Backers,

Ship is almost to port in US

The ship with Damage Report is arriving to port next week.  I received a confirmation that everything appears to be on track for a mid-April arrival to our door for fulfillment! Our hope continues to be to have the game in your hands by the end of the month.

International Tabletop Day 

In case you missed it - most of your friendly local game stores are running events today in celebration of International Tabletop Day. This is the 2nd year for the Geek&Sundry / Will Wheaton inspired game day. Check out this link to visit the tabletop site and see who is holding events in your area: http://www.tabletopday.com/ 

Break From Reality Games will be at the Uptown Espresso & Gameporium (3845 Delridge Way in Seattle, WA) all day today with our very soon to be released game: Damage Report. Event starts at 10AM - midnight! Come in, play games, and earn a free drink, a fresh baked pretzel, or a 20% discount on any game. We also have some cool promos to give away! 

Uptown Espresso & Gameporium 

We are also demoing our current Kickstarter Project: Uptown Espresso! It is a real time card game for 2-4 players that plays in under 20 minutes. Players are baristas making drinks and ringing out customers, competing to see who can make $50 first. Check out our Kickstarter page here: UPTOWN ESPRESSO The art is done for this game, and we just need to raise funds to print it. We are also looking to raise a bit of extra funds to create and place some art in the Gameporium. 

Check out our Facebook page to learn more about the event at the Gameporium today - if you are in Seattle, we would love to see you! 

Cheers, Eric Salyers

Games are on their way!

Backers!

Great news... 

Games are on the Boat

Last Week we received word that Damage Report is on its way to the US.  Expected arrival to us is April 18th (this is actual delivery - including customs clearance).  We will be focusing on getting these turned around and out to you immediately.  We hope to have them to you before the end of next month.

Uptown Espresso & Gameporium

If you live in the Seattle Area, come by and check out the advance copy, and meet Alex the designer!  We have just one copy in store - but we think you will be excited to see it.  Our store is open till 10 PM Mon-Thurs, and midnight on Friday and Saturday.  Located right off the West Seattle bridge, it is only 8 minutes from downtown: 3845 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106.

Uptown Espresso Game

Our next project just went live this weekend.  Check out our project here!  The Uptown Espresso game is a real-time card game in which players are working as baristas.  The goal of the game is to earn $50 first! Every 15 seconds, players may do only one of 5 actions:  Stock, Make drinks, Ring out customers, Take new orders, or trade with another player. 

Come take a look at the project.  The game is only $20, and you will be supporting not only the creation of the game - but improvements at the Gameporium as well.

Final Thoughts...

Thank you all for being patient.  I know many of you have voiced your extreme anticipation of this game, and how willing you are to wait for it to be right.  Let me assure you, the game is right.  Your patience is about to pay off.  We at Break From Reality can not wait to hear, and see your response.  Only a few weeks now... 
Cheers,
Eric Salyers

Update #47

Second Request for Country Location

Comment

Backers -

271 of you have provided us your nation ship to location.  Thank you very much - you can ignore this second request. We are hoping to get at least another 229 more before making shipping decisions.  This is especially important if you are outside the US. 

What nation do you want your game shipped to?  - (Survey link)

Panda returns to work next week (we hope/think) and we want to be ready with this information when they get back in.

The games are all printed, all components are there - they just need to box them, wrap them, and put them on a pallet. We should be reporting in-transit by the middle of next week.  Hopefully.

Please help us by filling out the one question survey.

Pledge Manager

We have not yet asked for your addresses... no backer survey was sent.  We are awaiting completion of the Pledge Manager to get final shipping addresses.  We have been told that this should happen this week.  We will be in touch soon if so!

Cheers,
~Break From Reality Games~

There are also non-science-fiction strategy, miniatures, and more on the docket, in fact, we find ourselves already with more games to make than time. In addition to receiving all future games we produce for life, we would like to meet you the conferences we will be attending throughout the year. We are planning a party for everyone attending Origins, GenCon, and other conventions/conferences next year as well! Also, we will ask you to help contribute to our success by requesting your participation in our play-test program, where you can provide us candid feedback and direction for the games we have in production and what future games we should be making! This reward level will become increasingly limited, as it is our intent to have only 25 members. SHIPPING? INCLUDED.
