      To everyone who's sent me an email, thank you for your patience. I've been busy with Gen Con and I have large backlog of emails to get to, but I promise I will address all of your concerns as soon as I can.

      @Martin Lightheart: Please send me an email at and I'd be happy to send you replacements for the damaged components.

    4. Tamara J. Cardinal

      Arrived here in Chile today.

      I'm going to need to get some wood glue. My red star has one tip broken completely off in the bag, and a second tip broken but still attached. The green star has one tip broken but attached. The blue star has one tip cracked on one end. Only the yellow star is completely intact. They either came that way from the factory, or got broken as the contents jostled during shipping.

      Hi Brenna I'm in the same boat as James. I just sent you an email.

    10. Brenna Asplund Collaborator on

      At this point, all of the games should have been delivered. If you still haven't received your package, please contact me directly at so I can take care of it.

      @PK Levine: We will be at Gen Con, yes! We won't have anything new for Near and Far there (other than Amber Mines) but we'll be running demos of our next game, Haven, in the booth!

    11. James Adam

      I have not received a shipping notification nor have I received any packages. I am in Ontario, Canada - any updates as to what is going on?

    12. PK Levine

      Ryan, are you going to be at Gen Con? Any plans there for demos, promo cards, etc. for N&F?

    13. 3 Minute board games on

      Got mine in NZ, easily the most painless KS i've been involved with.

      If one has not done the Near & Far campaign beyond the intro map with their partner, should we add Amber Mines in for the duration of the campaign?

    15. Alan Paul Underwood on

      I had my copy 3 weeks now its a nice addon

    16. Matthew Hitchman on

      Still awaiting a copy in Wales, UK. I received my shipping info on the 20th June. When do I get concerned?

    17. Jacob Climer on

      Haven’t heard anything yet here in Southern California.
      Hope to have the delivery soon :)

      ++1 re Canadian shipping. I have not heard anything about my shipping notice. An update would be appreciated.

    19. Kate

      +1 re Canadian shipping. Though I have a friend in Edmonton who got his and someone else who is in Vancouver got theirs. I, too, am in Vancouver and not gotten a notification nor the game. I ordered both the Original N&F plus Amber Mines. I wonder if those who pledged for more than the expansion are having theirs take longer?

      Any update on Canadian shipping?

    21. Nicholas Rossell on

      Still no shipping notice in Michigan's upper peninsula, which is bizarre because my friend who lives 15 minutes away got her copy...

      A shipping label was created for me a month ago, but there has been no movement on it since.

      Arrived in Sydney, Australia. Safe and sound. =)

      So, if using expanded tokens in A&B they replace 1,2 and 3 results. Any harm giving players the choice of token or what’s below it? That way we get more options instead of just different ones.

    26. Altono

      Arrived in Vancouver! Looks great

      Received our package today. We got our first game of Above and Below in with the new expansions. Loved what it added to the game!

      Can’t wait to try Near and Far!

      Got mine today, TX,USA - 100% in order, after a week of watching it go up and down all FL

    29. strahdd on

      Disappointed in the way this was shipped. My Above and Below punch board was bent because there was no extra padding in the box so now I have a few tokens that are bent.

      Can’t wait to play the expansion though.

      Hello Ryan,
      When do we suspect issue with delivery? I am in New Jersey and have not seen anything yet.

    31. Missing avatar


      Hi Ryan, sent an email to Brenna regarding an invoice, no reply yet. Could you help ? I only have 8 more days to comply to customs.

      Just noticed that my main N&F box is crushed in on the side. Pretty poor padding in the main box to be honest. Doesn't seem to have affected the components though.

      Package arrived - Brisbane Australia. This is despite the last tracking notice being nearly 2 weeks ago from Sydney. Package has been "In Transit" since then apparently.

      Got mine. Siskiyou county, Ca! Can't wait to play.

    37. Phillosmaster on

      Got mine in CT USA. The shipping notice came the night before it arrived.

    38. Matt Gomes

      Received here in San Francisco Bay Area. Can't wait to play!

    39. Federico Damiani on

      @Matt Bauer mine is also moving and in Florida right now.

      Hello everyone! Please email if you have any questions or issues with your delivery.

      Note: There should be two packs of replacement cards. One of the packs says "Replace the cards in the box" even though there are no cards that it replaces in the box. It's a bit confusing. That's the "Handy Headwear" promo. It's got "HH" in the bottom corner.

      @Richard Clark- Yes, you can add the expansion mid-campaign.

      @Chris Peters -Please email

    41. Silas Holesovsky on

      Thank you for another great game!

    42. Tarra Scott

      I just got mine today in Taiwan. Can't wait to unbox it!

    43. Jack Futty

      I found both of the replacement packs, but I didn't see all of the cards they were replacing in the box. Are some of these promos, or am I just insane?

      Received the expansion and replacement cards in SFBayArea today. Looks great! Now I just have to wait for the family to gather (camp, vacations, etc.) once more to play it.

    45. Sarah Reed

      I got my expansion today, but it's just the expansion box. No replacement card pack.

    46. Chris Peters on

      OK.... somehow I ended up with two copies of the cardboard punch-outs and zero copies of the Underforest and Desert book. I thought maybe the expansion was two punch boards, but looking closer I realize that they are the same board--I just have two copies.

      Who do I contact to get this resolved?

    47. Chris Peters on

      OK.... reviewing my pledge I see that there's a printed Underforest and Desert book that was supposed to ship with my pledge but I haven't received it yet. Possibly it's coming later... this warrants more investigation.

    48. Chris Peters on

      I got the expansion to Above and Below add-on, but I don't know where to get the "Underforest and Desert Labyrinth Encounters" book? The rules on the red raven website point you to the backers of Above and Below kickstarter page, but I wasn't a backer of Above and Below... is there someplace Amber Mines backers can get the rulebook?
