Nightfall Shipping Solution

35 likes

Welcome to 2015 and the first Ogre Designer's Edition update of the year!

In Update #176, we mentioned that we were working on a solution to the Nightfall sponsored sheet delivery problem. We wanted to make sure we had a feasible way forward before getting any hopes up, and we're very pleased to announce that we -- Steve Jackson Games -- have taken over the shipping of the Nightfall counter sheets . . . and the first sets have already started shipping!

If you pre-ordered the counters with Fire Mountain Games and don't yet have your sheets- do not fear. We have their list of unfulfilled orders are working from that. We will post a comment to this update once the last of the pre-ordered sheets have been shipped. If we have any questions about your order, we'll contact you for more information.

Additionally, the book promised by Fire Mountain Games is being produced by Steve Jackson Games. We have the Fire Mountain Games materials and have started work on completing the project. Once we have finished we'll release this in PDF. At this time we don't have an expected release date for the PDF, but when we have information we'll post an update here.

Thanks for your patience!

More ACD Sheets Are Here!

11 likes

TODAY is the day! 

We’re releasing more ACD sheets for Ogre Designer's Edition into the wild at 2 p.m. Central Standard Time TODAY, Nov. 12!!!

To increase the chances successfully purchasing these sheets for folks who didn't get one during the last go-around, we put some guidelines in place. These guidelines have changed, so here’s a quick update.

• We are limiting purchases of the ACD sheets to ONE PER ORDER through Monday, Nov. 17. Originally, the limit was only during the first 24 hours, but we want to make sure our KS backers have enough of a window to buy the sheets. We can’t promise everyone who wants one will get one, but we’re doing our best to give you the opportunity. These sheets will be visible only to our KS backers during that window, so hopefully we can make sure that if you want one you can get it. 

Warehouse 23 will now limit your purchase to a single ACD sheet per order. If you still need sheets after W23 sells out, your FLGS can order them them from ACD directly.

• At the end of the KS-exclusive window, the order limit will revert to Warehouse 23 standards.

ACD has set their price for the sheet at $10, and we're now matching their price to support our partners.

• I’m still invoking Wheaton’s Law here. If you already received your ACD sheet, let someone else get theirs, okay?

And because I know everyone is curious, we are still creating a solution to the Nightfall sponsored sheet issues, and we’re working to get the scenario contest selections out for playtesting. 

I’m keeping the details a bit close to avoid disappointing y’all.

Thank you all for your patience!

ACD Sheets Are Coming Back!

When we released the Ogre Designer's Edition ACD sponsored sheets into the wild a few weeks ago, we were stunned at the response, as were the servers at Warehouse 23.

With that in mind, we reached out to ACD. They graciously sold us 500 sheets to restock the shelves in Warehouse 23, and we’ll be releasing those sheets at 2 p.m. Central Standard Time on Wednesday, Nov. 12.

To increase the chances for folks who want a sheet and didn't get it during the last go-around, we’re going to put a few guidelines in place.

  • I’m going to invoke Wheaton’s Law here. Don’t be a… well, if you’re not sure what Wheaton’s Law is, go read it. If you already got your ACD sheet, hang on for a bit and let someone else get theirs, okay?
  • We are limiting purchases of the ACD sheets to ONE PER ORDER during the first 24 hours. These sheets will only be visible to our KS backers during that first 24 hours, so hopefully we can make sure that if you want one you can get it. Yes, I know. That wasn’t a limit we placed on the LAST release, and we learned a lesson on that. If you order more than one sheet, we will cancel your entire order. I know it sounds cranky but there you have it.
  • At the end of that first 24 hour period, the order limit will revert to Warehouse 23 standards.
  • ACD has set their price for the sheet at $10, and we're now matching their price to support our partners.

Now, with all the cranky stuff out of the way, we are still working hard to move Ogre projects along and I’ll keep you updated as much as possible!

The fans have been patiently waiting as we've worked on the new edition of Car Wars, and now it's time to push it out on stage and see how it dances.

I'm Car Wars Line Editor Scott Haring, and I will be demonstrating/playtesting the new 6th Edition of Car Wars at BoardGameGeek.con, held Nov. 19-23, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency DFW Airport in beautiful Arlington, TX. Scheduling is still a bit up in the air, but we will have sessions on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and maybe more. I'm very excited about this, and I hope you all are, too! Stay tuned for further developments as they are confirmed.

Car Wars Classic Now Available!

...But not for long. The Car Wars Classic boxed set finally arrived at our warehouse, and is now available at Warehouse 23! Hurry, because supplies are limited.

Speaking of limited supplies, our hobby distributor is already sold out of Car Wars Classic, so the copies showing up at your local game store are going to be the last of them until the hastily ordered reprint shows up. Next April.

Moral of the story -- get your Car Wars Classic now!
