@Digisloth, so glad your replacement arrived in good order. We're happy to oblige, and thank you guys for supporting us with this! It's warming to read your message, thank you for that. Have a blast playing BARPIG, and let us know how your games with friends go!
Received my new copy yesterday and it arrived unscathed, you guys are amazing! You went above and beyond and I truly did not expect a whole new copy because my box was banged up....excellent backer support! If you do another Kickstarter I’ll definitely be there. You guys rock!
@Oliver, happy to oblige our fans! That's good news on the postage security situation in Germany, thanks for the update
@Johno & Phil
you are really amazing for going so far and answering every komment :D
Update on the package-bombing in germany:
So far the bombers have failed misserably. With several sorted out before reaching destination and the rest either not opend or failed to explode. Until they have just increased the security at the postservices. It's like watching a Supervillain namend "Supervillain" trying to be evil, but accidently doing good...
@jeremy, let us know how the cards faired, and send us pictures by email please, email@example.com
Received the game pack in Singapore, but sadly upon opening saw a few defects on the card box, yet to open to check if the cards are intact.
@Joseph, try https://shop.barpig.eu - if still not, send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The link to purchase more copies seems to be broken.
@Duarte great to hear!! What did the other people in the bar think? ;-)
Received last Friday, played last Saturday. What a BLAST! We actually played it in a bar, and it made the challenges that much more "challenging" :D
@Joshua can't wait!!! @Hamilton great to hear it's arrived! How bad is the damage? Could you email us a picture please? email@example.com
Arrived Malaysia with joy. Terima kasih. Sadly the only issue i have is the corner box was damaged but the cards are intake.
Oh I will. You'll see my gameplay video also, once I have it posted to my YouTube channel. :)
@Joshua, great to hear! Share pics of the mayhem with us, can't wait to see how much fun you guys have!
California here. Game arrived yesterday. Corners barely banged up, but other than that it's perfect. Can't wait to introduce it to my friends this weekend!
@digisloth thanks for the email. Bummer that your package went through that much! @Kaliis also shame the package didn't arrive great - I'm going to PM you to ask more about the packaging btw.
@Everyone, we think what went wrong here was when we packed the games into the plastic sleeves, some of the games had the custom dice and coin placed near the lid, where there's a lot of 'crumple' space should the package take a serious beating. We tested this packaging before and didn't find any issues, yet that was without the custom coin and dice. That's where we think this might be going wrong every now and then. Padded mailers was an option, but then the increased box size would incur higher shipping charges and costs. We've got it figured out for replacement shipments now - live and learn right?
Yeah, USA=Massachusetts. These weren't packed so well, but the game is intact, so that's cool. I *also* have pictures of the box damage.
Things that have space in their boxes really need to go in padded mailers. They may still get dinged up, but it's less likely...
USA- Florida here! Game arrived today and aside from the box being banged up and the lid being separated, all cards were fine! I have emailed a picture of the box damage. Can’t wait to play this weekend.
@Dino, great tip! Thanks for that! Planning to play soon?
USA - New Jersey here. Everything was fine.
The stickers unfolded in a hour under two big books. Hope that helps
@Everyone RE Stickers - they were folded around the pack when packaging. It might look bad but the sticker film will work fine on any surface once you peel the backing off (that will carry the fold).
@Dawn & @Katherine thanks for your emails. @Dawn we can't wait to hear how that gaming night goes! Give us all the deets and take plenty of pictures!
Thanks for the fast reply on the damaged box. Sending email with pictures. Woot! Furthest West! Hoping to play this weekend but for sure on the 15th. I host a community game night and a friend in the area also got a copy so we might have 2 games going.
USA - Pennsylvania here. Box corner damaged but cards inside are ok. More problems with what was outside the box. Stickers were folded in half and the loose cards were damaged. I'll send pics.
@Dawn, thanks for the update! How bad was the crushing? Could you send us photos please via email, firstname.lastname@example.org - we think we've figured out where things are going wrong, as it's only a handful of backers (about 2%). You are the first to report receipt from the US, and I dare say the furthest West BARPIG has gone! Plans to play this weekend?
Game arrived today. Box was crushed but the cards made it ok!
@Shane, thanks and noted! We're learning a lot and already have improvements for dispatch when we work on the expansion. Check your inbox for our PM btw.
@Oliver, whoa! That's not great! I'm glad they didn't identify BARPIG as explosives... and I'm not going to make a pun based something as serious as that. Thanks for the heads up. I'm sure our packs will arrive at their destinations all the same.
Fun Fact: The guy at the post-office said the package looks dangerous because of its shape...
Not-so-Fun Fact: That's not even far off because some dudes have been trying to blackmail DHL with them shipping bombs to random places here in Germany...
Ya no problem, can do. Anything traveling that far needs some wrap gents:)
Sadly not this weekend, hopefully one night during the week though!!
@Shane, that's a bummer, please email us pictures of the damage to email@example.com? It seems to be a one-off thing with our shipments, majority are arriving in good condition. It is something we're taking with us when we do the expansion pack for sure! You gonna be playing this weekend?
Arrived in Canada, a pretty bashed up box, cards are fine. Maybe next time, use some bubble wrap, but thank you all the same. Looks great, cant wait to play!
Brilliant Ugo, thanks! We're getting word from Canada that's it's arriving there too. Expect US this weekend/next week
arrived in Dublin, Ireland today
@Andrew, you can expect your reward to arrive within the next 2-3 weeks on average. Let us know if you haven't received your reward by Christmas, we'll see what we can do. Delivery times are very much reliant on international postal services, and experience tells us it should take about 2-3 weeks usually.
@Anthony, brilliant thanks for the heads up!! =) Gonna play this weekend?
Game received glasgow - UK
When should the USA backers expect to receive their copy?
Picked my game up this afternoon: it was really a lot of fun to meet you and play! Thanks!
@Oliver, you're welcome! Share pics on our facebook page when you get a chance (www.facebook.com/barpiggame) - You gave us the idea first tho ;-P
Ok, ok hooold up! Guys! I made a special request regarding the drawing on my "spirit of the [failful] liver" card. AND I just got a letter holding the card with the requested drawing!!! I never ever EVER expected to have this favour come true :'D. Thank you @Johno & @Phil that's so awesome!
@everyone, remember the place for our most recent news before it reaches our updates remains our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/barpiggame
@M.Boyd, we've just finished shipping to our Dutch customers as that used the national postal system here. Our international orders are ready to go, pending a few last address confirmations we will receive this weekend. Monday our contact from Acendia Post will come round to pick up those deliveries, and they'll be on their way to you!
Once we have everything on it's way, we'll send an update to all backers letting everyone know that the packages are on their way.
@John, glad to hear! Bummer that the box got a bit bumped up, we'll let PostNL know about this.
Where has shipping begun?
I see a few have received but haven't seen a shipping update yet...
Got it yesterday and (as @Rik) the boxes got bumped a bit, nothing to serious.
@Rik, fantastic, can't wait to hear about your fun game adventures, sorry to hear that the box was a little damaged but glad you love the cards!
Got the game! The box got a little damaged in the mail (edges got bumped) but the cards look and feel great! I really like the coin as well. Definitely adds to the whole.
@Khajiin, thank you so much for the kind words! And it was great meeting you, we had a pretty epic game!
I picked up my game yesterday at Spiel in Essen.
I initially backed it only because of the art and humour but after playing one round with the creators the game won a place in my heart.
With the right people (and drinks) it can be incredible fun.
@Oliver, backer surveys will be sent most likely this week, definitely by next. We're not using backerkit, just Kickstarter's own services.
has the backerkit survey already been started?
or will it be up soon?
