironic.

    42. Derek Blakely on August 6, 2013

      Gary's update is in the form of an hour long interview...
      For those that want to watch, it's Gary's interview with Rite Publishing. He talks about Throne of Night, how the Creature Cards are doing, and thanks the backers.…

      Mike Callahan on August 1, 2013

      Gary? C'mon man! You should say something sooner! ONCE A WEEK.

      Two weeks before shipping starts. Figure two weeks at most to go through it all then two weeks at most before arrival. Latest order should be there in six weeks.

      Gary....please PLEASE update
      1) when you receive cards from printer
      2) when 25% of the batch is out the door
      3) etc. until 100%

      I recently got my drawing from Michael Clarke, man do I love his work. I need to get more drawings done by him.

    47. Stephen Miller on July 31, 2013

      I got a message from Michael Clarke this evening. We are hoping to get a response from Gary McBride by tomorrow. Mr. Clarke apologizes to all the Creature Card backers for these delays. Though he has no control over things, he realizes how frustrating it can be.
