Update 177 - ONLY FOR US AND CANADA BACKERS - Shipping information from Ship Naked - 5

Posted by Monolith Board Games LLC (Creator)

Greetings Conan Backers!

We are continuing to ship US and Canadian reward packages for Conan for Monolith.

Due to the complexity and volume of this campaign it is shipping over a number of weeks.

Please do not submit a Status request for your order until after we’ve processed all orders and posted the Post-Fulfillment update.

We continued processing packages the week of November 7th - November 11th. We are taking care to pack your reward package carefully and accurately. We’ve processed about 74% of the orders so far and many of you have already received shipment notifications with your tracking numbers.

Canadian orders will go through our Ontario depot to provide the Customs-Friendly service you’re looking for. By the end of this week we've completed most Canadian orders so if you're in Canada, you may have received a shipping notification. Please note that the tracking from these notifications will start working once they're across the border into Canada (around the 18th at the earliest, after customs clearance - sometimes it takes a few days and sometimes a week or more). After they depart from our depot in Ontario the tracking should work right to your door.

Based on our current progress, we still anticipate completing all US and Canadian reward package shipments by mid-November (the week of the 14th - 18th). As we reach the end of the campaign fulfillment, we will get to the most complicated orders (larger numbers of unique items and total number of items). We always take care to have our staff ready to handle this volume including bringing in even more folks to help move that forward.

We will provide Monolith with updates about once a week so they can post them here for you to advise of our progress and keep you up to date if we run into any snags.

If you receive your package and any items are missing or damaged, please visit www.ShipNaked.com/replacements

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ship Naked directly at www.ShipNaked.com/help or by calling us at 1-844-SHIP NAKED (toll-free in the US and Canada) or +01 (603) 792-0037 Our offices are open from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday Eastern Time. We strive to respond to all requests by the close of the next business day, so if we're on the line or out of the office when you call, please leave a voicemail.

Greetings Conan Backers!

We are presently shipping US and Canadian reward packages for Conan for Monolith.

Due to the complexity and volume of this campaign it is continuing to ship over a number of weeks. As our staff is focused on packing and shipping your products, please do not submit a Status request for your order until after we’ve processed all orders and posted the Post-Fulfillment update.

We continued processing packages the week of October 31st - November 4th. We are taking care to pack your reward package carefully and accurately. We’ve processed a bit over 55% of the orders so far and many of you have already received shipment notifications with your tracking numbers.

Canadian orders will go through our Ontario depot to provide the Customs-Friendly service you’re looking for, so, as mentioned in the previous update, those take about an additional week or two to process.

New Kickstarter by Monolith

Posted by Monolith Board Games LLC (Creator)

  Greetings adventurers!

Tomorrow is the launch date of our new Kickstarter!

Mythic Battles: Pantheon transports you into the world of mythological Greece, but with a twist. The Titans have escaped their prison and have destroyed Olympus in a cataclysmic war with the Gods. The land is ravaged, and the gates of the Underworld have been flung open. Chaos reigns.

You play a fallen God.

Recruit your warriors from among the most famous Monsters and Heroes to ever live, and quest for fragments of divine essence to regain your past power. Will Achilles fight by your side? Heracles? The Medusa or the many-headed Hydra? Will your protector be Cerberus, the guardian of the Underworld? Perhaps Leonidas and his Spartans? Who will you lead to glory?

The same sculptors who worked on Conan return to outdo themselves in this new game. There are many Monsters, Gods and other large models for these world-class talents to showcase their abilities on, and they have certainly risen to the challenge! The game boards too are beautifully rendered by the same artists who worked on Conan, and are fully compatible with that game.

And this is only the beginning!

The Kickstarter starts tomorrow, November 1st, 3:00PM EST

Discover the trailer!

Update 174 - Shipping, rulebooks, and other topics

Posted by Monolith Board Games LLC (Creator)
144 likes

Greetings Adventurers,

First of all, here is an update on the dispatch process: 

  • Europe/South America/Africa : Almost all the parcels have been sent out.
  • USA/Canada : The dispatch started last week but has been slightly delayed because of a container held in customs for inspection. We are waiting for a shipping plan from Ship Naked but 25% of the parcels have been sent out.
  • Asia : All the parcels have been sent out.
  • Australia/New Zeland : The dispatch will start in the next few days.

Regarding the new version of the rulebooks:

  • The 2nd version should be available mid-November in French, and in English before the end of November.- We will create a request form for those of you who want to receive a hard copy of the new rulebooks. This will be totally free of charge.

Regarding the content of the 1st wave:

  • Except for the content of the Barbarian box, the rest (King content, Stretch Goals, Add-ons) contains components in both English and French. You can discard the language you don't need. When possible, we created tiles with different colors in French and English for those who want to use all the tiles in their home-made scenarios.- There are extra cards (blanks, or with only the title of the card). Again, this is extra cards for the creation of home-made scenarios.

We let some errors slip in during the Kickstarter campaign:

  • There is no Character Sheet for the Kothian Archer. He is an Ally and only gets a tile.
  • There is no Spell card for Salomé.

As for the wave 1 Add-ons:

  • We originally planned on shipping them to you with the second wave. During the month of June, our production manager told us we could include them in the first wave, production-wise. We thought quite a long time about it and concluded that the backers may prefer to receive their add-ons in the first wave instead of the second, even if the advertised scenarios weren't available yet (to have them in their hands, to paint them, to create their own scenarios...). These scenarios will be available on our website starting January 2017. We understand that this may create questions but including the add-ons in Wave 1 has been heavily requested and we hope it will please most of you.
  • We forgot to include the Life Points token in the add-ons. We will offer you a solution much like the one for the rulebooks. 

On other topics:

  • The Spells for Pelias are in the Stretch Goals cards
  • The extra miniature in the Stretch Goals is a Spartan from our upcoming Kickstarter Mythic Battles : Pantheon. It can not (yet) be played in Conan.

Regarding after-sales service:

  • At the moment, we have received a little over 100 requests for missing or damaged components. We are sorry for those of you who are affected and we will send replacements as soon as possible.

We are seeing on the social networks a lot of pictures of unboxing, painted minis and people playing and enjoying the game. This is our best reward and we thank you for that :)

We hope that the game will be as much fun for you as it is for us :)

Until next time folks!

Mid-Campaign Update

Greetings Conan Backers!

We are presently shipping US and Canadian reward packages for Conan for Monolith.

Due to the complexity and volume of this campaign it is scheduled to ship over a number of weeks. As our staff is focused on packing and shipping your products, please do not submit a Status request for your order until after we’ve processed all orders and posted the Post-Fulfillment update.

We are taking care to pack your reward package carefully and accurately. We’ve processed a bit over a third of the orders so far and many of you have already received shipment notifications with your tracking numbers.

Canadian orders will go through our Ontario depot to provide the Customs-Friendly service you’re looking for, so those take about an additional week or two to process.

We anticipate completing all US and Canadian reward package shipments by mid-November (the week of the 14th - 18th). We will provide Monolith with updates about once a week so they can post them here for you to advise of our progress and keep you up to date if we run into any snags.
