Campaign Update #73 - Shipping Update Cont.

Posted by Allen Chang (Collaborator)

Hi all, this is Allen again for your weekly shipping update.

US-Bound Shipment

I had a call with GTS this week for a status update on fulfilment. To both GTS and our surprise, the cargo is still in rail transit. Sherwood logistics reached out to GTS earlier in the week stating that the shipment should arrive in a few days. On GTS' side, everything is ready to go, and everyone is just waiting for the goods to come so we can get the rewards dispatched as soon as possible.

Some backers have reported that CoolStuffInc has listed the game on their site. CoolStuffInc has not physically received the games yet as the retail copies of the game are on the same shipment as the Kickstarter editions.

GTS Distribution is both our fulfilment partner and our distributor, so they can tightly control the release schedule of the game. They won't physically release the game to retail until fulfilment to our backers is complete.

Some backers enquired if the retail version has the same print that the Kickstarter backers receive. Yes, we have produced both editions in the same print run.

EU-Bound Shipment

I got a report back from Annika this week that almost all EU rewards (except for three orders) have shipped. If you have not received a dispatch confirmation email, please email us (

AU-Bound Shipment

VR Distribution has sent out all of the backer rewards. If you have not received your game within the next few days, please get in touch with us (

Rest of the World

ExChain has finally transferred our account and also cleared the shipping funds that were held by the Dongguan warehouse. We've provided all the paperwork, and we are just waiting for the goods to be released to the warehouse for the dispatch process to begin.

Support Emails

Apologies for the delay if you have sent us a support email this past week. We've had a higher than usual volume of support these past few weeks due to our other Kickstarter campaign. Please expect a response from us within the next few days.

      @Joshua - There is not at this time. According to the update here they speculate that they will receive the games in a couple days but we may not get an update on that until this coming Sunday. If anything I would reach out to Allen directly or try in the general comments section. Allen is pretty good at getting back to you if reach to him, I just wouldn't use the KS messaging system as it isn't very good.

      If I had to speculate, and if things go as GTS has said, I'm thinking the 2nd week of July we will start to see US games Shipped and/or starting to arrive because of the July 4th holiday coming up. I'm assuming once GTS gets the games they will need to individually pack them based on what we pledged for and then will either ship them out in groups or all at once.

      These are just guesses on my part, but I know like other's I'm eagerly awaiting this game to arrive. Especially being that I backed the original campaign, so, the wait has been long. I will say that I'm happy to hear from others that are getting the game and enjoying it.

      Is there an estimated arrival time for backers in the US?

      Mine has arrived in perfect condition in the UK and the team at my the board games café I work in are keen to get it on the table.
